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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Plasmonic Metamaterial Approach to Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: PLASMONICS INC            Topic: AF17AT022

    As both the response speed and sensitivity of thermal imagers have improved significantly over recent years, new IRSP systems are needed to provide greater dynamic range and faster response speeds. Addressing these issues, as well as producing a cost effective and modular IRSP system will be critical for providing quality scene projection for the next generation of infrared imagers. To address the ...

  5. Extending Molecular Simulation to Grain Scale for Simulating Response of Energetic Material Under High Strain Rate and Shock Loading

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT023

    High Velocity Penetrator Weapons experience severe stress in terms of high frequency vibration and shock during launch, flight, and on impact. The extreme conditions have significant impact on the survivability of the weapon due to damage of the energetic material and fuze compartment. Molecular dynamics is often used to understand the effect of external shock on the material. However, molecular ...

  7. Coupled Multi-Physics Tool for Analysis of Structural Profile Disruption Effects of Aerovehicles

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT025

    High speed air vehicles, already operating at material strength performance limits, are at significant risk when subjected to additional localized heating from sources such as directed energy. This localized heating may result in material softening, pitting and burn through causing structural damage and alteration of the structural profile. This damage can disrupt the aerodynamic performance and ...

  8. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF17AT029

    The proliferation of commercial, visible and infrared wavelength laser systems is increasingly becoming an existential threat to our warfighters, which drives the need for further EO/IR sensor and eye protection development. Current fielded sensor protection is limited to fixed wavelength filters. Broadband filters designed to circumvent multi-wavelength laser threats are plagued by low transmitta ...

  9. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF16AT14

    The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to establish fundamental understanding of combustion-physical mechanisms leading to blowout, the critical evaluation of model limitations in predicting these blowout processes and the development of an improved combustion model to enable the prediction of lean blowout (LBO) in swirl-stabilized combustors. For this, high-resolution numerical simulati ...

  10. Experimentally Derived Scaling Laws from Spatiotemporally Resolved Measurements in High-Pressure Combustors

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF16AT15

    The objectives of this research effort are to experimentally derive the scaling laws up to 30 bar for key combustion species and temperature for reactions involving various hydrocarbon fuels in such a way so that the spatio-temporally resolved measurements would not be influenced by signal-degrading processes such as quenching, photolytic interference, Stark shift, and stimulated Raman. This build ...
