  1. Robotics MobileRobot Navigation

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: T401

    Robots and rovers exploring planets need to autonomously navigate to specified locations. Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) and the University of Minnesota will develop a navigational system that employs an IMU and a 3D FLASH Lidar camera manufactured at ASC. The system will furnish both the position of the rover and an elevation map of the terrain. The map will be useful in detecting ha ...

  2. Attitude Control Enhancement Using Distributed Wing Load Sensing for Dynamic Servoelastic Control

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: T402

    Fly-by-feel uses distributed sensing of forces along the lifting surfaces of an aircraft. Whether such measurements are made via hot films, pressure sensors, or strain gauges, all can provide distributed force information that must be intelligently fused and utilized to achieve performance goals. Fly-by-feel will be used to achieve robust disturbance rejection, mass property augmentation, and aero ...

  3. An LED-Based Solar Simulator for Research, Development, and Testing of Photovoltaic Space Power Systems

    SBC: Angstrom Designs, Inc.            Topic: T201

    Solar cells are the critical power source for the majority of space missions. The advancement from single junction silicon cells to current, state-of-the-art, triple junction, germanium cells enabled greater mission power per weight, stowed volume and deployed area. Near-term, advanced solar cell technologies will range from 4 to 6 junctions, and include a variety of band gaps.Solar cell testing ...

  4. Optical Feather and Foil for Shape and Dynamic Load Sensing of Critical Flight Surfaces

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: T402

    Future flight vehicles may comprise complex flight surfaces requiring coordinated in-situ sensing and actuation. Inspired by the complexity of the flight surfaces on the wings and tail of a bird, it is argued that increasing the number of interdependent flight surfaces from just a few, as is normal in an airplane, to many, as in the feathers of a bird, can significantly enlarge the flight envelop ...

  5. Bayesian Framework Based Damage Segmentation (BFDS) with Time-Reversal Tomography (TRT) for Damage Characterization in Complex Aircraft Structures

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T901

    To meet the NASA's need for innovative technologies that decrease turn-around time for inspections and assessments for safe operations of aircraft and spacecraft, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII), teaming up with Prof. Fuh-Gwo Yuan at North Carolina State University (NCSU), proposes to develop an innovative guided-wave based Time-Reversal Tomography (TRT) technology and Bayesian Framework base ...

  6. Modular Electric Propulsion Test Bed Aircraft

    SBC: ROLLING HILLS RESEARCH CORP            Topic: T901

    An all electric aircraft test bed is proposed to provide a dedicated development environment for the rigorous study and advancement of electrically powered aircraft. The new test bed aircraft will be developed from an existing conventional airframe and provide a dedicated platform to study, design, and test electrically powered propulsion systems for use in commercial, military, and general aviat ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Radiation Hard Monolithic SDRAM to Support DDR2 and DDR3 Architectures

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: T1501

    There is no rad hard SDRAM currently available to support DDR2 and DDR3 applications. Space Micro proposes to build a radiation hardened by design (RHBD) SDRAM memory, using a modified version of our HF-Core Memory Controller to solve all the single event effects issues (SEU, SEFI and multiple bit errors). The RHBD SDRAM will be manufactured on known radiation characterized eDRAM (embedded DRAM) ...

  9. Particle Flow Physics Modeling for Extreme Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T403

    The liberation of particles induced by rocket plume flow from spacecraft landing on unprepared regolith of the Moon, Mars, and other destinations poses high mission risks for robotic and human exploration activities. This process occurs in a combination of "extreme environments" that combine low gravity, little or no atmosphere, with rocket exhaust gas flow that is supersonic and partially rarefie ...

  10. Local Navigation in GNSS and Magnetometer-Denied Environments

    SBC: PRIORIA ROBOTICS HOLDINGS, INC.            Topic: T501

    The proposed solution exploits recent advances in computer vision to conceive of a single-camera + gyro + accelerometer vision-based navigation solution such that the processing will be lightweight (requiring only a single optical flow sample per frame). Known landmarks (natural or artificial) will have absolute positions known to planetary exploration worker robots. The worker robot can identif ...
