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. Solid-State Fundamental Mode Green Laser for Ocean Mine Detection

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N13AT023

    Arete proposes the development of Q-switched semiconductor lasers that can be scaled to produce high output peak powers within the blue/green wavelength band. The proposed system will utilize nanostructure quantum wavefunction engineering for gain material designs having extended excited state lifetimes and suppressed non-radiative processes to enable energy storage for high-peak-power optical pul ...

  2. Solid-State Fundamental Mode Green Laser for Ocean Mine Detection

    SBC: Lumany            Topic: N13AT023

    To address the Navy"s need for a solid state fundamental mode green laser for ocean mine detection, Lumany is proposing a compact, high efficiency, diode pumped solid state, q-switched laser based on novel laser diode pumps and a unique solid state crystal with excellent energy storage properties for high peak power, short pulsed green lasing output at 520nm from the fundamental mode. This propose ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Subaperture Adaptive Optics for directed energy phased arrays

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: The proposed research will develop a method of compensating atmospheric disturbances in the transmitting subapertures of a phased array transceiver operating in the infrared. The aero-optical boundary layer and atmospheric turbulence create phase variations within each subaperture. To compensate these variations, an adaptive optical system will be used in each subaperture. The propos ...

  9. Surface plasmon enhanced thin-film photovoltaic systems

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT39

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of surface plasmon enhanced photovoltaic devices that exhibit increased current collection. Photon management, the manipulation of the incident optical field to increase the probability that a photon is absorbed in the active region of the cell, is critical to the development of next generation thin film sol ...

  10. Surface plasmon enhanced tunneling diode detection of THz radiation

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT33

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of uncooled THz detectors for the 1-10THz band with a novel design using surface plasmon resonant cavities with integrated metal-insulator-metal tunneling diodes as the detecting element. Tunneling diodes provide ultrafast broadband response, potentially into the visible (300THz), but demonstrated performanc ...
