  1. Wireless Passive Nanoparticle based Intelligent Sensor System for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc.            Topic: T13

    Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of a wireless, passive, nanoparticle-based sensor system. The sensor in its current form can be used to measure real time temperatures and pressures wirelessly without the need of an external energy source. It should be noted that the same sensing principle can be used for strain monitoring as well. It comprises of a micr ...

  2. Wide Bandgap Nanostructured Space Photovoltaics

    SBC: Firefly Technologies            Topic: T3

    Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes an STTR program for the development of a wide-bandgap GaP-based space solar cell capable of efficient operation at temperatures above 300oC. Efficiency enhancement will be achieved by the introduction of InGaP quantum wells within the active region of the wide-gap base material. The introduction of these nanoscale features ...

  3. Vortex Control for Low-Noise DEP Urban Aircraft

    SBC: Surfplasma, Inc.            Topic: T15

    Suppression of noise from aircraft is a vital NASA goal, especially important for the vision of Urban Air Mobility. Small urban aircraft may utilize Distributed Electric Propulsion along with advanced structural and electric motor/storage technologies to achieve the necessary flight capability. However, these aircraft utilize propellers or fans to achieve the necessary thrust, with attendant commu ...

  4. Vision-Based Navigation for Formation Flight onboard ISS

    SBC: Jaycon Systems LLC            Topic: T11

    The proposed Phase II supports completion of the RINGS science missions on ISS using SVGS as real-time sensor for the EMFF maneuver. During Phase I, SVGS-based navigation of RINGS was developed and tested on a 3DOF ground-based platform, and mechanical and electrical integration of RINGS with the free-flying robotic platforms on ISS (Astrobee) was designed in detail. SVGS was deployed and tested o ...

  5. Transient Acoustic Environment Prediction Tool for Launch Vehicles in Motion During Early Lift-Off

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T1

    Launch vehicles experience extreme acoustic loads dominated by rocket plume interactions with ground structures during liftoff, which can produce damaging vibro-acoustic loads on the vehicle and payloads if not properly understood and mitigated against. Existing capabilities for modeling turbulent plume physics are too dissipative to accurately resolve the acoustic propagation and detailed vehicle ...

  6. Thermal Stir Welding of High Strength and High Temperature Alloys for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: T901

    The Keystone and MSU team propose to build on the successful feasibility demonstration conducted during Phase I to complete the development of solid-state joining of high strength and temperature alloys utilizing the Thermal Stir Welding process. The focus alloy for this project is Haynes 230; the alloy of choice typically utilized in rocket engine nozzel skirts. This class of alloy is difficult t ...

  7. Testing of COTS Systems in Space

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T6

    For long duration space missions beyond LEO, the complexity of the missions and the latency of communications with Earth will require HPC systems that would be prohibitively expensive if qualified under traditional guidelines for high reliability space systems. There is a wealth COTS hardware that could potentially be used for HPC systems for non-critical tasks within heavily shielded spacecraft c ...

  9. Smallsat Swarm Sparse Aperture SAR for Recon and Surveillance (SSSASAfRaS)

    SBC: VisSidus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T4

    The goal of the proposed Phase I work is to demonstrate the feasibility of the coordination and control of a low cardinality (n=12) swarm of smallsats that realizes a distributed Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) in low Earth orbit. Preliminary mission and spacecraft design work has shown that the swarm can support SAR imaging in the L-band (1.35 GHz) with a ground range resolution finer than 10 m wi ...

  10. Provably Convergent Game-Theoretic Coordination for Space Vehicle Swarms

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: T4

    This program will develop a communication-less solution to decentralized control and task coordination for multi-agent systems (MAS). Reducing the operational burden of MAS swarms on human operators will greatly improve the capability of spacecraft constellations and distant planetary explorations. The proposed solution would guide the MAS towards a cost minimized set of actions by performing grad ...
