  2. Sensitivity Analysis for Design Optimization Integrated Software Tools

    SBC: Linked, Inc.            Topic: T401

    The objective of this Phase 2 proposal is to provide a new set of sensitivity analysis theory and codes, the Sensitivity Analysis for Design Optimization (SADO) software that integrates with the existing NASA O3 Tool. In this Phase II effort, the sensitivity codes developed in Phase I will add functionality to simplify Ground Vibration Test, or model tuning, by calculating a number of error metric ...

  4. Integrated Optical Transmitter for Space Based Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: T802

    Next generation optical modems for NASA will be based on the RZ-DPSK modulation format. This modulation format is robust, delivers high quantum efficiency and allows burst-mode operation, key when using a power limited transmitter in combination with a fixed delay line DPSK demodulator. Freedom Photonics approach in this proposed program is to integrate the laser, modulator, and amplifier into a s ...

  5. Soft Robotic Manipulators with Enhanced Perception using Multimodal Sensory Skins

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: T1101

    We propose that the key to robotic automation in unstructured environments is compliant robotic manipulators that can tolerate, sense, and leverage contact in a feedback loop. We have demonstrated proof of concept of an instrumented end-effector capable of enhanced perception through observed and controlled contact in phase I. We will now expand the project to develop highly capable state and cont ...

  9. Demonstration of Autonomous Differential Throttle-based Flight Control for Aircraft with Distributed Electric Propulsion

    SBC: Empirical Systems Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: T15

    A series of RDT&E activities is proposed to create and demonstrate a reconfigurable, autonomous flight controller for the Aircraft for Distributed Electric Propulsion Throttle-based Flight Control (ADEPT-FC) which was designed and built in Phase I, a 33 lb remote controlled aircraft featuring eight overwing electric ducted fans (EDFs) distributed spanwise along the wing’s trailing edge. The prop ...

  10. Modular Embedded Intelligent Sensor Network

    SBC: Angstrom Designs, Inc.            Topic: T1301

    No existing commercial wireless sensor network option meets NASAs current needs for flexibility, size, mass and resilience to extreme environments. The proposed innovation is a MEIS network which combines any number and any type of sensors into a wireless sensor network (WSN), with each of the sensors being motes, or nodes, on the network. The network will be self-healing and self-configuring. Eac ...
