The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Reconfigurable / cognitive optical communications

    SBC: VULCAN WIRELESS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT010

    This proposal will outline a bi-directional software defined Free Space Optics (FSO) laser communications testbed with flexible optical elements and reprogrammable waveform and signal processing elements. Vulcan Wireless Inc. currently manufacturers a 1550nm, eye safe, software defined Laser Communications Testbed MD-LC-1 and will use this as a basis for the Phase 1 effort. We will also be teaming ...

  3. Situational Awareness for Mission Critical Ship Systems

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N18AT009

    With the advent of the Navy’s newest classes of all-electric vessels, the interdependence and functional correlation of the power plant with other mission-critical ship systems such as integrated cooling, weapons, navigation, air surveillance, and IT control network systems, maintaining optimal oversight and control of power distribution aboard ship becomes increasingly challenging. As the opera ...

  4. Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC)-Enabled Chip-Scale Atomic Devices (CSAD) for Precision Navigation and Timing (PNT) Applications

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP            Topic: AF19BT001

    Sensors based on chip-scale atomic devices (CSADs) offer portability, manufacturability, and high performance for precision navigation and timing (PNT) missions. Key systems for PNT including atom interferometric gyroscopes (AIG) and atomic clocks. Ongoing advances and innovations in photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are directly relevant to CSADs. Different material bases have been used in PICs ...

  5. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Large ground-based telescopes require adaptive optics (AO) to correct for distortions introduced by atmospheric turbulence. In order to function, the AO system must track a bright point source. Although a natural star may be used, full sky coverage requires an artificial beacon created with a laser. The most common type of laser guide star (LGS) employs the mesospheric layer of sodium atoms at an ...

  7. Deep Ultraviolet Light Sources for Water Purification and Surface Sterilization

    SBC: TRIPLE RING TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A18BT006

    This proposal is related to the development of high efficiency ultraviolet (UV) light emitting devices (LEDs) operating at 265 nm and 219 nm, which have the potential to replace conventional mercury lamps for many applications including dinsinfection and water purification. To date, the wall-plug efficiency of commercial LEDs operating at 265 nm is in the range of 2-3%, which has been limited by t ...

  8. Integrated learning-based and regularization-based super resolution for extreme MWIR image enhancement

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N17AT016

    OKSI and Northwestern University propose to develop a single-image super-resolution (SR) methodology for mid-wave infrared (MWIR) imagery that combines learning-based and regularization-based approaches to produce extreme enhancement of low-resolution images. We will also develop a detector-limited imaging system specifically designed to be used with the SR methodology for which even higher levels ...

  9. Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) for Autonomous Teams of UAS Platforms

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N17BT035

    The Navy needs cognitive control capabilities that enable an autonomous robotic team comprised of a ground control station node and a team of UAS platforms to operate independently (or with minimal human oversight) while carrying out complex missions. A cognitive control capability needs to be developed that concurrently optimizes the balance of mission risk / performance with respect to the Navy ...
