  1. Distributed Coherent Communications

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: SB162008

    Vadum will develop and simulate a new communications protocol for Distributed Coherent Beamforming (DCB) that will implement bi-directional distributed TX and RX beamforming algorithms between two or more groups of wireless nodes with no prior spatial awareness (i.e. GPS not required). The Vadum approach uses an innovative Master-Slave architecture to implicitly achieve frequency and timing synchr ...

  3. High Performance, Semi-Solid Monopropellant for Advanced Low Cost Expendable Launch Vehicles

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SB152008

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to demonstrate and quantify a novel, safe, high density impulse, green storable liquid propellant in a rocket engine. This new propellant formulation can be treated as a monopropellant or as a bipropellant system with predicted specific impulse and density specific impulses exceeding NTO/MMH performance. The liquid propellant will allow for low-cost operability of h ...

  7. SA3: Small Autonomous, Sensor Agnostic, Sense and Avoid

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB151006

    Currently small unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) are limited in their ability to autonomously fly in complex, cluttered, environments.This significantly limits the utility of small tactical UAVs to the warfighter/squad who must manually control the vehicle.Small UAVs require: a) scalable autonomous survival behaviors to avoid collision with environmental structure and moving objects; b) Low size, weig ...

  10. ACA: Active Collaborative Autonomy

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB111004

    Anti-access Area Denial (A2AD) capabilities from peer threats render many aspects of current CONOPS inadequate.For example, our manned aircraft are projected to experience unacceptable attrition against peer IADS forces.The overall system concept of collaborative teams of smaller UAVs and manned-unmanned teams shows great promise for counteracting the A2AD threats and improving the cost-exchange r ...
