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. Non-Destructive Evaluation of Additive Manufactured Parts by Resonance Spectroscopy

    SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA20011

    The Phase II research will develop and demonstrate non-destructive techniques/tools for detecting internal voids and defects in additive manufactured (AM) components that can cause premature in-service failures and reduced fatigue life of specific components of interest to MDA. Candidate components under consideration include liquid-cooled rocket nose tips and nozzles, reinforcement structures, an ...

  2. Efficient Power-Scalable and Diffraction-Limited GaAs Diode Lasers

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: MDA20004

    Diode lasers now deliver very high powers at high efficiency, with ~70% electrical-to-optical conversion efficiency demonstrated by several groups from bars with powers of 100 W or greater. However, these devices are incoherent, multi-mode sources that cannot be focused effectively on a distant target and are not suitable for use as a directed energy weapon. Current directed energy designs rely on ...

  3. Optimization of Cellular Beam Control Systems


    Cornerstone Research Group (CRG) will demonstrate application of an existing in-house design tool for generation of cellular lightweight and jitter mitigating support structures and mechanisms for a high energy laser directed energy beam control system. By performing topology optimization of additively manufactured conformal lattice structures, the overall mass can be significantly reduced while a ...

  4. Ultra-High Efficiency Diffraction-Limited MOPA Diodes for Direct Diode High Power Lasers

    SBC: LASER OPERATIONS LLC            Topic: MDA20004

    For many important military tasks, such as the defense of surface ships against saturation attacks by swarms of drones or cruise missiles, expendable munitions are ineffective because they can be easily and cheaply overwhelmed, and the only realistic solution is provided by electrically powered laser weapons which offer a “deep magazine” and the ability to rapidly engage a multiplicity of wide ...

  5. High Power, Single Mode, Diode Emitter for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: Fuceltech Inc            Topic: MDA20004

    MDA is interested in developing single mode high power diode lasers with excellent beam quality and high efficiency and coherently combine them for high power output and use the coherently combined modules to build high power direct diode laser (HPDDL) systems capable of achieving upwards of 10-100 kW (dependent on the beam combining technique) of high output power while maintaining the beam quali ...

  6. Manufacturability Study for Flexible Printed RF Elements

    SBC: APPLIED NANOTECH, INC.            Topic: MDA20008

    Significant effort has been expended into the advancement of flexible, additively manufactured (AM) electronic systems. Less well studied are the effects of additively manufactured RF elements such as antennas, waveguides, and their required interconnects. Primarily, with respect to AM RF elements there is insufficient engineering data to rationally choose the ink materials and substrates and corr ...

  7. Automated Factor-Based Sensitivity Analysis

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: MDA20001

    Numerica proposes a novel approach to automated factor-based sensitivity analysis in high-dimensional search spaces that leverages recent advances in physics and machine learning utilizing low-rank tensor models and adaptive sampling techniques to overcome the curse of dimensionality for many problems. Based on this technology, we propose to develop an Automated Sensitivity Analysis Product that e ...

  8. 3D Reinforced C/SiC

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: 92

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to advance the Direct Z-Pin Insertion (DZI) process for local application of 3D reinforcements in high temperature composite structures (2000F-4500F). The DZI process inserts rigid composite pins normal (through thickness) to a 2D polymer composite preform prior to cure. DZI is designed to affordably provide the needed 3D reinforcement yet enable 2D laminate d ...

  9. Flexible TPS

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: MDA20007

    The Team of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), the University of Colorado and Teledyne Scientific will design, build and test a prototype flap for flight control of a hypersonic vehicle using PSI’s flexible ceramic composite technology developed during the Phase I program. During Phase I the Team demonstrated that PSI’s flexible carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide (C/SiC) was resistant to bend ...

  10. Low-Cost Space Based Cryocoolers

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: MDA20005

    The objective of the proposed effort is to design and build a bread-board version of a Low-Cost Space cooler including a novel, contact bearing system based on the previously done work in Phase I. The Attollo approach to creating low-cost space cryocoolers (based on our cryocooler design experience) is to create a pulse tube Stirling cryocooler with fewer parts, no flexure springs, ultra-low frict ...
