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. Missile Intercept Debris Cloud Signature Toolkit

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    "A successful intercept of a high-altitude missile (>100km) by a kinetic energy kill vehicle initiates a complex sequence of events and observable signatures occurring over a very wide range of temporal, spatial, and spectral scales. The resultant debriscloud signatures contain highly desirable information on the lethality of the intercept (glancing blow or deadly impact) and on the contents of t ...

  2. Computation of Highly Excited Molecular Spectra

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    "Radiation-transport (RT) codes constitute the core component of the target, plume, background, and atmospheric signature models utilized by BMDO and virtually every other government agency and commercial company involved in developing optically-basedweapons, surveillance, and remote sensing systems. Critical to the accuracy and range of application of the RT codes are the accuracy and completenes ...

  3. Affordable Composites for Corrosion Protection of High-Value Test and Evaluation Assets

    SBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Triton Systems, Inc. (TSI) proposes to develop affordable, corrosion resistant (CR), composite structural materials to protect high-value assets at remote test facilities. The use of virtually corrosion-free polymer matrix composites to cost-effectivelyproduce structures and structural components, shelters, radomes, and antenna support structures will greatly reduce life cycle maintenance costs ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. High Performance AlGaN HEMT Devices Grown on Lattice Matched Substrates


    "AlGaN-based heterostructures have demonstrated versatility in optical and electronic applications which is practically unmatched by other material systems. The AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) constitute a leading candidate forsimultaneously realizing ultra-high frequency low noise amplifiers and power amplifiers. The electron transport properties at the AlGaN/GaN interface al ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. BMDO 014A- Novel System for Bulk Growth of Semi-Insulating SiC

    SBC: CAPESYM INC            Topic: N/A

    "It is proposed to develop a novel growth system capable of producing large diameter and long Semi-Insulating SiC crystals. The proposed system aims to achieve semi-insulating properties in the crystal by reducing the impurity levels in the reactorassociated with the graphite containment elements. The proposed growth system is based on using gas precursors instead of SiC powder, and uses a nove ...

  8. Innovative Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: MENTIS SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    "During the past 5 years, Mentis Sciences has developed advanced material processes to produce high performance composite radomes for missile interceptor applications. These unique and proprietary processes have enabled us to produce radome prototypes thathave inherently low dielectric constants and loss tangents for Ka band applications through 1500¿F, exceed the structural requirements and hav ...

  9. Super Parallel Holographic Optical Correlator for Rapid Identification of Targets (BMDO/02-211B: Optical Devices)


    "In many situations, it is necessary to identify a target rapidly. Here, we offer to demonstrate a novel device that can search through more than ten million images, stored in a one terabyte holographic memory unit (HMU), in a millisecond. Called the superparallel holographic optical correlator (SPHOC), this device can be viewed as nearly two thousands holographic optical correlator (HOC) running ...
