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. Virtual Reality for Multi-INT Deep Learning (VR-MDL)

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEMS LABORATORIES INC            Topic: AF19AT010

    A key goal stated in the United States Air Force Science and Technology Strategy for 2030 and Beyond is to “Increase the speed of battlespace understanding and decision-making to act faster than any adversary.” In this project, ISL and Ohio University (ISL-OU) will build on the success of Phase I and deliver a new game-changing capability for reliably performing complex radio frequency, multi- ...

  2. Mid-Infrared Laser Absorption Spectroscopy for Multi-Parameter Rotating Detonation Analysis

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF19AT011

    New, innovative laser spectroscopy technology will be developed for performance quantification and combustion characterization in a Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE). The effort will push the state of the art in tunable laser absorption spectroscopy to enable fast time response diagnostics of the extreme pressure and temperature conditions of an RDRE.

  3. Reconfigurable/Cognitive Optical Communications

    SBC: VULCAN WIRELESS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT010

    As the number of optical communication terminals proliferate there will be a need to have these terminals interoperate.  In the past, optical terminals were designed with a single purpose in mind.  New space constellations are requiring non-RF crosslink solutions.  It is expected that there will be a large number of both commercial and military systems providing crosslinks and space to earth li ...

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

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Laser guide stars (LGS) are artificial sources of light produced by laser-induced fluorescence from sodium atoms in the mesosphere between 85 km and 100 km altitude. The fluorescence can be detected on the ground with a telescope and used as a reference for compensating atmospheric aberrations in astronomical and space observations in conjunction with an adaptive optics system. Sodium LGS are vita ...

  5. Optimization of Fatigue Test Signal Compression Using The Wavelet Transform

    SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N18BT029

    ATA Engineering has developed a wavelet-based damage squeezing methodology for generating optimally compressed fatigue test signals that produce an equivalent amount of fatigue damage in a predictably reduced amount of time compared to the baseline (uncompressed) signals. Fatigue-critical signal characteristics (e.g., magnitude, phase, frequency, and sequencing relationships) are identified in the ...

  6. Adaptive Optics for Nonlinear Atmospheric Propagation of Laser Pulses

    SBC: ADVANCED SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N17AT024

    Filamentation of ultra-short laser pulse propagation in non-linear media offers significant potentials allowing to address numerous problems in military and commercial sectors. However, practical implementation of this requires an ability to control the USLP at its propagation through inhomogeneous media, like turbulent atmosphere. On the basis of our approach for combating turbulence effects on p ...

  7. Pathogen Classification Tool (PACT)

    SBC: STOTTLER HENKE ASSOCIATES, INC            Topic: ST18C002

    Stottler Henke proposes PACT to address the threat posed by unknown/novel bacteria. Stottler Henke’s solution leverages AI/ML technologies to assess the pathogenic potential of unknown/novel bacteria for DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office. Threat assessment is inferred from phenotype as characterized by a series of assays developed by Harvard University as part of DARPA’s Friend or Foe p ...

  8. Ultra-high gain solar-blind APD arrays based on AlGaN

    SBC: ADROIT MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: ST18C003

    The objective of this project is to develop a compact and efficient avalanche photodiode (APD), operating between 210-260 nm, for implementation in the next generation bio-chem-detectors. The proposed detectors will be based on the AlGaN materials system and will be solar blind, highly sensitive, smaller, less expensive, and more robust than current UV detectors. Development of such APDs will enab ...

  9. Innovative Processing Techniques for Additive Manufacture of 7000 Series Aluminum Alloy Components

    SBC: SENSIGMA LLC            Topic: N18AT005

    Naval aircraft components are routinely made of 7000 series aluminum alloys due to their strength, weight and fatigue properties. Present Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes fall short of producing 7000 series Al alloys successfully due to lack of porosity, and thermal and composition control. In-situ methods implemented to date largely only yield information about the component surface and othe ...

  10. Conjugate heat transfer for LES of gas turbine engines

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N19BT027

    Current design tools for gas turbine engines invoke a variety of simplifying assumptions to estimate heat transfer to solid/metal engine components (e.g., isothermal boundary conditions). These approximations are often not valid, result in inaccurate predictions of heat transfer, and ultimately compromise the thermal integrity of propulsion and power systems. Wall-modeled large eddy simulation (WM ...
