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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. Imprinted Polymer Nanoparticles for Explosives

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: HSB0101004

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project consists of fundamental research into molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) nanoparticles to act as sensing points in novel detection system for explosives. The system is based upon MIP nanoparticles deposited upon a MEMS-based chemicapacitive sensor array. As the MIP nanoparticle binds the explosive, the polarizability of the material changes ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Human Occupancy Detection System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    To address the HSARPA need to detect humans hiding in cargo shipping containers, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Human Occupancy Detection (HOD) system. The HOD will be based on POC's sensor fusion and neural networks pattern recognition technology, combined with a novel chemical gas sensor array. The HOD detects human presence by detecting and identifying major human r ...

  7. Human-Animal Discrimination Capability for Unattended Ground Sensors

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Handling false alarms produced by animals is a special problem for unattended ground sensors (UGS) because of the number of ways that animal signatures can mimic those of humans. Specifically, animal footsteps are impulsive, much like humans; the contact of a foot or hoof on the ground produces a sudden noise that rapidly fades away. Seismic, acoustic, and passive infrared (PIR) sensors are often ...

  8. High-Yield Pulsed Neutron Generator

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    A pulsed neutron generator is proposed for the detection of special nuclear material. A recently developed RF-excited plasma neutron generator will be pulsed to produce the activating neutrons whose pulse length is 100 microseconds with a fall time of less than 1 microsecond. High pulse repetition rates and high peak neutron yields can be otained depending upon the RF generator used. Using the T-T ...

  9. High SYmmetric PowER (HYPER) Battery

    SBC: TYFAST ENERGY CORP            Topic: 1

    This proposal aims to rethink the fundamental design of a high-power lithium-ion battery to realize the combined properties of high energy density, ultrafast charging and long cycle life. The team of Tyfast, 2matls, SpectraPower and UC San Diego have demonstrated electrode breakthroughs, experience in designing fast-charging batteries and use of novel electrolytes to deliver a battery cell exceedi ...

  10. High Speed Non Ionizing Terahertz Measurement System to Replace Nuclear Gages

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to prove the feasibility of a high speed non ionizing time domain terahertz (THz) measurement system to replace nuclear gauges. Nuclear source gauges (such as beta and gamma) are used in industrial process monitoring and control, often to measure thickness or mass in paper, plastics, rubber, and food stuffs in manufacturing and packaging. A single system based on low power non-ionizing ...
