  2. In Situ Microradiometers: Smaller, Faster, and Scalable to Hyperspectral

    SBC: Biospherical Instruments, Inc.            Topic: E103

    Radiometers are a crucial element in NASA's studies of Planet Earth. This proposal addresses the basic need for a miniature light sensor, flexibly configurable and optimized for above and in-water optical property measurements. The innovation we are proposing develops a 1 cm diameter photodetector module, called a "microradiometer." The microradiometer consists of a photodetector, preamplifier ...

  3. Universal Space IP Transparent Proxy

    SBC: Broadata Communications, Inc.            Topic: E202

    Communications applications are strategically moving toward Internet Protocol-based architectures and technologies. Despite IP's huge potential, (e.g. cost effectiveness, reduced development and installation times), it has not proved to be appropriate for space communication applications. IP-based space networking links exhibit poor performance induced by narrow bandwidth, long propagation loops, ...

  4. Simulation-Based Lunar Telerobotics Design, Acquisition and Training Platform for Virtual Exploration

    SBC: DigitalSpace Corporation            Topic: X502

    Meeting the objectives of returning to the moon by 2020 will require NASA to fly a series of telerobotic lunar orbital and surface vehicles to prove the viability of In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) and assist in precursor human base preparation. A real-time 3D tool that creates plausible simulations of space environments and vehicles can bring an urgently needed rapid prototyping capability to ...

  5. Revolutionary Performance For Ultra Low Reynolds Number Vehicles

    SBC: ROLLING HILLS RESEARCH CORP            Topic: A207

    A novel technique for controlling transition from laminar to turbulent flow in very low Reynolds number conditions has been developed. Normally flows with Reynolds numbers in the range of 20,000 to 120,000 are dominated by laminar separation bubbles and are difficult to transition without using very large traditional trip devices, such as distributed roughness. Additionally, these traditional tr ...

  6. A Constraint-Based Geospatial Data Integration System for Wildfire Management

    SBC: Fetch Technologies            Topic: E301

    We propose to implement a constraint-based data integration system for wildfire intelligence, for use during both the pre-planning and event response phases of wildfire fighting. Our system will automatically integrate online, heterogeneous data sources and hyperspectral imagery. Current technology tends to focus mostly on the event response phases and supports only limited types of integration, ...

  7. Flexible and Safe Control of Mobile Surface Systems

    SBC: IA Tech, Inc.            Topic: X501

    The primary innovation of this work is a novel approach for flexible and safe control of highly capable mobile surface systems, such as long-duration science rovers, crew surface systems, multi-robot and human-robot teams. The traditional approach of time-based sequence of commands will not be adequate for commanding and coordinating future mobile surface systems because it does not support concu ...

  8. Smart Skins and Tactile-Feedback Motion Control for Robotic Manipulators

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: X401

    Future high-dexterity robots promise enormous benefits to many areas of human endeavor performing operations difficult or hazardous for humans such as extra vehicular repairs. However, operating complicated tools and performing intricate repairs requires manipulators of great precision and excellent coordination. Human hands are very complex instruments with capacity for reception of and reaction ...

  9. Model-Based Design Tools for Extending COTS Components To Extreme Environments

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: S402

    The innovation in this project is model-based design (MBD) tools for predicting the performance and useful life of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components and COTS-based systems beyond their rated temperature range. Phase I results have shown the feasibility of these tools, which consist of novel modeling tools and advanced system and data analysis capability. The modeling tools differ from all ...

  10. In Situ Manufacturing of Plastics and Composites to Support H&R Exploration

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: X101

    Makel Engineering and BAE Systems propose to develop processes to manufacture plastics and composites for radiation shielding based on In Situ Resources Utilization (ISRU). The production of plastics and composites will also serve as feedstock for In Situ Manufacturing of a variety of useful components, such as inflatable structures, replacement parts, etc. The direction set to NASA by the Presi ...
