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. A Unique Focal Plane Array Detector for THz and MM Wave Imaging

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT33

    Detecting explosives and weapons under clothing or in hand carried packages, and imaging terrain and objects through fog and smoke are two high-priority needs that can be met using light in the Terahertz frequency range. However, to image concealed threats, and aid in navigation in fog and smoke, a practical, low cost THz camera is needed. Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) in collaboration with Re ...

  3. Novel Algorithm/Hardware Partnerships for Real-Time Nonlinear Control

    SBC: Elissar, LLC            Topic: AF09BT06

    The growing complexity of future military systems demands the development of high-performance nonlinear control algorithms. The goal of this proposal is to develop a specially designed software/hardware architecture to enable real-time autonomous closed-loop control of nonlinear high-dimensional dynamical systems. Following the recent success of pseudospectral (PS) computational control methods in ...

  4. Frequency agile THz detectors for multiplicative mixing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT26

    ABSTRACT: A system that operates at room temperature and that could scan for concealed weapons from standoff distances of >10 m would be a tremendous asset for US military homeland security personnel worldwide. THz imaging can, potentially, be used for this application, but it requires the development of a new class of THz detectors whereby the signal to noise ratios are improved significantly. ...

  5. High-throughput femtosecond fiber laser microstructuring system

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: AF08T029

    Based on our success in developing the world first commercial 100 micro Joule fs fiber laser system and our leading technology development in ultrashort pulsed fiber laser, PolarOnyx and University of California at Davis proposes, for the first time, a fs-high power (100 W), high energy (>100 uJ) and high repetition rate (MHz) fiber laser microstructuring system to meet with the requirement of the ...

  6. Speckle image processing for conformal sub-aperture arrays

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: AF08T021

    Future Air Force platforms require electro-optic long range imaging systems conformal to the surface of the aircraft to minimize drag and maximize stealth. The long imaging range often means having to compensate for atmospheric turbulence as well as the boundary layer around the aircraft. During the first phase of this STTR project, Optical Physics Company (OPC) demonstrated the feasibility o ...

  8. Plasmonic Cavity Spectroscopic Polarimeter

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T027

    This Small Business Technology Transfer program will develop a spectroscopic polarimeter-on-a-chip using novel plasmonic resonant cavities sensitive to linear polarization over a narrow wavelength range. Spectral selection will be possible through geometric scaling, with this work concentrating on the visible to near infrared wavelength band. Dielectric gratings with subwavelength period will act ...

  9. Orthogonal Chip Based Electronic Sensors for Chemical Agents

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: AF08T015

    Recent years have seen a shift in threats to US national security. Today increasing focus for national security is management of terrorist activities. Deliberately exposing a civilian population to chemicals and explosives to cause harm represents a looming terrorist threat. Early detection and identification is a difficult but essential element to minimizing the threat. The Seacoast Science/U ...
