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. 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 ...

  2. Self-assembling of micro-lenses on optical fibers

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    "ALTAIR Center proposes to develop an innovative technology for fabrication of a micro-lens directly on the optical fiber employing a simple and efficient self-organization process of the lens formation based on Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). During thisprocess the micro-lens is automatically created exactly on the fiber core as a result of a chemical reaction. Geometrical parameters of the mic ...

  4. Reliability of Space-Borne Turbo-Brayton Cryocoolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "The Department of Defense (DoD) will require cryocoolers for future missions to cool space-based infrared sensor arrays, space-based lasers, and orbital transfer vehicles. Turbo-Brayton cryocoolers are ideal candidates for these missions because they areefficient, lightweight, highly reliable, produce negligible vibration, and have an adaptable layout that allows them to be easily integrated wit ...

  5. Rapidly Starting Cathode for Electric Propulsion

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Busek's tandem Hall thruster can deliver precisely controllable, repetitive or single impulse bits of arbitrary magnitude, the latter dictated by the duration of the discharge pulse. To fully capitalize on the pulsed operation of a Hall thruster requiresa cathode capable of rapid starting to minimize the time from the command for thrust to the time the discharge pulse can be initiated. The most ...

  7. Protective coating for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)

    SBC: AST PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices, though built using semiconductor equipment, have a different set of failure mechanisms and reliability concerns than integrated circuits. One major concern is stiction, a term that describes the propensity oftwo silicon surfaces to stick to each other if they touch.To solve this problem, AST is proposing to develop organic coatings with Teflon-like ...

  8. Processing of Ultra-Lightweight Microcellular Foams from POSS-PMMA Nanocomposites


    "This proposal is submitted in response to BMDO SBIR solicitation 02-006#5. Conventional processing techniques for polymer foams involve multiple steps and the blowing agent used is toxic. Those foams are mostly over 3 pcf in density and suffer from theserious problems of moisture infusion and retention that leads to structural degradation and damage. The efficiency of thermal and sound insulatio ...

  10. Portable Optimizing Assembler for SIMD Instruction Sets

    SBC: VANU, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This SBIR Phase I project will develop a compiler for a portablevector assembly language. This tool will allow portable low-levelprograms to be written for signal-processing applications, and willproduce efficient code for modern general-purpose processors (GPP),taking full advantage of their vector (SIMD) instruction sets such asSSE on the Intel Pentium and Altivec on the Motorola PowerPC. Thi ...
