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. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface Em ...

  3. A Unique Focal Plane Array Detector for THz and MM Wave Imaging

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT33

    Detecting explosives and weapons under clothing or in hand carried packages, and imaging terrain and objects through fog and smoke are two high-priority needs that can be met using light in the Terahertz frequency range. However, to image concealed threats, and aid in navigation in fog and smoke, a practical, low cost THz camera is needed. Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) in collaboration with Re ...

  5. Bayesian Fusion of Heterogeneous Data for Unanticipated Event Detection

    SBC: METRON INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT12

    Metron, Inc. and Portland State University propose to design, develop, test and demonstrate algorithms that fuse heterogeneous sensor data at an information theoretic level and process these data as detection and tracking algorithms that can identify when new events or targets emerge that are not currently modeled. These algorithms have the potential to provide dramatic improvements in the capabil ...
