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. Software Based Roots of Trust for Enhanced Mobile Device Security

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: HSB0132002

    Mobile devices require security features that are utilized by application developers and users to ensure secure communication and commerce. Existing features on mobile hardware are often considered proprietary between the manufacturer and the telecommunications provider, rendering them unavailable for external use. Current works-around involve adding trusted hardware to the device, which increases ...

  2. A Rapid-to-Deploy Agent-Based Wireless Sensing Architecture for Autonomous Structural Collapse Prediction

    SBC: CIVIONICS, LLC            Topic: HSB0132004

    While most media attention in the wake of a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, or even a single building fire focuses rightly on the safety and wellbeing of the general public, one often overlooked aspect of these catastrophic events is the extreme risk taken by first responders who enter structures on the verge of collapse. For example, after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September ...

  3. GPS EMitter LOCalization (GEMLOC)

    SBC: Coherent Navigation, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131004

    In response to DHS SBIR Topic H-SB013.1-004 we propose to investigate the development of a next-generation, tiered, inexpensive, light-weight, low-power, high-performance GPS emitter detection and localization system. The system will provide high-accuracy (high-sensitivity), real-time or near-real-time estimates of position, velocity, transmit frequency, and transmit power level of multiple, movin ...

  4. Civilian Interference Detection and Estimation Receiver (CIDER)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0131004

    Toyon has teamed with two utilities to survey the use of civilian GPS receivers in the energy and communication sectors, and to determine their vulnerabilities to intentional interference, including narrowband and wideband jamming, spoofers, repeaters, and RF-based 'software attacks.' As part of the survey, the characteristics and weaknesses of the deployed civilian receivers will be determined an ...

  5. RF Tracking in Wooded Areas

    SBC: Xandem Technology LLC            Topic: HSB0131001

    This SBIR Phase I project will investigate the possibility of using a network of low-cost, battery-powered radio frequency (RF) transceivers to detect, localize and track the movements of people illegally trying to enter the US borders through wooded areas. The system uses radio tomography (RT), i.e., the changes in radio signal strength (RSS) measurements on the static links of the network over t ...

  6. RF Sensing of Personnel in Wooded Areas

    SBC: TrellisWare Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0131001

    Perhaps because it is the world's longest undefended border, smuggling is endemic across the our northern frontier with Canada. Since a 5,525 mile border cannot be effectively patrolled on foot, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) must rely on technology to detect and track smugglers. Radio tomographic imaging (RTI) is an emerging device-free passive (DfP) localization technology that could ...

  7. Hardening for Commercially Available Hand Held Computing and Communications Devices for First Responders

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: HSB0122004

    First responders operate in emergency situations that require ruggedized gear that can survive temperature, impact, and moisture. Utilizing the communication devices that first responders already carry on them has many benefits including: always on-scene, reduced cost of distributing equipment, elimination of training requirements, and many others. Ruggedizing commercial hand held computing and ...

  8. Advanced sodium batteries with enhanced safety and low cost processing

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Sodium beta-alumina batteries are one of the most promising large-scale electrical energy storage technologies due to their high energy density and excellent cycling capability. Despite many advantages, the sodium batteries have several barriers for successful commercialization, mainly related to safety issues and high capital investment for installation. The current battery cells typically oper ...

  9. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...
