  1. HQ-55 VTOL UAS for Ship Based Operation

    SBC: L3 Latitude, LLC            Topic: 832

    The Hybrid Quadrotor concept, developed by Latitude Engineering, combines the high power density of electric motors and propellers with the high energy density of a piston engine and liquid fuel. Together, each technology enables maximum performance in HQ's two regimes of flight: the electric system is responsible for lift while hovering (high power, short endurance), and the gas engine gives long ...

  2. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF17AT005

    The objective of the proposed research is to demonstrate high-power, scalable, and stable laser sources at specific wavelengths with narrow linewidth matched to the single velocity class of mesospheric atomic sodium for guide star application. The operation at tailored wavelengths, 1141 nm and 1178 nm (for 589 nm via frequency doubling) is addressed by the use of bandgap-engineered optically pumpe ...

  3. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: TPhotonics Inc.            Topic: AF17AT005

    The purpose of this proposed research is to develop and commercialize a novel two color sodium guidestar laser operating simultaneously at 589 nm and 1141 nm. Our patented T-cavity design combined with VECSEL technology will be the basis for the guidestar development. The polychromatic laser guidestar (PLGS) system being proposed currently does not exist and would allow for the correction of atmos ...

  4. Three-sided Pyramid Wavefront Sensor for High Sensitivity Wavefront Control

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF17AT006

    Fully develop the analytic theory of wavefront reconstruction from measurements made with a three-sided pyramid wavefront sensor (PWFS3), including the effects of variable modulation, photon and camera noise sources, and object angular extent. Carry out performance predictions of the PWFS3 through numerical modeling. Compare the sensitivity of the PWFS3 to a conventional Shack-Hartmann sensor and ...

  5. Practical Application of Molecular-Scale Modeling to Problems at the Grain Scale and Larger


    The mechanical testing of energetic materials makes experimentation highly expensive and hazardous. Therefore, an accurate and practical modeling approach is necessary to predict their mechanical properties. Numerous atomistic to continuum models exist to predict the properties of energetic materials. However, these methods are not coupled with each other in a systematic and practical way; thus, ...

  6. Investigating Satellites Cataloged as Debris (ISCAD)

    SBC: GEOST, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT04

    GEOST has teamed with the University of Arizona to create a one-person mobile telescope, mount, and camera able to track nearly all cataloged space debris.In Phase II of the ISCAD effort also called RoboScope, GEOST and the University of Arizona will implement the Phase I design in functional hardware and software, and then demonstrate the mobile observatory at the customer site.GEOST brings the O ...

  7. High-Efficiency Radiation-Hard Solar Array Interface to Spacecraft Power System

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF162007

    Alphacore proposes to design and implement the desired Analog to Information Processor (AIP) converter capable of directly converting RF (radio frequency) signals to information. Analog to feature/direct-information converters has been widely researched across various methods of implementation (including use of optics, magnetic field storage and so on). The hardware implementation of such systems ...

  9. Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) for Moderate Data Rate Communications (MMDR)

    SBC: W5 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF171043

    Warfighter applications using narrowband Satcom must transition to the Mobile User Objective System. This project defines the work necessary for that transition and provides the design of a test bed for testing applications over MUOS. The project recommen

  10. Synthesis of HAN and HEHN in a Continuous Mix Process

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Production of hydroxylamine nitrate (HAN) and hydroxyethyl hydrazine nitrate (HEHN) is of great concern for the manufacture of AF-315E. Current stockpiles of heritage ingredients held by AFRL are being depleted and those manufacturers are no longer in exi
