  1. Compact Vapor Cell Technology for Rydberg‐Atom RF Metrology

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: NA

    ColdQuanta seeks to develop compact vapor cells designed specifically for high-accuracy RF metrology with Rydberg atoms. Sensors utilizing these vapor cells can take advantage of Rydberg atoms’ exceptional sensitivity to RF, microwave, and millimeter radiation between 1 and 1000 GHz. Featuring resolutions down to the uV/cm level, the accuracy of these devices will be at least ten times better th ...

  2. Plasmid DNA positive control standards for molecular environments assays

    SBC: Pisces Molecular LLC            Topic: 843

    The proliferation of sensitive DNA-based assays for detecting the presence of specific harmful, toxic or invasive organisms, as well as the simple reagent and instrumentation requirements for these assays has made widespread and more frequent testing for these different organisms possible. However, a frequent problem with such assays is the lack of available, well-quantified positive control stand ...

  3. Position Error Maps for GPS/GNSS

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: 831

    As our nation’s dependence on reliable satellite navigation systems for precise Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) applications increases, any errors/uncertainties or degradation of service will have significant life, safety, and economic impacts. Ionospheric ‘space weather’ is one of the largest sources of error in PNT applications that use the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) s ...

  5. SatCAT: The Satellite Charging Assessment Tool

    SBC: Space Hazards Applications LLC            Topic: 842W

    The purpose of this project is to develop a Satellite Charging Assessment Tool (SatCAT) that will provide satellite operators/manufacturers with information to quickly and confidently determine whether anomalous satellite behavior observed on orbit results from changes in the space radiation environment. The intense radiation surrounding Earth can damage electronic components causing temporary mal ...

  6. Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) for characterizing invertebrate vision

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    In partnership with the Strausfeld Lab at the University of Arizona, BNS proposes to develop an Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) based on our previous VIS/NIR Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP) design. Using BNS-developed liquid crystal (LC) spatial light modulators (SLMs), this display will provide high-speed multispectral wide-field visual stimulus to invertebrates ov ...

  7. Standardized Interface for Satellite Ground System Integration Technologies

    SBC: Braxton Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF162003

    In order to reduce the costs and schedule required for ground system deployments, a Common Simulation Environment (CSE) can be used that allows both the factory bus/payload integration and operational TT&C systems to integrate quickly and effectively. With the advent of Enterprise Ground Services (EGS) and the Goddard Mission Services Evolution Center (GMSEC) Bus there is the opportunity to provid ...

  8. Index, Export and Search Archived Data for Enterprise Ground Satellite Command and Control Systems from Multiple Sources

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF162004

    DF&NN and MarkLogic will enable fast search and retrieval of big data. Detection and characterization processes both for real-time and after-the-fact analysis will maintain themselves based upon user goals and thus will not require substantial expert interaction to create and maintain rule sets. The resulting new Enterprise Ground Satellite Command and Control (E-GSCC) system will learn normal beh ...
