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. Development of a High Capacity 35 K Multistage Turbo-Brayton Cryocooler

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop an innovative high capacity multistage cryocooler for dual cooling loads at temperatures of 85 K and 35 K. The cooler is based on proven turbo-Brayton technology that has been flight demonstrated and qualified for use on the HubbleSpace Telescope (HST). This technology will be adapted to the unique requirements of DoD infrared sensor applications at lower temperatures and ...

  2. A Cryogenic Heat Transport Loop for Space-Borne Gimbaled Instruments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "A high-performance cooling system for gimbal-mounted infrared sensors is a critical need for future space-based target acquisition and tracking systems. The optimal approach uses a high performance cryocooler remotely located on the spacecraft platformcombined with a high conductance, cryogenic heat transport system to exchange heat from the sensors to the cryocooler. The heat transport system ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Innovative Manufacturing of Novel, High-Performance Composites for Propulsion Components


    "Improving performance while reducing cost and weight of kinetic energy kill vehicles and components will require the development of several innovative improvements in materials, processing and manufacturing technologies. For example, many accepted rocketnozzle-manufacturing processes are labor intensive, consume excessive amounts of energy and time, and force engineering tradeoffs involving geome ...

  6. Development of Magnesium Diboride Coils for High Voltage Superconducting Transformers

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    "New high power airborne and mobile military systems will require megawatts of electrical power produced by very lightweight power sources. The majority of these new systems will require multi-megawatts of power delivered at very high-voltages.Generators will not be able to directly produce the high voltages so high-voltage, multi-megawatt transformers will be required. A superconducting transf ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
