  1. Advanced Design Tools for Electrosail Propulsion Systems

    SBC: PARTICLE MATTERS, INC            Topic: T2

    The goal of this project is to develop a medium-fidelity, engineering level computational tool that will provide NASA researchers with an efficient instrument for testing, optimizing, and finalizing the E-Sail configuration, and further assist in the navigation and control design. The core of the tool is a computationally efficient parallel 3Dnbsp;Particle-In-Cell (PIC)nbsp;code. The relatively sl ...

  2. A New Oxygen Recovery Process to Reduce Waste from Propellant Tanks

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T2

    After landing, the lunar lander liquid oxygen tank may contain as much as 5% residual oxygen that is pressurized with helium. TDA Research proposes to develop an oxygen recovery module which separates the helium from the oxygen so that the remaining high purity oxygen can be readily supplied to life-support equipment and fuel cells. The oxygen recovery module uses an advanced sorbent that has a hi ...

  3. Autonomous Environmental Monitoring and Management Platform for Remote Habitats

    SBC: SPEC Sensors, LLC            Topic: T4

    An automated mobile air quality (AQ) sensor array will provide high quality environmental data within the confined physical parameters of a space habitat. Project results, including generated data, will be used to develop algorithms for artificial intelligence (AI) which will ultimately automate monitoring of experiments as well as life support systems on the International Space Station (ISS), the ...

  4. Autonomous In-space Assembly of Modular Structures

    SBC: ALTIUS SPACE MACHINES, INC.            Topic: T4

    The ESCHER interface is part of a larger concept working to enable swarms of robots to autonomously perform difficult construction tasks while minimizing the cost and complexity of doing so. The interface, designed by Altius for use on Virginia Tech#39;s FASER Lab robots, will leverage existing switchable electropermanent magnetnbsp;(EPM) technology and Altius custom geometries to provide a high h ...

  6. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  7. Data-Driven Modeling of Directed Energy Deposition (DED) for Defect-Free Builds using Real-Time Monitoring Approaches

    SBC: FORMALLOY TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: T12

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) will play a large role in the development for NASArsquo;s next generation of space flight systems. However, without a deeper understanding of various additive processes available, it is difficult to use the technologies reliably. In order to predict the results for dimensional accuracy, microstructure formation, and defect initiation points, FormAlloy and New Mexico Sta ...

  10. Gateway Management through Adaptive, Autonomous, Fault Identification & Diagnosis and Reconfiguration/Replanning/Rescheduling Optimization

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: T4

    The lunar Gateway is a lunar space station that will orbit the Moon in a highly elliptical Near-Rectilinear Halo Orbit (NRHO). The Gateway is envisioned as a multi-purpose spacecraft serving as a temporary habitat for astronauts, a science laboratory (for crewed and un-crewed experiments), a communications store/relay, a holding area for other spacecraft and devices, etc. The Gateway requires auto ...
