  2. Sensitivity Analysis for Design Optimization Integrated Software Tools

    SBC: Linked, Inc.            Topic: T401

    The objective of this Phase 2 proposal is to provide a new set of sensitivity analysis theory and codes, the Sensitivity Analysis for Design Optimization (SADO) software that integrates with the existing NASA O3 Tool. In this Phase II effort, the sensitivity codes developed in Phase I will add functionality to simplify Ground Vibration Test, or model tuning, by calculating a number of error metric ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. A Novel, Membrane-Based Bioreactor Design to Enable a Closed-Loop System on Earth and Beyond

    SBC: Mango Materials, Inc.            Topic: T604

    The proposed innovation is a membrane bioreactor system to produce a biopolymer from methane gas that is applicable in outer space environments. This new methane fermentation process will expand and advance current gas delivery techniques to create affordable fermentation methods on Earth and beyond. Mango Materials is currently working to scale up and commercialize the production of polyhydroxyal ...

  6. Advanced Gas Sensing Technology for Space Suits

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: T601

    The gas sensor in the PLSS of the ISS EMU will meet its projected life in 2020, and NASA is planning to replace it. At present, only high TRL devices based on infrared absorption are candidate replacements, because of their proven long-term stability, despite their size and power consumption and failures in the presence of liquid water. No current compact sensor has the tolerance for liquid water ...

  7. Innovative Aerodynamic Modeling for Aeroservoelastic Analysis and Design

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T401

    We propose the development of a novel aerodynamic modeling approach making use of fully unstructured grids for unsteady panel aerodynamic models for aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic analysis. The unsteady aerodynamic code will be integrated with an existing suite of aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic analysis tools making it possible to perform aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic analysis of complex v ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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. Energetic particles from SPEs associated with flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) may adversely affect not only beyond-Low-Earth-Orbit missions, but also aircraft avionics, communications, and airline crew/passenger health. It is cru ...

  10. Extreme Environment Ceramic Energy Harvesting/Sensors

    SBC: Solid State Ceramics, Inc.            Topic: T301

    The program is focused on developing high temperature energy harvesting devices that can convert waste energy (primarily vibratory) such as the mechanical disturbance from thrusters as to include waste exhaust created during operational conditions. The program focus is on developing very high performance devices that are extremely robust and that can continuously operate at up to 500 C. The purpos ...
