  1. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for 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 indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  2. Cost Effective Processing Equipment for Large Composite Parts

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Reduced mass materials are critical to the success of aerospace systems. Thus, large air and space structures can benefit from lightweight composite materials. However, their adoption is impaired by the lack of a robust, cost-effective fabrication process, principally because the autoclaves used to consolidate composite laminates are so expensive for large parts. This program develops for US aeros ...

  3. Accelerated Numerical Processing API Based on GPU Technology

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: S802

    The recent performance increases in graphics processing units (GPUs) have made graphics cards an attractive platform for implementing computationally intense applications. With their numerous parallel computational pipelines and SIMD architecture, modern GPUs can outperform high-end microprocessors by one to three orders of magnitude, depending on the problem. Most work to date at EM Photonics a ...

  4. Quantum Calorimeters Based on HgCdTe Alloys

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: S402

    NASA's next generation of x-ray observation missions require x-ray calorimeters with superior energy resolution. Semimetallic HgTe has already proven itself as an excellent soft x-ray absorber material due to its low heat capacity. Hg0.834Cd0.166Te was shown in Phase 1 to have a heat capacity superior to that of HgTe. Hence Hg0.834Cd0.166Te-based microcalorimeter arrays are expected to have an ene ...

  5. High-Efficiency, High-Temperature, Ultra-Lightweight GaP-Based Solar Cells

    SBC: EpiWorks, Inc.            Topic: S203

    The objective of this proposal is to study and demonstrate novel GaAsNP/GaP/AlGaP technology for use in extreme photovoltaic (PV) energy conversion. NASA and the scientific community are interested in solar missions that go as far as Saturn or even into near sun conditions. Such missions present a challenging problem for PV technology. In addition to the requisite high efficiency and reduced so ...

  6. CERL: The Complex Event Recognition System

    SBC: Neodesic Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Complex Event Recognition Architecture (CERA) provides five major innovations: (1) The ComplexEvent Description Language (CEDL): a declarative language for describing complex events: that is, eventsthat can occur across time, be sensed from multiple channels, and be composed of the conjunction, disjunctionor negation of other complex or simple events; (2) The Complex Event Recognition Language ...

  7. Integrated L-Band T/R Module

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: S605

    The goal of this Phase II project is to deliver an integrated L-band transmit/receive (T/R) module which will be fabricated from a GaAs-based combined HBT/PHEMT epistructure. The T/R module will consist of a power amplifier, a low noise amplifier, and two switches. The performance goal for the low noise amplifier is 30 dB gain with a less than 1.0 dB noise figure. The performance goal for the p ...
