  1. Transient Acoustic Environment Prediction Tool for Launch Vehicles in Motion during Early Lift-Off

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Launch vehicles experience extreme acoustic loads dominated by rocket exhaust plume interactions with ground structures during lift-off, which can produce damaging vibro-acoustic loads on the vehicle and payloads if not properly understood and mitigated against. Existing capabilities for modeling the turbulent plume physics during early lift-off are too dissipative to accurately resolve the propag ...

  2. Multiphase Modeling of Solid Rocket Motor Internal Environment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Solid rocket motor (SRM) design requires thorough understanding of the slag accumulation process in order to: predict thrust continuity, optimize propellant conversion efficiency, predict coning effects from sloshing, and assess potential orbital debris (slag) hazard. Current state-of-the-art models for SRM environment do not have the capability to simulate the accumulation and dynamics of slag in ...

  3. Composite Repair System

    SBC: Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories Inc.            Topic: T1202

    GTL has developed an innovative composite repair methodology known as the Composite Repair System (CRS). In this phase I effort, CRS is being developed for the repair of damaged induced in thin-laminate composite cryotanks. In applying CRS to damaged composite structures, the required level of structural capacity is recovered to within a predetermined percentage of its original performance after ...

  4. Prediction and Control of Selective Laser Melting Product Microstructure

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T1204

    Despite the rapid commercialization of additive manufacturing technology such as selective laser melting, SLM, there are gaps in models for material microstructure and property prediction that slow qualification and certification. Improvements in coupling microstructure prediction models to local process conditions, validation, and control of material microstructure are required to mature the stat ...

  5. Waste Heat Recovery by Thermo-Radiative Cell for Space Applications

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T301

    In response to the NASA STTR solicitation topic T3.01, "Energy Harvesting, Transformation and Multifunctional Power Dissemination", Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) propose to develop a thermo-radiative cell to harvest energy from waste heat, for example, from radiators. Currently NASA's Top Technical Challenge is the need to "increase available power" ...

  6. Evidence Meshes for Three-Dimensional Modeling, Visualization, and Navigation

    SBC: Mesh Robotics, LLC            Topic: T401

    As robots are tasked with ever more complex missions, they demand more sophisticated models of the environments in which they must work. Rough-terrain mobility, site surveying, and dexterous manipulation all demand a fully 3D map of the world that simultaneously exhibits large scale and high resolution, a situation we refer to as scale disparity. Most robots discretize the world into a uniform-gri ...

  7. Regolith to Steel Powder, Oxygen & Water with Small Equipment

    SBC: Olsen, Rolf M            Topic: T402

    This proposal covers processing of raw Martian regolith to both an enriched iron ore and liberated water, and also iron ore reduction and oxygen production, metal purification and steel powder making. Our proposal uses heat re-cycling to improve the energy efficiency of both regolith-to-ore enrichment and iron ore reduction. This heat re-cycling creates a bonus, the liberation of water (formerly b ...

  8. Unified In-Space Propulsion Framework for Prediction of Plume-Induced Spacecraft Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Chemical contamination of spacecraft components as well as thermal and force loading from firing liquid propellant thrusters are critical concerns for in-space propulsion applications. Gas molecular contamination and liquid droplet deposition due to incomplete combustion threaten to damage surface materials, sensitive instruments and optical sensors, and poses major risks for mission success. Liqu ...

  9. Active Radiation Shield

    SBC: Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories Inc.            Topic: T301

    In the Phase I effort, Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories LLC (GTL) verified the feasibility of generating power from space particle radiation. This effort successfully demonstrated electrical power production from a particle radiation source using an initial proof-of-concept device. The effort also identified a second approach that has the potential for even better power generation and offers enhanced ...

  10. Host-Targeted Antiviral Drugs Providing Rapid, Scalable, Stable, Broad-Spectrum MedicalCountermeasure Against Marburg Virus

    SBC: Evrys Bio, LLC            Topic: CBD18A002

    In a pandemic or exposure to weaponized Marburg virus the morbidity, mortality and social unrest that will ensue before vaccines orMilitary operating on foreign soil as well as to the population of the US Homeland. Practically all threat agents of biological origin (except forcertain non-proteinaceous toxins, typically produced by marine organisms and fungi) have their structure and vital function ...
