  1. Context-Augmented Robotic Interaction Layer (CARIL) Phase II

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: H2001

    CHI Systems and the Institute for Human Machine Cognition have teamed to create a human-robot interaction system that leverages cognitive representations of shared context as a basis for a fundamentally new approach to human-robotic interaction. This approach centers on a framework for representing context, and for using context to enable robot adaptive decision-making and behavior. The framework ...

  4. Handheld Electronics EHM Sensor Probe for Determination of Remaining Useful Life

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: A104

    National Aeronautical and Space Administration's (NASA) Aviation Safety Program "seeks capabilities furthering the practice of proactive safety management." One area of particular interest is the prognostication of Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of avionic systems. In response, Nokomis is proposing to develop an Electronic Health Monitoring (EHM) Sensor Unit which would be able provide accurate est ...

  5. Innovative High Temperature Heat Pipes for Spacecraft Nuclear Fission Systems

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X803

    NASA Glenn is examining small fission reactors for future space transportation and surface power applications. The reactors would have an 8 to 15 year design life and should be available for a 2020 launch to support future NASA science missions. Both 1 kWe thermoelectric and 3 kWe Stirling systems have been examined. Heat pipes are being examined to transfer the thermal energy from the reactor ...

  6. Vapor Chamber with Phase Change Material-Based Wick Structure for Thermal Control of Manned Spacecraft

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H301

    During a NASA Phase I SBIR program, ACT addressed the need for light-weight, non-venting PCM heat storage devices by successfully demonstrating proof-of-concept of a vapor chamber with a PCM-based wick structure. The principal objective of the Phase II program is to design, fabricate, and test a full-scale PCM vapor chamber. Goals of the Phase II program include establishing thermal and structural ...

  7. Titanium-Water Heat Pipe Radiator for Spacecraft Fission Power

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H802

    In this SBIR Phase II program Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes to develop titanium/water heat pipes suitable for Spacecraft Fission Power applications. NASA is currently examining small fission power reactors design, such as the Kilopower, which aims to provide roughly 1 kW of electric power. Kilopower plans to use titanium/water heat pipes to remove the waste heat from the cold ...

  9. Ultraprecision Pointing Accuracy for SmallSat/CubeSat Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: S305

    The Phase I program concluded with the successful demonstration of a piezo enhanced pointing system targeted to the CubeSat class of satellites. The Phase I program results also surpassed the Phase I goals allowing the proposed Phase II program to further push the capabilities and design of the approach. The main objective of the Phase II program is to further quantify the performance of the Att ...

  10. Hybrid Heat Pipes for High Heat Flux Applications

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S307

    The thermal transport requirements for future spacecraft missions continue to increase, approaching several kilowatts. At the same time the heat acquisition areas have trended downward, thereby increasing the incident heat flux. Current incident heat flux for laser diode applications is on the order of 5-10W/cm2, although this is expected to increase towards 50W/cm2. This is a severe limitation fo ...
