  2. VLWIR Sensors for Detecting and Tracking Near-Earth Asteroids

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S1

    An important NASA mission is to detect, count and track near-earth asteroids for a variety of reasons including the hazards of collisions with our planet. Such asteroids are mostly dark, small and cold (~ 200K); so they are best detected in the very longwave infrared (VLWIR) wavelengths greater than ~ 12 microns where they glow brightest. To accomplish this, we developed in Phase I a record-perfor ...

  3. Metal Advanced Manufacturing Bot-Assisted Assembly (MAMBA) Process

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H7

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop the Metal Advanced Manufacturing Bot-Assisted Assembly (MAMBA) Process, a robotically managed metal press and milling system used to create precision parts on orbit. This manufacturing process provides an alternative to 3D printing metals in space, which is difficult due to space environment, feedstock safety concerns, and print quality issues. I ...

  4. MakerSat

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: Z8

    As SmallSats become the “Satellite of Choice” for NASA and other Government and Private Space Missions, there is a growing need to enable SmallSats to perform “Long Baseline” and “Spatially Diverse” observation, measurement and collection missions. Traditionally, these types of missions would be performed either by using formation flying or by using “large” satellites equipped wit ...

  6. Precision Eddy Current Sensor for Nondestructive Evaluation of Spacecraft Structures

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H13

    In order to mitigate risk to equipment and crew, NASA needs nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques and sensors that are capable of detecting holes, pits, cracks, and corrosion of structures that are not visually accessible. The Independent Assessment of Instrument for ISS On-Orbit NDE highlights the challenges and importance of performing NDE of the international space station (ISS) pressure w ...

  7. Deft Control Software (DCS) for Remote Robotic Operations with Underlying Structure

    SBC: Bluhaptics, Inc.            Topic: Z5

    Future space missions will increasingly rely upon tele-operated robots to perform work remotely. This will require substantial improvements in robotic function, cognition, and human/machine interaction. The goal of this work is to realize this future by addressing key challenges in robotic space operations.BluHaptics has successfully demonstrated both the feasibility and potential impact of using ...

  8. Open-Source Pipeline for Large-Scale Data Processing, Analysis and Collaboration

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S5

    NASA's observational products generate petabytes of scientific data, which are highly underutilized due to computational requirements; disjoint data access protocols; and task-specific, non‑reusable code development. Our overall objective is to accelerate NASA science through development of an open-source, Python-based Pipeline for Observational Data Processing, Analysis, and Collaboration ( ...

  9. Low Cost Cryocooler Control Electronics for Small Space Platforms

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S1

    Many of NASA’s future space science missions will utilize small spacecraft, and many of these missions will require cryocoolers for cooling detectors, sensors, shields, and telescopes. For Class C and D missions, the cryocooler technical requirements for performance, size, and mass, coupled with the programmatic requirements for minimal cost and development time, are extremely challenging. Fli ...

  10. A Two-Phase Pumped Loop Evaporator with Adaptive Flow Distribution for Large Area Cooling

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S3

    NASA’s future remote sensing science missions require advanced thermal management technologies to maintain multiple instruments at very stable temperatures and utilize waste heat to keep other critical subsystems above minimum operational temperatures. Two-phase pumped loops are an ideal solution for these applications. A critical need for these pumped loops is a microgravity-compatible evaporat ...
