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. Explosive Substance Detection Spectrosopic Standoff System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    To address the HSARPA need for remote detection of vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED) and suicide-bomber threats, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Explosive Substance Detection Spectroscopic Standoff System (ESD3S) based on integration of infrared (IR) structure resonance modulation spectroscopy (SRMS) and wavelength modulation spectroscopy (WMS). The key ...

  2. High-Probability Weatherproof Remote Search and Rescue Seeker

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    To address the HSARPA need for an innovative prototype system for real-time detection of human targets in seawater, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new automated High Probability Weatherproof Remote Search and Rescue Seeker (HiProWSer). This proposed system is based on a high-repetition-rate, pulsed, eye-safe laser, and will offer the capability to detect human targets on t ...

  3. Visor-Enhanced SCBA Transparent Armor Lens System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0111006

    To address this HSARPA need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Visor-Enhanced SCBA Transparent Armor (VESTA) lens, based on a transparent metallic-oxide material system, and serving as a drop-in replacement lens in current mask systems. VESTA possesses improved thermomechanical durability (compared to existing polycarbonate lenses) with 5x greater service temperatures and ...

  4. Interactive Neuro-Educational Technolgies (I-INET): Enhanced Training of Threat Detection

    SBC: ADVANCED BRAIN MONITORING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    According to Department of Homeland Security (DHS), over 700 million pieces of baggage are screened for potential threats in the U.S. every year. Training methods for DHS screeners rely on conventional classroom instruction and on-the-job mentoring. By definition, a screener's work is challenging because the search for threats demands sustained, focused attention while reviewing many images with v ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Photogrammetric Compartment Modeling System

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is critical to prevent terrorists, or other smugglers, from using the spaces, holds, and cargo containers aboard ships and boats, to smuggle contraband into our Nation. To date, most surveillance efforts have focused on vision through the wall systems; surprisingly little attention has been paid to identifying and locating possible hidden areas. A clear identification of these areas could signi ...

  7. Polychromic Imaging for Standoff Detection of Explosives and Weapons

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: HSB042005

    Terahertz (THz) radiation imaging and sensing is one of the most promising technologies for standoff detection of concealed threats. New THz sources and detectors are emerging on the commercial market. Existing methods for data processing and image construction, however, are either too cumbersome or fail to provide much of the required data for detecting concealed weapons and explosives. Intellige ...

  8. Faster Optical Modem for Underwater Data Acquisition

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: NGA182001

    SA Photonics’ Optical Navigation and Ranging (ONAR) system is an interrogative system that operate underwater in wavelength range of blue/green (450-540 nm) and enables navigational correction to IMU based dead reckoning navigation. The location based beacons are battery operated and have operational life span of over one year. The system is designed to operate in on demand burst mode so that no ...

  9. Miniature Long-Life Cooler for Portable Gamma Ray Detectors

    SBC: ATLAS SCIENTIFIC            Topic: HSB051003

    This proposal describes a battery operated 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 for portable H ...

  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 ...
