The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY21 is not expected to be complete until September, 2022.

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. IED neutralization from an airborne platform

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY IN PRACTICE LLC            Topic: DTRA182001

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency, DTRA, currently uses technologies capable of detecting IEDs using airborne sensors that are demonstrated as reliable. These systems are only used for detection purposes and are not capable of neutralizing the IED. Due to IEDs being located in remote, dangerous, and hostile locations, there is high casualty risk for personnel to manually neutralize the target by ...

  2. Ultra-short Pulsed Off-axis Digital Holography for 3D imaging of Aerosol Evolution

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182003

    This is a proposal to develop a unique, Ultrashort Pulsed Off-axis Digital Holography (USPODH) system, enabling the high frequency imaging of detailed 3D structures within aerosol fields under harsh thermodynamic conditions and high optical depths where ordinary imaging is essentially useless. Many powerful imaging methods have failed to provide this capability because noise from multiple scatteri ...

  3. A Compact and Fast Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Spectroscopy System for Aerosol Combustion

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: DTRA182003

    To fully understand the combustion dynamics when chemical warfare agents are detonated, fast time-scale diagnostics are needed. While computational modeling may provide insight into the different processes, experimental measurements are needed to verify and validate these models. Since the detonation or combustion of chemical agents can result in optically thick fireballs, innovative techniques mu ...

  4. Automated pattern recognition methods to identify nuclear explosions

    SBC: Acorn Science & Innovation, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182005

    Reliable automated pattern recognition in the current system is limited by excessive noise and clutter combined with insufficient and/or ambiguous features. Our team consisting of AcornSI and Leidos thus propose a multi-step approach based on the combined effects of improved detection, feature extraction, phase identification, and global association. A key innovation here is creating a new classif ...

  5. High Efficiency Cyclone Separator for Sub-micron Particle Concentration

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA182006

    The Radionuclide Aerosol Sampler and Analyzer (RASA) is a completely automated monitoring system that detects airborne radioactive particles and is one of the detection systems used in the U.S. and global International Monitoring System (IMS) of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) to detect nuclear detonations. Mainstream proposes develop a high-efficiency cyclone separa ...

  6. Engineering Perovskite Single Crystals for Gamma Spectrometry

    SBC: CHEMELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: DTRA182007

    In this project, we propose to identify and examine solution growth approaches for engineering perovskite single crystal for gamma spectrometry in a hand-held sensor format. We will demonstrate that the solution growth approach is able to produce perovskite single crystal in sufficient volume and quality to yield a detector crystal whose utilization presents no inherent environmental, health, or s ...

  7. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: LUCID CIRCUIT, INC.            Topic: DTRA162006

    With the advent of high-density low-power sub-20nm technology processes and circuits with tens-of-billions of transistors, radiation-induced single-event effects present a new set of design challenges for terrestrial applications. Developing reliable single-event effect resilient microelectronics in these modern technology nodes is a resource and time-intensive endeavor that further requires valid ...

  8. Data-Driven Technology Discovery Methodologies

    SBC: Semandex Networks Inc.            Topic: DTRA162005

    During the Phase I effort, Semandex Networks and its team developed a prototype capability to detect trends in research publications by automatically identifying emerging concepts within the data. The implemented capability provides insights into past and

  9. Tools for Memory Hierarchy Optimization on Pre-Exascale HPC Architectures

    SBC: EP ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: DTRA172003

    DTRA uses High Fidelity Computer Codes (HFCC) to investigate weapon effects and techniques for countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). End-to-end HFCC simulations in support of the DTRA Agent Defeat Warfighter Capability will require calculations including multiple phenomena that occur in vastly different time scales (µ-sec to hours). As DTRA becomes increasingly reliant on computational mo ...

  10. Application of Ultra-Low Cost Differential Pressure Sensors to the Large N Acoustic Sensor Problem

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172001

    TDA Research, Inc. (TDA), designed, built, and tested a dense array of 100 very low cost infrasonic sensors. Due to their low cost (1/100x-1/10x the cost of other infrasound sensors), they can be economically deployed in very large numbers; such large arrays can gather more information than a few expensive sensors. They are sensitive from 0.1 Hz - 100 Hz down to 0.08 Pa. We tested the sensors in s ...
