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. Thick Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) System and Design Software Tool

    SBC: Sierra Lobo, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "A thick multilayer insulation (MLI) system is proposed for meeting the cryogenic fluid storage requirements of future space missions. This thick MLI system will be an integration of the most promising new technologies and advances in materials,fabrication processes, assembly techniques, and supplemental components. As a primary part of the proposed effort, an MLI software design tool will be co ...

  2. Toughened Hafnium Nitride Cermets for KKV Propulsion Systems

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal addresses MDA's stated requirement to significantly improve the affordability, maintainability and technical performance characteristics of kinetic kill vehicle propulsion hardware; specifically, divert and attitude control system (DACS)components. In light of these challenges, Exothermics proposes that a new, ultrahigh temperature-capable category of refractory nitride cermets (tw ...

  3. Innovative Intrusion Detection System for Host Computers

    SBC: Xfinit            Topic: N/A

    "Current host-based intrusion detection systems are mostly based on attack signatures and are unreliable for detecting insider and/or new attacks and they create too many false positives so that administrators become complacent about potential securityrisks. The opportunity exists to build hierarchical statistical models for host-based intrusion detection systems that will perform deviation detect ...

  4. Self-latching solid-state fiber optic cross-connect switch array

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High performance fiberoptic switches are in great demand for use in both modern commercial and defense communication networks and next-generation military sensing systems. Current fiberoptic switches lack reliability and operation speed. Carrie-classreliable switch matrix has not been realized because of the intrinsic limitation of existing technologies. Agiltron Corporation proposes to develo ...

  5. Direct Casting of Er-Alloys for High-performance Cryocooler Regenerators

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal considers the potential of direct casting of micro channel cryocooler regenerators. Currently, cryocoolers use regenereators made of packed spheres, which decrease the efficiency of the regenerator and, of course, the cryocooler itself.This is an important issue when considering placing cryocoolers on satellites and the cryocooler itself utilized almost half of the power supply. T ...

  6. Short Pass Deep UV Omnidirectional Optical Filter With Ultra Wide Blocking Range

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This SBIR Phase I proposal addresses a need for improved UV and deep UV filters for aerospace and defense applications. A new approach to the design and fabrication short pass filters, based on a new photonic material, will allow filters to be made withtransmission at wavelengths as short as 130nm or less. Both these properties are unachievable by any other means. In Phase I, it is proposed to ...

  7. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The terahertz (THz) wave region is an underutilized electromagnetic spectrum in which generation is difficult. The existing THz sources are generated either by large and expensive free electron laser or by pulsed optical radiations. There is an increasedneed for continuous THz wave source of high temporal and spatial coherence. The practical use of THz spectrum requires new laser technology th ...

  8. BMDO 014A- Novel System for Bulk Growth of Semi-Insulating SiC

    SBC: CAPESYM INC            Topic: N/A

    "It is proposed to develop a novel growth system capable of producing large diameter and long Semi-Insulating SiC crystals. The proposed system aims to achieve semi-insulating properties in the crystal by reducing the impurity levels in the reactorassociated with the graphite containment elements. The proposed growth system is based on using gas precursors instead of SiC powder, and uses a nove ...

  9. Innovative Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: MENTIS SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    "During the past 5 years, Mentis Sciences has developed advanced material processes to produce high performance composite radomes for missile interceptor applications. These unique and proprietary processes have enabled us to produce radome prototypes thathave inherently low dielectric constants and loss tangents for Ka band applications through 1500¿F, exceed the structural requirements and hav ...

  10. High Gain Bandwidth Relay Mirror

    SBC: Xinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Current plans for high-power defense systems such as ABL and SBL, require adaptive mirrors that can handle high-power requirements, correct wavefront errors, and perform precise pointing and tracking. Normally separate devices that increase the complexityof the beam train handle these functions. Two problems must be addressed. First, high-power laser systems degrade the optical quality of thei ...
