  1. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Dual Mode Green Monopropellant Propulsion System for Interplanetary Missions

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: T2

    Today many spacecraft carry two propulsion options: high thrust required for high acceleration maneuvers such as orbit insertion and rapid response; and low thrust required for station keeping and less critical maneuvers. A new class of non-toxic monopropellants, such as AF-M315E and LMP-103S, perform well in both high and low thrust regimes. Significant investments are maturing both monopropellan ...

  8. Air Vehicle Gust Response analysis for Conceptual Design

    SBC: Research In Flight, LLC            Topic: T15

    Research in Flight (RIF) and Auburn University are offering the development of an advanced, robust tool and methodology that allows the simulation and modeling of gust and wake vortex encounters for Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) enabled Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vehicle concepts. DEP enabled UAM concepts offer the potential for large performance improvements by exploiting favorable synergie ...

  9. Advanced Flow Control System for In-Space Electric Propulsion

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: T2

    CU Aerospace (CUA) and the University of Michigan (UM) propose the development of the Cycle Automated Mass Flow (CAMFlow) system for reliable and well-regulated flow control. CAMFlow uses an innovative control scheme that enables stable operation using only Boolean valve states, even for the low flow rates necessary for sub-kilowatt Hall effect thrusters. This methodology removes system complexity ...

  10. Testing of COTS Systems in Space

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T6

    For long duration space missions beyond LEO, the complexity of the missions and the latency of communications with Earth will require HPC systems that would be prohibitively expensive if qualified under traditional guidelines for high reliability space systems. There is a wealth COTS hardware that could potentially be used for HPC systems for non-critical tasks within heavily shielded spacecraft c ...
