  1. Novel Supercomputing Approaches for High Performance Linear Algebra Using FPGAs

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: S802

    We propose to develop novel FPGA-based algorithmic technology that will enable unprecedented computational power for the solution of large sparse linear equation systems. In Phase I, we will develop a prototype of a non-von-Neumann linear equation solver equipped with our technology, and demonstrate an intermediate milestone for its operational speedup and performance gains using at least two of t ...

  3. Reprogrammable Radiation Tolerant Secure Network Access Module

    SBC: Aeronix, Inc.            Topic: O105

    Communications security (COMSEC) is essential to satellite communications. Its role continues to grow as the available bandwidth expands to meet the ever increasing strategic and tactical data requirements of the 21st century. NASA's exploration of planetary surfaces will require a communication architecture that supports operational capabilities in which assets can communicate seamlessly and sec ...

  4. Rigidized Deployable Lifting Brake for Atmospheric Entry

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: S704

    Aerobraking to reduce velocity for planetary capture and landing has long been assumed for use on Mars missions because Mars has an atmosphere, and the use of aerobraking minimizes the amount of propellants required from the Earth's surface. For Mars exploration missions, where large quantities of equipment will be required, an aerobrake that is adequate for the size and amount of equipment will n ...

  5. Flexible Transpiration Cooled Thermal Protection System for Inflatable Atmospheric Capture and Entry Systems

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: X704

    Andrews Space, Inc. proposes an innovative transpiration cooled aerobrake TPS design that is thermally protective, structurally flexible, and lightweight. This innovative design will meet launch volume constraints and satisfy terminal aerobraking requirements. The approach will focus on transpiration cooling of a flexible material and employs preceramic polymers and active filler technologies as ...

  6. Vacuum-Compatible Multi-Axis Manipulator/Machining Center for Long-Duration Space Missions

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA has many needs for maintenance and repair technologies for long-duration human space missions. We propose to develop a compact, portable, vacuum-compatible, multi-axis Manipulator/Machining Center (M/MC) to satisfy many of NASA's needs. Our M/MC will provide complex manipulation during: layer-additive manufacturing; collection of geometric data for reverse-engineering; real-time non-destruc ...

  7. Electrospray Collection of Airborne Contaminants

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: X301

    In stark contrast to current stagnation-based methods for capturing airborne particulates and biological aerosols, our demonstrated, cost-effective electrospray technology employs an entirely different approach based on the remarkable effectiveness of small, highly charged liquid droplets formed from an electrospray source to "getter" both particles and polar molecules dispersed in a gas. Less cap ...

  8. Closed-Loop Pure Oxygen Static Feed Fuel Cell for Lunar Missions

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: X803

    In order to address the NASA lunar mission, DESC proposes to develop a proton exchange membrane (PEM) closed-loop pure oxygen fuel cell for application to lunar surface exploration, building upon DESC's expertise and fundamental demonstrations in closely related technology. Building upon the recent NASA SBIR Phase II and Navy SBIR Phase I work, the static feed URFC hardware will be converted for ...

  9. Physics-Based Pneumatic Hammer Instability Model

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: X702

    The objective of this project is to develop a physics-based pneumatic hammer instability model that accurately predicts the stability of hydrostatic bearings operating in a turbulent, compressible fluid. In phase 2, the rig will be fabricated and assembled, design of experiment will be executed. The empirical data will be used to determine if a particular variable, or input parameter, was a cont ...

  10. High Power Compact Single-Frequency Volume Bragg Er-Doped Fiber Laser

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: S602

    The purpose of this NASA SBIR Phase I proposal is to develop the prototype of a compact single-frequency mode – one longitudinal and one transverse mode – laser oscillator (SFM) using a pulse pumped Er-doped multimode fiber as an active element inserted in the external cavity. The main feature of the proposed design is the use of volume transmitting or reflecting Bragg gratings for longitudinal ...
