  1. Small Probe Reentry System

    SBC: Global Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T101

    Global Aerospace Corporation (GAC), and its research partner, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (CPSLO), will develop an integrated Small Probe Reentry System (SPRS) for low Earth orbit (LEO) small satellite Earth reentry missions. The SPRS delivers the small probe to a targeted reentry, protects it from the harsh atmospheric reentry environment, slows it down so that it can land without damage to its payl ...

  3. Agent Architecture for Continuous Systems

    SBC: KESTREL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: T102

    We propose to develop an Action Languages which allows for the representation of time and time dependent processes and which allows for the valid composition of modules. Furthermore, we will develop a provably correct translation from the Action Language into Logic Programs under the Answer Set Semantics. Action Languages have already proven useful for the representation of intelligent agent tha ...

  4. A Refined Model for the Behavior of Nitrous Oxide to Assess the Limits of N2O Cooling

    SBC: ROLLING HILLS RESEARCH CORP            Topic: T201

    The proposed project is crucial to enabling safe flight research on a rocket nozzle that is based on our recent innovation, which is to use the refrigerant capabilities of nitrous oxide (N2O) to provide cooling for an aerospike nozzle on hybrid rocket motor using N2O as the oxidizer. The phase change cooling as liquid N2O is flashed from a liquid into a vapor, limits to acceptable levels the erosi ...

  8. A Waveguide Based, High Power Pockels Cell Modulator for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Slicing

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    The Goal of this STTR is to develop a high speed, high power, waveguide based modulator (phase and amplitude) and investigate its use as a pulse slicer. The key innovation in this effort is the use of potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) waveguides making the high power, polarization based waveguide amplitude modulator possible. Furthermore because it is fabricated in KTP, the waveguide component w ...
