Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-067
Budget: 09/19/12 - 03/19/13

Flexible communications payloads for small satellites are becoming more capable and ready for critical missions. As the role of the CubeSat and NanoSat continues to evolve communications payloads play a critical role in expanding the mission sets and tasks these satellites. Larger Geosynchronous based satellite systems are evolving and expandi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: AF05-034
Budget: 07/12/12 - 04/12/13

The project will develop a high performance software defined radio payload system that will be hosted on a Cube Satellite vehicle. The Cube Satellite vehicle will provide a relayed data link from high latitude ground terminals through the geosynchronous Multi-User Objective System (MUOS). The radio payload will have cognitive radio architecture ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-088
Budget: 09/13/11 - 12/15/13

ABSTRACT: Low power software defined radios are needed for the CubeSat class of space vehicles. In the case of 1U CubeSats communications payloads are needed that draw less than 50mW of power. The Vulcan Wireless LPC-SDR meets these requirements by architecting the radio from the ground up for low power. The processing and RF front end all ne...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-077
Budget: 03/02/11 - 03/02/12

ABSTRACT: The objective of this solicitation is to develop and demonstrate a crosslink transceiver capable of high data rates. The transceiver must be designed to handle the radiation environment found on a GEO orbit for a 20 year mission. In addition, the communication link must be designed to have significant link margin to be able to penetr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-070
Budget: 08/27/10 - 11/27/12

High performance RF payloads have been identified as providing significant utility for applications on Nano Satellites and Cube Satellites in low earth orbits. In the Phase 1 study various CubeSat payloads were studied for utility. Various missions were identified as high payoff demonstrations for on orbit experiments. Conventionally orbital...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-193
Budget: 05/12/10 - 07/13/12

Spectral efficient waveforms allow for more users to share a precious resource of allocated spectrum for space communications. Designing waveforms which are able to perform simultaneously perform tracking of the vehicle as well as passing data will yield significant advantages to the satellite operator. Further, tailoring the complexity of the...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-088
Budget: 03/12/10 - 11/12/10

Due to extreme power limitations on CubeSat vehicles there is a demand for very low power footprint radios that are also flexible. This project develops a software defined radio with orbital average power below 50mW. BENEFIT: As stated in the description of this topic, CubeSats are generally viewed as being incapable of conducting serious m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-086
Budget: 03/12/10 - 11/12/10

This project proposes a small, lightweight, low power type 1 encryption/decryption module that supports NSA Suite B (includes AES), and is designed to allow a cryptographically secure networking with multiple encrypted channels. BENEFIT: Some of the encryption code and hardware developed under this program can be applied to a FIPS140-2 cert...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-070
Budget: 12/31/09 - 12/30/10

Payloads with military utility are needed to enhance the mission performance of CubeSats. High performance RF payloads are needed to expand the capabilities of CubeSats. High performance ISR payloads such as SIGINT systems can benefit from the space vantage point and cover vast areas rapidly. This project will package a SIGINT payload into a ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-193
Budget: 02/13/09 - 11/13/09

The proposed waveforms enable spectral efficient modulation to be implemented effectively for space communications applications. Reduction of EIRP while maintaining the maximum utilization of spectral efficiency is the key performance metrics. The crest factor is minimized through digital signal processing. BENEFIT: The results of this effort ...
