  1. Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser Based 3D Imaging

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: T7

    The NASA Constellation program has a need to non-destructively test (NDT) non-metallic materials (foams, Shuttle Tile, Avcoat, etc) for defects such as delaminations and voids. While imaging systems at terahertz frequencies (0.3 to 3 THz) have been demonstrated for 2D imaging of similar materials, they have not yet demonstrate full 3D volumetric imaging. To meet this need, LongWave Photonics pro ...

  2. Advanced Unsteady Turbulent Combustion Simulation Capability for Space Propulsion Systems

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: T901

    The innovation proposed here is a high performance, high fidelity simulation capability to enable accurate, fast and robust simulation of unsteady turbulent, reacting flows involving cryogenic propellants (such as LOX/LH2 and LOX/LCH4). The key features of this proposed capability are: (a) Hybrid RANS-LES (HRLES) methodology, and (b) flamelet modeling for turbulent combustion incorporated in a pr ...

  3. Next-Generation Ion Thruster Design Tool to Support Future Space Missions

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: T301

    Computational tools that accurately predict the performance of electric propulsion devices are highly desirable by NASA and the broader electric propulsion community. Large investments in running the long duration test programs (> 20 kHrs) at NASA GRC can be reduced with computer models and allow more focus on exploring the NEXT ion thruster design for future space missions. The current state of e ...

  4. Extensible Data Set Architecture for Systems Analysis

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: T201

    The process of aircraft design requires the integration of data from individual analysis of aerodynamic, structural, thermal, and behavioral properties of a flight vehicle. At present, there is no simple way to integrate the results of the analyses early in the design process. Aurora Flight Sciences and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory propose to ...

  5. Wide Range Flow and Heat Flux Sensors for In-Flight Flow Characterization

    SBC: Tao Of Systems Integration Inc            Topic: T2

    The tracking of critical flow features (CFFs) such as stagnation point, flow separation, shock, and transition in flight provides insight into actual aircraft performance/safety. Sensing of these CFFs across flight regimes involves numerous challenges such as a wide temperature/pressure range from subsonic to hypersonic flows. Tao Systems, Mesoscribe Technologies and Virginia Tech propose to devel ...

  6. Enhanced Carbon Nanotube Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: T601

    The proposed innovation utilizes carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coated with pseudo-capacitive MnO2 material as nano-composite electrode and ionic electrolyte for the construction of ultracapacitors. This novel approach of using nano-structured CNTs architectures provides high surface area of attachment of MnO2 nano-particles to maximize the charge efficiency and power capacity and to reduce series resist ...

  7. Magnetically Modified Asymmetric Supercapacitors

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: T601

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is for the development of an asymmetric supercapacitor that will have improved energy density and cycle life. Supercapacitors that utilize an aqueous electrolyte are limited to a maximum voltage of 1 volt due to the decomposition of water. Methods used to increase voltage include use of an organic electrolyte, which introduces additional comp ...

  8. Radiation Resistant, Reconfigurable, Shape Memory Metal Rubber Space Arrays

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T3

    NanoSonic has demonstrated that Shape Memory Metal RubberTM (SM-MR) adaptive skins exhibit reconfigurable and durable RF properties. It is hypothesized that such morphing skins shall also exhibit durable radiation resistance upon morphing; a property that few, if any, flexible materials offer. Typical highly filled or metal evaporated nanocomposites crack and spall upon flexation, and cannot be ...

  9. Self Assembled Carbon Nanotube Enhanced Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T601

    The objective of this NASA STTR program is to develop single wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) based ultracapacitors for energy storage devices (ESD) application, using NanoSonic's patented molecular level self-assembly process performed at room temperature. Specifically, we would combine advances in metallic SWCNTs, metal and oxide nanoclusters, and polymeric materials and electrostatic self-assembly ...

  10. Microchannel Thermo Catalytic Ignition for Advanced Mono- and Bipropellants

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: T301

    Small and micro-spacecrafts require the efficient, micro-propulsion systems. Chemical micro-propulsion is best suited for use as primary thrust, orbital insertion and attitude control because of its high energy density. When grouped into arrays for larger thrust applications, micro-propulsion devices provide high propulsive flexibility or can be used as igniters. The proposed effort will focus ...
