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. High Performance Long-Life Cooler for Transportable Gamma Ray Detectors

    SBC: ATLAS SCIENTIFIC            Topic: HSB051003

    This proposal describes a transportable cryocooler to be used for cooling High Purity Germanium (HPGe) detectors, commonly used for the detection of gamma rays. HPGe detectors are highly suitable for identifying nuclear materials, which is of great interest in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) applications. HPGe detectors need to operate near 110 K requiring refrigeration. High cooling per ...

  2. A New Method for Sample Preparation Directly in Aerosols

    SBC: Chembionics, Inc.            Topic: HSB051001

    Rapid detection of pathogens in air and/or liquid samples is of paramount importance to minimize a potential threat of biological warfare agent attack as well appearance of emerging infectious diseases. Current methods, particularly those that target aerosols are determined by the efficiency and speed of sample preparation which comprises collection of air sample its conversion into a liquid sampl ...

  3. Channel to Droplet Sample Extraction and Purification Using Electrowetting Device

    SBC: Core MicroSolutions, Inc.            Topic: HSB051001

    To develop advanced ¿channel-to-droplet¿ sample extraction and purification functions on a compact cartridge that is free of sensitive and complex microfluidic components, Core Microsolutions (CMSS) and Professor Sung Cho of the University of Pittsburgh propose to integrate Electrowetting-on-Dielectric (EWOD) droplet handling and in-droplet concentration capabilities with well proven channel-bas ...

  4. High Resolution Underwater Passive Threat Detection System

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: HSB051004

    We propose to develop a highly sensitive, low cost system for underwater perimeter control. The setup, designed for protection of waterside facilities and infrastructure, consists of a fiber-optic cable placed in front of a critical or high-value asset, connected to a compact readout system. A single source sends out acoustic sonar pulses. Sensor structures embedded in the fiber in conjunction wit ...

  5. Development of an Advanced Fluidic Sample Bioprocessor

    SBC: MICROCHIP BIOTECHNOLOGIES            Topic: HSB051001

    This proposal describes a completely automated, NanoBioSentinel sample preparation instrument for biodefense. The NanoBioSentinel will contain two modules: a bead-based Sample Capture and Purification Module (SCPM) front-end and a microchip-based NanoBioProcessor Module. Built partly upon existing devices, the SCPM will use immunocapture and multi-dimensional purifications to process milliliter vo ...

  6. Inertial Capacitive Incapacitator

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB051005

    The Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking an innovative less-lethal untethered electromuscular disruptor device that is inexpensive, safe, lightweight, man portable, and easy to use to stop illegal behavior of individuals, groups, or crowds. The physical environments vary from a small room to a city street or a sports stadium. The goal is to temporarily incapacitate, confu ...

  7. Novel Quantum Dot Assisted Semiconductor Gamma Ray Detector

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB051002

    To address homeland security needs, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Gamma Ray Quantum Dot Semiconductor Heterostructure (GammaDot) sensor system. This compact modular system consists of Pb quantum dot (Q-dot) heterostructure laser module, a photodiode module, and a smart electronics module. The Pb Q-dot laser module consists of a stack of heterostructure lasers, which g ...

  8. An Underwater Threat Detection System Employing Low-Cost Sensing and Advanced Algorithms

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HSB051004

    A vast array of high-value installations are situated within or near waterways. With such a large number of vulnerable targets, current threat detection schemes are too costly to provide sufficient levels of protection. At the same time, with 95% of material goods arriving via ports and waterways, any new system must offer sufficient performance to prove effective in such an active environment. A ...

  9. Smart Joint system for in-situ monitoring of buildings

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HS052005

    Acellent Technologies proposes to develop a smart joint structural health monitoring (SHM) sensor network that can autonomously assess in real time the structural stability of structures such as buildings. The sensor network will use a combination of large and small piezoelectric actuators and sensors to characterize damage in, and monitor the rigidity of components of the building primary structu ...

  10. A Directional Gamma Auto Spectrometer

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB052006

    The Government is deploying a growing number of radiation detectors at U.S. borders, ports of entry and other key locations, intended to assist in the detection of a potential terrorist`s nuclear explosive device or radiological dispersal device. The most widely deployed radiation detector products today are radiation "pagers". Such products are unable to differentiate between natural radiation, l ...
