  1. Building a Rice Decision Support System to Support Global Food Security and Commodity Markets

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: S502

    Agriculture faces major challenges in the decades to come due to increasing resource pressures, severe weather and climate change, population growth and shifting diets, and economic development. Rice is one of the most important crops globally considering its role in the Earth system, food security, and providing livelihoods with more than 1 billion people depending on rice. Tools and systems that ...

  2. Six-Axis Force-Torque Transducer for Mars 2018 Mission

    SBC: ATI Industrial Automation, Inc.            Topic: S502

    A transducer element that is hearty enough for a Mars lander mission needs to be developed so that a six-axis force and torque transducer is possible. The technical objectives are: 1. A transducer element capable of surviving temperatures from -135?C to +125?C. 2. The transducer element in objective 1 with temperature compensation to minimize span and offset drift from -80?C to +70?C. 3. The tran ...

  3. Ultra-Miniaturized Star Tracker for Small Satellite Attitude Control

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: T801

    Creare and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) propose to complete the design, development, and testing of an ultra compact star tracker specifically intended for small satellites such as the CubeSat platform. Our design is based on proprietary "folded optics" technology previously developed by ERAU for use in military and commercial optical applications that require a compact footprint a ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Turbo-Brayton Power Converter for Spaceflight Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H803

    Future NASA space missions require advanced systems to convert thermal energy into electric power. These systems must be reliable, efficient, and lightweight. In response, we propose to develop a turbo-Brayton power converter with high efficiency and specific power. The converter will use gas bearings to provide reliable, maintenance-free, long-life operation. It will also consist of discrete ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Lightweight Superconducting Magnets for Low Temperature Magnetic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S106

    NASA's future science missions to investigate the structure and evolution of the universe require efficient, very low temperature coolers for low noise detector systems. We propose to develop a highly efficient, lightweight Active Magnetic Regenerative Refrigeration (AMRR) system that can continuously provide remote/distributed cooling at temperatures of about 2 K with a heat sink at about 15 K. ...

  9. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic air gaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare proposes to develop a hermetic garment closure system that seals macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and pro ...

  10. 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 ...
