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. In Situ Inspection of Additive Manufactured Metallic Parts Using Laser Ultrasonics

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N15AT008

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...

  3. Computational Methods for Dynamic Scene Reconstruction

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH OPCO, LLC            Topic: N16AT017

    Reconstruction of dynamic scenes is at the limits of the state of the art. It is still challenging to accurately reconstruct models in static scenes. Dynamic scenes add a list of challenges that further complicate the problem:separating the dynamic objects from the motion created by the camera motionMorphological changes to the dynamic object itself. Not only is the system moving, but it is actual ...

  7. Proactive Contextual Decision Support for Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: N13AT020

    Current decision tools often omit important situational context. Unfortunately, this can lead to dangerous and costly errors, as context drives decision making. For example, in operational navigation planning tasks, decisions must be made that rely on multiple information sources of different fidelities and uncertainties. Furthermore, after obtaining additional information the necessity for replan ...
