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. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...

  2. Innovative Methodologies for Manufacturing of Lethality Test Articles

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: MDA17T001

    Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) is an attractive technology for the production of lethality test articles due to the potential for significantly reduced lead time and manufacturing cost. However, in order to be effective in providing accurate lethality data, the properties of the AM material have to match closely the properties of conventionally manufactured alloys found in real threat target ...

  3. Multisensor-Integrated Organ-on-a-Chip

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT002

    The Air Force seeks three-dimensional bioprinted tissue that can accurately replicate complex multi-cell function and that can be integrated with biosensors. To address this need, Spectral Energies in collaboration with Prof. Khademhosseini of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) proposes to develop an organ-on-a-chip system. The organ-on-a-chip system will be capable of accurately mod ...

  4. Space-Based Computational Hyperspectral Machine Vision using Compressed Sensing Neural Networks

    SBC: Kent Optronics, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT015

    In this STTR Phase I proposal, Kent Optronics (KOI) together with its partner, Rice University, propose to develop novel deep learning algorithms to perform machine vision tasks such as target recognition and tracking utilizing the direct measurements from a compressive hyperspectral imaging system. By skipping the hypercube reconstruction, this combination of hardware and software will allow real ...

  5. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: APPLIED OPTIMIZATION, INC.            Topic: AF19AT008

    The research objective of the proposed work is to increase the efficiency of the laser return of a Sodium Guide Star Laser (SGSL) reflected off the sodium layer for increased reliability and applicability of the artificial guide star technique. During Phase I, we will demonstrate the concept of maximizing the SGSL signal returns using numerical simulations that account for the effects of atmospher ...

  6. Resilient Directional Mesh Enhanced Tactical Airborne Networks

    SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION            Topic: AF17BT003

    FIRST RF will lead the Phase II effort and will leverage the system architecture of the MAINLINE system and integrate multifunctional SiGe integrated circuits (ICs) developed by The University of California San Diego under the supervision of Prof. Gabriel Rebeiz. The SiGe devices developed during the Phase II effort will significantly reduce the power requirements of the MAINLINE system allowing f ...

  7. Diagnostics for Performance Quantification and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: INNOVATIVE SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: AF19AT011

    In Phase I, ISSI will design and demonstrate a laser absorption-based sensor for time-resolved measurements of combustion fuel/product concentrations (H2O, CO, CO2 and fuel) and gas temperature within the detonation channels and nozzle exit-plane of a rotating detonation rocket engine (RDRE). The goal of this STTR is to develop a single sided sensor that plugs into the outer wall of the RDRE simil ...

  8. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas

    SBC: AMERICAN TECHNICAL COATINGS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT013

    Successful completion of this Phase II proposal will fully characterize and evaluate a material for use in RF windows on hypersonic flight vehicles. Phase II will specifically examine the materials suitability through RF testing in X, Ku, and Ka bands and at elevated temperatures to 2000°F. The desired outcome will be a material with predictable, repeatable dielectric properties over frequency ...

  9. Information-based Norms on Flow, Operations and Traffic Over Networks (INFOTON)

    SBC: ISEA TEK, LLC            Topic: N18AT027

    The Internet of Things (IoT) connects people, data, and "things" (e.g., software, sensors, platforms), facilitating the translation of information into actions. Although naval platforms’ networks and communication suites have evolved significantly in the past few years to support such required connectivity, one of the greatest technical challenges still facing the military community is the proce ...

  10. Advanced Diagnostic for Performance and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: Exo-Atmospheric Technologies LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines (RDRE)are being developed to take advantage of the near instantaneous heat release potential of detonation waves versus conventional deflagration-based chemical reactions in combustion applications. However, the detonation product environment is extreme and current instrumentation to measure wall / surface conditions within the detonation chamber are lacking. The ...
