  1. SCAP Content Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NIST and G2 have been on the forefront of security automation with the development of the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). However, the barrier to entry for SCAP content creation is the requirement to have in depth knowledge of the underlying specifications. This project aims to allow security experts to create SCAP content without the need to be an expert in the specification. By leve ...

  2. Alternative Green Technology for Power Generation Using Waste-Heat Energy And Advanced Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: T803

    NASA is interested in advancing green technology research for achieving sustainable and environmentally friendly energy sources. Thermo-electric power generation (TEPG) has exceptionally rich potential to fulfill this need. A TEPG module requires (1) material that can provide high figure of merit while still providing efficient heat control; (2) low resistance ohmic contacts that operate at high t ...

  3. Security-Enhanced Autonomous Network Management for Space Networking

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: O106

    NASA's Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) program is integrating its three current agency networks: Space Network (SN), Deep Space Network (DSN), and Near Earth Network (NEN). This effort raises several issues for the network management in the future integrated space networks. First, an integrated network management function, which uses common standards and implementations, is needed to se ...

  4. Formaldehyde Profiler Using Laser Induced Fluorescence Technique

    SBC: MASSTECH, INC.            Topic: S108

    Formaldehyde (HCHO) is a key trace species that is of great interest to atmospheric scientists in NASA and other research institutions. In this SBIR project, we proposed to build an airborne atmospheric formaldehyde (HCHO) profiler implementing a Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) technique. This airborne instrument can also be used on the ground for measuring vertical HCHO profiles. To our knowle ...

  5. ESPRIT: Exercise Sensing and Pose Recovery Inference Tool

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: X1101

    Crew exercise is important for maintaining the health and fitness of astronauts, and to prevent adverse health problems, such as bone density losses. We developed algorithms for ESPRIT: an Exercise Sensing and Pose Recovery Inference Tool, in support of NASA's Exercise Countermeasure Program. ESPRIT is a stereo camera system that monitors exercise activities, detects markers placed on the body and ...

  6. Real-Time Smart Tools for Processing Spectroscopy Data

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: T501

    Since Mars rovers have limited life span, NASA wants to maximize the exploration activities during this period. Rock sample analysis is one of the main tasks of rover missions. Traditionally, rock selection is decided by human operators. Due to long communication delay, manual selection process is time-consuming. There is a strong need to develop an automatic software system to automate the proces ...

  7. A Robust Real-Time Collaboration Technology for Decision Support in Multi-Platform Virtual Globe Environments

    SBC: STORMCENTER COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: S602

    The innovation aims to develop the tools for multiple geobrowsers to communicate over the Internet to create a real collaborative experience over computer desktop virtual globes when dealing with any type of geospatial information. These functions are especially important when dealing with decision makers, who frequently are non-GIS experts that require visualizing their own assets on a map, like ...

  8. Novel Silicon Carbide Deep Ultraviolet Detectors: Device Modeling, Characterization, Design and Prototyping

    SBC: CoolCAD Electronics, LLC            Topic: S105

    Silicon Carbide deep UV detectors can achieve large gains, high signal-to-noise ratios and solar-blind operation, with added benefits of smaller sizes, lower operating voltages, radiation hardness, ruggedness and scalability. SiC UV APDs implementation is challenging due to some material defects, relatively not-well modeled device operation, and very high absorption coefficients near 200nm wavelen ...

  9. Lightweight High Efficiency Electric Motors and Actuators for Low Temperature Mobility and Robotics Applications

    SBC: QM Power, Inc.            Topic: X403

    QM Power will build and empirically test Space and Cryogenic qualified preproduction Parallel Magnetic Circuit [PMC] 1-5 HP motor/actuators with electronic controllers. These preproduction prototypes will demonstrate lower operating power requirements for cryogenic motor/actuator components used in Space applications. PMC is an enabling technology having a broader peak power and high efficiency r ...

  10. 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 ...
