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. Narrowband Perfect Absorber for Infrared Sensing

    SBC: SRICO INC            Topic: A12aT023

    SRICO proposes to combine metamaterial narrowband absorbers and SRICO-proprietary thin film pyroelectric thermal detectors to produce ultra low size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) room temperature stand-off chemical sensors. Metamaterial narrowband absorber elements are integrated into the thin film pyroelectric detector process to provide conversion of radiation to heat, which is then sensed by ...

  2. Metasurface Enhanced Solar Blind Ultraviolet Photodetector

    SBC: PHOEBUS OPTOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: A13AT002

    This project will develop plasmonic films that perform the dual functions of optical filtering and electrical conduction for solar-blind ultraviolet radiation (UV) detectors. Two types of plasmonic structures will be investigated, namely nano-hole arrays in an aluminum film atop UV radiation detecting semiconductors. These two similar plasmonic structures support different types of surface plasm ...

  3. Naval Platform Aero-Optic Turbulence and Mitigation Methodology

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: N13AT001

    Clear Science Corp. and the University of Texas at Austin will develop and demonstrate technology that accurately quantifies aero-optical distortion associated with high-energy laser (HEL) weapons on rotorcraft and will utilize the information in designing adaptive optics (AO) systems to maximize HEL system performance over the full range of flight conditions. Aero-optical distortion arises from v ...

  4. Modeling of Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) Blends

    SBC: SIMMETRIX, INC.            Topic: N13AT002

    Integrally bladed rotors (IBR), also called blisks, are becoming increasingly common in the compressor and fan sections of modern turbine engines. The integration of the blades and disks into a single part has the advantages of reduced part count, reduced weight, increased reliability, and increased performance. However, a drawback of this technology is that individual blades cannot be easily repl ...

  5. Maneuver Prediction and Avoidance Logic For Unmanned Aircraft System Encounters with Non-Cooperative Air Traffic

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: N13AT003

    For Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to operate seamlessly in both the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) and abroad, it will be crucial that they possess a sense-and-avoid (SAA) capability that can ensure safe operations among maneuvering, non-cooperative aircraft. Numerica Corporation, in partnership with Johns Hopkins University, proposes to develop a set of algorithms to model the uncertaintie ...

  6. Surface-Emitting, Monolithic Beam-Combined Mid-Wave IR Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N13AT006

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: (1) design a grating-coupled surface-emitting (GCSE) active-photonic-crystal (APC) 4.6 micron-emitting quantum-cascade laser (QCL) to deliver 15 W diffraction-limited CW power in the main lobe of the far-field beam pattern; (2) design a GCSE-APC QCL structure with monolithic aperture-filling optical elements for obtaining close to 90 % of the surface- ...

  7. Interlaminar Mode I and Mode II Fracture Toughnesses in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: N13AT008

    Susceptibility to delamination is one of the major weaknesses of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). Knowledge of the resistance of composite to interlaminar fracture is essential for life cycle prediction analyses of structural components. The current test method for Mode I-interlaminar fracture toughness, the double cantilevered beam (DCB), is not satisfactory for thin CMC specimens because the co ...

  8. Extended-Range Atmospheric Sensing Suite (ERASS) for Deep Turbulence Characterization

    SBC: MV INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF11BT41

    ABSTRACT: During Phase 1 the technical feasibility of the Extended-Range Atmospheric Sensing Suite (ERASS) which includes a set of sensors at three different wavelengths (0.53, 1.06, and 1.55 microns), capable of operating in strong-scintillation conditions over long (>100 km) propagation paths and providing both near and far-field measurements of major atmospheric turbulence, laser beam and imag ...

  9. Innovative Polishing Technology for Fabrication of High Performance Epi-ready GaSb Substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA12T003

    Antimony containing III-V semiconducting compounds are particularly attractive for the fabrication of a wide variety of electronic and optoelectronic devices such as photo detectors operating in the long wave infrared wavelength (12-32µm) range. The production of epi quality GaSb wafers still remains one of the important problems for rapid commercialization of GaSb devices. In Phase I effort, we ...
