  1. A Compact Safe Cold-Start (CS2) System for Scramjets using Dilute Triethylaluminum Fuel Mixtures

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: A202

    This proposal leverages a highly successful Phase 1 feasibility effort to further develop a system that satisfies the cold-start requirements of scramjet engines. The system provides energy-dense, low volume hydrocarbon fuel conditioning based on the hydrolysis reaction of triethylaluminum (TEA) with water. TEA is an organometallic liquid that reacts exothermically with water and burns readily i ...

  2. Acoustic Reduction of Flow Separation

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: T201

    Airfoils produce more lift and less drag when the boundary layer is attached to the airfoil. With most aircraft there are combinations of airspeed and angle of attack where the boundary layer at least partially detaches from the airfoil. Reducing boundary layer detachment increases lift and reduce drag reducing fuel consumption and improving control for the pilot. Two methods known to improve b ...

  3. Adaptive Aeroservoelastic Suppression for Aircraft Upset and Damage Conditions

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: A107

    Impact Technologies, in collaboration with Tennessee State University, propose to develop and demonstrate an adaptive system identification and multi-loop control methodology that provides real-time aircraft structural mode suppression associated with aeroservoelastic interaction under upset and damage conditions. The proposed program will develop an effective real-time aircraft structural model, ...

  4. A Direct Methane Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (DMSOFC)

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: X801

    Producing return fuel on Mars rather than carrying it from Earth significantly reduces the mass that must be lifted from Earth for a manned mission to Mars. The most practical propulsion combination that can be produced is methane and oxygen. Using propellant components made on Mars to generate electric power on the return voyage further reduces the mass that must be lifted.We are proposing to d ...

  5. Advanced Modeling Tools for Controlling Complex Assets Across Time Delay

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: X601

    The proposed innovation is a hybrid simulation module to replace the current "Behavioral Sim" in JSC's Predictive Interactive Graphical Interface (PIGI). PIGI helps an operator compensate for lunar-scale time delay, and is part of NASA's "RAPID Workbench". The Behavioral Sim acts as an oracle, taking initial conditions and a sequence of commands and producing trajectories and expected f ...

  6. Advanced Oxidation Technology for Potable Water Disinfection

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: X301

    The availability of high-quality potable water is essential in crewed space missions. Closed loop water recycling systems as well as potable water holding tanks and waterlines provide environments for biofilm formation that can facilitate the growth of human pathogens, as well as organisms that can cause deterioration of distribution lines. Prevention requires the maintenance of a chemically stabl ...

  7. Advanced Oxygen Evolution Catalysts for PEM Electrolyzers

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: X703

    Future NASA missions require high efficiency, lightweight, long life, and maintenance-free water electrolyzer technologies to generate oxygen and/or hydrogen for energy storage, propulsion, life-support systems, cabin-oxygen replenishment, and zero-g science activities. International Space Station, future Lunar and Martian Outposts, and future exploration vehicles require high efficiency electrol ...

  8. Aerodynamic Modeling with Heterogeneous Data Assimilation and Uncertainty Quantification

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: A205

    Clear Science Corp. proposes to develop an aerodynamic modeling tool that assimilates data from different sources and facilitates uncertainty quantification. The technical merit and feasibility of the technology will be demonstrated in Phase I through a series of verification and validation tests that utilize both computational and wind tunnel data in constructing aerodynamic models for the Orion ...

  9. Aero-Effected Distributed Adaptive Control of Flexible Aircraft Using Active Bleed

    SBC: Atair Aerospace, Inc            Topic: A207

    The proposed research focuses on the development of a new adaptive control methodology for active control of wing aerodynamic shape to effect distributed aerodynamic forces and moments for maneuvering and stabilization of flexible airframes without moving control surfaces. The new aero-effected flight control will be achieved using output feedback adaptive control of distributed bleed across aero ...

  10. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...
