The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Tactical Sensor Open Standards Integration

    SBC: BOTTS INNOVATIVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: SOCOM202001

    Botts Innovative Research, Inc (Botts, Inc.) proposes to conduct a feasibility study to assess the art of the possible as it relates to the use of the open source, open standards based OpenSensorHub (OSH) (www.OpenSensorHub.org) for the integration between the sensors and robots of Hyper Enabled Operators (HEO), their units, and their mission command, to provide battlespace awareness at the tactic ...

  2. Learning traffic camera locations using vehicle re-identification

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA201005

    In its effort to provide necessary intelligence and analysis, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) utilizes extensive traffic camera systems. However, the large amount of data overwhelms both analysts and existing processing methods. In order to provide a better understanding and reduce the search space for common problems such as target tracking, it is necessary to extract the camera ...

  3. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  4. Automated Camera Orientation Recovery Software

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: NGA201006

    To address the NGA’s need to fully automate recovery of camera orientation parameters from ground-level imagery, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop new Automated Camera Orientation Recovery Software (ACORS). It is based on a new, multicue combination of algorithms for finding true horizon lines in images. Specifically, the innovation in locating occluded true horizon lines bel ...

  6. PlumeSight: A machine learning based plume identification and classification method for LIDAR instrument data

    SBC: MICHIGAN AEROSPACE CORP            Topic: CBD202002

    LIDAR is a powerful tool for the measurement and characterization of aerosols in the atmosphere. In battlefield environments, a wide variety of aerosol constituents and plume types are present. Traditional LIDAR analysis methods aim to characterize plumes in well controlled environments with a minimum of atmospheric clutter. To extend the abilities of plume characterization and identification in c ...

  7. Eye-readable Solution-based Dye Displacement Probe for Large-area Detection of Opioids

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Bowling Green State University, proposes to develop a field-rugged, eye-readable indicating spray solution that can immediately detect synthetic opioids over a large area of contamination (i.e., military vehicles, individual protective equipment, clandestine labs, etc.). The proposed chemosensor in a spray solution format will detect multipl ...

  8. Handheld Celestial Navigation System

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: SOCOM203002

    Optical Physics Company (OPC) has developed and matured an interferometric star tracker technology which can provide the accuracy required for a Handheld Celestial Navigation System (HCNS) to serve as an alternate when primary GPS systems are denied. Innovative research and development is needed to incorporate this technology with other components into a HCNS which can address the eleven (11) desi ...

  9. Handheld Celestial Navigation System

    SBC: BRIGHT SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM203002

    CelNav systems are currently deployed in aerospace systems, but they depend on unobscured views and relatively smooth and predictable motions over long periods of time. Using these systems for SOCOM ground operations defined by highly variable viewing angles and motion profiles goes well beyond simple adaptation, requiring fundamentally new approaches for select sub-systems associated with primary ...

  10. Handheld Celestial Navigation System

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: SOCOM203002

    Modern navigation systems are heavily reliant on satellites (e.g., GPS, GNSS, GLONASS, etc.) to maintain positional awareness and orientation. These signals are susceptible to intentional disruption, such as jamming or spoofing, and unintentional interruption due to radio frequency interference, signal attenuation caused by local terrain, or satellite malfunctions. Under Phase I of this SBIR, Aret ...
