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. INTELLIGENT DRIVERS USING OPTICAL SENSING

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: ST061009

    Science Research Laboratory (SRL) and the Penn State Electro-Optics Center (PSU) propose to develop intelligent laser diode driver technology, incorporating optical diagnostics, that extends the operating lifetime of laser diode arrays by an order of magnitude. Random perturbations of temperature or current density during operation of a laser diode array can lead to thermal runaway and the formati ...

  2. Low Power Retroreflectors for Optical Communications

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A06T005

    Optical retro-reflectors have been used for communications for many years. The approach has many advantages, when one terminal has limited power, space, weight, and a low cost as requirements. The major limitation for “Retro-Comms” has been that the modulator consumes too much power at higher modulation rates. What we propose is to reduce the power, size, weight and cost of the Retro-Modula ...

  3. Acoustic Pattern Recognition for Security Breaching Noise Detection

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N06T036

    A proposed acoustic pattern recognition system will be based around an array of acoustic sensors to allow localization of sound events and cancellation of background noise. The number of sensors could be adjusted to vary the coverage area depending on the site. The measured signals will provide the input to a sophisticated signal processing algorithm that will separate the acoustic signals into ...

  4. A lightweight infrastructure for detection and mitigation of insider threats in distributed environments

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: MDA06T009

    The insider threat remains one of the most difficult to detect -- left alone to mitigate -- threats against information systems. The overall objective of the effort (Phase I and Phase II) is to produce and prototype a Distributed Insider Threat Detection System (DITDS) for distributed environments, capable of identifying and quantifying emerging insider threats against the network, allowing for t ...

  5. Aided Navigation: Theory and Applications for Sensors and Architectures

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF06T032

    The coupling of GPS and INS is often characterized as loose, tight, or ultra-tight depending on the nature of the GPS input to the navigation filter. Thus, considering the challenge of precision navigation without GPS, this project will test and validate the coupling of sensor (EO, IR) information such as ego-motion and position updates similar to the coupling of a GPS and INS system. This proje ...

  6. Viscous Drag Reduction Using Hydrophobic Surface

    SBC: Seashell Technology LLC            Topic: N06T024

    It has been shown that hydrophobic surfaces can reduce skin-friction drag in micro-fluidic devices. During Phase I research, we will fabricate and test a high performance durable hydrophobic surface coating created by a simple, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly method. This coating could have significant effects on skin-friction drag reduction and/or transition delay in boundary layers. ...

  7. Security Escorts for Not-Yet-Trusted Software

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD06SP2

    With the rapid release of new software applications, builds and patches for existing applications, and increased mobility of software across networks, more of our systems will run software applications that may not have a full pedigree of evaluation and testing to ensure that they are free from exploits and malware. Additionally, any previous certifications are invalidated at the first update. H ...

  8. High resolution multispectral imaging with plasmon lensing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T006

    It is desirable to make high resolution imagers that simultaneously acquire multispectral information from the same spatial locations; doing so enables a number of target detection and tracking applications. Currently, image resolution is limited by the pixel pitch which cannot be reduced below optical diffraction and carrier diffusion limited values, and by the need to have different pixels resp ...

  9. Advanced Radar Data Fusion

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: MDA06T003

    The TSC team proposes to develop a new generalized Space-Time Adaptive Processing (Generalized STAP) algorithm that discriminates among classes of scatterers. The new generalized formalism is applied to the problem of 3D ISAR imaging of the reentry vehicle (RV) or another object in the ballistic missile threat complex that suppresses radar dipole clutter, using multiple ground-based radars operat ...

  10. Mechanized Skins for Morphing Aircraft Structures

    SBC: TECHNO-SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF06T013

    Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi), in collaboration with the Smart Structures Laboratory of the Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center at the University of Maryland (UMD), proposes to develop an innovative mechanized skin technology for large-scale area changes in morphing UAVs. The pneumatically driven morphing skin (PDMS) system will exploit superior performance characteristics of McKibben actuators, in con ...
