The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.
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.
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP 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...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF18BT004
Wave-optics simulations are critical tools for analysis of laser directed energy systems. The primary method for conducting these simulations is to evaluate the Fresnel diffraction integral using the angular spectrum method based on the fast Fourier transform (FFT). While FFTs are considered computationally efficient, their use in the Fresnel integral results in difficult grid constraints includin ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF19AT005
Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system. Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target. In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction. Further, atmospheric turbulence scintillate ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP 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 MZAâ€™s DELTA-Sky sensor to enable atmospheric refraction measurements in addition to existing turbulence profiling. The illuminator assembly to implement the ARTS probe laser ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
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 ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF08BT02
Nanoscale infrared detectors are emerging as a potentially powerful alternative to traditional infrared detector technologies. The University of New Mexico has developed dots in a double well (DDWELL) quantum dot infrared photodetectors which have a spectral responsivity that can be tuned by controlling the bias voltage applied. In this Phase II effort, Polaris Sensor and UNM would fabricate a g ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF18AT007
The Phase II effort will be to clearly demonstrate the feasibility and build a prototype of a noncontact, high-quality holographic polarimetry system with pixel level depth and Mueller matrix information with a user-friendly interface to image and display this data. The measurements of each data product will be validated with trusted truth samples. The system will be reproducible and will have a d ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NESS ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: AF09BT14
Recent advances in dielectric and magnetic materials have spurred renewed interest in the field of solid state pulse and RF burst generation using Non-Linear Transmission Lines (NLTL) . The NLTL approach to HPM and UWB generation eliminates the need for an electron beam, vacuum system and magnets required in conventional HPM sources. Furthermore, the novel waveforms of NLTL generated pulses promi ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: AF16AT16
Future gas turbine propulsion designs, in addition to incorporating variable geometrical engine features, will require controlling and integrating large power generation/extraction, as well as, managing thermal limits of the components. The engine contro...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
Intelligent and Multiplexable Ultra-High-Temperature Fiber-Optic Pressure Sensors for Robust Distributed Engine ControlSBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: AF16AT18
Next-generation intelligent engines will operate at higher temperatures for increased efficiency and will migrate from centralized to distributed control. There is critical need for sensors for operation at ultra-high temperatures (3000F). Conven...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
