  1. Efficient cFS-based On-board Lamberts Solution for DSMs

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: T11

    Distributed Spacecraft Missions (DSM) architectures provide unique scientific and programmatic benefits including multipoint in-situ measurements, multi-angle viewpoints, and improved understanding of the connections between separately measured phenomena and their time variations. However, these missions impose significant operational demands on ground tracking resources and mission operators alik ...

  2. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  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. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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. ...

  10. 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 ...
