  1. Gateway Management through Adaptive, Autonomous, Fault Identification & Diagnosis and Reconfiguration/Replanning/Rescheduling Optimization

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: T4

    The lunar Gateway is a lunar space station that will orbit the Moon in a highly elliptical Near-Rectilinear Halo Orbit (NRHO). The Gateway is envisioned as a multi-purpose spacecraft serving as a temporary habitat for astronauts, a science laboratory (for crewed and un-crewed experiments), a communications store/relay, a holding area for other spacecraft and devices, etc. The Gateway requires auto ...

  5. Testing of COTS Systems in Space Radiation Environments

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T6

    For long duration space missions beyond LEO there is a wealth of COTS hardware that could potentially be implemented for non-critical tasks within heavily shielded spacecraft cabins. To employ COTS systems for such missions, we propose to use a simulation/experimental/statistical approach for risk acceptance Radiation Hardness Assurance (RHA) suitable for Cis-Lunar and Cis-Mars missions. The simul ...

  6. Data-Driven Modeling of Directed Energy Deposition (DED) for Defect-Free Builds using Real-Time Monitoring Approaches

    SBC: FORMALLOY TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: T12

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) will play a large role in the development for NASArsquo;s next generation of space flight systems. However, without a deeper understanding of various additive processes available, it is difficult to use the technologies reliably. In order to predict the results for dimensional accuracy, microstructure formation, and defect initiation points, FormAlloy and New Mexico Sta ...

  7. Tunable, Reconfigurable Metamaterials Using Liquid Crystal Medium

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: T8

    We propose to take advantage of the tunable, isotropic properties of Liquid Crystals (LCs) to design two different models for a tunable, LC-based metamaterial (LCM) device. This device will be designed with optimal materials and structures to operate within the visible-to-near-IR spectrum with (a) the capability to tune to multiple wavelengths, (b) the ability to respond to and function with diffe ...
