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. Autonomous Landing at Unprepared Sites for a Cargo Unmanned Air System

    SBC: Data Flux Systems Inc.            Topic: N10AT039

    We propose to design, develop, implement, simulate, and demonstrate an autonomous control and sensing system for the safe vertical landing of autonomous aerial cargo delivery system (ACDS). The landing site is expected to be unprepared mountain sides with slopes up to 15 degrees and rough terrain containing rocks and brush. We also plan to reduce the amount of ground equipment required to operate ...

  2. Automating the Application of Deception Detection Heuristics to Unstructured Data

    SBC: STOTTLER HENKE ASSOCIATES, INC            Topic: N10AT029

    We propose to construct a deception detection system which will exploit scaffolding provided by a collection of largely domain-independent deception detection heuristics. These heuristics, integrated through a novel evidential reasoning system, will provide the proposed system, called Skeptic, with a significant advantage over purely inductive methods by allowing it to exploit the adversarial natu ...

  3. Autonomous Landing at Unprepared Sites for a Cargo Unmanned Air System

    SBC: SYNETICS SYSTEMS ENGINEERING CORP.            Topic: N10AT039

    A rapid prototyping simulation for the Autonomous Rotorcraft Land & Take-Off (ARLTO) system will be developed to analyze and evolve requirements for the landing and take-off of a Rotary-wing Autonomous Air Vehicle (RAAV) from unprepared terrain. The simulation is based upon the Task-Pilot-Vehicle modeling system and features a UH-60 configured with a Sliding Mode Control (SCM) inner loop closure. ...

  4. Mathematically Rigorous Methods for Determining Software Quality

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT035

    Current software development and testing methodologies are inadequate for validating software in mission-critical applications. As Dijstra famously stated: "testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence." When lives and national security is at stake, there is a need for mathematically rigorous techniques that can verify the absence of bugs. We propose to devel ...

  5. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: KAPTEYN-MURNANE LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N10AT012

    We propose to design a high average power Er:Fiber ultrafast laser system which is pumped at 14xxnm, and at the same time solve other problems related to ultrashort pulses in fiber lasers. The advantage of using 14xxnm pumping is the reduction of the standard quantum defect from 37% to 5%, thus greatly reducing the thermal load on the system, which makes it inherently more efficient. We also inten ...

  6. Advanced Real Time Battery Monitoring and Management System

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORP            Topic: N10AT013

    TSC and Purdue University will demonstrate a lab prototype of software and hardware capable of doing high speed monitoring of a Lithium-Ion cell. This monitoring needs to be specifically designed to predict failures. When a predictive failure is indicated a defensive countermeasure needs to be implemented. Our specific project goals are to: 1) Select a Lithium-Ion battery that consists of multiple ...

  7. Photonic Switched True Time Delay (TTD) Beam Forming Network

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: N08T007

    Photonic links and networks offer numerous advantages to analog RF systems including inherent wide bandwidth, a reduced size, weight and improved flexibility, and nearly lossless signal. Current all-electronic delay line systems based on microwave components suffer from high signal loss and dispersion as well as large size and weight. An efficient way to achieve true-time-delay beamforming is to u ...

  8. Demonstration of a JP-8 Powered Compact ECU

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: OSD09T002

    Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...

  9. Innovative Application of Urban ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) Imagery for High Fidelity Training Devices

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N09BT038

    Toyon Research Corporation and Brown University propose to develop a complete real-time software solution which ingests multi-sensor ISR imagery and produces geo-specific, realistic simulated imagery for flight simulators and training devices. The technical innovations enabling this solution include fully automated 3-d model construction from sequences of ISR video frames, and geo-registration of ...

  10. Innovative Application of Urban ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) Imagery for High Fidelity Training Devices

    SBC: AECHELON TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N09BT038

    Military operations in urban areas have increasingly become a key capability for our armed forces. The increased risk of use of the unique nature of large urban environments by hostile forces to their tactical advantage, and related civilian casualties, requires updated procedures, comprehensive training, and constantly evolving capabilities. Current training technologies fail to address the signi ...
