  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. 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 ...

  4. Improved Combustion Products Monitor for the ISS

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: X303

    The Compound Specific Analyzer – Combustion Products, used on the International Space Station as a warning monitor of smoldering or combustion events, is being phased out of service. Southwest Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a replacement laser-based analyzer using wavelength modulation spectroscopic absorption. This device would be capable of real-time measurements of the four most important ...

  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. Anchoring a lander on an asteroid using foam stabilization

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S403

    NASA has proposed several missions to land a craft on an asteroid and potentially to return samples from it. While large asteroids in the asteroid belt can exhibit a significant amount of gravity, most near-earth asteroids are small and show a surface gravity of less than 0.1% of earth. Landing, and staying on the surface of such a small object is a challenge, especially for manned missions. Ju ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. All Optical Vector Magnetometer

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S105

    This Phase I research project will investigate a novel method of operating an atomic magnetometer to simultaneously measure total magnetic fields and vector magnetic fields. Magnetometry has provided critical scientific information throughout the history of space exploration. The ideal magnetic sensor for space applications would be one which shares the advantages of the fluxgate (vector precision ...
