  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

    SBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    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. 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 ...

  4. Data Mining for IVHM using Sparse Binary Ensembles

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: A105

    In response to NASA SBIR topic A1.05, "Data Mining for Integrated Vehicle Health Management", Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) asserts that our unique SPADE (Sparse Processing Applied to Data Exploitation) technology meets a significant fraction of the stated criteria and has functionality that enables it to handle many applications within the aircraft lifecycle. SPADE distills input data into ...

  5. 355nm Photon-Recycled Fringe Imager for HSRL

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: S101

    The proposed work is to develop a high-efficiency aircraft-qualified Fabry-Perot-based interferometer for the High Spectral Resolution LIDAR (HSRL). Through this Phase I effort, Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) will perform instrument simulations to optimize a photon-recycled fringe imaging receiver to meet the HSRL measurement requirements. Photon-recycled fringe imaging technology incorporat ...

  6. Utilizing High Fidelity Simulations in Multidisciplinary Optimization of Aircraft Systems

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: A209

    Aircraft design is a complex process requiring interactions and exchange of information among multiple disciplines such as aerodynamics, strength, fatigue, controls, propulsion, corrosion, maintenance, and manufacturing. A lot of attention has been paid during the past fifteen years in the Multi-disciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) nature of the aircraft design process. However, a consistent v ...

  7. Non Intrrusive, On-line, Simultaneous Multi-Species Impurity Monitor in Hydrogen

    SBC: Mississippi Ethanol, LLC            Topic: T901

    The purity of hydrogen fuel is important in engine testing at SSC. The hydrogen may become contaminated with nitrogen, argon, or oxygen. The hydrogen from the fuel tanks or feed lines is analyzed beforehand. Therefore, there is a need for a non-intrusive, on-line, near real-time monitor for H2. The analytical technique should measure various impurities (molecular and atomic) simultaneously and be ...

  8. Time Domain Terahertz Axial Computed Tomography Non Destructive Evaluation

    SBC: PICOMETRIX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to demonstrate key elements of feasibility for a high speed automated time domain terahertz computed axial tomography (TD-THz CT) non destructive evaluation (NDE) system which would provide true three dimensional images of aerospace composite structures. Traditional time domain terahertz reflection tomographic imaging captures only a single view of an object, generating images of lami ...

  9. OpenSAT, An Open Source Based Satellite Design Data Architecture with API Design and Management Plugins

    SBC: SCI_ZONE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Satellite design encompasses a multitude of steps from concept to flight. Mission specification to flight can take several years, depending on the scope, requirements and budget of the mission. The process also requires a wide range of design and management tools, with limited consistency data interchange capability, and a lack of coherency. Detailing the relationships between the satellite conf ...

  10. Improved High-Rejection Filters and MEMS-Enabled Smart Reconfigurable Antennas

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: T501

    Proposed work envisions development of high-rejection filters and smart reconfigurable antennas using MEMS switches. Adaptive feature of the proposed antenna provides higher S/N ratio and extends range for surface-to-surface communications. Tunable high-rejection filters lend themselves easily to software defined radios.
