    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. SUPERCRITICAL CRYOGENIC SELF CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS

    SBC: Aerospace Design & Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS (SCBA) CAN BE DESIGNED WHICH CAN USE LIQUID AIR FOR FILLING, OPERATE AT AMBIENT CONDITIONS OR UNDER WATER, BE ATTITUDE INDEPENDENT, AND CAN BE STORED WITH NO ENRICHMENT IN OXYGEN. BY USE OF THE PROPER DESIGN CRITERIA IT WILL MEET OSHA AND NISOH REQUIREMENTS. THE TECHNOLOGY REQUIRED TO MAKE THIS SCBA IS FAMILIAR TO THESPACE PROGRAM. THIS IS THE USE OF A SUPERCRI ...

  4. NON-INTRUSIVE BOUNDARY LAYER TRANSITION FREQUENCY DETECTOR

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NON-INTRUSIVE, BOUNDARY-LAYER TRANSITION DETECTOR THAT CANINDICATE THE PRESENCE OF LOCAL TRANSITION AND PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THE FREQUENCY COMPONENTS OF THE FLOW WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE DESIGN CONCEPT IS AN ADAPTATION OF A TRANSITION DETECTOR USED SUCCESSFULLY IN BALLISTIC-MISSILE REENTRY-VEHICLE FLIGHTS. THE WORK WILL DEMONSTRATE CONCEPT FEASIBILITY ON FLIGHT SKINS OF PRESENT INTEREST TO NASA. ...

  5. A HYBRID ANALYTICAL/INTELLIGENT APPROACH TO FAULT-TOLERANT CONTROL OF LARGE SPACE STRUCTURES

    SBC: Automation Concepts & Sys Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT COMBINES HYBRID CONTROL-THEORETIC TECHNIQUES AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AL) FOR THE DESIGN OF FAULT-TOLERANT CONTROL STRATEGIES FOR LARGE SPACE STRUCTURES. AVAILABLE AL-BASED OR PURELY CONTROL-THEORETIC TECHNIQUES FOR FAULT-TOLERANT CONTROL OFFER NO UNIFIED METHODOLOGY TO INTEGRATE THE DIVERSE ISSUES OF SYSTEM MODELING, FAULT DETECTION AND ISOLATION, FAULT PROPAGATION, SYSTEM RESTRU ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  6. GLOVE CONTROLLER WITH FORCE AND TACTILE FEEDBACK FOR DEXTEROUS ROBOTIC HANDS

    SBC: Begej Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE NEED TO CONTROL ROBOTIC HANDS IN SPACE APPLICATIONS REQUIRING THE REMOTE PERFORMANCE OF HIGHLY DEXTEROUS TASKS, E.G., EVA OR REMOTE EXPLORATION. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROGRAM WILL BE: (1) TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN INNOVATIVE MASTER GLOVE CONTROLLER THAT PROVIDES BOTH FORCE AND FINGERTIP TACTILE FEEDBACK TO THE OPERATOR; AND (2) TO DETERMINE THE EXTE ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. PARALLEL MULTILEVEL ADAPTIVE METHODS FOR FLOWS IN TRANSITION

    SBC: Colorado Research Development            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP AN ACCURATE AND HIGHLY EFFICIENT PARALLEL ALGORITHM BASED ON ASYNCHRONOUS, MULTILEVEL, ADAPTIVE METHODS FOR COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICPROBLEMS INVOLVING TRANSITION CAUSED BY CANONICAL ROUGHNESS ELEMENTS. BOUNDARY LAYER TRANSITION XTREMELY SENSITIVE TO THE PRESENCE AND NATURE OF ROUGHNESS ELEMENTS, BUT VERY LITTLE IS KNOWN EITHER EXPERIMENTALLY OR NUMERICA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A LIGHTNING ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY FOR NASA APPLICATION

    SBC: Electro Magnetic            Topic: N/A

    A FORMALIZED LIGHTNING-ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY WILL BE IMPLEMENTED IN SOFTWARE AS A SMART SYSTEM AND WILL BE TAILORED TO NASA SYSTEMS SUCH AS LAUNCH VEHICLES BEFORE LAUNCH, STORED ORDNANCE AND EXPLOSIVES, SATELLITES IN STORAGE OR TEST, AND COMPUTER SYSTEMS. A NOVEL DERIVATIVE OF THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL, FINITE DIFFERENCE SOLUTION METHOD OF MAXELL'S EQUATION, VECTOR 3DFD, WILL BE USED TO CALCULATE FIE ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. AN EXPERT SYSTEM INTERFACE FOR KNOWLEDGE-BASED IMAGE CLASSIFICATION AND GIS MODELING

    SBC: Erdas Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. COMPACT GAS TURBINE ENGINE WITH EFFECTIVE TURBINE BLADE COOLING

    SBC: Fluidtherm Engineering            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES AN INNOVATIVE COMPACT, CONFIGURATION OF THE GAS TURBINE ENGINE THAT HAS UNUSUALLY EFFECTIVE COOLING OF TURBINE BLADES. THIS COULD RESULT IN HIGHER TURBINE-INLET TEMPERATURES, POWER, AND EFFICIENCY THAN IS COMMON IN TURBINES. BECAUSE OF ITS INHERENTLY LOW PRESSURE RATIO, THE ENGINE WOULD BE SUITED TO, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SMALL SCALE APPLICATIONS. PHASE I WILL STUDY THE EFF ...
