  1. Prediction of Strutural Response and Fluid-Induced Vibration in Turbomachinery

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Advanced turbomachinery components play a critical role in launch vehicle and spacecraft liquid rocket propulsion systems. To achieve desired efficiencies, extremely tight tolerances are often imposed between inducer blades and shrouds or other system components which sets up strong interactions that influence both the aerodynamics and the structural performance of blades and vanes. These transien ...

  2. Unified In-Space Propulsion Framework for Prediction of Plume-Induced Spacecraft Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Chemical contamination of spacecraft components as well as thermal and force loading from firing liquid propellant thrusters are critical concerns for in-space propulsion applications. Gas molecular contamination and liquid droplet deposition due to incomplete combustion threaten to damage surface materials, sensitive instruments and optical sensors, and poses major risks for mission success. Liqu ...

  3. High-Gain, Low-Excess-Noise APD Arrays for Near-Single-Photon-Sensitive LADAR

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T901

    One of the challenges facing missions to other planetary bodies including Earth's Moon, Mars, Venus, Titan, Europa; and proximity operations (including sampling and landing) on small bodies such as asteroids and comets' is the ability to provide accurate altimetry for descent, then assess safe landing sites by surveying the landscape. To address NASA's need for space-hardened planetary entry, desc ...

  4. Empirical Optimization of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Advratech            Topic: T1204

    In this Phase I STTR project, pursuant to the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) and Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) interests, the proposed collaborative effort between WSU and Advratech will represent the first AM optimization framework of its kind, constructed entirely from experimental sensor data collected in-situ. Rather than using in-process data to inform limited "phy ...

  9. Sustainable Water Purification

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T603

    Newly developed phase-engineered and low dimensional materials have opened the door to the design of materials structures that exhibit extremely efficient ionic transport. Recently, a new type of electro-filtration system designed to convert thermal power into purified water from salt water (or other ionic pollutants) has been demonstrated in the lab. The system is based on a bi-phasic nanoplate ...

  10. Thin Film Lithium Niobate Microring Modulators for Analog Photonics

    SBC: PARTOW Technologies LLC            Topic: T802

    Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) has been long regarded as the most attractive material for electro-optic modulation for high-performance optical communication systems of up to 100 GHz, as well as for its superior second-order optical non-linearity. The weakly confined LiNbO3 waveguides formed by diffusion or implantation of dopants do not lend themselves to high-level chip integration. One key novel tech ...
