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. Incremental Learning for Robot Sensing and Control

    SBC: Net-Scale Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A09AT030

    This proposal addresses key open challenges identified during the LAGR program for the practical use of adaptive, vision-based robot navigation in commercial settings. First, the adaptive vision system learns quickly, but forgets as quickly. This will be addressed by using an ensemble of "expert" classifiers, each of which specializes for a particular environment and can be quickly activated when ...

  2. Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT009

    The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...

  3. Low Cost Fabrication of Armor Protection Systems for Military Tactical Vehicles

    SBC: NexGen Composites LLC            Topic: A13AT021

    There is a great need and opportunity to develop lower cost manufacturing process for ceramic tile-based composite armor system for military tactical vehicles. The threat levels encountered by the military tactical vehicles, particularly due to the Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) pose an ever-increasing need for more lightweight and effective vehicle armor system at an affordable cost. A low-co ...

  5. MEMS based thermopile infrared detector array for chemical and biological sensing

    SBC: New Jersey Microsystems, Inc.            Topic: A10AT004

    New Jersey Microsystems proposes to develop an economical thermopile array with sensitivity maximum in the long wave infrared region (LWIR). Current infrared detectors are too expensive to be widely deployed in large numbers. The proposed MEMS technology is simpler, more manufacturable, and therefore less expensive than bolometer and ferroelectric devices with competitive D* sensitivity. The th ...

  6. Metasurface Enhanced Solar Blind Ultraviolet Photodetector

    SBC: PHOEBUS OPTOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: A13AT002

    This project will develop plasmonic films that perform the dual functions of optical filtering and electrical conduction for solar-blind ultraviolet radiation (UV) detectors. Two types of plasmonic structures will be investigated, namely nano-hole arrays in an aluminum film atop UV radiation detecting semiconductors. These two similar plasmonic structures support different types of surface plasm ...

  7. Multifunctional Textile Coating of Military Fabrics

    SBC: MATERIALS MODIFICATIONS INC            Topic: A13AT020

    This STTR Phase I project will develop a novel multifunctional coating to combat a wide range of threats in a variety of complex situations for the warfighter. Military combat uniforms currently use NYCO fabrics (Nylon/cotton 50/50). The US Army is seeking new coating technologies that will impart multifunctional properties such as antistatic, conductive, flame resistance, improved abrasion resis ...

  8. Multi-input Multi-output Synthetic Aperture Radar with Collocated Antennas

    SBC: TRIDENT SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: A10AT005

    The enormous effort devoted to the data acquisition, signal processing, and automatic recognition of stationary targets has resulted in a generation of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems that are meeting the challenge of real-world conditions. However, in a practical battlefield, moving targets may pose a more severe threat than stationary targets. Many high value targets are only vulnerable w ...

  10. Narrowband Perfect Absorber for Infrared Sensing

    SBC: SRICO INC            Topic: A12aT023

    SRICO proposes to combine metamaterial narrowband absorbers and SRICO-proprietary thin film lithium tantalate (TFLT) pyroelectric thermal detectors to produce ultra low cost, size, weight and power (SWaP) room temperature stand-off chemical sensors. Metamaterial narrowband absorber elements will be integrated into the TFLT pyroelectric detector process to provide conversion of radiation to heat, w ...
