Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Florida

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T11.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

Distributed Spacecraft Missions (DSM) have become increasingly important in the effort to extend the capabilities of instruments to gather critical Earth and Space science data. DSMs, which include constellations, formations and clusters, have already been employed and have been proposed for several future space science missions. The Magnetosphe...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H9.03
Budget: 04/20/16 - 04/19/18

Today's mission designers rely on state of the art tools with modern graphical user interface (GUI) elements and real-time 3D interactive graphics to visualize their trajectories and orbit control strategies. NASA GSFC's General Mission Analysis Tool (GMAT) offers advanced mission design and optimization capabilities with a flexible GUI, but its...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: H9.03
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Today's mission designers rely on state of the art tools with modern GUI elements and real-time 3D interactive graphics to visualize their trajectories and orbit control strategies. One such tool, NASA GSFC's General Mission Analysis Tool (GMAT), offers advanced mission design and optimization capabilities with a flexible GUI. However, its curre...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-076
Budget: 09/17/14 - 11/28/16

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force is tasked with detecting, tracking, identifying, characterizing, and cataloguing RSOs. This is currently done using a disparate network of sensors that are shared with other missions. The increasing number of objects and scarcity of sensors makes the task of identifying and discriminating RSOs even more challenging. ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-S5.05
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

In the near future we will see the development of space mission architectures where multiple spacecraft work cooperatively as a cluster to achieve mission objectives. Fault management (FM) is a critical challenge that must be addressed, especially when multiple spacecraft are working in proximity. Automatic fault management reduces the effort r...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB131-008
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Multiple government and commercial organizations are currently exploring space missions involving several spacecraft operating in formations or clusters. Many of these systems involve gathering data from distributed sources to support mission objectives. This necessitates an inter-spacecraft communications architecture sufficient to pass data an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB131-009
Budget: 11/05/13 - 02/06/14

There are many data intensive mission payloads for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) that collect more data than is practical to transmit through the downlink. The ability to autonomously process and classify this data on board can significantly reduce the downlink bandwidth requirements, thereby making it more feasible to tran...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-076
Budget: 09/25/13 - 06/30/14

ABSTRACT: A holistic RSO space situational awareness algorithm will be developed that integrates Finite Set Statistics (FISST) with Hiearchical Mixtures of Experts (HME) and Multiple Model Adaptive Estimation (MMAE). Advanced orbit determination filters such as Splitting Gaussian Mixture Unscented Kalman Filters will perform as banks of experts...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB131-008
Budget: 05/01/13 - 02/03/14

Resources available through the System F6 cluster can greatly simplify a participating spacecraft s design. Our proposal encompasses three innovations: (1) Common Application for Sensorcraft Missions (CASM), an application that will be installed on the System F6 cluster to manage the picosat/cluster interface; (2) Sensorcraft Application INTerfa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB123-004
Budget: 01/31/13 - 10/31/13

Simulations that connect to testbeds are frequently used in space operations testing. Many of these testbeds have characteristics that are desirable to others in the field, but they are geographically distributed across the nation. The ability to connect multiple, remote testbeds to a single core simulation offers a significant enhancement of ca...
