  1. Coordination of Heterogeneous Robot Swarms for Planetary Logistics Operations

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T4

    Swarm robotics is one of the key enabling technologies for significantly extending mankind's reach beyond the Earth's surface. However, when bringing theory to practice, challenging problems related to the coordination and control of these swarms quickly arise. Vecna Robotics proposes a collaboration with MIT to extend existing autonomy behaviors and test platforms to address a class of pl ...

  3. A Supported Liquid Membrane System for Steady State CO2 Control in a Spacecraft Cabin

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: T6

    Reducing the allowable concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in spacecraft is a critical need for NASA.  The system now used on the International Space Station (ISS) is the carbon dioxide removal assembly (CDRA).  While it has performed well on the ISS, managers have concluded that using the device to reach the new ppCO2 limit of 2.0 mm Hg is not practical and a new method is needed.In t ...

  4. Aeroservoelastic Multifidelity Design of Biomimetic Aircraft (AMuBA)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: T15

    NASA has been investigating morphing aircraft for multi-mission capabilities and performance improvements in existing fixed-wing aircraft. In addition, the design of aeroelastic aircraft that can control the structural flexibility to their advantage, is an open area of research and development. In spite of the plethora of work on morphing aircraft and long slender wings, the goal of fielding such ...

  5. Validated Engineering Tools for Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Opterus Research and Development, Inc. proposes to develop and validate multi-scale thin-ply High Strain Composites (HSCs) constitutive modeling tools for incorporation into commercial finite element analysis codes. The constitutive models will capture the time-temperature-load-deformation viscoelastic characteristics common to HSCs as well as the yielding or permanent deformation associ ...

  6. DSM Autonomy System

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: T11

    Increasing the level of spacecraft autonomy for any future space mission will make it more affordable and capable, allowing NASA to do more science with less operations costs. For future Distributed Space Missions (DSMs) however, spacecraft autonomy is critical to reducing costs to make the missions affordable and practical. The use of multiple satellites to simultaneously sample science observati ...

  8. Launch Weather Decision Support System

    SBC: Radiometrics Corporation            Topic: T1

    NASA wants a cost-effective atmospheric remote sensing system providing accurate temperature and humidity profiles to least 10 km height in clear and cloudy conditions. Radiometrics Microwave Profiler (MP) products currently provide accurate temperature and humidity profiles in good agreement with radiosondes to 3 km height. Good agreement can be extended beyond 10 km height using variational retr ...
