  1. Physical Improvements in Exciter/Igniter Units

    SBC: Alphaport, Inc.            Topic: X903

    The proposed Phase 2 project consists of the physical integration of our Phase 1 small, compact exciter with a "flight like" igniter or spark plug capable of hot-fire testing. The exciter/igniter unit will operate to a pre-established subset of expected flight performance requirements established and met in Phase 1. The exciter/igniter unit will physically integrate the exciter electronics with ...

  2. Space-Qualifiable Cyanate Ester Elastomer

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A201

    In Phase 1, CRG demonstrated the feasibility of a novel approach to prepare cyanate ester based elastomers. This approach polymerizes in-situ siloxane within a reactive elastomer precursor matrix in order to achieve an elastomeric material with highly tunable and desired mechanical properties. This methodology shows great potential in materials development for applications such as space deployabl ...

  3. Low Mass Aeroshell Deployment Mechanism

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: S704

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) will develop new shape memory polymer (SMP) deployment mechanisms for actuating thermal protection system (TPS) panels to create a deployable, large surface area aeroshell. This innovation will exploit Veriflex(R) -- CRG's high-performance SMP material -- to create a low-mass actuation system for a deployable aeroshell design. Veriflex(R)-based mechanisms wi ...

  4. Integrated Cognitive Assessment: Combining Measurement, System, and Mission

    SBC: NTI, Inc.            Topic: X1301

    Existing cognitive performance test batteries consist of synthetic tasks that, while they may probe isolated cognitive functions, provide an incomplete and unconvincing picture of an individual's true cognitive capacity within the total context of space missions. In essence, they are 'laboratory' measures that appear unrelated to the real-world environment. This leads to user non-compliance or re ...

  5. Efficient Radiation Simulation in Complex Geometries with Applications to Planetary Entry

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A206

    NASA aerocapture missions require an accurate evaluation of radiative thermal transport in order to simulate the aerothermal environment around space vehicles. However, present day computation of radiative transport in this complex multi-dimensional environment is frequently done using simple one-dimensional tangent-slab approximations or optically-thick approximations which compromise the accura ...

  6. Lunar Health Monitor

    SBC: ORBITAL RESEARCH INC            Topic: X1402

    During the Phase II Lunar Health Monitor program, Orbital Research will develop a second generation wearable sensor suite for astronaut physiologic monitoring. The low profile system will be appropriate for both Extravehicular activities (EVA) and Intravehicular activities (IVA) monitoring scenarios. The EVA and IVA wearable platforms are capable of monitoring a complete physiologic profile of ove ...

  7. Dual Polarization Multi-Frequency Antenna Array

    SBC: SPECTRA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: S102

    Innovative approaches for broadband multi-function antennas that conserve vehicle weight and reduce drag are welcome solutions for all airborne platforms including suborbital vehicles, where less total weight translates to longer mission times, less expensive payloads, and more acrobatic flight control. The Spectra Research team proposes an innovative approach to accomplishing the program objectiv ...

  8. Lightweight High Temperature Beta Gamma Alloy/Process Development for Disk and Blade Applications

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: A201

    The primary material and manufacturing limitations of gamma TiAl alloys include processing difficulties, requiring costly non-conventional processing requirements, and large lamellar grains, which reduces damage tolerance. We have developed a new class of TiAl-based alloys, called beta gamma, which would remove such barriers. Unlike existing gamma alloys, beta gamma alloys are designed such tha ...

  9. Ultra-Lightweight Nanocomposite Foams and Sandwich Structures for Space Structures Applications


    Space structures that are ultra-lightweight, and have gas barrier property, space durability, radiation resistance, EMI shielding, and high impact resistance are desirable to improve the reliability and provide a safe resting environment for astronauts and electronic equipment housing and protection. Some of the components currently in use such as stations or habitats use double-wall thick films w ...

  10. Spacesuit Sensing Data Display and Management System

    SBC: Zin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X403

    ZIN Technologies, Inc will breadboard an integrated electronic system for space suit application to acquire images, biomedical sensor signals and suit health & status data. The system will then process, display, store, transmit and manage the results under control of embedded firmware. A commercial off-the-shelf heads-up display which is applicable to space suit helmets will be the primary display ...
