Fast Trajectory Generation in High Fidelity Geopotentials using Finite Elements, Mascons, and ParallelismSBC: ANALYTICAL MECHANICS ASSOCIATES, INC. Topic: AF09BT02
We propose to investigate the feasibility of obtaining fast and accurate trajectories using global geopotential models representing departures from the two-body plus J2 terms. The proposed geopotential formulations and numerical integration methods rely on multi-core processors and the emerging massive parallel capabilities of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) available to common personal computer ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Anasys Instruments Corp. Topic: AF08BT30
Anasys Instruments in collaboration with University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and subcontractor Dr. Konstantin Vodopyanov propose to develop the world’s first high speed nano infrared spectroscopy (“NanoIR”) capability. By combining and extending the capabilities of infrared spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy, this breakthrough platform will provide sub-100 nm chemical mapping capa ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Amtec Corporation Topic: AF09BT05
The mission of this proposed research is to develop ultracapacitors (also known as electrochemical or supercapacitors) to address an array of military applications. These applications include pulsed power for directed-energy and kinetic-energy weapons, sensors, and power supplies and control systems for aircraft and spacecraft. The proposed innovation employs carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coated with p ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TRANSPHORM, INC. Topic: N09T023
Transphorm proposes to demonstrate a normally off fast high voltage Gallium Nitride power switch solution. The switch would block to 1200V, have a threshold voltage greater than 5 V, and the phase 2 switch will target an on resistance less than 15 ohm-mm and current more than 1 Amp. To accomplish these targets, Transphorm will combine the design requirements of realizing a high (and positive) thre ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc. Topic: AF09BT21
The proposed effort develops the understanding required to assess the utility of using OAM states and quantum entanglement as a novel protocol for quantum key distribution for propagation through an aberrating medium such as the atmosphere. In addition a conceptual design of an experiment that is appropriate to further the development of this capability will be developed on the proposed Phase I e ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION Topic: ST092005
Small satellites working in coordinated manner as part of a distributed constellation hold the promise to revolutionize DoD space operations. However, small satellites also have significant inherent limitations. Their size limits the types of sensors that they can accommodate. It also limits propulsion, power generation and attitude control capabilities. One way of overcoming some of these lim ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION Topic: N10AT039
Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT have been developing tools and techniques that, together with existing 3D environment decision-making and navigation tools developed by AMRDEC in the PALACE program, are well-suited to the problem of autonomous vertical landing on unprepared landing sites. In this program, Aurora will team with MIT researchers and UC Santa Cruz (UCSC licenses PALACE technologies for ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION Topic: N10AT008
Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT propose to develop a model-based adaptive health estimation and real-time proactive control to identify gas turbine engine stability risks and avoid them through control action. In this concept, the engine control system actively monitors sensors and actuators, compares them against physical models, and infers which components may be performing poorly and may need to ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION Topic: AF08T026
Aurora and Georgia Tech’s Phase I efforts demonstrated the feasibility of a partially distributed control scheme with separate controllers on the engine core and fan, where the controllers are linked by a supervisory controller. This scheme is representative of the situation encountered in VTOL UAV design and the design of new turbo-props and variable pitch turbofans by the large commercial gas ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION Topic: AF08BT03
ABSTRACT: Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), proposes to further develop and test in realistic settings an innovative method for representing and managing multidisciplinary design information from a wide range of analysis tools. The practical implication resulting from this novel approach is a mathematical framework to confidently determ ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
