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. Sea Chest’s Ubiquitous Antifouling Separator System

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC.            Topic: N20AT008

    Zumwalt-class destroyer’s engine and equipment are cooled using heat exchangers and sea water pumped through them. It is mission critical for this equipment to be adequately cooled during operation. This sea water is drawn from sea chests, which utilize geometry in order to decrease eddies and non-laminar flow along the hull. The current sea chest design is only using the grate on the hull surfa ...

  2. Dual Stage Integrated Cyclone (DSIC) Geometry for Sea Chest Water Management System


    Current Zumwalt Class destroyers (DDG 1000) sea chest openings are unique because they must be flush to the hull, limiting implementation of common sea chest designs (e.g., bubble shields or raised inlets). This design results in the ingestion of higher amounts of ice, debris, and air, resulting in increased maintenance costs, potential pump failure, and degraded overall cooling performance. The N ...

  3. Environmental Vibration Mitigation for Additive Manufacturing Equipment

    SBC: ETEGENT TECHNOLOGIES, LTD.            Topic: N20AT010

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a rapidly evolving technology that is being used in a growing number of new and different applications. As applications become more diverse, so will the environments within which AM equipment is relied upon to operate effectively and produce high quality parts. One specific challenge is maintaining part quality when AM equipment is required to operate in environments ...

  4. SiN-based heterogeneous PIC platform around 670 nm

    SBC: NEXUS PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF20AT002

    We propose to develop an atomically referenced visible spectroscopy-grade PIC laser operating at 671 nm which will provide a visible PIC-based oscillator with absolute atomically referenced frequency stability at a part per billion level.

  5. Innovative Hybrid Atomic-Optical Ultra-Precise Inertial Sensing for Space Applications


    Space is the ultimate GPS-denied environment and requires novel approaches to precision navigation. Open-loop fiber-optic gyroscopes (FOG) enable large bandwidth and dynamic range with low noise. Emerging atom interferometric gyros (AIG) provide extremely high long-term stability and accuracy, but have limited bandwidth due to minimum required atom interaction durations. Combining these two techno ...

  6. Novel Semiconductor Driven Three-Photon Rydberg Antenna

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: AF20AT002

    A novel approach to a RF sensor is proposed. This RF sensor leverages the quantum properties of atoms to detect RF signals over a wide bandwidth, independent of the physical size of the receiver. This can significantly reduce size, weight and power consumption of communication equipment. Freedom Photonics has consistently demonstrated world class performance laser products that are critical to the ...

  7. Integrated Photonic Quantum Frequency Processor for High-Dimensional QIP

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: AF20AT003

    To formulate the ultimate quantum computer, it is likely the case that several technologies will be combined in a hybrid fashion, in which dissimilar and physically separated qubits are joined via universal quantum interconnects – a network dubbed the “quantum internet”. Quantum information processing in the photonic domain allows for information to transmitted over appreciable distances, op ...

  8. LOQI: Leveraging Optimization using Quantum-devices for Internet-security

    SBC: QC WARE CORP.            Topic: AF20AT003

    The Leveraging Optimization via Quantum-devices for Internet-security (LOQI) proposal aims to demonstrate the power of hybrid (quantum/classical) optimization approaches for classes of combinatorial optimization problems that are relevant to several cyber-security settings. In Phase 1 (this proposal) we will conduct a feasibility study to develop an analytical framework and algorithms, and prototy ...

  9. Quantum Entanglement on Drones

    SBC: QUBITEKK, INC.            Topic: AF20AT004

    Devices that make use of quantum phenomena are being developed at an ever-increasing pace as the field of quantum information transitions from ‘understanding’ to ‘control’ in order to harness aspects of quantum mechanics to realize capabilities in computing, sensing, and communication that are simply not possible in the classical world. The growing prevalence of quantum devices will, in tu ...

  10. Systems-Driven Component Development for Photon-Superconductor Multi-Node Quantum Networks

    SBC: Rigetti & Co, Inc.            Topic: AF20AT004

    Large-scale quantum networks require new technologies for coherently routing quantum information between distant quantum memories or processing nodes. Notably, low-noise transducers for coherent microwave-optical signals endeavor to combine two of the most successful quantum platforms together, allowing quantum photonic networks to establish entanglement links between distant superconducting qubit ...
