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. Minority carrier lifetime measurements in Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS)

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: A09AT005

    We propose the development of a system for measuring the minority carrier lifetime in strained layer superlattices (SLS). Mid wave infrared (MWIR) and long wave infrared (LWIR) detectors based on SLS technology show promise due to the large and inexpensive focal plane arrays that can be fabricated. The devices are held back though, by excessive dark current, which is related to a poor minority car ...

  2. OPTOFLUIDIC WAVEGUIDES FOR RECONFIGURABLE PHOTONIC SYSTEMS

    SBC: Illuminaria LLC            Topic: AF08T024

    In this Phase I STTR, Illuminaria, in collaboration with Professor Erickson’s Laboratory at Cornell University, designed and developed a practical liquid based reconfigurable photonic device photonic switch using low voltage microfluidic pumps and microfabricated optofluidic waveguides. Briefly, the basic element of this approach comprises a stream of high index of refraction liquid (core) micr ...

  3. Adaptive Quantum-Dot Photodetectors with Bias-Tunable Barriers

    SBC: ESENSORS INC.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Esensors, with SUNY at Buffalo and SUNY at Albany as a subcontractor, will simulate, fabricate, experimentally investigate, evaluate, and deliver aprototype of a new adaptive IR photodetector based on advanced quantum dot (QD) structures. The detector’s operating principle is based on a new concept of the photoelectron lifetime tunable via adjustable potential barriers in QD structures. The phot ...

  4. Eye-safe Optically-Pumped Gas-filled Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: A08T021

    An eye-safe optically pumped laser based on a gas-filled hollow optical fiber will be demonstrated to lase at both near infrared (IR) and mid IR wavelengths. These lasers will be the first in a new class of IR lasers, based on the combination of hollow-f

  5. Dilution refrigerator technology for scalable quantum computing

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08T020

    Currently large capacity cryostats, capable of hosting experiments for many qubits, require expensive and hard to obtain liquid cryogens. A few small cryo-free systems exist but they are non-ideal for this use. An opportunity exists for a large scale, c

  6. Stochastic Characterization of Naval Aircraft Electromagnetic Vulnerability: ElectroMagnetic Susceptibility Threshold Analysis Techniques by Estimatio

    SBC: ANDRO COMPUTATIONAL SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N08T006

    The objective of this research is to advance technologies for accurately and reliably characterizing the distributed fields within Naval aircraft and the associated currents on avionic systems and their interconnecting cables in the operational electromagnetic (EM) environment. This includes computing the fields and currents within aircraft cockpits, cabins and equipment bays at/near metallic wall ...

  7. Complex Event Detection in Video and Communications

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: N10AT040

    We will demonstrate the feasibility of detecting tactically meaningful complex events in sensor input streams using an efficient pattern matching technology embodied in the Soar cognitive architecture. Our focus in Phase I will be on video streams, such as those that might be produced by unattended ground sensors or unmanned aerial systems. To reduce risk, we propose devoting a portion of our effo ...

  8. Guided Realistic Individualized Practice (GRIP)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: N09T028

    The US Navy is undertaking a Total Force Transformation to develop a more agile, deployable, and capable force to meet the challenges of 21st century conflicts. The adaptive expertise required by the Total Force demands innovative and evidence-based approaches to instruction, training, and assessment that enable the development of both routine and adaptive skills. Given the costs of developing tra ...

  9. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: KAPTEYN-MURNANE LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N10AT012

    We propose to design a high average power Er:Fiber ultrafast laser system which is pumped at 14xxnm, and at the same time solve other problems related to ultrashort pulses in fiber lasers. The advantage of using 14xxnm pumping is the reduction of the standard quantum defect from 37% to 5%, thus greatly reducing the thermal load on the system, which makes it inherently more efficient. We also inten ...

  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 ...
