  2. Anytime Summarization for Remote Robot Operations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: T103

    NASA plans to use intelligent planetary rovers to improve the productivity and safety of human explorers. A key challenge in using robots to support human exploration is orienting remote personnel about robot operations as latency and communication constraints make real-time monitoring impractical. Communication bandwidth will be limited, making it essential to downlink important information early ...

  3. Dynamic Stall Flow Control Through the Use of a Novel Plasma Based Actuator Technology

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: T201

    Lynntech proposes a novel flow control methodology for airfoils undergoing dynamic stall. Dynamic stall refers to an aerodynamic phenomenon that is experienced by airfoils that undergo rapid changes in the flow angle of attack such as rotorcraft based airfoils, flapping wing technologies as well as fixed wing aircrafts undergoing sudden angle of attack changes. Dynamic stall is inherently an unste ...

  6. Ontological Models to Support Planning Operations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: X601

    Automation and autonomy technologies, such as automated planning software, are key elements in realizing the vision for space exploration. However, the major stumbling block to realizing the widespread use of automation tools for operations is capturing and maintaining the domain models -- the object types and subtypes, relationships among them and operational constraints -- needed to support su ...

  7. Non-Thermal Sanitation By Atmospheric Pressure Plasma

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X1402

    ORBITEC's Non-Thermal Sanitation by Atmospheric Pressure Plasma technology sanitizes fresh fruits and vegetables without the use of consumable chemicals and without significantly raising the temperature of the food, so food taste and quality are not affected. Atmospheric pressure plasma is well known to be highly effective in promoting oxidation, enhancing molecular dissociation, and producin ...

  8. MEMS Gyroscope with Interferometric Detection

    SBC: Fine Structure Technology LLC            Topic: O401

    The proposed innovation is a novel MEMS gyroscope that uses micro-interferometric detection to measure the motion of the proof mass. Using an interferometric detection technique enables the measurement of proof mass motion with resolution equal to or better than systems that have CMOS detection electronics fabricated on the MEMS substrate. Furthermore, this detection technique can be applied to ME ...

  9. Stereo Vision for SPHERES-based Navigation and Monitoring

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: O301

    Maintenance operations and scientific research on the International Space Station (ISS) require active monitoring. Currently the majority of monitoring and recording of data is performed by the ISS crew. These tasks, albeit relatively passive, often consume large blocks of a crew member¿¿?s time. In the future, it would be desirable to offload much of this observational work onto experts and tec ...

  10. Perception Engine for Activity Recognition and Logging

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: X1501

    Ten of thousands of hours of video footage already exist and countless more hours will be logged as spacecraft continue to orbit the Earth and explore the solar system. These video logs contain immeasurable amounts of useful data on crew social interactions, crew task performance, and crew-vehicle interaction. Currently, these videos must be searched and indexed by hand. This is a long process ...
