  4. HQ-55 VTOL UAS for Ship Based Operation

    SBC: Latitude Engineering, LLC            Topic: 832

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The Hybrid Quadrotor concept, developed by Latitude Engineering, combines the high power density of electric motors and propellers with the high energy density of a piston engine and liquid fuel. Together, each technology enables maximum performance in HQ's two regimes of flight: the electric system is responsible for lift while hovering (high power, short endurance), and the g ...

  8. Rapid construction of 3-D Satellite models from limited amounts of 2-D imagery

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF181020

    The space domain plays a vital role in commercial, scientific and defense endeavors. Continued safe access to and use of space demands an increased awareness of the capabalities of satellites on orbit and an ability to detect changes that may indicate status and health or operator intent. The proposed research will address this challenge by studying how to rapidly and automatically extract 3D info ...

  10. High Performance Radiation Hardened Solar Power

    SBC: REGHER SOLAR LLC            Topic: AF181040

    Reducing degradation of solar arrays is critically important for Orbital Transfer Elements (OTE). Currently used III-V solar cells suffer from radiation induced degradation.In this project we propose novel ultrathin bifacial silicon solar cells for OTE, which are rad-hard, enabling low degradation, and reducing the cost both in $/W and $/kg by a factor of 10 compared to III-V cells.Ultrathin bifac ...
