  2. Implementation of Extreme STOL Capability in Cruise Efficient Aircraft

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: T202

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), will develop enabling technologies for an aircraft that is capable of Extreme Short Takeoff and Landing (ESTOL), while retaining efficient transonic cruise performance, by applying a comprehensive, systems-based design and analysis approach to innovative combinations of active flow control methodologies. The development of t ...

  3. Physical Improvements in Exciter/Igniter Units

    SBC: Alphaport, Inc.            Topic: X903

    The proposed project consists of developing a prototype exciter/igniter unit that can operate to a subset of expected flight performance requirements. The main focus of this development effort will be the physical integration of a small, compact exciter with a "flight like" igniter or spark plug. This exciter/igniter prototype will represent the exciter/igniter units used to generate sparks that ...

  4. Innovative CO2 Analyzer Technology for the Eddy Covariance Flux Monitor

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build and evaluate NDIR Analyzers that can observe eddy covariance flux of CO2 from unmanned airborne platforms. For both phases, a total of four analyzers are to be evaluated for their nose (ppb rms, Dry Mole Fraction) and susceptibility to artifacts on platform. We present original framework for their evaluation. It consists of expressions for their potential noises, artifacts and ...

  5. Cooled Bolometer IR Monolithic FPA

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: S401

    Future space-based observatories imaging in the 4-40 ìm spectral regime will be passively cooled. The objective of this research effort is to demonstrate near theoretical performance of bolometer-based infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) covering the 4-40 ìm wavelength region by operating the FPA at reduced temperature. Amorphous silicon-alloy resistive bolomoters exhibit increased temperature co ...

  6. Wide Output Range Power Processing Unit for Electric Propulsion

    SBC: COLORADO ELECTRONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    A power supply concept capable of operation over 25:1 and 64:1 impedance ranges at full power has been successfully demonstrated in our Phase I effort at efficiencies of 96% and above. The benefits of electric propulsion systems are highest when an electric thruster can be operated at high efficiencies over wide ranges of thrust and specific impulse. Hall and ion thruster technologists are close ...

  7. High Efficiency Three Phase Resonant Conversion for Standardized Architecture Power System Applications

    SBC: COLORADO ELECTRONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    A low-cost, standardized-architecture power system is proposed for NASA electric propulsion (EP) applications. Three approaches are combined to develop a system that will meet current and future NASA needs and exceed currently available power processor unit (PPU) performance in terms of electrical efficiency, specific mass (kg/kW), and cost. The approaches include the use of (a) high-efficiency ...

  8. Precision Hinge Actuator for Advanced Telescope Systems

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: S303

    CTD proposes to investigate the deployment repeatability and microdynamic stability of a hinge and demonstration this repeatability in a deployable mirror test article, which incorporates the proposed precision self-locking hinge actuator. If successful, the proposed device will be substantially lighter, simpler, more robust, and more easily controlled than other state-of-the-art actuators for de ...

  9. Low Mass Aeroshell Deployment Mechanism

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: S704

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) will develop new shape memory polymer (SMP) deployment mechanisms for actuating thermal protective systems (TPS) panels to create a deployable large surface area aeroshell. This innovation will utilize VeriflexTM -- CRG's high performance SMP material -- to create a low mass actuation system for a deployable the aeroshell design. VeriflexTM-based mechanisms ...
