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. Passive Infrared Detection of Aerosolized Bacterial Spores

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A10AT019

    deciBel Research and our university partner, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)-Center for Imaging Science, propose to develop a dual MWIR/LWIR imaging polarimeter for the detection and discrimination of aerosolized biological spores. The system will exploit spectral absorption and MIE scattering-induced radiometric and polarimetric phenomenon exhibited by clouds of aerosolized biological spo ...

  2. Innovative Passive Magnetic Thrust Bearings for High-Speed Turbomachinery

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N10AT037

    In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposes to use a passive, permanent magnet thrust bearing to alleviate this problem and increase service life to over 1000 hours. Since this type of bearing is non-contacting, it can operate at very high rotational speeds with minimal heat gen ...

  5. Forecasting Dynamic Group Behavior in Social Media

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: ST12B002

    We propose to develop novel, scalable technology for detection and of tracking of new and existing groups in social media, together with a comprehensive set of indicators for inferring group activities and interactions. Focusing initially on Twitter data, our approach will extend existing"static"models of community structure to properly fuse both topic-based and topological information, and will u ...

  6. Full-Response TDDFT on Graphical Processing Units for Modeling Optical Response in Materials

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF09BT30

    Limited computational resources remain a serious obstacle to the application of quantum chemistry in problems of widespread importance, such as the design of new catalysts for use in fuel cells, or for modeling of material and optical properties of liquids and solids. Researchers have a considerable impetus to relieve this bottleneck, both by developing new and more effective algorithms and explor ...

  7. Frequency Agile Sensor for Trace Explosives Detection

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF08BT26

    In collaboration with Sandia National Laboratory, Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a Frequency Agile Terahertz Sensor (FATS) for trace explosives residue detection. The critical frequency agile terahertz (THz) detector is based on an electronically tunable plasmonic grating-gate technology developed by our collaborators at Sandia. Phase I will further impr ...

  8. Realistic State and Measurement Error Uncertainty Computation and Propagation for Space Surveillance and Reconnaissance

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT11

    Space surveillance is the component of space situational awareness focused on the detection of resident space objects (RSOs) and the use of multisource data to track and identify space objects. While the propagation of the states of RSOs has been investigated extensively over the last fifty years, the correct propagation of their covariance or the more general (non-Gaussian) probability distribut ...

  9. Feature-Aided RF/IR Track Correlation

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: MDA12T001

    Missile tracking sensors such as radar and EO/IR are often called upon to track constellations of multiple closely spaced objects, and recognize pairs of matching tracks from each sensor"s view. The outcome of this track correlation process is crucial for missile defense interceptors, as any failure to identify matches with certainty, for example because of an excessive number of tracks associate ...

  10. Revolutionary Data Presentation and Manipulation (REVOLT)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: MDA18T001

    Successful missile defense is critical to the security of the United States, its deployed forces, and its allies. Across numerous simulations, tests, and operational scenarios, the Government amasses large quantities of complex high-dimensional data describing missile defense outcomes. While Missile Defense Agency (MDA) analysts need to use this data to better understand and improve missile defens ...
