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.

  1. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT006

    Tau Technologies is teaming with Dr. David Voelz and his research group at New Mexico State University (NMSU) to propose “Vibration Imaging for the characterization of extended non-cooperative targets�, which employs dual-pulses in two different variations for vibration imaging in order to characterize non-cooperative targets at extended standoffs. One method is based on double-pulse ...

  2. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: EXCITING TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF19AT006

    The imaging vibrometer development will be based on a representative Directed Energy (DE) aperture assumed to be 30 cm. This effort will provide both DE and Combat IDentification (CID), modes for relative short range DE operations, and an ISR Combat IDentification (CID) mode for operation at extended range. A combination of analytic derivations and wave optics simulations will be used to define a ...

  3. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...

  4. Synthetic Scene Generation for Wide Application including High Performance Computing Environments

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT007

    Efficient design, build, and test of an HEL system leverages modeling and simulation (M&S) to reduce cost and increase robustness. Designers use models to explore parameter variations and to estimate performance in conditions which cannot be tested due to physical or financial constraints. This provides significant savings in cost and time. Because live testing is so expensive, it is best used as ...

  5. Synthetic Scene Generation for Wide Application including High Performance Computing Environments

    SBC: STELLAR SCIENCE LTD. CO.            Topic: AF19AT007

    We will deliver a new software architecture for scene generation named the Realistic Image and Neighborhood Generator (RING). Instead of being tied to a single tool, RING will provide interfaces suitable for a wide variety of image and scene rendering tools to run and interact with other codes. As an initial implementation of the interfaces, we will incorporate Stellar Science’s powerful, f ...

  6. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: APPLIED OPTIMIZATION, INC.            Topic: AF19AT008

    The research objective of the proposed work is to increase the efficiency of the laser return of a Sodium Guide Star Laser (SGSL) reflected off the sodium layer for increased reliability and applicability of the artificial guide star technique. During Phase I, we will demonstrate the concept of maximizing the SGSL signal returns using numerical simulations that account for the effects of atmospher ...

  7. Autonomous Decision Making via Hierarchical Brain Emulation-- 19-009

    SBC: METRON INCORPORATED            Topic: AF19AT009

    The objective of this project is to develop human intelligence-inspired algorithms that exploit multi-modal sources of low and high quality data to achieve a series of objectives such as detection, localization, tracking, and classification. A Bayesian model-based hierarchical adaptive decision making (HADM) algorithm will be developed which includes multiple levels of decision making organized in ...

  8. Diagnostics for Performance Quantification and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: INNOVATIVE SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: AF19AT011

    In Phase I, ISSI will design and demonstrate a laser absorption-based sensor for time-resolved measurements of combustion fuel/product concentrations (H2O, CO, CO2 and fuel) and gas temperature within the detonation channels and nozzle exit-plane of a rotating detonation rocket engine (RDRE). The goal of this STTR is to develop a single sided sensor that plugs into the outer wall of the RDRE simil ...

  9. Ultrahigh-Bandwidth Robust Performance Diagnostics for Rotating Detonation Engines

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Spectral Energies proposes to design a multisensory diagnostic suite for measurements within elevated-pressure RDEs. This sensor will utilize tunable-laser absorption spectroscopy to measure temperature, pressure and H2O concentrations in the annulus of a rocket-RDE and background-oriented schlieren imaging system for flow density gradient imaging to provide time resolved information about the sho ...

  10. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...
