  1. Magnetically Enhanced Vacuum Arc Thruster

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: S302

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation has demonstrated the feasibility of a new type of electric propulsion device dubbed the Magnetically Enhanced Vacuum Arc Thruster (MVAT). This thruster is itself a variant on the Vacuum Arc Thruster that has been demonstrated via a recently concluded Phase I SBIR contracts from NASA. The VAT was verified to be a throttleable low mass (ca. 150g) high efficiency ...

  2. Grid Computing for Commercial Applications

    SBC: 3dgeo Development Inc.            Topic: N/A

    3DGeo will implement a graphical user interface (GUI) built on top of the Globus Toolkit 3.0 (GT3) middleware and complying with the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) standard. This GUI will be a convenient interface for computational resource discovery, computational resource monitoring, and workflow submission to the Grid. These features will be built into 3DGeo?s Java-based INSP system - ...

  4. CFD-Based Multidisciplinary Analysis for Flight Vehicle Simulation and Control

    SBC: Advanced Engineering Solutions            Topic: N/A

    The ability to quickly estimate flight vehicle behavior in an operational environment is important since engineers from a variety of disciplines require accurate predictions in order to plan flight test experiments, expand aircraft operating envelopes safely, and have access to diagnostic methods when problems arise. STARS is the most comprehensive multidisciplinary finite element-based software f ...

  5. Development of a Rugged, Fuel Tank Compatible, Oxygen Concentration Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: A102

    The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to transfer proven sensor technology from the laboratory breadboard to a functional flight-ready prototype for installation in an aircraft fuel tank. In the Phase I effort, a novel spectroscopic technique was shown to be an effective method for measuring oxygen concentration in harsh environments with sufficient accuracy for use in an OBIGGS system. ...

  6. High Power Platform for the Stretched Lens Array

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: H310

    The Stretched Lens Array SquareRigger (SLA-SR) solar array is based on the combination of two cutting edge technologies, the SquareRigger solar array structure and the SLA optics/PV-blanket assembly. The combined SLA-SR system produces an extremely lightweight (>330 W/kg BOL near term and ~500 W/kg BOL mid term), high efficiency, high power (10kW to 100kW+), high voltage (100VDC to 1000VDC) and l ...

  7. New Structures for Large Sensor Array Platforms

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Second-order Augmentation of Lattice Trusses (SALT) is a unique configuration that promises to alleviate many constraints on the design of large deployable space structures, enabling more mass and packaging-efficient structures due to the effect of multi-tiered (higher-order structural hierarchy) latticing. In the Phase I SBIR study, ABLE Engineering performed analyses, design studies and testing ...

  8. Low Cost/Mass Electrostatically Clean Solar Array (ESCA) System

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ABLE ESCA designs use flight proven materials/processes to create an ideal ESCA system that yields low cost, low mass, high reliability, high power density, and is adaptable to any cell type, coverglass thickness, and panel contour. The successfully completed Phase 1 program has proven concept feasibility for two ABLE ESCA designs (baseline and optional technologies). These ESCA designs have b ...

  9. Gamma Detector Modular Assemblies for EXIST

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Energetic X-ray Imaging Survey Telescope (EXIST) is a proposed mission that aims to detect faint high energy X-ray sources in the energy range 10 - 600 keV. The concept for EXIST relies on an X-ray telescope imaging the entire sky each 95 min orbit. The core of the X-ray imaging telescope comprises approximately 8 square meters of pixilated Cd-Zn-Te (CZT) detectors, a technical feat never befo ...
