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. 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) ...

  3. Graphical Methods for Discovering Structure and Context in Large Datasets

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: NGA203005

    The ubiquity of image sensors for data collection creates a glut of data, which leads to bottlenecks in the processing capabilities of modern systems. In order to process this data, meticulously labeled datasets are required and that must be reviewed by humans in order to guarantee state-of-the-art performance. In this effort we endeavor to create a system that can automatically exploit salient in ...
