  2. Rapid Response Small Launcher Technology

    SBC: X-Bow Launch Systems Inc.            Topic: SB173006

    To meet DARPA’s specified needs, X-Bow (pronounced “Crossbow”) will infuse advanced manufacturing (AM) methods to produce its small launch vehicle. The vehicle will be capable of rapid and affordable on-demand launch of small payloads. There are ample commercially available opportunities to infuse automated and AM techniques into tanks, nozzles, and other mechanical components. However, ther ...

  3. High Performance Micro Rocket Stages for Tactical & Space Applications

    SBC: Astra Space, Inc.            Topic: SB091013

    Given the increasing desire to put small payloads into orbit for rapid, responsive and low-cost access to space, as well as for small tactical stages with increased capabilities, Ventions proposes the design, fabrication, integration and launch of a 4-inch diameter, 5-foot tall flight-vehicle as a demonstration towards advanced miniature launch vehicles and tactical stages. The work proposed herei ...

  4. High Bandwidth Redundant Communication Links for Small Satellites

    SBC: Innoflight, Inc.            Topic: A16079

    Innoflight will develop a high performance software-defined compact radio (SCR) with Ka and X dual band downlink capability and S Band uplink capability. The Ka / X SCR will support 300 Mbps downlink and 5 Mbps uplinks rates using advanced spectrally efficient waveforms. It will offer interoperability with standard government and commercial ground stations such as the Army RGT (Remote Ground Termi ...

  5. Capturing Insights from Firefights to Improve Training

    SBC: HF Designworks, Inc            Topic: SB082036

    Despite continuous improvements in military tactics and technology, casualties still remain. Phase I examined the idea of the “first five firefights” to identify if Soldiers have an increased likelihood of becoming a casualty during the initial days of their tour. Research consisted of gathering and compiling Soldier fatality data, conducting interviews (individual and group) with Soldiers and ...

  6. A High Stability, Monolithic, Spiral Reference Cavity & Integrated Source for Application to Ultra-stable Microwave Generation

    SBC: HQPHOTONICS INC.            Topic: SB121001

    In Phase I a novel spiral resonator was demonstrated that is both chip based and has high immunity to thermal noise. The system uses a silica-on-silicon platform and is therefore compatible with a wide range of photonic and electrical components. In Phase I, the optical coupling to the resonator utilized a fiber taper. In Phase II, a program is proposed to further increase the robustness of the re ...

  7. Integrated Ultra-high Performance Oscillator based on a Crystalline Kerr Comb

    SBC: OEWAVES, INC.            Topic: SB121001

    In this Phase II DARPA SBIR effort, OEwaves Inc., along with UC Davis, will investigate, design, build, test, characterize and deliver for independent Government testing a miniature oscillator based on an optical Kerr frequency comb [1-8] produced with an ultra-high Q crystalline microresonator [9], for targeted use in electronic warfare receivers and transmitters. The projected performance of the ...

  8. Continuous Detonation Rocket and Air Breathing Engines

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: SB082059

    In the proposed second phase of this project, HyPerComp will team with Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne (PWR), the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) and Purdue University in the systematic design, fabrication and testing of a continuous detonation rocket engine (CDRE). During phase-I we studied the operation of the CDRE under ideal conditions, and developed an improved understanding of the non-idea ...

  9. Portable Microwave Cold Atomic Clock

    SBC: Spectra Dynamics Inc            Topic: SB141004

    We present the design of a small, portable, microwave cold atomic clock that meets the frequency stability requirement of < 8X10-13 at 1 s averaging time and < 3X10-15 for an averaging time of 1 day. The entire clock is about the size of a desktop computer 18.75 ” X 14.75 ” X 8.77 ” (47.6 cm X 37.5 cm X 22.3 cm) and weighs 30.5 kg. The clock can run on both 100-240 VAC as well as +24 VDC. St ...

  10. Load Bearing Thermal Protection Structure for Hypersonic Flight

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: SB171013

    NextGen Aeronautics is proposing to develop and demonstrate a lightweight, low cost, load bearing, thermally protective and high temperature survivable structure for hypersonic flight. Our technical approach is based on advancing the work performed under legacy programs and Phase I to a higher maturity level. Creating a single structural element with inherent insulating properties provides signifi ...
