SBC: SPECIAL AEROSPACE SERVICES Topic: AF18AT009
In partnership with the Colorado School of Mines Alliance for the Development of Additive Processing Technologies and with support from the Johns Hopkins University Energetic Research Group, Special Aerospace Services will provide the Air Force with characterization of fully dense Selective Laser Melted GRCop-84 subjected to a variety of manipulations that affect key performance metrics for regene ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CMSOFT, INC. Topic: AF18AT004
The main objective of this STTR Phase I effort is two-fold. First, to develop a robust approach for coupling the flow solver Kestrel with the multidisciplinary software tool AERO Suite in order to enable the physics-based modeling and simulation of the dynamics of Aerodynamics Decelerator Systems (ADS) such as parachutes from deployment to terminal velocity or terminal descent and touchdown, and t ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF18AT011
This SBIR project will develop and demonstrate efficient electron emitter based on carbon nanotubecopper (CNT-Cu) composite for passive discharging of spacecraft in plasma environment. A spacecraft moving through harsh plasma environment collects electrons, which leads to the spacecraft charging up to several kilovolts. High voltage between different parts of the spacecraft can ignite arcing, whic ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: AF18AT010
Free Space Optical (FSO) communication systems provide many benefits for satellite communications, including high data rates and low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) compared to traditional RF communication systems.Additionally, FSO systems operate without RF emissions and are inherently immune to RF interference and jamming.The narrow optical beams and small Field-of-View of the optical receivers al ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: AF18AT011
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes the development of a composite laminate cathode coating based largely on consumer off the shelf (COTS) industrial materials functionalized to possess a low work function, negative electron affinity surface. The cathode coating is applicable to any surface of a spacecraft, regardless of shape or material, and allows passive one wire operation for spacecraft cha ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: AF18AT010
The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement a low reconfigurable, reliable Free Space Optical (FSO) link supporting high bandwidth communications for satellite to satellite or satellite to ground communication. The FSO Transceiver (Transmitter/Receiver) to be implemented will be small Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) such that it can be easily carried by compact spa ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: APPLIED DEFENSE SOLUTIONS, INC. Topic: AF17CT02
This is a prototype system that will take raw observation data, detect and characterize maneuvers, and use reinforcement learning to understand and react to evasive RSO behaviors in near real time. This will provide a framework to evaluate autonomous behavior strategies, such a safety, effectiveness, and robustness to manipulation. This work will enable surveillance operators to distinguish betwee ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC Topic: AF17CT02
The DF&NN team has significant experience in delivering Space Domain Awareness tools. These tools will be applied to 2 years of GEO ephemeris data of active satellites at DF&NN. The RDESB prototype will reduce the risk in rapidly discovering the behavioral patterns of potentially evasive and/or ambiguous active resident space objects. RDESB will detect non-Keplerian behavior in ephemeris data for ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
Adaptive Markov Inference Game Optimization (AMIGO) for Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite BehaviorsSBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF17CT02
Space superiority requires space protection and space situational awareness (SSA), which rely on rapid and accurate space object behavioral and operational intent discovery. The focus of this project is to develop a stochastic approach for rapid discovery of evasive satellite behaviors. Designing the innovative decision support tool has numerous challenges: (i) partial observable actions; (ii) eva ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & SPACE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC Topic: AF17CT01
The Air Force is seeking solutions for a sun-tracking millimeter wave radiometer to measure atmospheric attenuation over a high dynamic range. The V- and W- bands have rarely been used for space communications and telemetry applications, but rapidly increasing government and commercial bandwidth needs will require future solutions within these bands. Our team, comprised of experienced scientists, ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
