  1. Validated Engineering Tools for Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Opterus Research and Development, Inc. proposes to develop and validate multi-scale thin-ply High Strain Composites (HSCs) constitutive modeling tools for incorporation into commercial finite element analysis codes. The constitutive models will capture the time-temperature-load-deformation viscoelastic characteristics common to HSCs as well as the yielding or permanent deformation associated with ...

  3. Integrated Mid-Infrared Sources Enabled by Waveguides Written with Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: AKTIWAVE LLC            Topic: T8

    This proposal addresses, for the first time, the demonstration of integrated mid-infrared sources based on waveguiding in a bonded solid-state laser material and periodically poled nonlinear material. A focused femtosecond laser beam allows for precisely localized modification of the refractive index of a material, therefore enabling to create waveguiding structures. The offeror has demonstrated f ...

  5. Development of Novel, Optically-Based Instrumentation for Aircraft System Testing and Control

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: T202

    We propose to design, build and evaluate a prototype of a compact, robust, optically-based sensor for making temperature and multi-species concentration measurements in propulsion system ground and flight test environments. This system will utilize a widely tunable near infrared light source to make absorption measurements of combustion reactant and products in the combustion zone (with accuracy f ...

  6. Ultra Compact Cloud Physics Lidar for UAV Platforms

    SBC: SIGMA SPACE CORPORATION            Topic: T401

    We have designed a compact two-color, polarization-sensitive instrument to measure cloud characteristics from a high altitude UAV and can also be widely deployed as inexpensive ground-based ceilometers and aerosol finders. The instrument is modular, can operate with one or two wavelengths, and can measure depolarization or not depending on the need. The instrument is in two pressurized boxes, an o ...

  7. Passive Wireless SAW Humidity Sensors

    SBC: SENSANNA INCORPORATED            Topic: T601

    This proposal describes the preliminary development of passive wireless surface acoustic wave (SAW) based humidity sensors for NASA application to distributed humidity monitoring systems. SAW devices are a platform technology for passive wireless sensing of numerous possible measurands. SAW devices have been demonstrated as passive wireless temperature sensors in NASA contracts NNK04OA28C and NN ...

  8. Adaptive Magnetorheological Isolator for Ground Support Equipment

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, LLC            Topic: T602

    The minimization of vibration-induced damage has become a critical issue for rocket launch ground support electronics (GSE). GSE located near a major rocket launch can be exposed to damaging environments including heat, rocket plume impingement, vibration, and acoustics. This extreme vibratory environment results in the need for extensive check out and frequent repairs of GSE systems after each la ...

  9. Turbopump Design for Deep Throttling Capability

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: T802

    A rocket engine turbopump design using a partial emission pump combined with a zero net positive suction pressure inducer design is proposed to achieve a robust, deep throttling capability in 5k to 15k lbf thrust range rocket engines. A partial emission pump can provide better low-flow/thrust stability at a better efficiency than full emission pumps in this throttle range. A zero net positive suc ...

  10. Integrating Prognostics in Automated Contingency Management Strategies for Advanced Aircraft Controls

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: T101

    Impact Technologies, in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to develop and demonstrate innovative technologies to integrate prognostics into Automated Contingency Management (ACM) for advanced aircraft controls. Without consideration of prognostic information, the traditional reactive fault tolerant control approaches may fail to provide optimal fault mitigation/accommodat ...
