  1. Precision aircraft jack to jig technology

    SBC: Ascentia Imaging, Inc.            Topic: AF191031

    Through the use of Ascentia Imagings modern Accu-Arc sensors the USAFs future measurement system for jack-to-jig operations could be dramatically simplified compared to todays systems.We propose that our system could result in:Far less set-up time and operator trainingReduced cost of operation through simple or automatic operation and continuous self-calibrationPotentially increase overall system ...

  2. High Power Radiator and Switchable Advanced Thermal Systems

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: AF191070

    Emerging small satellites are a candidate to fill the Air Forces need for more rapid and lower cost tactical space platforms.However, a gap exists in the small satellite market for optimized thermal management products.Thermal management issues plague SmallSats late in their design cycles, resulting in drastic de-rating or failure to meet performance objectives.Roccor proposes to develop an extrem ...

  3. Rapid CubeSat Development

    SBC: BLUE CANYON TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF191007

    BCT is proposing a re-configuration of its high performing CubeSat architecture, to be optimized for schedule, with the goal of a 4 month CubeSat. This CubeSat will maintain BCT's excellent star tracker-based attitude control system and other high performing subsystems such that it meets the needs of 90% of likely projects.

  5. Rapid CubeSat Development

    SBC: Orbital Mechanics Corporation            Topic: AF191007

    The topic of this SBIR is centered around the question of how long it takes to develop CubeSats, and how can this time be significantly reduced. We hypothesize that two major factors impeding CubeSat development timelines are immaturity of the supply chain, and challenges with hardware-software interaction during the integration process. We propose a solution to overcome these challenges and propo ...

  6. Fast-framing SWIR cameras for digital-holographic detection

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF191054

    For the past several years, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has been developing digital holography for various applications including imaging, tracking, and HEL weapon systems. Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc. (Guidestar) has identified a low-noise, high-speed SWIR camera which is capable of addressing the issues identified by the Air Force and enhancing the performance of digital holograp ...

  7. 6U CubeSat EO/IR Solutions for Operational Weather Demo

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF191006

    In this Phase I Air Force SBIR program, Phase Sensitive Innovations seeks deployment of a hyperspectral microwave photonic radiometer operating full band at V-Band (50-75 GHz) and/or G-Band (110-300 GHz) with 1 GHz spectral resolution on a 6U CubeSat bus in polar orbit for remote sensing applications.Our payload consumes about 2U, while 4U are available for avionics (e.g. attitude control, power, ...

  8. Stiffened Thinned Panel (STP) Array

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: AF191071

    Opterus proposes to develop a high performance deployable solar array for small spacecraft missions. The array will support the US Air Forces Space Warfighting Construct and enables resilient missions. The modular array is easily reconfigured for new cell technologies and array mission requirements (voltage, orbit, life, etc.). The array is also easily reconfigured from smaller missions with 1kW o ...

  9. Flexible Solar Arrays for Small Spacecraft Buses

    SBC: BLUE CANYON TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF191071

    An increasing number of small satellite customers (Government and commercial) are planning projects that will require increasing amounts of power (1-3 KW) on a spacecraft that will be accommodated on variety of launch platforms. These advanced solar arrays must be large enough to collect 1-3 KW, yet stow into a compact volume, fit well with other spacecraft systems, and allow for tight integration ...

  10. Microwave Weather Imager in a Cubesat form- MWIC

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: AF191006

    A conically scanning, i.e. imaging, microwave radiometer for weather imagery, cloud characterization, ocean vector surface winds, show depth, soil moisture, tropical cyclone intensity and sea ice properties observations is proposed. Microwave radiometers are uniquely suited to provide such measurements, specifically cloud water and ice content, rain and snow precipitation rate, weather imagery und ...
