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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Polychromic Imaging for Standoff Detection of Explosives and Weapons

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: HSB042005

    Terahertz (THz) radiation imaging and sensing is one of the most promising technologies for standoff detection of concealed threats. New THz sources and detectors are emerging on the commercial market. Existing methods for data processing and image construction, however, are either too cumbersome or fail to provide much of the required data for detecting concealed weapons and explosives. Intellige ...

  6. Continuous Immunoassay for the Accurate Detection of Low Vapor Pressure TICs

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: HSB041001

    There is a clear and growing need to detect and monitor for highly dangerous releases of toxic industrial compounds (TICs) for the protection of the general public. Current detection and monitoring devices are not adequate to protect against unwanted releases of low vapor TICs because of the high detection sensitivity required. Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) proposes to provide an improved new ...

  7. Cargo Active Tracking Systems (CATS)

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA04.1-005) effort is to develop and prototype a ¿Tag System¿ for maritime shipping containers. The tracking information and status of a shipping container¿s tag system is performed on a global level in a variety of locations: 1) Pre-staged stacked on the dock; 2) Stored on-board of a transport ship; 3) Off-loaded fro ...

  8. QCM Sensors for Low Vapor Pressure Chemicals

    SBC: Palo Alto Sensor Technology Innovation            Topic: N/A

    The development of highly sensitive, fast Fourier transform (FFT) detected, frequency encoded quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) arrays is proposed for the detection of low vapor pressure (LVP) chemical components, including toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). The development of highly sensitive resonant mass detectors will be an important step in enabling the design of inexpensive

  9. Concealed Explosive Detection

    SBC: PERSONNEL PROTECTION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal entails the development of an innovative technique for detecting the presence of concealed explosives at a safe distance. The specific mission is to deny the armed intruder his/her objective. Our novel active millimeter radar approach offers a low cost solution for long-range detection of a terrorist with concealed explosives and/or short-range detection of someone with a concealed w ...

  10. Handheld Lobster Eye X-Ray Inspection Device

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB041007

    The war against terrorism requires the capability to inspect cargo through the walls of ship and boat compartments. For this purpose, the U.S. Coast Guard is seeking a handheld instrument that can accurately analyze and visualize material hidden from view behind walls and bulkheads. This inspection device must not endanger Coast Guard personnel or hidden illegal migrants, must be simple to operate ...
