  1. Power Electronics Thermal Interface (PETI) with Conductive Diamond Plating

    SBC: Global Circuit Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    A growing number of electronic applications within the Air Force, such as devices for power conditioning and distribution, RF power amplification, and high power lasers have been identified for increased heat transfer requirements to maintain operational temperatures at acceptable levels while increasing the performance through higher power. However, this same target research that requires increas ...

  3. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: OmniScience LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    This proposed Phase I STTR effort will be a collaboration between OmniScience LLC and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) Vision and Security Technology (VAST) Lab. The primary objective of this Phase I effort is to demonstrate feasibility of a brain computer interface (BCI) controller for augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) and conventional screen displays, referred to herein as an A ...

  4. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...

  5. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...

  6. Microwave Weather Imager in a Cubesat form- MWIC

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: AF191006

    A conically scanning, i.e. imaging, microwave radiometer for weather imagery, cloud characterization, ocean vector surface winds, show depth, soil moisture, tropical cyclone intensity and sea ice properties observations is proposed. Microwave radiometers are uniquely suited to provide such measurements, specifically cloud water and ice content, rain and snow precipitation rate, weather imagery und ...

  7. Design Analysis for Rapid, Effective Integration and Test

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: AF191007

    Design Analysis for Rapid, Effective Integration and Test (DAREIT) will support rapid deployment of CubeSats by adapting the model-based Architecture Centric Virtual Integration Process (ACVIP) pioneered by the Army. ACVIP employs model-based system engineering to perform virtual integration and testing to identify issues in system designs early when it is orders of magnitude more efficient than f ...

  8. Rapid CubeSat Development

    SBC: BLUE CANYON TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF191007

    BCT is proposing a re-configuration of its high performing CubeSat architecture, to be optimized for schedule, with the goal of a 4 month CubeSat. This CubeSat will maintain BCT's excellent star tracker-based attitude control system and other high performing subsystems such that it meets the needs of 90% of likely projects.

  10. Rapid CubeSat Development

    SBC: Orbital Mechanics Corporation            Topic: AF191007

    The topic of this SBIR is centered around the question of how long it takes to develop CubeSats, and how can this time be significantly reduced. We hypothesize that two major factors impeding CubeSat development timelines are immaturity of the supply chain, and challenges with hardware-software interaction during the integration process. We propose a solution to overcome these challenges and propo ...
