  1. Novel schemes for highly reliable aerospace electromechanical primary actuation systems

    SBC: LCDRIVES CORP.            Topic: SB132005

    There is a need to achieve 10^-9 reliability for actuators for critical aerospace applications and this precludes single point failure for all but the simplest and most reliable electrical and mechanical components. LC Drives proposes a method of constructing a high reliability linear actuator for critical aerospace applications that is designed such that jams caused by conventional electrical a ...

  4. Integrated System Health Management for Flexible Exploration

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X603

    Long-duration robotic and manned space missions have a number of unique requirements for mission success. These include ultra-high reliability, safety, sustainability and affordability of launch vehicles and spacecraft. These requirements, in turn, are allocated among critical subsystems, such as engines, propellants, structures, software systems, thermal protection, power, avionics, life support, ...

  5. Software Tools for Fault Management Technologies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S605

    Fault Management (FM) is a key requirement for safety, efficient onboard and ground operations, maintenance, and repair. QSI's TEAMS Software suite is a leading facilitator diagnostic and FM modeling, and performing various FM-related functions. Through this effort, QSI proposes to introduce capabilities to TEAMS that would significantly Reduce diagnostic model development cost and time, Enha ...

  6. Innovative High Temperature Heat Pipes for Spacecraft Nuclear Fission Systems

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X803

    NASA Glenn is examining small fission reactors for future space transportation and surface power applications. The reactors would have an 8 to 15 year design life and should be available for a 2020 launch to support future NASA science missions. Both 1 kWe thermoelectric and 3 kWe Stirling systems have been examined. Heat pipes are being examined to transfer the thermal energy from the reactor ...

  7. Improved Dried Biological Specimen Materials, Recovery and Processing for Diagnostics

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: SB112005

    The dried blood spot (DBS) method is an alternative to venipuncture. The available data indicates that the DBS method is both precise and accurate for a diverse range of compounds. We discovered that proprietary additives vastly improve extraction of proteins in DBS using electrospray. Our unexpected results appear to dramatically increase analyte recovery concentration while reducing DBS prep, an ...

  8. Space Electronics Operating at High Temperatures and Radiation Levels

    SBC: QorTek, Inc.            Topic: S305

    The objective is to produce high efficiency DC/DC power modules in a small low profile package that can tolerate extreme environment conditions. The primary effort of the Phase II program is to address the need for very high performance power electronics that meet a combination of high radiation tolerance, high thermal tolerance and extremely low EMI susceptibility/radiation. The power modules in ...

  9. Calculation of Effective Material Strengths for 3D Woven Hybrid Preforms and Composites

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: H701

    Current NASA programs, such as Adaptable, Deployable Entry and Placement Technology (ADEPT) and Woven Thermal Protection Systems (WTPS) are looking to fill a gap in ablative TPS for future missions to Venus and Saturn, human missions beyond Lunar, and Mars Sample Return Missions. Both of these programs rely on the use of 3D woven carbon fiber preforms. Therefore, there is a need to be able to pr ...

  10. Test Methods for the Determination of Anisotropic Compliances in 3D Woven Preforms for Ablative TPS

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: H701

    Based on the recent success of the Mars Exploration Program and the Mars Science Laboratory mission, NASA has a desire to expand on the technology developed under each effort in order to increase future mission capabilities, namely an increase in payload capacity for entry to Mars, Venus and other Outer-Planets. Such a goal requires an innovative solution to the vehicle's entry, decent and la ...
