  1. Structural Nervous System

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: T1201

    GTL?s SNS technology aids in the operation of new or existing structural health monitoring (SHM) systems by integrating data and power pathways into the structure. The use of this technology within a composite structure would allow engineers to place sensors from an SHM system directly where they are needed on a structure with instant power. GTL?s SNS technology offers the potential for developers ...

  4. Integrated Optical Transmitter for Space Based Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: T802

    The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement an integrated optical transmitter for RZ-DPSK modulation for integration into modems for the international space station (ISS). Conventional optical transmitters are based on commercially available discrete components. These have several fiber interconnects which leads to increased optical loss, reduced reliability in a space e ...

  6. Robotic Tool for Asteroid Resource Prospecting and Characterization

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: T402

    Optical fibers are inherently tolerant of cosmic radiation and a wide temperature range, immune to electromagnetic noise and thus solar flares, etc. Embedded fiber sensors can be highly resistant to shock and vibration, hence their usage in the oil drilling industry. IFOS will work with Stanford?s Center for Design Research to develop a robotic prospecting tool with fiber-optic based haptic sensi ...

  7. Modular Embedded Intelligent Sensor Network

    SBC: Angstrom Designs, Inc.            Topic: T1301

    Remote sensing, when combined with real-time processing, provides instant feedback on safety, mission success and system health. Being able to combine embedded sensing with distributed networks gives us the additional potential to further benefit many systems and sub-systems in the aerospace industry including launch vehicles, ground test equipment and spacecraft. These remote distributed sensor ...

  8. Low Mass/Power Sensor Suite for Spacesuits

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: T601

    To provide additional telemetry and data for long-term mission, the composition of internal atmosphere of spacesuits must be determined. Specifically, the unambiguous detection and quantification of carbon dioxide is crucial for mission completion. Detection of other gasses (ammonia, oxygen) is also necessary for a complete sensor suite. Seacoast Science and Case Western Reserve University pro ...

  9. Sensitivity Analysis for Design Optimization Integrated Software Tools

    SBC: Linked, Inc.            Topic: T401

    The objective of this proposed project is to provide a new set of sensitivity analysis theory and codes, the Sensitivity Analysis for Design Optimization Integrated Software Tool set, to work within the existing NASA O3 Tool. In this Phase I effort, the sensitivity approach will be implemented for two basic types of analysis, namely static systems of equations (linear and non-linear) and eigen-pro ...

  10. An Additive Manufacturing Technique for the Production of Electronic Circuits

    SBC: MORNINGBIRD MEDIA CORPORATION            Topic: T1204

    The proposed 9-month research project aims for the development of additive manufacturing techniques for the creation of electronic devices. It will develop an innovative additive manufacturing technique that combines the ink-based printing with laser melting technology to directly print a three-dimensional (3D) system with built-in electrical properties and functioning as an electronic device. Th ...
