  1. Green Monopropellant Thruster TRL Maturation Scaling Effort

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs) have great potential for high-energy lasers. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance, and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The ...

  2. Integrated Computational Material Engineering Technologies for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: T12

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a novel process of fabricating components in a layer-by-layer method under the control of computer-aided design (CAD) information rather than by the traditional casting methods. The transition of AM technology from production of prototypes to production of critical parts is hindered by a lack of confidence in the quality of the part. In the push to commercialize the ...

  3. Volume Sensor for Flexible Fluid Reservoirs in Microgravity

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: T6

    The Advanced Space Suit carries consumable cooling water maintained at ambient pressure within a soft-walled, flexible reservoir. To ensure uninterrupted thermal control it is critical to monitor the volume of water remaining, but no known sensor is suitable for this task. Existing measurement techniques are unacceptably sensitive to the motion and varying geometry of the reservoir in microgravity ...

  4. Type-II Superlattice Based Low Dark Current Short-Wavelength Infrared Photodetectors With Optical Response From 0.4 to 2.5um

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: S1

    In recent years, Type-II superlattices have experienced significant development. However, the full potential of Type-II superlattice has not been fully explored and alternate superlattice architectures hold great promise. Despite demonstration of SWIR photodetectors based on this material system, there has been no report about Type-II superlattice-based photodetectors that have been sensitive to v ...

  5. Low Cost Cryocooler Control Electronics for Small Space Platforms

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S1

    Many of NASA’s future space science missions will utilize small spacecraft, and many of these missions will require cryocoolers for cooling detectors, sensors, shields, and telescopes.  For Class C and D missions, the cryocooler technical requirements for performance, size, and mass, coupled with the programmatic requirements for minimal cost and development time, are extremely challeng ...

  6. CUA OpenMP Nonlinear Optimization Tool

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: H9

    Nonlinear programming (NLP) allows for the solution of complex engineering problems, however, none of the currently available solvers fully capitalize on parallel computing. Many NASA trajectory design packages (OTIS, EMTG, MALTO) have already had their own code streamlined, and it is now the serial execution of existing NLP solvers that represents the largest bottleneck. It is the goal of this Ph ...

  7. A Two-Phase Pumped Loop Evaporator with Adaptive Flow Distribution for Large Area Cooling

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S3

    NASA’s future remote sensing science missions require advanced thermal management technologies to maintain multiple instruments at very stable temperatures and utilize waste heat to keep other critical subsystems above minimum operational temperatures. Two-phase pumped loops are an ideal solution for these applications. A critical need for these pumped loops is a microgravity-compatible evap ...

  8. Reversible Adhesion Concept for In-Space Assembly

    SBC: ATSP Innovations, Inc.            Topic: Z4

    ATSP Innovations will develop a reversible adhesion concept for use in reconfigurable space frame construction. This reversible adhesion concept is based on application of aromatic thermosetting copolyester (ATSP) to selected adhesive contact points. By virtue of a class of reversible solid-state chemical reactions (called interchain transesterification reactions - ITR) intrinsic to the polymer, A ...

  9. VLWIR Sensors for Detecting and Tracking Near-Earth Asteroids

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S1

    An important NASA mission is to detect, count and track near-earth asteroids for a variety of reasons including the hazards of collisions with our planet. Such asteroids are mostly dark, small and cold (~ 200K); so they are best detected in the very longwave infrared (VLWIR) wavelengths greater than ~ 12 microns where they glow brightest. To accomplish this, we developed in Phase I a record-perfor ...

  10. Open-Source Pipeline for Large-Scale Data Processing, Analysis and Collaboration

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S5

    NASA's observational products generate petabytes of scientific data, which are highly underutilized due to computational requirements; disjoint data access protocols; and task-specific, non‑reusable code development. Our overall objective is to accelerate NASA science through development of an open-source, Python-based Pipeline for Observational Data Processing, Analysis, and Collaborati ...
