  1. Additive Friction Stir Deposition of Aluminum Alloys and Functionally Graded Structures

    SBC: AEROPROBE CORPORATION            Topic: H502

    State-of-the-art additive manufacturing technologies for metal parts have evolved primarily around powder metallurgy and fusion welding-based processes. These processing methodologies yield parts with inferior mechanical and physical properties as compared to wrought metal of the same composition. Additionally, the production rates for even the fastest processes are relatively low, the part enve ...

  2. Advanced Deposition Capability for Oxidation & Corrosion Protection Coatings

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: T1201

    NASA's long range goals of reducing fuel consumption by 30% and increasing fuel efficiency by 35% can be partially accomplished through increasing the operation temperatures of gas turbine engines. The advent of advanced alloys, coatings, cooling technologies and ceramic components has created the potential for significant increases in the hot section of these engines; however, these advances wil ...

  3. A Low-Cost, High-Performance Colloidal Quantum Dot LWIR FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: CBD13105

    The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wavelength infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) and show its feasibility when used in a camera system and a hyperspectral imaging system. Phase I results cumulated in the first-ever synthesis of photoresponsive LWIR CQDs and CQD-based photodetectors at the single device level operating at room temperat ...

  4. A Miniature Autoinjector for Multicomponent Drugs and Vaccines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13106

    Chemical, biological, or toxin attacks in military and civilian settings are a serious and growing concern. Standard first aid for exposure to some chemical warfare agents and toxins includes the immediate administration of relevant antidotes using an autoinjector. When an attack occurs, pre-filled autoinjectors must be immediately available and thus highly portable, and they must be suitable fo ...

  5. AN ALL-METAL COMPACT HEAT EXCHANGER FOR SPACEBORNE CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL CYCLE EFFICIENCY (HENCE, INPUT POWER REQUIREMENTS) OF REVERSE-BRAYTON CRYOCOOLERS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS IS HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO THE THERMAL EFFECTIVENESS OF THE HEAT EXCHANGERS. APPLICATIONS FOR THESE CRYOCOOLERS IN SPACE DICTATE THAT THESE HEAT EXCHANGERS BE AS SMALL AND LIGHT AS POSSIBLE. TO DATE, ONLYHEAT EXCHANGERS EMPLOYING ORGANIC MATERIALS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACHIEVE THE HIGH THER ...

  6. A Novel Plasma-Based Compressor Stall Control System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A308

    Modern aircraft gas turbine engines utilize highly loaded airfoils in both the compressor and turbine to maximize performance while minimizing weight, cost, and complexity. However, high airfoil loading increases the likelihood of flow separation at lower mass flow rates. Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) plasma actuators have been shown to be a very promising technique for compressor stall con ...

  7. A Real-Time Fault Management Software System for Distributed Environments

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: S505

    Fault Management (FM) is critical to mission operations and particularly so for complex instruments – such as those used for aircraft and spacecraft. FM software and methodologies, however, too often have nagging limitations that restrict utility, and research and development continues to grapple relative to advancements in the complex systems they monitor. Modern spacecraft, for example, may hav ...

  8. A Reliable, Efficient Cryogenic Propellant Mixing Pump With No Moving Parts

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H201

    Refueling spacecraft in space offers tremendous benefits for increased spacecraft payload capacity and reduced launch cost. However, there are several key challenges with space refueling associated with the storage and handling of liquid cryogens in space. To meet these challenges, we propose to develop a reliable, compact, efficient cryogenic mixing pump with no moving parts. The mixing pump w ...

  9. A Scalable Semantics-Based Verification System for Flight Critical Software

    SBC: Runtime Verification, Inc.            Topic: A106

    Flight-critical systems rely on an ever increasing amount of software—the Boe- ing 777 contains over 2 million lines of code. Most of this code is written in the C programming language. We need a scalable static formal program verification tool that is able to prove the functional correctness of flight-critical software, limiting any failure of flight critical software to hardware faults. Thi ...

  10. Autonomous Navigation in GNSS-Denied Environments

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: T501

    Aurora proposes to transition UMD methods for insect-inspired, lightweight vision- and optical sensor-based navigation methods for a combined air-ground system that leverages the unique capabilities of airborne systems to achieve a progressively refined map of the exploration region which can be accessed by agents within the autonomous team for localization, and by scientists and other ground ob ...
