The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. SMART Tape For Structural Health Monitoring of Rocket Engines

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: X601

    Acellent Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop a SMART Tape system that can be used to perform rapid non-destructive evaluation in real time and provide long-term monitoring of pressure vessels in liquid rocket engines. Based on Acellent's existing SMART Layer technology, this innovative system combines a sensor network, dedicated signal processing and data analysis software to allow for real-ti ...

  2. A Cryogenic Flow Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Technologies Group, Inc.            Topic: X605

    Based on the success of the phase I effort, Advanced Technologies Group, Inc. proposes the development of a Cryogenic Flow Sensor (CFS) for determining mass flow of cryogens in spacecraft propellant management. Current point sensor technology is incapable of determining high pressure, high flow rate cryogenic fluid quality and mass flow rate, and has proven to be inaccurate in attempting to rapid ...

  3. Novel Non-Intrusive Vibration Monitoring System for Turbopumps

    SBC: AI Signal Research, Inc.            Topic: X601

    ASRI proposes to develop an advanced and commercially viable Non-Intrusive Vibration Monitoring System (NI-VMS) which can provide effective on-line/off-line engine vibration monitoring capabilities without relying on intrusive key-phasor speed measurements. Many powerful vibration signature analysis techniques for engine-health monitoring rely on key-phasor signals to extract/enhance critical fau ...

  4. Prototyping a Rangeland Decision Support System

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: E401

    This proposal is submitted under the Innovative Tools and Techniques Supporting the Practical Uses of Earth Science Observations topic. We seek to create a prototype rangeland decision support system that links remote sensing based rangeland products, a soil biogeochemical model and web-based tools for data mining, data management and product visualization. The resulting decision support system wi ...

  5. High Energy, Low Temperature Gelled Bi-Propellant Formulation for Long-Duration In-Space Propulsion

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: X605

    The use of gelled propellants for deep space planetary missions may enable adoption of high performance (Isp-vac>360 sec) propellant combinations that do not require power-intensive heating and stirring cycles before firings, and whose handling and safety characteristics are close to stated goals of "green" propellants. Phase I focused on the ability to gel both halves of the propellant combinati ...

  6. Aeroelastic Simulation Tool for Inflatable Ballute Aerocapture

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: S102

    This project will develop a much-needed multidisciplinary analysis tool for predicting the impact of aeroelastic effects on the functionality of inflatable aeroassist vehicles in both the continuum and rarefied flow regimes. In this integrated multi-physics multi-disciplinary computing environment, high-fidelity modules for continuum and rarefied aerodynamics, stress, heat transfer, and computat ...

  7. Simulations of Unsteady Effects and Dynamic Responses in Complex Valve Systems


    Reliable diagnostic tools to support system health monitoring are critical both for liquid rocket experimental ground test facilities and flight systems. Here, flow induced instabilities can generate flow anomalies such as large scale pressure fluctuations that may couple with other system components and generate deleterious structural vibrations or lead to system malfunction as was evidenced in ...

  8. Algorithms and Software Architecture for the Production of Information Products From LIDAR

    SBC: Diamond Data Systems            Topic: E303

    Diamond Data Systems (DDS) proposes the development of a new advanced architecture, algorithms and software to support the end-to-end processing of LIDAR data to derive useful information products such as Digital Elevation Models (DEM). The approach is innovative in three ways. First, it proposes a complete end-to-end system instead of a solution that addresses only a single step of the complex ...

  10. To Ensure the Integrity of the Cryogenic Propellant Depot Tank Within the Expected Radiation and Space Debris Environment

    SBC: Hypercomp Engineering, Inc            Topic: X204

    HyPerComp Engineering, Inc. (HEI) proposes to develop well characterized, structurally reliable filament wound composite pressure vessels for use in both cryogenic and radiation environment applications. The intent of the proposed effort is to develop the detailed pressure vessel performance characteristics that will result in "off the shelf' technology for high performance cryogenic/ radiation en ...
