  2. Energy and Velocity Analyzer for Distributions of Electric Rockets

    SBC: Plasma Controls, LLC            Topic: T2

    Plasma Controls, LLC (SBC) and Colorado State University (RI) will mature an energy and species plasma diagnostic for use with plasma thrusters. The combined Energy and Velocity Analyzer for Distributions of Electric Rockets, or the lsquo;E-VADERrsquo;, is needed especially for characterizing the plasma plume of Hall thrusters, where researchers desire to know ion energies and charged species frac ...

  3. Hybrid Anode for Electrified Aircraft Propulsion

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: T15

    Electrified Aircraft Propulsion (EAP) research is part of NASA effort to improve aircraft fuel efficiency, emissions, and noise levels. New secondary battery chemistries are required to meet the 500 ndash; 700 Wh/kg cell level specific energy needs of UAM, all-electric helicopters and regional passenger aircraft. The cycle life, currently at asymp; 1500 ndash; 3000 cycles, also needs substantial i ...

  4. Autonomous Navigation on Icy Moons and Ocean Worlds

    SBC: VETH RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: T4

    Technology currently used for terrestrial navigation is extremely limited in the challenging environments on icy moons and ocean worlds such as Europa. Autonomous platforms used to collect data from beneath these ice and ocean surfaces cannot depend on access to satellite or any other electromagnetic communication. Autonomous systems in these environments are required to perform highly-complex tas ...

  5. Enhanced Real Time Distributed Strain and Temperature Monitoring for Rocket Ground Testing

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: T13

    IFOS proposes an innovative Brillouin sensing system ndash; B*Sensetrade; ndash; for enhanced, distributed strain and temperature measurements in harsh environments. Brillouin sensing provides both temperature and strain measurement along the entire length of fiber, allowing the entire fiber to act as a sensor. B*Sensetrade; will enable identification of defects, such as fatigue cracking or excess ...

  6. Braided Thin-Ply Tapes

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Opterus proposes to develop braided thin ply composite tapes. The tapes will be braided from ultra-thin spread-tow unidirectional carbon and glass ribbons and will enable a new source and form factor for thin-ply textiles. The resulting tapes will be especially useful for thin high strain composite space deployable structures where they will allow bias plies in long parts without requiring seams. ...

  7. Electric Field Prediction and Mapping Methods Within Spacecraft Enclosures

    SBC: Sonelite, Inc.            Topic: T5

    The proposed innovation is a new simulation tool for NASArsquo;s prediction and mitigation of hazardous electric fields created within the payload enclosure and similar electromagnetic field cavities of a launch vehicle and a spacecraft. The research will extend existing statistical power balance modeling methods to specific NASA requirements, includingnbsp; 1) Mapping the different electric field ...

  8. Dual Mode Green Monopropellant Propulsion System for Interplanetary Missions

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: T2

    Today many spacecraft carry two propulsion options: high thrust required for high acceleration maneuvers such as orbit insertion and rapid response; and low thrust required for station keeping and less critical maneuvers. A new class of non-toxic monopropellants, such as AF-M315E and LMP-103S, perform well in both high and low thrust regimes. Significant investments are maturing both monopropellan ...
