  2. Highly Sensitive Flash LADAR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T9

    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 ...

  3. Nanoengineered Hybrid Gas Sensors for Spacesuit Monitoring

    SBC: N5 Sensors, Inc.            Topic: T6

    N5 Sensors partnering with George Mason University (GMU) have demonstrated ultra-small, low-power gas sensors, ideally suited for integrated space suit monitoring. A single-chip carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2), and ammonia (NH3) sensors capable of operating at high-humidity conditions, different range of oxygen in the environment and with low-power consumption was demonstrated as a proof-of-conc ...

  4. Additive Manufacturing Sensor Fusion Technologies for Process Monitoring and Control.

    SBC: ARCTOS Technology Solutions, LLC            Topic: DLA18A001

    This Phase II project aims to assemble the key set of sensor modalities that are needed to reliably view the key process anomalies and properties of laser powder bed fusion. The research team will down-select from the Phase I sensors investigated and integrate the sensors into a sensor fusion software package that facilitates data collection and synchronization, and eventually feedback control of ...

  5. Power Balance Solver Enhanced by an Experimental Absorption Cross-Section Database

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: T5

    We propose the development of a user-friendly software tool for estimating the electric field distributions within spacecraft enclosures based on the Power Balance (PwB) method and enhanced by a database of experimentally determined Absorption Cross-Sections (ACS) of common equipment, components and cables.The software will be built around an already developed PwB solver that determines the statis ...

  6. 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 ...

  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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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. ...
