  3. Test of Advanced Fine Water Mist Nozzles in a Representative Spacecraft Atmosphere

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X205

    Fine water mist is being considered as a replacement technology for fire suppression on the next generation of manned spacecraft. It offers advantages in performance, ease of cleanup, compatibility with on-board environmental systems, and ability to recharge during a mission. ADA Technologies has designed a prototype hand-held extinguisher that is being tested at ambient environmental conditions. ...

  4. Production of Synthetic Lunar Simulants

    SBC: Zybek Advanced Products, Inc.            Topic: X303

    Zybek Advanced Products has proven the ability to produce industrial quantities of lunar simulant materials, including glass, agglutinate and melt breccias. These are critical components in the NU-LHT-series and OB1 lunar simulants. The feed stock for this simulant is a mining industry by-product. The feedstock contains many contaminates, may not always be available, and can be inconsistent. ...

  5. The Photo-Pneumatic CO2 Analyzer

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: S108

    We are proposing to build a new technology, the photo-pneumatic analyzer. It is small, solid-state, inexpensive, and appropriate for observations of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) from six of the seven robotic platforms being targeted by NASA in its solicitation. An inexpensive MEMS transducer is integrated into a miniature pair of gas cells to serve as the radiation sensitive element of the ana ...

  6. Turbopump Design for Deep Throttling Capability

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: T802

    This project will demonstrate the benefits of a partial emission pump coupled with a zero net positive suction pressure inducer design to achieve robust, deep throttling capability. This pump application is well suited for 5k to 15k lbf thrust range rocket engines.

  7. Low Power X-Ray Photon Resolving Imaging Array

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: S105

    The solid-state detector array is the primary technology to implement the current generation of space borne high-energy astronomy missions that are managed by NASA in partnership with the international community. Readout integrated circuitry (ROIC) specifically designed for photon resolving X-ray detection with solid-state detectors will create a new generation of high-performance X-ray imaging se ...

  8. Surface Optimization Techniques for Deployable Reflectors


    Under this and several other programs, CTD has developed TEMBOREG deployable solid-surface reflectors (TEMBOREG Reflectors) to provide future NASA and Air Force missions and commercial communications satellites with large RF apertures that can operate at very high operational frequencies (Ka band and above). TEMBOREG Reflectors incorporate non-tensioned graphite composite membranes that are forme ...

  9. Merging ORS Standards to Facilitate Rapid Development of Reusable Spacecraft Software


    DNet has been actively pursuing strategies for shortening the software development portion of the satellite development life-cycle for some time. We recognized upon analyzing the constituents of the traditional process that a disproportionate fraction of time is spent working with software that falls under one of two categories - developed from scratch to suit the needs of a new mission, or recycl ...

  10. Enabling Technology for Small Satellite Launch

    SBC: DESIGN NET ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: S401

    Access to space for Small Satellites is enabled by the use of excess launch capacity on existing launch vehicles. A range of sizes, form factors and masses need to be accommodated. An integration process that minimizes programmatic/technical risk to the primary, allows "late flow" integration and predictable cost/schedule for the secondary enables regular and cost-effective access. The integrati ...
