  1. Flight Test Development of the X43A-LS Reusable Launch Vehicle


    Accurate Automation Corporation proposes a three-pronged effort to build on the Phase I program to develop technologies in support of the NASA Hyper-X program and the X-43 series of research vehicles (X-43A, X-43B, and X-43C). The data and technologies developed under the proposed Phase II program will also support the development and testing of future hypersonic vehicles and reusable launch vehic ...

  2. Carbon based aerogel composites for radiation shielding

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this phase I SBIR program, Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR) proposes the development of an innovative, co-curing fabrication process for composite structures with a carbon based aerogel material encapsulated by a polyethylene based composite for radiation shielding applications. The proposed technique will leverage the ACR?s experience with co-injecting highly viscous ceramic slurries int ...

  4. Thermochemical Energy Conversion Engine for Electricity Generation

    SBC: Ecotera Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA is interested in the development of highly advanced systems, subsystems and components to enable future robotic and manned missions. A key requirement for these challenging missions will be the development of high efficiency power conversion systems with increased power density. Ecotera Energy proposes an innovative gas turbine improvement, the Thermochemical Energy Conversion (TEC) engine, w ...

  5. FGM HfC/Sic Composites for RlV Leading Edge Applications

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Future RLV applications require high temperature, durable refractory composites capable of up to 4000?aF temperature use with multiple missions. Currently used technology for X-43A is highly limited in this regard. Thus a novel approach is proposed to alleviate this problem. It is based upon FGM porosity and FGM SiC/HfC coatings to address the thermal stress problem.

  6. Transparent Integration of SINDA/G into Patran

    SBC: Network Analysis, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to produce a transparent integration of SINDA/G into the MSC.Patran FEA modeling system. This product will be oriented towards both the beginning thermal analyst and the advanced SINDA user. The transparent integration will allow a new user to use advanced features involving convection, surface-to-surface radiation, heaters, and other advanced thermal features withou ...

  8. Robust Aeroservoelastic Toolbox for Nonlinear Data-Based Modeling and Analysis

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    ZONA Technology and the University of Florida propose an R&D effort to establish a Robust Aeroservoelastic Toolbox (RASET) with emphasis on nonlinear identification, modeling and analysis. The RASET will serve the next-generation flutterometer. The toolbox augments the current mu-method analysis with nonlinear operators so limit cycle oscillations (LCO) can be predicted. Several representations of ...

  9. Design Sensitivities of Response/Fatigue Life of Panels to Thermo-Acoustic Loads

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The design of the panels of future reusable launch vehicles will represent a particularly challenging task as these structural components will be subjected to some thermal effects, potentially severe random acoustic excitations and will support a complex thermal protection system (TPS). The structural dynamic behavior of the combined system is expected to display a significant nonlinearity arising ...

  10. Design-Oriented Aeroservoelastic ZAERO Capability for 3D Configuration Shape MDO

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Design-oriented steady and unsteady aerodynamic analysis tools for Aeroelastic / Aeroservoelastic evaluation lag significantly behind other multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) developments for aerospace vehicle design. In almost all MDO studies to date involving configuration shape optimization, dynamic Aeroelastic/Aeroservoelastic constraints were left out. Flutter, gust stresses, vibrati ...
