  1. Fast, Parallel, High-Quality Voronoi Mesh Generator

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A1

    In this work we propose to further develop and demonstrate a mesh generation approach based on clipped Voronoi diagrams. This approach to mesh generation has the potential to significantly improve performance and robustness, while retaining important elements of high quality meshes including boundary alignment, stretching, and element regularity. Clipped Voronoi diagrams also automatically de-feat ...

  2. UAM Disturbance Rejection in Conceptual Design

    SBC: Empirical Systems Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: A1

    Complex and often violent urban wind environments pose a significant challenge to the safety and ride quality for vehicles intended for the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market. UAM aircraft concepts must have control authority, turbulence rejection, and ride comfort as figures of merit at the forefront of the configuration selection process. However, the evaluation of handling qualities has tradi ...

  3. Decentralized Cooperative Navigation for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in GPS-denied Environments

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: A2

    The use of small unmanned aerial vehicles (SUAVs) for civilian as well has military tasks, has been expanding steadily over the years. In this regard, cooperation and interoperability amongst multiple SUAVs has been seen as a key direction of future research by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). A central challenge in the cooperative navigation using multiple SUAVs is that they ...

  4. Augmenting Data Mining with Simulation for Next-Day Weather Impact Mitigation

    SBC: AvMet Applications, Inc.            Topic: A3

    We seek to reduce potential next-day weather impacts on the National Airspace System (NAS) through better delay prediction and better efficacy of Traffic Management Initiatives (TMIs) mitigating airspace congestion. Our innovative approach is to combine the retrospective method (use historical TMIs and delays on similar days for next-day prediction) with the predictive method (use fast-time simula ...

  5. Project Patchwork- Wirelessly Networked Structural Analysis Devices for Aircraft

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: A2

    Through this SBIR effort, NASA is looking for innovative technology to bolster its flight research capabilities.  Particularly, NASA seeks the development of innovative measurement and data acquisition approaches.  Mide through a past RIF BAA for Navair, developed a stand-alone high performance data logger for vibration/acceleration, pressure, and temperature. The device, dubbed the Slam ...

  7. Near Real-Time Aircraft Noise Monitoring Tool for UAM e-VTOL Aircraft

    SBC: ATAC            Topic: A3

    The proposed SBIR develops a near real-time aircraft noise monitoring tool called UAM Noise Integration Tool (UNIT) for e-VTOL aircraft that is capable of being integrated within the real-time NASA ATM-X Testbed environment. It is highly relevant to the NASA 2018 SBIR Focus Area 20, Subtopic A3.01 Advanced Air Traffic Management Systems Concepts, since it addresses the area of “achieving hig ...

  8. Bi2212 Superconductors for High-Power Density Motors for Aero Propulsion

    SBC: Solid Material Solutions, LLC            Topic: A1

    Future hybrid aircraft, such as NASA’s N3-X plan, will require all-superconducting electric motors and generators in order to achieve power density in excess of 10 kW/kg.   Unlike the DC rotor, the stator must operate in AC mode, for example, from 0-0.5 T at 120 Hz, making it impossible to use high temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes due to their high losses in transient fields, req ...

  9. Explainable Artificial Intelligence based Verification & Validation for Increasingly Autonomous Aviation Systems

    SBC: ATAC            Topic: A3

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms, which are the heart of emerging aviation autonomous systems and autonomy technologies, are generally perceived as black boxes whose decisions are a result of complex rules learned on-the-fly. Unless the decisions are explained in a human understandable form, the human end-users are less likely to accept them, and in the case of aviation applications, certif ...

  10. Prediction and Modal Analysis of Supersonic Jet Noise From Complex Nozzles in an Integrated Simulation Environment

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A1

    Our long-term vision is to seamlessly integrate resolvent operator-based spectral analysis into Cascade’s high-fidelity large eddy simulation (LES) environment, for accurate prediction and efficient modeling of supersonic jet noise from complex nozzles. Resolvent analysis is a frequency-domain technique that can identify resonance phenomena such as jet screech and other tonal acoustic effect ...
