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. Multiphysics Modeling of Dynamic Combustion Processes Using Pareto-Efficient Combustion Framework

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: AF18BT010

    The objective is to develop zonal multi-physics capability for turbulent combustion simulations. The foundation of the proposed work is a novel Pareto-Efficient Combustion (PEC) framework for fidelity-adaptive combustion modeling. The PEC model utilizes a combustion submodel assignment, combining the low-cost flamelet-based models with the more expensive finite rate chemistry models where necessar ...

  2. Directionally-Tailored Infrared Emission and/or Transmission

    SBC: Sensormetrix INC            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: It is proposed to demonstrate a surface fabricated using thin film metamaterial designs that can exhibit rapidly varying angular as well as spectral emissivity profiles. The technology enables specification of desired angular pattern at design time, and can be fabricated in large area formats. BENEFIT: The proposed technology will allow directional control of thermal radiation in app ...

  3. Sub-aperture based EO imaging systems

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T021

    MZA proposes design, integration, testing, and simulation of electro-optical (EO) imaging and computer processing hardware for operating a phased array consisting of 7-12 subapertures. Our implementation of image processing on a graphics processor units (GPUs) for subaperture piston control will be upgraded and computer hardware will be built in Phase II to operate at control rates exceeding 1 kH ...

  4. Semi-Analytic Fresnel Propagation Simulation

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            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 ...

  5. 3-D Tracking and Aimpoint Maintenance (3-D TrAM)

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            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 ...

  6. Unified sensor for atmospheric turbulence and refractivity characterization

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            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 MZA’s DELTA-Sky sensor to enable atmospheric refraction measurements in addition to existing turbulence profiling. The illuminator assembly to implement the ARTS probe laser ...

  7. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface Em ...

  8. Massively Parallel Micromachining with Ultrafast Lasers

    SBC: KAPTEYN-MURNANE LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: AF08T029

    We are proposing to develop a highly parallel, rapid prototyping system for the manufacture of microfluidic devices. In this phase II proposal we will build a complete system for making such devices for continued research on fieldable microfluidic systems for use in the military, and in hospitals. The project will also allow manufacturing in widely different materials, and structures, without an ...
