The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY24 is not expected to be complete until March, 2025.

Download all SBIR.gov award data either with award abstracts (290MB) or without award abstracts (65MB). A data dictionary and additional information is located on the Data Resource Page. Files are refreshed monthly.

The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.

  1. Low Level Signal Detection for Passive Electro-Optical Space-based Surveillance

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corporation and the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) are proposing development and feasibility demonstration of advanced algorithms for the detection of vibration signatures in scattered light. The algorithms are being developed for applications including space-based electro-optical (EO)/infrared (IR) sensing at high frame rates and extremely low signal-to-n ...

  2. Biologically-inspired Integrated Vision System

    SBC: SPECTRAL IMAGING LABORATORY            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV) imaging sensors that sample the radiation field in multiple modes: spectral, temporal, polarization, and detailed object shape. These multimodal sensors are to be deployed on high altitude drones to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. Smaller versio ...

  3. Compact, Low-Cost THz Test System

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I STTR project, we propose to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low cost, compact, time-domain terahertz (TD-THz) spectrometer specifically for the characterization of semiconductor materials over a range of temperatures, electric fields, and magnetic fields. In phase I, we will configure fiber optic coupled TD-THz instrumentation to make measurements on a sampl ...

  4. Soft and Elastomeric Intramuscular Electrode with Therapeutic Delivery Capability

    SBC: TDA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A13AT019

    Approximately 5-6% of military injuries involve some form of major peripheral nerve injury with little chance of spontaneous healing. Currently these injuries lead to major impairment of voluntary muscle function in the limbs and extremities, making tasks of walking, reaching, grasping, etc. very difficult or impossible for many patients. It is not enough to focus therapeutic treatment on the se ...

  5. Oxygen Production and Delivery on Demand

    SBC: GLOBAL RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT INC            Topic: DHA17B005

    This proposal is in response to the Defense Health Agency 2017 Phase I SBIR topic 17B-005.The approach is the use of a membrane oxygen pump using newly developed nano-thickness membranes with all the layers less than 1 micron total.Nanometer thickness membranes enable more oxygen output per surface area at temperatures of 300-600 C than current state-of-the -art 600-800 C membranes that are 50-300 ...

  6. Reconfigurable / cognitive optical communications

    SBC: VULCAN WIRELESS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT010

    This proposal will outline a bi-directional software defined Free Space Optics (FSO) laser communications testbed with flexible optical elements and reprogrammable waveform and signal processing elements. Vulcan Wireless Inc. currently manufacturers a 1550nm, eye safe, software defined Laser Communications Testbed MD-LC-1 and will use this as a basis for the Phase 1 effort. We will also be teaming ...

  7. Rapid Nondestructive Inspection of Traditionally Uninspectable Adhesively-Filled Composite Joints

    SBC: THERMAL WAVE IMAGING INC            Topic: AF18BT016

    NDI of composite Pi/T-Joints presents significant challenges to existing inspection technologies resulting in a barrier to implementation in production. We will investigate feasibility of developing an active thermography NDI solution for real-world inspection of composite structures with T / Pi- joints during the manufacturing process (both green and cured states). Based on the extensive experien ...

  8. High Precision Remote Cardiopulmonary Monitoring through combined iPPG and Low Power Radar

    SBC: Cardiac Motion, LLC            Topic: AF19AT003

    Vital sign, such as respiration rate and heart rate, provide important indications of the physiological and mental conditions of an Airman. Being able to understand the physiological and mental conditions of an operator is therefore of vital importance to improving the efficiency and efficacy of future Air Force operations. Current state-of-the-practice in continuous cardiopulmonary vital sign mon ...

  9. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: APPLIED OPTIMIZATION, INC.            Topic: AF19AT008

    The research objective of the proposed work is to increase the efficiency of the laser return of a Sodium Guide Star Laser (SGSL) reflected off the sodium layer for increased reliability and applicability of the artificial guide star technique. During Phase I, we will demonstrate the concept of maximizing the SGSL signal returns using numerical simulations that account for the effects of atmospher ...

  10. Embedded Device Isolation for Trusted High-Assurance (EDITH)

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: AF19AT013

    Current techniques for supporting Multi-Level Security (MLS) on embedded devices rely on maintaining secure connections back to centralized servers or dedicated computers for managing authentication and access controls. To provide the embedded devices with the capability to handle content of differing security levels directly on device, the operating system (OS) must properly and securely isolate ...
