  1. Massively-parallel, low-dissipation, compressible, two-phase discretization for high-speed flows

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF182056

    The objectives of the project are to develop and demonstrate a high-fidelity simulation tool to predict atomization of liquid jet in supersonic environment targeting for high-speed air-breathing systems. The main goals are to assess existing state-of-the-art numerical methods for compressible multiphase flows and to develop a novel (approximately) energy and entropy preserving scheme which can cor ...

  6. Comb-based Heterodyne and Synchronization Module (CHaSM)

    SBC: Vector Atomic Inc            Topic: AF182067

    Vector Atomic will design a time transfer module capable of global-scale synchronization of assets to better than 10 fs. The Comb-based Heterodyne and Synchronization Module (CHaSM) uses an established two-way optical time transfer scheme that is insensitive to signal dropouts and turbulence and compensates for relative motion between moving platforms.

  8. Sensor to Establish the Initial Orbit of Deployed Satellites

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: AF182071

    Small secondary space payloads, in particular cubesats, deployed from a launch vehicle pose resource and processing problems for conventional space situational awareness network (SSN) systems. Cubesats do not have the ability to tip and cue the network with ephemeris data at the time of deployment. Typically the SSN needs days to weeks to establish credible cubesat ephemerides before the cubesat c ...

  9. Photonically-Integrated Rubidium Inertial Measurement Unit for Space (PRIMUS)

    SBC: Vector Atomic Inc            Topic: AF182072

    Precise knowledge of position and orientation is essential for modern aerospace and space exploration. Launch vehicles such as Falcon-9 reach their target destination using an inertial measurement unit (IMU) and GPS aiding. Space telescopes use gyroscopes to maintain precise pointing for long intervals, enabling high-resolution images of the Earth. Future missions will require even more precise gu ...
