  1. A Coupled System for Predicting SPE Fluxes

    SBC: PREDICTIVE SCIENCE INCORPORATED            Topic: T602

    Solar Particle Events (SPEs) represent a major hazard for extravehicular maneuvers by astronauts in Earth orbit, and for eventual manned interplanetary space travel. They can also harm aircraft avionics, communication and navigation. We propose to develop a system to aid forecasters in the prediction of such events, and in the identification/lengthening of "all clear" time periods when there is ...

  2. Advanced Gas Sensing Technology for Space Suits

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: T601

    The gas sensor in the PLSS of the ISS EMU will meet its projected life in 2020, and NASA is planning to replace it. At present, only high TRL devices based on infrared absorption are candidate replacements, because of their proven long-term stability, despite their size and power consumption and failures in the presence of liquid water. No current compact sensor has the tolerance for liquid water ...

  4. Advanced Simulation Framework for Design and Analysis of Space Propulsion Systems

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: T901

    The innovation proposed here is a high-performance, high-fidelity framework in the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code called Loci-STREAM to enable accurate, fast and robust simulations of unsteady multiphase flows such as combustion involving liquid-gas phases in liquid rocket injectors and solid-gas phases in solid rocket motors, and cryogenic cavitation in delivery systems of liquid rocket ...

  5. An End-To-End Microfluidic Platform for Engineering Life Supporting Microbes in Space Exploration Missions

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: T6

    HJ ScienceTechnology (HJST) and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) propose a highly integrated, programmable, and miniaturized microfluidic automation platform capable of running rapid and complex synthetic biology and bioengineering processes for engineering life supporting microbes in space exploration missions. Our approach combines the microfluidic automation technology of HJST with ...

  6. A Reusable, Oxidizer-Cooled, Hybrid Aerospike Rocket Motor for Flight Test

    SBC: ROLLING HILLS RESEARCH CORP            Topic: T202

    The proposed innovation is to use the refrigerant capabilities of nitrous oxide (N2O) to provide the cooling required for reusable operation of an aerospike nozzle in conjunction with an N2O-HTPB (hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene, a synthetic rubber that is used as a binder in solid rocket motors and as a fuel in hybrid rocket motors) hybrid rocket motor. The phase change cooling as liquid N2O i ...

  7. A Self-Regulating Freezable Heat Exchanger for Spacecraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T601

    A spacecraft thermal control system must keep the vehicle, avionics and atmosphere (if crewed) within a defined temperature range. Since water is non-toxic and good for heat transport, it is typically used as the coolant that circulates within the crew cabin boundary. This loop then interfaces with another low freeze point fluid, such as ammonia, for transport of heat to a radiator where the tempe ...

  8. Bantam Rocket Affordable SLV Stage (BRASS)

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: T1

    During the proposed Phase II research and development effort, the project team will complete the integration of previously demonstrated technologies into an upper stage propulsion system for a Small Launch Vehicle (SLV).nbsp; The resulting stage will meet launch vehicle requirements for Mass Fraction and Specific Impulse. The Phase II project will result in the hot-fire qualification of a flight-w ...

  9. Closed-Loop Control of the Thermal Stir Welding Process to Enable Rapid Process / Part Qualification

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: T901

    Thermal Stir Welding (TSW) provides advancement over the more conventional Friction Stir Welding (C-FSW) process because it separates the primary processes variables thereby allowing independent control of metal stirring and forging from the stir zone temperature. However, the feedback for precise control of the stir zone temperature, and hence the process parameters to sustain that temperature wi ...

  10. Efficient cFS-based On-board Lamberts Solution for DSMs

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: T11

    Distributed Spacecraft Missions (DSM) architectures provide unique scientific and programmatic benefits including multipoint in-situ measurements, multi-angle viewpoints, and improved understanding of the connections between separately measured phenomena and their time variations. However, these missions impose significant operational demands on ground tracking resources and mission operators alik ...
