  2. High Efficiency, High Output Plastic Melt Waste Compactor (HEHO-PMWC)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X202

    The innovative High Efficiency, High Output Plastic Melt Waste Compactor (HEHO-PMWC) is a trash dewatering and volume reduction system that uses heat melt compaction to remove nearly 100% of water from trash and reduce the volume by up to 11 times. The HEHO-PMWC system incorporates novel methods to compress the trash, recover water, and remove the resultant plastic tiles. This system requires acce ...

  3. 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 predictive computational tool for the aerothermal environment around ablation-cooled hypersonic atmospheric entry vehicles. This tool is based on coupling the relevant physics models to the LeMANS code for hypersonic flows and to the MOPAR code for material response, both developed by the University of Michigan. In Phase I of this project, we developed ...

  5. Lightweight, Efficient Power Converters for Advanced Turboelectric Aircraft Propulsion Systems

    SBC: MTECH Laboratories, LLC            Topic: A201

    NASA is investigating advanced turboelectric aircraft propulsion systems that utilize superconducting motors to drive a number of distributed turbofans. Conventional electric motors are too large and heavy to be practical for this application, and so superconducting motors are required. In order to improve maneuverability of the aircraft, variable speed power converters would be required to thro ...

  6. Non-Toxic Ionic Liquid Fuels for Exploration Applications

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X1001

    ORBITEC proposes to develop and test new, non-toxic ionic liquid fuels for propulsion applications. Vintage propulsion systems frequently use highly toxic propellants such as MMH. The toxicity of these propellants increases not only the risk of the missions but also the expense, due to special handling required during the entire lifetime of the propellant. Replacing toxic propellants with stron ...

  7. A Light Weight, Mini Inertial Measurement System for Position and Attitude Estimation on Dynamic Platforms

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: O405

    Impact Technologies, LLC in collaboration with the Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes to develop and demonstrate a flight-worthy hardware prototype of a miniature, low cost/weight/ power device that provides stable and highly accurate near continuous positioning, attitude, and inertial measurements while being subjected to highly dynamic maneuvers and high vibration effects. In contrast t ...

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

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: S302

    Thermal analysis is increasingly used in the engineering of spacecrafts at every stage, including design, test, and ground-operation simulation. Currently used high-fidelity modeling and simulation tools at NASA are computationally prohibitive and not fully compatible with integrated analysis of spacecrafts. We propose to develop and demonstrate an innovative Model Order Reduction (MOR) software t ...

  10. Advanced Carbothermal Electric Reactor

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X301

    The overall objective of the Phase 1 effort was to demonstrate the technical feasibility of the Advanced Carbothermal Electric (ACE) Reactor concept. Unlike state-of-the-art carbothermal reactors that use concentrated solar energy and/or laser energy to heat the regolith, the ACE Reactor uses an innovative method to electrically heat the regolith to temperatures over 1800ºC within a thermally ins ...
