  1. Intelligent Radiative Materials

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: T1002

    An opportunity to boost energy efficiency in homes and buildings exists through the design of functional radiative properties in glass and other building materials. Current surface materials ignore or take first-order approaches to complicated spectral behavior, leading to sub-optimal properties. The sensitivity of material properties to microscale surface structuring creates a design challenge ...

  2. Energy Efficient LED Spectrally Matched Smart Lighting

    SBC: INNOVATIVE IMAGING & RESEARCH CORP            Topic: T1002

    Innovative Imaging and Research has teamed with the University of Southern Mississippi to develop a novel energy efficient smart light system. Smart lighting adds an occupancy sensor, photosensor, controller, and dimming unit to a light source and has been shown to save up to 50% of the energy required to power traditional lighting in existing buildings and up to 35% in new construction. Our novel ...

  3. Simulation Environment for Power Management and Distribution Development

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: S305

    The overall objective of this research project is to investigate an autonomous and online control structure for finite-inertia power systems (dc and ac) with a real-time system simulation embedded within the control. The dual use aspect of this research will be demonstrated by focusing simultaneously on model development for both spacecraft power systems and terrestrial micro-grids. Both of these ...

  4. A Novel Flow Measurement System for Cryogenic Two-Phase Flow

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: X1001

    Flow rate measurements for cryogenic propellants are required for spacecraft and space exploration systems. Such a requirement has been hampered by lack of fast and accurate instruments among existing technologies. This proposed project will develop a mass flow measurement system for non-conducting cryogenic propellant flow to meet the NASA's need. In the proposed system, an electromagneti ...

  5. Fault Management Assistant (FMA)

    SBC: S&K Aerospace            Topic: S605

    S & K Aerospace (SKA) proposes to develop the Fault Management Assistant (FMA) to aid project managers and fault management engineers in developing better and more cost-effective fault management (FM) for new systems. The Phase I effort involves establishing an FM approach and architecture and designing a tool that supports them. It will also include a feasibility prototype of the tool. The ...

  6. Remotely Controlled Mixers for LMM Colloid Samples

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O302

    Designation of the International Space Station (ISS) as a National Laboratory creates exciting opportunities for a broad spectrum of researchers to take advantage of ISS's unique space attributes and scientific research facilities. The Light Microscopy Module (LMM), which was developed and is being managed by the NASA Glen Research Center (GRC), is currently operating on the ISS and has suppo ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
