  2. Advanced Carbon Nanotubes- Based Polymer Matrix Composites for Satellites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: AF063009

    The Phase I results have proven the feasibility of creating breakthrough polymer matrix composites (PMC) with high-loadings of well dispersed nanotubes in engineering polymer matrixes. The exceptional mechanical properties of the developed PMCs will be further improved in the Phase II effort by increasing the nanotube loading in the PMC to the packing limit, through optimizing the interface of the ...

  3. Advanced In-Flight Rebreather

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF071034

    Flight crews require supplemental oxygen for emergency high-cabin-altitude operations. Some personnel require a walk-around oxygen supply to move freely throughout the cabin until the altitude is reduced to a safe level. Current low-pressure bottles cannot supply oxygen for an adequate duration in an acceptable cylinder size, and multiple cylinder fills are usually required to meet common missio ...

  4. All-Fiber Optical Isolators for High Energy Lasers

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF171108

    Ten kW of diffraction-limited output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. An isolator is necessary between fiber amplifiers in order to maintain stable operation. We propose to develop and optimize all-fiber isolator using our proprietary Faraday rotation fiber with high Verdet constan ...

  7. Automated Analysis of Datalink Transmissions (AADT)

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: AF06317

    The focus of the Phase II of this SBIR topic is to build a prototype of an automated tool for collecting and analyzing over-the-air data in a JTRS test environment. The tool will provide Automated Analysis of Data link Transmissions (AADT) where a single JTRS terminal may be part of one or more JTRS networks. In the JTRS environment, the possibility exists for a single terminal to be connected to ...

  8. Automated Detection and Response Tools for Co-orbiting Satellite Threats


    Defensive counter space requires the continual observation, identification and assessment of potential threats. Resource management decisions must be made, either autonomously or by mission commanders, to protect satellite assets as threat information evolves in real time. This proposal is for an innovative model-based automated resource management system, that combines threat detection, response ...

  10. Cost Modeling Interoperability and Integration

    SBC: PRICE SYSTEMS, L.L.C            Topic: OSD05CM1

    The Life Cycle Interoperability Framework allows an analyst to establish a cost basis for a program or project and carry that basis throughout the life of the project seamlessly. The LCIF is based on a Service Oriented Architecture. Further analysis is needed to validate this concept and assure it is commercially viable. Phase 1 results indicate that there is a commercial interest and the techno ...
