  1. Air Launch Testbed for Endoatmospheric Hypersonic Trajectories

    SBC: Generation Orbit Launch Services, Inc.            Topic: AF141081

    ABSTRACT:This SBIR proposal covers the preliminary design and initial hardware and software in-the-loop testing of the GOLauncher 1, a single stage liquid air launched rocket system, for utilization in future hypersonic flight testing efforts. Major objectives include completing prelimianry design of the system based on requirements defined during Phase I, further validation of cost and schedule e ...

  2. Passively Deployed Lightweight Solar Array Structure for Thinned-Multijunction Solar Cells


    Current deployable solar array systems are based on designs that have been in existence for more than 30 years.  In general, these heritage designs can be divided into two classes: 1) hinged-panel arrays, which are mechanically simple but mass inefficient, and 2) tensioned-membrane arrays, which are mechanically complex but mass efficient.  Arguably, no deployable solar array designs exist that ...

  3. Commercial Space Catalog

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF162D002

    Space-based systems play an increasingly critical role in civilian life and national defense. The increasing number of debris objects and satellites in space, and the many small and dim objects that are difficult to detect and track, are leading to a more congested and contested space environment. The ability to maintain a catalog of all resident space objects is becoming increasingly challenging ...

  4. Deployable Structural Booms for SmallSat Antennas

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: NonDOD

    During an 18-month Base Program Roccor will create, qualify and implement an affordable production-ready ROC Boom design for use in CubeSat antenna applications. The product development effort will position the ROC Boom technology for on-orbit flight validation in late 2017 and integration on a first 30-to-50-satellite operational system starting in 2018. In parallel, Roccor will create an ISO-c ...

  5. Small Satellite System for Space Surveillance

    SBC: Blue Canyon Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF163D001

    BCTs objective is to develop a low earth orbit spacecraft bus suitable for incorporation of an instrument that is capable of detecting and locating near-GEO (geo-synchronous orbit) space objects of apparent visible magnitude 16 Mv or brighter. BCTs technical approach is to leverage our existing Nanosatellite Bus and its XB1 avionics, that are currently being produced for multiple missions, and inc ...

  6. Spacecraft Integrated-Power and Attitude-Control System

    SBC: Blue Canyon Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF103102

    Extend previous work on this SBIR to perform requirements development, satellite design and analysis, radiation testing, and spacecraft bus engineering module procurement and manufacturing. Blue Canyon Technologies (BCT) is excited about this follow-on opportunity to continue the work of our previous SBIR efforts, by supporting AFRL in the design and development of a prototype Bus. BCT is uniquely ...

  7. Design-Hardened Radiation Tolerant Microelectronics


    Producing components that satisfy all of the BMDS space and interceptor environment specs traditionally has been not only costly but also untimely. One of the most difficult design constraints is making the components unaffected by the radiation environments of space. We propose to develop and demonstrate a radiation hardened ASIM3 in the IBM 9FLP process. This will be accomplished using the St ...

  8. Advanced Insider Threat Detection and Response

    SBC: Distributed Infinity Inc            Topic: AF073033

    Advanced Insider Threat Detection and Response is a breakthrough game changing analysis and response capability addressing integrated attacks at a fusion level 3 (identity, path, and intent).  Previous efforts including the Phase 1 demonstrated that high level abstraction of network and host data is not only possible, but measureable and verifiable.  The Phase 1 prototype defines and detects cou ...

  9. Multi-Target Track and ID with Persistent Hyperspectral Data

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF081071

    Military operations in urban warfare provide an added emphasis to effectively detect, track, and ID ground targets in challenging environments.  Given the high dynamic nature of ground targets and the ambiguity that may result from closely spaced targets, incorporation of feature data from sensors such as hyperpsectral imagery (HSI) cameras provides a means to disambiguate the tracking of these t ...

  10. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...
