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. Enhanced Riverine Drifter

    SBC: Oceanscience Group            Topic: N10AT024

    Existing riverine drifters are passive devices designed to capture, store and transmit river flow and bathymetry information. Problems inherent with passively drifting devices include the inability to maintain uniform cross-stream spatial coverage and lost drifters due to unintentional grounding and entanglement with various hazards present in a typical river environment. This proposal outlines a ...

  2. Autonomous Landing at Unprepared Sites for a Cargo Unmanned Air System

    SBC: Data Flux Systems Inc.            Topic: N10AT039

    We propose to design, develop, implement, simulate, and demonstrate an autonomous control and sensing system for the safe vertical landing of autonomous aerial cargo delivery system (ACDS). The landing site is expected to be unprepared mountain sides with slopes up to 15 degrees and rough terrain containing rocks and brush. We also plan to reduce the amount of ground equipment required to operate ...

  3. Automating the Application of Deception Detection Heuristics to Unstructured Data

    SBC: STOTTLER HENKE ASSOCIATES, INC            Topic: N10AT029

    We propose to construct a deception detection system which will exploit scaffolding provided by a collection of largely domain-independent deception detection heuristics. These heuristics, integrated through a novel evidential reasoning system, will provide the proposed system, called Skeptic, with a significant advantage over purely inductive methods by allowing it to exploit the adversarial natu ...

  4. Mitigation of USV Motions via Wave Sensing and Prediction

    SBC: ADVANCED SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N10AT036

    Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) has teamed with the Department of Ocean Engineering at The University of Rhode Island to devise a sensor suite and computer algorithm to predict ocean waves to aid autonomous boat navigation in heavy weather. The centerpiece of the sensor suite is a Lidar designed by ASC that is adapted to image the ocean at glancing angles. It’s ability to acquire a 3D s ...

  5. Coupling Collaboration to SOA Services and Decision Support for the Warfighter via Navy Wave

    SBC: HARMONIA HOLDINGS GROUP, LLC            Topic: N10AT045

    Collaboration between Navy warfighters at the Operational Level of War is essential. In the Navy today collaboration to achieve Commander’s Control Actions is done ashore and on large deck afloat platforms with video teleconferencing and voice over IP. But only those platforms have sufficient bandwidth, and even then available bandwidth drop during mission critical times. Meanwhile the only ubiq ...

  6. Mathematically Rigorous Methods for Determining Software Quality

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            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 ...

  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. Advanced Real Time Battery Monitoring and Management System

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORP            Topic: N10AT013

    TSC and Purdue University will demonstrate a lab prototype of software and hardware capable of doing high speed monitoring of a Lithium-Ion cell. This monitoring needs to be specifically designed to predict failures. When a predictive failure is indicated a defensive countermeasure needs to be implemented. Our specific project goals are to: 1) Select a Lithium-Ion battery that consists of multiple ...

  9. Tunable Polarization Insensitive Digital Fiber Optic Wavelength Converter with Built-In Test Capability

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: N08T012

    A fully functional widely tunable wavelength converter prototype operating from -40C to 100C at 2.5-10 Gbps, in a 5mm tall package, will be developed.

  10. Ultra Low Drive Voltage Electro-Optic Modulator

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: ST081014

    The development of compact, ultra-low drive voltage optical phase modulators is a critical key component for passive antenna remoting applications, a strategic area, part of a number of current and upcoming DARPA initiatives. With the development of sufficiently low V-pi modulators, passive front-ends can be constructed with a low figure even for a moderate optical pumping power. The combination o ...
