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.
SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: MDA12T001
The US Navy is moving towards a Single Sortie Detect to Engage (SSDTE) paradigm to implement in-stride minehunting and mine prosecution. Integrating in-stride Mine Search and Mine Prosecution functions is a key requirement to achieve the SSDTE paradigm. Mine Target Reacquisition between the mine search operations and mine prosecution phases poses a particular challenge, as planned mine prosecution ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: APTIMA INC Topic: N18AT003
As the complexity of threats and emerging warfare capabilities increase, so do the number of Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) and the corresponding training regimes. Instructors are increasingly in need of automated tools to enable training that scales with complexity. Aptima, Inc., and our partners, Aviation Systems Engineering Company, Inc. (ASEC) and the University of Southern Califor ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: APTIMA INC Topic: DHA18B001
Current cervical spine assessment methodologies are focused on subjective measures (i.e. pain reports) and range-of-motion (ROM) measures that only measure maximum head excursion and reach, but not dynamic motion. Due to report bias and existing incentiveSTTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency

Most standard-of-care tools and techniques for evaluating neck disorders are subjective, unreliable, and do not provide actionable information for providers, payers, and organizations to deliver efficient and effective care. This lack of objective neck heSTTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
SBC: LIBERATING TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: DHP16C007
Current prosthetic feet produce much less peak mechanical power than the able-bodied foot/ankle and release only about half of the mechanical energy generated during gait. This leads to higher energy expenditure among amputees as compared to able-bodied iSTTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
SBC: METIS DESIGN CORP Topic: N18BT031
Manufacturing of structural composites traditionally employs autoclaves to achieve high quality parts, including high fiber-volume-fractions and low porosity. A laminate comprised of stacked prepreg plies are cured under a vacuum in addition to ~7 bar of pressure to prevent formation of voids, particulalry in interlaminar (inter-sheet/ply) regions. However, manufacturing composites within an autoc ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC Topic: N18BT031
Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N18BT031
For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Decision Support for Operators of Fully Autonomous Systems using RESTORE: Robust Execution System for Trusted Operation in Relevant EnvironmentsSBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC Topic: N18BT032
SSCI and MIT (Prof. Julie Shah) propose to develop and test a system that provides real-time assurance and trust in decisions made by autonomous collaborating vehicles. The proposed system is referred to as the RESTORE and represents a decision support tool which facilitates decision making by the operator in cases when decisions by the Collaborative Autonomy (CA) system results in deviations from ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: N18BT033
Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes the design and implementation of the Target Recognition with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence (TRACE) system that incorporates classical model-based target classification and identification approaches with data-driven machine learning solutions to improve the target classification accuracy. The outcome of the TRACE systems is a set of machine lea ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
