  1. Small Integrated HFI Sensor for the AVR-2B

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM11001

    "SSSC is pleased to propose the development and delivery of a Hostile Fire Indication Sensor (HFIS) based on the Phase I design concept. The resulting system will limit the number of circuit card assemblies to two: one for the short wave infrared (SWIR)

  2. A Hybrid Thermal Management System for Space Electro-Optical Payloads

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103072

    ABSTRACT: Advanced space-borne electro-optical payloads require cooling at temperatures of 10 to 20 K. Cooling loads for these detectors will range from 0.25 W to 1.0 W at the primary load site, with additional loads at higher temperatures. During this program, we propose to build and test a multi-stage hybrid cryocooler that is optimized for cooling at a primary load temperature of 10 to 20 K. ...

  3. A CubeSat-Compatible Neutral Wind Sensor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121066

    ABSTRACT: CubeSats provide a new, low-cost platform for space weather missions. They enable new mission paradigms, such as the ability to perform multiple measurements of the same physical phenomena globally from several satellites, in contrast to high accuracy measurements of multiple phenomena on the same spacecraft. Flight-tested neutral wind sensors must be miniaturized to fit into these mu ...

  4. Passive Optical Combustion Sensors for Scramjet Engine Control

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121191

    ABSTRACT: Dual-mode scramjet engines must operate over a wide range of flight Mach numbers. Closed loop engine control is necessary to maintain thrust and flame stability while preventing unstart over the large flight envelope. High-frequency sensors and actuators will be a key component of future scramjet Full Authority Digital Engine Controllers (FADECs) due to the short time scales associate ...

  5. Hostile Fire Indicator for Remotely Piloted Aircraft

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT: Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose the design of a multi-threat hostile fire indication (HFI) system for remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA). The HFI system consist of a wide field of view sensor head that employs small multi-spectral imagers in the short-wave infrared (SWIR), with the spectral bands selected specifically for detection of small arms fire (SAF), ...

  6. Compact Adaptive Condenser With a Built-in Thermal Switch

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121174

    ABSTRACT: Next-generation thermal management systems in advanced aircraft must utilize all available heat sinks, including fuel, ram air, and bleed air flows to effectively manage aircraft thermal loads. To this end, we propose to develop a compact, highly integrated condenser to prevent heat rejection capacity reduction in very hot environments. The condenser has a built-in thermal switch. Wh ...

  7. Anti-Exploitation Software Protection Systems

    SBC: Siege Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA1

    State-of-the-art software protection and anti-tamper systems move critical software and data"out-of-band"to the adversary, by using a hypervisor or on"secure"hardware. Unfortunately, the systems running this software are built using untrusted commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts. Supply chain threats to critical components, such as hardware or firmware Trojans, have invalidated the assumption tha ...

  8. Advanced Fuel System for Low-Bandwidth Screech Suppression

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103197

    ABSTRACT: Combustion stability is critical to the performance of augmented military jet engines. Instabilities such as screech can result in reduced augmentor performance, blowout, or even catastrophic failure. Screech remains a difficult problem to predict and mitigate, and its occurrence can limit the operational flight envelope of military systems. Many of the passive techniques used to sup ...

  9. Passive Optical Sensor for Real Engine Diagnostics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103219

    ABSTRACT: Combustion instabilities, such as screech, are an ongoing challenge for augmented military propulsion systems. Diagnostics that elucidate the mechanism(s) of combustion instability are needed to increase the robustness of current engines and to develop improved design rules for future systems. Diagnostic measurements in augmentors are challenging due to the hostile environment and lim ...

  10. Improved Mass Balancing of Turbo Machine Rotors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112166

    ABSTRACT: The efficient, effective balancing of jet engine rotors and subassemblies continues to be a challenge for key aerospace applications. While manufacturing methods for balancing have improved significantly over the last ten years, measurement methods and procedures and fixturing have not advanced at the same pace. Modern jet engines require multiple parts and subassemblies to be balance ...
