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: MAYACHITRA, INC. Topic: N14AT008
Thousands of years of evolution have produced the human vision system that computers cannot replicate well. Humans are still unsurpassed in their ability to search for objects in visual scenes. To successfully detect objects in cluttered scenes, the human brain is thought to rely on multiple factors: prior probabilities of object occurrence, global scene statistics and object co-occurrence. Machin ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
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 ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: NGIMAT, LLC Topic: N15AT010
In this STTR effort nGimat will partner with the University of Kentucky to develop a new process for manufacturing scandia-doped tungsten powder for use in vacuum tube cathode devices. While a significant amount of research over the last several decades has shown promise for scandate cathode materials, reliable manufacturing processes that enable commercialization of this technology have remained ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. Topic: N15AT010
Vacuum Process Engineering Inc. in collaboration with the UC Davis millimeter wave research group proposes to develop a large scale production process for nanocomposite scandate tungsten powder for advanced high current density and long life thermionic cathodes that have been previously demonstrated by UC Davis to be superior to the commercially available state-of-the-art. The produced cathodes de ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: FOMS INC. Topic: N15AT014
FOMS Inc. and University of Southern California propose to develop the PRecision Optical Navigation Guidance (PRONG) system to provide continuous, high quality range and bearing data to fixed wing aircraft during landing approach to an aircraft carrier. The PRONG system uses infrared optical communications with advanced modulation and coding to measure range between ship and aircraft with accuracy ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Datanova Scientific LLC Topic: N15AT017
Knowledge graphs are information networks with a specific topology. The topology is simple enough that we do not need graph grammars to specify the subgraphs that belong to a mission graph. Knowledge graphs can be modeled as terms of an algebraic data type in a type system called Flutes. Flutes was created by Datanova Scientific to rigorously analyze formal approaches to semantic integration. This ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: N15AT020
Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to understand social bots behaviors, extract indicators, develop socio-computational models with predictive capabilities to detect bot activity, and implement them in a mature social media analytics software tool. Our approach will use predictive socio-computational models that exploit context, user, friends, temporal, and network features of social medi ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: ADVANCED CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: N15AT016
The Navy is interested in developing hybrid superconducting power transmission cables that would carry at least 5 kA of current and have a current density of at least 35 MA/m2. The cable should be able to carry 30 % of the rated current even when the superconducting cable fails. We propose to develop a hybrid superconducting cable, based on CORC cables, which potentially have a current density of ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control ConditionsSBC: COHERENT TECHNICAL SERVICES, INC. Topic: N15AT014
This research will show how data-capable laser communication retro-reflectors integrated with multispectral image processing can provide extreme reliability positioning suitable for full time automatic landing aboard ship of piloted fixed wing aircraft. The positioning system supports the SALRS long-term objective to reduce or eliminate pilot training to perform manual landing aboard ship includin ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: TAI-YANG RESEARCH CO Topic: N15AT016
To handle the so-called black start fault contingency, Energy to Power Solutions proposes the use of a novel hybrid cable design. The cable would be designed to handle the full 100 % electric power load under normal operating and battle conditions (i.e. a fully/partially functioning cryogenic cooling system operating at cryogenic temperatures ~ 50-60 K), and capable of handling 30 % of the rated p ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseNavy
