  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. 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 ...

  3. Short Pulse Transmitter for Focal Plane Array Base Imaging Ladar

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

    3-D imaging ladar offers new capabilities to military/commercial markets. However, imaging transceivers often utilize push-broom/whiskbroom image acquisition with costly, complex mechanical scanners and potential image distortion due to target/sensormotion. Architectures with single-shot 3-D imaging focal plane arrays (FPAs) address these challenges but require higher pulse energy lasers to keep ...

  4. Combined FLIR- Coherent Ladar Focalplane Development

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

    Modern conflict areas are a complex mix of urban and natural clutter, adverse weather and a high density of friendly forces, foes, and non-combatants. Owing to the increasing complexity of conflict areas, long standoff detection, non-cooperativeidentification (NCTID), and targeting of both air and ground targets has increased in importance. At the same time, surveillance (UAVs) and strike platfo ...

  7. Next Generation Composite Chassis (NGCC)

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force is developing the next generation of small satellites that will fly in close formation and weigh no more than 100 kilograms. The spacecraft are dramatically smaller than conventional vehicles and are designed to test new radiation-protectedmicroelectronics and demonstrate programmed, autonomous decision-making capabilities. In order to enable the use of next generation microelectro ...

  8. Miniaturized Vibration Isolation System (MVIS)

    SBC: Left Hand Design Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Existing active isolation systems are complex, large, expensive, and provide only modest performance improvements relative to less-expensive passive isolation systems.Therefore active isolation systems have only been used in programs that have problemssevere enough to warrant these costs. When they are used, available isolation systems provide less than 10 dB performance improvements relative to ...

  10. GPS-Based User Equipment for all Altitude Tracking

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: N/A

    Studies and test data previously collected have shown that GPS tracking can be used for space vehicles at high altitudes, including up to geo-synchronous (GEO) satellite orbits. GPS tracking could significantly simplify implementation of autonomousGuidance, Navigation, and Control (GN&C) in upper stages and satellites. Even without full autonomy, GPS tracking has the potential of shortening the ...
