  1. 12U Agile Inspector CubeSat

    SBC: ExoTerra Resource, LLC            Topic: AF171074

    ExoTerra's 12U Agile Inspector CubeSat uses technology developed for deep space NASA missions to enable transit from LEO to GEO by a 12U CubeSat. This enables an affordable mission that can improve the ability to observe objects in GEO by over an order of magnitude. The system uses an iodine electric propulsion system and high specific power solar arrays to provide over 6 km/s of delta V at the h ...

  4. A Large Aperture Electro-Optic Beamsteerer

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: AF08T021

    We propose to develop a fully electro-optic beamsteerer for large aperture beams. The beamsteerer will be able to deflect 3-cm beam into a field of regard of 50 deg x 20 deg. In Phase I we will demonstrate and model key technologies needed for a Phase II deliverable. These include a highly birefringent liquid crystals, waveguide couplers, and high-index, high contrast waveguides that will give ...

  6. A Modular Architecture for Responsive Configuration of Satellite Autonomy

    SBC: DESIGN NET ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF083196

    A repeating topic in aerospace discussion forums is the ever-increasing reliance on space assets to support our national infrastructure. Their vulnerability has led to significant discussion about how to facilitate better situational awareness and protection of these assets. As the space environment becomes more utilized the management effort will inevitably become increasingly complicated. One st ...

  8. A small, Low Power, Bore Gas Composition Sensor for Determining Aging Changes in Composite Propellants and Service Life Assessment.

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF083115

    Determining the health of solid rocket motors (SRMs) is of critical importance in monitoring the reliability and projected life of the motor. Significant improvements in health monitoring prognostic capability and cost would benefit both ballistic missile and commercial space launch systems. A particular area of interest is development of bore gas composition sensors to determine aging changes in ...

  10. Adaptive Structures for Micro Munition Platforms

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF081050

    The U.S. Air Force has significant interest in the development of adaptive structures for micro munition platforms.  However, power, mass and cost constraints significantly limits the applicability of existing adaptive structure concepts for these smaller platforms.  To address these challenges, CTD is proposing the use of solid-state, electrically-driven actuators that require minimal power and ...
