  2. On-Line Flutter Prediction Tool for Wind Tunnel Flutter Testing using Parameter Varying Estimation Methodology

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A204

    ZONA Technology, Inc. (ZONA) proposes to develop an on-line flutter prediction tool using the parameter varying estimation (PVE) methodology, called the PVE Toolbox, to ensure the flight safety during the flight flutter test and to prevent the damage to the wind tunnel hardware from the structural failure of the flutter model during wind tunnel flutter test. This tool can be applied to rapidly ide ...

  4. Embedded Data Acquisition Tools for Rotorcraft Diagnostic Sensors

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: A209

    Ridgetop's innovation addresses the need for improved capabilities for detecting wear in the drive gears inside helicopter gearboxes. Rotorcraft drive trains must withstand enormous pressure while operating continuously in extreme temperature and vibration environments. Captive components, such as planetary and spiral bevel gears, see enormous strain but are not accessible to fixed instrument ...

  5. GaN Bulk Growth and Epitaxy from Ca-Ga-N Solutions

    SBC: The IIIAN Company, LLC            Topic: O107

    The innovations proposed here are Ka-band (38 GHz) group III-nitride power FETs and the dislocation density reducing epitaxial growth methods (LPE) needed for their optimal performance and reliability.Ka-band power transistors with>60% Power Added Efficiency (PAE) are not commercially available. The primary limitations to their manufacture are lack of mature process technology at major GaN foun ...

  6. High-Speed, Low-Power ADC for Digital Beam Forming (DBF) Systems

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: S102

    In Phase 1, Ridgetop Group designed a high-speed, yet low-power silicon germanium (SiGe)-based, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to be a key element for digital beam forming (DBF) systems that will be used in NASA's future radar applications. The ADC will employ a novel combination of time interleaving, high-speed silicon-germanium BiCMOS technology and low-power techniques, such as the doub ...

  7. High Power Room Temperature Terahertz Local Oscillator

    SBC: Desert Beam Technologies, LLC            Topic: S104

    The motivation of the proposed SBIR is to develop, demonstrate and commercialize a compact, low-mass, high output power (1-10 milliwatt), tunable source of CW THz radiation operating at room temperature. The source will be useful both as a narrow band frequency stable sources for driving heterodyne receivers at key frequencies between 1 and 5 THz (1.4, 1.9, 2.7, 4.7 etc..) or for laboratory source ...

  8. Integrated Sublimator Driven Coldplate for use in Active Thermal Control System

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X205

    The original Sublimator Driven Coldplate (SDC) design sought to provide significant mass savings over a traditional pumped fluid loop by combining the functions of a cold plate and a sublimator and eliminating the fluid loop (Leimkuehler, et. al., "Design of a Sublimator Driven Coldplate Development Unit," 2008-01-2169). The target application was to provide heat rejection for the ascent ...

  9. Contaminant Robust System for Oxygen Production from Lunar and Martian Resources

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X301

    Extended duration missions to the Moon and Mars will require the use of In-situ resources to generate propellants and life support consumables. Many of the processes for in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) produce water, along with a variety of acid gases and other water soluble contaminants. Paragon proposes to develop membrane technology to separate water vapor from contaminants in the ISRU sy ...

  10. Flight Dynamic Simulation with Nonlinear Aeroelastic Interaction using the ROM-ROM Procedure

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A207

    ZONA Technology, Inc. proposes to develop an integrated flight dynamics simulation capability with nonlinear aeroelastic interactions by combining a flight dynamics model and an add-on nonlinear aeroelastic solver in a Simulink environment. This nonlinear aeroelastic solver is generated by interacting a nonlinear structural Reduced Order Model (ROM) with a Neural-Network-based (NN-based) aerodyna ...
