  1. Vortex Control for Low-Noise DEP Urban Aircraft

    SBC: Surfplasma, Inc.            Topic: T15

    Suppression of noise from aircraft is a vital NASA goal, especially important for the vision of Urban Air Mobility. Small urban aircraft may utilize Distributed Electric Propulsion along with advanced structural and electric motor/storage technologies to achieve the necessary flight capability. However, these aircraft utilize propellers or fans to achieve the necessary thrust, with attendant commu ...

  2. Testing of COTS Systems in Space

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T6

    For long duration space missions beyond LEO, the complexity of the missions and the latency of communications with Earth will require HPC systems that would be prohibitively expensive if qualified under traditional guidelines for high reliability space systems. There is a wealth COTS hardware that could potentially be used for HPC systems for non-critical tasks within heavily shielded spacecraft c ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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) ...

  5. Quantification of Uncertainties in Integrated Spacecraft System Models

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T501

    The proposed effort is to investigate a novel uncertainty quantification (UQ) approach based on non-intrusive polynomial chaos (NIPC) for computationally efficient and accurate quantification of uncertainties in spacecraft system models within a multidisciplinary analysis and optimization (MAO) framework. The UQ approach will include the modeling of both inherent (probabilistic) and epistemic unc ...

  6. QMU in Integrated Spacecraft System Models

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: T5

    ACTA and Sandia National Laboratories propose to quantify and propagate substructure modeling uncertainty for reduced-order substructure models to higher levels of system assembly, thereby enabling predictive simulations of engineering designs with quantified margins and uncertainties for model-based flight qualification of complete spacecraft. A critical part of this process is the accurate mode ...

  7. Power Generating Coverings and Casings

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T301

    Advances in structured heterogeneity together with nanomaterials tailoring has made it possible to create thermoelectrics using high temperature, polymer composites. While such thermoelectrics do not have the capability to approach the efficiency of top performing ceramic modules such as BiTe, they do provide two unique aspects of use in energy scavenging: the ability to cover large areas easily, ...

  8. Power Balance Solver Enhanced by an Experimental Absorption Cross-Section Database

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: T5

    We propose the development of a user-friendly software tool for estimating the electric field distributions within spacecraft enclosures based on the Power Balance (PwB) method and enhanced by a database of experimentally determined Absorption Cross-Sections (ACS) of common equipment, components and cables.The software will be built around an already developed PwB solver that determines the statis ...

  9. POC Blood Coagulopathy Monitor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHA19A001

    Traumatic injuries account for 30% of all life years lost in the US and is the leading cause of death for people under 46 years of age. Uncontrolled bleeding or hemorrhage constitute 30-40% of trauma related deaths and are considered to be a major cause o

  10. 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 ...
