  2. Ultra-Stable ALLVAR Alloy Strut Development for Space Telescopes

    SBC: Thermal Expansion Solutions, Inc.            Topic: S2

    This NASA SBIR Phase II proposal is in response to the need for Ultra-Stable Telescope Structures and is designed to evaluate ALLVAR Alloys for their potential as metering and support structures for optics that are critical to NASArsquo;s future missions. Telescopes used for astrophysics, exoplanet, and planetary studies require picometer stability over several minutes to hours. Building large sup ...

  3. Electronic Procedure Verification and Workflow Management System

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A2

    Procedures play a large role in successfully testing and operating complex equipment. They provide step-by-step instructions for system check-out, experimental set-up, test plans, and responding to off-nominal situations. They also provide an electronic record of all test activities. As NASAnbsp; moves away from traditional paper procedures to more flexible electronic procedures, there is an oppor ...

  4. ADAMANT: Adaptive Manipulation for Tasks

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: Z5

    Robots will play an important role in NASA#39;s upcoming missions to the Moon and beyond.nbsp; They will need to manipulate their environment in complex and useful ways - carrying objects, using tools, and assisting crew.nbsp; NASArsquo;s humanoid robots have highly dexterous end-effectors, but developing software to fully utilize such hands remains a challenging task.nbsp; Grasping strategies are ...

  5. Deep Learning Enhanced Fidelity InSAR Toolkit (DEFIT)

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: S5

    Lynntech and Southern Methodist University (SMU) Earth Sciences propose to leverage deep learning plus data resources to develop a tool useful for enhancing Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) interferograms. InSAR interferogram stacks with available ground truth of the phase due to ground deformation will be used to train a generative model that can be applied to other datasets. Auto ...

  6. Advanced Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Frequency selective surfaces (FSSs) are periodic arrays of conductive elements/patches that cause a particular reflection response when illuminated with high frequency electromagnetic energy. nbsp;These arrays arenbsp;used for high frequency filters and in antenna applications.nbsp; We propose to use FSSs as multi-functional sensors. nbsp;FSS sensors are unpowered, low-profile (thin), wireless and ...

  7. Decentralized, Public, and Mobile-Based Sidewalk Inventory Tool

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 142FH1

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) is pleased to propose the further design and development of MySidewalk mobile application facilitating the crowd-sourced collection of sidewalk inventory and condition data. The MySidewalk application utilizes advances in social networks and data mining to provide integrated sidewalk datasets. Phase I and II research was facilitated by inputs from City of Colle ...

  8. Hypervelocity Impact Detection, Location, and Assessment for Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: Invocon, Inc.            Topic: Z11

    A system is proposed that can track the AE and RF energy dispersion that is created when a vehicle is impacted by a projectile at hyper velocity. This same device can measure the time of arrival of the wave front at transducers placed throughout the vehicle. Using the known velocity of the energy in the skin of the vehicle, the system can calculate the exact point of impact. Furthermore, Phase I t ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
