  2. Autonomous Onboard Failsafe System to Mitigate Common Failure Modes of Experimental SUAS

    SBC: PRIORIA ROBOTICS HOLDINGS, INC.            Topic: T501

    Automation improvements are needed to reduce the dependency on human reflexes and unreliable data links. Modern autopilots are capable of detecting loss-of-GPS and loss-of-communications. There is no mechanism for the aircraft to autonomously return to a safe landing zone under these conditions. Furthermore, experience has shown that existing controllers are not good at detecting bad position data ...

  3. Conjugate Etalon Spectral Imager (CESI) & Scanning Etalon Methane Mapper (SEMM)

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: T803

    Development of the CESI focal plane and optics technology will lead to miniaturized hyperspectral and SWIR-band spectral imaging instrumentation compatible with CubeSat and other nanosat platforms. The project will implement the technology by developing a CubeSat-compatible SEMM instrument for global mapping of atmospheric methane concentrations. Specific Phase I technical objectives include: - ...

  8. Coalition of Operators and Automation for Collaborative Tasking (COACT)

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: OSD13HS5

    Increasing the autonomy of unmanned vehicles potentially reduces operator workload and cognitive load. Realizing the promise of autonomy however, is difficult when deploying in environments with mobility and visibility challenges, enemy threats, risks of endangering civilians, and limited communication. Achieving full autonomy in the face of these challenges is both a hard technical problem and do ...

  9. CarbAl(TM) Based Thermal Management for Space Flight Systems Application

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: S304

    Thermal Transfer is a critical part of power electronics application in both terrestrial and space environments. Due to longer lifetime expectancies and harsh operational conditions, space vehicles require unique materials to deal with the increasing electrical and thermal loads placed upon the structure. Increasing use of power electronics including high current carrying semiconductor devices s ...

  10. Airborne Multi-Gas Sensor

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: S107

    Mesa Photonics proposes to develop an Airborne Multi-Gas Sensor (AMUGS) based upon two-tone, frequency modulation spectroscopy (TT-FMS). Mesa Photonics has developed a fiber-coupled implementation of TT-FMS that leverages telecommunications lasers as sources and WiFi electronics for signal processing. With this approach, sensitive trace gas detection in a robust, compact and low-power package has ...
