  1. Low-Cost/Robust Nanosatellite Spacecraft for Distributed, Communication Systems Constellations

    SBC: ADVANCED SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Both DOD and NASA have future missions that require the launch and deployment of an increasing number of single spacecraft, as well as multi-craft constellations. The desire to minimize cost and ensure the robustness of these high value assets has givenrise to the need for on-orbit inter-satellite communications that provides redundancy and fault tolerant satellite-to-satellite communications. T ...

  2. Ad Hoc Routing for Nanosatellite Constellation Communications

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This proposal suggests an approach to providing self-organizing network communications between the nodes comprising a nanosatellite constellation. Using the proposing firm's existing body of work on self-organizing ad hoc networks for 802.11 wireless LANsand miniaturized robotics platforms as a baseline, issues relating to ad hoc networking in a nanosatellite constellations will be identified, a ...

  3. Common Data Access Models and Services Using Datalets

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force needs to access a large variety of databases with varying data schemas and storage architectures from an equally large variety of applications. This presents a rewarding but challenging problem of enabling access to these databases via commondata access models and services. This problem, and also its most challenging implementation aspect, is particularly significant in the context o ...

  4. Silicon Carbide Power Transistors for High Power Transmitter

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Astralux, in collaboration with the University of Colorado, proposes to develop high-power SiC microwave bipolar transistors for use in pulsed RF transmitters. More specifically, the performance goal is a 4H-SiC bipolar junction transistor (BJT) withpulsed power up to 650 W, single stage power gain up to 12 dB and bandwidth up to 3 GHz. The advantages of bipolar devices over Si-based devices inclu ...

  5. Development of Liquid Crystal Materials for Directed Energy Control

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Boulder Nonlinear Systems has been developing liquid-crystal based tunable filters for a decade. The success of these devices ultimately rests in the capabilities of the liquid crystal material. Phase II research will concentrate on the development ofhigh-speed, analog switching ferroelectric liquid crystal materials and their application in agile tunable notch filters. Toward this end, BNS wil ...

  8. Tunable, Narrow Linewidth Laser for HF/DF Laser Metrology

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

    Development of advanced Hydrogen Fluoride/Deuterium Fluoride (HF/DF) laser technology can be hampered by delayed knowledge of laser component performance. HF mirror optical performance metrology is currently costly and time consuming, requiring lasercomponent delivery to an HF laser site, and operation of another HF laser to reach relevant wavelengths. Coherent Technologies, Inc (CTI) proposes a ...

  9. High-efficiency, frequency-agile MWIR-LWIR laser source for DIAL

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

    The proliferation of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons among rogue nations and terrorist organizations necessitates that the US develop the means of detecting the development of these weapons before they can be deployed against US and alliedmilitary assets and civilian targets. The US government has demonstrated that Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) is one means of stand-off, covert, r ...

  10. Compact Monolithic Waveguide LADAR Munitions Seeker

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

    The goal for the next-generation laser transmitter for high-energy single-pulse LADAR seekers is to reduce size, cost, weight, and complexity, while increasing robustness and operational lifetime. Current laser transmitters (1) contain numerous free-spaceoptical components that limits the robustness and (2) are limited by thermal problems such as heat removal and temperature control. Coherent Tec ...
