  1. 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 ...

  2. High Temperature and High QE Broadband Longwave Infrared SLS FPA for LANDSAT

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S104

    We propose a high-performance broadband infrared focal plane array (FPA) for the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) on NASA's LANDSAT satellite. The FPA will feature a cutoff wavelength of 13 microns, operate at>55K, have a format of 640x512, quantum efficiency>30%, and will be realized using Type-II InAs/GaSb strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes. In Phase I we will develop the b ...

  3. Water Recovery for Regenerative Life Support Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X304

    Thermal and environmental control systems for future exploration spacecraft must meet challenging requirements for efficient operation and conservation of resources. Regenerative CO2 removal systems are attractive for these missions because they do not use consumable CO2 absorbers. However, these systems also absorb water and vent it to space along with the carbon dioxide. This water loss can b ...

  4. A Multi-Environment Thermal Control System With Freeze-Tolerant Radiator

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X304

    Future space exploration missions require advanced thermal control systems (TCS) to dissipate heat from spacecraft, rovers, or habitats to external environments. We propose to develop a lightweight, reliable TCS to effectively maintain cabin and equipment temperatures under widely varying heat loads and ambient temperatures. The proposed system uses freeze-tolerant radiators, which eliminate the ...

  5. Miniature Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer for In-Situ Resource Utilization

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X101

    In situ resource utilization (ISRU) is essential for several of NASA's future flagship missions. Currently envisioned ISRU plants include production of oxygen from hydrogen reduction of lunar regolith and extraction of water from Martian regolith or asteroid material. These ISRU processes require heating of the regolith to high reaction temperatures. To support ISRU activities, NASA requir ...

  7. A Low-Cost IR-Enhanced Video System for Early Obstacle Warning

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    More than 6,000,000 auto accidents occur in the U.S. each year, with about one third resulting in injury and 40,000 resulting in fatality. Approximately thirteen percent of these crashes involve pedestrians. A much broader group of generalized roadway obstacles including pedestrians, other automobiles and non-fixed objects, is responsible for over ninety percent of the accidents. A reasonably p ...

  8. PRESURE IN ASTRONAUTS

    SBC: Aeta Corp            Topic: N/A

    A NEW APPARATUS PROVIDING THE ABILITY TO MEASURE THE BLOOD PRESSURE OF ASTRONAUTS WITHOUT ENCUMBERING THEIR MOVEMENTS IS DESCRIBED. IT USESX A NOVEL BILATERAL PIEZOELECTRIC ARRAY/MICROPROCESSOR SYSTEM (PAAPMS) WHICH MEASURES THE BLOOD PRESSURE AT THE SUPERFICIAL TEMPORAL ARTERY. BLOOD FLOW COMPUTER BASED MODELING OF CIRCULATION FROM THE HEART TO THE TEMPLE DEVELOPED BY AN AFFILIATE COMPANY UNDER A ...

  9. Ge Semiconductor Devices for High-Performance Cryogenic Power Electronics

    SBC: GPD Optoelectronics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is germanium power semiconductor devices (diodes and transistors) developed specifically for power-management and actuator-control circuits operating at low and cryogenic temperatures. This is important for upcoming space missions to extremely cold environments, because it can greatly reduce the need for thermal control and required spacecraft power. These missions include ...

  10. Variable Structure Robot Control Software

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Robot technology is not fully utilized in many NASA, military, and commercial applications because of the application-specific nature of available robot hardware and control software. The use of efficient, operationally flexible robots with multiple sensors, kinematic redundancy, and mobile bases has been limited due to the lack of a flexible means to develop robust control algorithms for position ...
