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. Bonding of Dissimilar Materials Using Pulsed Power

    SBC: UTRON, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BMDO seeks development of novel low-to-no outgassing joining/bonding techniques for advanced composites. Explosive welding, employing actual chemical explosives, is a versatile process that can be used, in principle, with any two materials. In some situations involving difficult materials, explosive bonding is the only practical joining method. Typically, a layer of explosive is carefully coated o ...

  4. Development of Safe, Effective Difluoramination Reagents

    SBC: TPL, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Rocket motors that develop greater thrust with lower weight and volume require-ments are an ever present goal of the BMDO. One method of providing this is through formulation of higher energy propellant mixtures. TPL proposes to develop a new method of effectively producing new high perfor-mance propellant constituents for launch, orbit-orbit transfer and station keeping propulsion systems. The p ...

  5. Plasma Synthesis of Aluminum Nitride Nanopowders


    Aluminum nitride is as an ideal thermal management material since it has a very high thermal conductivity and its electrical resistivity is comparable to that of ceramic insulators. Aluminum nitride has thermal conductivity five times greater than alumina and has mechanical strength twice that of alumina and beryllium oxide. The current methods of synthesizing and consolidating aluminum nitride re ...

  8. Solid State Neutron Detector

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phase I proposes to demonstrate an easy-to-operate, inexpensive room temperature neutron detector based on boron-doped diamond. The detector would produce an immediate signal related to low-level neutron irradiation. The concept exploits the high neutron absorption cross section of B-10, which results in excellent sensitivity. The charge carriers generated in the diamond by a neutron absorption ev ...

  10. Nonequilibrium Electron Transport in InP Based Hybrid Heterojunction

    SBC: EPITRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    InP based heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) exhibit proven potential for use in high performance digital integrated circuits and discrete microwave components. For high speed applications, it is desirable to utilize structures that have been designed to promote high levels of nonequilibrium electron transport as this allows realization of higher electron velocities than possible for diffus ...
