  1. Intelligent Control For Autonomous Remote Spacecraft

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We will apply the latest knowledge in learning control, adaptive control, and optimal control to develop a modular, state-of-the-art, adaptive, nonlinear, guidance, navigation, and control package for remote spacecraft. The system will incorporate planning and decision making modules to give the remote spacecraft on-line goal directed self-reliant behavior with a high degree of autonomy. At the hi ...

  2. A Mass-Reducing End-Plugging Scheme for the Gasdynamic Mirror Propulsion System

    SBC: Advent Engineering Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A very promising approach to a significant reduction of the mass of the gasdynamic mirror (GDM) fusion propulsion system is proposed. It makes use of field-reversal techniques whereby a rotating magnetic field is employed to induce an azimuthal current in the plasma, which in turn gives rise to the desired magnetic field at an appropriate plasma radius in the mirror region. This has the effect of ...

  3. A Novel Liquid Hydrogen/Oxygen Co-generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA¿s objective for affordable access to space requires inexpensive production of rocket fuel. The key to achieving this objective is the production of hydrogen, since hydrogen accounts for more than 80% of the fuel cost. TDA Research, Inc. (TDA), collaborating with Louisiana State University (LSU), proposes a novel hydrogen production method that offers significant advantages over conventiona ...

  5. Machine Learning for Record Linkage

    SBC: SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The World Wide Web of the future will contain significantly more information. It will be enabled to machine process the information stored allowing users to find information with less work. The adoption of standards like eXtensible Markup Language (XML)and the Resource Description Framework (RDF) on the WWW are significant steps to realize the vision of the concept of the

  6. Solid-fueled Micro Colloid Thruster

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T301

    Nanosatellites are receiving increased interest since they are proving reliable for surveillance, communication and other space missions. Also, the possibility of launching "constellations" of them offers unique capabilities for low-cost experimentation, sensing and communications in space. In comparison to larger spacecraft, their development time and costs have reduced and their launch costs a ...

  7. A Self-Regulating Freezable Heat Exchanger for Spacecraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T601

    A spacecraft thermal control system must keep the cabin (both air and its structure if manned) and electronic equipment within a narrow temperature range even though the environment may vary from very cold to warmer than room temperature. Since water is safe to use and an excellent coolant (other than its high freeze point and volumetric expansion during freeze), a water coolant loop often is use ...

  8. Intelligent Radiative Materials

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: T1002

    An opportunity to boost energy efficiency in homes and buildings exists through the design of functional radiative properties in glass and other building materials. Current surface materials ignore or take first-order approaches to complicated spectral behavior, leading to sub-optimal properties. The sensitivity of material properties to microscale surface structuring creates a design challenge ...

  9. Nonintrusive fiber interferometer for ablative TPS recession measurement

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The next generation of hypersonic and reentry vehicles being designed for the Department of Defense (DoD) applications will require advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS). While new TPS shields are under development, a key difficulty is the ability to predict and diagnose TPS performance. ElectroDynamic Applications (EDA) has been developing an optical diagnosticfor use during testi ...

  10. Resonant infrared pulsed laser ablation for the deposition of polymer and polymer composite films for conformal optical coating on plastic substrates

    SBC: AppliFlex LLC            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: This project will apply resonant infrared pulsed laser ablation techniques to deposit environmentally-durable, adherent and conformal anti-reflection (AR) coating on a plastic (polycarbonate) substrate. The proposed broadband AR coating is based on a multilayer architecture of low-refractive index polymer and high-refractive index polymer or polymer hybrid materials. High quality poly ...
