  1. Switching Fabric Based on Multi-Level LVDS Compatible Interconnect

    SBC: Advanced Science and Novel Technology            Topic: E203

    Switching fabric (SF) is the key component of the next generation of back plane interconnects. Low power, TID and SEU resistant and high bandwidth upgradeable communication between computer nodes are of utmost importance for future NASA missions. The current state off-the-art binary SF interconnect architectures have high power consumption and latency due to the necessity to perform internal data ...

  2. An Advanced Light Weight Recuperator for Space Power Systems

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: S404

    Closed Brayton Cycle (CBC) space power system is one of the most efficient energy conversion technologies for nuclear and solar electric propulsion. The recuperator is critical to enhance CBC efficiency. An advanced light weight recuperator was proposed to significantly reduce the mass (up to 70%) of the State-of-Art (SOA) metallic recuperator and to improve its performance by using advanced high ...

  3. Aircraft Based Imaging Probe for the Study of Icing Environments

    SBC: ARTIUM TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A102

    Icing environments are of great concern in commercial and military aviation. An aircraft-based, imaging probe is being proposed for the reliable and accurate measurement of liquid water content (LWC) and droplet size distributions in environments variously referred to as freezing rain, freezing drizzle, supercooled drizzle drops, and supercooled large drops (SLD). The innovative aspect of the prop ...

  4. High-Efficiency, Low-Temperature Regenerators for Cryocoolers

    SBC: ATLAS SCIENTIFIC            Topic: S204

    Future NASA 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 effectiveness of ...

  8. Ullage Compatible Optical Sensor for Monitoring Safety Significant Malfunctions

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: A102

    Significant emphasis has been placed on aircraft fuel tank safety following the TWA Flight 800 accident in July 1996. Upon investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) determined that the explosion of the center wing tank (CWT) resulted most likely from ignition of the flammable fuel/air mixture. The growing concern of aircraft fuel tank safety has taken an added dimension in t ...

  9. Numerical Algorithms for Steady and Unsteady Multi-Disciplinary Simulation of Flight Vehicles

    SBC: Intelligent Aerodynamics            Topic: T201

    Industry is driven by the cost of man-power and time to market, and is still awaiting a versatile and reliable multi-disciplinary analysis code. The proposed JFLO software suite addresses many aspects that are still not totally resolved in current state-of- the-art CFD. It will enable optimal designs as well as the multi-disciplinary application of CFD for digital flight. The key elements of JFLO ...

  10. Multi-Agent Prognostics Health and Usage Monitoring (Multi-PHUM)

    SBC: Intelligent Inference Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The goal of Phase I study was to investigate advanced pattern recognition techniques for use in fault diagnosis. Three individual experts have been developed based on Auto Associative Neural Networks (E-AANN), Kohonen Self Organizing Maps (KSOM), and the Radial Basis Function based Clustering (RBFC) algorithms. We have used a Matlab Simulink model of a Chiller system to test our algorithms. The se ...
