  1. Moisture Resistant Primer for Composite Bonded Repairs

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A101

    Aging and durability of aircraft in both the military and civilian sectors are becoming major issues as the existing fleet continues to age. Additionally, the increased use of composite structures in the civilian fleet, such as in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A380, make the understanding and/or improvement of composite durability, particularly durability of repairs, even more critical ...

  2. Lunar Regolith Stabilization for Excavation

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X502

    Establishing human presence outside the protective cover of earth's atmosphere is a challenge. On earth, the atmosphere does not only present breathing gas, it also acts as a thermal buffer and protects the biosphere from harmful radiation. Shielding of humans from harmful radiation during long-term stays on an extraterrestrial body like the moon is a difficult task. Lunar regolith provides an ...

  3. Self-Healing Inflatable, Rigidizable Shelter for the Lunar Environment

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X601

    Any manned missions to extraterrestrial locations will require shelter structures for a variety of purposes ranging from habitat usage to biomass production. Such shelters need to be constructed in such a way to minimize stowed volume and payload weight. The structures must also be very durable and have the ability to survive punctures without collapsing. Ways of increasing available crew-load ...

  4. Foamed Antenna Support for Very Large Apertures

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: O104

    The proposed Phase I program will demonstrate the feasibility of the in-space production of large aperture antenna structures. The use of a novel open cell foam, previously developed for NASA space antennas, will allow the deployment of reflectors at low cost and very low transport volume compared to currently used technologies like solid metal or mesh reflector. The use of a foam substrate also ...

  5. VCHP Radiators for Lunar and Martian Environments

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1101

    Long-term Lunar and Martian systems present challenges to thermal control systems, including changes in thermal load, and large changes in the thermal environment between Lunar (or Martian) day and night. The Lunar thermal environment typically includes long periods in extremely cold thermal environments. A variable conductance heat pipe (VCHP) radiator will be developed that passively accommodat ...

  6. Variable Conductance Heat Pipes for Radioisotope Stirling Systems

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S203

    The overall technical objective of the proposed Phase II program is to complete a system-level demonstration to show the capability and benefits of integrating this backup radiator/Variable Conductance Heat Pipe (VCHP) with the Advanced Stirling Radioisotope Generator (ASRG). The Phase I project developed a feasible VCHP radiator design that can be integrated with the ASRG. In Phase II, a trade ...

  7. Vapor Compressor Driven Hybrid Two-Phase Loop

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1101

    The Phase I project successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the vapor compression hybrid two-phase loop (VCHTPL). The test results showed the high temperature-lift capability and robust operation under transient heat loads of the VCHTPL. At the end of Phase I, the VCHTPL technology reached the NASA's defined Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 4 (Component/breadboard validation in a laboratory e ...

  8. Heat Pipe Solar Receiver for Oxygen Production of Lunar Regolith

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X501

    This Small Business Innovative Research project by Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) will develop an advanced high temperature heat pipe solar receiver that can be used for the production of oxygen from lunar regolith. ACT proposes a high temperature heat pipe solar receiver that can accept and and transfer the solar thermal energy to the lunar soil, thereby extracting oxygen. The heat pip ...

  9. Pressure Controlled Heat Pipe for Precise Temperature Control

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S706

    The principal Phase II objective is to refine and further develop the prototype PCHP into a useful thermal management tool. The Phase I program established the feasibility of thermal control an axially-grooved heat pipe with a variable-volume reservoir. The follow-on Phase II program will address control system optimization, component longevity, reductions in mass and power, and show that the de ...

  10. Visual Data Mining Toolbox

    SBC: Ambint            Topic: S604

    Visual Data Mining (VDM) is an Internet-based software that supports spatial and temporal analyses of multimodal NASA science data including satellite images and in-situ sensory data. It combines computer vision, multi-physics simulation and interactive visualization. VDM tools can be integrated to NASA-related systems for detecting, tracking, modeling and predicting the movement of surface object ...
