  1. Small Probes for Orbital Return of Experiments (SPORE)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: T101

    Analogous to the CubeSat standardization of micro-satellites, the SPORE flight system architecture will utilize a modular design approach to provide low-cost on-orbit operation and recovery of small payloads. The Phase 1 investigation will evaluate a scalable flight system architecture consisting of a service module for on-orbit operations and deorbit maneuvering, and an entry vehicle to perform ...

  2. Magnesium Hall Thruster for Solar System Exploration

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: T301

    Busek proposes to prove the feasibility of a Mg Hall effect thruster system that would open the door for In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) based solar system exploration. Elemental magnesium has favorable thermophysical properties and is very easy to ionize. The estimated specific impulse for a high efficiency magnesium Hall thruster operating off of a standard 400 V power processing unit is 5 ...

  3. Functionalized Graphitic Supports for Improved Fuel Cell Catalyst Stability

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T301

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) together with the University of Connecticut (UCONN) proposes to demonstrate the improved fuel cell catalyst support durability offered by directly incorporating nitrogen functionality into graphitic carbon supports. In Phase I, PSI will utilize the functionalized carbon support in the construction of single cell fuel cells in order to demonstrate the performance and d ...

  4. Superconducting Resonant Inductive Power Coupling

    SBC: ACTALITY, INC.            Topic: T301

    The proposed effort will develop a technology to wirelessly and efficiently transfer power over hundreds of meters via resonant inductive coupling. The key innovation of this approach is the use of dielectricless high-temperature superconducting (HTS) coils to overcome the limitations in efficiency and range of existing solutions. This approach is informed by existing research models that predic ...

  5. Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser Based 3D Imaging

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: T701

    LongWave Photonics proposes a terahertz quantum-cascade laser based swept-source optical coherence tomography (THz SS-OCT) system for single-sided, 3D, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of non-conductive materials. The THz SS-OCT system uses a frequency tunable QCL array to generate an interferometric signal between a reference mirror, and a sample. An algorithm is used to transform this signal in ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Probabilistic and Relational Inferences in Dynamic Environments (PRIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST081004

    Uncertainty on the modern battlefield makes mission planning and decision making extremely complex for field commanders. Mission planners can be aided by initial and ongoing situation assessment, future state estimation, assessment of the current plan"s probability of success, what-if analysis, and suggestions for decisions. At present, few automated tools exist to provide mission planners with th ...
