  2. Highly Sensitive Flash LADAR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T9

    To address the urgent need for 3D flash-lidar technology for landing on solar system bodies and for spacecraft rendezvous and docking with satellites, an effort is proposed to fabricate, characterize, and test a versatile, high-sensitivity InGaAs APD 3D flash lidar and to advance the technology-readiness level (TRL) of lidar technologies suitable for NASA mission requirements. Leveraging an existi ...

  3. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The problem addressed in this effort is to automatically learn historical ephemeris space catalog time, position, and velocity entity track update error uncertainties (i.e., without track error covariances) and to automatically (e.g., without expert event labeling) produce: – unmodeled non-gravitational space catalog update flags – abnormal unmodeled catalog update flags with abnorma ...

  4. Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor Phase 2

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Through the execution of our Phase 1 effort, Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University developed an improved means to optimize the Pellizzarri cost functional for coherent imaging using digital holography. Our algorithm developed during the Phase 1 effort accelerates convergence times by a factor of 20-40 for the majority of scenarios evaluated. Our proposed Phase 2 effort has a two-fold focus: ...

  5. Full Mueller Matrix Characterization of Imaged Samples using Digital Holography

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT007

    The Phase II effort will be to clearly demonstrate the feasibility and build a prototype of a noncontact, high-quality holographic polarimetry system with pixel level depth and Mueller matrix information with a user-friendly interface to image and display this data. The measurements of each data product will be validated with trusted truth samples. The system will be reproducible and will have a d ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing Sensor Fusion Technologies for Process Monitoring and Control.

    SBC: UNIVERSAL TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: DLA18A001

    This Phase II project aims to assemble the key set of sensor modalities that are needed to reliably view the key process anomalies and properties of laser powder bed fusion. The research team will down-select from the Phase I sensors investigated and integrate the sensors into a sensor fusion software package that facilitates data collection and synchronization, and eventually feedback control of ...

  7. High Throughput Testing of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: N18AT028

    Additive manufacturing is a disruptive new manufacturing paradigm that hold tremendous potential for creation of novel designs and introduction of novel new alloy systems. However, much of this potential remains unrealized due to a lack of robust material properties databases. Accurate calibration of materials models and robust part qualification and certification regimes both will require massive ...

  9. Information-based Norms on Flow, Operations and Traffic Over Networks (INFOTON)

    SBC: ISEA TEK, LLC            Topic: N18AT027

    The Internet of Things (IoT) connects people, data, and "things" (e.g., software, sensors, platforms), facilitating the translation of information into actions. Although naval platforms’ networks and communication suites have evolved significantly in the past few years to support such required connectivity, one of the greatest technical challenges still facing the military community is the proce ...

  10. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas

    SBC: AMERICAN TECHNICAL COATINGS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT013

    Successful completion of this Phase II proposal will fully characterize and evaluate a material for use in RF windows on hypersonic flight vehicles. Phase II will specifically examine the materials suitability through RF testing in X, Ku, and Ka bands and at elevated temperatures to 2000°F. The desired outcome will be a material with predictable, repeatable dielectric properties over frequency ...
