The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Sub-aperture based EO imaging systems

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP            Topic: AF08T021

    MZA proposes design, integration, testing, and simulation of electro-optical (EO) imaging and computer processing hardware for operating a phased array consisting of 7-12 subapertures. Our implementation of image processing on a graphics processor units (GPUs) for subaperture piston control will be upgraded and computer hardware will be built in Phase II to operate at control rates exceeding 1 kH ...

  2. High Temperature Metal RubberTM Sensors For Skin Friction Measurements

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC.            Topic: AF09BT32

    The Air Force Phase I STTR program would develop and demonstrate high temperature version of ‘sensor skins’ capable of multi-axis flow characterization on air breathing hypersonic engines. This would build upon NanoSonic’s successful demonstration of Metal Rubber™ transducer materials for the measurement of flow-induced skin friction and pressure at low temperatures and transonic and super ...

  3. Fast Updatable Large-area Holographic Display

    SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF08T001

    Two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic storage is promising for updatable 3D display applications. In Phase I, New Span Opto-Technology has demonstrated novel concepts of both holographic recording technique and recording material system without the use of high voltage. We have ...

  4. Gigawatt Nonlinear Transmission Lines (GW-NLTL)

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: AF09BT14

    Nonlinear transmission lines offer new vistas in the generation of high power microwave wave (HPM) signals. All electromagnetic sources use an active medium to convert electrical energy to high frequency waves and ultra-wide band signals that can perform useful work. Traditional methods rely on electron beams for the active medium. Nonlinear transmission lines use nonlinear circuit elements to ...

  5. Efficient Propagators and Gravity Models in non-Cartesian Coordinate Systems

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT02

    Accurate and timely surveillance of objects in the near-Earth space environment is becoming increasingly critical to US national security. One of the main difficulties in this domain is efficiently and accurately modeling trajectories of the vast number of objects in orbit around the Earth. The orbital trajectory of a single object is typically modeled as a second-order system of equations which ...

  6. Realistic State and Measurement Error Uncertainty Computation and Propagation for Space Surveillance and Reconnaissance

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT11

    Space surveillance is the component of space situational awareness focused on the detection of resident space objects (RSOs) and the use of multisource data to track and identify space objects. While the propagation of the states of RSOs has been investigated extensively over the last fifty years, the correct propagation of their covariance or the more general (non-Gaussian) probability distribut ...

  7. Space-Time Signal Processing for Detecting and Classifying Distributed Attacks in Networks

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT09

    A mathematical framework for detection and classification of weak, distributed patterns on computer networks is proposed. The framework will provide rigorous methods for understanding performance bounds and optimality of intrusion detection methods, while also providing concrete and implementable algorithms. The algorithms will find immediate application in cyber-security efforts, as well as mor ...

  8. Speckle image processing for conformal sub-aperture arrays

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: AF08T021

    Future Air Force platforms require electro-optic long range imaging systems conformal to the surface of the aircraft to minimize drag and maximize stealth. The long imaging range often means having to compensate for atmospheric turbulence as well as the boundary layer around the aircraft. During the first phase of this STTR project, Optical Physics Company (OPC) demonstrated the feasibility o ...

  9. Aerosol Jet Printing of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube Transistors on Plastic Substrate

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: AF09BT26

    Aerosol Jet printing is proposed as a method for printing large area, CNT-based transistor arrays on flexible substrate. The teaming relationship combines expertise in high resolution printing along with device and materials expertise. All semiconductor, dielectric, and conductive materials comprising the TFTs will be solution processed and printed with a single machine. This will lead to a cos ...

  10. Improving Software and Data Security in Industrial Control Systems

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD09T003

    Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are critical elements in electrical, water, oil/gas, and manufacturing services involving supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), distributed control systems (DCS), and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). These systems allow operators to monitor sensor data and remotely control field devices. Initially, these devices were designed for closed-network or ...
