  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. X-Band GaN Power Amplifiers for Long Range Space RF Telecommunications

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: O105

    The future capabilities of sensors and instrumentation deployed in space will continue to increase, resulting in increasing amounts of collected data. To reach these higher speed data rates, increases to the overall system gain of the communication link will be required. A deterministic method to increase system gain of a RF communication link is to provide higher transmitted RF power. However, ...

  7. Six-Axis Force-Torque Transducer for Mars 2018 Mission

    SBC: ATI Industrial Automation, Inc.            Topic: S502

    The use of automated robotic tooling is required in a number of space missions. It is possible to have better tool control if the robotic arm could report loads experienced by the tooling.ATI Industrial Automation proposes to develop and prove technologies to be used in a low weight, low outgassing multi-axis force and torque transducer that can be used at cryogenic temperatures. The transducer wi ...
