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. Rapidly Starting Cathode for Electric Propulsion

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Busek's tandem Hall thruster can deliver precisely controllable, repetitive or single impulse bits of arbitrary magnitude, the latter dictated by the duration of the discharge pulse. To fully capitalize on the pulsed operation of a Hall thruster requiresa cathode capable of rapid starting to minimize the time from the command for thrust to the time the discharge pulse can be initiated. The most ...

  2. Low-Shock Release Mechanism with Structural Function

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The development of a multi-functional system for release or jettisoning of structures on launch vehicles and spacecraft is proposed. The system acts as both a release mechanism and as a structural component of an assembly prior to release. The primaryinnovation is the use of a high-strength adhesive, recently developed at EIC Laboratories, that is rapidly disbonded from a metallic surface by the ...

  3. SiC Optical Telescope for Next Generation Midcourse Interceptors

    SBC: SSG, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Advanced seeker systems for endo- and exo-atmospheric applications will utilize infrared and visible signature of ballistic threats in addition to LADAR ranging and imaging information for improved identification, discrimination and tracking. This futurecapability requires diffraction limited near visible performance for the optical system, while still maintaining the low cost production capabil ...

  4. High Energy Composite Cathodes for Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Physical Sciences Inc. proposes the fabrication of novel composite cathode materials for lithium ion batteries based on vanadium pentoxide and conducting polymers. These composite electrodes are expected to utilize the polyvalent intercalation capabilitiesof V2O5, allowing access to all four of the available valence states in the active material. Currently, the high capacity available in V2O5 can ...

  5. High density polarization independent ultrafast electro-optical switch matrix for sensor and communication networks

    SBC: SRICO INC            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal describes an all-optical 32x32 low-loss cross-connect switch based on periodically-poled gratings in an electro-optic waveguide substrate. The gratings are arranged between parallel waveguide channels and serve to produce coupling of thedesired wavelength from a given input channel to the desired output channel. Because these gratings are produced electro-optically, they may be swit ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Filterless Multicolor Image Sensors on SOI Structures

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Spire proposes to develop high-efficiency filterless silicon-based multi-color photodiode arrays suitable for spectroscopy and imaging applications in the UV to near-IR bands. The innovation, patented by Spire, is the use of a thin filmsilicon-on-insulator (SOI) structure in the active device region, which enables fabrication of wavelength-selective photodiodes. In these devices, the long cut-o ...

  10. 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 ...
