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 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 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. A Cryogenic Heat Transport Loop for Space-Borne Gimbaled Instruments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "A high-performance cooling system for gimbal-mounted infrared sensors is a critical need for future space-based target acquisition and tracking systems. The optimal approach uses a high performance cryocooler remotely located on the spacecraft platformcombined with a high conductance, cryogenic heat transport system to exchange heat from the sensors to the cryocooler. The heat transport system ...

  2. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop and test a novel chemical atomic iodine laser based on vibrational to electronic (V-E) energy transfer. We will develop and exercise a detailed kinetic model to assist in the design of experiments that willalso be part of the Phase I effort. We will develop a unique device that would couple a PSI 5 kW Microwave Driven Jet (MIDJet) to a chemical f ...

  3. Advanced Tracking through Remote Supervision

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Target recognition and tracking requires the solution of several hard problems. A target signature must be identified in sensor data, this data must be associated with prior information on the target, and the association must be used to gain understandingof the target. In the presence of countermeasures and clutter, each of these components is computationally onerous even when using suboptimal ...

  4. Affordable Composites for Corrosion Protection of High-Value Test and Evaluation Assets

    SBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Triton Systems, Inc. (TSI) proposes to develop affordable, corrosion resistant (CR), composite structural materials to protect high-value assets at remote test facilities. The use of virtually corrosion-free polymer matrix composites to cost-effectivelyproduce structures and structural components, shelters, radomes, and antenna support structures will greatly reduce life cycle maintenance costs ...

  5. Agile Engagement Planning: Integrating Decision Graphs with Stochastic Dynamic Programming Solvers

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Missile Defense Engagement Planning systems are highly automated. It is the system developers, not the commanders of those systems, who are formulating the engagement planning problem and thereby deciding how engagements will be planned and executed. Inthe history of warfare system developers have never trumped commanders in deciding how a system will carry out orders, and this reversal of affair ...

  6. A Heterointegrated InGaAs 40Gb Optoelectronic Cross Bar Receiver E- IR (> 0.9 microns)


    "Advances in EO sensors and fiber optic information distribution systems havesimplified the distribution of targeting information among the varioussystems. The requirements for higher levels of functionality and performanceare pushing the levels of integration to a point that can no longer besatisfied by the industry mainstay approach of hybrid assembly. Significantimprovements in fiber-optic syst ...

  7. All-optical Switch Actuated by Optical Data

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "All-optical switches capable of rapidly switching light with light are needed for missile defense in the Airborne-Laser, Space-Based Laser and Space-Based Infrared System as well as in Big Safari special mission aircraft. While the commercial and militaryusefulness of optical-electrical-optical switches for security, recognition and switching applications is well established, these devices are s ...

  8. Auction Based Approaches to Distributed Sensor Management

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "In the proposal, we will extend ALPHATECH's dynamic programming based approach to sensor resource management so that it can control a network of heterogeneous sensors. To reduce the complexity of the problem to a manageable level, the system will employ ahierarchical approach and will assume that processing occurs in a single centralized node. The algorithm proposed will decompose the problem int ...

  9. BMDO 014A- Novel System for Bulk Growth of Semi-Insulating SiC

    SBC: CAPESYM INC            Topic: N/A

    "It is proposed to develop a novel growth system capable of producing large diameter and long Semi-Insulating SiC crystals. The proposed system aims to achieve semi-insulating properties in the crystal by reducing the impurity levels in the reactorassociated with the graphite containment elements. The proposed growth system is based on using gas precursors instead of SiC powder, and uses a nove ...
