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. Portable High-Intensity X-Ray Source Based on a 10 MeV Superconducting Electron Linac

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141007

    In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection has become a high priority. Cargo scanning using either radiographic imaging or active interrogation for Special Nuclear Material (SNM) requires high energy and high intensity x-rays. High intensity x-ray sources are especially important for active interrogation techniques such as photo-fission, delayed neutron & gamma measurements, p ...

  2. Miniaturized High Energy X-ray Source for Mobile Non-Intrusive Inspection Systems

    SBC: RADIABEAM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: HSB0141007

    Mobile Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) systems are advantageous as they can be deployed to where the greatest need exists, and they generally have small footprints, which is necessary in many locations. However the currently deployed mobile NII systems do not offer effective material discrimination, which is critical for shielded radiological/nuclear threat identification. This is because the curre ...

  3. A Handheld Multi-Gas Sensor Based on Selective Gas Adsorption on Mass Transducers

    SBC: MATRIX SENSORS INC.            Topic: HSB0142006

    We propose to develop a portable, rugged, handheld multi-gas sensor that is well within the solicitation requirements. We will leverage a mature class of mass sensors that include, for example: quartz crystal microbalances (QCMs) and capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs). These sensors boast extraordinary sensitivity to changes in mass (e.g., 50 femtograms for CMUTs) and are u ...

  4. Biological Warfare Agents Remediation System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0142001

    To address the DHS need for a novel technology platform that is non-destructive to common environmental surfaces but capable of destroying a range of biological agents, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a Biological Warfare Agents Remediation (BIFAR) system based on photocatalytic ionization of hydrogen peroxide inside porous microcarriers. In Phase I, POC will develop, demonst ...

  5. Laser Exposure Monitoring System (LEMS)

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: HSB0142004

    The proposal describes a solution offered by SARA, Inc. in response to the problem of developing a Laser Exposure Monitoring System (LEMS) capable of directly measuring laser exposures relative to Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) limits and establishing the boundaries of the Nominal Hazard Zones (NHZ). The approach uses multiple sensors to measure the irradiance and spectrum of the laser irradia ...

  6. Status Indicator for Downed Powerlines

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142005

    Severe weather, aging infrastructure, deferred maintenance, and other reasons contribute to calamitous events with regard to uninterrupted power supply to heavily populated urban areas. Not only are power interruptions considered a sign of poor utility infrastructure, but the events can be extremely deadly in consequence to citizens living in proximity. A majority of all power outages happen to o ...

  7. An Ultra-Low Power Handheld Device for Analysis of the Post-Fire Environment

    SBC: KWJ ENGINEERING INC            Topic: HSB0142006

    KWJ proposes to develop an ultra-low power and low cost, handheld device for monitoring of post-fire air quality, including DHS target toxic gases, combustion gases, CO2, LEL and particular matter (PM). The proposed device will significantly improve the current air monitoring instrumentation of protecting fire responders from hazard post-fire environment. Current multi-gas analyzers are not suitab ...

  8. Shielded SNM Detection with Gravity Gradiometry

    SBC: AOSENSE, INC.            Topic: HSB0151008

    We propose to develop a cold-atom gravity gradiometer for nonintrusive, passive detection of shielded special nuclear material (SNM) inside a human occupied vehicle. Both SNM and SNM shielding consist of high-Z materials that are substantially denser than background. Previous theoretical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of gravity tomography for identification of shielded SNM. The propose ...

  9. CanineTRAKR: Tracking Recorder Advanced K9 Radio

    SBC: MNW Tech Inc.            Topic: HSB0151007

    The purpose of this project is to develop the CanineTRAKR system - a low-profile, ruggedized canine mounted audio, video, and location tracking system. The data collected is date, time, and location stamped and stored locally as well as transmitted real-time to the canine handler and the command center coordination, location marking, and remote canine control. The CanineTRAKR system will be design ...

  10. Distributed System for Privacy Protecting Speech Processing

    SBC: Mod9 Technologies            Topic: HSB0151004

    This proposal explores feature representations for automatic speech processing algorithms with a focus on preserving the clients' privacy. We address two different use cases of privacy: a system that transcribes speech, but is unable to infer the identity of speakers, such as an anonymous tip hotline; and a system that identifies speakers, but is unable to recognize the communicated messages, us ...
