  1. Sensing Aware Autonomous Communications System

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: T501

    Space Micro and its partner research institution, the University of Arizona bring together innovations in channelization and network protocol development. Together, these innovations will provide improved hopping radios (with digital, rapidly reconfigurable implementation, wider bandwidth and reduced overhead penalty for hopping) and improved spectrum and link quality sensing. We will demonstrate ...

  2. Dynamic ASE Modeling and Optimization of Aircraft with SpaRibs

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T401

    In aircraft design, reducing structural weight is often a prime objective, while various constraints in multiple disciplines, such as structure, aerodynamics and aeroelasticity should be imposed on the aircraft. Therefore, engineers need optimization tools to incorporate the multidisciplinary constraints using appropriate fidelity during the early stages of concept design. Classic structural desi ...

  3. Gust Load Estimation and Rejection With Application to Robust Flight Control Design for HALE Aircraft

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: T401

    High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) aircraft have garnered increased interest in recent years as they can serve several purposes, including many of the objectives of satellites while incurring a fraction of the cost to deploy. Examples applications include Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance, communications relay systems, and environmental and atmospheric sensing. The requirements for H ...

  4. Innovative Aerodynamic Modeling for Aeroservoelastic Analysis and Design

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T401

    We propose the development of a modern panel code for calculation of steady and unsteady aerodynamic loads needed for dynamic servoelastic (DSE) analysis of flight vehicles. The code will be especially tailored to be robust, reliable, and integrated with the NASA Object Oriented Optimization (O3) system through selection of analysis methods, file formats, and computing environment, allowing it to ...

  5. Improved Forecasting of Solar Particle Events and their Effects on Space Electronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T602

    High-energy space radiation from Galactic Cosmic Rays and Solar Particle Events (SPEs) pose significant risks to equipment and astronaut health in NASA missions. In particular, energetic particles from SPEs associated with flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) constitute a highly dynamic and penetrating radiation environment that may adversely affect not only beyond-Low-Earth-Orbit missions, bu ...

  6. A Coupled System for Predicting SPE Fluxes

    SBC: PREDICTIVE SCIENCE INCORPORATED            Topic: T602

    Solar Particle Events (SPEs) represent a major hazard for extravehicular maneuvers by astronauts in Earth orbit, and for eventual manned interplanetary space travel. They can also harm aircraft avionics, communication and navigation. We propose to develop a system to aid forecasters in the prediction of such events, and in the identification/lengthening of "all clear" time periods when there is a ...

  7. Advanced Gas Sensing Technology for Space Suits

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: T601

    Advanced space suits require lightweight, low-power, durable sensors for monitoring critical life support materials. No current compact sensors have the tolerance for liquid water that is specifically required for portable life support systems (PLSS). Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) will develop a luminescence-based optical sensor probe to monitor carbon dioxide, oxygen, and humidity, and select ...

  8. Improved Models for Prediction of Locally Intense Aeroacoustic Loads and Vibration Environments

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: T1201

    ATA Engineering, Inc. proposes an STTR program to develop innovative tools and methods that will significantly improve the accuracy of random vibration response predictions for aerospace structures under critical inhomogeneous aeroacoustic loads. This will allow more accurate predictions of structural responses to be made, potentially reducing vehicle weight and cost and improving the reliability ...

  9. Multiple High-Fidelity Modeling Tools for Metal Additive Manufacturing Process Development

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T1204

    Despite the rapid commercialization of additive manufacturing technology such as selective laser melting, SLM, there are gaps in process modeling and material property prediction that contribute to slow and costly process development, process qualification and product certification. To address these gaps, CFDRC and our partner Dr. Kevin Chou, University of Alabama, will develop multiple computatio ...

  10. NLV Upper Stage Development and Flight Testing

    SBC: Garvey Spacecraft Corporation            Topic: T101

    The technical innovation proposed here is the design during Phase I of a high performance upper stage for a two-stage "20 / 450" Nanosat Launch Vehicle (NLV) that is configured to deliver up to 20 kg to a 450 km low Earth orbit (Figure 1). Parallel tasks prepare for the Phase II development and sub-orbital flight testing of a prototype vehicle that is directly traceable to the orbital-capable ...
