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. Cargo X-Ray Image Anomaly Detection using Intelligent Agents

    SBC: Forell Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our technical concept applies FORELL's unique intelligent agent technology to learn rules for detection of anomalies in images created by high energy x-rays, thereby reducing operator load, reducing false positives, and reducing inspection time. Our technology is unique in the creation of anomaly detection rules that are automatically generated through a unique intelligent agent learning capabili ...

  2. Ultra Wideband (UWB) Networked Wireless Tags for Marine Asset Tracking

    SBC: Gaea Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a novel ultra wideband (UWB) wireless tag system capable of tracking shipping containers while being loaded, closely stacked above or below decks, or being moved within shipping terminals. Each container has one or more tags that use UWB wireless technology to form an ad-hoc mesh network with its neighboring containers. In addition, each tag can measure the distance to its neighboring t ...

  3. Intensity-Modulated Advanced X-ray Source (IMAXS)

    SBC: PTSE, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    We propose to build an Intensity-Modulated Advanced X-ray Source (IMAXS) for cargo inspection systems that allows such systems to achieve 1 to 2 inches greater penetration for dense cargo (steel or equivalent) while, on average, producing the same amount, or less, radiation. Alternatively, cargo inspection systems using the new design may opt to have the same penetration as with conventional sourc ...

  4. Embedded Inertial State Tags for Marine Asset Tracking

    SBC: iControl Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    To provide a complete system for tracking and monitoring marine assets, the proposed effort will design an RF tag that utilizes low-cost, embedded microprocessors and accelerometers for calculating the inertial states of the container while onboard the ship. The initial states are determined at the time of loading by differential GPS measurements taken by the on-ship gateway and the in-terminal ga ...

  5. Microwave Data Telemetry for Marine Container Security

    SBC: INFRARED TELEMETRICS, INC            Topic: HSB041005

    IR Telemetrics builds microwave telemetry systems for transmitting sensor data through narrow metallic passages within automobile engines. IRT devices can interface with sensors and transmit their data to a local receiver network through complex passages as small as four centimeters. Research will adapt IRT core technology to enable continuous communication with marine containers. The performance ...

  6. Distributed Temperature Sensing for Automatic Blast Detection

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP            Topic: HSB071002

    Fires in tunnels, whether resulting from collisions, bombs, or other sources, are extremely hazardous. Authorities need immediate notification of the problem to provide quick assistance to passengers and prevent additional collisions. One solution is to place temperature sensors along the length of the tunnel; these sensors can be used to detect blasts and issue an alarm. Placing sensors in a tunn ...

  7. Neurobiologically-based System for Object Segmentation and Recognition

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

    This phase I project will create, for the first time, a dynamic system, based on neurophysiology of the brain, to perfrom image segmentation using high level info. In computer vision, pattern recognition is frequently hampered by poor image segmentation. Segmentation algorithms have not been able to segment an image as a human would, instead they form regions based on mathematically defined crit ...

  8. N/A

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

    Not Available This innovative concept will develop a model for determining the fraction of neutral outgassed or vented molecules that leave a spacecraft, are then ionized by solar photons, and then return and deposit on spacecraft charged surfaces. Electrostatic Retur

  9. Less-Lethal Eye Safe Handheld LED-Based Incapacitator for Law Enforcement

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

    Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) has developed and demonstrated a prototype dazzler that utilizes an array of super-bright Light Emitting Diode (LED) clusters to produce disorientation and strong flashblindness with afterimages. In this project, IOS proposes to develop a significantly improved device that can operate at distances up to 50 feet at the maximum permissible eye-safe level. Two new in ...

  10. 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 ...
