  3. A Self-Regulating Freezable Heat Exchanger for Spacecraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T601

    A spacecraft thermal control system must keep the vehicle, avionics and atmosphere (if crewed) within a defined temperature range. Since water is non-toxic and good for heat transport, it is typically used as the coolant that circulates within the crew cabin boundary. This loop then interfaces with another low freeze point fluid, such as ammonia, for transport of heat to a radiator where the tempe ...

  4. New Flexible FR Polyurethane Foams for Energy Absorption Applications

    SBC: Gordon Nelson and Associates            Topic: T703

    Project involves development of new flexible FR polyurethane (PU)insulation foams through a non-toxic environmentally friendly composite approach. Foams have bound-in polymeric phosphonate FRs, with added synergists and smoke suppressants. Such foams will not leach FR. Foams have fine cell structure and excellent flexible foam properties. Cone performance of the identified foam family (368 peak ...

  5. Closed-Loop Control of the Thermal Stir Welding Process to Enable Rapid Process / Part Qualification

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: T901

    Thermal Stir Welding (TSW) provides advancement over the more conventional Friction Stir Welding (C-FSW) process because it separates the primary processes variables thereby allowing independent control of metal stirring and forging from the stir zone temperature. However, the feedback for precise control of the stir zone temperature, and hence the process parameters to sustain that temperature wi ...

  8. Launch Weather Decision Support System

    SBC: Radiometrics Corporation            Topic: T1

    NASA wants a cost-effective atmospheric remote sensing system providing accurate temperature and humidity profiles to least 10 km height in clear and cloudy conditions. Radiometrics Microwave Profiler (MP) products currently provide accurate temperature and humidity profiles in good agreement with radiosondes to 3 km height. Good agreement can be extended beyond 10 km height using variational retr ...

  9. uG-LilyPond- Floating Plant Pond for Microgravity

    SBC: Space Lab Technologies, LLC            Topic: T7

    Regenerative space life support will undoubtedly require food production, to recover nutrients and close the carbon loop in a spacecraft habitat. Aquatic plants have enormous potential for edible biomass production but have been little studied as potential food crops for space applications. The proposed μG-LilyPond™ is an autonomous environmentally controlled floating plant cultivation system ...
