  1. Metagrating Beam Shaping Optics

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: T8

    Metamaterial optics provide dramatic reductions in size and weight compared with traditional refractive optics. Nanohmics, Inc., and Andrea Alugrave;rsquo;s group at the City University of New York propose to develop ultrathin, light-weight, high-transmittance optics based on microfabricated gradient metagratings. A metagrating is an array of polarizable metamaterial particles with a period compar ...

  2. Integrated Multi-Mode Photonic Crystal Spectrometer with On-Chip Photodetection

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: T8

    As the desire to look deeper in space and image multiple objects simultaneously continues to grow, the need for larger telescopes is raised. With this increase in aperture size, the instrumentation size is increased proportionally and the cost of this instrumentation is proportionally squared. With advances in photonic technologies this can be accomplished on a fully integrated chip. Integrated ph ...

  3. Blockchain for Model Based System Engineering

    SBC: Tietronix Software, Inc.            Topic: T11

    When NASA constructs the Moon to Mars Gateway, teams of engineers from different NASA centers, different contractors and international partners will work together. System engineering spans across different countries and its contractors. There is a need to store the MBSE models securely in a distributive manner while enabling a single, real-time source of truth for the system models to eliminate an ...

  4. Generative Adversarial Networks for Real-Time Realistic Physics Simulations

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: Z11

    NASA is seeking to develop real-time realistic nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and structural health monitoring (SHM) physics-based simulations and automated data reduction/analysis methods for large datasets. We propose the combination of a neural network approach with a traditional finite element simulation to generate realistic thermal-based NDE methods for precise determination of structural d ...

  5. Radiation-Hardened Latch-Up Monitor IC

    SBC: Silicon Space Technology Corporation            Topic: Z8

    Designers of electronic circuits that are used in radiation environments are concerned about ICs latching-up due to particle strikes. If a CMOS Integrated Circuit (IC) latches-up, it can often be recovered if it is reset quickly. To protect space electronic circuits from latch-up problems, a radiation-hardened Latch-up Monitor IC is required to determine when any IC on the Printed Circuit Board (P ...

  6. Energy Dense Advanced Li Ion Batteries for Lunar Surface Missions

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: Z1

    The near-term goal for NASArsquo;s Moon to Mars campaign is the delivery of payloads to the Moon for scientific study and the advancement of technology capabilities to support sustained long-term lunar surface operations. nbsp;Lightweight, reliable and energy dense power generation and energy storage systems are key enabling technologies to support such long duration lunar mission.nbsp; Rechargeab ...

  7. Low power 7.2 Terabit Transmitter for Exascale Computing

    SBC: Photon Sciences, Incorporated            Topic: S5

    Exascale computing for Large-Scale Numerical Simulation requires a new technology for optical communication. VCSEL based transmitters run out of bandwidth at 56 Gbps PAM4, and the latency of PAM4 is incompatible with exascale computing. Other available technologies are excessively expensive, have high power consumption, are far from proven or they require temperature control.nbsp;Ournbsp;proposed ...

  8. Intelligent Two-Phase Flow Phenomena Sensor for Enhanced Thermal Management Control

    SBC: Stratos Perception, LLC            Topic: Z2

    Two-phase flow fluids can offer more power to forced-convective heat transport, because such fluids utilize phase change to dramatically increase (or decrease) heat transport capabilities over single-phase flow convection.nbsp;nbsp;Unfortunately, two-phase flow systems are inherently unstable and can accordingly introduce significant management challenges in the reduced and variable acceleration f ...

  9. Fluoride Ion Solid State Battery for Terrestrial Venus Applications

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: S3

    Space energy storage systems are required to enable/enhance the capabilities of future planetary science missions. Venus aerial and surface missions pose challenges for energy storage systems where the temperature and pressure can be up to 460 Celsius and 92 bars, respectively. Therefore, high temperature batteries are significantly needed for future long duration Venus missions. Lynntech proposes ...

  10. Model-Based Engineering Trade EvaluationTool Suite

    SBC: Tietronix Software, Inc.            Topic: S5

    As Space systems become more complex and missionsrsquo; objectives become more challenging, with combination of advanced instrumentation, robotic systems and manned spacecraft, there is a clear need to rely on effective tools for performing trade evaluations in a cost-effective way. Currently there are model-based approaches used to develop system design. There is not a process for how to use mode ...
