  1. Plug and Play: Utilizing MOFs in Preexisting Carbon Dioxide Removal Assemblies for Enhanced Performance, Smaller Footprint, and Lower Energy Consumption.

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T6

    Protection against the buildup of CO2 in spacecraft is of crucial importance to astronaut health. Currently, several methods are used to remove CO2 from spacecraft including amine scrubbers, lithium hydroxide canisters, and adsorbent-based carbon dioxide removal assemblies (CDRAs). Each scrubbing method has individual benefits and drawbacks: amine scrubbers have no particulate release but require ...

  2. Scalable and Distributed Inertial Navigation Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: T4

    Current state of the art inertial measurement units (IMUs) co-locate a set of accelerometers and gyroscopes into a single package. CU Aerospace (CUA), in partnership with the University of Illinois, propose to develop a scalable and distributed IMU for space robotics and CubeSat applications. The user can choose to include an arbitrary number of inertial sensors beyond the minimal number of sensor ...

  3. Integrated High Frequency Electric Propulsor for Turbo-Electric Aircraft

    SBC: HINETICS LLC            Topic: A1

    We propose the development of a very high specific power integrated electric turbofan directly driven with a high frequency, air-core synchronous motor. If the target specific power is achieved, this technology could increase the viability of turbo-electric airplanes for commercial air transport, leading to significantly lower carbon emissions and energy use in aviation. The key inn ...

  4. Collaborative Trajectory Options Planning for the Flight Deck

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A3

    We develop Flight Deck (FD) and Airline Operational Control (AOC) Decision Support Tools (DSTs) for strategic guidance to pilots for mitigating encounters with en route weather hazards.  Implemented on either Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) or Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs), the system is designed to increase the likelihood of Air Traffic Control (ATC) approv ...

  5. Virtual Marketplace for Urban Air Mobility

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A3

    We build a software system that executes a virtual marketplace for urban air mobility (UAM).  The virtual marketplace will serve the traveling public with an on-demand system that connects multi-modal modes of transportation in a competitive marketplace environment utilizing forward auctions and reverse auctions to provide cost effective transportation of people and goods.  The virtual m ...

  6. Nanophotonic and Capillary Assisted Water Recovery

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: H3

    The current generation of spacecraft and terrestrial water recovery technologies are often prone to failures caused by biofouling and mineral scaling, which can clog mechanical systems and degrade the performance of capillary-based technologies. These failures require expensive and time-consuming maintenance and resupply, and the technologies are therefore limited to environments where these resou ...

  7. Advanced Passive Phase Separations for Space Exploration

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H8

    Nearly all fluid systems aboard spacecraft are, or become, multiphase fluid systems, whether by design or default. Unfortunately, we still do not possess ample understanding of low-g fluid phenomena to assure performance and avoid system failure. Though inadequate fluid system design can lead to disastrous consequences, for the most part, and for life support systems in general, precious crew time ...

  8. Chip-Scale Active Fast Light Gyroscope and Accelerometer using Integrated Photonic Technology

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S3

    The fast-light effect in a cavity, in the active or passive mode, has emerged as an important mechanism for enhancing the sensitivity of many devices.  Recently, we have been investigating the development of gyroscopes and accelerometers using the active mode, in which the cavity is a Fast-Light Ring Laser (FLRL).  Specifically, we have demonstrated, on a table-top, a pair of counter-pro ...

  9. Single Photon Counting LIDAR Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S1

    To address NASA’s need for next-generation spaceborne lidar systems for aerosol, cloud, and ocean profiling, Voxtel is developing a low-noise high-efficiency high-dynamic-range photon-counting (HiP) sensor. The HiP sensor is based on silicon single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) technology and is capable of both atmospheric and ocean profiling, essentially enabling the first-ever ocean-profil ...

  10. Enabling High Efficiency I/O Performance on High-End Computing Systems and Data Stores with HDF5

    SBC: Akadio, Inc.            Topic: S5

    Akadio proposes to develop H5 Hermes, an enhancement to HDF5 to enable high efficiency I/O performance for HDF5 applications that perform many related reads and writes across large data structures. Such I/O operations are often a serious bottleneck for large scale simulations, resulting in I/O bottlenecks that significantly degrade overall performance.There are existing HDF5-based solutions simila ...
