  1. Validated Engineering Tools for Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Opterus Research and Development, Inc. proposes to develop and validate multi-scale thin-ply High Strain Composites (HSCs) constitutive modeling tools for incorporation into commercial finite element analysis codes. The constitutive models will capture the time-temperature-load-deformation viscoelastic characteristics common to HSCs as well as the yielding or permanent deformation associated with ...

  2. A Scalable Gas-Particle Flow Simulation Tool for Lander Plume-Surface Interaction and Debris Prediction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T9

    Plume-regolith interaction during propulsive landing results in (1) the liberation of dust/debris particles that may collide and strike the landing vehicle and surrounding assets obscuring ground observation for safe landing and (2) craters that are formed on the landing surface, posing additional challenges to vehicle stability and surface operations. The Gas-Granular Flow Solver (GGFS) had previ ...

  4. Hedera Hashgraph based Distributed Ledger for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: CTEN GLOBAL STRATEGIES LLC            Topic: T11

    CTEN Global Strategies, LLC, with a wealth of experience in aviation and business, focuses on investing in technology, and then looking for ways to implement that technology in the market place to bring solutions to truly challenging problems.nbsp;nbsp;A clear problem exists when teams of engineers are working to develop components of a complex system, from engine mounts, to an entire electrical g ...

  5. Testing of COTS Systems in Space Radiation Environments

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T6

    For long duration space missions beyond LEO there is a wealth of COTS hardware that could potentially be implemented for non-critical tasks within heavily shielded spacecraft cabins. To employ COTS systems for such missions, we propose to use a simulation/experimental/statistical approach for risk acceptance Radiation Hardness Assurance (RHA) suitable for Cis-Lunar and Cis-Mars missions. The simul ...

  6. Tunable, Reconfigurable Metamaterials Using Liquid Crystal Medium

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: T8

    We propose to take advantage of the tunable, isotropic properties of Liquid Crystals (LCs) to design two different models for a tunable, LC-based metamaterial (LCM) device. This device will be designed with optimal materials and structures to operate within the visible-to-near-IR spectrum with (a) the capability to tune to multiple wavelengths, (b) the ability to respond to and function with diffe ...

  7. Early-Design Aeroacoustics Prediction for Distributed Electric Propulsion Vehicles using FlightStream

    SBC: Research In Flight, LLC            Topic: T15

    Research in Flight and Auburn University are proposing to develop a robust tool and methodology to allow the simulation and modeling of acoustic signatures for Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) air vehicle concepts in the conceptual design phase. These new tools will enable the study of aeroacoustics in much greater detail and with greater fidelity than heretofore deemed practical in the early ...

  8. A New Oxygen Recovery Process to Reduce Waste from Propellant Tanks

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T2

    After landing, the lunar lander liquid oxygen tank may contain as much as 5% residual oxygen that is pressurized with helium. TDA Research proposes to develop an oxygen recovery module which separates the helium from the oxygen so that the remaining high purity oxygen can be readily supplied to life-support equipment and fuel cells. The oxygen recovery module uses an advanced sorbent that has a hi ...

  9. High Capacity Sorbents for Removal of Problematic Contaminants from Processed Wastewater

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T6

    Water recovery from wastewater sources is a key to long duration human exploration missions.nbsp; Regenerative systems are utilized on the International Space Station (ISS) to recycle water from humidity condensate and urine. However, two organic compounds, dimethylsilanediol (DMSD) and dimethyl sulfone (DMSO2), are problematic to water processor assembly (WPA) in the ISS. DMSD is a silicon-contai ...

  10. Autonomous In-space Assembly of Modular Structures

    SBC: ALTIUS SPACE MACHINES, INC.            Topic: T4

    The ESCHER interface is part of a larger concept working to enable swarms of robots to autonomously perform difficult construction tasks while minimizing the cost and complexity of doing so. The interface, designed by Altius for use on Virginia Tech#39;s FASER Lab robots, will leverage existing switchable electropermanent magnetnbsp;(EPM) technology and Altius custom geometries to provide a high h ...
