The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Electronic Smart Materials Based on Carbon Nanotube Sensors/Actuators

    SBC: EMITECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Emitech, Inc. proposes an innovative approach aimed at the development of carbon nanotube (CNT)-based thin film actuators/sensors possessing gravimetric work density up to 24000 J/kg per cycle, operating at frequencies up to 1 MHz, and at temperatures upto 700 C. This new concept is based on the quantum chemical effect of nanotube dimension change under charge doping/injection.The ability to move ...

  2. Advanced Tracking through Remote Supervision

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Target recognition and tracking requires the solution of several hard problems. A target signature must be identified in sensor data, this data must be associated with prior information on the target, and the association must be used to gain understandingof the target. In the presence of countermeasures and clutter, each of these components is computationally onerous even when using suboptimal ...

  3. Magnetostrictive Wires for Vibration Control in Fiber Reinforced Composite Structures

    SBC: Etrema Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Metallic sheathed magnetostrictive wires (MSMW) will be developed for use in fiber reinforced composite structures. These magnetostrictive wires will be based on rare earth intermetallics such as the "giant" magnetostrictive material TERFENOL-D. Thesmart material characteristics of the magnetostrictive wires can be exploited for sensing, actuation, and, in the simplest case, enhanced passive vi ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Single-Walled Nanotube Composite Structures for Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) possess a unique combination of high strength, high modulus and high elongation. Before the benefits of these materials can be realized in BMD structural applications, SWNT fillers must be made compatible with thethermosetting resins traditionally used in these applications so that load transfer into the nanotubes can be accomplished. In the proposed progr ...

  6. Superior and Affordable Infrared Windows for High-Speed Missiles

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The program will demonstrate the scientific, technical and commercial merit of our innovative infrared window material and cost-effective production process. The materials will have IR transmission characteristics close to that of current monolithicsapphire and ALON window materials. Additionally, our self-reinforced single crystal oxide material will provide a substantial improvement in therma ...

  7. Development of Magnesium Diboride Coils for High Voltage Superconducting Transformers

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    "New high power airborne and mobile military systems will require megawatts of electrical power produced by very lightweight power sources. The majority of these new systems will require multi-megawatts of power delivered at very high-voltages.Generators will not be able to directly produce the high voltages so high-voltage, multi-megawatt transformers will be required. A superconducting transf ...

  9. Isotropic Graphite Fiber Reinforced Al for High Performance Thermal Management Applications


    "The rise of next generation electronics depends on advances in microelectronic packaging materials. Power, frequency, and functionality are increasing while cost, size, and margin for error are declining. Military and commercial electronics are reachingperformance limitations since conventional CTE controlled heat sink materials are unable to keep pace with emerging cooling requirements. Graphi ...

  10. Graphite Fiber Reinforced Mg EKV Sunshade for Be Replacement and Cost and Mass Reduction


    "Mg alloys reinforced with high modulus graphite fibers have nearly 1.5 times the specific stiffness of beryllium. Since the EKV sunshade is a stiffness critical application, a sunshade manufactured from graphite fiber reinforced magnesium could weigh athird less than the current Be design. Using MMCC's net-shape Advanced Pressure Infiltration Casting (APICT) process, the sunshade would cost hal ...
