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. Deep Inference and Fusion Framework Utilizing Supporting Evidence (DIFFUSE)

    SBC: BOSTON FUSION CORP            Topic: MDA15T001

    Combining information from disparate sensors can lead to better situational awareness and improved inference performance; unfortunately, traditional multi-sensor fusion cannot capture complex dependencies among different objects in a scene, nor can it exploit context to further boost performance. Integrating context information within a fusion architecture to reason cohesively about scenes of inte ...

  2. Robust Classification through Deep Learning and Dynamic Multi-Entity Bayesian Reasoning

    SBC: EXOANALYTIC SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: MDA15T001

    Missile defense faces the challenges of rapidly maturing and evolving complex threats, possessing capabilities which require the use of all available resources to successfully detect, track and identify the lethal objects. Future performance will rely on multiple sensors such as ground and sea based radars and electro-optical and infrared sensors for target recognition. It is crucial to develop a ...

  3. System of Systems Control Interactions

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T002

    Control Theory tools and processes for analyzing the interactions of complex System of Systems (SoS) are lacking, specifically when sub-systems are independently designed and/or higher levels of SoS controls are applied. Integrating these sub-systems into the SoS, can result in dynamic interactions between these sub-systems and the SoS controls resulting in unexpectedly large deviations between ex ...

  4. Sufficient Statistics for System of Systems Control (S4C)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T002

    There is an urgent need to develop and demonstrate innovative control, design and analysis techniques to characterize the stability and performance of a system of systems (SoS) as a function of sub-system dynamics, network structure and control/decision processes. This is particularly true in the missile defense scenario, which involves a coordinated defense against threats. However, there is no e ...

  5. System of Systems Control Interactions

    SBC: GTD Unlimited LLC            Topic: MDA15T002

    In this research effort, GTD Unlimited will design tools for efficiently specifying, representing, and analyzing the interactions between control systems in System of Systems (SoS). Our approach will be to model the problem as an uncertain system and analyze the resulting models using control methods. Control methods can be related back to the standard Nyquist criterion for stability, ensuring t ...

  6. Mechanistic Model Development for Gold Contaminated Solder Joint Reliability

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: MDA15T005

    DfR Solutions and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have formed a team of experts in solder joint reliability and gold embrittlement to perform a series of experiments that will provide the data necessary to create mechanistic reliability models. Critical to any application of these models and of interpreting experimental results is the ability to determine solder joint gold contaminatio ...

  7. CCA-SAFE: A Model-Assisted NDE Tool for Failure Analysis of Gold Contaminated Solder Joints

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T005

    Gold contamination in Circuit Card Assembly (CCA) solder joints leads to brittle intermetallic compounds (IMCs), which is one of the major factors in solder joint failure. The conventional rule of thumb considers 3 wt% of gold (Au) as a safety threshold, which is not always reliable due to varieties of package platforms, solder types, reflux settings, operational and environmental conditions, etc. ...

  8. Gold-Contaminated Solder-Joint Characterization for Quantifying Risk Associated with Gold Embrittlement

    SBC: ENIG ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: MDA15T005

    Circuit card assembly (CCA) reliability is dependent on solder joints, which join components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Board users strive to mitigate risks associated with gold-embrittled solder joints. Enig Associates, Inc. (ENIG), in collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories, proposes to develop a risk-forecasting tool for quantifying the risks associated with gold-embrittled sold ...

  9. Microelectronics Component Adhesive Selection and Design Rules for Failure Avoidance

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T002

    Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of stress related failure in microelectronics, which raises concerns about product reliability and specification. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a testing and physics based modeling protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditio ...

  10. Base Metal Electrode Capacitor Test Methods

    SBC: FUNDO SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T003

    Miniaturized base metal electrodes (BME) multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) are of great interest for future missile applications as designers are striving to achieve smaller, lighter, cheaper, faster and better electronic assemblies without sacrificing long-term performance. Unfortunately, screening, reliability and qualifications criteria are either not available or not standardized. In the ...
