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. Directionally-Tailored Infrared Emission and/or Transmission

    SBC: Sensormetrix INC            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: It is proposed to demonstrate a surface fabricated using thin film metamaterial designs that can exhibit rapidly varying angular as well as spectral emissivity profiles. The technology enables specification of desired angular pattern at design time, and can be fabricated in large area formats. BENEFIT: The proposed technology will allow directional control of thermal radiation in app ...

  2. Sub-aperture based EO imaging systems

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            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 ...

  3. Three-Dimensional Measurement of Fluid Density Distribution

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF16AT06

    We propose to develop a 3D tomographic background-orientated Schlieren measurement technique, including hardware setup and post-processing software to produce 3D visualization of compressible flow features in subsonic, transonic, and supersonic wind tunn...

  4. Semi-Analytic Fresnel Propagation Simulation

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF18BT004

    Wave-optics simulations are critical tools for analysis of laser directed energy systems. The primary method for conducting these simulations is to evaluate the Fresnel diffraction integral using the angular spectrum method based on the fast Fourier transform (FFT). While FFTs are considered computationally efficient, their use in the Fresnel integral results in difficult grid constraints includin ...

  5. 3-D Tracking and Aimpoint Maintenance (3-D TrAM)

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF19AT005

    Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system. Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target. In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction. Further, atmospheric turbulence scintillate ...

  6. Unified sensor for atmospheric turbulence and refractivity characterization

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT008

    MZA partnered with the Michigan Technological University (MTU) proposes development and testing of key components for our unified Atmospheric Refractivity and Turbulence Sensor (ARTS.) Software upgrades will be made to MZA’s DELTA-Sky sensor to enable atmospheric refraction measurements in addition to existing turbulence profiling. The illuminator assembly to implement the ARTS probe laser ...

  7. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface Em ...

  8. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: AHMIC AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    Scramjet engines are designed to operate across a wide Mach number range and typically incorporate isolator sections to provide sufficient back-pressure margin and prevent unstart. As military requirements become increasingly demanding, an active, closed-loop control system is necessary to maintain engine stability and power output. During Phase I, key components of a scramjet control system were ...

  9. Fast Response Heat Flux Sensors and Efficient Data Reduction Methodology for Hypersonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: AHMIC AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: AF17AT001

    Accurate knowledge of heat flux is critical in assessing the design, performance, and survivability of hypersonic flight vehicles. Despite decades of research and testing, much is still unknown regarding hypersonic instabilities and transition mechanisms that define the state of the boundary layer. While the existence of these features is known, the ability to accurately measure them remains a cha ...

  10. Massively Parallel Micromachining with Ultrafast Lasers

    SBC: KAPTEYN-MURNANE LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: AF08T029

    We are proposing to develop a highly parallel, rapid prototyping system for the manufacture of microfluidic devices. In this phase II proposal we will build a complete system for making such devices for continued research on fieldable microfluidic systems for use in the military, and in hospitals. The project will also allow manufacturing in widely different materials, and structures, without an ...
