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 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. Utilizing ML Algorithms to Track and Identify UAS Threats


    Frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) lidar is the optimal solution for cost-appropriate ground-based imaging and discrimination of small UAS at the 3 km range. In this effort Polaris will first design and assess various FMCW lidar system configurations for SOCOM’s use case. Second, Polaris will employ an innovative approach to machine learning (ML) in which innovative techniques which offe ...

  2. Unmanned Autonomous Vehicle Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Payload Interface Master Module, PIMM

    SBC: VIPMobile, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05005

    Significant advances have been made in sensor development, unmanned air platforms, and electronics system performance. However SOF tactical teams often do not receive near real time imagery intelligence and other sensor data relating to their area of operations. The objective of this project is to design and prove the feasibility of building a light weight, rugged, and low cost payload interface ...

  3. Universal Active Noise Patch Cancellation

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: SOCOM09005

    To address the SOCOM need for an active noise cancellation system for thrust motor controllers, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Universal Active Noise Patch Cancellation (UANPAC) system based on a multifold active reduction patch (MARP) as a smart-skin-type acoustic actuator and an adaptive time-varying controller (ATVC) as a real-time adaptive ANC controller. The UANP ...

  4. Uncooled Imaging Spectrometer for Plume detection

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: CBD09108

    Based on the CONOPS for gas plume detection, and the performance constraints of uncooled cameras, we propose to develop a dispersive scanning spectrometer, based on OKSI’s HyperScan and HyperSWIR family of scanning sensors. Not all uncooled cameras are equal, and not all exhibit the required characteristics for operating in spectral imaging systems under low flux environment. OKSI proposes to ...

  5. Ultra Low Latency Burst-Mode Digital Imaging System

    SBC: Silicon Micro Display, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM15003

    A burst-mode optical sensor to display architecture that allows for dynamic control over the system latency is proposed. The overall system latency of current digital imaging systems are determined and limited by the utilized video interconnection standards and the frame rates of optical sensor, image processor, and displays. In order to reduce the global system latency, an overhaul of image extra ...

  6. Ultrafast Gas Curtain and Wire-Reinforced X-Ray Window Debris Shields


    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop two components of a three-component, survivable debris shield for large area test exposures to cold (1-5keV) x-rays. These elements also have commercial potential in accelerators and in radiography. The elements are: an ultrafast gas curtain designed to be located close to the x-ray source to deflect plasma debris as well as ~um siz ...

  8. Topological Data Analysis for Automated Annotation of EO/SAR Datasets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA203005

    In recent years, it has become increasingly important to conduct Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) operation via commercial and government persistent sensor systems, which have produced a copious amount of data relevant to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). As the supply of data expands, it is necessary to employ automated analytics to exploit the data efficiently. We cannot rely on ...

  9. Thermal Infrared Surface Contamination Sensor


    A thermal infrared imaging spectrometer is proposed for the remote detection of surface contaminants. The instrument will use pulsing lasers to vaporize liquidswhile it scans the target scene generating 3D spectral-images. The instrument will be pre-programmed with a library of contamination filters that can automatically identify contaminants that could be present in any of the image pixels. T ...
