  1. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. Development of Light-Weight, Low-Cost Multichannels Membrane Reformer

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A novel approach for the development of a lightweight, low-cost, compact, and quick start-up on-board fuel reformer is proposed in this Phase II program. The approach is based on a novel MER¿s technique for the fabrication of multichannel mini-reactors incorporating hydrogen separating membrane. Multichannel mini-reactor shrinks the dimensions through which energy and reactants travel to their ...

  9. Prognostics-Enabled Power Supply for ADAPT Testbed

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ridgetop's role is to develop electronic prognostics for sensing power systems in support of NASA/Ames ADAPT testbed. The prognostic enabled power systems from Ridgetop are to be integrated into NASA's Advanced Diagnostics and Prognostics Testbed (ADAPT) and later used in the Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV). Prognostics will provide power supply "state of health", remaining useful life (RUL) and ...
