  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. Dynamic DC Source and Load System with Energy Recycle Capability

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The development of batteries, fuel cells, flywheels, and other portable energy sources requires power electronics devices to test performance parameters. In most cases, the power electronics devices serve as a load, distributing energy to the grid. Forbatteries, the devices can also serve as a source of energy for charging. To date, these devices have only been available and cost-effective for ...

  8. 72kw Hydrogen Fuel Genset

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The Clean Air Act requires flight line Ground Support Equipment (GSE) to convert from highly polluting diesel engine technology to electric or hybrid-electric operation as a measure to mitigate overall airport emissions. The proposed Phase I effort willinvestigate the feasibility of replacing a conventional 72kW diesel engine generator set (genset) with a fuel cell/battery power plant in a hybri ...

  9. Advanced Electric Vehicle Research

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The national move toward electric and hybrid vehicles addresses two issues: (1) Clean Air Act requirements for areas to attain ambient air quality standards, and (2) energy conservation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and U.S. reliance on foreign oil.This move has taken longer than regulators (e.g., California Air Resources Board) would like because critical enabling technologies such as batte ...

  10. Real-Time Trajectory Generation for an Autonomous Aero Utility Vehicle with Constraints

    SBC: Aeropath            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal is focused on enhancing and applying the trajectory generationalgorithms originally developed at Caltech to a small free-flight unmannedAero Utility Vehicle (AUV) that is under development with private funding.Our trajectory generation algorithms are based on a combination of nonlinearand optimal control theory, spline theory, and sequential quadraticprogramming. Furthermore, the a ...
