  1. Provably Convergent Game-Theoretic Coordination for Space Vehicle Swarms

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: T4

    This program will develop a communication-less solution to decentralized control and task coordination for multi-agent systems (MAS). Reducing the operational burden of MAS swarms on human operators will greatly improve the capability of spacecraft constellations and distant planetary explorations. The proposed solution would guide the MAS towards a cost minimized set of actions by performing grad ...

  2. Graceful Degradation of TBO Automation

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Implementation of Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) to date has been limited to a subset of the National Airspace Systemrsquo;s (NASrsquo;s) operating environment. The result is that key TBO systems, such as TBFM, are not functional and are turned off at times when unable to support the current NAS operating conditions.nbsp; To fulfill the promise of TBO, systems like TBFM need to be robust to the ...

  3. Performance Based Autonomous Precision Approach and Landing System

    SBC: Bolder Flight Systems Inc.            Topic: A3

    Novel aircraft concepts enable a future Air Transportation System (ATS) with reduced emissions, reduced noise, improved mobility, and radically new modes of transportation, such as urban air taxis, autonomous deliveries of goods, and improved weather and ground traffic monitoring. The future ATS will need to support an incredibly diverse set of vehicles operating from urban vertiports in addition ...

  4. High Temperature, Radiation-Hard, Metal-Oxide Based Power Electronics

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: S4

    Power electronics is a core enabling technology for virtually all electronic systems. Power density, conversion efficiency, and reliability of power converters represent the three most critical requirements for aerospace, defense and many commercial applications alike. High temperature and radiation tolerant, wide bandgap materials, such as GaN and SiC, have offered a number of technological break ...

  5. Titan Aerial Research Vehicle for Scientific Exploration

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: S3

    The proposed mono-wing planetary aerial vehicle are small unmanned aircraft with biological inspiration derived from a samara (winged seed). The Titan Aerial Research Vehicle (TARV) mimics the natural aerodynamics of the samara planform and its auto-rotating shape. The TARV will be an exploratory vehicle capable of controlled flight, hover, and repeated takeoff and landing maneuvers on Titan for s ...

  6. Real Time Flight Envelope Estimation and Feedback for UAS Verification, Validation, and Certification

    SBC: Bolder Flight Systems Inc.            Topic: A2

    Recent advances in computing enable Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to conduct high quality missions with the implicit promise of lower cost and effort than manned aircraft. However, a lack of methods, architectures, and tools to enable verification, validation, and certification of UAS flight control systems is a major technological barrier to widespread adoption of UAS in civil aviation and NASA ...

  7. WiHub: Wearable Intelligent Communication Hub

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: HSB0151005

    The huge growth in mobile industry including smartphones and tablets, wearable devices, and the internet of things, caused an explosion in the number of sensor technologies and sensory data. This growth was accompanied by huge leaps in wireless communication technologies in term of speed and geographical coverage. When a highly-trained first responder arrives at an incident scene, an array of comm ...

  8. Marshal: Maintaining Evolving Models

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: H601

    SIFT proposes to design and develop the Marshal system, a mixed-initiative tool for maintaining task models over the course of evolving missions. SIFT will demonstrate Marshal by developing it as a plugin for the TRACLabs PRIDE procedure authoring system. A Marshal-enabled PRIDE will learn and maintain task models so that it can improve the consistency and correctness of PRL-based procedures. Ma ...

  9. ATHENA- Appraisal of Task Health and Effort through Non-Intrusive Assessments

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: H1202

    Based on a series of prior and ongoing research projects funded by NASA and the US Air Force (US AF), we have demonstrated viable methods to achieve accurate workload measures (70-100% accuracy) for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) work domain using linguistics and keystroke dynamics. We believe these methods can be reconfigured to use for spaceflight operations. These completely unobtrusive mea ...

  10. Non Invasive Instrumentation For Single Event Effects (NIISEE)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: S309

    On this Phase 1 project, Adventium will identify and address key hurdles to achieve Radiation Hardening by Software (RHS) for Single Event Effects (SEEs) for modern COTS processors. The primary benefit this approach will be to reduce the time and cost to deploy new space-based capabilities by leveraging power efficient, pervasive mobile computing processors. These processors, however, are not expl ...
