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. RAPID RECONSTITUTION FOR GROUND-BASED OPTICAL SSA CAPABILITY FOR GEO, HEO AND MEO

    SBC: J.T. MCGRAW AND ASSOCIATES, LLC            Topic: AF16AT05

    Commercially-derived telescope systems, consisting mostly of commercially available components assembled to optimally meet space surveillance goals, stand ready to temporarily replace, supplement and/or augment existing optical surveillance systems. In t...

  2. Realistic State and Measurement Error Uncertainty Computation and Propagation for Space Surveillance and Reconnaissance

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT11

    Space surveillance is the component of space situational awareness focused on the detection of resident space objects (RSOs) and the use of multisource data to track and identify space objects. While the propagation of the states of RSOs has been investigated extensively over the last fifty years, the correct propagation of their covariance or the more general (non-Gaussian) probability distribut ...

  3. Reconfigurable / cognitive optical communications

    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 ...

  4. Regional Radio Frequency Attenuation and Interference Monitor (RF-AIM)

    SBC: Silvus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT005

    Silvus Technologies and the University of California Los Angeles propose a system design and a rapid development path for the Regional Radio Frequency Attenuation and Interference Monitor, or ‘RF-AIM’. RF-AIM is intended to provide continuous wide area awareness of RF spectrum availability in the presence of arbitrary interference and attenuation from natural or man-made causes. The t ...

  5. Resilient Directional Mesh Enhanced Tactical Airborne Networks

    SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION            Topic: AF17BT003

    FIRST RF will lead the Phase II effort and will leverage the system architecture of the MAINLINE system and integrate multifunctional SiGe integrated circuits (ICs) developed by The University of California San Diego under the supervision of Prof. Gabriel Rebeiz. The SiGe devices developed during the Phase II effort will significantly reduce the power requirements of the MAINLINE system allowing f ...

  6. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  7. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: IN-DEPTH ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT17

    Speech data corrupted by reverberation, especially in combination with noise, has a drastically negative effect on the performance of speaker identification algorithms. Current approaches to the removal of reverb and noise rely on specific knowledge of room characteristics causing the reverb.The team of In-Depth Engineering and the University of Maryland propose to apply an innovative, generalized ...

  8. Robust Mid-IR Optical Fibers for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Lambda Photonics, LLC            Topic: AF15AT02

    ABSTRACT: Infrared sources and sensors are becoming increasingly useful for military and commercial applications. We propose to exploit recent advances in multimaterial fiber technology to produce a new class of optical infrared fibers that are robust and low in cost for high-power, high-stress environments. The use of beam confining fiber optics reduces or eliminates issues with misalignment or d ...

  9. Robust Mid-IR Optical Fibers for Extreme Environments

    SBC: IRFLEX CORP            Topic: AF15AT02

    ABSTRACT: Chalcogenide glass fibers are commercially available and are used for delivery of mid-infrared wavelengths (1.5um to 6.5um).These fibers allow compact, robust and low-weight laser platforms designs.Laser systems in high-power and high-stress environments find their reliability and performance limited due to free-space optical components.Free-space components suffer from vibration and the ...

  10. Robust Model for Behavior of Complex Materials during Spin Testing

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: AF08T013

    The objective of this project is to develop a practical finite element-based simulation of spin-pit tests of disks. The performance of disks in spin-pit tests critically depends on localized effects, such as residual stresses, dislocations, and microstructure gradients. Therefore, a two-scale modeling approach is adopted. At the global-scale, the disk is represented by means of finite elements wit ...
