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.
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: N18AT021
Active imaging systems are used to for imaging in degraded visual environments like that found in marine fog and other environments with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like fog, rain, smoke, and dust.These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of multiple image enhancement techniques, like wavelength tunability, pulse contro ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: HAL Technology, LLC Topic: N18AT023
Gas turbine engines with prolonged exposure to sand and dust are susceptible to component and performance degradation and ultimately engine failure. Hal Technology’s proprietary, compact, rugged, flush-mounted, fiber-optic sensor platform measures particulate size, size distributions, and concentration for real-time engine health monitoring. Our proposed sensor will use an innovative hybrid disc ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC Topic: N18AT026
Friction stir welding (FSW) is an attractive joining method where high strength low porosity welds can be attained. However, the high temperatures and forces required for welding high strength materials like steel require the use of exotic tools. Cubic boron nitride (cBN)-based tools offer attractive tool wear characteristics in steels, but are very costly. Conversely, refractory metal alloys are ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: RAM LABORATORIES Topic: N18AT027
The Internet of Things (IoT) is increasingly being used to create smart platforms where operators are being removed from the loop. These smart capabilities include collaborative IoT sensors and platforms that are self-aware and provide capabilities of self-prediction, self-configuration, and self-maintenance. To fully take advantage of these advances, however, testbeds and frameworks are needed to ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: HVMN Inc. Topic: SOCOM17C001
In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Inhibiting Prolyl Hydroxylase to Mimic Natural Acclimatization to High Altitude to Improve Warfighter Performance at High AltitudeSBC: Research Logistics Company Topic: SOCOM17C001
Acclimatization is the long-term adjustment that humans experience when exposed for weeks or months to high altitude. Acclimatization is important in this context because a warfighter who is acclimatized to high altitude is immune to high altitude illness, has superior work capacity, and has cognitive function approaching that found at sea level. In other words, the acclimatized warfighter is opti ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
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 ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: SOCOM18A001
The objective of this proposal is to develop instrumentation and algorithms for acquiring facial features for facial recognition in low- and no-light conditions.We will use cross-spectrum matching by exploiting infrared polarimetric imagery which tends to show features that match more closely visible imagery than conventional infrared.In addition to thermal infrared, we will also test subjects in ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: BAYSPEC, INC. Topic: A16AT012
BaySpec Inc., in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, proposes to develop a new portable multi-order mass spectrometry system that can sequence peptides derived from biological agents including bacteria, viruses, and toxins. During Phase I stage, a fully functional prototype instrument, based on an innovative design concept, was successfully built and the performance evaluatio ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: MICROELECTRONICS RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION Topic: DTRA16A003
Micro-RDC has developed portable radiation effects test structures that scale to new process nodes.These structures will enable the investigation of the effects of radiation on the new technology from the material processing level as well as the circuit level.Fabricating the chosen structures and the refinement of software to extract the model parameters will be completed in this effort.A suite of ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
