  2. Electromagnetic Models and Software for the Nondestructive Evaluation of Carbon Nanotube Based Composites

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: H1301

    The use of eddy-current methods to detect damage in aerospace structures,and to characterize materials is well established, and is a key item to ensure that the risk of structural failures meets the strict damage tolerance requirements established by NASA. This is especially challenging when one considers that common aerospace structures are made from such disparage materials as aluminum, titanium ...

  3. Lunar Spectral Irradiance Monitor

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S103

    During this effort an instrument for calibrating the lunar irradiance will be designed. Such an instrument will lead to reliable exoatmospheric calibration for past, current, and future earth-viewing instruments and improve the accuracy of their data products, which in turn will improve climate change and weather models. The instrument will measure both the solar and lunar irradiances, which will ...

  4. Sintered Inductive Metal Printer with Laser Exposure

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: H1401

    The proposed innovation is a 3D metal printer, which offers the unique ability to fabricate metal components and tools in space. The proposed system will accomplish this task through the utilization of a two-stage filament melting process whereby a metallic filament is first heated to Curie temperature through induction and then deposited on a build platform where it is fused to the previous layer ...

  5. Diamond_Copper Materials Based Solution for Improved Engine Performance

    SBC: Global Technology Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: H201

    A Narloy-Z-diamond particulate composite providing increased thermal conductivity and light weight will be developed for use in liners for liquid rocket engine thrust chamber designs at similar cost to NarloyZ. Shortcomings of previous copper-diamond products have been poor resistance to thermal cycling and high cost. In the current work, attention will be given to developing a strong, chemically ...

  6. cFS-Based Autonomous Requirements Testing Tool

    SBC: S & K Global Solutions, LLC.            Topic: H602

    The S&K Team proposes design of a tool suite, Autonomy Requirements Tester (ART), to address the difficulty of stating autonomous requirements and the links to clear testing plans. ART will represent autonomy requirements, test plans, and test results, and the relationships among them so that it is less difficult to state autonomy requirements clearly, to communicate test plans clearly among the f ...

  7. High Power, Thermally Optimized Blue Laser for Lidar

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S101

    To enable widespread and rapid airborne bathymetric lidar to adequate depths in many ocean regions a low-cost, rugged, and high energy pulsed laser source must be developed in the ocean water transmittance spectrum of 450 - 490 nm. The ideal laser source will be high performance for lidar (high pulse energy, high rep rate, short pulse duration) with specific targeted emission spectrum to meet ocea ...

  8. Space-Hardened Seed Laser for Use in High Spectral Resolution Lidar Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort to develop a fully packaged, environmentally hardened wavelength-locked seed laser for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for future space-based, high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) measurements. In addition to establishing that a diode-based, wavelength-locked, seed laser can provide the spectral purity required for HSRL systems, ...

  9. Fault Management Simulation and Visualization Tool

    SBC: S & K Global Solutions, LLC.            Topic: S505

    S&K proposes to design a tool, Fault Management (FM) Viewer, with multiple visualization models (viewers) to assist with planning FM development by providing new ways of visualizing FM concepts and data. State of the art tools to assist FM development include fault trees, success trees, and general Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) tools using SysML. S&K will structure the FM viewer to align w ...

  10. Hybrid Modeling Capability for Aircraft Electrical Propulsion Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: T1501

    PC Krause and Associates is partnering with Purdue University, EleQuant, and GridQuant to create a hybrid modeling capability. The combination of PCKA?s extensive dynamic modeling experience, Purdue?s work in electromechanical systems analysis, and GridQuant and Elequant?s development of the HELM algorithm uniquely positions the team to create this technology. HELM is a novel algorithm that solves ...
