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. Super-Efficient Mid-Infrared Quantum Cascade Lasers with Continuous-Wave Wall-Plug Efficiencies in Excess of 40%

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N17AT006

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) demonstrate a single-element, 4.6 micron-emitting quantum-cascade-laser (QCL) with > 40 % continuous-wave (CW) wallplug efficiency (WPE) at room temperature; (2) perform a comprehensive simulation to achieve a design for a monolithic QCL operating in a single spatial mode to 10 W CW output power; 3) perform a thermal-management analysis for the des ...

  2. Suppression of Wind Turbine Clutter from Radar Data

    SBC: MATRIX RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: It is well known that wind turbine clutter (WTC) presents a significant challenge to detecting targets in civilian and military applications. The large radar cross section (RCS) of wind turbines, combined with their significant range of Doppler spread, make traditional clutter mitigation techniques effectively useless. The objective of this Phase I effort is to develop a physically con ...

  3. Surface-Emitting, Monolithic Beam-Combined Mid-Wave IR Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N13AT006

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: (1) design a grating-coupled surface-emitting (GCSE) active-photonic-crystal (APC) 4.6 micron-emitting quantum-cascade laser (QCL) to deliver 15 W diffraction-limited CW power in the main lobe of the far-field beam pattern; (2) design a GCSE-APC QCL structure with monolithic aperture-filling optical elements for obtaining close to 90 % of the surface- ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. SWAT- Scalable W(R)ubber through Advanced Technology

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Opportunity: Guayule, a US native plant, is the only alternate rubber crop with an established, mechanized, agronomic system. Problem: Low rubber yields and lack of effective resin and bagasse coproduct valorization, have prevented widespread adoption by American farmers and processors. Rubber is only made when the cytoplasmic monomer pool (isopentenyl-pyrophosphate; IPP) is larger than that requi ...

  7. Synergistic MIMO Radar and Data Adaptive Signal Processing Experimentation

    SBC: INTEGRATED ADAPTIVE APPLICATIONS, INC            Topic: N11AT002

    The proposed work seeks to clearly demonstrate the advantage of the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar architecture over a similar single-input multiple-output (SIMO) or phased array system; the benefit of applying data-adaptive signal processing techniques in favor of their data-independent counterparts; and the utility of transmitting advanced probing waveforms as opposed to conventiona ...

  8. Synthesis of New, Insensitive Energetic Materials

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N11AT034

    Advanced ordnance and propulsion systems utillize materials, such as RDX and HMX, that provide good performance but cannot meet todays more stringent safety and environmental requirements. Unfortunately, in newer compounds created to replace them, the performance falls with the sensitivity. The ORBITEC team proposes the development of new energetic materials that will be both high performance and ...

  9. Technologies for Nanoscale Imaging Using Coherent Extreme Ultraviolet and Soft X-Ray Light

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT11

    ABSTRACT: Microscopy is a critical enabling technology for advancing our understanding of nature. Imaging nano-scale objects with light in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray regions of the spectrum has advantages over visible light for several reasons including: resolution, elemental specificity, and the ability to image internal structures. Coherent diffractive imaging (CDI) has been ...

  10. Terahertz Frequency Materials Testing at Cryogenic Temperatures and in High Magnetic Fields

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: Terahertz (THz) spectroscopies offer unmatched non-contact probing of low-energy excitations underlying electronic transport and magnetism in a wide range of novel materials. To-date, expensive and complex THz Time Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) systems are the most common THz source used in these studies. Lower cost, continuous wave (CW-THz) spectroscopy systems can offer comparable per ...
