  1. Electronically Tunable Narrow-Band Infrared Focal Plane Array Based on the Quantum-Confined Stark Effect in Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: AF182068

    Spectral imaging in the infrared enables cameras to not only detect objects in the scene, but also provide information that can be used to determine their chemical composition. Variations in emissivity can be exploited using spectral imaging to improve contrast and object detection. In addition, certain spectral bands can be exploited to reduce visual degradation caused by dust and weather obscura ...

  2. Compound semiconductor bypass and blocking diodes with improved temperature and radiation performance

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF182069

    In this Phase I program we will demonstrate the feasibility of building high-performance diodes for space arrays using compound semiconductors. Wider bandgap materials offer not only higher breakdown voltages using thinner device structures, they also enable substantially improved high-temperature performance and enhanced radiation resistance. We will first carry out a trade study using advanced d ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...
