  1. Perception and Navigation for Exploration of Shadowed Domains

    SBC: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.            Topic: T1101

    On-the-ground confirmation of lunar ice will transform space exploration, as ice can provide fuel to support far-reaching exploration and enable commercial endeavors. Evidence from satellite observations strongly supports the presence of polar ice, but driving and excavation are required to confirm presence, measure distribution, and extract resources. In-situ resource extraction at the lunar pol ...

  2. Long-Range Terrain Characterization for Productive Regolith Excavation

    SBC: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.            Topic: T402

    The proposed research will develop long-range terrain characterization technologies for autonomous excavation in planetary environments. This work will develop a machine learning framework for long-range prediction of both surface and subsurface terrain characteristics that: (1) indicate the excavation-value of the material and (2) describe how hazardous terrain is to a robotic excavator. Factors ...

  3. Ceramic Matrix Composite Environmental Barrier Coating Durability Model

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: T1202

    As the power density of advanced engines increases, the need for new materials that are capable of higher operating temperatures, such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), is critical for turbine hot-section static and rotating components. Such advanced materials have demonstrated the promise to significantly increase the engine temperature capability relative to conventional super alloy metallic ...

  4. Subsurface Prospecting by Planetary Drones

    SBC: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.            Topic: T402

    The proposed program innovates subsurface prospecting by planetary drones to seek a solution to the difficulty of robotic prospecting, sample acquisition, and sample characterization at multiple hazardous locations in a single mission. Innovation focuses on a specific, challenging scenario: sub-surface access of multiple lava tubes by drones far enough from Earth for speed-of-light latency to pre ...

  5. Multi Domain Modeling for Space Systems

    SBC: Metamorph Inc            Topic: T1102

    A comprehensive model-based approach will be enabled for space systems design via the work started on Phase I of this project. The OpenMETA toolkit is a cyber-physical modeling tool for the design and virtual integration of complex systems, developed under the DARPA AVM Program. OpenMETA will be leveraged and extended to support NASA/JPL goals for multi-physics, multi-domain modeling, analysis, ...

  6. Extreme Environment Ceramic Energy Harvesting/Sensors

    SBC: Solid State Ceramics, Inc.            Topic: T301

    It is proposed to address the critical element in the NASA/NRC report that identifies the need for Energy Harvesting that 'can provide local power to improve efficiency, or even provide power to NASA's equipment in Extreme Environments where other power sources could not operate or would be too large or bulky or inefficient. The same devices will provide harsh environment compatible sensor capabil ...

  7. Advanced Hybrid Stage

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES INC            Topic: T101

    The proposed technology builds off GTL's advanced solid ramjet fuel. The method uses additive manufacturing methods to produce an innovative new type of fuel grain that regresses quickly and has a high Isp and combustion efficiency. With this technology, the performance of a liquid rocket engine can be had with a hybrid rocket system. This technology allows for a simple, low cost, high performanc ...

  8. Integrated Reacting Fluid Dynamics and Predictive Materials Degradation Models for Propulsion System Conditions

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: T1202

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations are routinely used by NASA to optimize the design of propulsion systems. Current methods for CFD modeling rely on general materials properties to determine fluid structure interactions. This introduces uncertainty when modeling extreme conditions, where materials degrade and properties may change as a consequence. This also limits the use of CFD as a ...

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

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            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 ...
