  1. Tools and Materials for Hands-On Climate and Weather Science Education

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The majority of students and educators would probably agree that students are better able to grasp scientific concepts from the use of hands-on activities and other inquiry-based educational practices than from typical lecture problem solving methods. Anasphere, Inc is working to make inquiry based tools and materials for weather and climate education more readily available for students and educat ...

  2. SoundCompass- A Wearable Sound Direction and Motion Detector for People who are Hard of Hearing


    This project researches, develops, and demonstrates the technical merit and feasibility of awearable device which (1) detects the direction of a sound source or motion, and (2) alerts the user viavibration, images, and captions to the direction of this sound source or movement relative to the currentposition of the individual. This provides the user with a sense of independence and personal safety ...

  3. Compact Fluidic Actuator Arrays For Flow Control

    SBC: ADVANCED FLUIDICS, LLC            Topic: A205

    The overall objective of the proposed research is to design, develop and demonstrate fluidic actuator arrays for aerodynamic separation control and drag reduction. These actuators are based on a compact design of low mass-flow fluidic oscillators that produce high frequency (1-5 kHz) oscillating or pulsing jets. Our preliminary experiments on separation control over trailing edge flaps, cavity to ...

  4. Passive Wireless SAW Humidity Sensors

    SBC: SENSANNA INCORPORATED            Topic: T601

    This proposal describes the preliminary development of passive wireless surface acoustic wave (SAW) based humidity sensors for NASA application to distributed humidity monitoring systems. SAW devices are a platform technology for passive wireless sensing of numerous possible measurands. SAW devices have been demonstrated as passive wireless temperature sensors in NASA contracts NNK04OA28C and NN ...

  5. Avionics for Scaled Remotely Operated Vehicles

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: A109

    The use of UAVs has increased exponentially since 1995, and this growth is expected to continue. Many of these applications require extensive Research and Development; however, the need to fund development of the UAV often competes with funding intended for the end-user application. Therefore, off the shelf, low cost, easily configurable integrated avionics systems will significantly reduce the bu ...

  6. H/OZ: PFD and Collaborative Flight Control System

    SBC: Emerald Sky Technologies, LLC            Topic: A102

    With aircraft automation increasingly able to control flight autonomously, situational awareness and engagement of the crew can suffer. To improve aviation safety further we need new paradigms to balance between exploiting increasingly powerful technologies and retaining and promoting aeronautical decision making (ADM) by the crew. This proposal explores integrating H-mode, a flight control syste ...

  7. Ground Enterprise Management System


    Spacecraft ground systems are on the cusp of achieving "plug-and-play" capability, i.e., they are approaching the state in which the various components can be quickly integrated with near-automatic interoperability. When properly architected, such systems offer advantages over their traditional counterparts, such as improved upgradeability and extensibility. They can also be more easily automat ...

  8. Reconfigurable L-band Radar Transceiver using Digital Signal Synthesis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: S102

    IAI proposes to develop a reconfigurable L-band radar transceiver module. The emphasis will be to implement most of critical radar functionalities like: • Baseband modulation signals • Orthogonal high frequency pseudo random codes for pulse compression • Direct Digital synthesis (DDS) or numerically controlled oscillators (NCO) for generating RF carrier reference signal • DDS driven Frequen ...

  9. A Simulation Testbed for Dynamic Air Corridors within the Next Generation Air Transportation System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A302

    The key innovation in this effort is the development of a simulation testbed for identifying dynamic air corridors that can increase aircraft throughput in and around the terminal airspace. In this proposal, an air corridor is a three-dimensional region of space that is intended to safely isolate a stream of aircraft from other aircraft outside the corridor. Air corridors/routes effectively exis ...

  10. Efficient Radiation Simulation in Complex Geometries with Applications to Planetary Entry

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A206

    NASA aerocapture missions require an accurate evaluation of radiative thermal transport in order to simulate the aerothermal environment around space vehicles. However, present day computation of radiative transport in this complex multi-dimensional environment is frequently done using simple one-dimensional tangent-slab approximations or optically-thick approximations which compromise the accura ...
