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. Diffusion Geometry Based Nonlinear Methods for Hyperspectral Change Detection

    SBC: Plain Sight Systems Inc            Topic: AF08BT24

    We propose a suite of nonlinear image processing algorithms derived from the analysis of the underlying diffusion geometry of a collection of hyperspectral images of interest. These tools enable the comparison of spatio-spectral features of hyperspectral images acquired under different conditions, for the purposes of target detection, change detection and anomaly assessment. This methodology also ...

  2. Surface plasmon enhanced tunneling diode detection of THz radiation

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT33

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of uncooled THz detectors for the 1-10THz band with a novel design using surface plasmon resonant cavities with integrated metal-insulator-metal tunneling diodes as the detecting element. Tunneling diodes provide ultrafast broadband response, potentially into the visible (300THz), but demonstrated performanc ...

  3. Surface plasmon enhanced thin-film photovoltaic systems

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT39

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of surface plasmon enhanced photovoltaic devices that exhibit increased current collection. Photon management, the manipulation of the incident optical field to increase the probability that a photon is absorbed in the active region of the cell, is critical to the development of next generation thin film sol ...

  4. VLSI Compatible Silicon-on-Insulator Plasmonic Components

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08BT18

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop ultradense, low-power plasmonic integration components and devices for on-chip manipulation and processing of optical signals. Both passive and active components will be studied. Detailed performance predictions will be obtained through finite element modeling (FEM) of the harmonic Maxwell’s equations. The FEM provides detai ...

  5. Plasmonic Cavity Spectroscopic Polarimeter

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T027

    This Small Business Technology Transfer program will develop a spectroscopic polarimeter-on-a-chip using novel plasmonic resonant cavities sensitive to linear polarization over a narrow wavelength range. Spectral selection will be possible through geometric scaling, with this work concentrating on the visible to near infrared wavelength band. Dielectric gratings with subwavelength period will act ...

  6. Innovative Combat Simulation to Craft Tomorrow’s UAV Operational Doctrine

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF09BT31

    This proposal is for the use of state-of-the-art computer wargames to be used in the research on the impact and optimal use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in realistic combat scenarios. High fidelity, historically calibrated wargames ranging from sub-tactical ground-centric game engines through operational, strategic, air campaign, and naval-centric game engines will be used to address the fu ...

  7. Efficient High-Power Tunable Terahertz Sources using Optical Techniques

    SBC: Microtech Instruments, Inc.            Topic: AF08T009

    The main objective of the proposed Phase II project is to leverage the technology of THz generation in resonantly-pumped quasi-phase-matched (QPM) GaAs structures, jointly developed by Stanford University and Microtech Instruments, Inc., and create a compact and power-efficient commercial THz source with a mW-level average power. This source will be continuously or step-tunable in the 0.5-3 THz ra ...

  8. Enriched Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes for High Frequency Large Area Flexible Transistor Arrays

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF09BT26

    A great deal of research has been done on thin film Carbon Nanotube Transistors. Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNTs) have exceptional electrical properties, High speed circuits require high carrier mobility, and individual SWNTs have a carrier mobility of up to 120,000 cm2/Vs and can be doped n and p-type. Enriched semiconducting SWNTs (s-SWNTs), narrowed down to individual chiralities provid ...

  9. Fast Updatable Large-area Holographic Display

    SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF08T001

    Two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic storage is promising for updatable 3D display applications. In Phase I, New Span Opto-Technology has demonstrated novel concepts of both holographic recording technique and recording material system without the use of high voltage. We have ...

  10. Efficient Propagators and Gravity Models in non-Cartesian Coordinate Systems

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT02

    Accurate and timely surveillance of objects in the near-Earth space environment is becoming increasingly critical to US national security. One of the main difficulties in this domain is efficiently and accurately modeling trajectories of the vast number of objects in orbit around the Earth. The orbital trajectory of a single object is typically modeled as a second-order system of equations which ...
