  1. A GIS Software Toolkit for Converting NASA HDF-EOS Data Products to GIS and Other Geospatial Formats

    SBC: Aniuk Consulting, LLC            Topic: S603

    Aniuk Consulting, LLC, proposes to create a GIS software toolkit for easily converting NASA HDF-EOS data into formats that can be readily used within a Geographic Information System (GIS) or other geospatial software programs. The Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) is a widely used scientific data format and serves as the standard format for NASA EOS products. The HDF-EOS toolbar will allow a user t ...

  2. Reconfigurable Ultra-Low Power Miniaturized EVA Radio

    SBC: Teranovi Technologies            Topic: N/A

    EVA radio is an important integral part of lunar missions and beyond. To minimize power consumption and mass of an EVA radio, innovative solutions are needed for the design of various modules ranging from RF front end to networking protocols. In this protocol, a comprehensive design architecture that can achieve ultra-low power miniaturized EVA radio is proposed. Under this architecture, new MEMS- ...

  4. Micro Pulsed Inductive Thruster with Solid Fuel Option (uPIT_SF)

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S201

    The Micro Pulsed Inductive Thruster with Solid Fuel Option (µPIT_SF) is a high-precision impulse bit electromagnetic plasma micro-thruster. The µPIT prototype is a small (< 230 g) thruster that produces and accelerates plasma. In the solid fuel mode, µPIT_SF is able to substantially extend the performance of standard PPT systems by ionization and heating of the high density neutral gas produce ...
