  1. Modular Adaptable RocketEngine for Vehicle Launch(MAREVL)

    SBC: BLUSHIFT AEROSPACE, INC.            Topic: Z9

    bluShift Aerospace is developing fully modular hybrid rocket motors, referred to as MAREVLs (Modular Adaptable Rocket Engine for Vehicle Launch). Having a modular hybrid rocket motor will allow bluShift and other organizations to rapidly develop various launch vehicles for a micro satellite (CubeSat) launch fleet. There are two innovative fundamental ideas behind bluShiftrsquo;s MAREVL: Modularity ...

  2. Optimization of the Manufacturing Parameters for the Assembly of Protein-Based Retinal Implants in Microgravity

    SBC: LAMBDAVISION, INC.            Topic: H8

    LambdaVision developed a protein-based retinal implant to restore vision to the millions of people who are blinded by retinal degenerative diseases, including retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration. Preclinical evaluation of the technology, including ex vivo extracellular recording experiments and in vivo surgical development, demonstrated that we are able to reproducibly stimul ...

  3. Information Hedging from Sensing to Cognition to ensure Coherent Decision Making

    SBC: nodein            Topic: A2

    Maintaining consistent information flow between abstraction layers, from sensing to cognition, to ensure consistent decision-making is difficult. We are proposing an entirely new data structure, based on hypergraphs, to solve this problem. These hypergraph data structures will be developed in a domain specific language known as NodeLab and serve as a unified knowledge representation that can accep ...

  4. Model Based Data Integration and Fault Management (FM) Architecture Design Trade Studies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    NASA uses a variety of tools to conduct its FM activities. However, these tools are varied and disjoint, and require manual intervention to transfer data from the output of one tool to the input of another. This process is tedious, error-prone and scales poorly for large, complex systems. In addition, these tools are often ldquo;silorsquo;edrdquo; to the singular functionality for which they were ...

  8. High Specific Power Primary Fuel Cell System

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: Z1

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes to develop a Primary Fuel Cell (PFC) System that will meet NASArsquo;s lunar mission target specifications of (i) high specific power (gt;2,000 W/kg), (ii) high current density (gt;200 mA/cm2), (iii) long service life (a final operational life of gt;10,000 hrs is targeted), and (iv) operability with H2/O2, CH4/O2, and other propellants.nbsp; The PFC system ...

  9. Autonomous Agent Cognitive Architectures for Human Exploration

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: H6

    Deep space human exploration missions present a number of challenges. The distance from Earth makes communication less reliable and mission management more complex, and places a greater burden on human crews. Managing the complexity of the various onboard systems, processes, and resources, including health systems, payloads, etc., will present new kinds of crew challenges and stresses not experien ...
