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. Neurophysiological Based Methods of Guided Image Search

    SBC: Veridical Research and Design Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Complex analysis of intelligence imagery is crucial to the missions of intelligence organizations, yet remains constrained by labor-intensive, time-consuming visual search of large volumes of imagery. Many algorithms have been developed to automaticallyidentify regions of interest in large, complex sets of imagery, yet the utility of such algorithms is limited by the fact that human analysts dete ...

  2. Next Generation Imager


    "Silicon based charged couple devices (CCD) have been the workhorse of solid state imaging technology for use in the visible spectrum. As the need for higher resolution is ever increasing, silicon based systems are being pushed to their limit. Either largersystems, constructed on a single wafer or higher pixel density per square centimeter are called for. In either case, all pixels in a frame must ...

  3. Novel 2D Optical Superlattice for Optical Interconnection Devices

    SBC: LUTRONICS            Topic: N/A

    "Optical computation requires very specific optical interconnection schemes such as the in-plane sharp bends and the fast channel switching functions. The integration requirement with existing waveguide technologies further put many limitations on using thecurrent technologies to develop such a device with acceptable performances. This project proposes a new concept of using a new bistable mechan ...

  4. Novel Hybrid Photonic Materials for Optically Addressed Light Modulators (Subtopic A)

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "Novel bio-organic/inorganic hybrid materials for use in optically addressed light modulators is proposed. Supramolecular chemistry will be used to prepare previously unknown materials for light modulation. If successful, the proposed research willimprove the speed, pixel count, resolution and contrast of spatial light modulators while simultaneously reducing their size, weight and cost. Phase ...

  5. Novel Nonlinear Optical Crystal--Large Aperture and High Nonlinearity

    SBC: LUTRONICS            Topic: N/A

    "Stoichiometric Lithium Tantalate crystal (SLT: 50/50) was found to be overwhelmingly superior over its congruent counterpart (CLT: 48.75/51.25) in nonlinear optical, electro-optical (EO), UV transparency, and domain reversion. Third harmonic generation viaperiodically poled structure inside this SLT crystal is expected to be more efficient, and to be more realistic for fabricating novel compact U ...

  6. Optical Quantum Information Processing in Photonic Crystals

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

    "Quantum mechanics predicts that quantum two-level systems - quantum bits, or simply qubits - can provide fundamentally new methods of information processing due to possible existing in an arbitrary coherent superposition of quantum states. That offers anenormous gain in the use of information technology resources such as time and memory. The first qubits and quantum logic gates are now being buil ...

  8. Periodically poled stoichiometric lithium tantalate:A new approach for a new material

    SBC: ADVR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate a promising new technique for fabricating periodic domain gratings in stoichiometric lithium tantalate(SLT). The key innovation in this SBIR effort is the use of externally mountedmicro-electrodes to electrically pole the material. This poling technique, made possible because of the low coercive field found in SLT, will sign ...

  9. Photonic Cross Connect Switch for True Time Delay Beam Steering (BMDO/02-211B--Optical Devices)

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Ballistic missile defense relies upon the deployment of radars that are designed for wideband or multi-band operation to support the following required functions: Accurate target tracking; Object discrimination and classification; Countermeasuresmitigation, and; Nuclear and natural environment mitigation. Additionally, the need to detect and track small targets at long ranges dictates that the r ...

  10. Photonics; BMDO/02-211A-Optical Materials

    SBC: Kent Optronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This SBIR program proposes a novel laser line discrimination technology for military applications based on a novel filter made from special liquid crystal thin films. In the "off" state, the laser line discrimination device is optically clear under zerovoltage. Once electrically switched, the device exhibits narrow band reflection peaks that reject incoming laser lines at two or more predetermi ...
