  3. Reusable Extended Artificial Light Source

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF131176

    ABSTRACT: To capture images of high speed test events, the government uses high speed photography with high brightness illumination. The government would like to replace existing PF300 flashbulbs with a solution that meets or exceeds current specifications for reusable extended artificial light sources. BD & E proposes a collection of solid-state Lighting Modules based on high powered white Li ...

  5. Cost-effective Operationally Response Membrane Antenna (CORMA)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF121068

    ABSTRACT: ORS requires rapid delivery of low-cost payloads that meet the needs of unplanned and unanticipated spacecraft missions. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will provide ORS, the Air Force, and other customers with a low-cost, rapidly-fabricated deployable antenna for use in a wide range of potential RF missions. The PSI team will use a combination of commercially available manufacturing techn ...

  6. Anti-reflective Coating for High-Efficiency Solar Cells

    SBC: Raydex Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF121073

    ABSTRACT: This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project seeks to further develop an AR coating on high efficiency PV device surface that can enable a reflection loss < 3% over the wavelength range from 300 nm to 1800 nm. The proposed effort will optimize the coating design and the coating process of the broadband AR coating so that it can be integrated into PV cell products. Standard t ...

  7. SAASM Compliant GPS Receiver for GEO (SGR)


    This Mayflower SRG product addresses the limitations of current SAASM receivers that do not allow for sidelobe tracking required for GEO operations and also do not meet the size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints of the intended Air Force platforms. As such, the SRG proposal when proven successful will meet an urgent Air Force need. Mayflower is proposing to study the feasibility of leveraging ...

  8. Characterizing Resident Space Objects from Photometric Signatures (CROPS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF141123

    The US is highly dependent on space resources for communications and imaging, as well as positioning, navigation, and timing services that support military operations, government operations, and commercial interests. Because the space environment is both congested and contested, effectively operating space resources is a challenge. The Joint Space Operations Center requires high-quality space situ ...

  9. Agile Active/Passive SWIR HSI

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF141178

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) in collaboration with Q-Peak, a PSI subsidiary, will develop an agile, active/passive shortwave infrared (SWIR) hyperspectral imager (HSI) for tower mounted or airborne information surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). This solution employs a high-power supercontinuum (SC) laser source to extend the operating range of the HSI to low-light conditions and nighttime use. ...

  10. Robust Hyperspectral Targeting and Reacquisition Software

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF141183

    Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sensors have the unique ability to identify objects based on the spectral signatures of their surface materials. With these signatures, movements of designated targets could be detected using images collected hours to days apart. Many targets of interest, such as vehicles, have specular (non-Lambertian) surfaces with multiple materials and surface angles. This compl ...
