Description

The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking proposals for a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program with a focus on the topic of "Context Aware Data Stream Pre-processor for Time-Sensitive Applications". The objective of this solicitation is to develop a general context aware, self-learning pre-processing solution for resolving high throughput Radio Frequency (RF) data streams across distributed systems with resource limitations. The technology advancements are required to efficiently allocate limited resources for further analysis of the highest value data in time-sensitive applications. The pre-processor should be able to determine what data should be stored, processed immediately, and how to allocate system resources accordingly. The solution should be generalizable and scalable across distributed, heterogeneous systems in the RF domain. The project will be conducted in two phases, with Phase I focusing on defining and developing a concept framework, and Phase II involving the development and validation of a prototype pre-processing solution. The Phase III will involve the integration of the pre-processor into multiple domain-specific, time-sensitive applications. The deadline for proposal submission is June 12, 2024. More information can be found on the grants.gov website.

DOD SBIR 24.4 Annual - Software Defined RadioHead (SDRH)
Department of Defense
The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking proposals for the topic of "Software Defined RadioHead (SDRH)" as part of their SBIR 24.4 Annual solicitation. The objective is to develop a radio agnostic SDRH system that can rapidly adapt the radio carrier frequency among diverse targeted frequency bands using analog and/or digital frequency conversion. This technology will provide additional flexibility to the commander's communication plan. The SDRH design will be a flexible antenna prototype capable of supporting multiple frequencies and radio modules, complementing the C5ISR/CMOSS standard's objective for agnostic hardware. The solicitation is open for Direct to Phase II (DP2) proposals with a maximum cost of $2,000,000 for a 12-month period of performance. Phase II will involve developing a prototype SDRH for evaluation and testing by the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) C5ISR Center. The solicitation also highlights potential dual-use applications of SDRH technology in industries such as IoT, UAVs, smart cities, and mobile communications. The deadline for proposal submission is March 31, 2025.

DOD SBIR 24.4 Annual - Ensuring Sensor Data Security and Integrity
Department of Defense
The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking proposals for the topic "Ensuring Sensor Data Security and Integrity" as part of its SBIR program. The objective of this topic is to develop a platform that secures sensor data at the individual record level and supports experimentation to advance technology for DoD and Army Data Strategy VAULTIS goals. The platform should be cost-effective, flexible, and implemented through an Application Programming Interface (API) with no data size limitation. It should also ensure the integrity of sensor data throughout its lifecycle and incorporate attributes such as encryption, immutable data storage, audit and logging, and tamper-proof chain of custody. The Army aims to become more data-centric and capable of conducting operations in contested environments. The project will be conducted in two phases, with Direct to Phase II (DP2) proposals accepted for a cost of up to $2,000,000 for an 18-month period of performance. The contractor will be responsible for integrating, testing, demonstrating, and delivering a lightweight and scalable prototype data provenance solution. The solution should secure all sensor data at the individual record level and include database, replication, data audit, and encryption in a single integrated solution. It should also incorporate knowledge graphs, analytic visualization tools, and support data analysis. The use of blockchain technology is highlighted as a potential dual-use application for protecting sensor data fidelity in various sectors such as healthcare, critical infrastructure, smart homes, and autonomous vehicles. The project references the Army's data plan and strategic goals for 2040. The deadline for proposal submission is March 31, 2025.

DOD SBIR 24.4 Annual - Algorithms for Modular Remote Expendable Sensor Array
Department of Defense
The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking proposals for the topic "Algorithms for Modular Remote Expendable Sensor Array" as part of their SBIR 24.4 Annual solicitation. The objective of this research is to develop and mature decision logic and signal processing approaches for modular, configurable, remotely deployable sensing capabilities for surveillance, targeting, or chemical hazard sensing. The technology will enable maneuver elements to have situational understanding of adversary actions and threat conditions in their areas of operation. The research will focus on the development of decision logic at the sensor node and sensor array fusion node to reduce raw data into actionable decision supportive information. The project will be conducted in three phases: Phase I involves developing a conceptual analytical approach, Phase II focuses on developing and demonstrating a prototype set of multi-modal algorithms, and Phase III involves refining and ruggedizing the system and integrating it into a representative Army network. The starting Technology Readiness Level (TRL) on completion of the SBIR Phase III execution period should be TRL6 or greater. The project duration is 24 months, and funding specifics can be found on the grants.gov website.
