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. Video Retrieval Based on Language and Image Analysis

    SBC: Advance, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop practical video libraries allowing users to quickly find useful material. Commercial, home, or surveillance video programming captures information in multiple tracks: picture, sound, and closed captioning. Using multiple modalities cataloging information, visual information, and audio information is critical since no one track contains necessary information to identify clip ...

  2. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  3. Software reusability

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A major problem in reusability is the creation of components that can be reused in applications other than the application for which they were originally designed. Software reusability has long held out the unrealized promise of increased productivity. It is accepted that within product development, reusing of software components will greatly reduce time and thus save money. It is our belief that ...

  4. Rapid Target Modeling Through GET Inheritance Mechanism

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop a Genetic Evolution Target (GET) modeling methodology for rapid target model development and validation from limited initial sensory and technical data. Developed methodology will allow for an expansion of the initial signature database and extensive testing of ATR systems over a variety of realistic signatures and situations not seen so far. The metho ...

  5. Wrist Sensor for Warfighter Status Monitor

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A small, personnel, battlefield, fiber optic sensor for detection of heartbeat and respiration rates will be developed. This biosensor offers high sensitivity, simplicity of design, and low costs. The contractor will show the feasibility of a personnel biosensor which has the potential to signal fatigue, dehydration, stress, illness, injury, or sleep disorders which are detectable through low fr ...

  6. SMART SENSORS USING OPTICAL FIBER INTERCONNECTS AND DISTRIBUTED MEMS

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR program would develop practical methods for the interconnection, addressing and control of large numbers of distributed MEMS-based sensing and actuation elements using optical fiber multiplexing techniques. Such interconnected sensor/actuator arrays have immediate and long-term applications in the instrumentation and control of adaptive aircraft, spacecraft and hydrocraft structures, fl ...

  7. 2-D Ultrasound Scanning Probes for 3-D Medical Diagnostic Imaging

    SBC: Guided Therapy Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposal is twofold. The first is to investigate theoretically and experimentally acoustic, electrical, and geometric parameters of 1.5-D ultrasound transducer array. The modeling and simulations of the arrays of various geometry, center frequencies, and acoustic materials will be performed, analyzed and optimized. The optimization criteria will be the best achieva ...

  8. Design and Test of an Unmanned Vehicle Micro-Turbine Engine

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: N/A

    M-DOT proposes to: perform basic research, conduct trade studies that examine design options for a less-than five inch diameter low-cost expendable turbojet or turbofan engine for use on unmanned air vehicles, and generate a proposal that would detail the applicability of such a power system to unmanned air vehicles that are either in existence, under development or under consideration for future ...

  9. Design and Test of an Unmanned Vehicle Micro-Turbine Engine

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: N/A

    M-DOT proposes to design, fabricate and test a tiny gas turbine which will be configured as a turbojet. The design will be based on the aerodynamic flow path of M-DOT's DARPA-funded TPR80-1 turboprop engine which is currently under test. The engine as projected, will be approximately 1/5 scale, have a static thrust of 6.2 newtons (1.4 lbs), a maximum diameter less than 4.0 cm and approximate mas ...

  10. On-Chip Metrology for Total Chemical Analysis

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    A multi-manifold flow system integrated on a Chip, with valve-less switching of solvent flow between channels and electro-osmotic pumping of an aqueous solvent, if successfully developed has the potential of fundamentally changing the way chemical analysis is done. For this technology to become a practical reality, it is mandatory that fully integrated microsystems be developed. A critical compo ...
