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. Paper test cards for detection of illicit narcotic and cannabinioid drugs

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    Vuronyx Technologies and Prof. Marya Lieberman at the University of Notre Dame will develop paper analytical devices (idPADs) to presumptively identify illicit drugs. All the reagents needed to perform twelve different chemical color tests are stored on the idPAD. The user rubs the powder to be tested across the PAD, then dips the PAD in water to activate the tests. Within five minutes, a color ...

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

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc            Topic: A16AT004

    White River Technologies, Inc. (WRT) and University of Vermont (UVM) present this proposal, "Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines". Among the primary gaps in our current landmine detection technology base is the ability to detect a wide range of buried explosive hazards including emerging low-metal mines and improvised explosive devices ...

  3. Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR)

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: A16AT011

    NadirSAR imaging offers a means to detect targets in challenging environments. TSC and SDL propose to leverage the work we have already performed for RRTO to develop and demonstrate a NadirSAR imaging technique at X-band. TSCs baseline technique exploits range resolution for height and performs SAR Tomographic processing around a circular flight path to obtain resolution in the ground plane. Measu ...

  4. Rotorcraft External Far-Field Noise Measurement Using a Hot-Air Balloon

    SBC: DELTA GROUP INTERNATIONAL LLC            Topic: A14AT001

    An innovative and fundamental approach to measure far field noise of a helicopter using a hot-air balloon as an acoustic measurement platform is described. The technique, featuring a microphone suspended beneath the basket of a hot-air balloon, is used to obtain acoustic data above, in, and below the horizon plane of a helicopter in forward flight. This approach is postulated to have many advantag ...

  5. Soft and Elastomeric Intramuscular Electrode with Therapeutic Delivery Capability

    SBC: TDA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A13AT019

    Approximately 5-6% of military injuries involve some form of major peripheral nerve injury that has little chance of spontaneous healing. Currently these injuries lead to major impairment of voluntary muscle function in the limbs and extremities, making tasks of walking, reaching, grasping, etc. very difficult or impossible for many patients. Focusing therapeutic treatments to segmental nerve in ...

  6. Tunable High-Power Infrared Lasers for Standoff Detection Applications

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: A14AT015

    To achieve the goals of this program improving spectral coverage and output power of monolithic QCL sources - we propose to develop in collaboration with MIT Lincoln Laboratory a broadly tunable high power source that is based on Eos proprietary QCL array technology. The current generation of Eos commercially available fully packaged QCLAs (The Matchbox) can be tuned over a wavelength range of u ...

  7. Conductive Transmissive Coating for Enhanced-Absorption Thin Film Solar Cells

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A15AT016

    Thin-film, lightweight, large-area flexible inorganic solar cells have shown promise to meet the militarys remote power needs on the battlefield. However, thin film solar cells normally have inferior conversion efficiencies due to limited absorption of sunlight by the thin active layer. Various approaches have been investigated to improve conversion efficiencies of thin film solar cells. Among the ...

  8. Technologies for Rare Earths Enrichment of a Novel Low-Cost Raw Material

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: OSD12T01

    A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...

  9. Nanostructured conductive transparent coatings

    SBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A15AT016

    Triton Systems, Inc. and its academic partner are proposing to fabricate an innovative highly conductive and transmissive thin layer to replace ITO on large area, lightweight solar cells. Part of the proposed approach will be to texture the surface of the coating to improve light transmission into the solar cell. Triton will work with a manufacturer of flexible solar panels for the Army, who wil ...

  10. Energy Harvesting Fabric

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: A15AT017

    A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...
