The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Polychromic Imaging for Standoff Detection of Explosives and Weapons

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: HSB042005

    Terahertz (THz) radiation imaging and sensing is one of the most promising technologies for standoff detection of concealed threats. New THz sources and detectors are emerging on the commercial market. Existing methods for data processing and image construction, however, are either too cumbersome or fail to provide much of the required data for detecting concealed weapons and explosives. Intellige ...

  2. Plastic-Crystal Composite Scintillator for Multi-Signature Radiation Detection

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: HSB0161012

    We propose to develop the cost effective plastic-crystal composite scintillator that can enable multi-mode detection of gamma rays, fast neutrons, and thermal neutrons. To enable innovation beyond the current state-of-the-art, the proposed easy-to-fabricate-and-integrate composite scintillator will utilize the miniature crystals of CLYC elpasolite embedded into a plastic scintillator framework. Di ...

  3. Photogrammetric Compartment Modeling System

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is critical to prevent terrorists, or other smugglers, from using the spaces, holds, and cargo containers aboard ships and boats, to smuggle contraband into our Nation. To date, most surveillance efforts have focused on vision through the wall systems; surprisingly little attention has been paid to identifying and locating possible hidden areas. A clear identification of these areas could signi ...

  4. Passive multi-view, multi-channel detection of highly obscured targets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA04001

    The goal of this Phase I SBIR is to define a set of algorithms that will detect and characterize static man-made objects highly obscured by foliage within multi-view, multi-channel optical data collected passively from UAVs or other aerial platforms. The proposed algorithm stream will be constructed so as to comprehend and mitigate real-world interfering effects such as clouds, smoke and haze. Dur ...

  5. Orbital Insight Synthetic Data for Computer Vision in Remote Sensing

    SBC: Orbital Insight, Inc.            Topic: NGA201001

    As the Intelligence Community’s experts in geospatial analytics, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has a long-standing interest in conducting research and development in analyzing overhead imagery. With the commercialization of space, the need to analyze greater volumes of imagery much more quickly continues to progress. Fortunately, recent advances in computer vision (CV) have m ...

  8. OPERA: Optimizing a potassium-ion electrolyte for revolutionary automotive batteries

    SBC: Project K Energy, Inc.            Topic: 1

    We propose to develop and commercialize a potassium-ion battery for use in electric vehicles (EVs). The fundamental properties of potassium transport in organic electrolytes allow for fast charging from 0 to 80% capacity in less than 5 minutes. The battery will pair a stable, open-framework cathode based on a Prussian blue analog (PBA) with a conventional graphite anode for a high-performance batt ...

  9. OpenWatch: An Architecture for Scalable Resiliency Assessment

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0161007

    In this project, we propose to develop software that employs open source information to assess a community's resilience and preparedness. The goal is challenging because current technology does not scale well due to the heterogeneity of the problem. Specifically, the heterogeneity of the data, as well as the heterogeneity of the assessment process makes it time-consuming to develop extractors ...

  10. Novel Quantum Dot Assisted Semiconductor Gamma Ray Detector

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB051002

    To address homeland security needs, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Gamma Ray Quantum Dot Semiconductor Heterostructure (GammaDot) sensor system. This compact modular system consists of Pb quantum dot (Q-dot) heterostructure laser module, a photodiode module, and a smart electronics module. The Pb Q-dot laser module consists of a stack of heterostructure lasers, which g ...
