  1. Ceramic-Metal Interfaces by Functional Grading

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: A107

    Glacigen Materials proposes a novel technique for producing large-area sheets of functionally graded materials (FGM), which yield robust ceramic-metal interfaces capable of withstanding harsh environments that include high temperatures. Propulsion systems offer some of the harshest possible design conditions from a materials perspective and the demands placed on engineering materials will become m ...

  2. A Reconfigurable Transmitter and Receiver for Aeronautical Telemetry Applications

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: A201

    This project focuses on the development of a reconfigurable microwave transmitter and receiver for telemetry applications. Both the transmitter and receiver are able to operate at any frequency between the L and C Bands. The software defined transmitter is able to change its center frequency, output bandwidth and output power as well as operate with multiple simultaneous output frequencies. The fl ...

  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 ...

  8. Fast Electro-Optic Switch for Pulsed Space-Based Lidar Beam Steering

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    Lidar is a core technology in NASA's arsenal for science measurements from ground, air-borne and space based platforms. AdvR is proposing a beam steering mechanism for space-based Lidar based on AdvR's electro-optic deflector technology with no moving parts, making it favorable for space-based operation. The system operates on the principle of electro-optically controlled prisms engineered into a ...

  9. Electromagnetic Characterization of Advanced Composites by Voxel-Based Inverse Methods

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: Z1102

    The nondestructive characterization of advanced composites, such as carbon-fiber reinforced polymers (cfrp), by electromagnetic means is well established. What is needed to advance the state of the art are sophisticated inversion algorithms that allow layup and impact damage to be determined in localized regions, which means that more traditional methods of model-based inverse methods must be rep ...

  10. High-Capacity, High-Speed, Solid-State Hydrogen Gas Generator

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: Z703

    Deployable aerodynamic decelerators are an enabling technology for missions to planets and moons with atmospheres as well as for returning payloads to Earth. These decelerators require a gas source to inflate them, and the objective is to provide an improvement over existing pressurized cold gas inflation systems. A solid-state hydrogen gas generator is proposed which is based on the thermal ...
