  1. A Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Defensive Space Applications

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF07T036

    In this program, Busek Co. Inc and Stanford University will develop and demonstrate a multi-mode high power plasma gun that can be used for both space propulsion and as a counter-measure against space debris or potentially hostile spacecraft. Investigations of this Coaxial High Energy (CHENG) thruster in the 1980's showed that it can damage a target. Because it is efficient over a wide range of ...

  4. Atomic layer deposition of atomic oxygen and UV resistant coatings for spacecraft

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF07T011

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Harvard University propose to develop atomic oxygen and UV/VUV-resistant conductive coatings for spacecraft in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). We will use Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) to deposit thin conformal pinhole-free films of conductive oxides on Kapton coupons. We will evaluate the performance of the coatings with PSI's FAST^TM atomic oxygen source. We will demon ...

  6. CIFTS:Communications and Information Flow Tracking System

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF06T027

    In organizations such as the Air and Space Operations Center (AOC), team members collaboratively process information about time sensitive targets for prosecution in time constrained situations. To assure the highest degree of performance, operators undergo periodic training. Training effectiveness is maximized by providing performance measurement and feedback to operators, so they can learn from t ...

  9. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF05T010

    A core component of aerospace manufacturing is based on cutting-edge materials used in extreme environments. Chemical kinetics models are vital for interpreting experimental measurements and predicting the behavior of these complex systems. For many applications, the reaction rates for all required chemical processes are unknown. We propose a versatile user-friendly computational package for ca ...

  10. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...
