Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

To date, most CubeSat designs have been 6U or smaller and have operated within power budgets in the 10s of W or less. However, as the demand grows for greater CubeSat performance for all forms of research, operational, and commercial applications in upcoming years, these sensor-sats will require higher levels of power generation and power manage...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-154
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:The DoD requires accurate real-time knowledge of ionospheric variability in order to reduce one of the biggest error sources inherent in the use of critical systems such as Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR). OTHR is particularly susceptible to TIDs which are underspecified by current methods. In the proposed work, we will develop physics-ba...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-S1.05
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The IDA4D and AMIE data assimilation methods are currently of limited use for real-time space weather applications because either they don't run in real-time (IDA4D) or the real-time version (AMIE) does not ingest the full complement of data needed to provide high fidelity outputs. To correct this situation, in Phase-I, we propose to demonstrate...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-068
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

ABSTRACT: Cloud ice water content and cloud liquid water content strongly affect radiative transfer of solar energy to the atmosphere, and hence need to be taken into account in any modeling of the weather and climate. This proposal advances the poorly-known area of sensitivity of GPS RO to precipitation and clouds, and takes advantage of advan...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Colorado Boulder

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT29
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

ABSTRACT: The Air Force seeks to improve the accuracy of orbit specification and of 72-h orbit predictions beyond present capabilities. Thermospheric neutral density and satellite ballistic coefficient strongly impact satellite drag estimation, which is a leading source of error in orbit predictions in LEO. The goal of this Phase II project is ...
