  1. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  2. Weather Information Services Supporting Civilian UAS Operations

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A201

    We build a system that supports the weather information needs of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) planning to fly in the National Airspace System (NAS). This weather information service will supply information to UAS Ground Control Stations (GCSs) from the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) 4D Weather Data Cube, the Single Authoritative Source (SAS) for aviation weather informati ...

  3. FACET as a Collaborative, Open Source UAS Research Platform

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A201

    We build a tool that accelerates Research and Development (R & D) aimed at introducing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS). In the proposed effort, FACET will form the basis of a collaborative R & D platform, an environment where users can share open source software modules (software and data sets developed to reside outside the FACET Application Progra ...

  4. Advanced Microgravity Compatible, Integrated Laundry System

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: X302

    An Advanced Microgravity Compatible, Integrated laundry System (AMCILS) is proposed that uses a two phase water / water vapor system to allow good agitation of clothing during the wash & rinse cycle. Drying will be accomplished utilizing microwave energy addition and "jet" air flow to fluff and move clothing in the washing chamber. Operation in a two phase water / water vapor system precludes th ...

  5. Scandate Cathode for High Power Long Life Electric Propulsion

    SBC: E BEAM INC            Topic: E101

    Scandate cathodes are proposed as a way to boost performance and life for electric space propulsion systems. This company has recently demonstrated breakthrough performance on these cathodes in other formats. We have demonstrated emission of 5 Amps/cm2 at 850 degrees CB, which is 200 degrees C below that of conventional cathodes. At this temperature they should live at least 100,000 hours. Thi ...

  6. Advanced Capabilities Medical Suction Device

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H1202

    A compact microgravity and hypogravity compatible vacuum device is proposed to provide medical suction and containment of extracted fluids. The proposed aspirator will draw up to 40 L/min of air and produce a nominal vacuum of 500-mm Hg, which is comparable to commercially available medical aspirators. The unit will also provide a means for separation and containment of up to 1000 mL of aspirate ...

  7. Advanced Long-Range Video Capabilities Using Speckle Imaging Techniques

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A402

    Flight-testing is a crucial component in NASA's mission to research and develop new aeronautical concepts because it allows for verification of simulated and wind-tunnel experiments and exposes previously unforeseen design problems. Video is an invaluable tool for flight-testing, allowing the collection of a wealth of information such as craft position, speed, health, as well as tracking diff ...

  8. Flexible, High Performance Microlens Array Technologies for Integral Field Spectrographs

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S103

    For the purposes of advancing integral field spectrograph (IFS) microlens capabilities, a new class of high-quality optics-grade nanostructured organic-inorganic nanocomposite three-dimensional (3D) gradient index (GRIN) microlens optical materials is proposed. In the Phase I program, solid state freeform (SFF) fabrication of high contrast 3D-gradient-index microlens array elements will be demonst ...

  9. Passive Devices for Advanced Fluid Management aboard Spacecraft

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H1002

    Acute challenges are faced by the designers of fluid systems for spacecraft because of the persistently unfamiliar and unforgiving low-g environment. For example, most fluid systems aboard spacecraft are impacted by the presence of capillary forces?a poor understanding of which has led to poorly performing life support equipment. Despite an increasing number of flight investigations concerning cap ...

  10. Convective Induced Turbulence (CIT) Detection via Total Lightning Sensing

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A101

    We proposes to build a prototype Convective-Induced Turbulence (CIT) hazard detection system based on total lightning sensing as an indicator of the location and severity of in-cloud CIT. Total lightning is the combination of cloud-to-ground and in-cloud lightning and has been shown to correlate well with storm dynamics. Total lightning activity will be measured globally at high temporal resolut ...
