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. High Energy Density Inductors

    SBC: Angstrom Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Inductors are essential components of military and commercial power management and electronic systems. Existing ferrite based inductors have reached a technology plateau that allow only marginal improvements in performance per unit volume. It is anticipated that the future inductor based technologies, such as EMI suppression, would require significantly higher energy density inductors. Fundamental ...

  2. Polycrystalline Optical Waveguide Isolator

    SBC: Jacob M. Hammer Photonics            Topic: N/A

    Semiconducting lasers, laser arrays and other diode-laser devices for both military and private sector applications benefit greatly if used in conjunction with isolators capable of preventing reflections from reentering the device. This proposal describes an approach which can be integrated with laser/amplifier semiconducting material system, to produce efficient non-reciprocal magneto-optic isola ...

  3. Sensors-Adaptive Beam Expander

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and fabricate an adaptive beam expander that can be switched between two magnifications. Specifically, the beam expander provides diffraction-limited performance for laser radar beams with diameters of 1 mm and 3 mm. The adaptive beam expander is lightweight, and it has no moving parts. Because the beam expander is an afocal system, it operates on both outgoing and incoming be ...

  4. Graded Composite Architecture for Thermal Management

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Design and fabrication of a high thermal conductivity carbon fiber/aluminum matrix composite architecture is proposed which consists of discrete segments of functional areas that can respond to complex design calling for thermal management, low-expansion, structural, and low specific weight requirements. Composites will be produced utilizing Hollow and Planar Cathode Magnetron Sputtering Processin ...

  5. Fabrication of a Low-Cost, Lightweight Cu-AlN Composite for Thermal Management

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High thermal conductivity materials with low CTE, and high strength and stiffness are required for high thermal flux applications. In addition, if these materials are relatively inexpensive, lightweight and non-toxic, and have low vapor pressure to survive in space-operating environments, they will be attractive candidates for thermal management in aerospace structures. Such materials are urgently ...

  6. A Novel High Thermal Conductivity, Low CTE, Low Weight MMC Substrate for Microelectronics Packaging

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program proposes the development of a high thermal conductivity (470-550 W/mK), low coefficient of thermal expansion (5-8 ppm/K), and low weight (2.9-4.3 g/cc) Cu based metal matrix composite material to produce high performance substrates for microelectronics packaging. The proposed MMC system uses copper as the continuous metal matrix and cubic bor ...

  7. Diamond/W Microcathode/Microcathode Array with Very High Field Emission Current Density

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Diamond has recently emerged as a promising material for electron field emission due to its unsurpassed properties of low voltage and room temperature operation, operation robustness, simple design, and reproducibility. However, the present diamond cathodes, which are microcrystalline diamond thin films deposited on macro-substrate (mm to cm size ) suffer a few drawbacks. Only 1-10% or less of the ...

  10. Advanced Metal Powder Manufacture for MLCC Applications

    SBC: NANOCHEM RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors, capacitors, and conducting features such as resistors and capacitors on circuit boards are produced from metal and ceramic powders 1-12 These powders are manufactured by liquid phase precipitation routes which often start with reduction of metal salts or by solid-state routes where solid reactants are mixed, heated and then milled. The solid-state processing is generally repeated several ...
