  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Zero G Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: E103

    The Zero G Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD) will provide the ability to quantify the mass of objects up to 2,000 grams, including live animal specimens in a zero G environment, an innovative because there currently are no such devices available to perform mass measurement of smaller masses (<2000 grams) in space. At present there are no tools on board the International Space Station (ISS) to mea ...

  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. Droplet-Sizing Liquid Water Content Sensor

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: A102

    Icing is a significant aviation hazard, and icing conditions continue to be difficult to precisely forecast or locate in real time. An in-situ sensor, which can be flown coupled with a radiosonde, is needed which can both measure supercooled liquid water content in clouds as well as characterize the droplet sizes. This sensor will support the calibration and validation of remote-sensing methods ...

  7. Integrated Composite Rocket Nozzle Extension

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: H202

    ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate an Integrated Composite Rocket Nozzle Extension (ICRNE) for use in rocket thrust chambers. The ICRNE will utilize an innovative bonding approach to join a high-temperature composite nozzle extension to a regeneratively cooled metallic nozzle. The ICRNE technology will allow high-temperature composite materials to be directly integrated into a regenerativ ...

  8. Acoustic Resonance Reaction Control Thruster (ARCTIC)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: H202

    ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate the innovative Acoustic Resonance Reaction Control Thruster (ARCTIC) to provide rapid and reliable in-space impulse without the use of toxic hypergols, delicate catalyst beds, or cumbersome spark systems. The ARCTIC thruster will exceed current reliability standards, reduce RCS complexity, and provide system-level benefits by minimizing weight, decreasin ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
