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.

  4. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Large ground-based telescopes require adaptive optics (AO) to correct for distortions introduced by atmospheric turbulence. In order to function, the AO system must track a bright point source. Although a natural star may be used, full sky coverage requires an artificial beacon created with a laser. The most common type of laser guide star (LGS) employs the mesospheric layer of sodium atoms at an ...

  7. 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 ...
