The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Subspace Tracking and Manifold Learning Based Heterogeneous Data Fusion for Unexpected Event Discovery

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF16AT12

    We aim to develop data-driven heterogeneous data fusion approaches for unanticipated event/target detection, which will be more robust and immune to model mismatch problems encountered by model-based approaches. Considering the low intrinsic dimensionality of the sensor data, we propose several data-level fusion approaches based on some state-of-the-art dimensionality reduction techniques. For lin ...

  2. STAN: Scene and Target Analysis Network

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF18AT014

    The introduction of computer vision in precision-guided ammunition will potentially increase their targeting capabilities, in particular for moving targets such as tanks, vehicles and mobile command posts. EO/IR cameras offer a relatively inexpensive, low-SWaP payload solution which, combined with latest advances in SIMD hardware (GPUs), are finally starting to allow running sophisticated visual g ...

  3. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Adaptive optics (AO) system performance is hindered by the mechanical limits of the deformable mirror (DM), namely stroke limits, interactuator stroke limits, and mechanical resonance.The nature of the multi-in multi-out (MIMO) control system does not lend itself well to notch filters to combat the mechanical resonances, and the stroke limits introduce non-linearities to the system.The traditional ...

  4. Small Sample Size Semi-Supervised Feature Clustering for Detection and Classification of Objects and Activities in Still and Motion Multi-spectral Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT35

    Toyon Research Corp. and the Penn State Univ. propose research and development of innovative algorithms for classifying objects and activities observed in high-dimensional data extracted from multi-sensor motion imagery. The proposed algorithms include novel feature clustering techniques to enable effective characterization of intra-class and inter-class appearance variations in datasets containin ...

  5. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation (RADARS)

    SBC: COLDQUANTA, INC.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta, in partnership with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado at Boulder, proposes to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combines Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF elec ...

  8. ROBUST MOVING TARGET HANDOFF IN GPS-DENIED ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT34

    Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are increasingly seen as a cornerstone in developing the future Defense infrastructure and it is critical that they collaborate efficiently and execute complex missions in denied environments. Although great progress has been made in GPS-denied navigation, the target handoff problem in GPS-denied environments has not been extensively studied. In this problem, a trac ...

  9. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: MINERVA SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...

  10. Resilient Directional Mesh Enhanced Tactical Airborne Networks

    SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION            Topic: AF17BT003

    In this Phase II effort, FIRST RF, partnered with UCSD, will demonstrate array technology enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays. The system expands upon prior SBIR development programs by enabling additional simultaneous full duplex data links by utilizing a novel array topology and beam forming technology allowing for the maximized SWaP solution for the disa ...
