  3. Atmospheric Aerosol Analysis using Lightweight Mini GC

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: S108

    The major components of manmade aerosols are created by the burning of coal and oil. Aerosols are recognized to significantly impact the climate through their effects on solar and terrestrial radiation. Accurate speciation and measurement of aerosol composition is an important first step in understanding and managing these pollutants. This Phase II proposal continues development of a small, port ...

  4. An Infrared Fiber-Optic Raman Sensor for Field Detecting of Organic Biomarkers

    SBC: Crystal Research, Inc.            Topic: S109

    The search for organics on Mars remains a key objective for future missions. However current instruments for detailed organic analysis require complex sample handling and can process only a limited number of samples. To allow for rapid sample characterization, the in situ non-destructive Raman detection technique is a highly desirable sensing tool for both qualitative and quantitative analysis. ...

  5. Smart Adaptive Flight Effective Cue (SAFE-Cue)

    SBC: SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A109

    To enhance aviation safety, numerous adaptive control techniques have been developed to maintain aircraft stability and performance in the presence of failures or damage. Flight evaluations of various adaptive controllers conducted by NASA and others have shown great promise. In some cases unfavorable pilot-vehicle interactions including pilot-induced oscillations have occurred. Susceptibility to ...

  6. Real-Time Methods for Adaptive Suppression of Adverse Aeroservoelastic Dynamics

    SBC: SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A107

    Adverse aeroservoelastic interaction is a problem on aircraft of all types causing repeated loading, enhanced fatigue, undesirable oscillations and catastrophic flutter. Traditionally, to suppress adverse aeroservoelastic interaction, notch and/or roll off filters are used in the primary flight control system architecture. This solution has pitfalls; rigid body performance is degraded due to resul ...

  7. 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 ...
