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. Mitigation of USV Motions via Wave Sensing and Prediction

    SBC: VECTOR CONTROLS, INC.            Topic: N10AT036

    A boat’s coxswain is adept at analyzing the wave environment, adjusting the craft’s propulsion system and control surfaces to mitigate its motions and reduce the chance of capsizing. There is a significant predictive component in the coxswain’s control decisions. Unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) lack the benefit of a highly trained coxswain reading and predicting oncoming waves - existing au ...

  2. Automated Linguistic Analysis Revealing Misrepresentation and Messaging (ALARMM)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: N10AT029

    The proposed Automated Linguistic Analysis Revealing Misrepresentation and Messaging (ALARMM) system significantly advances the state of the art in detecting deception in unstructured data such as Web sites and chat messages. Our research focuses on automated techniques based on linguistic theory that can detect both misrepresentations and hidden messages. The proposed work draws on the field of s ...

  3. Solariton: Solar Energy Generation using Plasmon Cavities on Organic Solar Cells

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF09BT39

    Solar cell technology is a promising alternative energy source. Present challenges for viable solar technology include decreasing material cost (using thin-film organic polymers), increasing production (using printing processes), and increasing the efficiency. Surface plasmon organic solar cells address these challenges. Surface-plasmons provide confinement in thin-film solar cells and allow for w ...

  5. Preserving Navigation Access for the War Fighter Development of an Acoustic Marine Life Watch System to Support Corps Channel Maintenance and Enhanc

    SBC: SOFAR Acoustics, LLC            Topic: A12aT025

    This effort is focused on establishing U.S. Army Corps leadership in preserving navigation access for the war fighter through the development and implementation of an acoustic-based sensor system to detect, track, and classify large aquatic animals. The proposed high frequency imaging active sonar system is configurable to detect, track, classify, and alert to the presence of threatened and endang ...

  6. Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT009

    The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...

  7. Social Media Analysis and Reasoning Tool (SMART)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: A12aT009

    The proliferation of social media technologies has provided a promising new source of information for intelligence analysts. Effective use of this data could provide insight into the evolution of social networks, identification of communication patterns that lead to events of interest, and analysis of relevant socio-cultural factors and trends. However, intelligence analysts frequently have diffic ...

  8. Feature-Aided RF/IR Track Correlation

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: MDA12T001

    Missile tracking sensors such as radar and EO/IR are often called upon to track constellations of multiple closely spaced objects, and recognize pairs of matching tracks from each sensor"s view. The outcome of this track correlation process is crucial for missile defense interceptors, as any failure to identify matches with certainty, for example because of an excessive number of tracks associate ...
