  1. Turn-Key Small Satellite Thruster with On-Demand Pressurization and Non-Toxic Propellant

    SBC: Benchmark Space Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    As the new space revolution develops, the number of small satellites is expected to grow to thousands launched each year. Following the current commercial satellite demonstration period, production spacecraft and constellations will depend on innovative micro-scaled propulsion technology to meet mission capability and endurance requirements. Most satellite integrators and end-users have not yet id ...

  8. Multi-Color Long-wave Infrared (LWIR) Imagers for Infantry Applications

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: N191001

    Marines need multispectral imagers to identify hazards while retaining day/night targeting capability. QuantaSpec has already developed a hyperspectral imager that has a small size, weight, power, and cost footprint. QuantaSpec's approach can be further improved to give hyperspectral imaging capability to thermal sights with an additional weight of a few tens of grams over the thermal imager footp ...

  9. Through-the-Hull Data Transfer

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: N191038

    The need for wireless data transfer through the pressure hull of a submarine is presented. A method to achieve high rate data transfer wirelessly is proposed. Such a method uses a transmitter and receiver featuring innovative characteristics. It can be retrofit into vessels with no additional penetrations in the hull. In Phase I, RF simulations will be developed, along with prototypes of key eleme ...
