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. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: IN-DEPTH ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT17

    Speech data corrupted by reverberation, especially in combination with noise, has a drastically negative effect on the performance of speaker identification algorithms. Current approaches to the removal of reverb and noise rely on specific knowledge of room characteristics causing the reverb.The team of In-Depth Engineering and the University of Maryland propose to apply an innovative, generalized ...

  2. Robust Ionic Liquid Electrolytes for Reversible Electroplating of Mirrors

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT20

    This proposal addresses the need for development of room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) for use in electrolytes for reversibly electroplating films with specific optical, emissive and electrical properties on demand. Target applications for these elec...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Robust Mid-IR Optical Fibers for Extreme Environments

    SBC: IRFLEX CORP            Topic: AF15AT02

    ABSTRACT: Chalcogenide glass fibers are commercially available and are used for delivery of mid-infrared wavelengths (1.5um to 6.5um).These fibers allow compact, robust and low-weight laser platforms designs.Laser systems in high-power and high-stress environments find their reliability and performance limited due to free-space optical components.Free-space components suffer from vibration and the ...

  5. Robust Model for Behavior of Complex Materials during Spin Testing

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: AF08T013

    The objective of this project is to develop a practical finite element-based simulation of spin-pit tests of disks. The performance of disks in spin-pit tests critically depends on localized effects, such as residual stresses, dislocations, and microstructure gradients. Therefore, a two-scale modeling approach is adopted. At the global-scale, the disk is represented by means of finite elements wit ...

  6. ROBUST MOVING TARGET HANDOFF IN GPS-DENIED ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT34

    Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are increasingly seen as a cornerstone in developing the future Defense infrastructure and it is critical that they collaborate efficiently and execute complex missions in denied environments. Although great progress has been made in GPS-denied navigation, the target handoff problem in GPS-denied environments has not been extensively studied. In this problem, a trac ...

  7. Room Temperature Quantum Memory

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Quantum computer technology is so critical and strategic that the Air Force Research Laboratory is itself working on a quantum bit focused on the trapped ytterbium (Yb+) ion. The current technology based on entangling electrons, photons, or ions are challenging to put together in multiple qubits. To make a qubit stable, it is essential to protect it from outside interferences that can disrupt the ...

  9. Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) for Directed Energy Phased Arrays

    SBC: MV INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for an adaptive optics system using a fiber laser array as the spatial phase correction system within the subaperature of an array of discrete telescopes, Optonicus and The University of Dayton propose the development of a new Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) system. The integration of new fiber-array architectures with novel imaging and ada ...

  10. Scalable technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride

    SBC: Soraa            Topic: AF08BT20

    We propose to demonstrate and advance several key aspects of our novel, scalable ammonothermal technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride. Specifically, we propose to demonstrate a high growth rate and high crystalline quality, to design and analyze a pilot-scale reactor, and to construct and validate a quantitative model to describe the fluid dynamics of the growth envi ...
