  1. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier


    MaXentric proposes the GAU2x2 wideband power amplifier system. The design combines MaXentrics wideband RF PA technology with advanced digital signal processing in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation. Since very little power is dissipated as heat, the package and heat sink size can be minimized. In ...

  4. Advancing Hyperspectral Imaging through IntegratedCompressive Sensing / Inpainting via Machine Learning


    Hyperspectral datasets are massive. This size makes them difficult to acquire, store, transmit, analyze and use. Hyperspectral imagers (HSI) are also costly and complex, taking significant time or portions of a focal plane to acquire each spectral band. In addition, orbital HSIs are susceptible to radiation damage and inaccessible for repairs, making any damage long-lasting.nbsp;In this effort, we ...

  5. Dynamically Leveraged Automated (N) Multibody Trajectory Optimization

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: H9

    CU Aerospace (CUA) proposes further development of the Dynamically Leveraged Automated (N) Multibody Trajectory Optimization (DyLAN) tool, which solves impulsive and low-thrust global optimization problems in multibody regimes, and can do so in an automated fashion. NASA and commercial entities are in need of advanced methods that allow for rapid analysis of complex optimal trajectory problems, so ...

  6. A Cognitive Communications Protocols Suite for Networked Space Platforms for Autonomous Dynamic Spectrum Co-existence with User-Initiated Service Support

    SBC: Bluecom Systems And Consulting LLC            Topic: T5

    The STTR topic T5.01 envisions Autonomous Communications Systems (ACS) that can be aware of RF environment and the network status and learn from experience to enhance adaptability to nominal/anomalous conditions, self-reconfigure network connections, dynamically maximize performance in response to sensed conditions and mitigate system-level effects of outages and interference. In Phase II, Bluecom ...

  7. Multi-Physics NTR Safety Analyses

    SBC: Little Prairie Services            Topic: Z10

    Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) offers high promise to reduce launch mass, decrease mission costs and increase mission effectiveness, particularly for crewed missions to the planets. However, NTP has been plagued with high uncertainties in cost, schedule and safety, particularly launch safety. To reduce programmatic uncertainty, an unambiguous approach to documenting NTP safety prior to, during a ...

  9. Compact CO2 Instrumentation for Small Aerial Platforms

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S1

    Over the past decade, the importance of understanding the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide and othergreenhouse gases has been recognized. A variety of research studies funded by NASA, DOE and NOAA tomeasure the fluxes of CO2 from average conditions have been performed. In particular, flux measurements of CO2 in the boundary layer are critical toward understanding the carbon budget for this ...

  10. Type-II Superlattice Based Low Dark Current Short-Wavelength Infrared Photodetectors With Optical Response From 0.4 to 2.5um

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: S1

    In recent years, Type-II superlattices have experienced significant development. However, the full potential of Type-II superlattice has not been fully explored and alternate superlattice architectures hold great promise. Despite demonstration of SWIR photodetectors based on this material system, there has been no report about Type-II superlattice-based photodetectors that have been sensitive to v ...
