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. MEMS Adaptive Optics Enhancement of Quantum Entanglement for Secure Communication through the Atmosphere

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF06T030

    The proposed effort develops the understanding required to assess the utility of using a MEMS device to prepare the required optical fields that not only facilitate quantum entanglement, but also maintain a sufficient level of quantum entanglement for propagation through an aberrating medium such as the atmosphere. In addition a conceptual design of an experiment that is appropriate to further th ...

  2. High-Power Millimeter-Wave Micro-Sources for Communications & Radar Dominance

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF06T022

    The proposed effort is to evaluate the feasibility of a W-band sheet-beam vacuum electronic device that can provide up to 1 kW of peak RF power at a minimum efficiency of 20%. Key elements of this effort are on the generation and transport of the sheet beam and its interaction with the RF circuit. The potential of employing a depressed collector to improve overall efficiency will also be investiga ...

  3. Low Power MEMS Retroreflectors for Optical Communications

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: A06T005

    This proposal describes a new communication device that can provide information from remote sensors through modulated retro-reflection using an active optical mirror. Through the integration of optical micro-electromechanical (MEMS) devices, high speed, low power electronics, and high precision corner cubes the project team will be able to demonstrate a modulating retro-reflector that can transmi ...

  4. 2-D 2-Color Laser Spot Array Generation for Quantum Computing Applications:Doppler-free Acousto-Optic Multi-beam Scanners to Address and Trap Atom Arr

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: A06T010

    We propose to develop and fabricate an optical scanner required to address a 2-D array of trapped Rubidium atomic qubits with two lasers simultaneously. One of the most scalable approaches to quantum information processing (QIP) is Optical addressing of arrays of trapped atoms. This is done with focused spots using tuned lasers which program initial states and implement 2-quibt gates. High spatial ...

  5. Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Rapid Maneuvering of Space Assets

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: AF06T001

    Busek Co. Inc. and Stanford University propose to jointly develop and test a high power plasma propulsion concept called the Coaxial High EnerGy (CHENG) thruster. This high efficiency (> 85%) pulsed system will be capable of average thrust levels commensurate to chemical propulsion (10^4 N/m^2), but with an Isp comparable to electrostatic propulsion (4000-50,000 s). Both thrust and Isp will be va ...

  6. A High Current Microfabricated Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Array with Ballasting

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: AF06T018

    High current density carbon nanotube-based field emission arrays with uniform emission will be developed under this program. Working in conjunction with MIT, microfabrication techniques will be used to produce high density arrays of CNT emitters on substrates which incorporate feedback to ensure uniformity of emission between emitters. The feedback techniques employed will minimize thermal effec ...

  8. Enhancing IPB with Representations of Meta-information (EPROM)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T031

    Modern military operations increasingly require decision-makers to reason predicatively about adversary actions and the battlespace environment – a task made more challenging due to meta-information (i.e., qualities of information such as uncertainty or staleness). Understanding the role of meta-information in reasoning about intelligence and developing methods for effectively portraying it ha ...

  9. Advanced System of Systems Design Capability

    SBC: CHESAPEAKE MARINE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: N06T016

    Chesapeake Marine Technology, with suncontractors Anteon Proteus Engineering and the Georgia Institute of Technology, is proposing to demonstrate the feasibility of a ship-centric design tool that can be used to evaluate design trade-offs and optimize ship characteristics, with the ship considered to be one "System" in a System of Systems (SoS)environment. The proposed work is based on modifying ...

  10. Navy Applications of 4th Generation Deeply Coupled Computing Architectures

    SBC: CPU TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N06T005

    Warfare is changing; there is a need for airborne and space-based sensor systems to detect small, highly maneuverable targets against a strong clutter background in the presence of jamming. Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) is a new signal processing technique for advanced radar systems that allows for performance enhancements over conventional approaches. Current power, weight, and size cons ...
