  1. A Novel Automated and Controlled Dual Laser Ablation System for Selective Removal of Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF093120

    Thermal barrier coatings have been widely used to provide thermal protection to superalloy components in gas turbine engines. After certain amount of service time, the coating experiences a reduction in thickness by processes such as wear, erosion and foreign/domestic object damage. When the thickness decreases below a critical value, the thermal barrier effect provided by the coating is no longer ...

  2. A Novel Nanomaterial-enabled Hybrid Power System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP2

    Developments in micro/nano technologies are leading the way to a new fleet of micro air vehicle (MAV) airframes. However, the unavoidable and ultimately the mission-limiting issue for all of these new systems will be on-board power. The lightest-weight current lithium-polymer batteries don’t provide sufficient energy densities and impose a variety of operational limitations that are unacceptab ...

  3. Advanced Electronic Cooling Technologies

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: AF083222

    Aqwest proposes to develop an advanced thermal management for cooling of electronic components using an active heat sink (AHS) offering unparalleled capabilities in high-heat flux handling and temperature control. The project will produce a cooling system with the following benefits to wide band gap amplifiers and high-power laser diodes (HPLD): 1) Heat flux handling > 1200 W/cm2 2) Easily scalabl ...

  4. Advanced Estimation and Data Fusion Strategies for Space Surveillance/Reconnaissance

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF093012

    Space surveillance or reconnaissance is that component of space situational awareness focused on the detection of resident space objects (RSOs) and the use of multisource data including available radar and electro-optical data to track and identify space objects. Our proposed program aims to develop modern and robust approaches to tracking RSOs through the use of advanced nonlinear estimation (fi ...

  6. Automated Adversarial Course of Action Model Generation and Reasoning for Satellite Protection (commercial/military)

    SBC: Distributed Infinity Inc            Topic: AF093046

    The United States has expended tremendous amounts of time and effort in maintaining the capability of our most critical space assets with a high degree of fidelity despite a wide range of possible occurrences. For the most part, however, the current threat model is largely natural. It has become increasingly important to improve our asset protection methodologies against malicious, intentional a ...

  7. Automated Tools for Adversarial Threat Characterization

    SBC: Intelligent Software Solutions            Topic: AF093047

    The space community has, over the course of the past several years, performed research into Space Situation Awareness (SSA). As SSA and reasoning technologies advance, SSA has become a central factor in identifying and responding to space threats. The ISS Team proposes to advance SSA capabilities through the development of predictive SSA technologies. The objective of the proposed Space Situati ...

  8. Autonomous Space Systems

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF093087

    On-orbit assets are essential for current and future mission success; however there are numerous types of attack that threaten their safety. To protect these assets and ensure their continued operation, these threats must be detected as quickly as possible so that appropriate responses can be taken. The objective of the proposed work is to develop a prototype event detection system that demonstr ...

  9. Catalytic N2O Decomposition for Piloted Scramjet Ignition

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF083121

    High speed air breathing engines can deliver payloads with vehicles that are smaller and lighter than rocket powered vehicles. Unfortunately, ignition and flame holding in scramjet engines has proven to be difficult, particularly with cold hardware and low-volatility fuels such as JP-7. Although methods to improve ignition and flame holding have been evaluated, improvements are still needed. A ...

  10. CubeSat Advanced Power and De-orbit Module

    SBC: M.M.A. Design LLC            Topic: AF093088

    MMA Design proposes to develop a low cost, multifunctional Advanced Power and De-orbit System (APDM) for a 3U CubeSat. Current CubeSats have limited power generating capabilities, often with an Average Orbital Power (AOP) of 5 watts. State of the art CubeSat solar arrays presently produce 21 watts peak power. For 3U CubeSats to provide operational utility in support of the AFRL missions, more powe ...
