  3. 12U Agile Inspector CubeSat

    SBC: ExoTerra Resource, LLC            Topic: AF171074

    ExoTerra's 12U Agile Inspector CubeSat uses technology developed for deep space NASA missions to enable transit from LEO to GEO by a 12U CubeSat. This enables an affordable mission that can improve the ability to observe objects in GEO by over an order of magnitude. The system uses an iodine electric propulsion system and high specific power solar arrays to provide over 6 km/s of delta V at the h ...

  5. 3-Dimensional, high-Z graded alloy additive manufacturing for ICBM applications


    In Phase I, UTC successfully demonstrated the ability to build 3D, high-to-low-Z graded alloys (GA) with Selective laser melting (SLM) additive manufacturing (AM) techniques. In Phase II, UTC will fully automate and scale-up the GA AM process, and work with Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMCO) and Southern Research (SR) to fully characterize the process so components intended for use on LMCO missile syst ...

  6. 3D Direct Metal Adsorption Printing (DMAP)

    SBC: Digibeam Corporation            Topic: AF161010

    ABSTRACT: .3D printing has recently taking a lead role as a potential solution for future manufacturing. However, there are still many problems and limitations to the technology for cost effective high resolution, high throughput manufacturing. The beam alone is currently 2X larger than the program requirements for AF161-010 with a second barrier of throughput for larger, high resolution parts. T ...

  10. A Custom High Performance L-band ADC and Characterization of a First Generation DAC

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF161082

    Next generation GPS satellite/ground communication systems must be robust to hostile jammers which degrade link budget and desensitize reception. A proposed solution is to use frequency hopping techniques to communicate in a spectrum space free of hostile jammers and a radio in which the agility and robustness is provided by high-performance broadband data-converters. The so called software define ...
