  1. Accelerating Communication-Intensive Applications via Novel Data Compression Techniques

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: S501

    The traditional view of arithmetic operations dominating the computational cost of numerical algorithms has changed. As performance of new processors increases, we are moving into a new reality in which data movement is expensive and operations are becoming nearly free. In Phase I we discovered a new theory of data compression with unprecedented capability to reduce data movement in distributed HP ...

  2. Low Gravity Drug Stability Analyzer

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: H1205

    The goal of this proposed program through Phase III is to build a space-worthy Drug Stability Analyzer that can determine the extent of drug degradation. It will be able to monitor the drug active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and its degradation product concentrations as a function of time, as well as determine if a drug is suitable for use. This will be accomplished by designing and building ...

  3. Fault Management Technologies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S505

    Given that SysML is becoming a standard for model-based systems engineering and Integration (SE&I), system health management (SHM)-related models will either be done in SysML, or be done outside of SysML but enabled by conversion, mapping, and traceability of information across SysML and SHM models. Given that current implementations of SysML are not particularly useful to perform analyses, and th ...

  4. Diagnosis-Driven Prognosis for Decision Making

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A104

    One cannot build a system-level Prognosis and Health Management (PHM) solution by cobbling together a bunch of existing prognostic techniques; it will have a very high rate of false-positive indications. On the other hand, if a system-level health management solution could identify the individual degradations and indictors associated with those degradations, and thereby decouple the problem into s ...

  5. High Temperature Sensors Using Vertically Aligned ZnO Nanowires

    SBC: HARP ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: A308

    NASA requires instrumentation technologies that can be applied to measure flow under extreme temperatures where traditional sensing methodologies cannot be used. The proposed Phase II SBIR research effort will seek to create wall shear sensors that can be applied to measure signals at temperatures in excess of 1,100

  6. Superconducting Electric Boost Pump for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: H203

    A submersible, superconducting electric boost pump sized to meet the needs of future Nuclear Thermal Propulsion systems in the 25,000 lbf thrust range is proposed. The proposed solution combines active electronic speed control technology with state-of-the-art cavitation suppression techniques to meet the near-zero Net Positive Suction Head requirements with up to 50% vapor content and enables a h ...

  7. Advanced Technology MEMS-based Acoustic Array

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation            Topic: A302

    The Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation proposes a technological advancement of current state-of-the-art acoustic energy harvester for harsh environment applications. Due to the advancement of propulsion systems and increasing power requirements, the development of a renewable energy source is ideal to overcome the related issues seen in systems powered by batteries (limited lifespan, rechar ...

  8. Morphing Wing Design with an Innovative Three-Dimensional Warping Actuation

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: A301

    Advanced wing configurations where traditional control surfaces are replaced by dynamically controlled distribution of wing twist and/or camber can provide significant benefits to aircraft performance, such as reduced vibration and noise, increased fuel efficiency. Elimination of traditional control surfaces such as flaps can lead to smoother wing surfaces which are especially important in reducin ...

  9. Extreme Environment Ceramic-To-Metal Seal

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: S404

    The proposed Phase 1 program will demonstrate the feasibility of large ceramic to metal joints/seals that can tolerate extreme environments. The immediate application of the work is bonded sapphire viewports for a Venus probe. TvU's commercial viewport products have demonstrated that the pressure and temperature constraints of the surface of Venus will be met, while the use of materials appropri ...

  10. Regenerable Sorbent for Combined CO2, Water, and Trace-Contaminant Capture in the Primary Life Support System (PLSS)

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: H402

    The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space requires the development of regenerable life support systems. This proposal addresses the development of an integrated air-revitalization system for the space suit used in Extravehicular Activities (EVAs). The proposed innovations are: (1) a single CO2, trace-contaminant, and H2O management unit; (2) a single sorb ...
