  1. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  2. Weather Information Services Supporting Civilian UAS Operations

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A201

    We build a system that supports the weather information needs of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) planning to fly in the National Airspace System (NAS). This weather information service will supply information to UAS Ground Control Stations (GCSs) from the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) 4D Weather Data Cube, the Single Authoritative Source (SAS) for aviation weather informati ...

  3. FACET as a Collaborative, Open Source UAS Research Platform

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A201

    We build a tool that accelerates Research and Development (R & D) aimed at introducing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS). In the proposed effort, FACET will form the basis of a collaborative R & D platform, an environment where users can share open source software modules (software and data sets developed to reside outside the FACET Application Progra ...

  4. Scandate Cathode for High Power Long Life Electric Propulsion

    SBC: E BEAM INC            Topic: E101

    Scandate cathodes are proposed as a way to boost performance and life for electric space propulsion systems. This company has recently demonstrated breakthrough performance on these cathodes in other formats. We have demonstrated emission of 5 Amps/cm2 at 850 degrees CB, which is 200 degrees C below that of conventional cathodes. At this temperature they should live at least 100,000 hours. Thi ...

  5. SWIFT-HPX- High Data Rate Ka-band Commications for Small Satellites

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H905

    Leveraging TUI's SWIFT software defined radio (SDR) architecture, we propose to develop a 100 Mbps downlink and intersatellite crosslink capability with ranging and timing synchronization capabilities to enable more sophisticated CubeSat and small satellite missions. This effort will focus on designing a Ka-band communications solution including a high-gain patch antenna array and Ka-band RF ...

  6. High Performance Plasma Channel Insulators for High Power Hall Thrusters

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S303

    NASA missions for planetary exploration require high power, long-life Hall thrusters. However, thruster power and lifetime are limited by the erosion of plasma channel walls. Current plasma channel insulator materials, such as BN or Borosil, have the required low secondary electron emission (SEE) but are susceptible to xenon plasma erosion. New plasma channel insulator materials with low SEE yi ...

  7. Advanced Green Micropropulsion System

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T201

    Systima in collaboration with the University of Washington will develop a high performance, advanced green monopropellant microthruster (0.1?1.0 N) for small- and micro-satellites. The microthruster utilizes a high energy density HAN-based monopropellant AF-M315E, and a novel injection system to maximize thruster performance. The propellant is non-toxic making it easy to store, integrate into mo ...

  8. Advanced Capabilities Medical Suction Device

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H1202

    A compact microgravity and hypogravity compatible vacuum device is proposed to provide medical suction and containment of extracted fluids. The proposed aspirator will draw up to 40 L/min of air and produce a nominal vacuum of 500-mm Hg, which is comparable to commercially available medical aspirators. The unit will also provide a means for separation and containment of up to 1000 mL of aspirate ...

  9. Flexible, High Performance Microlens Array Technologies for Integral Field Spectrographs

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S103

    For the purposes of advancing integral field spectrograph (IFS) microlens capabilities, a new class of high-quality optics-grade nanostructured organic-inorganic nanocomposite three-dimensional (3D) gradient index (GRIN) microlens optical materials is proposed. In the Phase I program, solid state freeform (SFF) fabrication of high contrast 3D-gradient-index microlens array elements will be demonst ...

  10. A Compact In Situ Sensor for Measurement of Absorption and Backscattering in Natural Waters

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: S109

    We propose to develop an active sensor for in situ measurement of the inherent optical properties (IOPs) absorption and backscattering at multiple wavelengths. Multi- or hyper-spectral absorption of particles and dissolved materials is routinely measured in the laboratory and in situ in order to characterize, for example, the quantities and types of phytoplankton based on concentrations of specifi ...
