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. Robust moving target handoff in GPS-denied environments

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT34

    ABSTRACT: Over the past decade, there has been a sustained interest in Global Positioning System (GPS) denied navigation technologies for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). This has been primarily due to the well accepted susceptibility of GPS signals to intentional jamming or unintentional interference and blockage. One of the challenging problems in GPS-denied navigation is handing off moving targ ...

  3. 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...

  4. Closed-Loop Extracranial Activation using Reinforcement-learning (CLEAR)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: AF17BT002

    Increased workloads and operational pressures can degrade human analysts cognitive performance, jeopardizing their ability to safely and effectively carry out mission-critical tasks. To avoid overload and maximize the potential of human operators, a method for conducting real-time evaluation of cognitive state, combined with means to dynamically enhance performance, is required. Novel technologies ...

  5. Transparent Non-Cubic Ceramics Using Magnetic Fields to Control Microstructural Orientation

    SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC.            Topic: AF14AT26

    ABSTRACT: This effort is a close collaboration between RMD and Alfred University. Our goal is to develop a process for producing optical ceramics with properties approaching or exceeding single crystals. Ceramic processing can provide enhanced performance, lower cost, higher yield, relaxed constraints on size and shape, and materials that are difficult or impossible to grow as crystals. We will ...

  6. Heterogeneous Data Discovery Using Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: KickView Corporation            Topic: AF16AT12

    Improving feature extraction, event detection, and target classification in multi-sensor systems requires new mathematical methods and processing techniques. In addition, previous research and experience suggests that leveraging sensor data that has not experienced significant dimensionality reduction can preserve subtle features when processed jointly with other relevant data. However, traditiona ...

  7. Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution

    SBC: FUSE INTEGRATION, INC.            Topic: AF17BT003

    Currently networks are not taking advantage of the inherent benefits of high multi-beam directional networking. For example, the current MADL implementation simply daisy chains the nodes in the network creating multiple single points of network failure (of course retaining self-healing properties.) The Fuse Directional Cross-Layer Networking Solution (DCLNS) optimized architecture features a robus ...
