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. Low Loss, High Average Power PM WDMs for Raman Fiber Lasers

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: AF13AT03

    We propose a new fiber WDM fabrication method for single mode high power fiber laser. Our new approach will enable kW operation for both single mode fiber WDM and PCF WDM. In Phase I, a proof of concept experiment has been demonstrated. In phase II, we will target at delivery of a reliable prototypes for both step index fiber WDM and PCF WDM.

  2. Tool to Predict High-Power Electromagnetic Effects on Mobile Targets

    SBC: XL SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF15AT05

    ABSTRACT: XL Scientific LLC will leverage over a half a century of High Power Microwave (HPM) Effects Test and Modeling experience to develop an integrated DREAM2 toolkit that models the vulnerability and susceptibility of electronic systems, subsystems and components to directed energy (DE) HPM weapons. The analysis toolkit developed will center on three essential modules, critical in a full asse ...

  3. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Optic Development

    SBC: Rochester Precision Optics, LLC            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop a fast axis collimating lens for quantum cascade lasers (QCL) which emit in the midwave-infrared (MWIR) range. These lenses must withstand the stress of both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed laser emission. These high laser powers may cause ablation of lens material reducing effectiveness of the optic and leading to failure. Thus, a high damage ...

  4. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: Digital binocular helmet-mounted display (HMD) systems are now available that allow high resolution wide field-of-view (WFOV) digital imagery to be displayed on high resolution microdisplays. These digital HMD systems require a low-latency embedded vision processor (LLEVS) capable of implementing the necessary image processing algorithms. An SA Photonics LLEVS will be implemented on next ...

  5. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied by coke formation. The coke deposits on the combustor and nozzle walls reduces heat fluxes and c ...

  7. Broad Spectrum Optical Property Characterization

    SBC: SPECTRAL MOLECULAR IMAGING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT12

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a flexible, low-cost, integrated and sensitive broad spectrum optical property characterization system. We propose a hyperspectral imager designed for operation in the 300nm 2000nm spectral region with state-of-the-art spectral and spatial resolution through the use of a high density array of high finesse (F = 1000) tuna ...

  10. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: CARBON TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have great potential for high performance RF applications. Theoretical study has shown that the electrical current in a CFET is intrinsically linear. Today, linearity is the underlying limitation in increasing the data transport densities of wireless networks. The complex modulation protocols used to achieve higher data rates requires linear amplifiers. Increasing ...
