  1. Autonomous Spacecraft Power Scheduling

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AeroAstro and the University of Colorado propose to develop an autonomous satellite power control system to dynamically monitor, schedule and distribute power resources on microsatellites , while remaining sensitive to the mission objectives. The Autonomous Power Scheduler (APS) will maximize power efficiency and availability while being situationally-aware of bus conditions. The concept system wo ...

  2. MEMS Propulsion Technology Utilizing Decomposing Nitrous Oxide Propellant

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A low cost, high performance propulsion system does not exist that can support small and micro-satellite requirements, that is not burdened with severe hazard and toxicity issues. The VACCO Micro Propulsion System (MPS) represents a leap forward in the application of ChEMS? (metal MEMS) propulsion technology for nanosat and picosat missions, however its capability is limited by reliance on low-Isp ...

  3. Active Skin for Turbulent Drag Reduction

    SBC: AEROPROBE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Drag reduction for aerial vehicles has a range of positive ramifications: reduced fuel consumption with the associated economic and environmental consequences, larger flight range and endurance and higher achievable flight speeds. Recent numerical results yielded solid evidence that very small disturbances in the form of a spanwise traveling force wave on a surface could reduce drag by 70%. Our pa ...

  4. Highly Reliable LOX Pump for Vehicle Loading Operations

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will present an innovative Phase I research and design plan for a reliable LOX pumping system for use in NASA vehicle loading. Due to seal problems with the current LOX loading pumps, the main focus of the Phase I effort will involve design and development of an innovative sealing solution that does not use a failure prone mechanical seal. The seal solution proposed is a combination ...

  5. A Long-Duration Commercial Microgravity Mouse Habitat: Waste/Odor Technologies

    SBC: Bioastronautical Systems Development Co.            Topic: N/A

    The Bioastronautical Systems Development Company (BSDC) proposes to develop habitat technologies for conducting long-term commercial research with mice in microgravity. Our research addresses solicitation section B4.02 Space Commercialization for the design/development of microgravity payloads for space station applications that lead to commercial products or services. In partnership with BioServe ...

  6. Microwave Rain Gauge

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a plan for the Design and Development of line of sight area averaged rain measurements using microwave backscatter techniques. The line averaged (and area covered) could be made variable, from as low as 100m to several km. The individual units can thus be used for both local measurements as well as for extending the observation over rain-cells. The techniques might be exten ...

  7. Utilizing MIL-STD-1553B Digital Data Bus Devices Across an IEEE-1394A Serial Bus

    SBC: Seakr Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The MIL-STD-1553B Bus is a widely supported data bus for avionics applications and compatible with most of the avionics equipment. However, its low data rate (1 Mbps) and command-response architecture are not suitable for many modern applications such as on-board autonomy. Therefore, the avionics industry recently has been interested in adopting the IEEE 1394A Bus as the next generation avionics b ...

  9. Next Generation Write Head for Commercial Holographic Data Storage

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Enormous data capacities and high read/write rates make optical holographic data stor-age (HDS) systems the most promising approach for next-generation computer mass-storage solutions. Recent breakthroughs in holographic recording media have dramatically accelerated the development of commercial HDS products, and have shifted the development focus to opti-mization of HDS optical systems and compon ...

  10. General Aviation Aircraft Information Network Server

    SBC: Dynamic Systems Integration, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DSI will develop an integrated backplane/server solution for the SATS cockpit. The GAAINS (General Aviation Aircraft Information Network Server) solution will provide the foundation for tomorrows SATS cockpit. DSI believes in the spirit of SATS, and through the integration of COTS technologies combined with current open architecture standards, a new enabling platform will be developed which increa ...
