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. Improved System and Methods for Evaluating Protective Material Performance to Chemical Agents


    "Sensor Research and Development Corporation (SRD) proposes to develop an Automated Measurement of Breakthrough in Real-time (AMBR) prototype to test chemical protective materials. AMBR will increase the safety, efficiency, and sample throughput for fabrictests while improving data quality and expanding test capabilities. SRD will develop AMBR by integrating proven solid-state chemical agent sen ...

  3. Improved M8 Test Paper for Chemical Agent Detection


    Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) proposes to develop a field-rugged, colorimetric indicating test paper that is capable of detecting multiple chemical warfare agents (CWAs), at low concentrations, in adverse environments. The proposed sensor array will detect threatening chemical agents and provide a visual readout after coming in contact with the agent, or agents. This array will overcome the st ...

  4. Improved M8 Chemical Agent Detector Paper for Facilities Monitoring

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: CBD11103

    The goal of this Phase I project is to develop coatings for M8 paper that improve its robustness and rate of detection of potential liquid/aerosol chemical warfare attack at fixed military sites and installations. A problem that is currently experienced with M8 paper is that it is easily contaminated by dust or destroyed by rain and thus requires frequent replacement in outdoor environments. Our ...

  7. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  9. Hokkien Low Density Language Capability


    Toyon proposes to establish the feasibility of a novel approach to performing S2ST between a target language, such as English, and the low density spoken only language Hokkien. While we will focus of Hokkien during the research and development efforts of Phase I, our system can be tailored to any low density spoken language. Our approach leverages our recently developed Android Team Awareness Kit ...
