  1. Temperature, Heat Flux and Recession Sensing for Ablative Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems Inc.            Topic: X901

    The Phase I program demonstrated the efficacy of real-time of ultrasonic recession measurements on low density TPS materials. Measurements on internal echoes established the feasibility of non-intrusive temperature measurements. In the Phase II program we will continue to improve, optimize, and extend the technology. Sensors with better elevated temperature performance will be developed and con ...

  3. WINDSUN: Weather INformation Display Systems for UAS in the NAS

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A201

    NASA is leading a large-scale effort to conduct research, develop standards, and integrate technologies to facilitate the insertion of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS). One area of development to support this effort is the adaptation of existing weather technologies for manned cockpits for use in UAS ground control stations (GCSs). However, the lack of a defi ...

  4. Robotic Mission Simulation Tool

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: H601

    Energid Technologies proposes a software tool to predict robotic mission performance and support supervision of robotic missions even when environments and situations are profoundly unknown. It transcends common Monte Carlo simulations by supporting input parameters for which probability distributions are not available. Stochastic optimization is combined with randomized simulation to bound statis ...

  9. Comprehensive Simulation Lifecycle Management for High Performance Computing Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: S501

    There are significant logistical barriers to entry-level high performance computing (HPC) modeling and simulation (M & S) users. Performing large-scale, massively parallel computations on modern supercomputing platforms is a very challenging task in and of itself. It requires huge amounts of analyst resources to construct datasets, transfer files, build codes, submit and monitor jobs, and anal ...

  10. Zero G Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: E103

    The Zero G Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD) will provide the ability to quantify the mass of objects up to 2,000 grams, including live animal specimens in a zero G environment, an innovative because there currently are no such devices available to perform mass measurement of smaller masses (<2000 grams) in space. At present there are no tools on board the International Space Station (ISS) to mea ...
