  1. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  2. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

    The Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train. The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelenght high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature from these ...

  3. High-Voltage and High-Frequency Power Switch for Next Generation Transmit Receiver Module Power Supplies

    SBC: United Silicon Carbide, Inc.            Topic: MDA08029

    In response to SBIR topic MDA08-029, USCI proposes to develop a unique 4H-SiC super-junction lateral JFET (SL-JFET), based on a novel and simple design, to solve all of the remaining problems facing the development of 4H-SiC power switches for resonant high-frequency power converter in radar applications, including the problems of high output coupling capacitance of vertical SiC MOSFETs that lead ...

  4. Electric Pyrogens and Systems for Safer In-line Inititation of Rocket Motors

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA08045

    Electrically Solid Propellants (ESP) are a new class of energetic material that can be formulated as a pyrogen having several safety advantages over BKNO3. These ESP are inherently safe from accidental ignition being controllable via electrical power input. When an ESP is fitted with electrodes and a current of the required voltage is applied, it ignites and continues to energetically burn until ...

  5. Real Time Monitoring of Natural and Enhanced Space Environments

    SBC: SENSING STRATEGIES, INC            Topic: MDA08015

    The proposed effort will develop a novel radiation classifier for detecting optical and non-optical sources causing interference or potential damage to the STSS spacecraft. Two distinct sensor compnents will be used in the design. A pulse-optimized sensor with multiple coincidence channels will detect optical transient events and provide data on space weather (i.e., particle events and energy di ...

  6. Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Power Inverters and Converters for Next Generation Transmit Receive (T/R) Module Power Supplies

    SBC: VELOX SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: MDA08029

    GaN (Gallium Nitride) High Electron Mobility Transistor (HFET) devices face severe thermal control problems as a result of high power densities which result from the need for more power and the ongoing reduction in geometries of individual devices. The device lattice temperature increases under high power causing several detriment effects: a) The carrier phonon scattering rate increases causing a ...

  7. Passive Range Estimation from Angle-only Sensor Data (Acq Pointing & Tracking)

    SBC: SCITEC, INC.            Topic: MDA08050

    The utility of passive electro-optical, infrared (EO/IR) systems to contribute to closing the fire control loop to enable successful engagement of threat ballistic missiles has been anticipated for over a decade. Investments in the Airborne Laser (ABL) have begun to reap dividends as that program systematically addresses the myriad of technical challenges necessary to increase readiness of critica ...

  8. Development of Fast and Slow Cook-off Mitigation Sensor


    A self-powered cook-off sensor is a critical path item for meeting federally mandated insensitive mention (IM) requirements. The sensor must reliably help the venting system mitigate fast and slow cook off when temperatures hit the range of 275°F to 350°F. The output from the sensor must appropriately and consistently power the SRM venting system. MSI’s proposed solution is to use modules t ...

  9. Vapor Containment and Fire Suppression System for Hypergolic Propellants

    SBC: In Space, L.L.C.            Topic: MDA08046

    Hydrazine-based fuels and nitrogen tetroxide-based oxidizers have been the propellants of choice for many propulsion systems over the last several decades due to the propellant combination’s high specific impulse, storability, rapid hypergolic ignition, and moderate densities. Unfortunately, these propellants are highly toxic and pose a significant risk of fire in the event of a spill. These ...
