  1. Cure in Place Hybridsil Polyimide Materials for Next Generation Additively Manufactured TPS Heat Shields

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T12

    Through the proposed NASA STTR, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will design and empirically optimize an innovative, commercially scalable additive manufacturing process integrating reactively deposited HybridSil polyimide nanocomposites for next-generation Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) employed on human rated spacecraft. NanoSonicrsquo;s material technology and Virginia Techrsquo;s additive manufac ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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. ...

  6. Nanoporous Carbon Nitride Photocatalyst Based Water Recovery System

    SBC: CertainTech, Inc            Topic: T6

    Water recovery from wastewater sources is key to long duration human exploration missions. Without substantial water recovery, life support system launch weights are practically impossible. Water recovery systems currently used on the international space station (ISS) are complex, involving high temperature and pressures to recycle water from humidity condensate and urine.nbsp; The process also us ...

  7. Hierarchical Metasurface Optics for Multiplexed Visible to Terahertz Cross-Band Systems

    SBC: Rochester Precision Optics, LLC            Topic: T8

    The aim of the proposed program is to design metasurface structures to manipulate electromagnetic waves of extremelynbsp;different frequencies, from visible light to THz.

  8. Metal-Organic Framework-Sensitized ChemFET Sensors for Spacecraft Water Monitoring Systems

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T6

    The objective of this STTR research effort is to demonstrate the use of select metal-organic framework (MOF) constructs as active, multi-analyte sensing element in spacecraft water monitoring systems. MOFs are extended one, two, and three-dimensional coordination networks with uniform porosity and large surface area. The rational selection of both the metal cluster nodes and multi-dentate linkers ...

  9. Vortex Control for Low-Noise DEP Urban Aircraft

    SBC: Surfplasma, Inc.            Topic: T15

    Suppression of noise from aircraft is a vital NASA goal, especially important for the vision of Urban Air Mobility. Small urban aircraft may utilize Distributed Electric Propulsion along with advanced structural and electric motor/storage technologies to achieve the necessary flight capability. However, these aircraft utilize propellers or fans to achieve the necessary thrust, with attendant commu ...

  10. Provably Convergent Game-Theoretic Coordination for Space Vehicle Swarms

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: T4

    This program will develop a communication-less solution to decentralized control and task coordination for multi-agent systems (MAS). Reducing the operational burden of MAS swarms on human operators will greatly improve the capability of spacecraft constellations and distant planetary explorations. The proposed solution would guide the MAS towards a cost minimized set of actions by performing grad ...
