  1. Probabilistic/Reliability Software Tool for Ceramic Matrix Composite/Environmental Barrier Coating Interface Modeling

    SBC: N&R ENGNERING MGT SUPPORT SVCS            Topic: A1

    One potential way to achieve N+3 goals is the introduction of ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials into turbine engines. The introduction of CMC vanes and/or blades into turbine engines lead to gains in specific fuel consumption (SFC) by allowing higher operating temperatures, reductions in required cooling, and reductions in vehicle weight. Thermal barrier and environmental barrier coatings ( ...

  2. Data Fusion for Anomaly and Degradation Detection

    SBC: CALHOUN ANALYTICS, LLC            Topic: A3

    Sources of sensor errornbsp;leave a UTMnbsp;(UAS Traffic Management)nbsp;system vulnerable.nbsp;Thenbsp;impact of anomalous sensor behavior can be devastating to a UTM system. Degraded sensor accuracy can lead to broken tracksnbsp;ornbsp;split tracks within a UTM system.nbsp;Degraded sensor sensitivity may result in a Mid-Air Collision with an aircraft not detected bynbsp;UTMnbsp;sensors.nbsp;It m ...

  3. Graceful Degradation of TBO Automation

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Implementation of Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) to date has been limited to a subset of the National Airspace Systemrsquo;s (NASrsquo;s) operating environment. The result is that key TBO systems, such as TBFM, are not functional and are turned off at times when unable to support the current NAS operating conditions.nbsp; To fulfill the promise of TBO, systems like TBFM need to be robust to the ...

  4. A Tool for Defining Solar Particle Access to the Magnetosphere (SPAM) for Satellite Anomaly Attribution

    SBC: Space Hazards Applications LLC            Topic: S5

    The goal of the proposed project is ultimately to provide a tool for commercial and government satellite operators and designers that can be used to identify the cause and monitor the real time likelihood of on-orbit satellite anomalies. More specifically, the tool will provide real time situational awareness and information for identifying whether an observed satellite anomaly is likely related t ...

  6. Simple Reliable Retractable Lunar Lander Solar Array

    SBC: Nexolve Holding Company, LLC            Topic: H5

    A new light weight deployable solar power array module is proposed to address the need for a retractable solar array for the initial human lunar lander and future lunar surface applications. The proposed concept leverages recent advancements in thin film solar cell array technology which enables the array to be rolled into a compact cylindrical shape for stowage. The proposed concept will utilize ...

  7. Precision Multifunction Autonomous Connections

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: S2

    Opterus proposes PMACs: Precision Multifunction Autonomous Connections. PMACs are a node-strut connection system designed for hybrid deployable and robotically assembled large precision optical structures. PMACs enable 10 to 30 m diameter primary mirror telescopes to be autonomously assembled on orbit. The system is multifunction and carries data, power, and fluids over the connection and is addit ...

  8. Spinning Scroll Boost Compressor

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: H4

    nbsp;NASA is developing an Exploration Portable Life Support Subsystem (xPLSS) for next-generation Exploration Extra Vehicular Mobility Units (xEMU) planned to replace existing space suits. NASA has identified technology gaps in current xPLSS due to the amine swing-bed system not being design for the partial atmosphere of Mars. To solve this, NASA is requesting the development of a robust ldquo;Bo ...

  10. Space Demonstration of FlexCool Thin Flat Heat Pipes

    SBC: Roccor, LLC            Topic: H8

    In an effort to address current technical gaps in thermal management systems for small spacecraft, Roccor proposes to raise the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of FlexCool, a promising extremely thin (lt; 1 mm), easily bent, high heat flux, heat pipe. The heat pipe proposed for this effort will undergo several environmental tests to qualify its use for flight and a microgravity test. Roccor has b ...
