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.
SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION Topic: AF08BT03
ABSTRACT: Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), proposes to further develop and test in realistic settings an innovative method for representing and managing multidisciplinary design information from a wide range of analysis tools. The practical implication resulting from this novel approach is a mathematical framework to confidently determ ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
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 ...STTR Phase II 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
Organic&Hybrid Organic/Inorganic-Based Graded-Index/Layered Optical Coatings by Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)SBC: INTER MATERIALS, LLC Topic: AF10BT19
ABSTRACT: One of the Air Force main interests is to improve the antireflective (AR) optical properties of polycarbonate by exploring new coating materials or coating techniques to eliminate delamination and stress cracks due to the mismatch in the coefficient of thermal expansion between the coatings and the polymer substrates. SwRI and INTER Materials are in a unique position to assist the Air F ...STTR Phase II 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
Highly-Scalable Computational-Based Engineering Algorithms for Emerging Parallel Machine ArchitecturesSBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: AF10BT13
ABSTRACT: RNET and The Ohio State University propose to use algorithmic modifications and multi-level parallelization techniques and tools to improve the scalability of the aero-line/aero-elastic coupled CFD/CSD codes relevant to the DoD/AF (e.g., CREATE/Kestrel). The optimizations will address inter-node and intra-node parallelization to better target emerging compute architectures (e.g., multi ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt Topic: AF12BT13
ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for an adaptive optics system using a fiber laser array as the spatial phase correction system within the subaperature of an array of discrete telescopes, Optonicus and The University of Dayton propose the development of a new Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) system. The integration of new fiber-array architectures with novel imaging and ada ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: AF12BT12
ABSTRACT: Experimental testing of dynamic models has been performed for more than 50 years and a wealth of data exists for individual models. However, this data is often either restricted as proprietary or is not suitable for CSE tool validation as a result of incomplete model or test information. Mainstream Engineering proposes to design, fabricate, and test a scaled fighter for aeroelastic ...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: 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
