  4. Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite Cluster (MicroMAS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: ST092005

    Small satellites working in coordinated manner as part of a distributed constellation hold the promise to revolutionize DoD space operations. However, small satellites also have significant inherent limitations. Their size limits the types of sensors that they can accommodate. It also limits propulsion, power generation and attitude control capabilities. One way of overcoming some of these lim ...

  5. Integrated Photovoltaic Energy Scavenging and Storage System

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB092010

    The majority of modern portable, wireless electrical devices are powered by batteries; when the batteries are depleted they must be replaced or recharged, which is a problem when the system operates in remote areas or an enemy's region. The capability to scavenge energy from the environment to recharge batteries and/or directly power electronics is essential to increase system lifetime and utilit ...

  6. Electric Lift Fan for VTOL Air Vehicle

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB091014

    The need exists for safe, high power density electric lift fans, especially for vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) air vehicle applications. The unique approach proposed here uses electric power to drive a brushless ring motor and fan inside a duct. The ring motor is scalable and requires no gearing, linkages, or hot-gas plumbing. The low disk loading compared to turbojets and turbofans minimizes ...

  7. Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite Cluster (MicroMAS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB092016

    CubeSats have emerged as a de-facto platform for small, low cost satellites. There is an ever growing list of COTS suppliers for CubeSat compatible systems, and numerous launch opportunities due to the development of the PPOD launcher which now flies as part of many expendable launch vehicles and even the Space Shuttle. In spite of this, CubeSats applications are limited by the small size, volum ...

  8. Wideband Sub-Array Digital Receiver Exciter (DREX) Development and Packaging

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA08028

    In a conventional phased array radar (PAR), analog beamforming networks reduce the entire array into a few combined beams (e.g., sum beam, difference beams) at X-band. Next generation PAR will use a hybrid approach, forming many subarray beams in analog, and then performing a second-stage of beamforming digitally. In analog beamforming systems, only a few DREX modules are needed for the entire rad ...

  9. Design Modified Commercial CMOS for MDA IR FPAs

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: MDA08013

    Foreign missile threat will increase as ballistic missile technology becomes available on an international scale. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) requires high performance, high sensitivity and low noise infrared sensors for space based sensing applications that operate in environments where radiation hardness is essential to mission operation. Radiation hard by design (RHBD) readout integrated circu ...

  10. Development of New Adaptive Polymer Lenses

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB092014

    Boulder Nonlinear Systems proposes to develop significantly improved adaptive polymer lenses (APLs) for use in a variety of imaging systems. APLs will be fabricated and characterized for focal length and optical properties. Electro-mechanical actuators will be investigated. An optical zoom system using the APLs developed on this contract will also be designed and included as part of the final r ...
