  1. Smart Baseplate for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive manufacturing (AM) has rapidly evolved into a valuable technique for making parts which, at times, cannot be fabricated through conventional machining methods.One challenge in the area of AM is the lack of real-time feedback on the fabrication process and the quality of the part being made.This is especially critical given the relatively long periods of time that complex parts can require ...

  2. Multi-Function Fluid Measurement System using High-Definition Fiber Optic Sensing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T13

    Propulsion systems require rigorous and highly instrumented testing to enable a comprehensive analysis of performance and to minimize risks associated with space flight. Current testing instrumentation methods can be replaced with embedded sensor systems that are used for monitoring remote, hazardous, or inaccessible locations, while reducing cabling and power consumption. The additional informati ...

  4. Multiscale Design Tool and Process Development of Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: T12

    Use of thin ply composites offers good potential for significant mass savings for aerospace structures besides its improved resistance to micro-cracking, fatigue, and delamination. However, mass savings due to thin-ply technology depends on material and fabrication technology, vehicle configuration, structural design, loads etc. Structural integrity of components made from thin plies need to be c ...

  5. Regeneratively Cooled Ceramic Matrix Composite Nozzle Assembly for Reduced Weight

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T9

    All rocket missions benefit from having lower structural mass and higher specific impulse, both of which contribute to larger payload fractions and therefore lower mission cost. High temperature materials such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are an avenue to lower engine mass because of the low density and high specific strength of the material. They also have a high maximum temperature and so ...

  6. Wireless Networked Cryogenic and Minimum Pressure Sensors

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T13

    This NASA Phase I STTR program would develop high performance, wireless networked cryogenic and minimum pressure sensors for remote monitoring in propulsion systems, using SOI (Silicon on Insulator) NM (nanomembrane) techniques in combination with our pioneering ceramic nanocomposite materials. We will improve the current mechanical and electrical model of semiconductor nanomembrane based sensor ...

  7. Hydroponic Rego-rock Produced In-Space for Efficient and Healthy Crop Growth

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T7

    In support of NASA's goals for efficient plant growth in Space, NanoSonic offers an inert polymeric binding system to make use of Mars surface regolith as a safe, structural, growth media for passive hydroponically grown plants. Importantly, the proposed multi-functional binding agent will be combined with regolith to: 1) form a porous support structure with an optimal air-to-water ratio for ...

  8. Efficient Composite Repair Methods for Launch Vehicles

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T12

    Polymer matrix composites are increasingly replacing traditional metallic materials in NASA launch vehicles due to high strength to weight ratio, manipulative properties, and corrosion resistance. However, the inspection and repair methods for these materials are considerably more complicated. For aerospace platform repairs, a composite laminate patch must be manually fabricated on-site and then ...

  9. Autonomous Power Controller for Mission Critical Microgrids

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: T3

    PCKA is partnering with researchers at Purdue University to develop an Autonomous Power Controller (APC) for mission-critical microgrids to supply electric power in a highly autonomous and secure manner to accomplish mission objectives. The APC consists of a centralized controller connected to an array of local component controllers. The centralized controller will be capable of optimal generation ...

  10. Virus-Like Particle Based pan-Marburgvirus Vaccine

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: CBD18A002

    Marburg virus (MARV) is a filamentous enveloped non-segmented negative sense RNA virus. This viruse is considered to be extremelydangerous with case fatality rates as high as 88-90%. Extensive efforts have gone towards effective vaccines for MARV prevention, however,none have been successfully established as licensed vaccines. Glycoprotein (GP) is the only surface protein of MARV. There are substa ...
