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. Ultra Low Power Electronics for Autonomous Micro-Sensor Applications

    SBC: Kairos Microsystems Corporation            Topic: AF093159

    Kairos Microsystems proposes a rugged low power"postage stamp"sized wireless micro-sensor node capable of 20m node to node and 1km node to base station communication with an operating life of one year. The small physical structure (16.5x16x4mm) is visually non-obvious and the spread spectrum signal is difficult to detect. It may be used as a point sensor or as an array of sensors that report obser ...

  2. Advanced ROICTechnology for Strained Layer Superlattice Photodetectors

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF093160

    The objective of this topic is to develop an optimized SLS-based Infrared FPA for high temperature operation with considerations for lower cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWAP). Infrared imaging systems in use today come at a high cost, require large amounts of space, are heavy, and consume large amounts of power. To reduce noise and improve responsitivity, such detectors are cryogenically cooled ...

  3. Efficiency Methodologies for Chemical Reactions of JP-8

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF093162

    ABSTRACT: It is essential to have reliable reduced kinetic models that are capable of predicting transient combustion phenomena such as ignition and extinction under augmentor operating conditions. Combustion Science & Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop a robust, computationally efficient reduced kinetic modeling tool for aviation jet fuels that can be coupled with unsteady flow models such a ...

  4. Subgrid Scale Combustion Modeling Based on Stochastic Model Parameterization


    ABSTRACT: The technical objective of this program is to develop a fast running, subgrid scale turbulence-chemistry interaction model for large-eddy simulation (LES) of aircraft combustors and augmentors that can accurately capture critical phenomena such as extinction and re-ignition effects. To accurately capture these phenomena, this model is based upon a parameterization of the linear-eddy mo ...

  5. Robust Spark and Plasma Ignition Systems for Gas Turbine Main Combustors and Augmentors

    SBC: Knite Inc            Topic: AF093165

    ABSTRACT: The USAF has identified a series of potential problems created by the capability limits of the present ignition technology. These limits are most pronounced at high altitude where low pressure and vitiated air produce an ignition limited condition. Knite"s Kinetic Spark Ignition (KSI) is a transformational ignition technology which can be rapidly adopted and manufactured by existing DoD ...

  6. High Bandwidth Plasma Sensor Instrumentation for the Measurements of Turbine Inlet Conditions

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF093167

    ABSTRACT: Modern gas turbines must reduce emissions while demonstrating improved efficiency, durability, and performance. Designers are using higher compression ratios and peak temperatures to meet these goals. Flows in the area of the turbine inlet are highly unsteady, non-uniform, and 3-dimensional. The lack of information of inlet conditions in the turbine results in faulty distribution of coo ...

  7. Electron Beam/Physical Vapor Deposition (EB/PVD) Coating Process Mapping for Complex Shapes

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: AF093168

    ABSTRACT: Thermal barrier coatings are currently employed to thermally protect gas turbine engine components from high gas inlet temperatures to improve the performance (fuel efficiency and thrust) of these engines. Enhanced benefits are envisioned in future TBC systems if TBC"s reliability and durability can be improved. One approach to achieve more reliable TBCs is the development of non destr ...

  8. Development of Multifunctional Damping Coating Systems for Turbine Engine Components

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: AF093171

    ABSTRACT: Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of modifying the composition and microstructure of thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems to enable enhanced damping capacity while retaining or improving overall system performance. The rotating components, used in gas turbine engines typically operate in severe operating conditions which include high temperatures, loads, vibrations a ...

  10. FADEC Thermal Management


    ABSTRACT: The Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) controls engine operation. This SBIR Phase II project will develop a thermal management system for the FADEC that includes four components: 1. Active cooling to reject the FADEC waste heat to higher temperature heat sinks, 2. Heat pipes and other devices to reduce the temperature gradients inside the FADEC box, 3. Insulation to reduce t ...
