  1. ShortWave Infrared Focal Plane Technology for Close-Range Active Mineralogy Mapping (SWIFT-CAMM)

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: T801

    We propose to develop a Photon-Counting Integrated Circuit (PCIC) detector and focal plane array (FPA) with highest sensitivity, lowest noise and hence highest signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) among all FPAs covering the shortwave infrared band, for incorporation into a prototype imaging spectroscopy CAMM instrument for real-time operation on a planetary surface to guide rover targeting, sample selecti ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Modified Acoustic Emission for Prognostic Health Monitoring

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: T1201

    Prime Photonics proposes to team with Dr. Duke of Virginia Tech to develop a multi-mode, enhanced piezoelectric acoustic emission sensing system to couple large damage events to local distribution of damage accommodation. Our system will be centered around an instrument designed to accept the output of a piezoelectric transducer sensitive to in-plane acoustic events. The signal processing path w ...

  4. Subsurface Prospecting by Planetary Drones

    SBC: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.            Topic: T402

    Recurring slope linae (RSL), such as those in Newton Crater on Mars, methane plumes in hazardous Martian terrain, and water ice discovered during the LCROSS experiment in the Moon?s permanently shadowed Cabeus Crater drive the need for a new generation of robotic explorers that access, probe, extract, and return resources from extreme terrains. These robots must possess sufficient system-level aut ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Rapid Development of Weapon Payloads via Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A001

    MATSYS proposes to adapt emerging additive manufacturing techniques (so-called 3-D Printing) for use with reactive structural materials and demonstrate this capability to rapidly fabricate reactive case. Our concept incorporates two major manufacturing steps: 3D printing of green compacts from pure Al or Al-based reactive powder blend; and Microwave (MW) sintering of green compacts into net-shaped ...

  8. Self-fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials (SF-SRM) for High Combustion Efficiency

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A002

    MATSYS proposes to develop, test and evaluate a scalable metal-based reactive structural material that will self-fragment to micron or sub-micron scale fuel particles when subjected to explosive shock loading, resulting in significantly enhanced metal combustion efficiency. Use of reactive material casings offers the potential for several-fold increases in blast and overpressure by generating rapi ...

  9. Innovative Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Technology Nodes

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Establish a radiation-aware analysis capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) for DoD ASICs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications. Layout-aware, calibrated single-event radiation models that captur ...

  10. Prediction of Strutural Response and Fluid-Induced Vibration in Turbomachinery

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Advanced turbomachinery components play a critical role in launch vehicle and spacecraft liquid rocket propulsion systems. To achieve desired efficiencies, extremely tight tolerances are often imposed between inducer blades and shrouds or other system components which sets up strong interactions that influence both the aerodynamics and the structural performance of blades and vanes. These transien ...
