  1. Combat Systems of the Future

    SBC: Advanced Systems/Supportability Engineering Technologies And Tools, Inc.            Topic: N05149

    The S-351 mini-sub is a prototype of the Dry Combat Submersible (DCS). This prototype was established as a means of risk reduction prior to a full commitment to the DCS program. Both of these platforms have an operational need to transit with minimum operator fatigue safely to a pre-defined point and covertly deploy and retrieve SEALS. To meet these operational needs, these platforms require upgra ...

  2. Liquid cooled viscoelastic actuation for robust legged robot locomotion

    SBC: APPTRONIK INC            Topic: H601

    Apptronik Systems in cooperation with the University of Texass Human Centered Robotics Lab (HCRL), Carnegie Mellon Universitys Robotics Institute and Italys National Research Institute (CNR), will collaborate to develop a new type of exoskeleton that is founded upon Apptroniks Visco-Elastic Liquid Cooled Actuator (VLCA). The fundamental goal of this program is the development of a powered exoskel ...

  3. Liquid-cooled actuation to achieve greater degrees of freedom and range of motion in untethered exoskeletons

    SBC: APPTRONIK INC            Topic: H6018135

    Apptronik Systems Inc., in cooperation with the University of Texas Human Centered Robotics Lab (HCRL) and Huston-Tillotson University Robotics Lab (a historically black college and university HBCU), endeavor to advance the movement capabilities and modularity of the exoskeleton being developed under contract #H92222-17-C-0050. The primary goal of this program is to optimize the range of movement ...

  4. New Flexible FR Polyurethane Foams for Energy Absorption Applications

    SBC: Gordon Nelson and Associates            Topic: T703

    Project involves development of new flexible FR polyurethane (PU)insulation foams through a non-toxic environmentally friendly composite approach. Foams have bound-in polymeric phosphonate FRs, with added synergists and smoke suppressants. Such foams will not leach FR. Foams have fine cell structure and excellent flexible foam properties. Cone performance of the identified foam family (368 peak ...

  5. Integrated Sensors for the Evaluation of Structural Integrity of Inflatable Habitats

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T1203

    Inflatable pressurized habitats are envisioned as a practical way to build shelters much larger than landing craft for astronauts and their scientific operations on Mars, the moon and elsewhere. These habitats maintain their inflated shape via high-strength Vectran webbing. The piezoresistive extensometers developed through this STTR program can be directly integrated into or onto Vectran webbing ...

  6. A Cubesat Hyperspectral Imager

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: T801

    Mapping spectrometers have been extremely useful in multiple NASA applications, from Earth composition mapping 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. Highly Sensitive Flash LADAR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T901

    To address the urgent need for 3D flash-lidar technology for landing on solar system bodies and for spacecraft rendezvous and docking with satellites, an effort is proposed to fabricate, characterize, and test a versatile, high-sensitivity InGaAs APD 3D flash lidar and to advance the technology-readiness level (TRL) of lidar technologies suitable for NASA mission requirements. Leveraging an existi ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Adaptive Resource Estimation and Visualization for Planning Robotic Missions

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: T1101

    NASA's future human exploration missions will include remotely operated rovers performing surface exploration and science, as well as free-flyers to reduce the need for human Extra Vehicular Activity. Technologies are needed for remote operation and supervised autonomy of robots. Consider the Resource Prospector (RP) lunar mission. For RP it will be necessary to accomplish as much as possible in t ...

  10. Empirical Optimization of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Universal Technology Corporaration            Topic: T1204

    In this Phase II STTR project, the proposed collaborative effort between UTC, AFIT, and ULRF represents a crucial step forward for AM. UTC’s unique AM optimization and process control framework, constructed entirely from experimental sensor data collected in-situ, will finally transfer technology from our SLM test bed system to state-of-the-art and commercial-grade systems, including a Concept ...
