  1. Metamaterials

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: T8

    NASA has called for the development of light-weight metamaterials technology that allows antenna beam shaping, at all optical and microwave wavelengths using effective optical properties not found in nature. In response, Alphacore is proposing a meta-transmission line wave-space that will miniaturize a Rotman lens by a factor of 100, while retaining its time-delay properties.nbsp;The Rotman lens i ...

  2. Long Term Uses of Potable Water Containing Silver Disinfectant in High Surface to Volume Ratio Metallic Surfaces

    SBC: Cactus Materials Llc            Topic: T6

    This project proposes a solution to the stability of biocidal silver in water treatment and storage systems of the International Space Station. Silver is known to react with some of the metallic (e.g. 316 stainless steel, Inconel 718, and titanium 6A1-4V) components of the water storage system, which result in a gradual loss of biocidal silver ions over time in the water.nbsp;Various studies have ...

  3. Cooperative Control and Localization of Multiple Spacecraft using a Multi-Agent Mission Operations System

    SBC: INTERSTEL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: T4

    Multi-satellite swarms are becoming popular due to their low costs and short development time. Instead of large and costly monolithic satellites, small satellite swarms can be flown as distributed sensing applications for atmospheric sampling, distributed antennas, synthetic apertures among other exciting applications, delivering an even greater mission capability. This Phase-I project contributes ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Compact Ethylene Monitor for NASA Space Missions

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: T6

    Human missions to the Moon and Marsnbsp;will require advanced systems to maintain an environment supporting human life. Smart greenhouses are necessary for fresh food supply in long term space missions. Through natural metabolic processes, plants can produce ethylene, which can accumulate in closed environments and have undesirable effects on the plants. These effects can include reduced growth, i ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Comfortable, Easy-To-Fit, Deep-Insert Earplug

    SBC: Paxauris LLC            Topic: DHA19C001

    Effective hearing protection is essential for service members who work in hazardous noise environments and for whom permanent or even temporary hearing damage affects performance, endangers lives, and reduces quality of life. Various devices have been developed to attenuate high levels of impulse and continuous noise while allowing low-level sounds to pass through. However, issues with comfort, ea ...

  10. Neurofeedback Training and Hyperscanning for Mission Readiness and Return-to-Duty via Functional Near-Infrared Spectrometry (fNIRS)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: DHA19B001

    Until now,much of theresearch usingfunctional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) has focused on tailoringasystem to detect onlyafew cognitivestatesand theapplication of theseapproaches outsidethe laboratory is not well tested. This solution provides severely limited coverage of thespacethat this technology could beapplied to,and is notarealistic path for developing neuroimagingasan operational ass ...
