  1. Open|SpeedShop Ease of Use Performance Analysis for Heterogenious Processor Systems

    SBC: Argo Navis Technologies LLC            Topic: S501

    We propose building upon the modular extensible architecture and existing capabilities of Open|SpeedShop to provide seamless, integrated, heterogeneous processor performance analysis. The NVIDIA GPU and Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) processors are increasingly important at high performance computing (HPC) laboratories within NASA for use on NASA's high-end computing (HEC) projects because of th ...

  2. Generalized gUidance, Navigation & Control Architecture for Reusable Development (GUARD): Performance Evaluation in Relevant Operating Environments

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: H601

    In Phase I of this project, SSCI carried out initial development of the Generalized Guidance, Navigation & Control Architecture for Reusable Development (GUARD). The resulting framework is applicable across different Autonomous Rendezvous and Docking (AR&D) domains, and enables further development and testing of reusable GN&C software for such applications. GUARD is based on the key functional req ...

  3. Drag Identification & Reduction Technology (DIRECT) for Elastically Shaped Air Vehicles

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A304

    The Variable Camber Continuous Trailing Edge Flap (VCCTEF) concept offers potential improvements in the aerodynamic efficiency of aircraft through real time wing shaping. NASA and Boeing have been studying the suitability of this concept to address the drag reduction problem in aircraft with reduced-stiffness wings. However, reduced stiffness may lead to wing flutter. In addition, displacements of ...

  4. Integrated Computational System for Electrochemical Device Design and Simulation

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: Z104

    During the Phase I project, major portions of a base, open-source, easily extensible battery modeling system have been developed with a modern, modular architecture and methods. In addition to the new modules and architecture built by Illinois Rocstar, we have identified a number of available tools that fit well with our vision of the final ICED product. Open-source tools from the Oak Ridge Nation ...

  5. Next generation HgCdTe FPAs for high frame rate characterization of thermal protective systems

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: H701

    Typical existing infrared (IR) focal plane arrays (FPAs) have high spatial resolution over large areas due to their high pixel counts, however they can only continuously operate at frame rates below 50 kfps. Such FPAs could be redesigned to achieve MHz frame rates by redesigning the read-out integrated circuit (ROIC) and reducing the format. By reducing the pixel count and increasing the pixel s ...

  6. Vertical Lift by Series Hybrid Power

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: A106

    Multi-rotors (e.g. quad-copters) typically have direct electric drive, where the electric motor shaft is directly coupled to the propeller shaft. The benefit of this configuration is simple and high fidelity control. But electric drive for vertical lift typically relies on lithium polymer batteries for energy storage, and battery specific energy is extremely low compared to internal combustion fue ...

  7. Stochastic Robotic Simulation Tool

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: H601

    Energid Technologies proposes a game-theory inspired simulation tool for testing and validating robotic lunar and planetary missions. It applies Monte Carlo simulation within a multi-optimization environment tailored to the needs of NASA. Stochastic optimization is combined with randomized simulation to maximize multiple statistical measures of performance and calculate the parameters giving the e ...

  8. Hybrid Direct Drive PPU for Deep Space CubeSat Propulsion System

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: Z401

    Busek proposes to develop an innovative, hybrid direct-drive (HDD) Power Processing Unit (PPU) for CubeSat electric propulsion (EP) systems. The technological approach is an adaptation of a Busek patented technology, US patent number 8,550,405, entitled "Solar Powered Spacecraft Power System for a Hall Effect Thruster." This technology will immediately benefit the deep space 6U CubeSat currently b ...

  9. Robotic Arm for Assistive Free-Flyers

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: Z501

    Energid Technologies proposes a lightweight kinematically redundant robot arm and software toolkit to extend the capabilities of Assistive Free-Flyers (AFFs). The arm will leverage Energid's existing design actuated with modified smart servos to reduce cost and weight and improve performance. A unique feature of the arm is universal end-of-arm-tooling interface that provides extensibility through ...

  10. 360-Degree Analysis Engine for Autonomous NAS Operations and Control

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A301

    NASA researchers have been studying ground-based conflict detection and resolution for at least ten years. Under the tool proposed herein, these researchers will be able to evaluate both the performance impact and the environmental impact. The environmental impact is important for obtaining approval to move the ground-based conflict detection and resolutions algorithms to higher Technology Readi ...
