  1. Rad-hard Location and Attitude Module (R-LAM)

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: S402

    R-LAM (Rad-hard Location and Attitude Module), promises a new generation of both integrated navigation modules and stand-alone navigation subsystems including nav-grade IMU's, atomic-precision clocks and GPS units compliant with the Space Plug and Play Architecture (SPA) initiative. R-LAM leverages two active DARPA MTO programs. In the Navigation-Grade Integrated Micro-Gyroscope (NG-IMG) project ...

  3. Compact, Controlled Force Crew Exercise System

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: X901

    Spaceflight adaptations include muscle atrophy, decreased bone mineral density and reduced aerobic capacity making effective resistance exercise countermeasure hardware necessary for safe and successful space exploration. Real-time control is applied to an electric servo-motor to provide resistance in a lightweight, compact, and reconfigurable design. The key real-time force control with the abi ...

  4. Constant Volume Combustion Engine for Planetary Ascent Vehicles

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: S308

    The Mars Sample Return mission is being planned to return samples of Martian rock, regolith, and atmosphere to Earth for scientific analysis. The Martian sample size is directly affected by the propulsion capabilities of the Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV) and innovations are sought to enhance propulsion capabilities of the MAV for functions including primary propulsion from the Mars surface, orbit inse ...

  5. A Miniaturized Sensor for Microbial Monitoring of Spacecraft Water Environment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: X203

    Accurate real-time microbial monitoring of water environment is of paramount importance to crew health as well as to ensure proper functioning and control of the life support system during space exploration. The existing methods are time-consuming and labor-intensive, and the devices used are bulky, consumable-hungry, and ill-suited for spacecraft deployment. We propose to develop and demonstrate ...

  6. A Comprehensive CFD Tool for Aerothermal Environment Around Space Vehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A206

    The goal of this SBIR project is to develop an innovative, high fidelity computational tool for accurate prediction of aerothermal environment around space vehicles. This tool will be based on the Unified Flow Solver (UFS) developed at CFDRC for hybrid simulations of rarefied, transitional and continuum flows. In this project, UFS will be enhanced to include: radiation transport, non-equilibrium c ...

  7. Software for Automated Generation of Reduced Thermal Models for Spacecraft Thermal Control

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: S302

    Thermal analysis is increasingly used in thermal engineering of spacecrafts in every stage, including design, test, and ground-operation simulation. Current high-fidelity modeling and simulation tools are computationally prohibitive and not fully compatible to integrated, multi-physics (e.g., thermal-structural-optical) analysis of spacecrafts, particularly in a single model topology currently bei ...

  8. Computational Tool for Coupled Simulation of Nonequilibrium Hypersonic Flows with Ablation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: X901

    The goal of this SBIR project is to develop a computational tool with unique predictive capabilities for the aerothermodynamic environment around ablation-cooled hypersonic re-entry vehicles. The framework for this tool will be developed such that all relevant models can be coupled to the LeMANS code for nonequilibrium hypersonic flows and the MOPAR code for ablation material response, both develo ...

  9. Improved Design of Radiation Hardened, Wide-Temperature Analog and Mixed-Signal Electronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: X103

    NASA space exploration projects require avionic systems, components, and controllers that are capable of operating in the extreme temperature and radiation environments of deep space. To design wide-temperature radiation-hardened (rad-hard) electronics and predict characteristics and reliability in space, advanced models and simulation tools are required at multiple levels. Analog and mixed-signal ...
