  4. Instrument for Measurement of Oceanic Particle Size Distribution from Submicron to Mesoplankton

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: S108

    Particle size distribution (PSD) is a fundamental environmental measurement, with diverse biogeochemical applications including carbon cycle science, ecosystem and fisheries modeling, and harmful algal bloom (HAB) detection/prediction. There is optimism that estimates of PSD will be available from ocean color measurements (such as NASA's upcoming PACE mission), and will be able to help constrain g ...

  5. Phased Array Technique for Low Signal-To-Noise Ratio Wind Tunnels

    SBC: OPTINAV INC            Topic: A302

    Noise measurement of aerospace vehicles is difficult and usually requires expensive, specialized facilities. With the proliferation of UAVs there is need for noise data, both for ISR and non-military vehicles. Wind tunnel testing is common and much less expensive. The innovation is a novel in-flow microphone array combined with the start of the art Functional Beamforming algorithm that makes it p ...

  6. Cavitation Peening of Aerospace Bearings

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A307

    High-value bearings are a critical part of the safety, reliability, cost and performance of modern aircraft. A typical passenger jet will have 100 to 175 high-valve bearings costing from $2,500 to $50,000 each for a total aircraft cost of $300,000 to $600,000. All gas turbine engine bearings are inspected at overhaul and typically 30-40% of there are rejected. For each engine overhaul, bearing re ...

  7. The Compact Hyperspectral Aberration-Corrected Platform (CHAP), an Instrument for Microspacecraft.

    SBC: Planetary Resources Development Corporation            Topic: S106

    In-situ analysis of solar system bodies plays a crucial role in understanding the evolution of our planet, setting the stage for life's origins. As has been demonstrated by several NASA interplanetary missions, there is no replacement for in-situ observations, like spectral imaging, that prove critical for understanding the context of solar system bodies. There is, however, a conflict between more ...

  8. Integrated Propulsion and Primary Structure Module for Small Satellite and CubeSat Applications

    SBC: Planetary Resources Development Corporation            Topic: S302

    Over the last decade, the CubeSat platform has emerged as a viable alternative for both innovative technology development and scientific investigation. However, to fully realize the platform's potential, propulsion capability is required. For low-cost spacecraft developers, this capability remains among the most resource intensive to successfully implement. Planetary Resources Development Corporat ...

  9. Miniaturized Lightweight Monopropellant Feed System for Nano- and Micro-satellites

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S302

    There is a need for viable and practical solutions for utilizing chemical thrusters operating with green monopropellants on small- and micro-satellites and cubesats (100 kg-500 kg and less than 100 kg). Conventional approaches scale down poorly, due to the size, mass, and power requirements of components needed for high pressure propellant storage and flow control. For small spacecraft already f ...
