  2. Space Domain Awareness and Prediction via SpacePredict Machine Learning Platform

    SBC: Kayhan Space Corp            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    The population of visible orbital objects (active and passive) of around 29,000 is expected to grow to anywhere from 100,000 to 500,000 within 5-10 years. Given this significant increase in scale and congestion on orbit, and the competition which has been introduced between various nation-states, maintaining the chain of custody from launch, validation of intent, attribution, and resolution of ano ...

  5. Bi-Containing Compound Semiconductors for Next Generation Near-to-Mid IR Lasers and FLIR Imagers

    SBC: OSEMI INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    HgCdTe semiconductors possess exorbitant costs and manufacturing limitations when utilized in the 2.5 µm wavelength range. Small amounts of bismuth may be added to conventional III-V  semiconductors to form the III-V-Bi material system. Incorporated bismuth atoms provides an additional free  parameter in band edge design making it possible to shift the valence band independently of the conducti ...

  8. Advanced Extreme Rapid Deployment Emergency Whole Airframe Recovery Parachute System for Urban Air Mobility

    SBC: Aviation Safety Resources, Inc.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Urban/Advanced Air Mobility (UAM/AAM) technology is advancing rapidly with over 300 designs underway.  Primary to the challenges of an electric Vertical Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) is what will happen if the vehicle suffers a failure in flight (especially in VTOL).  Establishment of a level of safety is paramount in the success or failure of the UAM market. Currently, there is not a practical r ...

  10. Novel Approach to Mitigating Communication Blackout during Hypersonic Flight

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Hypersonic vehicles traveling greater than Mach 4 produce plasma sheaths around the vehicle due to the viscous flow and associated heating of the air. This plasma sheath blocks radio communication with the vehicle for RF signals below the local plasma frequency, known as communication blackout. We propose to use a combination of multiple plasma models and experiments to show that excitation of sur ...
