  2. GEOFF: Geo-location from Edges, Objects, Foundational data, and a Filter

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: NGA181007

    Ground vehicles with navigation capability (e.g., GPS) can index into foundation data (e.g., Google Maps) to gain situational awareness abouttheir surroundings. When GPS and RF navigation sources are degraded, maintaining situational awareness requires an alternative navigationsource. One alternative source is the foundation data itself. The data contain objects at known 3D locations, which projec ...

  3. Generalized Change Detection to Cue Regions of Interest

    SBC: FeatureX, Inc.            Topic: NGA181006

    Generalized change detection is a critical capability to mitigate the need for massive human inspection of the rapidly expanding volume ofglobal overhead satellite imagery. Current optical change detection approaches focus on fully specified systems to detect a predefined set ofchanges, and effective approaches for generalized change detection have not yet been demonstrated. We propose to build a ...

  4. Project Patchwork- Wirelessly Networked Structural Analysis Devices for Aircraft

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: A2

    Through this SBIR effort, NASA is looking for innovative technology to bolster its flight research capabilities. Particularly, NASA seeks the development of innovative measurement and data acquisition approaches. Mide through a past RIF BAA for Navair, developed a stand-alone high performance data logger for vibration/acceleration, pressure, and temperature. The device, dubbed the Slamstick X, w ...

  5. Bi2212 Superconductors for High-Power Density Motors for Aero Propulsion

    SBC: Solid Material Solutions, LLC            Topic: A1

    Future hybrid aircraft, such as NASA’s N3-X plan, will require all-superconducting electric motors and generators in order to achieve power density in excess of 10 kW/kg. Unlike the DC rotor, the stator must operate in AC mode, for example, from 0-0.5 T at 120 Hz, making it impossible to use high temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes due to their high losses in transient fields, requiring in ...

  6. Auralization of Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) in Urban Environments

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: A1

    The topic defines the problem as the development and demonstration of computationally efficient tools capable of modeling sound propagation in an urban environment for creating auralizations of UAM vehicles. The tools would be suitable for eventual integration with the NASA Auralization Framework (NAF).The topic requires a set of modules to be delivered which will integrate with existing NAF infr ...

  7. Redox Tolerant Cathode for Solid Oxide Electrolysis Stacks

    SBC: Oxeon Energy, LLC            Topic: H1

    OxEon Energy proposes a combination of materials and engineering solutions to demonstrate the reduction-oxidation (redox) stability of a solid oxide electrolysis cathode during start up and operation. The redox tolerant cathode material will reduce system complexity, tolerate flow upset conditions, and provide flexibility in space based systems without a man-in-the-loop.Solid oxide electrolysis st ...

  8. Electrochromic Laminates For Advanced Spacesuit Visors

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: H4

    NASA's Extravehicular Mobility Unit, or EMU, is a personal mini-spacecraft that comprises the space suit assembly and life support systems. The current EMU has a manually operated extravehicular visor assembly (EVVA) that provides protection from micrometeoroids and from solar ultraviolet and infrared radiation. For the integration of EVVA with NASA’s next generation space suits helmet bubbl ...

  9. Dehydration Resistant And Dimensionally Stable High Performance Membrane

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: H1

    In several technologies within NASA’s In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) systems, such as fuel cell, water electrolysis and gas/water separations etc., polymeric membranes, especially proton exchange membranes (PEM), play an important role. These membranes are generally hygroscopic, subject to swelling in the presence of humidity or water. When restrained membranes undergo a hydration/dehydrati ...

  10. Data Logger for Measuring Body Dynamics in Spaceflight Environment (MBISE)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: H12

    During dynamic events such as launch, ascent abort, atmospheric reentry, descent, and landing, crewmembers will experience significant inertial and vibrational loading. To this date, data has not been collected in flight. There is particular interest in the chest, neck, and head region, which are exceptionally sensitive areas. Quantifying the loading on the crewmembers will allow refined simula ...
