  1. A Balloon-Borne Open-Path Cavity Ringdown Spectrometer for Measuring Atmospheric Extinction and Validating Remote Sensing Products

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: S1

    Aerosol extinction measurements are crucial to understanding the effects of atmospheric particles on ozone depletion (stratosphere), radiation (stratosphere and troposphere), visibility (troposphere) and public health (boundary layer).nbsp; Despite the acute need, no existing instrument can measure direct, in situ aerosol extinction profiles from the ground to the mid-stratosphere.nbsp; Satellite- ...

  2. Accelerated Scientific InSAR Processing

    SBC: NEVA RIDGE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S603

    Neva Ridge Technologies proposes to develop a suite of software tools for the analysis of SAR and InSAR data, focused on having a robust and adopted capability well in place for scientists by the era of the NASA DESDynI spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) mission. The software will take advantage of the latest technologies associated with graphics processor units (GPUs) to drastically accel ...

  3. Accelerating Communication-Intensive Applications via Novel Data Compression Techniques

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: S501

    Processor speed has traditionally grown at a rate faster than that ofcommunication speed in computer and supercomputer networks, and it isexpected that this trend will continue even stronger, as we move into theexascale age in the upcoming decade. This has resulted in what is known asthe "communication gap" for communication-bound HPC applications: theircommunication-to-computation time-ratio is s ...

  4. A Comet Surface Sample Return System

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S107

    The proposed Phase I investigation will focus on the development of spacecraft systems required to obtain a sample from the nucleus of a comet, hermetically seal the sample within a capsule, and return the sealed sample to an orbiting spacecraft which can return the sample to Earth. A preliminary systems level concept has been developed. This concept will be refined during the proposed Phase I inv ...

  5. A Compact Safe Cold-Start (CS2) System for Scramjets using Dilute Triethylaluminum Fuel Mixtures

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: A202

    This proposal addresses the cold-start requirements of scramjet engines by developing a safe, energy-dense, and low volume hydrocarbon fuel conditioning system based on the hydrolysis reaction of water with triethylaluminum (TEA). TEA is an organometallic liquid that reacts exothermically with water and burns readily in air when not diluted in hydrocarbon mixtures. We propose to use the hydrolys ...

  6. Adaptive Drainage Slots for Acoustic Noise Attenuation

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A203

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG), proposes to demonstrate feasibility in the reduction of noise attributed to drainage slots in jet engine acoustic liners. This will be accomplished through the development of design rules for optimum slot design and the implementation of adaptive material technologies. CRG proposes to bring this technology to a technology readiness level (TRL) 2 after the Ph ...

  8. Additive Manufacture of Refractory Metal Propulsion Components

    SBC: Geoplasma, LLC            Topic: T9

    Niobium alloy (C-103) reaction control system (RCS) chambers have been used on numerous NASA programs. However at elevated temperatures, the strength of C-103 decreases significantly. Higher strength niobium alloys have been developed, but these alloys lack the formability of C-103. Recently, Additive Manufacture (AM) of niobium and C-103 has been demonstrated using powder bed electron beam me ...

  9. Additive Manufacturing of Silicon Carbide Mirrors

    SBC: OPTIPRO SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: S2

    Due to its high elastic modulus, low density, low thermal expansion, and high thermal conductivity, silicon carbide is an ideal material for many demanding space applications. Examples include: lightweight freeform mirrors and structural components for ground/space-based imaging systems. The ability to print near-net shapes in silicon carbide will increase design freedom and reduce production cost ...
