  2. AUTOMATION OF REQUIREMENTS DEVELOPMENT UTILIZING A DESK TOP COMPUTER

    SBC: Bruce G. Jackson & Assocs.            Topic: N/A

    NASA IS CONTINUALLY DEVELOPING NEW SYSTEMS RANGING FROM COMPUTER SOFTWARE TO TEST FACILITIES TO LARGE SPACECRAFT. EACH SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT IS INITIATED AND CONTROLLED THROUGH THE USE OF REQUIREMENTS SPECIFICATIONS. THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN AUTOMATED TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION SYSTEM FOR A DESK TOP COMPUTER. THE SYSTEM WILL BE PROTOTYPED TO DEVELOP AND TEST CON ...

  3. NARROW BANDGAP SEMICONDUCTING SILICIDES: INTRINSIC INFRARED DETECTORS ON A SILICON CHIP

    SBC: Colorado Research Development            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS A FUNDAMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF THE OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF THREE NARROW BANDGAP, SEMICONDUTING TRANSITION METAL SILICIDES. THESE MATERIALS MAY BE SUITABLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CLASS OF INTRINSIC INFRARED DETECTORS INTEGRATED DIRECTLY ONTO A SILICON CHIP. DISTINCT ADVANTAGES INCLUDES A COMPATABILITY WITH EXISTING SILICON MICROELECTRONICS PROCESSING ENABLING THE MONOLIT ...

  4. ADAPTIVE COMPUTATIONAL METHOD FOR FLUID-STRUCTURE INTERACTION IN INTERNAL FLOWS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    SUPER ACCURATE ADAPTIVE COMPUTATIONAL SCHEMES FOR THE ANALYSIS OF FLUID STRUCTURE INTERACTION AND COMPLEX THREE-DIMENSIONAL INTERNAL FLOWS ARE TO BE DEVELOPED. NEW PETROV-GALERKIN FINITE ELEMENT METHODS FOR SOLVING THE NAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS. COUPLED WITH THE EQUATIONS OF MOTION OF ELASTIC DUCTS AND MANIFOLDS, ARE TO BE DEVELOPED AND USED TO SIMULATE FLOWS IN AEROSPACE PROPULSION SYSTEMS (SUCH AS ...

  5. KNOWLEDGE BASE DICTIONARY FOR INTEGRATION OF ENGINEERING AND OPERATIONS SYSTEMS

    SBC: Computer Technology Associates            Topic: N/A

    EACH TIME NASA DEVELOPS A SPACECRAFT, IT DEVELOPS, AT THE SAME TIME, A LARGE BODY OF INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE IN THE FORM OF ENGINEERING DATA, SPACECRAFT TEST PROCEDURES, AND OPERATIONAL CONSTRAINTS. UNFORTUNATELY, MUCH OF THIS KNOWLEDGE IS NEVER TRANSITIONED TO OPERATIONS, WHICH FREQUENTLY REINVENTS IT (OR WORSE, NEVER DISCOVERS IT). CTA PROPOSES A SYSTEMS TECHNIQUE, A KNOWLEDGE BASE DICTIONARY, ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A CROSSED LENS GALLIUM ARSENIDE PHOTOVALTAIC CONCENTRATOR, WITH AN AMO OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY OF 22%, FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: ENTECH, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ENTECH IS PLEASED TO PROPOSE TO NASA THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INNOVATIVE CROSSED LENS GALLIUM ARSENIDE PHOTOVOLTAIC CONCENTRATOR, CAPABLE OF PROVIDING AN OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCYOF 22% IN THE SPACE ENVIRONMENT. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL UTILIZE THREE STATE-OF-THE-ART DEVELOPMENTS: (I) A CYLINDRICAL LENS/FRESNEL LENS CROSSED-COUPLED OPTICAL CONCENTRATOR WHICH WILL PROVIDE 96% OPTICAL EFFICIENCY AT 100-20 ...

  7. K BASE: A HYBRID ANALOGICAL/SEMANTIC MODELER FOR COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN,

    SBC: Gms Technology            Topic: N/A

    LACK OF NON-GEOMETRIC KNOWLEDGE IS IDENTIFIED AS A FUNDAMENTAL FLAW OF THE MODELERS UPON WHICH MOST TRADITIONAL THREE-DIMENSIONAL COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD) SYSTEMS ARE FOUNDED. A HYBRID REPRESENTATION SCHEME IS OUTLINED WHICH ADDS NON-GEOMETRIC SEMANTICS TO THE TRADITIONAL MODELING METHODS TO FORM A KNOWLEDGE BASE (K-BASE). THE K-BASE SYSTEM OUTLINED BORROWS CONCEPTS FROM ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ...

  8. METAL HYDRIDES FOR INTEGRATION OF SPACECRAFT HYDROGEN RESOURCES

    SBC: Hydrogen Consultants Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING METAL HYDRIDE SUBSYSTEMS TO INTEGRATE COMMON SPACECRAFT RESOURCES. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY DEVELOPING A REALISTIC SET OF DESIGN DATA CHARACTERIZING THE POTENTIAL USE OF METAL HYDRIDE SYSTEMS IN SPACE. THIS DATA WILL BE GENERATED BY AN APPROACH WHICH WILL IDENTIFY AND CATALOGUE THE THERMAL SYSTEMS AND EQUIPM ...

  9. CAPURE AND RELIQUEFACTIOIN OF HYDROGEN BOILOFF AT SHUTTLE LAUNCH SITE

    SBC: Hydrogen Consultants Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE LIQUID HYDROGEN FUEL USED FOR THE SPACE SHUTTLE AT KENNEDY SPACE CENTER IS EXPEECTED TO GROW FROM A CURRENT ANNUAL RATE OF APPROXIMATELY 5 MILION GALLONS TO 10 MILLION GALLONS IN THE LATE 1980'S. ABOUT ONE THIRD OF THIS VOLUME LIQUID HYDROGEN IS LOST FORM STEADY STAT , AND PERIODIC SOURCES SUCH AS PRE-COOLING, LOADING AND UNLOADING OPERATIONS. IT IS THE INTENT OF THIS PROPOSAL TO ILLUSTRATE HO ...

  10. METAL HYDRIDE THERMAL MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES FOR FUTURE SPACECRAFT AND PLANETARY BASES

    SBC: Hydrogen Consultants Inc            Topic: N/A

    METAL HYDRIDES ARE UNIQUELY CONTROLLABLE PHASE-CHANGE MATERIALS WITH THE POTENTIAL TO CONTROL AND USE HEAT IN FUTURE SPACE THERMAL ENERGY CONTROL SYSTEMS. HYDRIDES MANIPULATE HEAT WHILE CHEMICALLY ABSORBING AND DESORBING HYDROGEN OVER A BROAD RANGE OF TEMPERATURES. THE PHASE-CHANGES ARE CONTROLLABLE BY VALVING THE THE FLOW OF HYDROGEN, FROM ONE HYDRIDE TO ANOTHER, REGARDLESS OF TEMPERATURE. THE UN ...
