  1. Thermal Control for Resilient Spacecraft

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: AF103107

    The overall goal of this effort is to support high-power SmallSats by maturing resilient thermal control technologies. Technologies include both Advanced Thermal Model (ATM) software and Resilient Thermal Control (RTC) hardware. The ATM software utilizes a reduced-order modeling (ROM) approach to greatly reduce thermal modeling overhead. New features will be added to the ATM software to enhance it ...

  2. Sensor Open System Architecture (SOSA) Architectural Research

    SBC: IDEAS ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF171062

    This SBIR Phase 2 project will continue the development of a Radiation Tolerant, VITA74-compliant platform for C4ISR applications for small spacecraft. The small spacecraft industry has been successful in using Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components to enable low-cost high-performance space missions. The drawback of this approach is that it sacrifices the reliability of the spacecraft, limitin ...

  8. Implementation and Demonstration of LUCS, a Live, Ultra-Compact Multispectral USPL Characterization System

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: N171085

    Researchers developing Ultra-Short-Pulse-Lasers (USPLs) need real-time measurements of key parameters, on both single-shot and statistical basis. Based on the Phase I results, we propose to assemble and demonstrate a fully integrated, intuitive and user friendly, Live USPL Characterization System, termed LUCS, using novel methods of data capture, data reduction, and distributed processing. Phase I ...
