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. 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 ...

  2. Structured Stories for MOVINT

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA203001

    Arete will integrate the Mover Intelligence Extraction Engine with the Social Structured Framework (SSF) to produce a capability to generate narratives of MOVINT track data with context derived from associated Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other foundation data. The Extraction Engine will be derived from the Arete Cognitive Behavior Classifier (CBC) to characterize MOVINT tracks into co ...

  3. A Multiphysics Approach to Radio Frequency Modeling of Ablators in Ionized Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: NGA203002

    ATA Engineering, Inc., (ATA) proposes to develop and demonstrate a multiphysics framework for the radar cross-section (RCS) analysis of an ablating hypersonic vehicle in an ionized plasma flow field. ATA has developed a software toolset, known as the Multiphysics Engine, capable of modeling many of these hypersonic phenomena. It couples state-of-the-art solvers for CFD (Loci/CHEM), ablation (CHAR) ...

  4. Enhanced Modeling and Simulations of Hypersonics

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: NGA203002

    Endo-atmospheric flight at hypersonic speeds creates an extraordinarily harsh aerothermal environment which may lead to the formation of an ionized plasma layer around some parts of the vehicle. Free electrons in this plasma layer are formed via a combination of collisional ionization and oxidative reactions with carbon products and contaminants. From the perspective of electromagnetic interaction ...

  5. Topological Data Analysis for Automated Annotation of EO/SAR Datasets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA203005

    In recent years, it has become increasingly important to conduct Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) operation via commercial and government persistent sensor systems, which have produced a copious amount of data relevant to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). As the supply of data expands, it is necessary to employ automated analytics to exploit the data efficiently. We cannot rely on ...

  6. Algorithm Performance Evaluation with Low Sample Size

    SBC: SIGNATURE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: NGA20C001

    The team of Signature Research, Inc. and Michigan Technological University will develop and demonstrate methods and metrics to evaluate the performance of machine learning-based computer vision algorithms with low numbers of samples of labeled EO imagery. We will use the existing xView panchromatic dataset to demonstrate a proof-of-concept set of tools. If successful, in Phase II, we will extend t ...

  7. Positioning, Navigation and Timing for Target Acquisition

    SBC: INTELLISENSE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: SOCOM203001

    To address the USSOCOM’s need for a non-GPS and optically agnostic solution to navigation and targeting, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (Intellisense) proposes to develop a new Celestial-Assured Navigation (CelNav) software system based on a novel integration of celestial navigation, information theory, and computer vision. CelNav uses a clock, deep learning, celestial charts, and celestial tracking ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
