  1. Compact Fluidic Actuator Arrays For Flow Control

    SBC: ADVANCED FLUIDICS, LLC            Topic: A205

    The overall objective of the proposed research is to design, develop and demonstrate fluidic actuator arrays for aerodynamic separation control and drag reduction. These actuators are based on a compact design of low mass-flow fluidic oscillators that produce high frequency (1-5 kHz) oscillating or pulsing jets. Our preliminary experiments on separation control over trailing edge flaps, cavity to ...

  2. Using a Bore Sight Camera as an AR&D Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: X201

    Orion requires a rendezvous and docking sensor to provide relative navigation information during proximity operations and docking. In order to dock, the sensor must provide full six degree of freedom (6 DOF) relative position and relative attitude information at a rate sufficient for the rendezvous spacecraft guidance system to robustly control the docking maneuver. Orion faces critical weight iss ...

  3. Passive Wireless SAW Humidity Sensors

    SBC: SENSANNA INCORPORATED            Topic: T601

    This proposal describes the preliminary development of passive wireless surface acoustic wave (SAW) based humidity sensors for NASA application to distributed humidity monitoring systems. SAW devices are a platform technology for passive wireless sensing of numerous possible measurands. SAW devices have been demonstrated as passive wireless temperature sensors in NASA contracts NNK04OA28C and NN ...

  4. Efficient Techniques for Formal Verification of PowerPC 750 Executables

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We will develop an efficient tool for formal verification of PowerPC 750 executables. The PowerPC 750 architecture is used in the radiation-hardened RAD750 flight-control computers that are utilized in many space missions. The resulting tool will be capable of formally checking: 1) the equivalence of two instruction sequences; and 2) properties of a given instruction sequence. The tool will automa ...

  5. Active Vibration Isolation System for Mobile Launch Platform Ground Support Equipment

    SBC: Balcones Technologies LLC            Topic: T602

    Balcones Technologies, proposes to adapt actively controlled suspension technology developed for high performance off-road vehicles to address NASA's requirement for Active Vibration Control for Ground Support Equipment (GSE). This innovative approach to meeting NASA needs exploits approximately $23M of highly successful R&D since 1993 at the University of Texas Center for Electromechanics (CEM) ...

  6. Avionics for Scaled Remotely Operated Vehicles

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: A109

    The use of UAVs has increased exponentially since 1995, and this growth is expected to continue. Many of these applications require extensive Research and Development; however, the need to fund development of the UAV often competes with funding intended for the end-user application. Therefore, off the shelf, low cost, easily configurable integrated avionics systems will significantly reduce the bu ...

  7. UltraSail Solar Sail Flight Experiment

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: S304

    CU Aerospace and its University of Illinois teammate propose the design, sub-component fabrication and preliminary test of an UltraSail "Cubesat" 20 m2 solar sail spacecraft leading to a flight test in low Earth orbit. The complete flight test program consists of: preliminary design and sub-component tests; fabrication and assembly of a University of Illinois Cubesat spacecraft bus adapted to sol ...

  8. H/OZ: PFD and Collaborative Flight Control System

    SBC: Emerald Sky Technologies, LLC            Topic: A102

    With aircraft automation increasingly able to control flight autonomously, situational awareness and engagement of the crew can suffer. To improve aviation safety further we need new paradigms to balance between exploiting increasingly powerful technologies and retaining and promoting aeronautical decision making (ADM) by the crew. This proposal explores integrating H-mode, a flight control syste ...

  9. Ground Enterprise Management System


    Spacecraft ground systems are on the cusp of achieving "plug-and-play" capability, i.e., they are approaching the state in which the various components can be quickly integrated with near-automatic interoperability. When properly architected, such systems offer advantages over their traditional counterparts, such as improved upgradeability and extensibility. They can also be more easily automat ...

  10. High Efficiency, High Mass Specific Power Two-Terminal Solar Cells

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: S303

    Future NASA missions will require significant improvements in photovoltaic energy conversion efficiency (>30%) and mass specific power (>600 W/kg), and improved radiation tolerance. We propose to develop a high efficiency monolithic three-junction, two-terminal solar cell using lattice matched HgCdZnTe and/or HgCdMgTe alloys, which will offer great advantages in terms of weight and interconnect si ...
