  3. Radiation Hardened Digital to Analog Converter

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF151089

    ABSTRACT:There is a need for a moderate resolution, high speed, radiation hardened (RH) Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) to support new satellite developments. Scientic proposes to develop a high speed, radiation-hardened DAC to be produced on-shore in a trusted semiconductor foundry to meet the data conversion needs of the US Air Force (AF) and other military and aerospace system developers. To ...

  4. Advanced Experimental Design and Modeling and Simulation for Testing Large Format Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Nou Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF151173

    ABSTRACT:nou Systems proposes an innovative analysis and test methodology for testing space-based high-resolution wide field-of-view (WFOV) focal plane arrays (FPAs). Current space sensor test facilities are incapable of fully testing state-of-the-art high-resolution WFOV sensors without infrastructure modifications. The test methodology described in this proposal focuses on testing only a subset ...

  5. Infrared Target Collection System (ITCS)

    SBC: North Star Systems Inc            Topic: AF151178

    ABSTRACT:The proposed system design provides a capability to collect target signatures faster, and at more aspect angles from a locus of points on a hemisphere centered on the target. State of the art communications channels are used to transmit radiometric infrared data to remote data recorders. Payload positioning may be done by manual or pre-programmed control with precision GPS and inertial se ...

  6. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: Analysis and Applications Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: Analysis and Applications and Associates, Inc. (AAA) proposes to develop software that evaluates effects of the hypersonic flow environment on electro-optic/infrared optical systems and vehicles for specific hypersonic flight profiles. We propose a high fidelity definition of the near-field flow, using the latest CFD and turbulence modeling technologies, to determine the environment from ...

  8. Radiation Hardened Cache Memory

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: AF141096

    ABSTRACT:Cache memory has been used effectively for years to improve the computation performance of microprocessors. In microprocessors, the processor operations are performed on data contained within the register file via instructions that are loaded from main memory. Cache was implemented as a smaller, faster bridge between the register file and main memory to complement the processor speed. Sys ...

  9. Inflatable Tracking Antenna- 2.4 Meter

    SBC: GATR Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04088

    ABSTRACT:This technology development effort focuses on introducing a prototype 2.4 meter aperture, deployable Satellite Communication (SATCOM) ground station. Over the past three years, a pathfinder GATR tracking ground station was fabricated and tested by tracking different satellites in low Earth orbit at multiple frequency bands (S, X, Ka). This Phase II SBIR effort focuses on maturing the t ...
