  1. Dynamically Leveraged Automated (N) Multibody Trajectory Optimization

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: H9

    CU Aerospace (CUA) proposes further development of the Dynamically Leveraged Automated (N) Multibody Trajectory Optimization (DyLAN) tool, which solves impulsive and low-thrust global optimization problems in multibody regimes, and can do so in an automated fashion. NASA and commercial entities are in need of advanced methods that allow for rapid analysis of complex optimal trajectory problems, so ...

  2. Space Durability Testing via MISSE-FF of CORIN XLS Polyimide with Increased Flexibility and Tear Resistance

    SBC: Nexolve Holding Company, LLC            Topic: Z4

    A new thin-film polymer material is proposed that would improve orbit lifetimenbsp;and packaging efficiency for use in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Micro-Meteoroid and Orbital Debris (MMOD) prone applications.nbsp; Thin-film polymers are used in many spacecraft applications including multi-layer insulation, sunshields for thermal control, deployable structures, solar sails, as well as flexible solar ...

  3. Advancing Hyperspectral Imaging through IntegratedCompressive Sensing / Inpainting via Machine Learning

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: S5

    Hyperspectral datasets are massive. This size makes them difficult to acquire, store, transmit, analyze and use. Hyperspectral imagers (HSI) are also costly and complex, taking significant time or portions of a focal plane to acquire each spectral band. In addition, orbital HSIs are susceptible to radiation damage and inaccessible for repairs, making any damage long-lasting.nbsp;In this effort, we ...

  4. Using MISSE-FF to Determine the Effect of the Space Environment on Advanced Thermal Protection Coatings

    SBC: Geoplasma, LLC            Topic: Z4

    Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) are needed to protect spacecraft and crew from high temperature propellant gases, heating from solar radiation, and heating from friction with planetary atmospheres.nbsp; For example, ceramic based Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBC) are being applied to rocket engine components such as combustion chambers, injector face plates, and nozzle extensions to allow higher tem ...

  5. Packaging and Manufacturing Processes to Enable Production of Very Large Solar Sails for Next Generation Missions

    SBC: Nexolve Holding Company, LLC            Topic: Z10

    The experience of building the NEA Scout solar Sail resulted in the realization that new manufacturing technology would be required to build solar sails significantly larger than NEA Scout. During Phase I, NeXolve successfully developed and demonstrated fab and fold processes and scalable-modular pathfinder mechanisms that can be fully developed to support fabrication and packaging of larger solar ...

  6. An Intelligent Framework to Develop Adaptive Parametric Reduced Order Model Database for Aerostructural Control

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A1

    The goal of the project is to develop an intelligent framework to construct adaptive parametric reduced order model (PROM) database for aeroservoelastic (ASE) analysis and aerostructural control. In Phase 1, the framework for both equation-based and data-driven PROMs was developed and feasibility to introduce ldquo;engineering intelligencerdquo; to AE/ASE ROMs was successfully established. Careful ...

  7. SPACE-BASED SOLAR WATER HEATER

    SBC: Remtech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MANNED SPACECRAFT ON LONG MISSIONS OR PERMANENTLY IN ORBIT (E.G. SPACE STATION) WILL REQUIRE HOT WATER FOR HOUSEKEEPINGCHORES SUCH AS CLOTHES AND DISH WASHING AND BATHING. THE ECLS SYSTEM WILL ALSO REQUIRE SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF HOT WATER. IF THIS WATER IS ELECTRICALLY HEATED, MANY ADDITIONAL SQUARE FEET OF THE PHOTOVOLTAIC (PV) ARRAY WILL BE NEEDED. AN ATTRACTIVE ALTERNATIVE IS TO MOUNT A SOLAR C ...

  8. Critical Program Information (CPI) Identification and Assessment Tool

    SBC: Management Analysis Network, LLC, The            Topic: SCO183002

    Protecting the effectiveness of US advanced weapon systems and the technology they rely on is a national priority. Unfortunately, individuals tasked with this mission are met with disjointed guidance, no training, and competing processes to consider. It is no wonder adversaries continue to exploit these weaknesses in the Department of Defense (DOD); stealing our Critical Program Information (CPI) ...

  9. AERODYNAMIC HEATING UPGRADE OF THE PARABOLIZED NAVIER-STOKES(PNS) CODE

    SBC: Remtech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WILL ENHANCE THE CAPABILITY OF THE AIR FORCE PARABOLIZED NAVIER STOKES CODE (AFWAL PNS CODE) TO PREDICT SKIN FRICTION AND HEAT TRANSFER TO HIGH SPEED FLIGHT VEHICLES. THE CURRENT PREDICTION TECHNIQUES REQUIRE EXTREMELY ACCURATE CALCULATIONS OF VELOCITY AND TEMPERATURE IN THE VICINITY OF THE WALL. THE EFFORT HERE WILL REPLACE THIS PROCEDURE BY USING INTEGRAL MOMENTUM AND ENERGY EQUATION ...
