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. Electrostatic, non-fluorescent trigger for aerosolized biological threats using fluctuation enhanced sensing.

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: CBD09109

    The objective of this Phase I proposal is to perform a theoretical exploration of the fundamental and practical limits of detection by fluctuation enhanced sensing and statistical inference based sensing methods when applied to an electrostatic-based trigger for non-fluorescent biological warfare threats. To enable < 1000 ACPLA detection levels of bacterial spores in real-time, these statistical ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Geo And Ortho Rectified Video With Fused 3d Mapping, Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR), And Live Video Overlays


    While full motion video (FMV) data contains a wealth of information, its potential for providing actionable intelligence cannot be realized unless the data is provided within its geographic context and is correlated with available intelligence from human assets. To provide the necessary contextual, registration to/fusion with GIS data is a natural choice. This requires both geo- and ortho-rectific ...

  4. Flare with Optically Invisible Light Signature (Foils)

    SBC: EXQUADRUM INC            Topic: SOCOM09002

    The proposed program will theoretically and experimentally assess and identify innovative technologies, and advanced materials that emit an effective infra-red (IR) countermeasure in the desired IR spectrum range while minimizing detectable signatures in the visible light spectrum. During the research effort, the project team will develop the initial technical design and supporting documentation f ...

  5. Novel MicroPower Source for Insect Based Sensor and Communication Platforms

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: CBD09105

    Our objective is to develop a novel micropower source, microsensor, and communication chip for integration with an insect, thereby delivering a state-of-the-art unmanned chemical detection device. The proposed biological fuel cell (Bio-FC) will leverage ongoing research at CFDRC and provide a compact/lightweight power supply, for mounting on numerous types of insects and producing necessary power ...

  6. A Quarter Sized Optical NEMS Based Methyl Salicylate Detector


    The objective of Imaginative Technologies, LLC teamed with Yale University is to design and build a “breadboard”, real time, optical NEMS Based Methyl Salicylate Detector (MSD), capable of measuring the presence and concentration of a chemical agent simulant (methyl salicylate – MeS) beneath a protective garment. This proposed device, MSD, will be the size of a quarter so it may be comfortab ...

  7. Durable Anti-fog Coatings for Contoured Plastic Substrates Using Nanoparticles with Tunable Size and Surface Chemistry

    SBC: INNOSENSE CORPORATION            Topic: CBD09101

    Currently fielded respiratory protective systems in the Joint Services General Purpose Mask (JSGPM) program degrade in visual performance capability in extreme hot and cold environments. Optical and mechanical properties of existing anti-fog coatings also diminish when subjected to cleaning/sanitization operations. To address these needs, InnoSense LLC will develop durable anti-fog coatings that e ...

  8. Dielectrophoretic Microfluidic Protein Analysis System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: CBD09104

    To address the U.S. Army CBD need for a low-cost, universal, robust, and fieldable device for rapid, reproducible identification of protein variants from biological samples with high throughput, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Dielectrophoretic Microfluidic Protein Analysis (DiMiPA) system. The system is based on an electrodeless dielectrophoresis-based, continuous-flow ...

  9. Bio-Inspired Dry Adhesives

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: CBD09102

    The proposed project will develop bio-inspired adhesives for reliable and convenient sealing of full-facepiece respiratory masks against skin. Conventional pressure-sensitive adhesives rely on a liquid-like fluidity to establish molecular-scale contact against rough surfaces. While this contact mechanism limits their versatility and stability, they exhibit desirable long-range deformations which b ...

  10. Hand-Held Raman Analyzer for Chemical Identification

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS INC            Topic: CBD08102

    The overall goal of this proposed program (through Phase III) is to build a hand-held Raman analyzer that can perform non-contact identification of chemicals in the field. This will be accomplished by modifying a commercially available FT-Raman analyzer to employ 976 or 1064 nm laser excitation. Feasibility will be demonstrated in Phase I by comparing the ability of three Raman systems using las ...
