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. 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 ...

  2. Standalone Multiple Anomaly Recognition Technique

    SBC: CREATIVE ELECTRON INC            Topic: N/A

    Threat materials can take many shapes and therefore this software tool must be able to perform anomaly detection instead of specific shape detection. The problem of solely relying on a database of images and a matching algorithm is that objects in the image may be shifted, rotated, or the image quality is too poor for a reliable match. Thus, this proposal focuses on the development of an anomaly r ...

  3. Bilayer Nanofibers as Wearable Sensors for Detecting Fentanyl Compounds

    SBC: Vaporsens, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Drug overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old, with fentanyl claiming more lives than any other drug.Alarmingly, the problem is increasing, with fentanyl overdoses claiming nearly twice as many lives in 2016 compared to 2015.In addition to users, first responders are at risk for coming into contact with fentanyl as they perform their duties.Fentanyl is extremely ...

  4. Hardening for Commercially Available Hand Held Computing and Communications Devices for First Responders

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: HSB0122004

    First responders operate in emergency situations that require ruggedized gear that can survive temperature, impact, and moisture. Utilizing the communication devices that first responders already carry on them has many benefits including: always on-scene, reduced cost of distributing equipment, elimination of training requirements, and many others. Ruggedizing commercial hand held computing and ...

  5. Airborne Risk Identification Enabled by Raman and Luminescence (ARIEL)

    SBC: PHOTON SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: DHS211011

    This proposal addresses the need for detection of multiple biological threats in a manner that mitigates the current challenges with short analysis times without environmental interferences. This proposal will lead to a near-real-time in-situ reagentless portable sensor that enables detection and identification of multiple biological threats using deep UV laser induced native fluorescence/Raman sp ...

  6. Embedding of Advanced Search Technique for Detect, Locate, and Track for Pedestrian-based Search

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 121002

    Techniques employed by expert operators to enhance the ability to detect, locate and track radiation sources are straightforward in concept but require substantial skill in execution and in interpretation of the detector readings obtained, combined with the operator's visual observations. By combining detectors with fast acquisition times, below 500 milliseconds, with the video and computational c ...

  7. Realistic and Adaptive Interactive Learning Systems (RAILS)

    SBC: SPECTRAL LABS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The Next Generation computer based PRND Training Application sought by DNDO requires seamless coordination of First Responder Training expertise, Video Simulation capability, Radiation Physics principles and PRND Equipment familiarity. Spectral Labs Inc. (SLI) proposes an innovative approach that brings all of these elements together to develop simulation software that provides physically realisti ...

  8. Wearable Chemical Detector for Aerosolized Threats

    SBC: Design West Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHS221010

    Traditional Chemical Warfare, Pharmaceutical Based and Non-Traditional Agents (CWAs, PBAs and NTAs) are substances that have high melting points and low volatilities which are delivered as a solid or liquid aerosols to the intended target. A person-wearable detector system that can adequately collect and prepare aerosol samples for detection based on proven vapor phase chemical sensors is therefor ...

  9. MoSRA: Modular Software Risk Assessment

    SBC: Objectsecurity LLC            Topic: DHS211007

    The objective of the solicitation is to develop a commercial capability and product to analyze compiled binary executables of Windows applications, that can detect and report embedded software library information in multi-faceted software packages. The libraries are shared, for example as Windows .dll files, or are directly linked into static binaries, and are not available as source code. Normall ...

  10. Smart-Tagging with Expected Zonal Behavior, A System to Monitor Known Radioactive Sources

    SBC: ZonTrak Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New approaches and techniques are required to effectively monitor and track radiological sources that are currently in use. We are proposing to develop a new class of monitoring and analysis methods that incorporate sensing information collected from zone-aware compact radiation detectors with built-in communications links. These intelligent tags are placed in designated areas where radiation sour ...
