  1. A Metal Hydride Power Source for HALE Aircraft Propulsion

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB082064

    High altitude long endurance (HALE) aircraft encounter thin atmosphere, low temperatures, long missions, and long periods of storage, all within strict weight limitations. Power sources are correspondingly unconventional. DARPA has identified metal hydrides as preferred energy storage materials for this application. The proposed SBIR Phase I program addresses development of metal hydride materials ...

  6. Autonomous Detection, Acquisition, Pointing, and Tracking of Small UAVs

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: SB082002

    The need to detect and track small aerial targets is identified. An approach to use a unique passive radar front-end sensor is described, which provides the initial detection capability. The data from the sensor is used to cue a high-speed, highly accurate pointing and tracking system with a Coude path capability. In Phase I, the system design will be completed. In Phase II, build-out and system t ...
