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. Optimized Thermal and Optical Properties of Ceramic Coatins for Improved Diesel Engine Combustion

    SBC: American Ceramic            Topic: N/A

    Incomplete combustion in diesel engines are the source of many problems, including pollution, low efficiency, and reduced performance. In particular, diesel engines are the focus of much work in the area of improved combustion efficiency. While diesel engines do not exhibit high hydrocarbon and NOx tailpipe emissions normally associated with gasoline engines, they nonetheless have high exhaust g ...

  2. Optical Link for Cryogenic FPA Readout Using Si Circuitry and Thin Film Emitters, Detectors, and Modulators

    SBC: Abj Integration Technologies,            Topic: N/A

    Standard Digital CMOS silicon circuits will have high quality Thin Film emitters, and modulators integrated on to the silicon using epitaxial liftoff and results in low cost opto-electronics in the near future. ABJ Integration is a leader in the field and proposes to design an optimized FPA readout system using this technology. Both emitters and modulators as signal sources will be investigated.

  3. Optical Based Pressure Measurements in Aerodynamic Flows Using Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Optical techniques employing photoluminescent pressure-sensitive paints provide versatile tools for obtaining pressure maps of the aerodynamic surface. These techniques do not distort the flow field like arrays of pressure transducers or pressure taps on the test surface, and they provide high spatial resolution, accuracy and rapid response. Current techniques based on the fluorescence intensity ...

  4. Omni-Directional MIcrostrip Antenna on a Soldier's Helmet

    SBC: Mahanad Communications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Omni-directional microstrip antenna system integrally located on a soldier's helmet for secure and reliable communications in the battlefield is the subject matter of this proposed innovative research. The antenna system consist of (N+1) circular microstrip patch elements integrally located on the soldier's helmet to provide omni-directional coverage with acceptable antenna gain for all positions ...

  5. Novel Ultrasonic Method for Food Dehydration

    SBC: S.r. Taylor And Associates            Topic: N/A

    Foods are dehydrated to make them more easily packaged and stored at room temperature. The removal of water reduces the opportunity for harmful chemical reactions. Dehydrated food powders and particles are also used in "liquid meals" for dental patients. However, dehydrated foods traditionally have been difficult to rehydrate and are of relatively poor quality. The reasons for these difficulties a ...

  6. Novel Strip Test for Circulating Hormones

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Concentrations of most circulating hormones and their metabolites are too low for existing test strip technologies to measure. Laboratory measurements are based upon immunological binding of these hormones. Color tests utilizing colloidal gold or enzyme mediated color changes have been linked to immunological binding and applied to hormones to yield non-quantitative yes or no tests. These methods ...

  7. Novel Nanocomposite Materials with Self-Assembled Coating for Defense Applications


    This program will develop methods for the design and synthesis of novel nanocomposite materials having self-assembled monolayer coatings for defense applications. Synthesis will be based on the combination of low-cost powder processing invented by NASA, and ionic self-assembled monolayer (ISAM) methods invented at Virginia Tech. F&S has exclusive licenses to both enabling patents. The powder pr ...

  9. Non Invasive Deep Tissue Oxygenation Sensor

    SBC: Photonics Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop compact and low cost instruments to measure tissue oxygenation based on near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. NIR light in the .7-1.1 Um range penetrates human tissue to a depth of several centimeters, and is attenuated during transmission by oxyhemoglobin, deoxyhemoglobin, melanin, water and cytochrome aa3, each with its own cha ...
