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. Development lightmap rendering technology to advance infrared simulation capabilities for training applications

    SBC: CORNERSTONE SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: AF17AT012

    Recent technology advances have enabled the simulation community to achieve greater realism in virtual training environments. As new methods for synthetic image generation are developed, the lack of readily available supporting data to populate these specialized techniques limits their implementation. Currently the capability is not available to efficiently generate enhanced temporal energy maps ...

  2. A LevelSet / XFEM Approach for Topology Optimization of Thermally Loaded Structures

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    The automotive and aerospace industries use topology optimization to minimize structural weight while satisfying functional constraints. However, the industry-standard fictitious material or density approach has been less effective when applied to physics beyond simple structural mechanics. Known issues include: failed numerical convergence or so-called gray material in computed optimal designs, n ...

  3. Fiber-Coupled Hyperspectral Thermal LWIR Imaging Sensor Suite for Combustion System Diagnostics

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF17AT016

    The objective of the proposed Phase-I effort by Spectral Energies LLC is to design and develop a fiber-coupled hyperspectral LWIR thermal imaging sensor suite for temperature measurements in practical combustors. The proposed sensor suite will be capable of performing spectrally resolved imaging to achieve accurate temperature measurements in practical gas-turbine engines while resolving optical i ...

  4. Spiral: A Framework for Chaotic Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT017

    Computational design is encountering barriers due to chaotic dynamics. The characteristic unpredictability, aperiodicity, and sensitivity to initial conditions in chaotic dynamics requires computationally costly time-dependent analysis. Computationally costly analysis precludes sampling-based optimization, indicating that chaotic systems would significantly benefit from gradient-based optimization ...

  6. Shear Stabilization Based Framework for the Failure Testing and Analysis of HSCs

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: AF17AT019

    This program will develop an engineering framework for the design and failure analysis of high strain composite (HSC) laminates. The program will first test several HSC laminates to generate a statistically significant dataset for flexural strength. Testing will be performed for short and long term stowage conditions. Initial and ultimate failure modes will be identified and documented using sever ...

  7. KHz-MHz Rate Laser-Based Tracking of Particles and Product Gases for Multiphase Blast

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF17AT020

    The overall goal of the proposed research program is to design a ruggedized imaging system capable of visualization and analysis of the particle field and product gases in a multiphase blast. This will be accomplished by combining kHz-MHz-rate burst-mode laser technology with tomographic particle image velocimetry (PIV) and new nonlinear particle tracking methods to resolve dense particle fields. ...

  8. High speed, multispectral, linear polarization display

    SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF17AT021

    Several birds and insects use sky features such as sun, moon or star positions, sky polarization and even forest canopy structures to navigate and maintain heading in day or night conditions. To better understand this ability in insects, a sky projector is needed to allow researchers to project realistic sky images to the insect so that insect response can be studied. Polaris proposes to partner ...

  9. Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) for characterizing invertebrate vision

    SBC: BOULDER NONLINEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF17AT021

    In partnership with the Strausfeld Lab at the University of Arizona, BNS proposes to develop an Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) based on our previous VIS/NIR Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP) design. Using BNS-developed liquid crystal (LC) spatial light modulators (SLMs), this display will provide high-speed multispectral wide-field visual stimulus to invertebrates ov ...

  10. Plasmonic Metamaterial Approach to Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: TRUVENTIC LLC            Topic: AF17AT022

    Truventic proposes a novel MEMS-based plasmonic infrared scene projector to support hardware-in-the-loop testing of missile seekers, forward looking IR cameras (FLIR), counter measure simulation and tracking systems. The approach avoids known limitations of resistive arrays and provides high dynamic range, unprecedented high apparent temperature, high modulation rates, high pixel to pixel contrast ...
