  1. Ruggedized Agile PNT System (RAPS) for Missile in GPS-Challenged Environments

    SBC: MAYFLOWER COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY, INC.            Topic: A17118

    The objective of this SBIR program is to improve operational performance of US Army missile systems by enhancing position, navigation, and timing (PNT) for operation in GPS contested environments. The PNT system for the missile platforms will also require the system to be ruggedized to withstand shock during launch and operation with speeds spanning many mach.Mayflower proposes to develop and demo ...

  2. Nonflammable Battery

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF173005

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will demonstrate a non-flammable, high power rechargeable battery design capable of 20C discharge rates after activation from an inert, inactive state. This battery will be constructed by combining PSIs non-flammable electrolyte and high active (HA) coating technologies. During the Phase I, PSI will demonstrate that the electrolyte is non-flammable both as an aerosol a ...

  3. Additively Manufactured Fractal Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF173006

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will develop an innovative refrigeration condenser for airborne applications based on PSIs established fractal heat exchanger geometry. This configuration is 60% smaller and 20% lighter than comparable heat exchangers because it uses a branched feed network instead of pipe headers (the heaviest parts of existing heat exchangers).Test articles will be produced with a vo ...

  4. Probabilistic Programming for Analyzing Complex Systems (PPACS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF173009

    Development planning is a critical task in the US Air Force (USAF) that is required to efficiently acquire new and improved vehicles, analyze strategic and tactical gaps in the USAFs missions, guide investment strategies of new technologies, and plan for future workforce skills. One of the key development planning tasks is analyzing the impacts of alternative designs on the potential system of sys ...

  5. Collective / Cooperative Navigation

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF173011

    Maintaining accurate navigation in GPS-denied conditions is critical for the U.S. military.Making inter-platform measurements and sharing data between multiple cooperating platforms has the potential to significantly enhance navigation accuracy, mitigating the loss of GPS.System & Technology Research and West Virginia University are developing a novel software framework for such cooperative naviga ...

  6. An Advanced, Insensitive Munition (IM) Compliant, Multi-Mode Energetic Material System for Active Protection Interceptor Munition Systems

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF173012

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to demonstrate and quantify a unique high performance, insensitive munition compliant, dual mode energetic material that would allow stable propulsive and detonative operations. This new formulation has a high specific impulse and density specific impulse while simultaneously retaining the detonative performances of modern explosives. This unique low-cost energetic ...

  7. Model Based Systems Engineering Big Data Analytics

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: AF173015

    The amount of cross-domain data available to the designer today, and the speed at which it continues to grow is unprecedented. The data often come from heterogeneous sources that were developed independently, without a consensus on the syntax or semantics. The integration of the heterogeneous data is possible because of the access to its respective metadata, or data about data. The availability of ...

  8. VISHWA SPACE DEBRIS ENGAGEMENT AND DEORBITING SYSTEM

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: AF173016

    Spent Rocket Bodies (SRB) from decades of launch of satellites into Earth orbit are the largest component of space debris by mass, and they may pose a significant present and future threat to operation of space systems in certain orbits. Most of these objects will remain in place for several more decades before they re-enter the Earths atmosphere and eventually burn up. Recognizing the broader cha ...

  9. Wireless Technology for Probes and Accessories for Nondestructive Inspection Testing Instruments

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: AF121214

    Aircraft structure nondestructive testing (NDT) is performed in a field or depot setting depending primarily on the amount of disassembly required to gain access to the inspection area. In order to reach set field and depot inspection intervals, the minimum detectable flaw size (Andi) must be sufficiently small. Legacy NDT methods with Andi's that are too large require out of cycle inspections whi ...

  10. Just In Time (JIT) Aircraft Maintenance System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF121225

    Roughly 40% of USAF maintenance records have poorly coded work unit codes.This degrades aircraft pre-induction analysis and fleet-wide analysis of top drivers.Manual methods to scrub the data take years to develop for each air platform.Cybernet designed a machine learning algorithm to automatically correct coding errors without expert input.The Smart Data Cleanser (SDC) performed 4 years of work i ...
