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. QADE: Quantification, Analysis, Defense and Evaluation System for Resilient and Secure Wireless Communication Operations

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A16AT007

    Wireless communication systems are critical components of Department of Defense (DoD) information operations, such as tactical mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) and control of unmanned vehicles. These systems must offer trusted and reliable mission-oriented information exchange over the air in contested, congested, and adversary battlefield scenarios. The broadcast nature of the wireless communicati ...

  2. Identification of Multiple Illicit Drugs Using a Handheld Detector Based on Chemiresitive Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16AT008

    Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. Novel sensing materials, with enhanced chemical sensit ...

  3. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...

  4. Paper test cards for detection of illicit narcotic and cannabinioid drugs

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    Vuronyx Technologies and Prof. Marya Lieberman at the University of Notre Dame will develop paper analytical devices (idPADs) to presumptively identify illicit drugs. All the reagents needed to perform twelve different chemical color tests are stored on the idPAD. The user rubs the powder to be tested across the PAD, then dips the PAD in water to activate the tests. Within five minutes, a color ...

  5. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc            Topic: A16AT004

    White River Technologies, Inc. (WRT) and University of Vermont (UVM) present this proposal, "Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines". Among the primary gaps in our current landmine detection technology base is the ability to detect a wide range of buried explosive hazards including emerging low-metal mines and improvised explosive devices ...

  6. Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR)

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORP            Topic: A16AT011

    NadirSAR imaging offers a means to detect targets in challenging environments. TSC and SDL propose to leverage the work we have already performed for RRTO to develop and demonstrate a NadirSAR imaging technique at X-band. TSCs baseline technique exploits range resolution for height and performs SAR Tomographic processing around a circular flight path to obtain resolution in the ground plane. Measu ...

  7. Conductive Transmissive Coating for Enhanced-Absorption Thin Film Solar Cells

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A15AT016

    Thin-film, lightweight, large-area flexible inorganic solar cells have shown promise to meet the militarys remote power needs on the battlefield. However, thin film solar cells normally have inferior conversion efficiencies due to limited absorption of sunlight by the thin active layer. Various approaches have been investigated to improve conversion efficiencies of thin film solar cells. Among the ...

  8. Nanostructured conductive transparent coatings

    SBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A15AT016

    Triton Systems, Inc. and its academic partner are proposing to fabricate an innovative highly conductive and transmissive thin layer to replace ITO on large area, lightweight solar cells. Part of the proposed approach will be to texture the surface of the coating to improve light transmission into the solar cell. Triton will work with a manufacturer of flexible solar panels for the Army, who wil ...

  9. Advanced Printed Circuit Board Design Methods for Compact Optical Transceiver

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A15AT001

    As the warfighter is increasingly using more highly integrated instruments, e.g. a laser rangefinder (LRF) combined with a laser designator and an imager, the need to decrease the size of these components becomes more important. Compact small munition applications of rangefinders particularly place an emphasis on size of the optical front end. In order to make the transceiver more compact, speci ...

  10. Terahertz Nano-Radio Platform with Integrated Antenna and Power source

    SBC: CREONEX SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A15AT005

    Recent demand for short-range communications has risen sharply for both the defense and commercial sectors. Tactical communications with a deployed sensor network require secure short-range communications and high network density to enable robust data fusion and collaborative sensing for enhanced situation awareness for the war fighters. The THz nano-radio technology being developed in this projec ...
