  1. Ionomer-membrane Water Processor System Design and EDU Demonstration

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X301

    a. Paragon Space Development Corporation¿ (Paragon) proposes to continue our investigation into the use of microporous-ionomer membrane technology to improve the robustness and effectiveness and simplify water recovery processes for space applications. Improved robustness and effectiveness will be evident through (1) reduced loading onthe downstream post processor due to the ionomer¿s unique pr ...

  2. Improved Rhenium Thrust Chambers for In-Space Propulsion

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: S304

    Radiation-cooled, bipropellant thrust chambers are being considered for the ascent/descent engines and reaction control systems for NASA missions such as Mars Sample Return and Orion MPCV. Currently, iridium-lined rhenium combustion chambers are the state-of-the-art for in-space engines. NASA's Advanced Materials Bipropellant Rocket (AMBR) engine, a 150-lbf iridium-rhenium chamber produced by Pla ...

  3. Non-Toxic HAN Monopropellant Propulsion

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: X202

    Non-toxic monopropellants have been developed that provide better performance than toxic hydrazine. Formulations based on hydroxylammonium nitrate (HAN) have superior performance as compared to hydrazine with Isp (261 seconds, 12% greater), higher density and volumetric impulse (60% greater density-impulse), lower melting point, and much lower toxicity (No self contained breathing apparatus requir ...

  4. Volcanic Ash Nephelometer Probe

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: S309

    Advanced dropsondes that could effectively be guided through atmospheric regions of interest such as volcanic plumes may enable unprecedented observations of important atmospheric phenomena. IDI proposes to develop a flight ready optical sensor to provide cloud properties and hazardous volcanic ash and icing information within commercial airspace. The probe will initially be developed for a drops ...

  5. Frequency-Locked Single-Frequency Fiber Laser at 2 Micron

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S101

    Frequency-locked single-frequency 2 micron fiber laser is proposed to be used for airborne/spaceborne coherent lidar measurements, i.e., Active Sensing of CO2 Emissions over Nights, Days, and Seasons. The laser is based on our proprietary fiber technology and extensive experience in fiber laser development, which features a compact, highly stable, frequency-stabilized light source. Advanced freque ...

  6. Emile: The EventML Explorer

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: A120

    The protocols needed to coordinate the activities of distributed components, such as consensus algorithms, are notoriously difficult to design, implement, and verify. Abstraction is the only way to gain intellectual control over this complex problem; so ATC-NY and Cornell University have developed Event Logic, a high-level model for describing and reasoning about distributed systems, and EventML, ...

  7. Predictive Gust Load Alleviation Control Using Leading Edge Stagnation Point Sensor

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A207

    ZONA Technology, Inc. proposes an R & D effort to develop a Gust Load Alleviation (GLA) control system using a novel Leading Edge Stagnation Point (LESP) sensor that has the nearly instantaneous predictive capability. The real-time gust information from the sensor will enhance the performance of the proposed GLA control system. The GLA control method we will adopt is the Generalized Predictive ...

  9. A UAS-ATC Simulation Test-Bed

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: A501

    The proposed solution is to create a high fidelity simulation environment that merges a UAS ground control station (GCS) simulator with an air traffic control (ATC) simulator. The UAS GCS station will have the capability of introducing a single UAS or multiple UASs simulator operated by a single and/or multiple UAS pilots into the ATC. This simulation will have the ability to simulate manned aircr ...

  10. Echo Time Distance Measurements for Nanosatellite Arrays

    SBC: American Academy of Aeronautics            Topic: S401

    This proposal presents a technique for the precise determination of distance between nodes of a planar array of nanosatellites for synthetic aperture and sensor array applications. The proposed effort will result in a navigational technique that can precisely determine the positions of nanosatellite sensor nodes in the array. The proposed innovation enables higher performance and low cost sensor a ...
