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. Real-time Location of Targets in Cluttered Environments

    SBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: We propose development of an efficient physics-based computational capability for real-time radar location of targets in cluttered environments. Our effort will focus, in particular, on air traffic targets in static natural environments that include dynamic effects such as spinning wind turbines. The proposed methodology models radar signal scattering in cluttered environments on t ...

  2. Realistic State and Measurement Error Uncertainty Computation and Propagation for Space Surveillance and Reconnaissance

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT11

    Space surveillance is the component of space situational awareness focused on the detection of resident space objects (RSOs) and the use of multisource data to track and identify space objects. While the propagation of the states of RSOs has been investigated extensively over the last fifty years, the correct propagation of their covariance or the more general (non-Gaussian) probability distribut ...

  3. RAPID RECONSTITUTION FOR GROUND-BASED OPTICAL SSA CAPABILITY FOR GEO, HEO AND MEO

    SBC: J.T. McGraw and Associates, LLC            Topic: AF16AT05

    Commercially-derived telescope systems, consisting mostly of commercially available components assembled to optimally meet space surveillance goals, stand ready to temporarily replace, supplement and/or augment existing optical surveillance systems. In t...

  4. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: DATA FUSION & NEURAL NETWORKS, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The problem addressed in this effort is to automatically learn historical ephemeris space catalog time, position, and velocity entity track update error uncertainties (i.e., without track error covariances) and to automatically (e.g., without expert event labeling) produce: – unmodeled non-gravitational space catalog update flags – abnormal unmodeled catalog update flags with abnorma ...

  5. Radio Frequency (RF) Filter Tuning Element

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18AT015

    To meet the requirements of the AF18A-T015 solicitation, MaXentric and University of California San Diego are proposing the development of a low loss, high linearity capacitor. The tunable capacitor target is a compact integrated design, capable of a tuning range up to 4:1, with a minimum Q of 80 at 4 GHz, and handling up to 20W CW. During phase I, UCSD studied a novel varactor structure to improv ...

  6. Prototype for Rapid Reconstitution for Ground-based Space Situational Awareness Capability for Near-geosynchronous Objects

    SBC: DFM Engineering Inc            Topic: AF16AT05

    We propose to research the feasibility of rapidly reconstituting a ground based sensor system for space situational awareness with a large fraction of the capability of the GEODSS sensor system. This system can be deployed quickly to a GEODSS site where ...

  7. PRIME: PRimary Integration and Maturation of EGS

    SBC: THE DESIGN KNOWLEDGE COMPANY LLC            Topic: AF18BT012

    Legacy satellite command and control capabilities and their related telemetry operate in a largely stove piped framework. Satellites are still commanded, controlled, and communicated with their ground station in a specific constellation structure. Each ground station is unique to a given constellation and the communications and telemetry are aligned to the specific constellation, underscoring an o ...

  8. Power Electronics Thermal Interface (PETI) with Conductive Diamond Plating

    SBC: GLOBAL CIRCUIT INNOVATIONS INC            Topic: AF19BT001

    A growing number of electronic applications within the Air Force, such as devices for power conditioning and distribution, RF power amplification, and high power lasers have been identified for increased heat transfer requirements to maintain operational temperatures at acceptable levels while increasing the performance through higher power. However, this same target research that requires increas ...

  9. Portable Bioprinted Organoids for Physiological Monitoring

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF19AT002

    hazardous chemicals such as JP8, chromium, and byproducts of led-free frangible ammunition and to hazardous environments. Of the many dangers Airmen face, the hypoxia-like unexplained physiological events pilots face are some of the most dangerous and elusive. Current wearable sensors cannot decouple complex, interdependent in vivo response. We propose to develop (design, fabricate, test, and demo ...

  10. Porous Hybrid Composite for Enhanced Thermal Protection Systems (ComTPS)

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF10BT27

    ABSTRACT: The proposed research will demonstrate feasibility of a high temperature insulating, load bearing thermal protection system (TPS) using a hybrid composite technology. This program will incorporate a hierarchically porous ceramic core material in a sandwich structure with a conventional polymer matrix composite (PMC) and ceramic matrix composite (CMC) to fabricate an enhanced TPS. This m ...
