  1. 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 ...

  2. Advanced Algorithms and Controls for Superior Robotic All-Terrain Mobility

    SBC: PROTOINNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: T1101

    ProtoInnovations, LLC (PI) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have formed a partnership to research, develop, and experimentally characterize a suite of robotic controls to significantly improve the safety, mean travel speed, and rough-terrain access of wheeled planetary rovers. In meeting this goal we have been developing algorithms for all-terrain adaptive locomotion which inclu ...

  3. Advanced Long-Range Video Capabilities Using Speckle Imaging Techniques

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A402

    Flight-testing is a crucial component in NASA's mission to research and develop new aeronautical concepts because it allows for verification of simulated and wind-tunnel experiments and exposes previously unforeseen design problems. Video is an invaluable tool for flight-testing, allowing the collection of a wealth of information such as craft position, speed, health, as well as tracking diff ...

  4. Advanced Numerical Tools for Design and Analysis of In-Space, Valve and Feed Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: X902

    In-space valves are required to provide precise mass flow control, wide throttling range and handle rapid on-off control. These requirements can result in significant unsteady, transient effects both on the fluid mass flow rate, as well as the torque required. However, there currently are no analytical or numerical modeling tools that can predict the unsteady/transient performance of these valves; ...

  5. Computational Modeling in Support of High Altitude Testing Facilities

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: O202

    Simulation technology plays an important role in propulsion test facility design and development by assessing risks, identifying failure modes and predicting anomalous behavior of critical systems. This is true for facilities such as the proposed A-3 that will operate at low pressures in conjunction with steam ejectors and the B-2 facility where flame deflector cooling and plume impingement dynami ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Development of Manufacturing Technology for the Practical Application of Specialized and Environmentally Sensitive Nutrients, Enzymes, Immune-Stimulating Compounds and Biologics to Aquafeeds

    SBC: Zeigler Bros, Inc.            Topic: 823F

    In an effort to support the development of a domestic marine aquaculture industry, Zeigler Bros. Inc., (ZBI) proposes to continue its Phase I research by demonstrating the ability to scale up inclusion particle (IP) manufacturing. During Phase II ZBI will also demonstrate the efficacy of IOs for orally delivering phytase and probiotics to marine finfish. These efforts will directly address the p ...
