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. Multi-Modal Knowledge Acquisition from Documents

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: N10AT019

    Images with associated text are now available in vast quantities, and provide a rich resource for mining for the relationship between visual information and semantics encoded in language. In particular, the quantity of such data means that sophisticated machine learning approaches can be applied to determine effective models for objects, backgrounds, and scenes. Such understanding can then be used ...

  2. Complex Event Detection in Video and Communications

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: N10AT040

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase-I project will constitute design of algorithms, toolsets, and interfaces to detect and visualize complex events from video and communications data. Our proposed system would be based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) which will allow users to integrate services and data from multiple sources and operate in a networked environment. The key ...

  3. Graded-Composition Refractory Coatings for Protection of Cu-Rails for Electromagnetic Launchers

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: N10AT025

    The Navy is developing an electromagnetic (EM) launcher for long-range naval surface-fire-support. Severe operating conditions of the EM system place stringent requirements for materials, including high current and magnetic fields, high temperatures, contact with liquid metals, high stress/gouging from balloting contacts and high-speed-sliding electrical-contact with an Al armature. Engineered Coa ...

  4. An Advanced Undersea Lithium Ion Management System (U-LIMS)

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N10AT013

    Impact Technologies, in collaboration with Penn State Applied Research Laboratory, proposes to develop an advanced Battery Monitoring and Management System (BMMS) for lithium-ion battery packs that ensures adequate, safe, and reliable operation. This system will focus on real time diagnostics, prediction of catastrophic failure, and risk assessment for individual cells in high power applications. ...

  5. Magnetostrictive Vibration Energy Harvester (MAVEN)

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N10AT020

    Impact Technologies, in cooperation with Dr. Mohammed Daqaq from Clemson University, propose to develop a magnetostrictive materials based device for harvesting energy from mechanical vibration. The energy harvesting device will harness power from ship-hull vibrations in order to power sensing devices. This technology will be a key enabler for improved structural and machinery health management. K ...

  6. Advanced Software Tools for Lithium Ion Battery Risk Assessment (LIBRA)

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N10AT014

    Impact Technologies, in collaboration with the Georgia Tech Center for Innovative Fuel Cell and Battery Technologies, proposes to develop tools for Lithium Ion Battery Risk Assessment (LIBRA). These tools will allow the Navy to analyze proposed Li-Ion battery designs and assess the overall risk to the platform in the event of failure in a single cell. The tool will also predict the effects of a ca ...

  7. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N10AT012

    We propose to design a high average power Er:Fiber ultrafast laser system which is pumped at 14xxnm, and at the same time solve other problems related to ultrashort pulses in fiber lasers. The advantage of using 14xxnm pumping is the reduction of the standard quantum defect from 37% to 5%, thus greatly reducing the thermal load on the system, which makes it inherently more efficient. We also inten ...

  8. Using Stylistic Topic Models to Detect Deception Through Unusual Linguistic Activity

    SBC: KITWARE INC            Topic: N10AT029

    Analysts are faced with the challenge of sifting through enormous quantities of documents, blog posts, communications, etc. to find deceptive behaviors. We propose novel techniques for efficiently and automatically detecting deception on large data with high accuracy by using methodologies from both stylometry and topic modeling. This combined approach will learn models of authors and will detect ...

  9. A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel Capabilities

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N10AT033

    Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...

  10. Mathematically Rigorous Methods for Determining Software Quality

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP            Topic: N10AT035

    Current software development and testing methodologies are inadequate for validating software in mission-critical applications. As Dijstra famously stated: "testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence." When lives and national security is at stake, there is a need for mathematically rigorous techniques that can verify the absence of bugs. We propose to devel ...
