  2. Interactive Administrator Dashboard for Improving School-Wide Behavior Supports

    SBC: Liveschool Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    In prior research and development, the project team developed LiveSchool, an online platform to track student behavior. With this Phase I funding, the team will develop and test a prototype of an administrator dashboard. The dashboard will generate reports on individual student behavior patterns across classes and on the prevalence of behavioral issues across different teachers. The dashboard will ...

  3. An Affordable Autonomous Hydrogen Flame Detection System for Rocket Propulsion

    SBC: INNOVATIVE IMAGING & RESEARCH CORP            Topic: H1001

    NASA has long used liquid hydrogen as a fuel and plans to continue using it in association with their advanced nuclear thermal propulsion technology. Hydrogen fire detection is critical for rocket propulsion safety and maintenance. A significant fire at a rocket test or launch facility could be catastrophic to infrastructure or even worse, to human life. Detection monitoring is problematic as hydr ...

  6. Metal Advanced Manufacturing Bot-Assisted Assembly (MAMBA) Process

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H702

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop the Metal Advanced Manufacturing Bot-Assisted Assembly (MAMBA) Process, a robotically managed metal press and milling system used to create precision parts on orbit. This manufacturing process provides an alternative to 3D printing metals in space, which is difficult due to space environment or print quality issues. Instead, the MAMBA-Process rel ...

  7. The Automated X-Link for Orbital Networking (AXON) Connector

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: Z401

    NASA has identified the need for a joining technologies to support the ability to connect spacecraft components autonomously in-space. The joining technology should be modular, reversible, have an open-architecture, and allow "plug-and-play" functionality for maximum flexibility and utilize simple approaches amenable to robotic assembly and disassembly. TUI has been working on structural truss joi ...

  8. Portable Spectroscopic Scanning Electron Microscope on ISS: In-Situ Nanostructural/Chemical Analysis for Critical Vehicle Systems

    SBC: Mochii, Inc            Topic: H801

    We will construct a novel field-portable miniature analytical electron microscope (EM+EDS) called Mochii "S" for in situ sensing in harsh/remote environments such as orbital and deep space flight. This lightweight, ISS-ready nano-analyzer will provide direct observation and chemical identification of the fine structure and correlated function of materials, contaminants, and biological agents down ...

  9. Composite Repair System

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: T1202

    GTL has developed an innovative composite repair methodology known as the Composite Repair System (CRS). In this phase I effort, CRS is being developed for the repair of damaged induced in thin-laminate composite cryotanks. In applying CRS to damaged composite structures, the required level of structural capacity is recovered to within a predetermined percentage of its original performance after ...
