  1. High-Frequency Flush Mounted Miniature LOX Fiber-Optic Pressure Sensor II

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T901

    Luna Innovations has teamed with the University of Alabama, Huntsville, to develop a miniature flush-mounted fiber-optic pressure sensor that will allow accurate, high-frequency high-pressure measurement of LOx and LH2. The Innovation of this proposed development is that the miniature flush-mounted fiber-optic pressure sensor is not intrusive, is intrinsically safe, and is a novel adaptation of p ...

  2. Advanced Fiber-Optic Instrumentation for Early Flight Fission Research

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T801

    By properly characterizing the thermo-mechanical activity within non-nuclear test articles, nuclear operation can be more accurately controlled and confidence in thermo-mechanical simulations will be high. However, the ability to characterize non-nuclear test core simulators is currently limited by the lack of instrumentation options available for measurements of parameters of interest such as tem ...

  4. Closed Loop Waste Processing Dryer (DRYER)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: T501

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a gravity-independent pasteurization and hot air drying process suitable for stabilization of ALS wet cabin waste, drying of crew laundry, water recovery from water-reprocessing brines and drying of food and biomass. This process uses an energy-efficient closed air-loop Heat Pump Desiccant dryer to remove moisture from wet starting material and a Porous ...

  5. An all MMIC Replacement for Gunn Diode Oscillators

    SBC: Virginia Diodes, Inc.            Topic: E104

    The objective of this Phase II project is to develop and demonstrate a compact and reliable oscillator technology for the frequency band from 100 ? 250 GHz for use in terahertz local oscillators and transmitters. The new oscillators rely on MMIC technology that is reliable and robust, offers the best overall performance and will be suitable for volume production and commercialization. These oscill ...

  6. Multi-Use Non-Intrusive Flow Characterization System (FCS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A405

    The product of the Phase II effort will be a Multi-Use Non-Intrusive Flow Characterization System (FCS) for densified, normal boiling point, and two-phase cryogenic flows, capable of accurately measuring several fluid parameters in real-time. Cryogenic fluids are ubiquitous in the aerospace industry; however, adequate flow instrumentation to support terrestrial, in-space, and planetary operations ...

  7. Micro-Slit Collimators for X-ray/Gamma-ray Imaging

    SBC: Mikro Systems, Inc.            Topic: S101

    Building on the success of our Phase I efforts, Mikro Systems, Inc. (MSI) proposes to advance the state-of-the-art in high resolution, high-aspect-ratio X-ray/gamma-ray collimator fabrication by reducing slit pitch by a factor of ~2, from 35 microns to 20 microns, using an innovative hybrid micro-machining technology. Fine grids having high-aspect-ratio (>50:1) and made from dense materials are ...

  8. Heated Thermoplastic Fiber Placement Head for NASA Langley Research Center

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A404

    Reduced-mass polymer composite materials are crucial to the success of aerospace systems for reducing vehicle weight. But, composite material adoption is inhibited because the autoclave consolidation required is prohibitively expensive for the large tanks and skins contemplated in the Next Generation Launch Technology (NGLT) Program. To remedy this, NASA-LaRC has been developing cost-effective, ...

  9. Airport Configuration Prediction

    SBC: Metron Aviation, Inc.            Topic: A301

    Airport configuration is a primary factor in various airport characteristics such as arrival and departure capacities and terminal area traffic patterns. These characteristics, in turn, are central to a variety of Air Traffic Management (ATM) decisions that in turn affect delays and efficiency in the National Airspace System (NAS). There is presently poor knowledge about the airport characterist ...

  10. Analytical and Simulation Framework for Performance Validation of Complex Systems

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A701

    Next-generation aerospace systems will require increased autonomy to modify system behavior based on changing mission requirements, environmental factors, and system performance. For example, intelligent systems have been employed to improve safety by adaptively compensating for unexpected failures or damage. Despite many successful demonstrations of autonomous and intelligent control laws in simu ...
