  1. Fast Trajectory Generation in High Fidelity Geopotentials using Finite Elements, Mascons, and Parallelism

    SBC: ANALYTICAL MECHANICS ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF09BT02

    We propose to investigate the feasibility of obtaining fast and accurate trajectories using global geopotential models representing departures from the two-body plus J2 terms. The proposed geopotential formulations and numerical integration methods rely on multi-core processors and the emerging massive parallel capabilities of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) available to common personal computer ...

  2. Anti-Jam Improvements by Combining Remotely Located Global Positioning System (GPS) Antennas on an Unpiloted/Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Platform

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: AF083159

    Currently, two types of antenna configurations are in use with GPS receivers; fixed reception pattern antenna (FRPA) and controlled reception pattern antenna (CRPA). FRPA is a single element antenna and, thus, can not use angle of arrival as a discriminator to suppress interfering signals or jammers. CRPA is an array of antenna elements that can use angle of arrival as a discriminator to reject in ...

  3. Distributed Adaptive Control of Engine Systems

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T026

    Aurora and Georgia Tech’s Phase I efforts demonstrated the feasibility of a partially distributed control scheme with separate controllers on the engine core and fan, where the controllers are linked by a supervisory controller. This scheme is representative of the situation encountered in VTOL UAV design and the design of new turbo-props and variable pitch turbofans by the large commercial gas ...

  4. Optimized Silent SUAS Propeller Design

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF093163

    Aurora Flight Sciences Corporation (Aurora) asserts that SUAS propellers can be made significantly harder to detect with improved aerodynamic performance using proven aerodynamic and acoustic propeller design codes. The novel aspect of this proposal is that Aurora can build existing acoustic, aerodynamic, and stress codes into a single propeller design software code that iterates on propeller geo ...

  5. Structurally Embedded Power and Signal Cabling for Air Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF093006

    During the Phase I Program, Aurora will design and fabricate a small-scale demonstration article showcasing the developed embedded power systems technology. Design and manufacturing principals for the proposed embedded power systems technology will be developed as part of the Phase I Program. Test articles will be designed and fabricated using the developed principals and subsequently tested to ...

  6. Collaborative Sensor Fusion and Management for Multiple UAVs

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF083054

    Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are increasingly being used by the military to gather Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) information in warfare environments. Of particular interest is the tracking of multiple targets for global situational awareness. To accomplish this mission, UAVs can be equipped with a myriad of different types of sensors which can be combined in complementary ...

  7. Development of Multidisciplinary, Multi-Fidelity Analysis and Integration of Aerospace Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08BT03

    ABSTRACT: Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), proposes to further develop and test in realistic settings an innovative method for representing and managing multidisciplinary design information from a wide range of analysis tools. The practical implication resulting from this novel approach is a mathematical framework to confidently determ ...

  8. Solid-State Morphing Flight Control for Micro Air Weapons

    SBC: AVID LLC            Topic: AF083097

    AVID has identified and demonstrated significant advantages of smart material aerodynamic actuators for micro air vehicles. The solid-state nature of this flight control actuation scheme allows for scalability to miniature sizes, as well as increases in overall reliability. The general approach to morphing flight control surfaces has been proven through the Phase I results. Aerodynamic predictions ...

  9. Small UAV Accurate Geolocation and Discrimination

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF083053

    In this Phase 2 SBIR effort, Azure will develop and demonstrate a miniature SIGINT payload suitable for deployment on SUAVs as small as a WASP. This payload will be based on a scalable and modular design that can be extended in frequency, number of channels, and signal processing capabilities for larger platforms. The SIGINT payload will support a rich set of mission plans, allowing the operator ...

  10. Adaptive Control of Digital Channelized Receivers

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF093134

    One of the difficulties encountered in EW is the amount of spectrum available to target emitters. Effective surveillance of such wide bandwidths requires one or more EW receivers with high instantaneous bandwidths. The outputs of these receivers are usually channelized to facilitate signal detection and characterization. Current channelizers based on FFT filter banks provide channels equally sp ...
