  1. High Emissivity Protective Cerablak Coatings for Metallic TPS

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Space transportation and other vehicles entering the earth?s atmosphere at hypersonic speeds undergo aerodynamic heating which necessitates thermal protection systems (TPS) on exterior surfaces. Future reusable launch vehicles (RLVs) will require TPS durable over several missions with rapid turnaround between each flight. Advanced metallic TPS are under development that utilize a honeycomb structu ...

  2. Mini-Cell Ion Mobility Spectrometer for In Situ Chemical Analysis

    SBC: Ion Applications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A miniature, specialized Ion Mobility Spectrometer (IMS) will be designed, built, and evaluated that is responsive to the requirements of NASA exobiology flight experiments. The helium-based Ion Mobility Spectrometer previously developed for NASA by the key personnel making this proposal provides the universal response and ppb sensitivity required. However, the minimal resources available onboard ...

  3. A Discrete Event Simulation Model for Spaceport Operations (SPACESIM)

    SBC: Nevins Software, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The NASA vision for the spaceport of the future entails the transition over time from very high-cost, research oriented space launches with a relatively low frequency of launches to an environment where spaceports are commercialized for the space transportation industry and are required to support multiple launches per day in a safe, cost-effective manner. The spaceport of the future may resemble, ...

  5. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During Phase I of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for a high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an independent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Ve ...

  8. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will use an ultrasonic beam traveling logitudinally along the rail rather than the complex normal and angle-beams transducer assemblies in current systems. Detectio of transverse defects becomes a simple pulse-echo application and resolves many inherent speed, inspectin reliability and robustness problems in current rail inspection systems. The simplified procedure will increase the r ...
