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.
Self-Supervised Training in Geospatial Applications with a Robust Hierarchical Vision Transformer (STAR)SBC: UNIVERSITY TECHNICAL SERVICES, INC. Topic: OSD22A001
Satellite Imagery in Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT), in conjunction with imagery intelligence (IMINT), geospatial information, and other means of gaining intelligence, has greatly improved the potential of the warfighter and decision makers enabling them to gain a more comprehensive perspective, an in-depth understanding, and a cross-functional awareness of the operational environment. The Artif ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION Topic: A21CT002
Recent advancements in artillery, muzzle velocity, and post-launch propulsion technology have enabled gun-launched projectiles to travel faster and at longer ranges than ever before. To be most effective in flight and at range, the projectiles must incorporate RF sensors to enable advanced, mission-critical functionality. The RF sensors must also be able to survive and operate through extreme gun- ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
Terrain Strength Estimation Using Remote Sensing for Route Planning and Real Time Autonomous MobilitySBC: AUGMNTR, INC. Topic: A21CT021
Terrain strength data are critical inputs to autonomous maneuverability and off-road mobility platforms. Soil strength is a complex variable that varies in both space and time and is a function of the soil composition, density, structure, and moisture content. Because of the interplay of these factors, estimation of terrain strength using remote sensing is unlikely to be successful if it relies on ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC. Topic: A22BT008
The basic idea of a morphing aircraft wherein the vehicle changes its configuration to optimally perform in multiple flight segments holds the promise of achieving unprecedented levels of efficiency. Morphing is most promising for small UAVs and taking inspiration from birds, we can exploit large shape changes, rapid inertia changes, articulation etc., to fly in congested urban and indoor spaces ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: TDA RESEARCH, INC. Topic: A21CT016
5.0 volt lithium batteries could provide higher power and greater energy density than existing 4.2 volt batteries, but there is currently not a known combination of electrodes and electrolytes that are stable under repeated charge/discharge cycles. Individual components such as the anode, new olivine cathodes and ionic liquid electrolyte are individually stable at these voltages, but they fail at ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
High Energy Density Resin Systems for Additive Manufacturing of Explosive and Propellant FormulationsSBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: A21CT004
The Army needs to develop energetic formulations suitable for additive manufacturing. One approach is to tailor energetic prepolymers and plasticizers to enable rapid curing. This would lower manufacturing costs, increase manufacturing throughput as well as increase the range and lethality of the system it is incorporated into. To date, the problem with energetic polymers and additive manufacturin ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: A21CT007
The blinding or disabling of focal plane arrays (FPAs) can greatly impair situational awareness for the warfighter. Some passive technologies, such as filters, can selectively remove certain wavelengths if those wavelengths are known to be threats, but there exists a need for a technology that can 1) attenuate 99.9% of high intensity light in a localized region within the viewing area, 2) perform ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: A21CT012
The US Army and other DOD forces occasionally need to breach reinforced concrete structures. There are several existing methods to assess the structural properties and predict reinforcement but each of these methods has specific deficiencies (e.g. to loud, too large, too inconsistent). Ground penetrating radar is a promising technology for non-destructive concrete substructure characterization but ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: A22BT011
Physical Sciences Inc. and Prof. Seth Bank at the University of Texas Austin will develop thin-absorber avalanche photodiodes based on digital alloys of AlInAsSb for high-performance photodetection between 2.0 – 2.5 μm. The AlInAsSb quaternary alloy system allows for compositional grading throughout the device structure, enabling novel photodiode architectures inaccessible with other III-V allo ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: A21CT003
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) propose to develop and demonstrate vat polymerization capabilities with an ultra-violet (UV) curable energetic polymer binder that will be used to produce gun propellant grains. Vat polymerization will present the opportunity for performance gains through highly engineered complex structures. Formulation trade studie ...STTR Phase I 2022 Department of DefenseArmy
