  1. Three dimensional detection ranging and mapping of utilities and underground infrastructure at intersections using step-frequency groung penetrating radar without traffic control

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 122FH5

    A method to detect, locate, and map utilities and underground infrastructure is proposed at traffic speeds based on recent advances in step-frequency ground penetrating radar (SFGPR). Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated imaging of subsurface civil infrastructure elements such as pavement structure and inductive loop detectors embedded in the pavement. The proposed r ...

  2. An Ultra Low Power Cryo-Refrigerator for Space

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S107

    Future NASA Space Science Missions will incorporate detectors, sensors, shields, and telescopes that must be cooled to cryogenic temperatures. An enabling technology for these missions is advanced cryocoolers that can provide continuous and distributed cooling with minimal input power. On this program, Creare proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative cryocooler that produces refrigeratio ...

  3. Formaldehyde Profiler Using Laser Induced Fluorescence Technique

    SBC: MASSTECH, INC.            Topic: S108

    Formaldehyde (HCHO) is a key trace species that is of great interest to atmospheric scientists in NASA and other research institutions. In this SBIR project, we proposed to build an airborne atmospheric formaldehyde (HCHO) profiler implementing a Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) technique. This airborne instrument can also be used on the ground for measuring vertical HCHO profiles. To our knowle ...

  4. An Advanced Wet Expansion Turbine for Hydrogen Liquefaction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X1001

    This proposal is responsive to NASA SBIR Topic X10.01, specifically, the need for efficient small- to medium-scale hydrogen liquefaction technologies, including domestically produced wet cryogenic turboexpanders. Future NASA missions will require hydrogen liquefaction systems for spaceport, planetary, and lunar surface operations. A critical part of these systems is the cryogenic expansion turbi ...

  5. A Robust Real-Time Collaboration Technology for Decision Support in Multi-Platform Virtual Globe Environments

    SBC: STORMCENTER COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: S602

    The innovation aims to develop the tools for multiple geobrowsers to communicate over the Internet to create a real collaborative experience over computer desktop virtual globes when dealing with any type of geospatial information. These functions are especially important when dealing with decision makers, who frequently are non-GIS experts that require visualizing their own assets on a map, like ...

  6. Improved CDGPS FDIR Using Comm-based Relative Measurements

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S401

    The proposed innovation is to use the comm-based measurements available from many advanced satellite cluster wireless networks to improve the flexibility and robustness of relative and absolute navigation systems without the additional expense, weight and power that a traditional navigation backup systems (like an extra GPS receiver) would require. This will be accomplished by comparing the range ...

  7. Automatic Video-based Motion Analysis

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1501

    Operations in confined, isolated, and resource-constrained environments can lead to suboptimal human performance. Understanding task performance and crew behavioral health is crucial to mission success and the optimal design, development and operation of next generation space craft. Onboard resources, such as a single conventional video camera, can capture crew motion and interaction. There is a c ...

  8. A Turbo-Brayton Cryocooler for Aircraft Superconducting Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A201

    Hybrid turbo-electric aircraft with gas turbines driving electric generators connected to electric propulsion motors have the potential to transform the aircraft design space by decoupling power generation from propulsion. Resulting aircraft designs such as blended-wing bodies with distributed propulsion can provide the large reductions in emissions, fuel burn, and noise required to make air tran ...

  9. Plug-and-Play Compatibility for CubeSat Attitude Determination and Control Systems

    SBC: Maryland Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: O103

    The development of Plug-and-play Compatibility for CubeSat Attitude Determination and Control Systems (ADACS) is proposed. Existing Maryland Aerospace (MAI) ADACS technologies are well-capable of autonomously providing complete attitude determination and control to satellites weighing up to 20kg. It is essential for these ADACS technologies to be fully compliant with a Plug-and-Play standard that ...

  10. Radio Navigation Waveform Experiment

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: O106

    NASA is installing the Communications, Navigation, and Networking reConfigurable Testbed (CoNNeCT) onto the truss of the International Space Station to demonstrate software-defined radio (SDR) technology, and is now accepting proposals for new and useful SDR experiments to fly on CoNNeCT that are compliant with the Space Telecommunications Radio System (STRS) SDR standard. Emergent Space Technol ...
