  1. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: AF18AT013

    Missiles experience a wide range of thermal and mechanical environments due to the large variety of flight profiles.Since the missile radome is often the aerodynamic leading edge, it undergoes significant thermal and mechanical loading. The radome must survive the dynamic pressure loading, thermal shock and environmental erosion from airborne particulates (rain / sand) while performing as an elect ...

  3. Improved Volume Hologram Optical Elements

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N162103

    As the demand for smaller, lighter, and more cost effective optical subsystems increases, many optical system designers see a growing application for advanced holographic lens technology. Having a lens whose thickness does not increase with increasing diameter or focal length is extremely beneficial for reducing size and weight in surveillance, UAV and satellite imaging applications. TIPDs Phase I ...

  5. Deployable Multi-Band Radio Base Station

    SBC: W5 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N122148

    The overall objective of this project is to provide NAWCAD with a local and enduring MUOS terminal test capability. This is achievable through W5s Mobile User Objective Orientation System (MUOOS) which is the worlds first and only MUOS satellite and ground system simulator. This project is broken down into two objectives. Objective 1 is to assemble and deliver a MUOOS to NAWCADs laboratory. The se ...

  6. HQ-55 VTOL UAS for Ship Based Operation

    SBC: Latitude Engineering, LLC            Topic: 832

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The Hybrid Quadrotor concept, developed by Latitude Engineering, combines the high power density of electric motors and propellers with the high energy density of a piston engine and liquid fuel. Together, each technology enables maximum performance in HQ's two regimes of flight: the electric system is responsible for lift while hovering (high power, short endurance), and the g ...

  7. 24/7 Monitoring of Active Satellites using Passive Radio-Frequency (RF) Sensors

    SBC: Rincon Research Corporation            Topic: AF171026

    Rincon Research Corporation (RRC) has developed a low-cost passive-RF-based system that generates high-accuracy tracking observations using the RF signals broadcast by active satellites. In Phase I, RRC demonstrated that this system can track active deep-space satellites 24x7 in all weather, that it can distinguish closely spaced objects (CSOs) by their different RF emissions, and that the resulti ...

  9. Adaptive Optics System for Meter-Class Space Surveillance Telescopes

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF171023

    The adaptive optics system we propose is designed to operate at the Coud focus of a 1-m space surveillance telescope at the Starfire Optical Range. The system is to have correction capability to D/r0 = 20 and Greenwood frequency fG = 160 Hz. The mission requirements driving the design relate to the search for closely spaced objects (CSO) around high-value assets in geosynchronous Earth orbit. The ...

  10. Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) for Moderate Data Rate Communications (MMDR)

    SBC: W5 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF171043

    The Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is designed to replace UHF SATCOM with enhanced capacity and performance, modern crypto and modern protocols. The MUOS waveform is being ported to a number of software defined radios (SDRs) that will soon be fielded and capable of utilizing the MUOS network of geosynchronous satellites and ground transport. Once these radios are in place, the process of movi ...
