  1. Hybrid Battery/Supercapacitor Energy Storage Device

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15AT010

    ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA) and Dr. Massoud Pedram at the University of Southern California (USC) have successfully completed a Phase I STTR effort for the development of a lithium ion (Li-ion)/ supercapacitor hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) to afford pulse power characteristics (projected ~10 kW/kg) in a high energy system (100-150 Wh/kg). The system is enabled via a constant cur ...

  3. Optimization of Fatigue Test Signal Compression Using The Wavelet Transform

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N18BT029

    ATA Engineering has developed a wavelet-based damage squeezing methodology for generating optimally compressed fatigue test signals that produce an equivalent amount of fatigue damage in a predictably reduced amount of time compared to the baseline (uncompressed) signals. Fatigue-critical signal characteristics (e.g., magnitude, phase, frequency, and sequencing relationships) are identified in the ...

  4. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC, LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Laser guide stars (LGS) are artificial sources of light produced by laser-induced fluorescence from sodium atoms in the mesosphere between 85 km and 100 km altitude. The fluorescence can be detected on the ground with a telescope and used as a reference for compensating atmospheric aberrations in astronomical and space observations in conjunction with an adaptive optics system. Sodium LGS are vita ...

  5. Reconfigurable/Cognitive Optical Communications

    SBC: Vulcan Wireless, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT010

    As the number of optical communication terminals proliferate there will be a need to have these terminals interoperate.  In the past, optical terminals were designed with a single purpose in mind.  New space constellations are requiring non-RF crosslink solutions.  It is expected that there will be a large number of both commercial and military systems providing crosslinks and space to earth li ...

  6. Mid-Infrared Laser Absorption Spectroscopy for Multi-Parameter Rotating Detonation Analysis

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT011

    New, innovative laser spectroscopy technology will be developed for performance quantification and combustion characterization in a Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE). The effort will push the state of the art in tunable laser absorption spectroscopy to enable fast time response diagnostics of the extreme pressure and temperature conditions of an RDRE.

  7. Tunable Bioinspired Spatially Varying Random Photonic Crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT017

    Naturally occurring periodic nanostructures have long been of interest due to their striking optical effects and potential biological roles. They have been recognized not only as interesting curiosities but potential design inspirations that can lead to improvements in biochemical sensors, laser surgery, photovoltaics, and other mission-critical applications. This work will focus on one such appli ...

  9. Using the Conditional Moment Closure Method to Assess the Effects of Turbulence Chemical Kinetics

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: A16AT001

    Predicting the emission signature and radar cross-section of rocket exhaust plumes is of vital interest to the Missile Defense Agency and U.S. Army to protect the U.S. homeland and our forces abroad.  The current STTR Phase II project has shown that a single-conditioned Premixed Conditional Moment Closure (PCMC) can employ detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms while efficiently modeling combustion ...

  10. Resilient Control Electronics

    SBC: Iris Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA17T003

    As the orbital space around the earth gets more and more crowded with civilian and military reconnaissance, weather, tracking, communication, and navigation satellites - civilian and military users become increasingly dependent on the services provided by these spacecraft. This situation increases the possibility of offense actions against some or all of these spacecraft. The possibility calls for ...
