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. Non-Linear Adaptive Optics (NLAO)

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop an approach for non-linear control of hysteresis and incorporate (if necessary) integrated Multi-Input-Multi-Output real time control with this capability.Our control systems already include a proven high speed real time control approach to determine the optimal set of actuator commands that satisfy inter-actuator stroke limitations.O ...

  2. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Adaptive optics (AO) system performance is hindered by the mechanical limits of the deformable mirror (DM), namely stroke limits, interactuator stroke limits, and mechanical resonance.The nature of the multi-in multi-out (MIMO) control system does not lend itself well to notch filters to combat the mechanical resonances, and the stroke limits introduce non-linearities to the system.The traditional ...

  4. Carbon NanotubeCopper Composite as Electron Emitter for Passive Spacecraft Discharging

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF18AT011

    This SBIR project will develop and demonstrate efficient electron emitter based on carbon nanotubecopper (CNT-Cu) composite for passive discharging of spacecraft in plasma environment. A spacecraft moving through harsh plasma environment collects electrons, which leads to the spacecraft charging up to several kilovolts. High voltage between different parts of the spacecraft can ignite arcing, whic ...

  6. Application of Hierarchical Memory Models to Automatic Target Recognition Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: NOVATEUR RESEARCH SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF18AT014

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes a visual processing system for automated target recognition. Inspired by biological vision systems and hierarchical memory models, the proposed system is capable of learning hierarchical invariant features from unlabeled data that are independent of object labels. The model exploits these learned features to create hierarchical representations of target memories ...
