  2. STAP for an Electronically Scanned Circular Array


    The objective of this SBIR project is to produce a single chip GPS receiver using an advanced silicon on sapphire (SOS) technology known as Ultra Thin Silicon (UTSi) CMOS. The chip will be suitable for both commercial and military applications and resultin significant cost (12%), size (up to 70%) and power consumption (up to 50%) reduction compared to current technologies. As a result of discussi ...

  4. Repair of Ceramic Matrix Composite Structures

    SBC: MSNW, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase II research will build on a recent breakthrough development by MSNW, Inc. of a reinforced adhesive chemically compatible with oxide/oxide CMCs and demonstrating through thickness tensile strengths greater than 1 ksi. The Phase I projectdemonstrated the potential of this adhesive as the basis for a tailorable repair material. In the proposed Phase II research, two state-of-the- ...

  5. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...

  6. Composite Flywheel Structure


    Composite flywheel rotors can achieve high performance with new design and manufacturing methods. This is done through novel hybridization of all hoop wound rotors and one stage cure without wrinkles. The rotors will be inspected before static, fatigueand spin tests. The predicted burst speed will be compared with spin test data. A flywheel system will be evaluated using our high performance r ...

  9. High Speed Digital Bus Isolator for Space


    NVE will produce and package IC's that monolithically integrate high speed GMR signal isolators into prototype high-speed 74245 type transceivers and 74573 type logic latches. Commercial high-speed data bus interfaces between microcontroller basedsubsystems have not been galvanically isolated due to performance, size and cost constraints. These interfaces would benefit from the inclusion of mono ...

  10. Real Time Signature-Based Target Detection for Future Hyperspectral Imaging Sensors

    SBC: Space Computer Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Under the proposed program we will develop a real-time processing system for hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sensors. Up to the present time the false-alarm rates for HSI sensors have been from one to three orders of magnitude too high for practical automatedwide-area HSI surveillance. The proposed work will take advantage of spectral signature information to discriminate high-value targets from natur ...
