  1. Mothercube for Cubesat-based Synthetic Aperture Radio Telescope

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB092016

    The miniaturization of satellite technology enables us to do more with less, but it also pressures us to find clever solutions to fundamental problems. We have identified several space missions amenable to fractionated architectures, in which instrumentation and other capabilities are distributed throughout a heterogeneous cluster of satellites. Fractionation techniques promise to lower the cost ...

  2. A Practical Model Based Engineering Capability for Integrating Architecture Design, Analysis, and Verification of Large Scale Complex Systems

    SBC: PHOENIX INTEGRATION INC            Topic: SB102005

    In the defense industry today, high level SysML system models are used by engineers beginning early in the design process to functionally decompose the system being designed and to flow down requirements to sub-systems and components. Despite their usefulness, these system models are by and large descriptive models and not analytical (executable) models. In contrast, domain level engineers (struct ...

  3. Development of Low Dark Current Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) Devices for Next Generation Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03T002

    Next generation EO/IR sensors are needed for a variety of Military Systems Applications. These include UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II STTR Program plans to design, model and develop Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) based detector array for next generation multicolor IR imaging applications. The key components of the Program will include eva ...

  4. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  5. Design and Development of High Performance UV Imaging Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB093011

    Magnolia proposes to develop and demonstrate small unit cell APD array with high gain for high resolution imaging in the ultraviolet (UV) band. We will use MOCVD process to demonstrate GaN/AlGaN based APD arrays on lattice matched substrates with very low dark current and high avalanche gain. Models will be developed to understand characteristics of small pixel size UV detectors and mechanisms for ...

  6. Digital Eddy Current Tomography for Submarine Pressure Hull Inspection Through the Coating

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: SB091011

    A capability to inspect submarine pressure hulls through the special hull treatment could result in significant savings in maintenance costs and improvements in fleet readiness. This poses a challenge for conventional nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods, as acoustic methods are defeated by the coating and others require access to the surface. This proposal focuses on evolving MWM-MR-Array (M ...

  7. Automated Collaboration Collection&Relationship Understanding Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB093007

    Operations centers for tactical military activities, incident response, and other domains all involve multiple teams of individuals interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable continuous mission success. In these organizations, effective coordination and collaboration is critical. To improve collaboration, an end-to-end sensor and analysis technology is n ...

  8. Hydrogen Based High Velocity Insensitive Launch Systems

    SBC: UTRON, Inc.            Topic: SB112002

    The objective of this proposal is to further explore and refine the use of hydrogen based propellants for use in high velocity gun systems. This proposal will build on the ongoing and very novel research being conducted with direct combustion of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures at high initial pressures. While the research performed to date has demonstrated the performance potential inherent in this app ...

  9. Automated Target Assessment Development Environment

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Automated processing of sensor/signal data and other non-sensor information provides substantial force-multiplying benefits. The timely and cost-effective leveraging of these types of information provides a significant advantage over adversaries not possessing comparable information processing capabilities. The intelligent processing of diverse types of data provides a target assessment technology ...

  10. Smart, Compact Packages for Vibration Control

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, ACX proposes to develop compact, low cost, integrated smart packs for vibration reduction. Each package would include actuators and sensors, drive and signal conditioning electronics as well as simple controllers to yield a self standing solution to vibration problems. The electronics module would be low cost and compact. The pack would run off of standard available power supplies and w ...
