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. Small Sample Size Semi-Supervised Feature Clustering for Detection and Classification of Objects and Activities in Still and Motion Multi-spectral Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT35

    Toyon Research Corp. and the Penn State Univ. propose research and development of innovative algorithms for classifying objects and activities observed in high-dimensional data extracted from multi-sensor motion imagery. The proposed algorithms include novel feature clustering techniques to enable effective characterization of intra-class and inter-class appearance variations in datasets containin ...

  2. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Adaptive optics (AO) system performance is hindered by the mechanical limits of the deformable mirror (DM), namely stroke limits, interactuator stroke limits, and mechanical resonance.The nature of the multi-in multi-out (MIMO) control system does not lend itself well to notch filters to combat the mechanical resonances, and the stroke limits introduce non-linearities to the system.The traditional ...

  3. STAN: Scene and Target Analysis Network

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF18AT014

    The introduction of computer vision in precision-guided ammunition will potentially increase their targeting capabilities, in particular for moving targets such as tanks, vehicles and mobile command posts. EO/IR cameras offer a relatively inexpensive, low-SWaP payload solution which, combined with latest advances in SIMD hardware (GPUs), are finally starting to allow running sophisticated visual g ...

  4. Subspace Tracking and Manifold Learning Based Heterogeneous Data Fusion for Unexpected Event Discovery

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF16AT12

    We aim to develop data-driven heterogeneous data fusion approaches for unanticipated event/target detection, which will be more robust and immune to model mismatch problems encountered by model-based approaches. Considering the low intrinsic dimensionality of the sensor data, we propose several data-level fusion approaches based on some state-of-the-art dimensionality reduction techniques. For lin ...

  5. Sun-Tracking Millimeter Wave Radiometer

    SBC: PROSENSING INC.            Topic: AF17CT01

    This Phase I STTR proposal describes the development of a dual frequency millimeter-wave sun tracking radiometer designed to measure total atmospheric attenuation from ground level to the top of the atmosphere.The suns brightness temperature, which is on the order of 10,000K at millimeter-wavelengths, provides an ideal background reference allowing high dynamic range estimation of total atmospheri ...

  6. Sun-Tracking Millimeter Wave Radiometer

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & SPACE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: AF17CT01

    The Air Force is seeking solutions for a sun-tracking millimeter wave radiometer to measure atmospheric attenuation over a high dynamic range. The V- and W- bands have rarely been used for space communications and telemetry applications, but rapidly increasing government and commercial bandwidth needs will require future solutions within these bands. Our team, comprised of experienced scientists, ...

  7. Target Tracking via Deep Learning

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: AF17AT027

    To address the challenge of long-term tracking, through extended occlusions and significant appearance changes, we propose to continue developing DC-CAT, a Deep Convolutional neural network (CNN) based Confuser-Aware high value target (HVT) Tracker.The DC-CAT system combines a state-of-the-art CNN-based adaptive HVT tracker with a CNN-based pre-trained generic target detector, in a deep-feature-ai ...

  8. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Two variants of laser-based Rayleigh scattering will be investigated, each of wh...

  9. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Multiple Sheet Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (MSFRS) will be developed, which enables a series of two-dimensional images to be rapidly obtained making up a volumetric image while suppressing background scattering from wind tunn ...

  10. Universal Multivariate Information Measures for Multisensor Inference (UMIMMI)

    SBC: BOSTON FUSION CORP            Topic: AF16AT29

    Automatic target recognition (ATR)the identification of a potential target based on signatures in sensor datais fundamentally a question of information content. While ATR has been studied for decades, it remains a challenge because multifarious tar...
