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.

  6. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface Em ...

  8. 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++ ...

  9. Two-color Infrared Laser Arrays for Scene Projection

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A17AT018

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (> 1Kx1K), response time < 1 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas. MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range. Resistor arrays suffer from low frame ...

  10. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF17AT029

    Current fielded sensor protection is limited to fixed wavelength filters. Broadband filters designed to circumvent multi-wavelength laser threats are plagued by low transmittance, which degrades the sensitivity and performance of the sensor. Future warfighter threats include frequency agile lasers and thus have the potential of defeating fixed filters. Self-activating (passive) devices where prote ...
