  4. Low SWaP-C FAA Compliant UAV Navigation

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: A202

    NASA is responsible for breakthrough research to assure that adding UAS to the US Airspace is safe to both manned and unmanned aircraft. The FAA has made new rules that restrict small consumer and commercial UAS from operating beyond line of sight and over 500 feet in altitude but present day UAS controllers do not enforce these rules in hardware, and manual pilots cannot assure compliance with p ...

  5. Differential Terahertz Imaging Methods for Enhanced Detection of Subsurface Features, Flaws, and Damage

    SBC: PICOMETRIX, LLC            Topic: H1302

    Picometrix proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of using differential time domain terahertz imaging methods to enhance the contrast and detectability of features such as kissing disbonds and cracks that in conventional THz imaging only weakly reflect or scatter the THz pulses. The goal of the project is to develop methods of shearographic loading of the samples, and use the penetrating THz pul ...

  6. Agile Etalon Filter for Differential Absorption LIDAR

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: S101

    Modern sensing systems often are required to pick out a very specific wavelength in a sea of other light (such as in daylight), making precise optical filtering a vital part of many sensing systems. Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) plans to design, build and test an agile, frequency-tunable Fabry-Perot interferometer (etalon) for use as an optical filter of background light as part of a Differ ...

  9. Tailored, Extensible, Automated Mastery Measurement for Actionable Teaching Evaluation (TEAMMATE)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N152108

    We propose to create TEAMMATE, a system that can give individual instructor trainees Tailored, Extensible, Automated Mastery Measurement for Actionable Teaching Evaluation. TEAMMATE will combine low-cost, COTS sensors like a camera and microphone with intelligent software to assess multiple key aspects of verbal and nonverbal communication. Like a peer observer in civilian teacher training, TEAMMA ...

  10. High Rate, Long Cycle Life Lithium Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: Navitas Advanced Solutions Group, LLC            Topic: N152093

    Low cost and high capacity make lithium sulfur batteries (LSB) the next generation of lithium ion batteries. Practical application of LSBs remains limited by low utilization of sulfur and fast capacity fading of sulfur cathodes. The root causes are poor electronic conductivity of the cathode combined with high solubility of intermediate polysulfide products formed during cycling. To overcome these ...
