The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY24 is not expected to be complete until March, 2025.

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.

The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.

  1. Unified Bayesian Multisensor-Multitarget Sensor Management for BMD

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: N/A

    "Multisensor-multitarget sensor management presents amajor theoretical and practical challenge for ballistic missile detection,tracking, and discrimination. A common approach is to assemble a patchworkof heuristic "bottom up'' techniques---e.g., loosely integrating manydistinct algorithms, each of which addresses some specific part of theproblem (detection, tracking, sensor cueing, allocating and ...

  2. Unified Bayesian Cluster Target Tracking and Discrimination

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: N/A

    "Most single- and multi-target tracking algorithms are designed to track point targets.However, in many real-world applications the targets of interest are not point targets butEXTENDED TARGETS and GROUP TARGETS, e.g. missile re-entry clusters.Under this effort we propose a systematic, fully probabilistic, and theoretically rigorousapproach to cluster target tracking and discrimination. Our approa ...

  4. Uncooled Infrared Detectors Based on Carbon Nanotubes, BMDO/ 02-003E

    SBC: EMITECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Emitech, Inc. proposes an innovative approach aimed at the development of carbon nanotube infrared detectors capable of operating at room temperatures in the wavelength range of 1.5-14 mm. This new concept is based on the effect of reduced electron-phononcoupling in quasi one-dimensional carbon nanotubes (CNTs), which considerably suppress the thermal noise and enables higher detector operational ...

  10. SURFACE MORPHOLOGY OF SILICON ON INSULATOR FILMS PREPARED BY ZONE-MELTING RECRYSTALLIZATION

    SBC: Kopin Corporation            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT TECHNIQUES TO IMPROVE SURFACE MORPHOLOGY IN SILICON ON INSULATOR (SOI) WAFERS PREPARED BY ZONE MELTING RECRYSTALLIZATION (ZMR). THE THREE AREAS OF PRIMARY IMPORTANCE IN IMPROVING THE SURFACE MORPHOLOGY OF ZMR PROCESSED WAFERS ARE: SLIP, BOW AND WARP, AND SURFACE SMOOTHNESS. SLIP IS CAUSED BY THERMALLY INDUCED STRESS THAT RESULTS FROM THE TEMPERATURE GRADIENT IN THE MELT ZON ...
