The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.
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.
SBC: AccessData Corporation Topic: HSB071006
Increasing complexity of encryption used by criminals presents an ongoing challenge to law enforcement agencies. Effective code breaking attack methods have been developed for attacking many of the cryptosystems used by criminals, however, frequently attacking these files requires mammoth amounts of CPU power achieved only through the coordinated effort of hundreds or thousands of computers. Acces ...SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: CYBERNET SYSTEMS CORPORATION Topic: HSB0122004
Ruggedized electronics can be costly; utilizing commercial-grade hand-held computing/communication device and combining with well-designed case can provide ruggedization (impact, temperature, moisture) and extend capabilities such as integrated inclusion of smartcard/CAC readers, biometrics, and advanced barcode scanners. This program will determine the requirements for ruggedizing a device and us ...SBIR Phase I 2012 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: Xandem Technology LLC Topic: HSB0131001
This SBIR Phase I project will investigate the possibility of using a network of low-cost, battery-powered radio frequency (RF) transceivers to detect, localize and track the movements of people illegally trying to enter the US borders through wooded areas. The system uses radio tomography (RT), i.e., the changes in radio signal strength (RSS) measurements on the static links of the network over t ...SBIR Phase I 2013 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: TrellisWare Technologies, Inc. Topic: HSB0131001
Perhaps because it is the world's longest undefended border, smuggling is endemic across the our northern frontier with Canada. Since a 5,525 mile border cannot be effectively patrolled on foot, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) must rely on technology to detect and track smugglers. Radio tomographic imaging (RTI) is an emerging device-free passive (DfP) localization technology that could ...SBIR Phase I 2013 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: NANOSD, INC. Topic: DEFOA0001429
NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...SBIR Phase I 2016 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: QUANTUM APPLIED SCIENCE & RESEARCH INC Topic: N/A
The primary cause of mortality in firefighters is cardiovascular disease, which accounts for 45% of fatalities among personnel on duty. Although physiological monitoring devices have existed for decades, their use on subjects during strenuous activities (such as firefighting) has been significantly limited due to excessive signal artifacts and extremely low user compliance arising from the invasiv ...SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: Empower Semiconductor Incorporated Topic: DEFOA0001736
Empower Semiconductor has developed a resonant integrated voltage regulator (IVR) technology that can dramatically improve the energy efficiency of any digital CMOS IC. As Moore’s law has advanced, the plexity and power needs of digital ICs has grown dramatically. The voltages required by these ICs have lowered and the resulting voltage accuracy needs have become more stringent. Existing voltage ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: TWELVE BENEFIT CORPORATION Topic: DEFOA0001563
Cost-effective electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) in the atmosphere, is the holy grail of green chemistry. Using only water and electricity as other inputs, ECO2R has been demonstrated to produce ethanol with pure oxygen as a co-product. Ethanol is a versatile fuel that can be used in fuel cells, reformed to make hydrogen, or burned in an internal combustion engine. Ethanol produced from air ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: Physical Optics Corporation Topic: HSB0181002
To address the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) need for a cell phone location finder for maritime and remote search and rescue (SAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new REmote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue (REPLIER). REPLIER leverages novel techniques recently developed at POC to extend the range of cellular communications and integrate commercial cellu ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: PreID Inc. Topic: HSB0161010
The Internet and mobile technologies has brought on a rapid transition from doing business "in-person" to remote. Knowing the identity of the individual at this other end of the wire is at the very foundation of trust and security of this new world. Traditional methods to prove identity, such as driver's licenses, were designed for "in-person" use, not the digital economy. Instead, the Internet ...SBIR Phase I 2016 Department of Homeland Security
