  1. Innovative Solid State Lighting Replacements for Industrial and Test Facility Locations

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: T1002

    The proposed effort will develop a solid-state LED replacement lamp for rocket engine test stand lighting and more general hazardous-location lighting. The LED lighting will produce a smoother lighting spectrum compared to the existing arc lamp sources which will improve the visual accuracy and quality of high-speed engine photography. The LED lighting will also last significantly longer than ar ...

  3. Gaseous Helium Reclamation at Rocket Test Systems

    SBC: Sierra Lobo, Inc.            Topic: T1001

    GHe reclamation is critical in reducing operating costs at rocket engine test facilities. Increases in cost and shortages of helium will dramatically impact testing of rocket engines for launch vehicles and space propulsion systems as the global supply of this non-renewable element diminishes. Extremely large quantities of helium are being used during rocket engine testing each year at various t ...

  4. Aircraft Engine Life-Consumption Monitoring for Real-Time Reliability Determination

    SBC: Nastec, Inc.            Topic: A108

    The object of this research is to develop an in-service life-monitor system for the prediction of the remaining component and system life of aircraft engines. The embedded system will monitor the engines thrust, exhaust gas temperature, the engine efficiency, the speed and the time of operation of the engine in flight. Based upon this data, the life-estimation analog of the system will calculate ...

  5. High Radiation Resistance Inverted Metamorphic Solar Cell

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: S303

    The innovation in this SBIR Phase II project is the development of a unique triple junction inverted metamorphic technology (IMM), which will enable the manufacturing of very lightweight, low-cost, InGaAsP-based multijunction solar cells. The proposed IMM technology is based on ELO (epitaxial lift-off) and consists of Indium (In) and Phosphorous (P) solar cell active materials, which are designed ...

  6. Reconfigurable VLIW Processor for Software Defined Radio

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: O103

    We will implement an environment for design, formal verification, compilation of code, and performance and power evaluation of Systems on a Chip (SOCs) consisting of heterogeneous processor cores that can be single-issue pipelined, superscalar, or VLIW, and are binary-code compatible with any existing Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). Particularly, we will ensure binary-code compatibility with t ...

  7. An Automated High Aspect Ratio Mesher for Computational Fluid Dynamics

    SBC: Ciespace Corporation            Topic: T801

    The work will focus on the 3D implementation of the Phase 1 CHARM mesher, with solution-adaptive iteration for CFD and non-CFD applications. The proposed 3D method will incorporate and extend a previously developed method of generating field-guided hexahedral elements from a metric tensor field. While the fundamental technical approach?a combination of metric tensor conditioning, metric-tracing me ...

  8. Multi-Layered Integrated Airframe System

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: X902

    This proposed Phase II program builds on the Phase I effort addressing NASA's future mission requirements by: 1) developing higher performing TPS materials capable of meeting the demands of multiple severe mission trajectories; and 2) integrating TPS materials with the sub-structure to improve overall robustness and decrease mass. The program's goal is to extend Phenolic Impregnated Car ...

  9. Phenolic Impregnated Carbon Ablator (PICA) Gap Filler for Heat Shield Assemblies

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: X901

    During this program, Fiber Materials, Inc. (FMI) will develop practical methods for preparing Phenolic Impregnated Carbon Ablator (PICA) materials for joining thermal protection system segments and penetrations of the heat shield assembly. Current and future mission flight environments and designs, such as those for Mars Science Laboratory Aeroshell (MSLA) and anticipated for New Frontiers and Mar ...

  10. Micro GC's for Contaminant Monitoring in Spacecraft Air

    SBC: Cbana Laboratories            Topic: X203

    Based on the successful separation of 20 compounds using a 1 m coated microcolumn in Phase I, we propose to design a new micro-gas chromatograph (microGC) system to separate and detect of all contaminants listed in NASAs "Spacecraft Maximum Allowable Concentrations for Airborne Contaminants (SMACs)" using cabin air as the carrier gas, and to integrate the entire system to maximize the de ...
