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.

  1. Supercontinuum Fiber Laser for Multi-Spectral Energy Propagation

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: AF09BT01

    Based on our success in developing the world first commercial high power femtosecond fiber laser system and our leading technology development in ultrashort pulsed fiber laser and nonlinear fiber optics, PolarOnyx proposes, for the first time, a compact all fiber based high power (>kW) mid-IR supercontinuum source (1-5 micron) to meet with the requirement of the AF solicitation AF09-BT01. The lase ...

  3. Coherent Beam Combining of Mid-IR Lasers

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A10AT007

    Military applications, such as IRCM (Infrared Countermeasures) and stand-off sensing, require highly efficient optical sources with power outputs for room temperature continuous wave operation of several to a hundred watts in the 3-5 micron and 8-12 micron spectral bands. While quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) have become the sources of choice in these spectral regions, the only realistic option to ...

  4. Eye-safe Optically-Pumped Gas-filled Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: ARMY08T021

    An eye-safe optically pumped laser based on a gas-filled hollow optical fiber will be demonstrated to lase at both near infrared (IR) and mid IR wavelengths. These lasers will be the first in a new class of IR lasers, based on the combination of hollow-f

  5. Nano-Optical Elements for Multi-Mode Detectors

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: AF09BT37

    Prime Research and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte propose to devevelop space-variant nano-optical elements to integrate passive spectral and polarization filters directly into infrared focal plane arrays. This novel technology will enable multi-mode detection by allowing pixels to be uniquely tuned for wavelength and polarization across a focal plane array using a simple fabricatio ...

  6. Novel Methods for Sensor Quieting in Turbulent Flows

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: ST092004

    The Progeny – University of Utah team proposes a new approach for flow noise reduction to improve acoustic sensor performance. Our proposal is to investigate the ability of controlling the turbulent flow by utilizing acceleration which makes the flow locally laminar. Our proposed method of achieving acceleration is to send the flow around a concave surface, by adding a “two-dimensional bump ...

  7. External Pipe Sound Pressure Level Sensor

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N10AT016

    Stealth is a primary consideration in design and operation of ships and submarines in the Navy fleet. Noise in hydraulic systems and piping is one source of unwanted noise. A method to measure and monitor this noise is essential to controlling and eliminating these noise sources. With the assistance of UMASS Dartmouth we will present a method to externally measure the fluidborne sound pressure lev ...

  9. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: Raydiance, Inc.            Topic: N10AT012

    Compelling applications of infrared ultrafast lasers—ranging from ship self defense and aircraft self defense, to medical and micromachining applications—have defined a critical performance point at about one millijoule per pulse from a reliable and robust portable laser system with high average power. Increasing amplifier efficiency is a critical need in order to reach high average powers nee ...

  10. Advanced Compressor Technology for Ultrafast Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Raydiance, Inc.            Topic: NAVY07T009

    Ultrafast laser technology offers compelling capabilities for national defense, state-of-the-art health care, and the materials processing industry. The development of this technology into commercial form factor hardware has been limited mostly by the size, cost, complexity, and/or pulse energy limitations of current ultrafast laser systems. Optical fiber based ultrafast lasers have dramatically d ...
