  3. Feasibility Test of Rotating Detonation Rocket Engine Using Storable Hypergolic Bipropellants

    SBC: GHKN Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF182063

    Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines (RDRE) support continuous detonation (constant volume) combustion in an annulus rather than in the deflagration combustion chambers of conventional rockets. Supersonic detonation waves travel circumferentially in the detonation zone of the annulus at some fraction of the theoretical maximum Chapman-Jouguet velocity. RDREs are mechanically simple devices, virtuall ...

  4. Dactylus

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF182080

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop Dactylus, a spacecraft fixture and accompanying soft capture end-effector for TUIs KRAKEN robotic arm for on-orbit servicing (OOS) of small spacecraft. Dactylus will enable capture and berthing in future space systems by providing a standard unobtrusive (compact, low-profile, 1U footprint) fixture to be included on spacecraft in the 10-50kg range. ...

  5. KRAKEN-X Lightweight Space-Qualified Robotic Arm

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF182082

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop KRAKEN-X, a compact 7 degree of freedom (DOF) modularly configurable robotic manipulator as a payload for on-orbit servicing (OOS) missions. KRAKEN-X will be a space-qualified version of TUIs KRAKEN robotic manipulator, which is based on compact 2DOF series elastic actuator (SEA) modules and is currently being matured for use inside the Internation ...

  7. Coupled Infusion-Cure Modeling Simulation for Low-Cost Composite Parts for Process Defects and Geometric Conformity

    SBC: Convergent Manufacturing Technologies US Inc.            Topic: AF182100

    With the increasing use of infusion methods for composite manufacturing, the need to improve part geometric and defect quality while reducing cycle times, cost, and risk is paramount. The use of simulation tools has become a key component in reducing the need for inefficient trial and error experimentation. Historically, flow simulations have been decoupled from cure and residual stress/deformatio ...

  8. Unmanned Hoist Rescue Stability Solution for Helicopter SAR Operations

    SBC: Vita Inclinata Technologies LLC            Topic: AF183001

    Vita Inclinata Technologies proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an autonomous, unmanned suspended load stability system for integration into all rotary wing Search and Rescue (SAR) & sling load operations. Helicopter SAR missions are often subject to adverse conditions attributed to environmental elements, flight dynamic side effects, degraded communications, and enemy threats. These advers ...

  9. Autonomous UAS Network with AI Driven Wearable Device Control

    SBC: Robodub Inc            Topic: AF183001

    We propose to build an autonomous multi-UAV/UGV network that can be controlled entirely from broad, customizable operational commands from wearable devices. The UAS requires no direct control inputs (directions, throttle, etc), and does not necessarily require direct commands from an operator to any single vehicle. We will develop a command based human-UAS interfacing protocol that can be used wit ...

  10. Surviving a loss-of-lubricant event with advanced nanotechnology gearoil for helicopters

    SBC: Tribotex LLC            Topic: AF183005

    TriboTEX is proposing a feasibility study of Helicopter Gearbox Loss-of-Lubricant performance enhancement with proprietary anisotropic nanoparticles produced in-house at commercial scale. TriboTEX nanoparticles are flat with two functionally different sides (sticky/slippery) providing smart lubricous coating generated in-situ with friction. Founders' nanotechnology research was funded by NSF SBIR ...
