  1. Novel Aeroservoelastic Scaled Model Design, Fabrication, and Testing

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T15

    In Phase I we demonstrated the feasibility of a novel aeroservoelastic design approach for scaled model design, and demonstrated fabrication of the resulting designs as a ground test article.nbsp; The test article from Phase I successfully replicated the scaled structural dynamic behavior, and demonstrated the integration of an instrumentation backbone based on PCB technology which allows integrat ...

  2. Properties Investigation of High-MON Oxidizers and MMH Blends for Use in Deep Space Exploration

    SBC: Frontier Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T9

    The REFPROP program developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a widely-used database for industrial fluid properties, including propellants used for chemical rocket propulsion.nbsp; For deep space applications, low-temperature propellants are of particular interest but accurate fluid property data was scarce or unavailable to the industry.nbsp; Recently, NASA MSFC h ...

  3. Aperiodic Lattice Design Optimization for Multi-Functional Lightweight Aerospace Structures

    SBC: Phoenix Analysis and Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T3

    The primary innovation proposed is the development of a lattice design tool that combines concepts from topology and parameter optimization to generate lattice materials that are aperiodic in nature and do not require a priori definition of cell size. With Additive Manufacturing, we can now specify detail to a degree previously not possible. In the context of cellular materials, however, it is not ...

  4. Smallsat Swarm Sparse Aperture SAR for Recon and Surveillance (SSSASAfRaS)

    SBC: VisSidus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T4

    The goal of Phase II work is to further advance the TRL of the swarm coordination and control algorithms from the current estimated TRL 3 to a TRL 4-5. The technical objectives proposed for Phase II are divided into two broad categories that support the goal. One category includes continuation and refinement of the work performed in Phase I and the other category includes new work, some of which h ...

  5. Chip-Scale THz Generator

    SBC: NEXUS PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: T8

    We propose to revolutionize the field of frequency-domain THznbsp;spectrometers by developing ~5nbsp;cm3 wide-band spectrometer with improved frequency accuracy, resolution and stability. Integration will also provide significant SWaP-C advantage compared to present solutions allowing deployment in small spacecraft platforms and other applications where low SWaP is crucial.Compared to presently av ...

  6. Efficient CO2 and H2O Removal with Novel Adsorbentsfor Life Support Applications on Mars

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T6

    Phase II work will build upon results of Phase I investigations into the performance of cooperative adsorbents for life-support on Mars. The work will focus on the creating of a prototype EMU unit sized to support a single person (1 kg/day of CO2 removal. Tasks in support of this effort include in depth investigations of the role of water on CO2 adsorption mechanism. Improved pellet formulations w ...

  7. Integrated Photonic Filters for RF Signal Processing

    SBC: OEWAVES, INC.            Topic: T8

    In this Project, OEwaves Inc. and Georgia Tech propose to research and develop an RF photonic receiver front-end enabling microwave signal processing at a heterogeneously integrated photonic platform. In particular, we propose to develop a new technology for photonic microwave filters based on the new advances in silicon (Si)-based integrated photonics. In this endeavor, we will exploit the expert ...

  8. Highly Integrateable AI Modules for Planning, Scheduling, Characterization, and Diagnosis

    SBC: STOTTLER HENKE ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: T3

    We will extend our previous work to create artificial intelligence (AI) Reasoning Modules for planning, scheduling, characterization, machine learning, and fault detection/diagnosis/reconfiguration for spacecraft and their subsystems, each able to operate in standalone fashion or be easily integrated with one another to execute in a variety of computational environments, including in highly distri ...

  9. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: LUCID CIRCUIT, INC.            Topic: DTRA162006

    With the advent of high-density low-power sub-20nm technology processes and circuits with tens-of-billions of transistors, radiation-induced single-event effects present a new set of design challenges for terrestrial applications. Developing reliable single-event effect resilient microelectronics in these modern technology nodes is a resource and time-intensive endeavor that further requires valid ...

  10. Story Mode for Teaching Cross-Curricular Coding Projects

    SBC: CODESPARK, INC.            Topic: 91990019R0012

    In previous R&D, the developers created codeSpark Academy, a game that employs a visual and block-based approach with puzzles to teach coding skills to students ages 5 to 9 years old. codeSpark Academy is in widespread use in and out of schools around the world. In this project, the developers will expand storytelling creative tools within the existing game. The pretend-play scenarios will include ...
