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. Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 1

    On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...

  4. Improving Uncertainty Estimation with Neural Graphical Models

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: NGA181005

    Building interpretable, composable autonomous systems requires consideration of uncertainties in the decisions and detections theygenerate. Human analysts need accurate absolute measures of probability to determine how to interpret and use the sometimes noisy resultsof machine learning systems; and composable autonomous systems need to be able to propagate uncertainties so that later reasoningsyst ...

  5. Increasing Carbon Drawdown and Retention in Terrestrial Biomass using Bioengineered Trees

    SBC: Living Carbon PBC            Topic: T

    Carbon drawdown and retention in terrestrial biomass is currently limited by the rate of photosynthetic assimilation and of decay of lignocellulosic biomass respectively. Living Carbon is developing innovative methods of reducing the susceptibility of vegetative biomass to decay by lignotrophic fungi, thereby reducing the rate of release of carbon dioxide back to the atmosphere through fungal resp ...

  9. Innovative Gamma source finding array

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: HSB052006

    The high stress situations facing Security Staff responsible for detecting radiological threats to the United States is complicated by the need to identify these threats in complex backgrounds of natural and/or legitimately transported medical and industrial radiation sources. Although the operational constraints vary, a common need is to quickly provide Specific Isotope and Source Location inform ...

  10. Innovative Tracking System for Monitoring of Stacked Cargo Containers

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Present-day transponders require a clear line-of-sight with the sky, both to track their position with GPS and to relay status information to an uplink. This requirement precludes the ability to track asset tags whose containers are deeply stacked on or below deck. SARA is pleased to offer an innovative solution to overcome the line-of-sight requirement by developing an asset-tag-tracking system b ...
