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. High Performance AlGaN HEMT Devices Grown on Lattice Matched Substrates


    "AlGaN-based heterostructures have demonstrated versatility in optical and electronic applications which is practically unmatched by other material systems. The AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) constitute a leading candidate forsimultaneously realizing ultra-high frequency low noise amplifiers and power amplifiers. The electron transport properties at the AlGaN/GaN interface al ...

  2. Photonic Cross Connect Switch for True Time Delay Beam Steering (BMDO/02-211B--Optical Devices)

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Ballistic missile defense relies upon the deployment of radars that are designed for wideband or multi-band operation to support the following required functions: Accurate target tracking; Object discrimination and classification; Countermeasuresmitigation, and; Nuclear and natural environment mitigation. Additionally, the need to detect and track small targets at long ranges dictates that the r ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Super Parallel Holographic Optical Correlator for Rapid Identification of Targets (BMDO/02-211B: Optical Devices)


    "In many situations, it is necessary to identify a target rapidly. Here, we offer to demonstrate a novel device that can search through more than ten million images, stored in a one terabyte holographic memory unit (HMU), in a millisecond. Called the superparallel holographic optical correlator (SPHOC), this device can be viewed as nearly two thousands holographic optical correlator (HOC) running ...

  6. Single Converter Hall Thruster Power Processor

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The need for low mass, cost and complexity electric propulsion systems driven by the growing interest in microsatellites to perform high delta-V missions requiring north/south station keeping, orbit transfer, inclination changes and precise formationflying can be enabled by Busek's multi-mode low power Hall thruster. However, state-of-the-art electric propulsion technology is complex and costly ...

  7. Rapidly Starting Cathode for Electric Propulsion

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Busek's tandem Hall thruster can deliver precisely controllable, repetitive or single impulse bits of arbitrary magnitude, the latter dictated by the duration of the discharge pulse. To fully capitalize on the pulsed operation of a Hall thruster requiresa cathode capable of rapid starting to minimize the time from the command for thrust to the time the discharge pulse can be initiated. The most ...

  10. Effectiveness of RP and CW Lasers for Target Damages

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes an experimental and analysis program to determine the relative advantages or limitations of two different high-energy laser waveforms for inflicting lethal damage to metal aerospace targets. Repetitively pulsed (RP)and continuous wave (CW) waveforms will be used to irradiate steel, a typical tactical target material. Metal melting rates will be measured and ...
