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. Labeless, Reagentless, Biosensor

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    The preponderance of biosensors under development today rely on labeling reagents such as fluorescent, radioisotopic or enzymatic tags. As a result, the added complexity of these reagents and their incorporation into the detection system has resulted in designs that are difficult to implement or that require significant sample preparation steps before introduction into the detection instrument. ...

  2. Low Cost Free-Flight Scramjet Test Technique

    SBC: GASL, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of a low-cost, near term approach to flight testing a hypersonic, storable fuel, scramjet engine using ballistic range technology is proposed. Flight-testing is easily the most expensive component of the triad of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), ground-testing and flight-testing needed to develop and demonstrate sustained and accelerating airbreathing flight at hypersonic speeds. ...

  3. Synthetic Muscle Effector for Micro-Robotic Taggant Platforms

    SBC: Integrated Electronic            Topic: N/A

    The internet of this work is to develop an effector for a micro-robotic taggant sensor platform. The effector is the system component which enables motion and allows the platforms to manipulate its environment. It will be capable of propelling the entire platform and physically attaching it to other objects. The effector is configured as a synthetic muscle which is capable of large amplitude de ...

  4. Embedded, Real-Time Block-Floating-Point Pre-Processing for UHF/VHF Synthetic Aperture Radar

    SBC: INTEGRATED SENSORS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a critical need for an all weather capability to detect and classify military targets concealed in foliage and/or camouflage. Recent advances in high resolutions synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology, operating at low frequencies (VHF-UHF), have demonstrated significant capability for detection and classification of such targets. However, one of the primary difficulties is the signi ...

  5. Moving Target Indication Radar Architectures for Tactical Targets in Foliage

    SBC: INTEGRATED SENSORS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel architecture employing optimized space-time-frequency processing to meet the seemingly disparate requirements imposed by FOPEN SAR and MTI is presented. Two primary techniques are discussed: (a) simultaneous, long-dwell multibeam receive processing and (b) wideband, udorandomly hopped frequency employ multiple, wideband antenna elements each wi ...

  6. RNA Detector-Molecule Methodology for Microorganism Biodetectors

    SBC: Invitro Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current geopolitical strategies require effective warfare countermeasures to protect U.S. forces against biological and chemical threats. Today's molecular biology and immunological detection technologies cannot be used to produce automated biodetectors useable in the battlefield. New, improved detection technologies are needed to minimize the impact of chemical and biological weapons on Army per ...

  7. FUNCTIONAL INTEGRAL FORMULATION OF THREAT AVOIDANCE MISSION PLANNING

    SBC: A & D Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN COMPUTATION TECHNIQUES SUCH AS PARALLEL PROCESSING ARE WELL-SUITED FOR THE SOLUTION OF SUCH PROBLEMS AS THE SIMULTANEOUS GLOBAL EXTREMIZATION OF MULTIPLE VARIABLES IN A COMPLEX, NONLINEAR, PROBABILISTIC STATE SPACE. HOWEVER, THE USE OF THESE TECHNIQUES TO SOLVE A GIVEN PROBLEM REQUIRES THAT IT FIRST BE FORMULATED IN THESE TERMS. CURRENTLY, THREAT-AVOIDANCE MISSION PLANNING IS APPROACHED AS ...

  8. ATTENTION IN ACTIVE VISION

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN ATTENTION MECHANISM CAN INFLUENCE SYSTEM BEHAVIOR AND PERFORMANCE ONLY TO THE EXTENT IN WHICH SYSTEM RESOURCES ARE ALLOCATABLE. A KEY VISUAL SYSTEM RESOURCE IS ACUITY, AND YET THIS RESOURCE IS FIXED IN CONVENTIONAL UNIFORM ACUITY MACHINE VISION. FEATURES TO BE RESOLVED BY ACTIVE VISION ARE TYPICALLY LOCALIZED WITHIN THE FOV. UNIFORM SAMPLING WITHIN THE FOV IS THUS INAPPROPRIATE; REGIONS WITH LI ...

  10. QUASI-OPTICAL INJECTION LOCKING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Avoca Laboratorytories            Topic: N/A

    IN A QUASI-OPTICAL OSCILLATOR ARRAY THE OUTPUT OF A LARGE NUMBER OF OSCILLATORS ARE COMBINED COHERENTLY WITH GOOD EFFICIENCY TO PRODUCE HIGH POWERS AT MILLIMETER-WARE FREQUENCIES. BY PLACING THE ARRAY IN A FABRY-PEROT RESONATOR, HIGH QUALITY FACTORS CAN BE ACHIEVED. TO FURTHER IMPROVE THE STABILITY OF THE OUTPUT SIGNAL, AN EXTERNAL LOCKING SIGNAL CAN BE USED. THE LOCKING SIGNAL PREVENTS THE ARRAY' ...
