  1. SPHERES Autonomy and Identification Testbed

    SBC: Payload Systems, Inc.            Topic: T101

    Many future space missions involve formation flying spacecraft performing imaging, inspection, assembly, and servicing missions. Having multiple spacecraft in close proximity undergoing comparatively rapid maneuvers dramatically changes the nature of safe modes. No longer can a spacecraft just null its rates, point its arrays towards the Sun and phone home. Now, the faulty spacecraft must also ...

  3. Novel Tunable Dye Laser for Lidar Detection

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: T402

    A tunable dye laser for Lidar detection will be fabricated based on the innovative dye-doped Holographic Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals (HPDLC) technology. The demonstration of the tunable lasing of dye-doped holographic polymer dispersed liquid crystal is the main focus during the Phase-I research, while the commercial tunable-laser product will be realized in Phase-II. By carefully choosing ...

  4. Coordinated Control of Multi-Agent Systems in Rapidly Varying Environments

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: T101

    The main objective of this Phase II STTR project is to develop advanced control algorithms that enable multiple autonomous agents to perform complex tasks in rapidly changing environment cooperatively. We plan to use the forest fire monitoring mission to demonstrate the benefits of the proposed technology. The mission concept involves using multiple Low Altitude Short Endurance (LASE) Unmanned Ae ...

  5. Full-spectrum Integrated Reaction Evaluation and Synthesis (FIRES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T017

    Highly energetic chemical processes play a central role in many military and commercial applications. For example, spectral emissions from missile plumes, arising from high-velocity chemical interactions of exhaust gases with the atmosphere, are used to detect, track, and identify threat targets. Detailed, quantitative knowledge of the energy-dependent chemical reaction cross sections and rates i ...

  6. Lightweight Deformable Mirror Systems

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In this project, a lightweight membrane mirror device will be integrated into an adaptive control system, capable of correcting static and dynamic primary-mirror shape errors in a space-based telescope. The core innovation will be the use of a multi-zone, deformable mirror fabricated by thin-film surface micromachining. Contour shape of the mirror membrane will be controlled by an array of electro ...

  8. A compact, UAV compatible, high-definition hyperspectral imaging system

    SBC: Flight Landata, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation is a compact, UAV compatible, high-definition hyperspectral imaging system. The system concurrently-acquires a hyperspectral image using a compact grating imaging spectrometer and a much-higher spatial resolution color photographic image using a portable, measurement-grade, high-definition CCD camera (2,000 x 1,312 pixel). The spectral resolution of the hyperspectral image is better ...

  9. Imaging and Analyzing Plant Stresses in the Ag-Ecology

    SBC: Growtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed R/R&D effort will obtain new improved, in situ measurements of vegetation using a computer-based fluorescence imaging system that images and processes the plant's cellular energy emissions to quantify and diagnose the plant's photosynthetic pathways. With multi-spectral bandwidths and image processing which increase the system's sensitivity, fluorescence-imaging diagnoses early plant ...

  10. Improved SiC Materials for High Power Electronics

    SBC: PHOENIX INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon has long been the semiconductor of choice for high-voltage power electronic applications. Recently, SiC has attracted attention because SiC is projected to have better performance than silicon. [1] SiC power switching devices have yet to becommercialized, largely due to SiC crystal defects, most notably the device-killing micropipe defect, which does not permit high total current parts t ...
