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. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation (RADARS)

    SBC: COLDQUANTA, INC.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta, in partnership with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado at Boulder, proposes to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combines Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF elec ...

  2. Detection of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Field Bioeffects in Living Cells

    SBC: OCEANIT LABORATORIES INC            Topic: AF18AT001

    Oceanit proposes to develop a system to characterize weak electromagnetic fields for the investigation of the effect of both thermal and non-thermal RF/magnetic fields on biological material, and to detect resulting biological impact of the energy deposited.

  3. High Performance Computing for DEAP Imaging through Atmospheric Turbulence

    SBC: HIGH PERFORMANCE IMAGING LLC            Topic: AF18AT006

    Previous research indicates the digital holography (DH) methods when combined with model-based iterative reconstruction can solve the challenging problems posed by the need to image through deep turbulence real time. In this Phase I STTR research, we propose to analyze and design a high-performance computing system and associated Deep-turbulence Estimator for Anisoplanatic Propogation (DEAP) algor ...

  4. Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop and evaluate computational methods for a Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor (VDHWFS).VDHWFS based imaging offers the potential to provide the equivalent of wide field of view adaptive optics (AO) compensated imaging, but without the added complexity of AO components and hardware.Recent result for coherent imaging developed by ...

  5. Mechanically Static High Speed 3-D Optical/Digital Holographic Polarimeter

    SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF18AT007

    Phase I of this effort involves the creation of a comprehensive end-to-end model of a novel holographic polarimeter.The polarimeter that can be constructed based on our model will be able to determine the full polarization properties (Mueller matrix elements) of scattering, reflecting and absorbing media as a function of the materials depth.Unlike previous attempts, this system will be a real-time ...

  6. Non-Linear Adaptive Optics (NLAO)

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop an approach for non-linear control of hysteresis and incorporate (if necessary) integrated Multi-Input-Multi-Output real time control with this capability.Our control systems already include a proven high speed real time control approach to determine the optimal set of actuator commands that satisfy inter-actuator stroke limitations.O ...

  7. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Adaptive optics (AO) system performance is hindered by the mechanical limits of the deformable mirror (DM), namely stroke limits, interactuator stroke limits, and mechanical resonance.The nature of the multi-in multi-out (MIMO) control system does not lend itself well to notch filters to combat the mechanical resonances, and the stroke limits introduce non-linearities to the system.The traditional ...

  8. HASLOC: Hierarchical And-Or Structures forLocalization and Object Recognition

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT014

    Target detection and recognition is a challenging problem because of changes in appearance, viewing direction, occlusion and other covariates. Systems that can accurately and efficiently detect and track objects can provide several benefits in surveillance, monitoring and other applications. As part of this effort, we propose to develop a robust learning-based approach to detect, track and recogni ...

  9. Radio Frequency (RF) Filter Tuning Element

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18AT015

    This proposed effort will focus on the design, development and analysis of a high voltage BST based varactor for tunable filter applications. The high voltage BST varactor will enable wide tuning range filters with high quality factor and increased power handling and linearity. Advanced filter design techniques will also be leveraged to increase the effective quality factor of the filter resonator ...

  10. Orientation-patterned Semiconductor Crystals with Low Insertion Loss and High Resistance to Laser Damage

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF18AT016

    The Air Force needs tunable laser systems with high average power in the mid-infrared region of the spectrum for military applications including defense against heat-seeking missiles.Currently-fieldedlaser systems, based on nonlinear frequency conversion in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN), have limited optical power at wavelengths between 4 m and 5 m because of intrinsic absorption in th ...
