The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Broadband Low-Coherence Scatterometer

    SBC: Spectabit Optics LLC            Topic: AF17AT010

    The US Air Force has noted a need for a tool for broadband (300 nm2m) measurement of optical propagation properties such as absorption and scattering coefficients. A simple and inexpensive generic tool for extracting these properties from samples would be beneficial to many areas of both DoD and general scientific and industrial research. The present proposal seeks to develop a commercial instrume ...

  3. Blended Reality for Live, Virtual, and Constructive Field Training

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF17AT011

    A Battlefield Airman (BA) has one of the most challenging positions in the military. BA personnel are tasked with the dual roles of being warfighters as well as Combat Controllers, Pararescuemen, Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) members and Special Operations Weather Technicians often while behind enemy lines. These complex duties require high fidelity training. In some cases, such as pararesc ...

  4. Target Tracking via Deep Learning

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT027

    Persistent tracking of high-value targets is of great interest for reconnaissance and surveillance applications. In recent work, deep neural networks have demonstrated excellent performance on the popular Visual Object Tracking (VOT) challenge; however, these algorithms have not been tested on applications of interest to the Air Force, such as ground vehicle tracking in video recorded from Unmanne ...

  5. Bioaerosol Detector Wide Area Network

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: A17AT020

    Historically, the monitoring and detection of biological threats has been carried out via the deployment of high sensitivity / high complexity monitoring nodes to insure high probability of detection and low false alarm rate. Unfortunately, this detection strategy has inherent limits with respect to coverage and response due to its high deployment/support costs, mandating a new approach to environ ...

  6. Mobile Atmospheric Turbulence-Refractivity Sensor

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT008

    In this effort, tOSC and the University of New Mexico COSMIAC (Configurable Space Microsys- tems Innovation Applications Center) will combine to generate a Target-in-the-Loop (TIL) system concept that can simultaneously measure the strength of atmospheric turbulence and scintillation, as well as the refractivity occurring at the measurement time. For this system concept, we will leverage existing ...

  7. Adaptive and Smart Materials for Advanced Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF17AT018

    Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies covering a broad range of technologies and processes have been under continuous and accelerating development since the 80s. While there are still fundamental hurdles such as low production rates and small sizes, AM holds tremendous promise in terms of revolutionizing manufacturing. Recent trends include direct-printing and incorporating sensors and electr ...

  8. Reliable Aerothermodynamic Predictions for Hypersonic Flight for High Speed ISR

    SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF17AT014

    The proposed project will develop advanced modeling capabilities for hypersonic flow problems, specifically for predicting aerothermodynamic flow field for estimation of drag, thermal and structural loads, and for surface interactions. A quantum-to-continuum suite of tools that develop molecular relaxation models based on computational chemistry and quasi-classical trajectory (QCT) analysis will b ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
