  1. Nonintrusive fiber interferometer for ablative TPS recession measurement

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The next generation of hypersonic and reentry vehicles being designed for the Department of Defense (DoD) applications will require advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS). While new TPS shields are under development, a key difficulty is the ability to predict and diagnose TPS performance. ElectroDynamic Applications (EDA) has been developing an optical diagnosticfor use during testi ...

  2. Hybrid Chemical-Electric Propulsion (HCEP)

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: The proposed Phase I efforts seek to develop a dual-mode Hybrid ChemicalElectric Propulsion thruster concept design based on the extensive microwave torch/arcjet experience of PSU and Hall and ion experience of EDA. The primary focus of the Phase I effort will be demonstrate the operation of an ionic liquid microwave thruster in the high-T/P regime and the basic operation of a Hall and ...

  3. Metamaterial-based MEM ultra-low-loss non-dispersive phased-array antenna

    SBC: A. BROWN DESIGN            Topic: AF11BT28

    ABSTRACT: Under this collaborative effort between A Brown Design, Michigan State University, and Raytheon, a novel phase shifter design is proposed. The phase shifter design builds upon existing RF MEMS capacitive technology by co-integrating MEMS switches with metamaterial unit cells. The metamterial unit cell design is versatile and allows significant degree of freedom in integration and design ...

  4. Satellite Drag Model for Near Real Time Operation

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: AF11BT29

    ABSTRACT: Michigan Aerospace Corporation, in cooperation with the University of Michigan"s Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences, will refine existing upper atmospheric models and apply them to the problem of predicting satellite drag. The primary goal of this Phase 1 project is to run a fully validated version of University of Michigan"s Global Ionosphere Thermosphere Model (GI ...

  5. Passive Wireless Corrosion-Monitoring Tags

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: A12aT001

    Aircraft, missiles, and vehicle structures are susceptible to corrosion. Engines, transmissions, blades, rocket motors, canisters, and other system components include materials that degrade over time and are not often checked. Recently, the application of condition-based maintenance (CBM) techniques has reduced lifecycle maintenance costs through the identification of maintenance needs after analy ...

  6. Formalism for Millimeter-wave Modeling of RADAR Cross Sections

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT002

    In this STTR project, we propose a novel computational technology for analyzing millimeter and submillimeter wave scattering from complex and electromagnetically extended objects and environments. The crux of our formalism lies in a technique for rapidly calculating and coherently adding fields produced by different scatterer constituents, ranging from conducting flat and rough surfaces to penetra ...

  7. Landmark Navigation for Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: MOBILE INTELLIGENCE CORP.            Topic: A12aT030

    Mobile Intelligence Corporation (MIC) and Wayne State University propose a virtual teleoperation and visual landmark navigation system for UGV teleoperation in buildings, tunnels and caves. The challenge is search and navigation in complex structures with sparse visual cues, high-latency low-bandwidth communications, UGVs with low-cost vision sensors, and only intermittent static 2D visual feedba ...

  8. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: We will design, fabricate and test a quantum processing unit (QPU) based on a symmetric ion trap chip. The trap will provide trapping depth similar to that obtain with macrosize Paul traps. In addition to the ion trap, this chip will incorporate integrated optical systems which will deliver the light fields required by the elementary quantum processing unit (or quantum sensing unit). ...

  9. Direct Conversion of CO2 to Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuel

    SBC: M3 Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: AF103252

    ABSTRACT: This project will investigate the feasibility of converting carbon dioxide (CO2) and water into liquid hydrocarbon fuel using solar energy and the same thermodynamic principles that enable biological photosynthesis; however, existing industrial technologies and processes will be integrated and substituted for biological processes. The significance of the artificial photosynthesis proces ...

  10. Situation Awareness Optimal Linkage and Reporting Intelligence System (SOLARIS)

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF112026

    ABSTRACT: The combined effects of data overload, source variability, and the effects of a wide variety of cognitive biases add enormous complexity to the already-complex task of intelligence analysis. Given the criticality of the analysis task, it is imperative that effective tools be developed for mitigating the effects of ever-increasing data loads coming from existing and emerging collection ...
