  1. Integration of Superconducting Electrical and Thermal Circuits for Microscale Cooling

    SBC: ATLAS SCIENTIFIC            Topic: T402

    Microcalorimetry is an enabling technology for many NASA space science missions because it permits detection of single photons at high rates with unprecedented energy resolution and efficiency. This remarkable technology relies upon superconducting devices that must be cooled below 100 mK. We propose to construct a doubly-integrated circuit in which critical features of microcalorimeter pixels on ...

  5. Mitigating Software Failures with Distributed and Recovery-Oriented Flight System Architectures

    SBC: KESTREL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: T101

    The primary focus of Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) has been on faults due to hardware failures. Yet software is growing in complexity, controls critical functionality under a wide range of conditions and does so with greater autonomy. Furthermore, software errors have negatively impacted major missions. Runtime recovery from software faults is gaining momentum in research community ...

  6. Shape Memory Bio-Suit

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: T501

    Spacesuit systems for planetary EVAs must maximize human productivity and provide the astronaut with the capability to perform useful work tasks. Mide plans to work with MIT to develop mechanisms to augment astronaut productivity during advanced EVA missions. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using shape memory polymers (SMPs) to provide pressurizing life support in the Bio-Suit, an a ...

  7. Online Real-Time Tribology Failure Detection System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: T202

    The investigation of the coating friction as a function of time is important to monitor the ball bearing heath. Despite the importance of the subject mater, there is a crucial lack of information in the literature about coating life and friction force in ball bearings as coating wear of progressively increases. Here we propose to develop a strategic space vehicle health monitoring system that will ...

  10. Adaptive camera to display mappings using computer vision

    SBC: POLAR RAIN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The video surveillance industry is experiencing dramatic change with the move from analog to digital video. Command centers need to have coordinated viewing of multiple camera feeds at one time, and the ability to switch automatically between feeds and display relevant patterns. Conventional security control rooms include a bank of monitors connected through a switch to an array of security camera ...
