  1. Observation Platform for Dynamic Biomedical and Biotechnology Experiments using the ISS Light Microscopy Module

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O303

    The objective of the research is the completion of an observation platform for the ISS Light Microscopy Module (LMM) as it currently resides on the U.S. Fluids Integration Rack (FIR). In its current configuration the LMM accommodates a Contained Bubble Experiment, and it has no substage illuminator and limited epi-illumination. There is a need for future use of the LMM in more versatile fluids a ...

  2. Radiation Hard Electronics for Advanced Communication Systems

    SBC: ICS LLC            Topic: O102

    Advanced reconfigurable/reprogrammable communication systems will require use of commercial sub 100 nm electronics. Legacy radiation tolerant circuits fail to provide Single Event Upset (SEU) immunity at speeds greater than 500 MHz. New base level logic circuits are needed to provide SEU immunity for high speed circuits afforded by sub 100 nm technology. A completely new circuit and system appr ...

  3. Life Science Research Sample Transfer Technology for On Orbit Analysis

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O302

    Traditionally spaceflight life science experiments require the return of samples to earth for analysis, which is frequently a challenge to the success of investigations. Even with more analytical instruments on ISS, conditions do not facilitate the transfer of liquid samples from experimental devices to analytical devices. In response to the science community's call for on-orbit analyses, Tec ...

  4. Multi-Specimen Variable-G Facility for Life and Microgravity Sciences Research

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O302

    Techshot, Inc. proposes to develop a Multi-specimen Variable-G Facility (MVF) for life and microgravity sciences research. The MVF incorporates a generic multi-specimen sample holder which can be accessed on-orbit, allowing data to be obtained in real-time. Candidate specimens accommodated by the MVF include various cells (e.g. for culturing), aquatics, plants, algae, and invertebrate organisms. ...

  5. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  6. Spectral LES/FMDF for Simulation of Turbulent Combustion Interaction in High Speed Flow on Unstructured Grids

    SBC: Enabling Energy Systems            Topic: OSD10T001

    The focus of this project is on large-eddy simulation (LES) of high-speed turbulent reacting flows. The Enabling Energy Systems (EES) Inc., has assembled a well-experienced team of experts to tackle all the main issues involved in modeling of such complex flows. The members of this team are proposing several innovative ideas and have a long history of working together with complementary expertise. ...

  7. Digital Flight Gloves

    SBC: Wolf Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF103029

    ABSTRACT: This program will develop lightweight, comfortable, instrumented flight gloves which enable the wearer to communicate via electronic messages that capture and represent gestures and actions made using the hands and arms. This capability allows for typing reports, issuing commands, and conveying other information by moving the fingers and arms in the air. Gestures can be used to produc ...

  8. Variable-Fidelity Toolset for Dynamic Thermal Modeling and Simulation of Aircraft Thermal Management System (TMSs)

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF103208

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of the proposed effort is to develop a variable-fidelity transient thermal management toolset. Particular emphasis will be given to vapor cycle components with two phase flow analysis capability in the Phase I with expansion to additional components and hardware validation in the Phase II. The toolset will be designed in a modular, drag and drop library in Matlab ...

  9. Stochastic Reliability Metrics for Damage Characterization Based on Parametric and Voxel-Based Estimation Algorithms

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF112130

    ABSTRACT: To achieve the objectives of condition-based maintenance plus prognosis (CBM+), and realize its potential, the location and size of damage at any length scale, e.g., either a crack or a microstructural perturbation, needs to be determined with statistical metrics to feed prognostic reasoners and risk assessments. Previous work by Victor Technologies has focused on developing estimation ...

  10. High Performance, Ultra Low Power SPA-1 ASIC for Space Plug-and-Play Avionics

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF093082

    ABSTRACT: The Space Plug-and-play Avionics (SPA) initiative is designed to improve the ability of the US military to respond to rapidly changing operational needs by creating, integrating, and launching a new spacecraft in less than one week. This would provide major benefits to war fighters on the ground, in the sky, and at sea. SPA-1 ASICs using I2C as the transport interface will likely be t ...
