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. Efficient and Faster Methods for Performing General Wave-Optics Propagation

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18BT004

    We will develop hybrid wave propagation approach that implements FFT and EMA (Efficient Matrix Algorithms) propagators in a fashion that is transparent to the user but insures the highest efficiency and accuracy for a given propagation problem. We will develop rules to decide which propagation approach is ideal for a given situation. The propagation algorithms will be coded in Vulkan/CUDA and C++ ...

  2. Wave-Optic Propagation Computation Enabled by Machine Learning Algorithms (WOPA)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: AF18BT004

    To address the U.S. Air Force need for Developing innovative wave-optics Propagation methods to model laser systems that are faster, efficient and more accurate, Luminit, LLC, and University of Southern California (USC) propose to develop Wave-Optic Propagation Computation Enabled by Machine Learning Algorithms (WOPA). The proposed algorithms will be based on cutting off redundant frequencies upon ...

  3. Regional Radio Frequency Attenuation and Interference Monitor (RF-AIM)

    SBC: Silvus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT005

    Silvus Technologies and the University of California Los Angeles propose a system design and a rapid development path for the Regional Radio Frequency Attenuation and Interference Monitor, or ‘RF-AIM’. RF-AIM is intended to provide continuous wide area awareness of RF spectrum availability in the presence of arbitrary interference and attenuation from natural or man-made causes. The t ...

  4. Carbon Nanotube FET Modeling and RF circuits

    SBC: CARBON TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF18BT006

    The proposed work aims at detailed investigation of Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistor (CNTFET) device design and its impact on Radio-frequency (RF) circuit performance in comparison to Si-MOSFETs and related circuits at the same channel lengths. The goal is to establish a geometry scalable CNTFET compact model for RF circuit design and determine its parameters based on characteristics from b ...

  5. Clearance of Aircraft Stores Carriage under Uncertainty

    SBC: CMSOFT, INC.            Topic: AF18BT008

    The main objective of this STTR effort is three-fold. First, to develop and demonstrate in Phase I a Bayesian methodology exploiting flight test data in order to identify critical store carriage tests and clear non-critical store carriage configurations by updated analysis. Second, to extend in Phase II the scope of this methodology to viscous flows with analysis enriched using analytical sensitiv ...

  6. Lasers Based on Gas or Liquid Filled Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibers

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18BT015

    We propose a compact, monolithic, power scalable, hollow core fiber-gas laser emitting in the atmospheric transmission region in the mid-IR. The proposed optically pumped fiber-gas laser system is efficient, has a small footprint as well has a broad spectral coverage in the mid-IR. Due to the unique approach employed, the proposed technology allows generation of mid-IR output with varying pulse re ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 3D imaging for tracking and aim-point maintenance in the presence of target-pose changes

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT005

    We propose a three-dimensional imaging approach based on digital holography. Our approach is based on frequency diversity using a single chirped pulse instead of a train of pulses with different frequencies. Our approach promises to mitigate most of the issues limiting the performance of current methods and offer additional enabling capabilities that will improve target identification and tracking ...

  9. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT006

    Tau Technologies is teaming with Dr. David Voelz and his research group at New Mexico State University (NMSU) to propose “Vibration Imaging for the characterization of extended non-cooperative targets�, which employs dual-pulses in two different variations for vibration imaging in order to characterize non-cooperative targets at extended standoffs. One method is based on double-pulse ...

  10. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...
