  1. Automation of Health Management, Troubleshooting and Recovery in Lunar Outpost

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X101

    The overall Phase-II goal is to develop the technologies and tools that can aid the automation of operation by providing intelligent decision support in situations when a mission plan needs alteration due to an event(s). The effort targets not only developing the algorithms, but also to implement them on QSI's TEAMS platform; this will transition the technologies into a useful tool for the A4 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Novel Catalytic Reactor for CO2 Reduction via Sabatier Process

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: X201

    A novel short contact time Microlith Sabatier reactor system for CO2 reduction offers a significant advance in support of manned spaceflight. Compared to current and prospective alternatives (including microchannels), the reactor will be much smaller and lighter, more energy and resource efficient, and more durable. In the spacecraft cabin atmosphere revitalization system (ARS), the utilization o ...

  4. Nanowire Photovoltaic Devices

    SBC: Firefly Technologies            Topic: T301

    Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes developing a space solar cell having record efficiency exceeding 40% (AM0) by the introduction of nanowires within the active region of the current limiting sub-cell. The introduction of these nanoscale features will enable realization of an intermediate band solar cell (IBSC), while simultaneously increasing the effective ...

  5. Hydrogen Recovery System

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: T1001

    Rocket test operations at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC) result in substantial quantities of hydrogen gas that is flared from the facility and helium gas that is vented. One way to save on the cost of test operations is to recover these gases using an electrochemical system. This Hydrogen Recovery System (HRS) selectively removes hydrogen from the mixed stream, leaving behind high-value helium. ...

  6. Probabilistic Remaining Useful Life Prediction of Composite Aircraft Components

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: A112

    A composite fatigue damage assessment and risk informed prognosis toolkit will be developed by enhancing and integrating existing solution modules within a probabilistic analysis framework. This tool will for the first time be able to address concurrently both microcracking induced stiffness degradation and cyclic loading induced delamination crack growth without remeshing. A physics-based determi ...

  7. Laser Stethoscope for Use in Noisy Spacecraft Environments

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: X1201

    Auscultation, or listening to internal sounds made by the body of a patient, is an important tool in medical diagnostics. Heart, lung, intestine, and circulatory function can be assessed through careful listening. There are numerous situations, however, where the faint sounds collected using an ordinary stethoscope are overwhelmed by ambient noise. Such is the case in spacecraft, where room is ...

  8. Automation for Vehicle and Crew Operations

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X601

    Modern space systems such as the International Space Station (ISS) and the proposed Constellation vehicles and habitats are complex entities with hundreds of thousands of individual telemetry items. Monitoring the health of these systems, troubleshooting their faults, developing maintenance plan and schedule, and aiding to restore system functionality are key tasks that flight controllers must per ...

  9. Adaptive Linear Parameter Varying Control for Aeroservoelastic Suppression

    SBC: MUSYN Inc            Topic: A107

    Adaptive control offers an opportunity to fulfill present and futureaircraft safety objectives though automatedvehicle recovery while maintaining performanceand stability requirements in the presence of unknown orvarying operating environment.Future aircraft are a natural application of adaptive control. Theseaircraft will be more fuel efficient, have longer operating ranges thoughmore flexible ai ...

  10. Optoelectronic Infrastructure for RF/Optical Phased Arrays

    SBC: ODIS , Inc.            Topic: O101

    Optoelectronic integrated holds the key to higher performance, reduced mass and radiation-hard space systems. A special need is increased flexibility of phased arrays for communication and detection. Currently RF arrays use ferrite waveguide elements for phase shifting which are both bulky and lossy with a phase shift limit of 360º . Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) arrays currently use a s ...
