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. Machine-Learning Based Sensing and Waveform Adaptation for SDRs Operating in Congested and Contested Environment

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: A19CT005

    Unprecedented growth in demand of wireless devices has caused overcrowding of the spectrum. Modern Software Defined Radios (SDRs) have to provide satisfactory services while transmitting/receiving in congested and contested environment. In order to do that, complex learning algorithms have to be paired with capable, flexible and wideband hardware.Space Micro and its partner research institution, t ...

  2. Physical Monitoring Techniques to Improve Warfighter Performance

    SBC: SONALYSTS INC            Topic: A20BT008

    In the field, warfighters are exposed to a complex set of stressors. Increasingly heavier combat loads, extreme environmental conditions, and improper nutrition are a few examples. Unfortunately, the effects on their physical and cognitive performance are not well understood, which can negatively affect the decision-making processes causing tactical errors leading to operational or strategic conse ...

  3. Millimeter-wave MIMO Radar for UAS Tracking

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: A21CT009

    Small unmanned aerial systems (sUASs) are quickly emerging as low-cost attritable aerial platforms for hostile reconnaissance, targeting, weapon delivery, and other purposes. Unlike legacy air targets, small unmanned aerial systems fly at low altitude, are easily masked by terrain features, often fly at relatively low velocities that render many forms of Doppler and time/frequency radar exploitati ...

  7. Wideband RF Radomes Compatible with Conformal Antennas and Gun-Launched Hypersonic Environments

    SBC: FIRST RF CORPORATION            Topic: A21CT002

    Recent advancements in artillery, muzzle velocity, and post-launch propulsion technology have enabled gun-launched projectiles to travel faster and at longer ranges than ever before. To be most effective in flight and at range, the projectiles must incorporate RF sensors to enable advanced, mission-critical functionality. The RF sensors must also be able to survive and operate through extreme gun- ...

  8. An FMCW Radar based Cable Remaining Useful Life Estimator

    SBC: ALEX AND ALICE, INC.            Topic: A21CT013

    In this proposal, we propose an FMCW radar based cable remaining useful life (RUL) estimator to detect, locate, and classify cable faults, and estimate the cable RUL. The system includes three key elements - an FMCW radar, a cable degradation model, and a machine learning (ML) based data processing module. The FMCW radar transmits a chirp down to the cable through a lead cable and an impedance mat ...

  9. Transparent Highly Oriented Films for Ballistic Protection

    SBC: LaunchBay LLC            Topic: A21CT025

    Oriented polymer films such as those made of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) can offer high ballistic protection at low areal densities, however, their application is limited due to low optical transmittance and clarity. Hence, in this project, LaunchBay LLC will develop manufacturing process for a novel oriented film that provides not only superior ballistic perfo ...
