  1. Electronic Procedure Verification and Workflow Management System

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A2

    Procedures play a large role in successfully operating complex test equipment. They provide step-by-step instructions for system check-out, experimental set-up, test plans, and responding to off-nominal situations. As NASA  moves away from traditional paper procedures to more flexible electronic procedures, there is an opportunity for a more flexible and efficient electronic procedure review, ...

  2. Flexible Agent-based Communications for Exploration

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: H6

    Because close collaboration between the crew and mission control will not be practical for inter-planetary exploration, NASA envisions the need for an intelligent autonomous agent that can continually integrate data from the spacecraft or lunar/planetary base to advise the crew during their mission. TRACLabs has designed and prototyped such an agent called a cognitive architecture for space explor ...

  3. Robust Lightweight CNT Wiring for Space Systems

    SBC: Dexmat Inc.            Topic: S3

    NASA is challenged to find ways of effectively shielding sensitive electronic equipment from electromagnetic interference (EMI) without adding significant weight to space flight vehicles and satellites (the heavier they are the more fuel they need to achieve orbit).  EMI shielding for wire and cables is an attractive opportunity for weight reduction. However, with the advent of highly reusabl ...

  4. Deep Learning Enhanced Fidelity InSAR Toolkit (DEFIT)

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: S5

    Lynntech, in collaboration with Southern Methodist University (SMU) Earth Sciences, proposes to develop a new deep learning-based toolkit that is useful for enhancing the fidelity of results derived from Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) interferograms. The automated deep learning tool performs a spatial–temporal analysis of multiple InSAR images, to yield a high fidelity esti ...

  7. ADAMANT: Adaptive Manipulation for Tasks

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: Z5

    Robots will play an important role in NASA's upcoming missions to the Moon and beyond.  More than just remote sensors, they will be expected to manipulate their environment in a complex and useful way - carrying objects, using tools, and assisting the crew with various physical activities.  NASA has been developing world-class dexterous end effectors for years. Unfortunately, develop ...

  9. Ultra-Stable ALLVAR Alloy Development for Space Telescopes

    SBC: Thermal Expansion Solutions, Inc.            Topic: S2

    This NASA SBIR Phase I proposal is in response to the need for Ultra-Stable Telescope Structures and is designed to evaluate ALLVAR Alloys for their potential as metering and support structures for optics that are critical to NASA’s future missions. Telescopes used for astrophysics, exoplanet, and planetary studies require picometer stability over several minutes to hours. Building large sup ...
