  3. A 100 W, V-Band Elliptical Beam Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: BRIDGE 12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF141193

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a 100 W TWT for operation in the 71-76 GHz band. The design will be compatible with space qualification for operation in a geostationary earth orbit (GEO) satellite platform. The performance of the TWT will be optimized to support 12/4 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) with 30 dB suppression and no more than 3 dB backoff. We propose to use a rectangular circuit ...

  4. A Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Defensive Space Applications

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF07T036

    Busek Co. Inc. and Stanford University propose to develop and test an advanced high power plasma propulsion concept referred to here as a Coaxial High EnerGy Thruster, or CHENG thruster.  The thruster is first and foremost a propulsive device.  However, because the device is pulsed, compact, and efficient the plasma beam is highly condensed and energetic. For this reason, the thruster may also b ...

  6. A Functional Estimation Testbed for Robust Vision-Aided Navigation

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF01156

    Many defense platforms depend on GPS for precise navigation and targeting. Due to proliferation of inexpensive GPS jamming devices and emergence of anti-satellite capabilities, there is increased demand for sensor fusion algorithms which provide GPS-quality localization and are robust to GPS jamming, cutouts, and hardware failure. Our Phase I effort analyzed GPS/INS coupling architectures, and det ...

  8. A Microwave Spectral Emission Model for Rocket Plumes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF083256

    Early detection of threat missile launches is key for missile defense strategy.  However, detecting surface launches using space-based sensors under all illumination (day/night) and weather (clear/cloudy) conditions is extremely challenging.  While rarely considered for this problem, the microwave region (~3-300 GHz, ~1-100 cm-1, ~10(+4)-10(+2) micron) offers excellent cloud penetration and is n ...

  9. A Monolithically Integrated Large-format (640x512) Multi-spectral Polarimetric Quantum Dot (QD) Focal Plane Array (FPA)


    Polarization sensitive multi-spectral photodetectors and focal plane arrays (FPA) are of great importance in numerous air force applications. Current existing multi-spectral sensing systems employ dispersive optics (gratings or prisms), or external polarizer technologies to obtain spectral and polarimetric information. These systems are heavy, bulky, and unable to detect all polarization component ...
