  4. 24/7 Monitoring of Active Satellites using Passive Radio-Frequency (RF) Sensors

    SBC: Rincon Research Corporation            Topic: AF171026

    Rincon Research Corporation (RRC) has developed a low-cost passive-RF-based system that generates high-accuracy tracking observations using the RF signals broadcast by active satellites. In Phase I, RRC demonstrated that this system can track active deep-space satellites 24x7 in all weather, that it can distinguish closely spaced objects (CSOs) by their different RF emissions, and that the resulti ...

  5. 3-D Space Qualifiable Field Programmable Gate Array

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: AF083208

    Tezzaron proposes to use its 3D wafer stacking technology to produce a true 3 dimensional fabric of programmable logic. A benefit of 3D integration is the fundamental increase in interconnect. FPGAs by their nature use huge amounts of interconnect and in normal 2D implementations, they often have an industry leading number of metal layers used. It has been well established that FPGAs operator slow ...

  6. 3D Tomography-Assisted Mechanistic Fatigue Modeling and Life Prediction for Dual Microstructure Heat Treated Aeroturbine Disks

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: AF083077

    To meet the increasing performance requirements of modern aeroturbine engines, a significant opportunity exists with the Dual Microstructure Heat Treatment (DMHT) technology for nickel-based aeroturbine disks. However, use of DMHT results in gradient microstructures and a major hurdle in perfecting this technology is a lack of mechanistic mechanical property modeling in the gradient region. QuesTe ...

  7. 64MB+ Radiation-Hardened, Non-Volatile Memory for Space

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF141250

    ABSTRACT: Alphacore and its research partner will perform radiation effect studies and radiation-hard circuit development on samples made out of the two existing resistive random access memory materials. Multiple cell type materials and several memory architectures will be investigated. One memory architecture is extremely promising for radiation hardened benefits. Select memory cells will be eva ...

  8. 64MB+ Radiation-Hardened, Non-Volatile Memory for Space

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: AF141250

    ABSTRACT: ReRAM has made significant progress over the last few years and is ready for development by early adopters. Tezzaron proposes to create a multilayer 3D assembled ReRAM memory device using Rambus ReRAM technology and Honeywell RH wafers. The phase II target device will be radiation hardened, low power, non-volatile and have a density in excess of 512Mbits. BENEFIT: A ReRAM device offer ...

  9. 64MB+ Radiation-Hardened, Non-Volatile Memory for Space

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: AF141250

    ABSTRACT:In Phase II Tezzaron will design a 2 layer 8Mb ReRAM (RRAM) memory device, extendable to 17 layers or 128Gb as a test chip or 1Gb as a final device. The first layer of the design is a controller layer with power control, drivers, user interface circuitry (i.e. peripheral circuitry), and sense amplifiers. The second layer of the design holds the memory cells and minimal circuitry to allow ...

  10. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...
