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. Unified sensor for atmospheric turbulence and refractivity characterization

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT008

    MZA partnered with the Michigan Technological University (MTU) proposes development and testing of key components for our unified Atmospheric Refractivity and Turbulence Sensor (ARTS.) Software upgrades will be made to MZA’s DELTA-Sky sensor to enable atmospheric refraction measurements in addition to existing turbulence profiling. The illuminator assembly to implement the ARTS probe laser ...

  2. Unified Kinetic/Continuum Flow Solver with Adaptive Cartesian Mesh for Hypersonic Flows in the Earth Atmosphere

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T019

    The design of future hypersonic vehicles requires detailed understanding of flow regimes ranging from rarefied to continuum. Hypervelocity flows are characterized by high temperatures, real gas effects, nonequilibrium chemistry, and ionization. The goal of this project is to develop unified kinetic/continuum solution methods with automatic domain decomposition for a wide range of Air Force applic ...

  3. Ultra-High Speed Direct Digital Synthesizer MMIC with High Dynamic Range for Arbitrary Waveform Generation

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF14AT03

    The recent success of ultra-high speed direct digital synthesizers (DDS) provides excellent solutions to waveform generation directly at radar bands. An arbitrary waveform generators operating at clock frequency close to 52 Gs/s with bandwidth greater than 26 GHz and dynamic range close to 80 dB would greatly improve transmitter performance for applications such as telemetry and multi-purpose RF s ...

  4. Ultrahigh Efficiency Quantum Dot Multi-photon Photovoltaics using Nipi Lateral Architecture

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT20

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...

  5. Ultradense Plasmonic Integrated Devices and Circuits

    SBC: ULTIMARA INC            Topic: AF08BT18

    We propose to develop ultradense plasmonic integrated devices and circuits for optical interconnect compatible with the electronic circuitry. In our proposal, we will employ engineered metallic nanostructures that combine energy concentration by plasmonic lenses and retardation-based plasmonic resonances to even further boost the efficiency of materials exhibiting optical nonlinearity. These plas ...

  6. UAV Guidance on GPUs by Nominal Belief-State Optimization

    SBC: Apolent Corporation            Topic: AF09BT06

    We apply the theory of partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs) to the design of guidance algorithms for controlling the motion of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with on-board sensors for tracking multiple ground targets. While POMDPs are intractable to optimize exactly, principled approximation methods can be devised based on Bellman’s principle. We introduce a new approximation ...

  7. Two-color Infrared Laser Arrays for Scene Projection

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A17AT018

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (> 1Kx1K), response time < 1 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas. MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range. Resistor arrays suffer from low frame ...

  8. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...

  9. Toolset For Prediction of Carbon-Carbon Aeroshell Properties Based On Constituent Materials And Manufacturing Process Parameters

    SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF19AT021

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are used in the fabrication of aeroshells and thermal protection systems (TPS) in hypersonic and atmospheric reentry applications because they maintain their strength at elevated temperatures and have desirable thermal conductivity properties. Although these materials have been used in mission-critical components for decades, the effects of variations in processing m ...

  10. Three-Dimensional Measurement of Fluid Density Distribution

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF16AT06

    We propose to develop a 3D tomographic background-orientated Schlieren measurement technique, including hardware setup and post-processing software to produce 3D visualization of compressible flow features in subsonic, transonic, and supersonic wind tunn...
