  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. Visualizing and Comparing Exploration Plan Alternatives and Change Effects (xPACE)

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: T1101

    Future human space flight missions will take astronauts deeper into space and require increased crew independence from Earth-based flight controllers (crew autonomy). Consequently, they will need to perform more tasks and a greater diversity of tasks. A critical resource for meeting these challenges is greater reliance on robots that can operate with more autonomously [NASA Roadmap TA4]. Greater r ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Cubesat Hyperspectral Imager

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: T801

    Mapping spectrometers have been extremely useful in multiple NASA applications, from Earth climate monitoring to identifying hydrocarbon lakes on Titan. Traditionally, imaging spectroscopy systems are not only heavy but also large in order to accommodate the long path lengths needed for spectral separation. There are several varieties, such as push-broom and scanning imaging spectrometers, but h ...

  7. Soft Robotic Manipulators with Enhanced Perception using Multimodal Sensory Skins

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: T1101

    We propose that the key to robotic automation in unstructured environments is compliant robotic manipulators that can tolerate, sense, and leverage contact in a feedback loop. We will demonstrate an instrumented end-effector that will be capable of enhanced perception through observed and controlled contact. This approach requires: (i) a network of sensors capable of capturing the highly compliant ...

  8. Active Radiation Shield

    SBC: Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories Inc.            Topic: T301

    DEC-Shield technology offers the means to generate electric power from cosmic radiation sources and fuse dissimilar systems and functionality into a structural component to create a Multi-functional Structure (MFS). DEC-Shield integrated into MFS technology can be used to generate electric power and provide radiation protection in a space vehicle; even maximizing that protection by spreading the ...

  9. Penetrator-Compatible Microfluidic Analyzer For Lipids, Amino Acid Chirality, and pH

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: T803

    HJ Science & Technology (HJS&T) and Georgia Institute of Technology (GIT) propose to develop a novel penetrator-compatible technology capable of detecting key organic molecules, biomarkers, and indicators of habitability on primary astrobiological targets including icy moons like Europa and Enceladus. The proposed innovation is a novel combination of microfluidic automated colorimetric and fluo ...

  10. A Novel, Membrane-Based Bioreactor Design to Enable a Closed-Loop System on Earth and Beyond

    SBC: Mango Materials, Inc.            Topic: T604

    The proposed innovation is a membrane bioreactor system to produce a biopolymer from methane gas. This new methane fermentation process will expand and advance current gas delivery techniques to create affordable fermentation methods on Earth and beyond. Mango Materials is currently working to scale up and commercialize the production of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) from methane, but its scaled-up ...
