  1. Catalytic N2O Decomposition for Piloted Scramjet Ignition

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF083121

    Achieving hypersonic flight with air breathing vehicles using logistics fuels is a demanding task. A significant challenge in the development of single use and reusable systems alike is ignition of the scramjet engine at low Mach numbers. Unfortunately, current ignition systems do not provide reliable performance at low Mach number. Therefore, there is a strong need for a significant ignition capa ...

  2. Adaptive Zoom Collimator Design and Risk Reduction

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF103018

    Ground-based testing of air / space-borne sensors & trackers (SBIRS, GMD, THAAD, etc.) requires achromatic optical collimation systems that can project dynamic scenes & targets at very large apparent distances. The collimation system must undergo major adjustments to optimally accommodate the FOV of various test articles, but the projection quality is extremely sensitive to misalignment of the lar ...

  3. Cell-to-Cell Thermal/Projectile Communication Mitigation during Thermal Runaway in Batteries

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries are ubiquitous in space and military applications, generating more efficient and effective systems. The increase in Li-ion cells also represents an increase in hazardous cell failure instances. Electrical shorting, overcharging, over-discharging, and physical damage to the cells can result in thermal runaway (TR), yielding violent and explosive events that can result ...

  4. Post Processing of Satellite Catalog Data for Event

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: AF151083

    This SBIR effort supports the development and demonstration of an alternative approach to the discovery and tracking of resident space objects to free up Government resources (human and sensor) by leveraging advanced algorithms, non-traditional data sources, and on-site mission support, in order to better characterize the evolving space environment. This would reduce the burden on Air Force operat ...

  5. Cognitive Computing Application for Defense Contracting

    SBC: Applied Research in Acoustics LLC            Topic: AF151194

    MICA was selected and awarded to ARiA under SBIR Topic AF151-194, technically managed by AFRL/RITB with SAF/AQ-OTI as the sponsor organization. Under prior Phase I and II SBIR efforts ARiA developed, trained, and tested the Machine Interface for Contracting Assistance (MICA). MICA leverages academic and commercial-sector advances in cognitive-computing, deep learning, graph storage, informational ...

  6. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  8. Adaptive Optics Prototype for a Meter-class Telescope used for Space Surveillance

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF171023

    Guidestar Optical Systems (Guidestar) proposes to fabricate and deliver a prototype Adaptive Optics (AO) system for a meter class telescope used for Space Surveillance. This AO system was designed in the Phase I effort to integrate with a Government provided AO system. Through modeling and simulation, Guidestar demonstrated the ability to detect closely spaced objects at Geosynchronous orbit from ...

  9. SatMod: Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Increases in space traffic have caused an ever-growing need to recognize, track, and inspect both known and unknown satellites in-situ. Imagery from ground observation platforms provide a convenient and versatile data source for such characterization but is often limited in both quantity and quality. Rapid and automated 3D reconstruction of satellite models from limited 2D imagery would significan ...

  10. Dual-mode Energetics

    SBC: Rocky Mountain Scientific Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF173012

    RMSL has identified several potential propellant formulations that show promise in dual mode applications. These formulations include: (1) development of a novel organic oxidizer and (2) the mechanical modification of traditional nitramine propellants to tune propulsion and detonability performance. Preliminary analysis suggested that the proposed new explosive, MHX, had promise for dual-mode appl ...
