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. A Unified Approach to Intercept Signature Prediction and Kill Assessment Based on High-fidelity Physics Models

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: MDA06047

    A successful intercept of a missile by a kinetic energy kill vehicle initiates a complex sequence of events and associated observable signatures that occur over a very wide range of temporal, spatial, and spectral scales. The signatures contain highly desirable information on the lethality of the intercept (glancing blow or deadly impact) and on the contents of the warhead (nuclear, biological, or ...

  3. High Fidelity CT Imaging of High-Z Materials for Rocket Motor Aging Detection

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF06191

    Propellant aging in solid rocket motors can result in various defects such as micro-cracks, fissuring, and abnormal density variations. These defects can lead to abnormal burn rates and unsafe operations of the motor. Nondestructive inspection of solid rocket motors is critical in monitoring aging of solid rocket motors. High energy gamma-ray CT is a nondestructive inspection method to evaluate s ...

  4. RICOCHET: Rapid Imaging and Characterization of Space Object Components by Hyperspectral Extraction and Typing.

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF06263

    Hyperspectral and multispectral imaging sensors have enormous potential for space-based characterization and identification of resident space objects (RSOs). Ideally, a spectral sensor will be able to characterize both LEO and deep-space geosynchronous-earth-orbit (GEO) and higher altitude RSOs. The instrument characteristics, band pass region, number of spectral channels, spatial resolution as we ...

  5. Fast Passive Optical Sensors for Measurement of Augmentor Combustion Dynamics

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF071173

    We propose to develop and optimize a novel system of fast passive optical sensors for in situ monitoring of combustion dynamics in a thrust augmentor system. Passive optical probes inserted into the combustor will provide multiple views of the flow field. A novel high-speed readout will provide statistical metrics of fluid-dynamic parameters for direct comparison to dynamic models. The sensors ...

  6. Theoretical Estimation of New Propellant Ingredient Heats of Condensation

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: OSD06PR5

    A critical concern in the manufacture of rocket engines is the development of new propellants to increase performance. A fundamental measure of rocket engine performance is the specific impulse, which is the force delivered per weight of propellant consumed. Due to the potentially high cost of laboratory experiments, the development of new rocket propellants is often guided by computational meth ...

  7. Spectral Power Estimation and Characterization of Unresolved Resident Space Objects

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF071283

    Part of the Air Force space situational awareness mission includes the characterization, identification and real-time tracking of man-made resident space objects (RSO) orbiting the earth. Even with space-based observation, geostationary satellites will be dim and unresolved against a cluttered star or earth limb background. It is critical, therefore, to develop techniques specialized for these co ...

  10. Pattern Factor Control Based on Fuel Modulation and Passive Optical Sensors

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF06167

    The proposed research addresses the design and testing of a flight-worthy combustion pattern factor control system, suitable for integration into legacy aircraft. Operating point control would be achieved using fuel modulation, passive optical sensors, and the FADEC to identify aberrant fuel injectors and trim fuel flow to reduce overall pattern factor. Miniature sensors, which would be integra ...
