  1. Vacuum Arc Nano Thrusters for Nanosatellite Spacecraft Constellations

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "AASC, in collaboration with team member General Dynamics, Space Propulsion Systems, proposes to advance the Vacuum Arc Thruster (VAT) one step closer to flight qualification status. Phase I successfully demonstrated the low system mass and performancecharacteristics necessary to support "precision propulsion" requirements for constellation based, nano satellite missions. Phase II will benchmark t ...

  2. High Power, High Voltage, Ultra-Fast UV Triggered Diamond Switch

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "The successful Phase I high power, high voltage UV triggered diamond switch effort has set the stage for this Phase II program, in response to commercial drivers found in the directed energy weapon, military radar, high speed rail transportation, and powerutility industrial sectors. The 1 MW power switching laboratory demonstrations for periods up to 10's of nanoseconds will be extended to protot ...

  3. Ultra-Wide Band Surveillance Radar

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal seeks to investigate the feasibility of using a stepped frequency, wideband radar for the wide area surveillance of fixed and mobile assets. The proposed radar was developed with sponsorship from the National Institute of Justice forconcealed weapons detection, and is currently being used on an AFRL program to develop a wall penetrating, imaging sensor system.The proposed radar has ...

  4. 3-D Modeling from Video

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "When humans move and observe, they combine information from the eyes and inner ears to form a mental world model using perception of linear and angular motion as well as visual images. We propose that recent advances in projective geometry, positionestimates from inertial and magnetic sensors, and rigid body kinematics can be fused to provide a powerful new way of effectively generating complete ...

  5. A Computational Model of Information Fusion for Situation Assessment

    SBC: QUIMBA SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The overall objectives of this proposal are: to develop computational techniques for the information fusion problem as it relates to Situation Monitoring and Assessment.We decompose the Situation Assessment problem into two parts. The first part is the mapping of the raw state of the world (the structural description of the world) to semantic situational features which are relevant to the target ...

  6. Gas Turbine Pre-Compressor Cooling Using Water and Oxidizer Injection for Small Access to Space Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    "The development of a pre-compressor mass injection system for extending the flight Mach number and altitude of conventional military afterburning turbo jet and turbofan engines is proposed. The injection of water and liquid oxidizer such as liquid oxygencan be used to enhance the performance of these engines so that they may power the reusable air-breathing first stage of a space access vehicle. ...

  7. Small, Heavy Fuel, Compression Ignition Small UAV Engines

    SBC: Advanced Propulsion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The OPOC JP8 engines for OAV's planned as a standardized 1.2hp to 12hp family, are two-stroke Compression Ignition engines, consisting of opposed cylinders, each having two opposed pistons. All pistons are connected to a single crankshaft located betweenthe two opposed cylinders by unconventional (long=low friction) connecting rods. Intake and Exhaust ports are located at the ends of the cylinder ...

  9. Long-Stroke Isolation System for Large Flexible Space Structures

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed SBIR Phase 1 program will conceptually develop a lightweight long stroke isolation system for large flexible space structures, and ready this technology for a follow-on SBIR Phase 2 hardware validation program. The isolation system technologyto be developed will provide mechanical/electrical connection and dynamic isolation between large steerable deployable appendage and spacecraft ...

  10. Innovative Space Materials and Structures

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of the proposed Phase 1 R&D project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a new structural architecture for deployable space structures: Monolithic Elastically Deployable Lattice Structures (MEDLS). MEDLS has the potential to offerorder-of-magnitude reductions in structural mass over current deployable technologies. The architecture incorporates two key features. First, higher tha ...
