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. Transition Metal Oxide Optical Switch

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: A09079

    We propose to test a new sputtering method, Biased Target Deposition (BTD), for growth of polycrystalline VO2 thin films. The BTD method has been shown to be more stable and flexible for reactive deposition than previously used techniques, and we test whether VO2 can be driven into different microstructures, hence properties, by varying growth conditions. We focus on the optically-driven insulator ...

  2. Tunnel Detection using MASINT Techniques

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: A09148

    McQ will build upon its extensive experience with MASINT unattended ground sensors and electronics systems to develop a portable sensor system that will detect, classify and provide location information for buried tunnels. We will first demonstrate the technical feasibility of using MASINT techniques to exploit both the signals associated with tunnel detection and the physics of propagation to det ...

  3. DISPENSER STRUCTURE

    SBC: Abaris            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS TO EXAMINE THE STRUCTURAL REQUIREMENTS OF A MUNITIONS DISPENSER, AND IDENTIFY COMPOSITE MATERIALS AND THEIR APPLICATION TO DESIGNS THAT WOULD REDUCE PARASITIC STRUCTURAL WEIGHT BY 30%. THERE ARE A VARIETY OF FIBERS, RESINS, AND MANUFACTURING PROCESSES THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR ACHIEVING SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT REDUCTION. AS THE PROPERTIES AND COSTS OF COMPLETED COMPONENTS VARYWITH MAN ...

  5. Embedded Training Techniques for Target Discrimination Systems

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N08209

    Complex systems such as the SPS-74(V) Periscope Detection Radar automatic target recognition system present difficult training challenges for enhancing and maintaining operator proficiency. Technical challenges arise from the nature of software automation. The most difficult recognition cases can usually be trained effectively only with actual sensor data. Keeping the proficiency training curren ...

  6. In situ learning for underwater object recognition

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: N091066

    Sea mines are a cost-effective method for hostile forces to attempt to neutralize assets of the U.S. Navy by limiting mobility and creating delay. Mine detection, classification and localization (DCL) is very challenging in littoral environments due to the high clutter, increased background, and dense multipath. 3 Phoenix, Inc. has developed an innovative approach for automatic target detection an ...

  7. Exercise Torpedo End-Of-Run (EOR) Global Positioning System (GPS) Locator

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N091056

    The US Navy seeks the development of a miniature transponder locator unit, capable of sustaining high shock loads that can be placed in both lightweight and heavyweight exercise torpedoes for rapid torpedo recovery. Currently, a considerable amount of time and resources is expended to visually search for the exercise torpedo after the end of run, and the solicitation aims to develop a system that ...

  8. Advanced Flight Deck Data and Voice Communications

    SBC: Adaptive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N091012

    Adaptive Technologies, Inc. (ATI) and Fortress Technologies have teamed to develop advances in flight deck data and voice communications for use by the Aviation Data Management and Control System (ADMACS) program. This unique challenge of providing operational, noise-free, voice-enabled data management in a flight deck environment, with wireless network integration to the existing ADMACS shipboard ...

  9. Low-cost device relevant Indium Gallium Nitride (InGaN) or Alternatives

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: SB082053

    The project aims to grow device-quality InxGa1-xN, an important semiconductor because the band gap can be shifted widely by varying x, using a new form of plasma sputtering, Biased-Target Deposition (BTD). The major objectives are to grow x > 0.05 material on sapphire at 600-800°C (standard) and 300-500°C (beneficially reduced) temperatures, and to characterize material quality via X-ray diffra ...

  10. Lightweight Virtualization to Detect, React, and Adapt to Cyber Attacks

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: OSD09IA3

    Many software defenses against reverse engineering, piracy, and tampering rely on disabling the software when such attacks are detected. The proposed research makes innovative use of proces-level software virtualization on a per-application basis to defeat such attacks without disabling the software. The virtualization technology keeps normal operational run time overhead low, invoking more expens ...
