  1. A Fast-Response Atmospheric Turbulence (FRAT) Probe with Gas-Sampling Ducts

    SBC: AEROPROBE CORPORATION            Topic: S108

    The objective of this proposal is to design, construct and test a high-frequency-response air-data probe, the Fast Response Atmospheric Turbulence probe (FRAT probe) that will be able to operate in harsh and humid atmospheric environments. Both requirements, high-frequency response and resistance to water spray can be accommodated by mounting the pressure sensors flush with the probe surface. We w ...

  2. In Situ Wake Vortex Encounter Detection and Reporting System

    SBC: Aerotech Research            Topic: A302

    Wake vortices are a critical constraint to aircraft separation and therefore airportal throughput, which is already at or near capacity at many major airports in the NAS. Improvements to current methods of spacing aircraft could significantly increase airportal capacity, but there is currently limited awareness of wake encounters and information with which to assess spacing in real-time or to des ...

  3. Integration of Performance Based Operations into ATM and TFM Simulations

    SBC: Aerotech Research            Topic: A301

    FAA predicts that air traffic will double or even triple by 2025 and unless solutions that enable improvements in the use of airspace can be developed and implemented, significant airspace congestion will occur. Advancements in aircraft capabilities via new technologies can enable aircraft to operate more efficiently in the NAS and to operate safely in areas previously restricted. AeroTech propo ...

  4. On Orbit Immuno-Based, Label-Free, White Blood Cell Counting System with MicroElectroMechanical Sensor (MEMS) Technology (OILWBCS-MEMS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: X1402

    Aurora Flight Sciences Corporation and our partner, Draper Laboratory, propose to develop an on orbit immuno-based, label-free, white blood cell counting system for simultaneous counting of peripheral blood cell subpopulations, including total white blood cells, the five white blood cell differential subgroups, and various lymphocyte subtypes, such as CD4 and CD8 positive cells, using Draper's Mic ...

  5. ADIS-type Charged Particle Spectrometer for Manned Space Radiation Dosimetry

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: X1301

    As manned missions to the moon and eventually Mars gain momentum, astronaut crews will be sent back to the deepest parts of space humans have ever traveled, and will continue deeper into space than ever before. Once outside the protection of the Earth's magnetic field, astronauts become fully exposed to an array of dangerous charged particles, both cosmic rays (CRs) and Solar Energetic Particles ( ...

  6. A Robust Flare Planning Logic for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Applications

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: A109

    Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to develop a flare planning logic that would provide aircraft guidance during this critical phase of flight. The algorithms that Aurora seeks to leverage address the reachability problem in the fields of Optimal Control and Hybrid Systems. Two competing technical approaches will beconsidered; Aurora collectively refers to them as "Safety Verification-based algorith ...

  7. Analysis and Development of UAV Operations in the NAS

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: A301

    Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with Air Network Simulation and Analysis, Inc. (ANSA), proposes to develop a simulation-based methodology to analyze and guide the development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) operations in the National Airspace System (NAS).The key technical accomplishment of the Phase I effort will be the integration of Aurora's 4D Path Planner with ANSA's stochastic NAS ...

  8. Shielded Mars Balloon Launcher (SMBL)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: S305

    Aurora Flight Sciences, along with its partner Vertigo Industries, proposes a novel approach to deployment of balloon-based payloads into the Martian atmosphere. Balloon-based Mars exploration has the capability to cover a larger portion of the Martian surface than is accessible via a rover and to provide better resolution than is available from satellites. Due to the low density of the Martian at ...

  9. Sonic Boom Vibro-Acoustic Simulations using Multiple Point Sources

    SBC: AVEC, Inc.            Topic: A203

    AVEC proposes an innovative concept for the evaluation of human response studies to sonic booms inside realistic structures. The approach proposed is to simulate the distributed boom load on the structure using an array of discrete forces. The forces are applied sequentially making the approach effective and implementable in real structures. In addition, the method allows evaluating the contributi ...

  10. Robust Switching Control for Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A207

    Flight in the hypersonic regime is critical to NASA's goals because access to earth orbit and re-entry from orbit to earth or to other planets with atmospheres require flight through this regime. Hypersonic flight poses a wide array of difficulties, including significant guidance and control challenges. For example, flexible airframes and highly integrated airframe and propulsion systems common ...
