  1. Efficient cFS-based On-board Lamberts Solution for DSMs

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: T11

    Distributed Spacecraft Missions (DSM) architectures provide unique scientific and programmatic benefits including multipoint in-situ measurements, multi-angle viewpoints, and improved understanding of the connections between separately measured phenomena and their time variations. However, these missions impose significant operational demands on ground tracking resources and mission operators alik ...

  3. A Supported Liquid Membrane System for Steady State CO2 Control in a Spacecraft Cabin

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: T6

    Reducing the allowable concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in spacecraft is a critical need for NASA.  The system now used on the International Space Station (ISS) is the carbon dioxide removal assembly (CDRA).  While it has performed well on the ISS, managers have concluded that using the device to reach the new ppCO2 limit of 2.0 mm Hg is not practical and a new method is needed.In t ...

  4. Femtosecond-Laser Fabrication of Waveguides in Laser Materials

    SBC: AKTIWAVE LLC            Topic: T8

    This proposal includes, for the first time, integrated theoretical models and experimental investigations to simulate and demonstrate femtosecond-laser-fabricated waveguides in crystalline dielectric materials. The numerical models will predict refractive-index changes potentially induced by self-focusing, heat accumulation, thermal stress, plasma formation and relaxation, and ablation. The influe ...

  5. 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 associ ...

  7. Launch Weather Decision Support System

    SBC: Radiometrics Corporation            Topic: T1

    NASA wants a cost-effective atmospheric remote sensing system providing accurate temperature and humidity profiles to least 10 km height in clear and cloudy conditions. Radiometrics Microwave Profiler (MP) products currently provide accurate temperature and humidity profiles in good agreement with radiosondes to 3 km height. Good agreement can be extended beyond 10 km height using variational retr ...

  8. uG-LilyPond- Floating Plant Pond for Microgravity

    SBC: Space Lab Technologies, LLC            Topic: T7

    Regenerative space life support will undoubtedly require food production, to recover nutrients and close the carbon loop in a spacecraft habitat.  Aquatic plants have enormous potential for edible biomass production but have been little studied as potential food crops for space applications.  The proposed μG-LilyPond™ is an autonomous environmentally controlled floating plant cu ...

  9. Engineering and Qualification of Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: T12

    This body of research focuses on developing fundamental engineering qualification methods for Thin-Ply High Strain Composites (TP-HSCs). Roccor will collaborate with NASA and Dr. Kwok of the University of Central Florida to develop and validate a robust framework for engineering the viscoelastic behavior of highly strained thin-ply composites. The material systems studied will be highly focused on ...
