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. Object Cueing Using Biomimetic Approaches to Visual Information Processing

    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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Reliable Manufacturing of Scandia-Doped Tungsten Powders for Thermionic Cathodes

    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 ...

  4. Nanocomposite Scandate Tungsten Powder for High Current Density and Long Life Thermionic Cathodes

    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 ...

  5. Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control Conditions

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: N15AT014

    This proposal describes an all optical fixed wing landing system for a aircraft carrier capable of flying an aircraft all the way to landing in a RF denied environment. The precision, reliability and accuracy of this system will allow control the aircraft without the help from the pilot all the way to touch down. It will work seamlessly with UAVs and manned aircraft that have been retrofitted with ...

  6. Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control Conditions

    SBC: 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 ...

  7. Precision Optical Navigation Guidance System (PRONG)

    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 ...

  8. Hybrid High Ampacity Electric Power Cable

    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 ...

  9. Novel Approach to Hybrid High Temperature Superconducting Cable

    SBC: TAI-YANG RESEARCH COMPANY            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 ...

  10. Type System for Naval Essential Tasks

    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 ...
