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: Tanner Research, Inc. Topic: AF12BT03
ABSTRACT: Tanner Research, Inc., in collaboration with University of Maryland, will determine feasibility and plan for development of technology based on insect visual sensing and processing, which will integrate three modes related to navigation and guidance: motion detection from imaging sensing; polarization sensing and processing to implement a celestial compass; and ocellar sensing and proce ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC Topic: AF12BT04
ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
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 ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CREATIVE AERO ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS INC. Topic: AF12BT12
ABSTRACT: Under this collaborative effort, Creative Aero Engineering Solutions (CAES) and its academic partner University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) are pleased to team on the research entitled"Scaled Transonic Dynamic Aeroelasticity through Wind Tunnel Testing (ST-DAWTT),"consisting of a novel approach for characterizing the transonic aeroelastic environment of a full-scale fighter in the ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc. Topic: AF12BT13
ABSTRACT: The proposed research will develop a method of compensating atmospheric disturbances in the transmitting subapertures of a phased array transceiver operating in the infrared. The aero-optical boundary layer and atmospheric turbulence create phase variations within each subaperture. To compensate these variations, an adaptive optical system will be used in each subaperture. The propos ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
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) ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
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 ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: OPTOMEC, INC. Topic: AF09BT26
ABSTRACT: The goal of this phase II proposal is to develop a commercial platform for printing high performance, single-walled carbon nanotube transistor circuits on large-area plastic substrate. Automated processes will be developed for the room temperature printing of metal, semiconductor, and dielectric materials with micron-scale alignment accuracy. The transistor performance will be enha ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Sensormetrix, INC Topic: AF10BT30
ABSTRACT: It is proposed to demonstrate a surface fabricated using thin film metamaterial designs that can exhibit rapidly varying angular as well as spectral emissivity profiles. The technology enables specification of desired angular pattern at design time, and can be fabricated in large area formats. BENEFIT: The proposed technology will allow directional control of thermal radiation in app ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC Topic: AF10BT02
ABSTRACT: Optical refrigeration is currently the only demonstrated all-solid-state cryocooling technology. Optical cryocoolers are devices that use laser light to cool small crystal or glass cooling elements. The cooling element absorbs the laser light and reradiates it at higher energy, an example of anti-Stokes fluorescence. The difference between the energy of the outgoing and incoming light c ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
