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. High Gain Bandwidth Relay Mirror

    SBC: Xinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Current plans for high-power defense systems such as ABL and SBL, require adaptive mirrors that can handle high-power requirements, correct wavefront errors, and perform precise pointing and tracking. Normally separate devices that increase the complexityof the beam train handle these functions. Two problems must be addressed. First, high-power laser systems degrade the optical quality of thei ...

  2. High Gain Bandwidth Deformable Mirror for High Energy Lasers

    SBC: Xinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Compensation of thermal blooming and high scintillation affects requires simultaneous large amplitude and large bandwidth operation or high gain bandwidth. Present deformable mirror technology, provides 3 to 4 microns stroke with a full amplitude bandwidthapproaching 500-Hz. It has been a design criteria that as the bandwidth increased, the amplitude decreased specific to a power spectral density ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. High Eneregy Density Nanocomposite Dielectric For Power Capacitors

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Eikos Inc. proposes to develop a nanocomposite with high dielectric constant (K), low loss, and high breakdown strength, to meet the design objectives of high energy density (HED) capacitors. This technology offers substantial improvements in energystorage by lowering size, weight, and system cost applicable to a wide array of future and existing systems. In the proposed Phase I program, we will ...

  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 ...

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "A novel method of micro-mixing by inducing a low frequency resonant sonic vibration (LFRSV) in the fluid medium results in the increased rate of energy dissipation per unit mass of the fluid, allowing rapid and efficient dispersion of solids, gases, andimmiscible liquids. This enhanced way of achieving micro mixing, can be used for dispersing nano particles in making gel propellants. Rheologica ...

  7. Guidance, Navigation, and Control for Small Boost-Phase Interceptors


    "This Phase I study proposes to address the objective of configuring a Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN&C) system suitable for missile defense interceptors which realizes order-of-magnitude reductions in mass, volume and cost relative to current GN&Csystems. These improvements will be sought through a combination of conceptual advances and use of components which benefit from cost reductions ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. GaN substrates for Superior GaN based Devices

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    "There is a need for a cost-effective technology for producing III-nitride substrates for fabrication of high efficiency and high power radar transmit/receive modules, as well as opto-electronic devices. The problems with the current technology offabricating III-nitride based devices on thin films grown on foreign substrates, such as sapphire or SiC, are the plethora of defects associated with th ...

  10. Fluorescence sensors of heavy metal ions

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    "ALTAIR Center proposes to develop a miniature, cost-effective fiber optic sensor array for detection of toxic heavy metal ions. The main detection principle is based on dual measurement of both absorption and fluorescence employing thin films ofporphyrin/polymer membrane. In Phase I of the project we studied the luminescence compounds and demonstrated that thin films of porphyrin-based membranes ...
