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. Adaptive Optics for Nonlinear Atmospheric Propagation of Laser Pulses

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N17AT024

    Ultra-short pulse lasers have advantages over continuous-wave lasers for directed-energy applications due to the high peak powers that can be reached. Directed-energy weapons are profoundly limited by the aberrations caused by atmospheric turbulence and current adaptive optics can correct for these aberrations only when the propagation medium is reciprocal. Unfortunately, nonlinear effects in the ...

  2. Improved High-Frequency Bottom Loss Characterization

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N17AT026

    We propose development of an improved bottom database suitable for use in the frequency range of 1-10 kHz. Measured transmission loss (TL) and reverberation level (RL) will be jointly processed in building the database. The influence of the rough sea surface, rough seafloor, as well as subbottom heterogeneity will be accounted for during database generation. The rough sea surface will be character ...

  3. Multi-Sensor Autonomous Hydrothemal Vent Detection System

    SBC: 10dBx LLC            Topic: N17AT028

    Development of a concept of operations is proposed for autonomous hydrothermal vent detection in a single sortie. The concept involves active sonars (forward looking and swath mapping sonars, plus possibly a 1-2 MHz acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) for measuring midwater turbulence) mounted on a commercial AUV equipped with environmental sensors (e.g., CTD, fluorometer, MAPR-ORP). The AUV ...

  4. Spatiotemporal Shaping for Parallel Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: N17AT030

    This Navy STTR Phase I proposal presents an parallel AM tool to eliminate conventional scanning strategy. A 2D MEMS array is used to shape both in time domain and spatial domain to obtain the desired pattern for layer by layer process. Modeling is used to study in-process melting evolution versus powder and beam properties. It provides quantitative characterization of the AM system to guide the de ...

  5. Risk-Based Unmanned Air System (UAS) Mission Path Planning Capability

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N17BT034

    In this Phase I Project ACTA and its partners will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a risk-based mission path planning (RB MPP) approach. Areas of interest to the Navy where a RB MPP address critical needs include enabling less restrictive UAS operations within the US National and Foreign Airspaces. The Phase I will demonstrate feasibility with a two-step approach. The first step will dem ...

  6. Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) for Autonomous Teams of UAS Platforms

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N17BT035

    OKSI and Professor Matthew Taylor will develop the Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) command and control tool for teams of UAS platforms. CAMO will incorporate existing databases (e.g., NASA population maps, FAA airspace maps, etc.) as well as real-time data from UAS into a learning-based cognitive control solution that maximizes mission performance while minimizing risk for a t ...

  7. Body-worn Wireless Physiological Monitoring Network

    SBC: Cognionics, Inc.            Topic: N13AT021

    This STTR Phase II proposal continues our work towards building a simple, high quality and unobtrusive mobile physiological sensor platform. The capabilities of the Phase I prototype will be expanded by adding sensors to further acquire SpO2 and respiration in addition to forming a body area network for data collection across multiple points on a subjects body. A software infrastructure will also ...

  8. Innovative Physics-based Modeling Tool for Application to pRFID System on Rotorcraft

    SBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N15AT005

    We propose development of a software capability which, based on use of accurate and efficient exact-physics computational electromagnetics (CEM) solvers together with CAD-import (Computer Aided Design) and direct CAD-to-EM capabilities, will enable optimization of the properties of on-platform pRFID tag/reader antenna systems. For accuracy and modeling flexibility the proposed codes are based on M ...

  9. Pseudospectral Optimal Control for Flight Trajectory Optimization

    SBC: STOCHASTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N15AT006

    This Phase II effort aims to deliver robust, reliable software that instantiates state-of-the-art feedback pseudospectral optimal control algorithms for flight trajectory optimization. The computation and real-time implementation of controls in nonlinear systems remains one of the great challenges for applying optimal control theory in demanding aerospace and industrial systems. From proportional ...

  10. Reliable Manufacturing of Scandia-doped Tungsten Powders for Thermionic Cathodes

    SBC: NGIMAT, LLC            Topic: N15AT010

    In this Phase II STTR effort, nGimat will partner with the University of Kentucky (UK) and 3M/Ceradyne to continue development of W-scandate cathode composite materials. Compared to conventional M-type cathodes, these composite scandate nanomaterials will enable longer cathode lifetime by lowering the required operating temperature. nGimat is an established and successful powder manufacturing comp ...
