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. Marine Asset Tag Tracking Systems

    SBC: Tera Research, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The key challenges to the envisioned Marine Asset Tag Tracking System are: 1) Establishing a reliable communication link to each container when they are stacked together, and 2) Determining the position of each container within the stack. Reliable communication is difficult because of the line of sight obstruction from an external radio to the tag when the containers are stacked at a terminal or o ...

  2. Advanced Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) Technologies

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    In border security applications for remote deployment, with no existing infrastructure or roadways as well as areas with dense foliage, a promising technology is the use of unattended ground sensors (UGS). While there has been a great deal of research and development in the areas of UGS and wireless sensor networks (WSN) over the last decade, traditional use of these technologies suffers from eith ...

  3. System for Designing and Evaluating Chemical or Biological Agent Sensor Networks

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The current state-of-the-art (SOA) process for designing chemical and biological sensor networks at facilities is slow, expensive, and requires highly skilled subject matter experts to complete. Toyon Research Corporation proposes a radically different approach to the SOA process, which will be faster, more affordable, and accessible to non-expert facility operators. Using the proposed approach wi ...

  4. Signal Processing for a Southern Border Surveillance System

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Successfully monitoring vast areas of landscape is crucial for maintaining security across the United States border. We envision the solution to this problem to consist of a search sensor, such as a radar, that cues an EO/IR sensor which provides recognition and tracking capabilities. In this Phase I effort, we propose to focus on the signal processing required to support the EO/IR recognition and ...

  5. Secure and Reliable Wireless Communication for Control Systems

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Just as WiFi has become the de facto standard for wireless home networking, IEEE 802.15.4 is quickly becoming the standard of choice for machinery control, building monitoring, and a host of other industrial, commercial, and government control system functions. However, along with increasing popularity of this standard comes new risks in terms of cyber security. Indeed, as the wireless physical an ...

  6. Human-Animal Discrimination Capability for Unattended Ground Sensors

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Handling false alarms produced by animals is a special problem for unattended ground sensors (UGS) because of the number of ways that animal signatures can mimic those of humans. Specifically, animal footsteps are impulsive, much like humans; the contact of a foot or hoof on the ground produces a sudden noise that rapidly fades away. Seismic, acoustic, and passive infrared (PIR) sensors are often ...

  8. A 3-D Visualization System for Situational Awareness: Identifying, Locating, and Tracking People/Resources in Urban Area Infrastructures

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    In order to achieve the strategic plan for a more secure Emergency Preparedness and Response system for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), UtopiaCompression proposes to develop innovative 3-D visualization software system for identifying, localizing and tracking people/resources within buildings in urban area infrastructures. The proposed system will not only automatically collect and proc ...

  9. Second Generation, Fully Networked Smart Medical Vests

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Today's state-of-the-art Medical-Vests/Shirts are inflexible and expensive. Typically, data collection component functions as a multi-channel cardiopulmonary digital-recorder with physiologic-sensors-array sewn to the shirt to monitor vital signs. Peripheral diagnostic devices such as pulse-oximeter, blood-pressure, temperature, weight may be plugged via wire into serial-port of shirt-bus. Measure ...

  10. Wearable Smart Battery for First Responder Applications

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    UtopiaCompresion in collaboration with UCLA is proposing a Smart Battery system which will be compatible with a variety of energy sources, provide efficient energy management capabilities, will be manufactured on a flexible substrate for easy integration into first responder clothing, and provide support for emergency recharge and battery replacement. This work leverages our combined experience wi ...
