  1. Thermal Spray Dashboard/Knowledge Management System


    The USAF repair depots expend tremendous amounts of resources applying high technology thermal spray coatings to improve the performance of components and systems. In general, thermal spray application processes are complex, requires high cost equipment that are expensive to operate, need highly trained personnel and necessitate constant verification testing to ascertain the coatings meet requirem ...

  2. Innovative Solutions for Multi-Rotor Flight Endurance


    We propose to continue the successful development of an innovative ‘linear’ multirotor topology. Simple rotors are positioned to maximize disk area which will reduce power consumption while navigating narrow spaces. Independent control of pitch, roll, yaw and heave is accomplished like a typical quad, without the added complexity of swashplates or tilting mechanisms. Additional rotors ...

  3. Real-time Single Chip Target Acquisition and Tracking for sUAV Gimbal

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF182085

    Over the last several years there have been significant advances in algorithms involving targeting tasks onboard airborne gimbals. These tasks include moving target indication (MTI), discriminative correlation filters (DCF) for click-to-track correlation tracking, as well as target classification via neural networks. While all these algorithms provide significant functionality, they have tradition ...

  5. Macro Weather Sensor

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF191010

    The U.S. Air Force Battlefield Air Operations (BAO) is seeking portable environmental observation devices that replicate the automated gathering and reporting of the same measurements currently performed by the AN/TMQ-53 for Service Level D airfield support. To address this need, ISI proposes to enhance our existing Macro Weather Sensor (MaWS) system to meet and/or exceed current AN/TMQ-53 capabil ...

  7. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  8. Development of a Functional Balloon-borne GNSS-RO System Prototype

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    The SBIR Phase II proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in designing, and developing, and testing a system prototype to perform Global Navigation Satellite System radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a high-altitude balloon platform. NCL will continue building from the positive results achieved in Phase I that successfully demonstrated the feasibility of performing balloon-borne GN ...

  9. Sea Tag-SP: A family of acoustic enabled satellite tags for spawning detection and more

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Phase-1 demonstrated the powerful and unusual remote sensing opportunities available by adding acoustic signal detection to pop-up satellite tags (PSAT). The time and location of spawning define the starting point in the life history of fish. Yet this event, which is of critical importance to fishery researchers and managers seeking to gain an understanding of distinct reproductive populations and ...

  10. Low-cost Mooring Location Beacon for Coastal Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 825

    Subsurface mooring beacons are used to provide notifications and assist in locating moored assets that have surfaced and are free drifting. Their nominal design is driven by the requirements for offshore use where they need to survive extreme depths and remote deployment, most often using satellite constellations for communication and geo-location. Existing beacons serve their purpose well, but th ...
