  1. A Collective Detection Based GPS Receiver for Small Satellites

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: T801

    To solve the problem of autonomous navigation on small satellite platforms less than 20 kg, we propose to develop an onboard orbit determination receiver for small LEO satellites which lack stable Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS), continuous GPS coverage, or ground tracking. The system is a refinement of existing spaceborne receiver technology built around a new, innovative collec ...

  2. Acoustic Reduction of Flow Separation

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC            Topic: T201

    Airfoils produce more lift and less drag when the boundary layer is attached to the airfoil. With most aircraft there are combinations of airspeed and angle of attack where the boundary layer at least partially detaches from the airfoil. Reducing boundary layer detachment will increase lift and reduce drag. This will reduce fuel consumption saving money for the operator and improving control fo ...

  4. Active Vibration Isolation System for Mobile Launch Platform Ground Support Equipment

    SBC: Balcones Technologies LLC            Topic: T6

    During our Phase I STTR effort, Balcones Technologies, LLC and The University of Texas Center for Electromechanics (CEM) successfully achieved all Phase I objectives and developed a concept design for an active Vibration Isolation System (VIS) that fully meets all requirements defined or implied in STTR 2007-1 Subtopic T6.02. Now the Balcones Technologies - CEM team proposes to develop, test, and ...

  5. Advanced Simulation Framework for Design and Analysis of Space Propulsion Systems

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: T901

    The innovation proposed here is a high-performance, high-fidelity framework in the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code called Loci-STREAM to enable accurate, fast and robust simulations of unsteady multiphase flows such as combustion involving liquid-gas phases in liquid rocket injectors and solid-gas phases in solid rocket motors, and cryogenic cavitation in delivery systems of liquid rocket ...

  6. Advanced Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Frequency selective surfaces (FSSs) are periodic arrays of conductive elements/patches that cause a particular reflection response when illuminated with high frequency electromagnetic energy. nbsp;These arrays arenbsp;used for high frequency filters and in antenna applications.nbsp; We propose to use FSSs as multi-functional sensors. nbsp;FSS sensors are unpowered, low-profile (thin), wireless and ...

  7. Advanced Unsteady Turbulent Combustion Simulation Capability for Space Propulsion Systems

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: T901

    The innovation proposed here is a high performance, high fidelity simulation capability to enable accurate, fast and robust simulation of unsteady turbulent, reacting flows involving cryogenic propellants (such as LOX/LH2 and LOX/LCH4). The key features of this proposed capability are: (a) Hybrid RANS-LES (HRLES) methodology, and (b) flamelet modeling for turbulent combustion incorporated in a pr ...

  8. An Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  9. Anytime Summarization for Remote Robot Operations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: T103

    NASA plans to use intelligent planetary rovers to improve the productivity and safety of human explorers. A key challenge in using robots for human exploration is orienting remote personnel about robot operations, as latency and communication constraints make eyes-on monitoring impractical. Summary measures are needed to identify what progress the robot has made and, when progress is impeded, to i ...

  10. 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 ...
