The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

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.

  1. Passive multi-view, multi-channel detection of highly obscured targets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA04001

    The goal of this Phase I SBIR is to define a set of algorithms that will detect and characterize static man-made objects highly obscured by foliage within multi-view, multi-channel optical data collected passively from UAVs or other aerial platforms. The proposed algorithm stream will be constructed so as to comprehend and mitigate real-world interfering effects such as clouds, smoke and haze. Dur ...

  2. Automated Rational Design of Antibodies

    SBC: BIOREN            Topic: CBD04105

    Bioren's technology provides an efficient, automated, in vitro system to generate and optimize antibodies and antibody fragments through a rational, hypothesis-driven approach. Bioren's patented technology is based on synthetic oligonucleotide chemistry to create defined antibody mutations. Hypotheses regarding the impact of a specific amino acid's side-chain chemistry within the antigen binding ...

  3. Polyamidoamine-Organosilicon Dendrimer Coatings for Vapor Phase Cyanide Removal

    SBC: DENDRITECH, INC            Topic: CBD04301

    Since 1993, ASZM-TEDA carbon has been the standard filtration material used by the U.S. military for protection against nerve, blister and blood agents, and other maliciously delivered air contaminants. Although ASZM-TEDA effectively removes these contaminants, alternative air filtration media are sought to ameliorate bulky, unwieldy designs necessitated by current technology. Additional improveme ...

  4. Integrated Microfiltration Filter and Pump for Portable Water Decontamination System

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: CBD04304

    Light-weight, high-performance subcomponents, particularly filters and pumps, are needed to make a portable water purifier that can produce clean water from any source. At present, some of the principal problems that hamper this effort include the heavy weight of the pumps and their motors and the large size and fouling rate of pre-treatment filters. These problems may be overcome using Los Gato ...

  5. Pathogen Bioprocessor

    SBC: MICROCHIP BIOTECHNOLOGIES            Topic: CBD04106

    The threat of bioterrorism has increased the demand for advanced technologies to rapidly and accurately detect and identify numerous pathogens at the species and strain level in air, water, food and other matrices. Advanced automated instrumentation with low operating costs that can be rapidly adaptable to new pathogens or agents is required. This proposal describes rapid application of microflu ...

  6. Processing Large Volume Samples Using a Silicon Pillar Chip

    SBC: MICROFLUIDIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: CBD04106

    PCR and antibody-based devices are currently the primary platforms for bioagent detection. PCR offers high sensitivity and specificity, but has limited effectiveness for toxins (detects residual DNA, if any, in toxin preparations) and requires thermal cycling equipment, extensive sample preparation, and complex reagents. Antibodies, which utilize relatively simple chemistry, are effective for bo ...

  7. CW Indicating Chromophore for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: CBD04103

    Nomadics is currently working with a novel chemical weapon indicating chromophore (CWIC) that can make CW agent contamination literally glow in the dark. Developed by Professor Tim Swager at MIT, CWICs will allow equipment to be quickly and easily examined to show any areas of contamination, making targeted decontamination manageable. Nomadics' experience in developing remarkably sensitive and s ...

  8. Reactive Fluorescent Sensors for Detecting CW Agents at Sub-Chronic Levels

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: CBD04102

    None of the current chemical warfare (CW) agent sensors or field test kits has sufficient sensitivity to detect nerve and blister agents at allowable exposure level (AEL) concentrations. Thanks to a remarkable chromophore developed by Professor Timothy Swager at MIT, Nomadics believes that we can achieve these detection levels in a small, low-cost sensor. Recently, Nomadics has demonstrated an e ...

  9. Remote Infrared Nanostructured Adsorber-Based Chemical Agent Monitor

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: CBD04307

    To address the Chemical And Biological Defense Program request for an inexpensive, reusable, stand-alone, remote-signaling point detector for sensing chemical warfare agents (CWAs), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Remote Infrared Nanostructured Adsorber-Based Chemical Agent Monitor (RINACAM). In RINACAM broadband infrared radiation from a solid-state emitter is coupled ...

  10. Passive Chemical/Biological Protection for Crew Tents

    SBC: VERTIGO, INC.            Topic: CBD04111

    Current collective protection systems are large, heavy and expensive, and involve an unacceptable logistics burden when applied to smaller systems that are lightweight and easy to use for one to five persons. Certain elements exist that may apply to smaller crew tents with passive protection systems. Some of these come from research for individual protection systems, others from collective prote ...
