  1. A Novel 3D Printer to Support Additive Manufacturing of Gradient Metal Alloy Structures

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: Z601

    Gradient metal alloy structures possess multi-functional properties that conventional monolithic metal counterparts do not have. Such structures can potentially change the paradigm of material selections and mechanical designs to enable more efficient space vehicles to be built. Existing laser-based additive manufacturing techniques for gradient metal alloy fabrication suffer from the following tw ...

  2. Highly Sensitive Flash LADAR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T901

    To address the urgent need for 3D flash-lidar technology for landing on solar system bodies and for spacecraft rendezvous and docking with satellites, an effort is proposed to fabricate, characterize, and test a versatile, high-sensitivity InGaAs APD 3D flash lidar and to advance the technology-readiness level (TRL) of lidar technologies suitable for NASA mission requirements. Leveraging an existi ...

  3. Transparent Tapered Resistive Elements

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: SOCOM16004

    A robust system level design process will be used to identify the design of transparent tapered resistive (TTR) elements, including the materials, fabrication processes, and lifecycle costs. The transparent tapered resistive film will be designed to provides a tapered resistive layer across the film while remaining transparent in the visual and near-infrared optical bands for use in radio-frequenc ...

  4. Color-XHDR- A Compact High-Speed Color Extreme High Dynamic Range Video Capability for Rocket Engine Testing


    Innovative Imaging and Research (I2R) proposes to develop a 21st Century high-speed, color extreme high dynamic range (Color-XHDR) video recording system that will produce calibrated, engineering-grade video to accurately document rocket motor firings, at close range within a test cell, without image saturation. This novel imaging system will include a compact, single camera/single focal plane ar ...

  5. Accident Tolerant Reactor Shutdown for NTP Systems

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: H202

    In this SBIR, USNC will develop an accident tolerant reactor shut-down system for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems that will guarantee sub-criticality in the event of a water submersion accident. Reactor shut down during a water submersion accident is a crucial issue that must be addressed in NTP systems. The technology that USNC will develop in this SBIR is a low risk design feature that ...

  6. Automated Tools and Technologies for Enhancing Long-Range Imagery

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A201

    One of the mandates of NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC) is participating in the flight testing of experimental aircraft, which includes monitoring these tests with long-range, ground-based cameras. Because these cameras track and capture flight tests occurring multiple kilometers away, the imagery collected is often degraded by the atmospheric turbulence between the camera and subjec ...

  7. Integrated Technologies Supporting Seamless Oceanic Transitions

    SBC: The Innovation Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: A301

    We integrate existing technologies and build an infrastructure that is ready to leverage emerging technologies to realize an oceanic TBO capability that is seamless with the domestic air traffic operations and a solution that is within the near-term horizon. Technologies include surveillance (both traditional ADS-B and space-based ADS-B) as well as domestic weather radar and other weather source ...

  8. Landside-Aware Air Traffic Management

    SBC: The Innovation Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: A302

    We focus on the passenger as the key stakeholder of the Air Traffic Management (ATM) system. Air transport is only a portion of the passenger door-to-door journey, which also relies on other modes of transportation (a taxi ride, bus ride, drive over the freeways, rail, or other) to complete the journey. Transportation modes are usually studied separately as if not interacting, although they are ...

  9. Intelligent Information Processing for Enhanced Safety in the NAS

    SBC: Metis Technology Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A303

    We propose a system that focuses on how improved information flow between agents acting in a flight deck environment can improve safety performance. Agents are defined as either human, computational, or hardware that can act on information. Information that can flow to an agent is filtered based on priority. This protects human agents from information glut and information overload and reduces ba ...

  10. Bubble Free Cryogenic Liquid Acquisition Device

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H204

    Recent results of fundamental capillary fluidics investigations conducted aboard the ISS have targeted families of geometries with direct application to Liquid Acquisition Devices for low-g propellant management. NASA's exploration goals will demand low-g cryogenic propellant management for the Exploration Upper Stage and other vehicles. The specific geometric requirements of a LAD providing bubbl ...
