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. Decision Support for Operators of Fully Autonomous Systems using RESTORE: Robust Execution System for Trusted Operation in Relevant Environments

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: N18BT032

    SSCI and MIT (Prof. Julie Shah) propose to develop and test a system that provides real-time assurance and trust in decisions made by autonomous collaborating vehicles. The proposed system is referred to as the RESTORE and represents a decision support tool which facilitates decision making by the operator in cases when decisions by the Collaborative Autonomy (CA) system results in deviations from ...

  2. TRACE – Target Recognition with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N18BT033

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes the design and implementation of the Target Recognition with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence (TRACE) system that incorporates classical model-based target classification and identification approaches with data-driven machine learning solutions to improve the target classification accuracy. The outcome of the TRACE systems is a set of machine lea ...

  3. Low Cost Magnetic Sensor for Mine Neutralizer Identification and Charge Placement

    SBC: QUSPIN INC.            Topic: N17AT013

    Optically pumped magnetometers provide very high performance but they cost tens of thousands of dollars, and they are large and power hungry. Recently we successfully developed and commercialized laser pumped magnetometers with size, weight and power consumption that is an order of magnitude below current state-of-the-art without sacrificing performance. In this project, the focus will be on produ ...

  4. Development of Explosive Non-Acoustic Sensing on Remotely Operated Vehicles for Littoral Threat Characterization in Complex Seabed Environments

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc            Topic: N17AT015

    White River Technologies, Inc. proposes this effort involving non-acoustic sensing methods and sensor fusion technologies to detect and characterize seabed objects of interest in littoral environments relevant to US Naval activities. Current and evolving threats to maritime dominance require the Navy to adapt to potential hazards from a variety of sources, which could include terrorism, and to ope ...

  5. CRANE: Cervical Readiness Using Analytics and Non-Invasive Evaluation

    SBC: APTIMA INC            Topic: DHA18B001

    Current cervical spine assessment methodologies are focused on subjective measures (i.e. pain reports) and range-of-motion (ROM) measures that only measure maximum head excursion and reach, but not dynamic motion. Due to report bias and existing incentive

  6. Cervical Spine Health Improvement Products

    SBC: SWITCHBOX INC            Topic: DHA18B001

    Most standard-of-care tools and techniques for evaluating neck disorders are subjective, unreliable, and do not provide actionable information for providers, payers, and organizations to deliver efficient and effective care. This lack of objective neck he

  7. Out-of-Oven Aerospace Composites

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: N18BT031

    Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...

  8. Carbon Nanotube-Based Heater Coatings for Processing of Thermosetting and Thermoplastic Composites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N18BT031

    For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...

  9. Scalable Manufacturing of Composite Components Using Nanostructured Heaters

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT031

    Manufacturing of structural composites traditionally employs autoclaves to achieve high quality parts, including high fiber-volume-fractions and low porosity. A laminate comprised of stacked prepreg plies are cured under a vacuum in addition to ~7 bar of pressure to prevent formation of voids, particulalry in interlaminar (inter-sheet/ply) regions. However, manufacturing composites within an autoc ...

  10. The Enhanced Navy Simulation of the Extended MBL Environment (ENSEMBLE) Toolkit

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: N17AT018

    The recent emergence of many new ocean-transiting military and domestic security threats has led to a growing need within the Department of Defense in general and within the Department of the Navy in particular for improved methods for estimating the electromagnetic vulnerability to visual/electro-optical/infrared/radar systems. Accurate characterization of the marine boundary layer (MBL) in the v ...
