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. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: MUKH Technologies LLC            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    Recognizing faces in low-light and nighttime conditions is a challenging problem due to the noisy and poor quality nature of the images.Thermal imaging is often used to obtain facial biometric in such conditions. Thermal face images, while having a strong signature at nighttime, are not typically maintained in biometric-enabled watch lists and so must be compared with visible-light face images to ...

  2. Disposal of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam using Hydrodynamic Cavitation

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC.            Topic: AF17BT001

    The widespread use of Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) at DOD facilities for firefighting, training, and fire suppression systems has resulted in numerous contamination sites. The perfluoroalkyl (PFA) compounds used in the AFFF, such as perfluoroalkyl sulfonates (PFOS) and perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (PFOA) are extremely stable in the environment and have been shown to be resistant to typical ...

  3. Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

    SBC: QUANTUM APPLIED SCIENCE & RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF17BT002

    Because of rising demand for human analysts and more efficient processing of increasingly large and challenging amounts of intelligence, human limitations on mental workload, cognitive fatigue, and attentionor task engagement, need to be accurately monitored in real-time in order to provide sensitive detection of impaired cognitive states. It is a challenge to continuously monitor these cognitive ...

  4. Closed-Loop Extracranial Activation using Reinforcement-learning (CLEAR)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: AF17BT002

    Increased workloads and operational pressures can degrade human analysts cognitive performance, jeopardizing their ability to safely and effectively carry out mission-critical tasks. To avoid overload and maximize the potential of human operators, a method for conducting real-time evaluation of cognitive state, combined with means to dynamically enhance performance, is required. Novel technologies ...

  5. Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution

    SBC: FUSE INTEGRATION, INC.            Topic: AF17BT003

    Currently networks are not taking advantage of the inherent benefits of high multi-beam directional networking. For example, the current MADL implementation simply daisy chains the nodes in the network creating multiple single points of network failure (of course retaining self-healing properties.) The Fuse Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution (DCLNS) optimized architecture features a robus ...

  6. Detection of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Field Bioeffects in Living Cells

    SBC: QUINC.TECH INC.            Topic: AF18AT001

    The Biomagnetics Micro Dosimetry System (BMDS) program will design, model, and simulate a microdosimetry system that can measure and create a three dimensional map of weak radiofrequency signals in biological organisms. The heart of the BMDS project is the front end called a Quinc, that delivers very sensitive, broad band measurements with high spatial resolution.The Quinc based front end is a val ...

  7. Metasurface optics for compact and scalable polarization cameras

    SBC: Metalenz Inc.            Topic: AF18AT005

    Metasurfaces are a fascinating new direction for producing small form factor optical elements that can be directly integrated with a variety of sensors and illumination sources. Metasurfaces have received extensive attention for their potential applications in imaging optics as they enable significantly more compact camera modules with enhanced functionality and because the unit processes to creat ...

  8. AgileBeam Reconfigurable Free Space Optical Communication System

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18AT010

    Free Space Optical (FSO) communication systems provide many benefits for satellite communications, including high data rates and low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) compared to traditional RF communication systems.Additionally, FSO systems operate without RF emissions and are inherently immune to RF interference and jamming.The narrow optical beams and small Field-of-View of the optical receivers al ...

  9. Miniaturized Optical WDM Transmitter/Transceiver

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: AF18AT010

    The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement a low reconfigurable, reliable Free Space Optical (FSO) link supporting high bandwidth communications for satellite to satellite or satellite to ground communication. The FSO Transceiver (Transmitter/Receiver) to be implemented will be small Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) such that it can be easily carried by compact spa ...

  10. Diamond Cathode Coating for Spacecraft Charge Mitigation

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF18AT011

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes the development of a composite laminate cathode coating based largely on consumer off the shelf (COTS) industrial materials functionalized to possess a low work function, negative electron affinity surface. The cathode coating is applicable to any surface of a spacecraft, regardless of shape or material, and allows passive one wire operation for spacecraft cha ...
