  1. Agents and Avatars in the Aerospace Operations Center in Support of Combat Operations

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For efficient space operations, and for effective space force enhancement to terrestrial forces, Aerospace Operations Center (AOC) personnel must be continuously aware of the status of on-orbit assets, payload coverage, reacting to system degradations andfailures, and responding to intolerant environments for satellites. To complete the situational awareness picture, there is also the need to depi ...

  2. SWAP/VAWCS, A Voice Authenticated Wireless Communication System that Uses an Innovative Adaptive communications Protocol

    SBC: BLACK & RYAN ENGINEERING            Topic: N/A

    With the advent of satellite telephone services, it is now feasible to provide secure voice communication to any location on Earth. In a Phase I SBIR for AFRL, Black & Ryan Engineering (BRE) developed VAWCS (Voice Authenticated Wireless CommunicationSystem), a computer model of a Communications Waveform, combining Voice Authentication, Speech Compression, Encryption, and Forward Error Correction ...

  3. Development of Light-Weight, Low-Cost Multichannels Catalytic Membrane Reformer

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The ability to reform battlefield fuels to highly enriched hydrogen gas would facilitate the use of fuel cells as an efficient electric generators for deployed forces. This SBIR Phase II program is focused on the optimization of highly efficient andcompact minireformers for this application. The steam reforming process, which allows higher yield of hydrogen in comparison to partial oxidation rea ...

  4. Novel Field Programmable Technology based on Latching Micro-Electromagnetic Switches

    SBC: MICROLAB            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a new type of field-programmable logic device consisting of a custom ASIC chip and monolithically post-processed MEMS switches integrated with on-chip permanent magnets. The enabling components of this integrated microsystem are thenew MEMS switches demonstrated in Phase I with drastically reduced feature sizes. The main components of the Phase II work consist of optimizing ...

  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. Fatigue Life of Composite Structures in Extreme Environments

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The phase II objective is to develop a general design/analysis methodology as a design tool to predict the dynamic responses and fatigue life of composite structures in high thermal gradient and under high acoustic loading for new generation hypersonicflight vehicles and propulsion system integration. This task is particularly challenging as the structural response exhibits both randomness and st ...

  7. Nonlinear Reduced Order Modeling of Limit Cycle Oscillations of Aircraft Wiings

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The Zona technology/Duke University team process a challenging set of tasks to be accomplished in two years time that builds upon the very substantial progress already made in Phase I. Specifically, the 2D, Euler Euations CFD model (developed in Phase I)that uses a harmonic balance solution technique will be extended to include teh effects of viscosity (Navier-Stoke equations)and multiple structu ...
