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. EX-SCAN: Autonomous Inspection System for Aircraft Surface Coatings

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT09

    Current methods for inspecting the external surfaces of low-observable (LO) aircraft are time consuming and error prone. Technology that can reduce inspection times and minimize human error will benefit the Air Force by increasing assessment reliability and aircraft availability while reducing maintenance costs. To address this need, Intelligent Automation (IAI) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU ...

  5. Passive Radiometry Based Aerial Navigation

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF15AT26

    ABSTRACT: The sensor system requirements for image based navigation that uses passive millimeter wave imaging radiometry will be established based on existing RelNav and AbsNav algorithms that were demonstrated to work in multi-modal imagery. Existing flight data will be used to simulate the PMMW imagery for these tests. A preliminary design of such a PMMW system will be created. Under Phase-II th ...

  7. High Performance and Novel Target Recognition Algorithm in the Sparse Measurement Space

    SBC: Applied Research LLC            Topic: AF15AT27

    ABSTRACT: Our main objective in this project is to propose a novel Structured Sparse Priors for Target Recognition (SSPTR) system and to demonstrate that discriminative applications such as data clustering or target detection, tracking, and classification can be solved effectively and directly on the compressed measurement domain without the need to recover the original data. Our proposed sparse-r ...

  8. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The U. S. Air Force needs turbulent combustion models that can be used to simulate combustion in actual propulsion systems at both design and off-design conditions, not models that are only useful for highly idealized problems. With this motivation in mind, Combustion Science & Engineering, Inc. and the Computational Combustion Lab at Georgia Tech plan to enhance current capabilities to ...

  9. Design, Reconfigure, and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: TIER 1 PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The proliferation of autonomous- and human-machine systems necessitates the creation of new tools for system design and evaluation. Key among these are simulation testbeds that support interactions between multiple warfighters and systems, and methods for creating and integrating intelligent agent models into simulation environments. We see a significant opportunity to advance the state ...

  10. Low Loss, High Average Power PM WDMs for Raman Fiber Lasers

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: AF13AT03

    We propose a new fiber WDM fabrication method for single mode high power fiber laser. Our new approach will enable kW operation for both single mode fiber WDM and PCF WDM. In Phase I, a proof of concept experiment has been demonstrated. In phase II, we will target at delivery of a reliable prototypes for both step index fiber WDM and PCF WDM.
