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. 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 ...

  2. Efficient and Faster Methods for Performing General Wave-Optics Propagation

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18BT004

    We will develop hybrid wave propagation approach that implements FFT and EMA (Efficient Matrix Algorithms) propagators in a fashion that is transparent to the user but insures the highest efficiency and accuracy for a given propagation problem. We will develop rules to decide which propagation approach is ideal for a given situation. The propagation algorithms will be coded in Vulkan/CUDA and C++ ...

  3. Wave-Optic Propagation Computation Enabled by Machine Learning Algorithms (WOPA)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: AF18BT004

    To address the U.S. Air Force need for Developing innovative wave-optics Propagation methods to model laser systems that are faster, efficient and more accurate, Luminit, LLC, and University of Southern California (USC) propose to develop Wave-Optic Propagation Computation Enabled by Machine Learning Algorithms (WOPA). The proposed algorithms will be based on cutting off redundant frequencies upon ...

  4. Lasers Based on Gas or Liquid Filled Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibers

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18BT015

    We propose a compact, monolithic, power scalable, hollow core fiber-gas laser emitting in the atmospheric transmission region in the mid-IR. The proposed optically pumped fiber-gas laser system is efficient, has a small footprint as well has a broad spectral coverage in the mid-IR. Due to the unique approach employed, the proposed technology allows generation of mid-IR output with varying pulse re ...

  6. Nublu: Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an assured information sharing framework for cloud-based systems that leverages our ongoing work in the areas of policy-based usage management and semantic interoperability. The development of this framework will involve the creation of a novel approach to information sharing that treats security as a commodity that can be dynamically provisioned within the cloud, ...

  7. Autonomic Performance Assurance for Multi-Processor Supervisory Control

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: OSD11T01

    Multi-processor computing systems are growing in capacity and usage. They encompass multiple, distributed implementations as well as heterogeneous, embedded computing architectures. The processing density enabled by such approaches holds promise for unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAVs) with their plethora of mission sensors and command and control processing requirements. However, the software ...

  8. Design and Analysis of Multi-core Software

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD11T03

    Modern processor design is trending increasingly toward multicore architectures. This is problematic for programmers because writing a correct parallel program is known to be difficult compared to writing the equivalent sequential program. Additionally, a wide body of sequential code has already been developed that cannot exploit the power offered by these new cores because it was written in a s ...

  9. Operating System Mechanisms for Many-Core Systems

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD11T04

    In the Phase I portion of this STTR, Securboration and renowned multicore expert Dr. Frank Mueller from North Carolina State University designed, developed, and benchmarked the proof-of-concept Pico-kernel Adaptive and Scalable Operating-system (PICASO) for many-core architectures. The Securboration Team took a scientific, experimentation-based approach to identifying and resolving shortcomings wi ...

  10. Directionally-Tailored Infrared Emission and/or Transmission

    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 ...
