  1. Hierarchical State Machine Visualization in Multi-Robot System

    SBC: Rocket Studios            Topic: T4

    Swarms of space vehicles rely on cooperative operations to perform scheduled tasks. This project proposes to improve the design process and operation control of a multi-agent system by using Hierarchical state machines (HSMs). The research will look into theoretical frameworks and methods to visualize HSMs dynamics representing the behavior of a multi-agent system. How an interactive user interfac ...

  4. Radiation Modeling of COTS Power Converters in a Highly Shield Space Environment

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: T6

    Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electronics systems operated in highly-shielded enclosures (HSE) will all require power supplies or DC/DC converters to power the signal processing electronics. nbsp;Most power supplies are based on switching converters that require power transistors, diodes, gate drivers, and control ICs that regulate the power. These components in a COTS assembly will all be unhar ...

  5. 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 ...
