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.
SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC Topic: AF16AT22
Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (2Kx2K), response time < 4 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas. MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range. Resistor arrays suffer from low frame r ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: AF16AT16
Future gas turbine propulsion designs, in addition to incorporating variable geometrical engine features, will require controlling and integrating large power generation/extraction, as well as, managing thermal limits of the components. The engine contro...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: AF16AT30
allowing the sensitive RF front-end to be located away from the now more compact phased array antenna. We are proposing a rugged photonic integrated spatial division multiplexing RF link for phased array system with low cost, size, weight and power cons...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
Intelligent and Multiplexable Ultra-High-Temperature Fiber-Optic Pressure Sensors for Robust Distributed Engine ControlSBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: AF16AT18
Next-generation intelligent engines will operate at higher temperatures for increased efficiency and will migrate from centralized to distributed control. There is critical need for sensors for operation at ultra-high temperatures (3000F). Conven...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
Laser and Rapid-thermal Crystalization of GeSn and SiGeSn layers for IR detectors and Si-based OE devicesSBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: AF16AT28
Advanced infrared imaging techniques are of great interest but associated high costs of III-V and II-VI SWIR and MWIR materials prohibit their widespread deployment and integration with other optoelectronic devices. Freedom Photonics and its team partner...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: AF16AT28
Advanced imaging techniques and, novel intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) methods are of great interest to the U.S. Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, but associated high-costs of III-V and II-VI MWIR and SWIR materials prohibit their practical widespread deployment and integration with other optoelectronic devices. In this program, we intend to investigate ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF18AT007
Phase I of this effort involves the creation of a comprehensive end-to-end model of a novel holographic polarimeter.The polarimeter that can be constructed based on our model will be able to determine the full polarization properties (Mueller matrix elements) of scattering, reflecting and absorbing media as a function of the materials depth.Unlike previous attempts, this system will be a real-time ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Metalenz Inc. Topic: AF18AT005
Metasurfaces are a fascinating new direction for producing small form factor optical elements that can be directly integrated with a variety of sensors and illumination sources. Metasurfaces have received extensive attention for their potential applications in imaging optics as they enable significantly more compact camera modules with enhanced functionality and because the unit processes to creat ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: AF18AT010
The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement a low reconfigurable, reliable Free Space Optical (FSO) link supporting high bandwidth communications for satellite to satellite or satellite to ground communication. The FSO Transceiver (Transmitter/Receiver) to be implemented will be small Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) such that it can be easily carried by compact spa ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF16AT14
The ability of Large-eddy simulation (LES) techniques to accurately predict combustion instabilities and the onset of lean blow-out is not yet firmly established, especially in realistic operating conditions. A number of modeling choices play an importan...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
