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. Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integrated Wavelength Beam Combining

    SBC: PENDAR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT005

    Pendar Technologies proposes to develop the next generation of compact, high power quantum cascade laser (QCL) sources with output power exceeding 10 Watts at a wavelength of 4.6 microns. The proposed subsystem will include a DFB QCL array integrated monolithically with power amplifiers, low-loss passive waveguides resulting from ion implantation and optical elements aimed at realizing on-chip wav ...

  2. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: PENDAR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    In this program, we will develop solutions to optimize QCL fabrication processes, such as facet passivation and high thermal conductivity coatings, that will mitigate the reliability issues for high power QCL applications. In phase I, we will first evaluate all concepts and efforts that have been largely investigated for GaAs based high power diode lasers and transfer the knowledge to InP based QC ...

  3. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: MANTEL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  4. Quench Monitoring and Control System for High-Temperature Superconducting Coils

    SBC: ADVANCED CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT016

    The Navy has been developing superconducting systems, based on high-temperature superconductors (HTS), for future use on Navy ships. One of the challenges associated with superconducting magnets is the possibility of a quench, which is an event where a local hot spot develops within the superconductor that quickly spreads throughout the device, driving it into its normal and dissipative state. Sen ...

  5. ALCHEMI: Attacker Learning in Cybernetworks using Heterogeneous Energy-guided Model Inference

    SBC: APTIMA INC            Topic: N19AT021

    The United States relies on networks of cyber-physical systems to conduct military and commercial operations, such as logistics, transportation, information sharing, energy production and distribution, financial transactions, elections, and infrastructure management. As the volume and diversity of cyber-attacks on these networks dramatically increase, there is a growing need for advanced tools and ...

  6. Propagation Established through Autonomous Raman Lidar (PEARL)

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: N19AT015

    Accurate characterization of and propagation modeling through the Marine Boundary Layer is critical for maximizing Electro-Magnetic (EM) systems signal exploitation for naval asset offensive, defensive, and stealth operational performance. Strong temperature and humidity gradients in the Surface Boundary Layer lead to optical paths exhibiting Electro-Optic Infrared (EOIR) anomalous refraction and ...

  7. Interlaminar Reinforcement of Composite Rotorcraft Components via Tailored Nanomorphologies of Aligned Carbon Nanotubes (A-CNTs)

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N19AT003

    Composites are often used in aerospace applications due to their superior specific strength and stiffness properties, as well as their resistance to fatigue and corrosion. In particular for rotorcraft, composites offer additional benefits for their versatility in tailoring material properties for such components as rotor blades. However, rotors introduce additional challenges by including multiple ...

  8. 3-Band Picosecond High Energy Compact Laser System

    SBC: Q-PEAK, INCORPORATED            Topic: N19AT009

    The Navy seeks technology that is oriented toward a deeper experimental and theoretical understanding of marine turbulence and laser light propagation in the marine boundary. Current measurement techniques, such as Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) technique, are limited to resolutions of 0.5 meters or greater and fall short of the required millimeter level resolution. A new type of spectral imaging modal ...

  9. Catastrophic Optical Damage Mitigation in Quantum Cascade Lasers by Facet Disordering

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    Quantum cascade laser optical output power is limited by laser facet catastrophic optical damage (COD). In edge-emitting semiconductor lasers COD is a thermal runaway process wherein the front facet of the laser heats under high power operation. This facet heating reduces the semiconductor bandgap which increases the optical absorption and also increases the electrical injection current in the fac ...

  10. Novel Development of an Intelligent Quench Detection (QD) Method for HTS Coils

    SBC: TAI-YANG RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N19AT016

    Energy to Power Solutions (e2P) has teamed with quench detection (QD) expert Dr. Yuri Lvovsky (retired GE), Dr. Sastry Pamidi of the Center for Advanced Power Systems (FSU-CAPS), and American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) to design, fabricate, and test a robust, reliable, and low cost QD system. e2P’s proposed system is a vastly different quench avoidance system that will provide multiple le ...
