  6. Wireless Passive Nanoparticle based Intelligent Sensor System for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc.            Topic: T13

    Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of a wireless, passive, nanoparticle-based sensor system. The sensor in its current form can be used to measure real time temperatures and pressures wirelessly without the need of an external energy source. It should be noted that the same sensing principle can be used for strain monitoring as well. It comprises of a micr ...

  7. Regeneratively Cooled Ceramic Matrix Composite Nozzle Assembly for Reduced Weight

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T9

    All rocket missions benefit from having lower structural mass and higher specific impulse, both of which contribute to larger payload fractions and therefore lower mission cost. High temperature materials such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are an avenue to lower engine mass because of the low density and high specific strength of the material. They also have a high maximum temperature and so ...

  8. Smallsat Swarm Sparse Aperture SAR for Recon and Surveillance (SSSASAfRaS)

    SBC: VisSidus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T4

    The goal of the proposed Phase I work is to demonstrate the feasibility of the coordination and control of a low cardinality (n=12) swarm of smallsats that realizes a distributed Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) in low Earth orbit. Preliminary mission and spacecraft design work has shown that the swarm can support SAR imaging in the L-band (1.35 GHz) with a ground range resolution finer than 10 ...
