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. Integrated learning-based and regularization-based super resolution for extreme MWIR image enhancement

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N17AT016

    OKSI and Northwestern University propose to develop a single-image super-resolution (SR) methodology for mid-wave infrared (MWIR) imagery that combines learning-based and regularization-based approaches to produce extreme enhancement of low-resolution images. We will also develop a detector-limited imaging system specifically designed to be used with the SR methodology for which even higher levels ...

  2. Advanced Command and Control Architectures for Autonomous Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT030

    We propose to develop an innovative open architecture for the semi-autonomous command and control (C2) of teaming Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The proposed architecture, based upon Toyon’s Decentralized Asset Management system, supports both centralized and decentralized fusion and control autonomy solutions as well as hybrids approaches. Leveraging STANAG-4586, TCP/IP, UPD, Google™ protob ...

  3. Blending Classical Model-Based Target Classification and Identification Approaches with Data-Driven Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT033

    Toyon Research Corp. and the University of California propose to develop innovative algorithms to perform automatic target recognition (ATR), localization, and classification of maritime and land targets in EO/IR, LiDAR, and SAR imagery. The proposed algorithms are based on recent developments made at the University of California, which outline a strong mathematical framework for naturally blendin ...

  4. Embedded Space Analytics

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: N16AT020

    Navy needs a real-time graph embedding tool for analyzing huge graphs (millions of nodes and billions of edges) from diverse sources. However, current approaches cannot provide dynamic and scalable graph analytics to signify the military value of tactical data. In this project, InfoBeyond advocates EStreaming (Embedding & Streaming) for scalable and efficient graph streaming. EStreaming promotes b ...

  5. Fast and Flexible Differential Equation Model Fitting with Application to Pharmacometrics

    SBC: Metrum Research Group LLC            Topic: N16AT016

    We are developing a platform for pharmacometric data analysis workflow that is much more flexible and efficient than anything else on the market. This will be accomplished by (1) developing new functions within Stan, a widely used, open-source, probabilistic programming language and Bayesian inference engine, for computationally efficient data analysis using complex differential equation models, ( ...

  6. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: DTRA14B001

    Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...

  7. Risk-Based Unmanned Air System (UAS) Mission Path Planning Capability

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N17BT034

    In this Phase I Project ACTA and its partners will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a risk-based mission path planning (RB MPP) approach. Areas of interest to the Navy where a RB MPP address critical needs include enabling less restrictive UAS operations within the US National and Foreign Airspaces. The Phase I will demonstrate feasibility with a two-step approach. The first step will dem ...

  8. Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) for Autonomous Teams of UAS Platforms

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N17BT035

    OKSI and Professor Matthew Taylor will develop the Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) command and control tool for teams of UAS platforms. CAMO will incorporate existing databases (e.g., NASA population maps, FAA airspace maps, etc.) as well as real-time data from UAS into a learning-based cognitive control solution that maximizes mission performance while minimizing risk for a t ...

  9. Cognitive Risk Management for UAS Missions

    SBC: STOTTLER HENKE ASSOCIATES, INC            Topic: N17BT035

    Enabling operators to command and control multiple UAVs will require higher levels of supervisory control, enabling vehicles to operate autonomously during larger portions of each mission. For the foreseeable future, however, critical portions of each mission will require operators to apply their superior knowledge, judgment, and skills to assess the situation, monitor execution more closely and, ...

  10. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...
