  2. Smallsat Swarm Sparse Aperture SAR for Recon and Surveillance (SSSASAfRaS)

    SBC: VisSidus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T4

    The goal of Phase II work is to further advance the TRL of the swarm coordination and control algorithms from the current estimated TRL 3 to a TRL 4-5. The technical objectives proposed for Phase II are divided into two broad categories that support the goal. One category includes continuation and refinement of the work performed in Phase I and the other category includes new work, some of which h ...

  3. A Scalable Gas-Particle Flow Simulation Tool for Lander Plume-Surface Interaction and Debris Prediction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T9

    Plume-regolith interaction during propulsive landing results in (1) the liberation of dust/debris particles that may collide and strike the landing vehicle and surrounding assets obscuring ground observation for safe landing and (2) craters that are formed on the landing surface, posing additional challenges to vehicle stability and surface operations. The Gas-Granular Flow Solver (GGFS) had previ ...

  4. Validated Engineering Tools for Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Opterus Research and Development, Inc. proposes to develop and validate multi-scale thin-ply High Strain Composites (HSCs) constitutive modeling tools for incorporation into commercial finite element analysis codes. The constitutive models will capture the time-temperature-load-deformation viscoelastic characteristics common to HSCs as well as the yielding or permanent deformation associated with ...

  5. Testing of COTS Systems in Space Radiation Environments

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T6

    For long duration space missions beyond LEO there is a wealth of COTS hardware that could potentially be implemented for non-critical tasks within heavily shielded spacecraft cabins. To employ COTS systems for such missions, we propose to use a simulation/experimental/statistical approach for risk acceptance Radiation Hardness Assurance (RHA) suitable for Cis-Lunar and Cis-Mars missions. The simul ...

  6. Numerical Simulation of Fields in Cavities with Detailed Antenna Modeling

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: T5

    Engineers at NASA are faced with the challenge of understanding complex electromagnetic effects that can impact payloads and launch vehicle hardware located under rocket fairings. Approximate approaches for modelingnbsp;antennas that interact with rocket fairingsnbsp;assume a plane wave incident upon the fairing for external antennas or a simple representation of the antenna (e.g., Hertzian dipole ...

  7. Ada Phase I

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: T11

    Soar Technology, Inc. (SoarTech) and Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) will research and develop a digital assistant (quot;Adaquot;) that can help NASA experts search for and effectively use scientific and technical information (STI) in their work. Ada can provide cognitive support in high-effort search tasks, like examining details of more sources, and use tasks, like applying search results ...

  8. Standards for Impure Propellants

    SBC: Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories Inc.            Topic: T2

    In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) is at the forefront of near-term lunar and Martian missions.nbsp; While many technologies and program strategies focus in ISRU, propellant production substantially impacts the scope and duration of these missions.nbsp; Through ISRU, missions can benefit from substantial mass savings, and size reduction which, in turn, result in longer durations and larger payloa ...

  9. Early-Design Aeroacoustics Prediction for Distributed Electric Propulsion Vehicles using FlightStream

    SBC: Research In Flight, LLC            Topic: T15

    Research in Flight and Auburn University are proposing to develop a robust tool and methodology to allow the simulation and modeling of acoustic signatures for Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) air vehicle concepts in the conceptual design phase. These new tools will enable the study of aeroacoustics in much greater detail and with greater fidelity than heretofore deemed practical in the early ...

  10. A New Oxygen Recovery Process to Reduce Waste from Propellant Tanks

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T2

    After landing, the lunar lander liquid oxygen tank may contain as much as 5% residual oxygen that is pressurized with helium. TDA Research proposes to develop an oxygen recovery module which separates the helium from the oxygen so that the remaining high purity oxygen can be readily supplied to life-support equipment and fuel cells. The oxygen recovery module uses an advanced sorbent that has a hi ...
