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. Hypersonic Experimental Aerothermoelastic Test (HEAT)

    SBC: GLOBAL AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: AF16AT24

    The Air Force is interested in developing technology that would enable long duration hypersonic flight with reusable aircraft. Hypersonic flow presents many design challenges that can be encapsulated into an aerothermoelastic problem, i.e., a complex dyn...

  2. Hypersonic Experimental Aerothermoelastic Test (HEAT)

    SBC: GLOBAL AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: AF16AT24

    The U.S. Air Force is interested in developing hypersonic vehicles including reusable transport aircraft, cruise missiles, and unmanned systems. Hypersonic flight regimes result in multifaceted and very difficult design challenges that can be encapsulated into an aerothermoelastic problem, which is a complex interaction of structural, thermal, and aerodynamic mechanisms. When a flexible structural ...

  3. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation

    SBC: COLDQUANTA, INC.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta is partnering with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combine Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF electrometer will ...

  4. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Multiple Sheet Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (MSFRS) will be developed, which enables a series of two-dimensional images to be rapidly obtained making up a volumetric image while suppressing background scattering from wind tunn ...

  5. Low-Defect GeSn and SiGeSn for Integrated High-Performance SWIR and MWIR Optoelectronics

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: AF16AT28

    Advanced imaging techniques and, novel intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) methods are of great interest to the U.S. Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, but associated high-costs of III-V and II-VI MWIR and SWIR materials prohibit their practical widespread deployment and integration with other optoelectronic devices. In this program, we intend to investigate ...

  6. Disposal of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam using Hydrodynamic Cavitation

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC.            Topic: AF17BT001

    The widespread use of Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) at DOD facilities for firefighting, training, and fire suppression systems has resulted in numerous contamination sites. The perfluoroalkyl (PFA) compounds used in the AFFF, such as perfluoroalkyl sulfonates (PFOS) and perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (PFOA) are extremely stable in the environment and have been shown to be resistant to typical ...

  7. Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

    SBC: QUANTUM APPLIED SCIENCE & RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF17BT002

    Because of rising demand for human analysts and more efficient processing of increasingly large and challenging amounts of intelligence, human limitations on mental workload, cognitive fatigue, and attentionor task engagement, need to be accurately monitored in real-time in order to provide sensitive detection of impaired cognitive states. It is a challenge to continuously monitor these cognitive ...

  8. Resilient Directional Mesh Enhanced Tactical Airborne Networks

    SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION            Topic: AF17BT003

    In this Phase II effort, FIRST RF, partnered with UCSD, will demonstrate array technology enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays. The system expands upon prior SBIR development programs by enabling additional simultaneous full duplex data links by utilizing a novel array topology and beam forming technology allowing for the maximized SWaP solution for the disa ...

  9. Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution

    SBC: FUSE INTEGRATION, INC.            Topic: AF17BT003

    Currently networks are not taking advantage of the inherent benefits of high multi-beam directional networking. For example, the current MADL implementation simply daisy chains the nodes in the network creating multiple single points of network failure (of course retaining self-healing properties.) The Fuse Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution (DCLNS) optimized architecture features a robus ...

  10. Closed-Loop Extracranial Activation using Reinforcement-learning (CLEAR)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: AF17BT002

    Increased workloads and operational pressures can degrade human analysts cognitive performance, jeopardizing their ability to safely and effectively carry out mission-critical tasks. To avoid overload and maximize the potential of human operators, a method for conducting real-time evaluation of cognitive state, combined with means to dynamically enhance performance, is required. Novel technologies ...
