  1. Automatic Video-based Motion Analysis

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1501

    Understanding task performance and crew behavioral health is crucial to mission success and to the optimal design, development, and operation of next-generation spacecraft. Onboard resources, like a conventional 2D video camera, can capture crew motion and interaction; however, there is a critical need for a software tool that achieves unobtrusive, non-invasive, automatic analysis of crew activity ...

  2. UAS Demand Generation and Airspace Performance Impact Prediction

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A501

    The key innovation of this effort is the development of future traffic demand for Uninhabited Aerial Systems (UAS) given the various missions they intend to fly, and thereafter populating a data warehouse with these projected flights that can be marketed to the aviation community. We propose developing one flight demand set for each of twenty-five future years from the 2015 through 2040, incorpor ...

  3. Cloud-Based Analytics, Store and Query System (CASQUE) for Data-Intensive Scientific Processing

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: S503

    While it has become apparent that we can and will collect data at unprecedented rates thanks to a wide range of high-resolution high-throughput sensors, it has also become apparent that we do not have the algorithms and tools to satisfactorily analyze Big Data. Cloud computing as an infrastructure (e.g., Amazon Web Services), as a platform (e.g., Google Apps), and as a software ecosystem (e.g., Ha ...

  4. A Flexible Fault Management Architecture for Cluster Flight


    Emergent Space Technologies proposes to develop a flexible, service-oriented Fault Management (FM) architecture for cluster fight missions. This FM architecture will include algorithms to be run on each cluster module for fault detection, isolation, and recovery, software to be used at a ground station to direct recovery actions, and protocols for communication of fault information between cluster ...

  5. A Turbo-Brayton Cryocooler for Aircraft Superconducting Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A201

    Hybrid turboelectric aircraft with gas turbines driving electric generators connected to electric propulsion motors have the potential to transform the aircraft design space by decoupling power generation from propulsion. Resulting aircraft designs such as blended-wing bodies with distributed propulsion can provide the large reductions in emissions, fuel burn, and noise required to make air trans ...

  6. A High Performance System With Explicit Incorporation of ATC Regulations to Generate Contingency Plans for UAVs with Lost Communication

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: A201

    We propose a comprehensive and systematic contingency plan generation framework to deal with lost communication in UAVs. ATC regulations are explicitly incorporated into our system. Our proposed framework was motivated by our recent work for the Naval Air Station at Patuxent River. In should be noted that our earlier framework was very general, as we have designed a system which can deal with many ...

  7. A Novel Plasma-Based Compressor Stall Control System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A308

    Modern aircraft gas turbine engines utilize highly loaded airfoils in both the compressor and turbine to maximize performance while minimizing weight, cost, and complexity. However, high airfoil loading increases the likelihood of flow separation at lower mass flow rates. Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) plasma actuators have been shown to be a very promising technique for compressor stall con ...

  8. A Reliable, Efficient Cryogenic Propellant Mixing Pump with No Moving Parts

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H201

    Refueling spacecraft in space offers tremendous benefits for increased spacecraft payload capacity and reduced launch cost. A key technology challenge for space refueling is the storage of liquid cryogenic fuel in space. To meet this need, we propose to develop a reliable, compact, efficient cryogenic mixing pump with no moving parts. The mixing pump will prevent thermal stratification of the c ...

  9. Turbo-Brayton Power Converter for Spaceflight Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H803

    Future NASA space missions require advanced systems to convert thermal energy into electric power. These systems must be reliable, efficient, and lightweight. In response, we propose to develop a turbo-Brayton power converter with high efficiency and specific power. The converter will use gas bearings to provide reliable, maintenance-free, long-life operation. It will also consist of discrete ...

  10. A Novel Hemispherical and Dynamic Camera for EVAs

    SBC: XIGEN, LLC            Topic: X403

    This SBIR project is to develop a novel Hemispherical and Dynamic Camera(HDC) with ultra-wide field of view and low geometric distortion. The novel technology we proposed would lead to ultra-compact, low-power, light weight, and high resolution hemispherical camera for EVAs. We successfully completed the Phase 1 project with a novel optical design, functional prototypes, extensive experimental r ...
