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 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 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. Adaptive Digital Receiver

    SBC: V CORP. TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF093134

    This SBIR Phase II project will demonstrate a highly innovative, high-performance Adaptive Digital Receiver architecture with adaptive background control that optimizes the performance in rapidly changing signal environments and provides 2 GHz instantaneous bandwidth, SFDR>90 dB, SNR = 66 dB, with dynamic digital channelization. The efficacy of this technology was proven in the highly successful ...

  2. Sense and Avoid Ladar for Remotely Piloted Aircraft


    Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) across the services need the capability to operate in civil airspace. Currently, the lack of Sense and Avoid (SAA) technology is the largest obstacle to this capability. The SAA problem is all the more challenging when dealing with non-cooperative traffic. It is increasingly becoming clear that a suite of sensors is needed to provide a total solution. Electro-opti ...

  3. Laser Technologies Adapted for UAS Sense and Avoid (SAA) Applications

    SBC: Defense Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF093136

    ABSTRACT: Without the capability to sense and avoid other air traffic, UAS flights are limited to flight operations within restricted and warning areas unless the proponent obtains a Certificate of Authorization (COA) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). FAA Order 7610.4 states that remotely operated aircraft must have an equivalent level of safety, comparable to see-and-avoid require ...

  4. Multi-Function Laser Radar (LADAR) for Rotorcraft Brownout and Cable Warning/Obstacle Avoidance

    SBC: H. N. BURNS ENGINEERING CORP.            Topic: AF093C137

    ABSTRACT: This proposed SBIR Phase II effort is to design, fabricate and field-test a prototype Multifunction Laser Radar System which will be integrated on a US Army Aeroflightdynamics Directorate (AFDD) EH-60L Blackhawk helicopter and flight tested in complete zero-visibility brownout conditions at Yuma Proving Ground (YPG). The primary objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to provide c ...

  5. Improvements in Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Detection Through Multi-band Imaging

    SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION            Topic: AF093138

    Dual-Band airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imaging provides all-weather, day and night ISR capability with the ability to image through foliage. The proposed system is a UHF / X-Band system which uses a modified Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) radar built by Artemis, with an innovative antenna design by FIRST RF. The radar system itself has been specifically tuned for use aboard smaller U ...

  6. Inertial Reference Corrective Approaches to Complementary Antenna Pedestal Gyro Units

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF093140

    Attitude control of antenna pedestal platforms traditionally require costly inertial navigation systems to provide signal referencing to the pedestal"s rate gyros. This is primarily due to the rate drift that is inherent across all gyro technologies. Fiber Optic Gyros offer excellent drift and sensitivity performance, with up to 1000 times better bias stability than the best MEMs gyros, and have ...

  7. ADS-B Signal Transmission Authenticity Reckoner (ASTAR)

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF093141

    ADS-B reports can be maliciously spoofed to deny airspace to other aircraft including those on DoD missions. Under the Phase I effort, we developed a novel approach that exploits the physical characteristics of the ADS-B transmission signal to determine its validity. We leveraged our proven transmitter localization algorithms along with multi-target tracking filters to develop an ADS-B message au ...

  8. Cross-Platform SAR Image Quality Metric for ATR

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF093143

    The intelligence community uses the National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS) to quantify the information that an image analyst can extract from a visible image. NIIRS ratings relate the visual quality of an image to the interpretation tasks for which it may be used. A General Image Quality Equation (GIQE) has been used to predict NIIRS ratings for EO/IR images from image quality para ...

  9. Performance estimation of SAR imagery using NIIRS techniques

    SBC: ETEGENT TECHNOLOGIES, LTD.            Topic: AF093143

    Using an information theoretic Global Image Quality Equation(GIQE), we map image formation parameters to National Image Interpretability Rating Scale(NIIRS) levels. These NIIRS levels are also projected onto PID derived from analysts and signature exploitation algorithms for various target sets. Imagery is generated randomly using a combination of truthed clutter background with measured and synth ...

  10. Enhanced Ultrahigh Frequency SAR Imaging via Geometric Exploitation


    Geometric or angular diversity can be exploited to significantly enhance ultrahigh frequency (UHF) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging performance, to capture target glints, to exploit highly directional specular returns, to achieve enhanced resolutions in both planar dimensions without increasing the radio frequency (RF) bandwidth, and to form three-dimensional (3-D) images using a large apert ...
