  1. Highly Sensitive Flash LADAR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T901

    To address the urgent need for 3D flash-lidar technology for landing on solar system bodies and for spacecraft rendezvous and docking with satellites, an effort is proposed to fabricate, characterize, and test a versatile, high-sensitivity InGaAs APD 3D flash lidar and to advance the technology-readiness level (TRL) of lidar technologies suitable for NASA mission requirements. Leveraging an existi ...

  2. Improved Forecasting of Solar Particle Events and their Effects on Space Electronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T602

    High-energy space radiation from Galactic Cosmic Rays and Solar Particle Events (SPEs) pose significant risks to equipment and astronaut health in NASA missions. Energetic particles from SPEs associated with flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) may adversely affect not only beyond-Low-Earth-Orbit missions, but also aircraft avionics, communications, and airline crew/passenger health. It is cru ...

  3. Satellite Swarm Localization and Control via Random Finite Set Statistics

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: T403

    The proposed novel program will develop and demonstrate a new approach to perform real-time relative vehicle localization within a swarm formation with application to communication-less coordination. These objectives are achieved by using Random Finite Sets statistics theory to solve the multiple object tracking problem. The swarm formation localization problem can be formulated as estimating the ...

  4. High-Gain, Low-Excess-Noise APD Arrays for Near-Single-Photon-Sensitive LADAR

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T901

    One of the challenges facing missions to other planetary bodies including Earth's Moon, Mars, Venus, Titan, Europa; and proximity operations (including sampling and landing) on small bodies such as asteroids and comets' is the ability to provide accurate altimetry for descent, then assess safe landing sites by surveying the landscape. To address NASA's need for space-hardened planetary entry, desc ...

  5. Empirical Optimization of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Advratech            Topic: T1204

    In this Phase I STTR project, pursuant to the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) and Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) interests, the proposed collaborative effort between WSU and Advratech will represent the first AM optimization framework of its kind, constructed entirely from experimental sensor data collected in-situ. Rather than using in-process data to inform limited "phy ...

  6. Highly Efficient Closed-Loop CO2 Removal System for Deep-Space ECLSS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T604

    TDA Research Inc.(TDA) in collaboration with University of Puerto Rico ? Mayaguez (UPRM is proposing to develop a highly efficient CO2 removal system based on UPRM proprietary strontium exchanged silico-alumino-phosphate (Sr-SAPO-34) for closed loop space craft cabin air re-vitalization during deep space missions.

  7. Thin Film Lithium Niobate Microring Modulators for Analog Photonics

    SBC: PARTOW Technologies LLC            Topic: T802

    Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) has been long regarded as the most attractive material for electro-optic modulation for high-performance optical communication systems of up to 100 GHz, as well as for its superior second-order optical non-linearity. The weakly confined LiNbO3 waveguides formed by diffusion or implantation of dopants do not lend themselves to high-level chip integration. One key novel tech ...

  8. Deployable Ka-Band Reflectarray

    SBC: Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems, Inc.            Topic: T501

    Tyvak, in collaboration with UCLA, proposes a novel approach to the challenge of creating a large reflector for Ka-band high data rate links. We propose to attach the primary reflector surface permanently to the surface of a 6U spacecraft and illuminate the reflector using a Cassegrain style subreflector with an illuminating antenna that is permanently mounted to the transmitter / receiver inside ...

  9. NONA Repair of Composite Structures

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: T1202

    While much attention is necessarily focused on the evaluation and certification of the materials and processes involved in adhesive bonding, development is still needed in decreasing the cost, time, and complexity of the current repair concepts. A material and processing system is needed that allows the design, infusion, and cure of composite repairs without the current roadblocks imposed by ovens ...

  10. Bi-Metallic Additive Manufacturing Close-Out of Coolant Channels for Large Liquid Rocket Engine (LRE) Nozzles

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: T1204

    This NASA sponsored STTR project will investigate methods for close-out of large, liquid rocket engine nozzle, coolant channels utilizing robotic laser and pulsed-arc additive manufacturing methods. Copper to Nickel alloy interface strength will be quantified and metallurgical characterization completed. A thermal model based on Rosenthal?s analytical expression for a moving heat source, which has ...
