  2. Lidar Wind Profiler for the NextGen Airportal

    SBC: MASSTECH, INC.            Topic: A302

    The development of a standoff sensor that can measure 3D components of wind velocity in the vicinity of an airport has the potential to improve airport throughput, safety and efficiency. The goal of this research is to develop a Lidar Wind Profiler (LWP) that uses multiple near-parallel lidar beams to track the motion of atmospheric aerosol structures and extract multi-component wind data. In Pha ...

  3. Advanced Filtering Techniques Applied to Spaceflight

    SBC: IST-Rolla            Topic: O404

    IST-Rolla developed two nonlinear filters for spacecraft orbit determination during the Phase I contract. The theta-D filter and the cost based filter, CBF, were developed and used in various orbit determination scenarios. The scenarios were application to low Earth orbit, range only, and range and range rate estimation. The modified state observer was also developed to estimate uncertainty in t ...

  4. Integrated Testbed for Environmental Analysis of NextGen Concepts using ACES

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A302

    The key innovation in this effort is the development of an industrial-grade analysis testbed to integrate simulation tools, such as ACES, with aviation environmental effects models, such as the Aviation Environmental Design Toolkit (AEDT), to provide a "360-degree" evaluation of new operational concepts. The testbed will be demonstrated by producing such a "360-degree" evaluat ...

  5. A Sensor Management Tool for Use with NASA World Wind

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: S602

    The number of sensors that are deployed continues to increase for scientific, commercial and intelligence related applications. Quantities of sensor data are increasingly available. NASA and NOAA are generating large quantities of sensor data involving earth, oceans and weather observations. US intelligence and commercial endeavors are also generating vast amounts of sensor data, gathered from sou ...

  6. Multi-Purpose Radio Signal Generation System


    Early Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) simulation is essential to early retirement of space mission development risks. Upcoming NASA missions such as MMS involve complex high Earth orbits making the use of GPS difficult, though NASA has developed GPS receivers capable of performing in these environments. Space GPS simulation needs are typically seen as a niche market, and the resulting solutions, whi ...

  7. Non-Linear Non Stationary Analysis of Two-Dimensional Time-Series Applied to GRACE Data

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: S603

    The proposed innovative two-dimensional (2D) empirical mode decomposition (EMD) analysis was applied to NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission database in phase I in an attempt of extracting and revealing the finest details of regional and seasonal variations. The proposed innovation is a robust and adaptive data analysis method based on a 2D adaptive isotropic decompo ...

  8. Systems and Services for Real-Time Web Access to NPP Data

    SBC: Global Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: S603

    Global Science & Technology, Inc. (GST) proposes to build a scalable, adaptable, and interoperable information processing and delivery infrastructure that will provide near-real-time access to satellite data from the National Polar-Orbiting Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) Preparatory Project (NPP), its follow-on the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS), and other near-real-time observat ...

  10. Extraction of Bioproducts from Algae in Water using Cavitating Jets

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 812SG

    One of the most promising biomass sources for fuels and other feedstocks is photosynthetic algae. Algae can produce lipids, proteins, and other compounds, and can be grown in salt water. Current production practices rely on expensive means of harvesting, concentrating, and extracting the algae. This makes the “bio-crude” produced by algae more expensive than petroleum. Recovering the cellular ...
