  1. Diode Laser Systems for Space-Based Cold Atom Clocks

    SBC: VESCENT PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: AF103079

    ABSTRACT: We propose to combine distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser diodes with novel sideband locking schemes, MEMS atomic vapor cells, and offset phase locking to produce compact frequency-agile laser systems capable of autonomous operation on spaced-based platforms and remote environments. A master laser will output up to 40 mW of usable power and be locked to an atomic vapor cell forming ...

  2. Radiation-Resistant, High-Efficiency Direct Current-Direct Current (DC-DC) Converters For Spacecraft Loads

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF103080

    ABSTRACT: Delivery of power to satellite subsystems requires efficient DC-DC down converters that can support multiple spacecraft loads at very low output voltages. The converters must be tolerant to radiation, support loads of 25 watts or more, utilize a minimum amount of power during the conversion, and provide reliable operation for 15 years or longer. The key technical requirements are to im ...

  3. Radiation-Resistant, High-Efficiency Direct Current-Direct Current (DC-DC) Converters For Spacecraft Loads

    SBC: QORTEK INC            Topic: AF103080

    ABSTRACT: The new single-stage high step-down ratio/high power handling/high current capable solid-state power DC/DC converters will substantially increase the power density of radiation-resistant DC/DC converters. This new converter has the potential to boast power densities 3 5 times current state-of-the-art, while reaching radiation hardness unobtainable by conventional magnetic based solutio ...

  4. Advanced Region of Interest Foveation Catastrophe-based Morphing Compression

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: AF103081

    ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for advanced compression algorithms for exploitation of space imagery, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Advanced Region of Interest (ROI) Foveation Catastrophe-based Compression (ARIFCaC) software suite. It is based on new ROI foveation, POC"s Catastrophe-theory-based algorithmic software, and POC"s advanced lossless and lossy (b ...

  5. Bandwidth-Adaptive Lossless Inter-Channel Compression System

    SBC: Broadata Communications, Inc.            Topic: AF103081

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is seeking to develop a suite of processor and bandwidth-efficient, lossless or near-lossless image compression algorithms that maximize the exploitation of mission data from space-based, electro-optical sensors. The on-board image processing methods currently used in space are unsuitable for SSA applications because they fail to meet the SSA requirements for lossless comp ...

  6. MAI-1/2U-ADACS (Attitude Determination and Control System) for CubeSats

    SBC: Maryland Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: AF103083

    ABSTRACT: The MAI-1/2U-ADACS for CubeSats is a smaller than 1/2 U size complete ADACS system composed of a 3-axis reaction wheel, a novel 0.1 & #61616;-0.2degrees Earth Horizon sensor employing earth limb image processing in two orthogonal cameras, a sun sensor, 3-axis magnetometer, 3 torque coils and an attitude control computer that can accommodate additional sensors (such as GPS). The entire ...

  7. Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) for CubeSats

    SBC: Blue Canyon Technologies Inc.            Topic: AF103083

    ABSTRACT: To overcome the limited Attitude Determination and Control performance of current Cubesats, Blue Canyon Technologies proposes a reliable, high performance design compatible with a variety of cubesat configurations. The BCT FleXible ADCS Cubesat Technology (XACT) architecture leverages a powerful processing core with BCT"s micro-CMG or micro-Reaction Wheel Assemblies to enable a new ge ...

  8. Agile Space Radio (ASR)

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: AF103085

    ABSTRACT: Space Micro has developed unique and critically important technologies that solve all of these issues simultaneously, when combined with other industry standard satellite design practices can provide a reprogrammable, radiation hardened, scalable space grade communications radio. This platform, which we call the & #956;SDR (software defined radio), can be used as a multi-band, multi-wav ...

  10. High Compliance Thermal Interface Material for Space Applications

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: AF103086

    ABSTRACT: Electronic boxes need to be quickly and easily attached and removed from the satellite payload deck in a spacecraft structure. Hampering the removal process is the vulcanized (RTV) used as the Thermal Interface Material, TIM. Because of its strong bond, it makes removal of the boxes time-consuming, and difficult to rework. Compounding the problem is the fact that electronics continue t ...
