  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. Antistatic Thermal Control Coatings

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

    Electrostatic discharge control is vital for the health of any spacecraft. Exposure to charged particles in a space enviroment can lead to large charge differences across the craft, that, if no mechanism for controlled discharge is present, can destroy mission critical equipment. The preferred way of ESD control is to use conducting thermal control coatings. These coatings combine the ability to r ...

  7. Self-Deploying Foam Antenna Structures

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

    Inflatable or self-deployable systems offer the only practical way to achieve space deployed antennas with low mass at large aperture. In this Phase I program, open-celled rigid polyurethane foams were developed for use in self-deploying antenna structures. Advantages of such a system relative to current systems include high volumetric efficiency of packing, inherent restoring force, low (or no) o ...

  9. Spacesuit Monitor

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

    The concentration of carbon dioxide in exhaled breath is 3.8%; a concentration of 2% causes deepened breathing, and 4% causes a marked increase in respiration. These higher concentrations of CO2 also cause drowsiness and can be unsafe. Therefore, it is desirable to monitor the concentration of CO2 in exhaled breath to guarantee the safety of an astronaut in the dangerous extravehicular environment ...

  10. Surface Modification of Exfoliated Graphite Nano-Reinforcements

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A205

    Phase I results showed that two surface treatments, oxidative plasma and reactive finishes, are effective means of modifying the surface chemistry of exfoliated graphite nanoflakes. The surface modifications provide a more compatible surface energy for dispersion in polymers and create well-bonded interfaces with the polymer matrix. In order to be cost effective for NASA and commercial applicati ...
