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. ULTRAFAST DIAGNOSTICS FOR NOVEL ENERGETIC MATERIALS IN ROCKET ENGINE ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF08T010

    The objectives of this Phase-II research effort is focused on transitioning noninvasive diagnostic techniques based on ultrafast lasers for characterizing nanoenergetic materials and their performance in rocket engine environments. Through the use of ultrafast laser imaging and spectroscopy, it is possible to isolate and characterize each physical process from initiation through energy release an ...

  2. Ultradense Plasmonic Integrated Devices and Circuits

    SBC: ULTIMARA INC            Topic: AF08BT18

    We propose to develop ultradense plasmonic integrated devices and circuits for optical interconnect compatible with the electronic circuitry. In our proposal, we will employ engineered metallic nanostructures that combine energy concentration by plasmonic lenses and retardation-based plasmonic resonances to even further boost the efficiency of materials exhibiting optical nonlinearity. These plas ...

  4. UAV Guidance on GPUs by Nominal Belief-State Optimization

    SBC: Apolent Corporation            Topic: AF09BT06

    We apply the theory of partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs) to the design of guidance algorithms for controlling the motion of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with on-board sensors for tracking multiple ground targets. While POMDPs are intractable to optimize exactly, principled approximation methods can be devised based on Bellman’s principle. We introduce a new approximation ...

  5. Two-color Infrared Laser Arrays for Scene Projection

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A17AT018

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (> 1Kx1K), response time < 1 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas. MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range. Resistor arrays suffer from low frame ...

  6. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...

  7. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: APPLIED OPTIMIZATION, INC.            Topic: AF19AT017

    The research objective is to develop a tunable spatially-varying photonic crystal (SVPC) to achieve the optical propagation properties (reflection and transmission) of the light through the designed structure for the visible and near IR-bands. The light from this SVPC will be able to focus and bend as a function of the spatial variation of the refractive index, input angle, and state of polarizati ...

  10. Toolset For Prediction of Carbon-Carbon Aeroshell Properties Based On Constituent Materials And Manufacturing Process Parameters

    SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF19AT021

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are used in the fabrication of aeroshells and thermal protection systems (TPS) in hypersonic and atmospheric reentry applications because they maintain their strength at elevated temperatures and have desirable thermal conductivity properties. Although these materials have been used in mission-critical components for decades, the effects of variations in processing m ...
