  1. METROSIM: Metroplex-Wide Flight Planning and Optimization

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: E201

    The key innovation of this effort is the development of a Metroplex-based arrival, departure, and surface optimization system which we call MetroSim. Linking with both the NASA-developed Traffic Management Advisor (TMA) tool, the NASA-developed System Oriented Runway Management (SORM) tool, the FAA-proposed Terminal Flight Data Management (TFDM) system, or alternatively with live or recorded flig ...

  3. GNSS Reflectometer Instrument for Bi-Static Synthetic Aperture Radar (GRIBSAR) Measurements of Earth Science Parameters

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: S2001

    Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals scattered from ocean, land and ice are affected by the reflecting surface, and hence the changes induced by the surface can be observed. The full-time operation of radio navigation satellites system, abundant global signal coverage and spread spectrum communication for flexible signal processing makes GNSS reflected signals a viable candidate for S ...

  4. Space Evaporator Absorber Radiator for Life Support and Thermal Control Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H2002

    Future human space exploration missions will require advanced life support technology that can operate across a wide range of applications and environments. Thermal control systems for space suits and spacecraft will need to meet critical requirements for water conservation and adaptability to highly variable thermal environments. To achieve these goals, we propose an International Space Station ...

  5. Networked ATM for Efficient Routing

    SBC: Robust Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A301

    We developed a EFB Data Communication Network (EDCN) concept that offers a more capable air-ground communications architecture. The solution takes full advantage of emerging communications technologies to integrate AOC/FOC and flight deck capabilities and leverage existing system integration between the AOC/FOC and TFMS to fully close the loop between controllers, traffic managers, pilots and disp ...

  8. Acousto-Optic Tunable Filter-Based Polarimetric Spectral Sensor With Progressive Algorithm For Material Analysis and Mapping


    One of the strategic goals of NASA's Planetary Science Mission is to advance scientific knowledge of the origin and history of the solar system, the potential for life elsewhere. The current STTR addresses this strategic goal. The proto-type AOTF-based SWIR spectropolarimetric imaging system developed in Phase I (which will be further optimized and integrated with optimal algorithm/software in Pha ...

  9. Integrated CubeSat ADACS with Reaction Wheels and Star Tracker

    SBC: Maryland Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: S306

    The MAI-400SS Space Sextant is a precision attitude determination and control system for CubeSats and Nanosats. The MAI-400SS enables future CubeSat missions with precision fine pointing (0.1deg) and dynamic slewing as will be required for imaging operations of ground targets. A flight control computer, 2 Star Trackers, 3 reaction wheels and 3 electromagnets are incorporated in a 4" x 4" x 3" (3 ...

    SBIR Phase II 2013 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. A Turbo-Brayton Cryocooler for Aircraft Superconducting Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A201

    Hybrid turboelectric aircraft with gas turbines driving electric generators connected to electric propulsion motors have the potential to transform the aircraft design space by decoupling power generation from propulsion. Resulting aircraft designs such as blended-wing bodies with distributed propulsion can provide the large reductions in emissions, fuel burn, and noise required to make air trans ...
