  1. Controlled Rigidization Technology for Inflatable Spacecraft

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Large space-deployed structures such as synthetic aperture radars, radiometers, and solar arrays are receiving a great deal of interest by NASA in the Earth Sciences program. These large structures by necessity must be ultra-lightweight and low stored volume. Inflatable or self-deployable approaches that become rigid after they reach the correct shape appear to be a promising approach for fabricat ...

  2. Self-Deploying Foam Antenna Structures

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is an increasing need for large, reliable, and cost-effective inflatable space antennas for communications applications. This Phase I program will focus on the design and development of open-celled foams as structural elements in self-deploying antenna systems. Foams offer the following significant advantages over conventional materials for these applications: open cellular structure allowin ...

  3. Electron Beam Processable Polyimides for High-Performance Composite Applications

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Performance requirements for polymer matrix composites (PMCs) in aerospace and transportation applications are generally quite stringent. Among these requirements are excellent thermal stability, high strength and high toughness. Easy processing is also desirable. Electron-beam (e-beam) curing has the potential to significantly reduce the overall cost of manufacturing PMC parts for use in aerospac ...

  5. An Analysis Model Bus for Distributed, Collaborative Engineering Modeling and Si

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Next generation design software will support fully associative geometric and physics-based analysis models throughout the entire product life-cycle. Most current CAD systems directly support finite element systems, but use proprietary database formats that do not promote diverse tool use and may not exist throughout the entire product life-cycle. Model sharing in common practice has been limited t ...

  7. Development of Synthetic Muscle Systems for NASA Space Robotics/EVA Applications

    SBC: ENVIRONMENTAL ROBOTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the proposed Phase I research is to explore the feasibility of developing a family of novel synthetic muscle systems with robotic sensing and actuation capabilities, for a wide spectrum of NASA space robotic and EVA applications. In particular, configurations of interest may be in the form of multi-fingered biomimetic robotic hands to handle delicate and small space objects such as sma ...

  8. High speed, low noise, near infrared HgCdTe avalanche photodiodes

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    High efficiency and speed silicon avalanche photodiodes (APD) are currently available for low-light detection in the 200 to 1150nm range. However, silicon has weak optical absorption beyond 1000 nm. The NASA Surface Topography and Oceanic Measurements programs requires high efficiency, high speed, and low noise detectors in the 1500 to 2200 nm wavelength region. The semiconductor alloy Hg1-xCdxTe, ...

  9. CERL: The Complex Event Recognition System

    SBC: Neodesic Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Complex Event Recognition Architecture (CERA) provides five major innovations: (1) The ComplexEvent Description Language (CEDL): a declarative language for describing complex events: that is, eventsthat can occur across time, be sensed from multiple channels, and be composed of the conjunction, disjunctionor negation of other complex or simple events; (2) The Complex Event Recognition Language ...
