  1. Xenon Production by Iodine Transmutation

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic thrusters are the likely choice for station keeping of the new generation of small communication satellites. Xenon is the fuel of choice for these thrusters because of its high mass and low ionization potential. Existing worldwide xenon production will not permit fueling of more than a small fraction of the projected satellite population unless significant price increase of Xe is rea ...

  2. X-Band and Ka Band Low Noise Block Downconverter

    SBC: Custom Mmic Design Services, Inc.            Topic: AF103178

    Custom MMIC Design Services has significant experience in the design, characterization and destruction testing of MMW LNAs. We have successfully designed X-band LNAs on GaAs with sub 1dB noise figures. These designs have been shown to survive up to 1W of RF power with no input protection. CMDS has also designed diode based limiter circuits to extend that protection to 6W. Our innovative design tec ...

  3. X-Band and Ka Band Low Noise Block Downconverter

    SBC: Auriga Measurement Systems LLC            Topic: AF103178

    Phase I tasks will determine the integration plan for the block downconverters used in satellite communication systems. The anticipated advantage of using GaN HFETs for limiter/LNA combination will be quantified. The concept will be verified by device characterization, modeling and a prototype amplifier demonstration. MMIC amplifiers will be designed for the final goals, to be completed and fabric ...

  4. Workflow Management and Prioritization for Allocator and Assessor Processing

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The current problem of handling thousands of workflows and hundreds of tasks associated with these workflows within the current ALP architecture is enormous. In this effort we propose efficient and scalable data structure and algorithms that can order the workflows and associated tasks to be processed by the Assessor. In addition, we provide the capability to correlate workflows with actual logi ...

  5. Wireless, Time-synchronized, Event Control System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: AF103236

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a wide-area, wireless, time-synchronized event controller system (WTECS). The proposed solution will provide a reliable, low cost, non-intrusive system that can record sensor data, control events, and display data in real time by employing a distributed network of wireless event controllers. BENEFIT: There i ...

  6. Wireless Sensor Network powered by Energy Harvesting Solution Network

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: AF103201

    ABSTRACT: Turbine engine performance, efficiency, and reliability can be greatly improved if additional and evolving instrumentation can be added for input to the FADEC and PHM systems. As this additional instrumentation becomes a larger percentage of the engine"s total life cycle cost; the need to reduce maintenance and installation overhead for new instrumentation becomes increasingly importan ...

  7. WinChem: A Tool for Evaluation of High-Temperature Structural Material Stability in Extreme Environments

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: N/A

    CompuTherm, LLC proposes to develop WinChem, an innovative and user-friendly computer program integrated with a thermodynamic database, to provide a significant new capability to rapidly determine chemical equilibrium necessary to evaluate the stability of high-temperature structural materials under corrosive (generally oxidative) conditions. The lack of this capability has been an obstacle to th ...

  8. Widely-Tunable Distributed-feedback Mid-Infrared Laser for Standoff Chemical Detection

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: A10075

    Important applications such as chemical sensing call for compact, broadband, high brightness lasers in the critical 3 -5 micron region of the mid-infrared spectrum. We propose to first design (Phase I) and then to produce (Phase II) a high power, broadband QCL source that can be rapidly tuned over>100 nm and is inherently rugged in its design. To accomplish this, we will integrate our patent-pendi ...

  9. Wide FOV and Fast Active Optical Detection System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09013

    In this SBIR program, we propose to develop a wide angle and fast optical detection system for measuring the slung load cable angle and angular rate in real time, which is necessary to stabilize the external loads in heavy-lift vertical resupply operations by fleet helicopters or unmanned helicopters. This development efforts leverage Agiltrons extensive experiences in developing the variety of im ...

  10. Wide Band, High Performance Low Cost Array Antenna (1000-185)

    SBC: SI2 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N111040

    SI2 Technologies proposes to leverage its experience in the design of broadband, low profile array antennas to develop a wide band, high performance, low cost array to operate from S band through X band for Navy shipboard radar, electronic warfare (EW), and communications systems. SI2"s proposed array is based on proven technology, and will exhibit high efficiency, excellent pattern stability and ...
