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. Infrared Metamaterials for Emission Phase Control

    SBC: PLASMONICS INC            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...

  2. High frequency (HF) direction-finding (DF) system based on an array of high-Tc superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs)

    SBC: Out of the Fog Research LLC            Topic: AF10BT40

    ABSTRACT: In Phase II, we will fabricate a SQUID array antenna. We will develop cryopackaging and control electronics for these devices. We integrate the device onto a cryocooler and build a laboratory prototype. We will then have all of the building blocks to build a fieldable prototype in Phase III. BENEFIT: Military Application: Microwave Communication Systems for ISR. Commercial Application ...

  4. Optical Refrigeration for Dramatically Improved Cryogenic Technology

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: Optical refrigeration is currently the only demonstrated all-solid-state cryocooling technology. Optical cryocoolers are devices that use laser light to cool small crystal or glass cooling elements. The cooling element absorbs the laser light and reradiates it at higher energy, an example of anti-Stokes fluorescence. The difference between the energy of the outgoing and incoming light c ...

  8. Frequency agile THz detectors for multiplicative mixing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT26

    ABSTRACT: A system that operates at room temperature and that could scan for concealed weapons from standoff distances of >10 m would be a tremendous asset for US military homeland security personnel worldwide. THz imaging can, potentially, be used for this application, but it requires the development of a new class of THz detectors whereby the signal to noise ratios are improved significantly. ...

  9. All fiber-based high power Mid-IR precision frequency combs

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: AF08BT16

    ABSTRACT: Based on our success in developing the world first commercial 10 W femtosecond fiber laser system and our leading technology development in ultrashort pulsed fiber laser and nonlinear fiber optics, PolarOnyx proposes, for the first time, a compact all fiber based high power (>500 mW) mid-IR supercontinuum source (3-12 micron) to meet with the requirement of the AF solicitation. The lase ...

  10. Novel Algorithm/Hardware Partnerships for Real-Time Nonlinear Control

    SBC: Elissar, LLC            Topic: AF09BT06

    The growing complexity of future military systems demands the development of high-performance nonlinear control algorithms. The goal of this proposal is to develop a specially designed software/hardware architecture to enable real-time autonomous closed-loop control of nonlinear high-dimensional dynamical systems. Following the recent success of pseudospectral (PS) computational control methods in ...
