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. Directed Energy Wind Tunnel Test Methodology

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT:MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes advancement of aero-optical isolation hardware, data processing, and optical modeling for upgrade of AEDCs 16T wind tunnel. We will conduct testing at AEDC during Year 1 with mechanical diagnostics and an upgraded optical sensor with small-aperture access to the test section from outside the 16T pressure vessel. We will also design ...

  2. Naval Platform Aero-Optic Turbulence and Mitigation Methodology

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: N13AT001

    MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to transition the Navys HEFL Beam Director Subsystem (HBDS) for flight testing on the Airborne Aero-Optics Laboratory Transonic (AAOL-T) aircraft. We will reconfigure the HBDS integrating structure and aft beam control system to fit the cabin constraints of the AAOL-T aircraft with an aft beam control and scoring bench. Operational functiona ...

  4. High Fidelity Algorithm to Model the Statistical Variations of Ground Target Signatures in Scene Generator Systems

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF161102

    ABSTRACT: Scene generators are commonly used to create synthetic images of ground targets, such as tanks and battlefield wheeled vehicles, to facilitate seeker algorithm development.These scene generators can produce realistic output for sensor types such as infrared or radar, but are limited by the quality of the target models.Typically, the target models show little or no variation so that the s ...

  6. Non-linear Adaptive Optics

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: SB171012

    Propagation of high-energy short-pulse laser light through the atmosphere must contend with not only the phase aberrations induced by atmospheric turbulence, but also a cadre of nonlinear phenomena that can reduce the efficacy of light delivery to a target. During this effort, we are investigating several adaptive optics designs that should improve the compensation of distributed aberrations in th ...

  7. High Bandwidth Fast Steering Mirror

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: N172114

    Air flowing over the fuselage of aircraft can induce both mechanical vibrations in the platform. Furthermore, the turbulent air flow induced by the aircraft can cause light propagating through it to become aberrated due to the aero-optical disturbances. These aero-optical and aero-mechanical disturbances have a strong effect on the pointing of the light propagated through them. The speed of these ...

  8. Unified sensor for atmospheric turbulence and refractivity characterization

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT008

    MZA partnered with the Michigan Technological University (MTU) proposes to develop an atmospheric characterization sensor which unifies the measurement of atmospheric turbulence and refractivity through target-in-the-loop measurements, requiring no augmentation of the target or equipment on the other end of the path. We image multi-wavelength target illumination and remove atmospheric blurring us ...

  9. Progressively Expanded Neural Network (PENnet) Tracker

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT027

    We propose to develop a multi-layer tracking framework that integrates feature-based, motion-based, and deep-learning-based tracking. Our proposal consist of two development tasks and two research exploration efforts. Our team proposes to develop the Progressively Expanded Neural Network (PENnet) Tracker, a deep learning based tracker capable of on-the-go training of the target. The PENnet Trac ...

  10. Realtime Multiframe Blind Deconvolution (MFBD) for Imaging through Turbulence

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF171025

    Space situational awareness is vital to space superiority because it enables all other space operations. It requires robust space surveillance, real-time search and targeting-quality information, and many other functions. However, dynamic blurring from
