  1. Dust Mitigation for the Lunar Surface

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X502

    The lunar surface is, to a large extent, covered with a dust layer several meters thick. Known as lunar regolith, it has been produced by meteorite impacts since the formation of a solid lunar surface billions of years ago. The regolith, while promising as a future building material for lunar installations, also poses a hazard in the form of dust clouds being generated by all forms of gas expans ...

  2. Flash3D EDL Sensor Technology Advancement

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: S501

    3D Flash LIDAR is ideal for determining real-time spacecraft trajectory, speed, orientation, and range to the planet surface, as well as evaluating potential hazards at the landing site. The "framing camera" nature, of 3D Flash LIDAR systems, makes them well suited as hazard avoidance sensors for EDL. The Phase II effort seeks to improve the range precision of the existing TigerEyeTM 3D Flash LI ...

  4. Composite Matrix Systems for Cryogenic Applications


    As an alternative material to aluminum-lithium, cryotanks developed from fiber reinforced composites can offer significant weight savings in applications for fuel containment of liquid oxygen and hydrogen. For composite materials to be accepted and utilized in these structures, they must be resistant to microcracking. It is the objective of this work to develop a matrix system for aerospace compos ...

  5. Laser Ablation- Optical Cavity Isotopic Spectrometer (LAOCIS)

    SBC: Applied Spectra, Inc.            Topic: S109

    We propose the detailed conceptual development of a device for analyzing key isotopic composition in surface materials without sample preparation. We will combine absorption spectroscopy with laser induced vaporization of solid samples for high-resolution isotopic measurements. An immediate focus is on Mars but our concept is also highly germane to other applications relevant to bio- and geochemic ...

  6. Regenerators for Liquid Hydrogen Cryocoolers

    SBC: ATLAS SCIENTIFIC            Topic: X701

    Future NASA exloration, planetary and astrophysics missions will require various enhancements in multi-stage cryocoolers. These include increased efficiency, reduced vibration and reductions in overall system mass and power consumption. For the small coolers required, pulse tube and Stirling coolers offer the best opportunities. At present, the efficiency of these coolers is limited by the effecti ...

  7. Small Space Platform Enhanced Internet Protocol Stack Device

    SBC: Broadata Communications, Inc.            Topic: S401

    Wireless communication of small, nano and micro satellites will play a vital role to NASA mission and marketability of the satellite. The use of an Internet-based protocol, especially TCP/IP, can provide seamless network command and control continuity between terrestrial and space-based platforms and environments, as well as between distributed ground and space stations. However, long propagation ...

  8. Avionics for Scaled Remotely Operated Vehicles

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: A109

    The use of UAS's in the military and the commercial field has grown tremendously over the last few years and is set to explode over next several. An open-architecture avionics system that utilizes standard communication interfaces and allows for rapid reconfiguration would be an attractive addition to the UAS market. CTSi is proposing development of such a product in phase II that provides a full ...

  9. Electronics Modeling and Design for Cryogenic and Radiation Hard Applications

    SBC: CoolCAD Electronics            Topic: X103

    We are developing CAD tools, models and methodologies for electronics design for circuit operation in extreme environments with a focus on very low temperature and radiation effects. These new tools will help enable NASA to design next generation electronics especially for planetary projects including the Europa Jupiter System Mission. The new models and tools will be directly incorporated into in ...
