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. Identification of Multiple Illicit Drugs Using a Handheld Detector Based on Chemiresitive Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16AT008

    Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. Novel sensing materials, with enhanced chemical sensit ...

  2. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...

  3. Revolutionary Airlift Innovation

    SBC: LOGISTIC GLIDERS INC.            Topic: ST14B004

    We propose to mature LG-X glider technology by manufacturing full-scaled prototypes and characterizing them in land-based flight-testing by using commercial aircraft to drop the gliders. Validated components such as the landing parachute, folding wing mechanism, and autopilot control system will undergo integrated flight-testing. Logistic Gliders will provide a considerable cost share to support ...

  4. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  6. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: MINERVA SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...

  7. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: OTHER LAB, INC.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...

  8. Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM Applications

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...
