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. Membrane-Based Interferometric Respiration Sensor

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    To address the national need to increase transportation security and to prevent human smuggling within cargo containers, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop Membrane-based Interferometric Respiration Sensor (MIRS), based on a semipermeable, membrane that preferentially transmits carbon dioxide and an active interferometric readout to detect minute periodic variations in carbon di ...

  3. Human Occupancy Detection System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    To address the HSARPA need to detect humans hiding in cargo shipping containers, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Human Occupancy Detection (HOD) system. The HOD will be based on POC's sensor fusion and neural networks pattern recognition technology, combined with a novel chemical gas sensor array. The HOD detects human presence by detecting and identifying major human r ...

  10. Stand-Off Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy Detection of Concealed Weapons and Explosives

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop the design for a stand-off active terahertz imaging and spectroscopy system prototype for the detection of concealed threats at ranges up to 50 meters. Terahertz imaging has the potential to reveal concealed explosives; metallic and non-metallic weapons (such as ceramic, plastic or composite guns and knives); flammables; biological agents; chemical weapons and other threats. ...
