  1. Development, Systems Integration, and Flight Testing of an 80 kW Hybrid Electric Aircraft Propulsion System


    We propose to design an autonomous VTOL cargo aircraft with a gross weight of 800 lbs that will incorporate LaunchPoint’s hybrid electric generator and power management system and phase-controlled motor/drive technology. The resulting aircraft will be capable of vertical takeoff and landing, long range, and quiet flight. In Phase I, Georgia Tech will design the aircraft that will integrate the h ...

  2. Three-Photon, Compact Rydberg Radio Receiver

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF20AT002

    In this program, Freedom Photonics will develop a novel RF sensor based on quantum physics. Freedom Photonics will utilize and further develop its DFB laser platforms in the infrared for use in this RF atomic sensor in both military and commercial applications. The atomic nature of the RF sensor being developed provides benefits over traditional technologies such as reducing CSWAP while improvi ...

  3. Zero Vulnerability Technology: Leveraging Micropatching and Intelligent Software Scrambling for Next Generation Northern Command Application Security

    SBC: ARMS CYBER DEFENSE, INC.            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Homogeneous software applications employed throughout NORTHCOM pose a huge opportunity for adversaries to scale exploits within the defense ecosystem. Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) applications specifically pose a huge attack vector due to the large reliance on open source components containing publicly disclosable vulnerabilities. ARMS is providing solutions around novel zero vulnerability technol ...

  4. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...

  5. Cross-Functional Next Generation Energy Storage Using Liquefied Gas Electrolytes

    SBC: SOUTH 8 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Within Air Force, the safety of the warfighter and maintaining a technological advantage is paramount. Having the highest performing technology will increase odds of a successful and safe mission. Several Air Force missions (ex., eVTOL, SmallSats) are requiring unique power sources operating with higher energy, higher power, wider operation temperature, and higher safety requirements. South 8 ...

  6. Low-Cost Pitch Momentum Bias Control Solution for CubeSats

    SBC: CATENI, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Cateni has identified a market opportunity for the development of a low-cost, low-SWaP attitude control solution for CubeSat-class missions.  Existing 3-axis stabilization solutions for CubeSats perform well but are over-kill for a large segment of missions that have modest requirements associated with nadir or inertial pointing.  A pitch momentum bias (PMB) solution can satisfy such requireme ...

  9. Advanced Extreme Rapid Deployment Emergency Whole Airframe Recovery Parachute System for Urban Air Mobility

    SBC: Aviation Safety Resources, Inc.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Urban/Advanced Air Mobility (UAM/AAM) technology is advancing rapidly with over 300 designs underway.  Primary to the challenges of an electric Vertical Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) is what will happen if the vehicle suffers a failure in flight (especially in VTOL).  Establishment of a level of safety is paramount in the success or failure of the UAM market. Currently, there is not a practical r ...
