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. Hybrid Energy Harvesting Systems

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: For this Phase II STTR effort, Prime Photonics and Virginia Tech propose to demonstrate a fully packaged hybrid photovoltaic/magneto-thermoelectric (PV/MTG) panel with improved energy conversion efficiency designed for solar powered air vehicles. In addition to acting as an active thermal backplane for the PV, the MTG is designed to maximize thermal to electrical conversion from the av ...

  2. III-V Based Focal Plane Arrays for Video-Rate Terahertz Imaging

    SBC: TRAYCER DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T006

    Owing to a unique set of intellectual property and core expertise, this Phase II team, led by Traycer Diagnostic Systems, will build and characterize a packaged, 16x16 terahertz focal plane array (FPA) for broadband video-rate imaging at frequencies up to 1.3 THz. Traycer’s competitive advantage is based on its record-performing detectors, novel antennas, and array architectures that permit a d ...

  3. Information Geometric Network Architecture for Heterogeneous Network Management

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF08T011

    We present a comprehensive framework for modeling, optimization and design for heterogeneous networks. The proposed solution aims to effectively address the existing limitations inherited from the generalized network utility maximization (GNUM) framework. In general, GNUM is a unifying mathematical model as it combines different objectives and constraints from different layers into a single global ...

  5. Infrared Metamaterials for Emission Phase Control

    SBC: PLASMONICS INC            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...

  6. Innovations in Physical Modeling and Statistical Exploitation of Electromagnetic Target Signatures

    SBC: Five Focal LLC            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use of training sets of inputs and outputs, a data mode ...

  7. Innovative Earth Gravity Reformulation and Numerical Integration for Responsive SSA

    SBC: OMITRON, INC.            Topic: AF09BT02

    Currently, computation of the geopotential acceleration and its partial derivatives consumes a large portion of numerical integration time in special perturbations (SP) applications. The standard geopotential formulation is expressed as a spherical harmonic expansion in geocentric latitude, geocentric longitude, and radial distance. Recent research by Dr. Beylkin of the University of Colorado ha ...

  8. Instrumentation for hypersonic, air-breathing engines

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF09BT32

    Luna Innovations Incorporated and CURBC (Calspan – University of Buffalo Research Center) are proposing to develop miniature, high-speed, high-temperature, fiber-optic pressure sensors that will fill the void that currently exists between ground and flight test instrumentation. The sensors small size (ø 0.007”) and high-sensitivity (better than ±0.01 psi) combined with a high-speed fiber-op ...

  9. Integrated Quantum Systems Design and Fabrication Technology

    SBC: GUIDED PARTICLE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Our proposal is focused on determining the need and feasibility for integrated quantum systems design and fabrication technologies to enable rapid research and development prototyping, and subsequent production, and an industrial base for integrated quantum machines and systems. We focus on the problem of field-able quantum systems for communication networks to support the Air Force as a use case ...

  10. Intra-Subaperture Adaptive Optical (ISAO) System

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: Current and projected limitations on the maximum power from a high power single mode fiber laser amplifier impose architectural limitations on a high power phased array laser weapon system. Prior studies strongly indicate that when faced with this limitation the optimal approach is (to borrow the term for Paul McManamon) a Phased Array of Phased Arrays (PAPA) geometry wherein large(r) ...
