  1. ANSIBLE: A Network of Social Interactions for Bilateral Life Enhancement

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: H1203

    Studies in ground-based analogs of Isolated and Confined Environments (ICE) have identified sensory monotony and social isolation as threats to crew psychological well-being. Further, the lack of real-time communications in future missions will impact crew interactions with their support systems, i.e. family, friends, and colleagues, are critical. ANSIBLE (A Network of Social Interactions for Bi ...

  2. Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing for Multifunctional Structural Materials with Embedded Capabilities

    SBC: SHERIDAN SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: H503

    This Phase II development program will utilize a novel new 3D printing process to produce multifunction aluminum parts with integrated health monitoring sensors. In particular, Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing will be used to embed optical fiber strain sensors anywhere in a metal part that can subsequently be used for structural health monitoring (SHM). Success in this program enables real time s ...

  4. Bifunctional Membrane for High Energy, Long Shelf Life Li-S Batteries

    SBC: Navitas Advanced Solutions Group, LLC            Topic: Z1

    The adoption of high energy lithium sulfur batteries hinges on significant improvements in charge/recharge cycle life.  Cycle life is limited by migration of dissolved polysulfide species which creates an electrochemical short circuit.  In this NASA SBIR, Navitas Systems proposes to develop an atomically precise and bifunctional membrane separator for lithium sulfur batteries that impede ...

  5. RIDES: Raman Icing Detection System

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: A101

    Inflight icing of engines and airframe presents a significant hazard to air transport, especially at lower flight elevations during take-off or on approach. Ice accretions on the wings affect the smooth flow required for proper lift. A thin layer of coarse ice can reduce the lift by 30 percent and increase drag by up to 40 percent. In addition, accretions can also reduce the air intake in engine ...

  6. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. Constraint-Checking Editor for Procedure Tracking (ConCEPT)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: H601

    Constructing, maintaining, and adapting operational procedures for manned space operations is a complex task, requiring the procedure author to satisfy constraints resulting from the system configuration, current state, and a set of procedural constraints imposing additional restrictions on these procedures. For operations on NASA's International Space Station (ISS), these procedural constraints m ...

  8. Automated Real-Time Clearance Analyzer (ARCA)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: A303

    The Automated Real-Time Clearance Analyzer (ARCA) automates safety assessment of ATC decisions and can operate orders of magnitude faster (and on a wider range of information) than a human. ARCA's core algorithms mirror human safety assessments so that decision analyses are comprehendible on inspection and can be calibrated with experience and observation. Furthermore, ARCA archives operational da ...

    SBIR Phase II 2017 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Integrated Multi-Mode Automation for Trajectory Based Operations

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: A301

    Air Traffic Management's lack of support for aircraft with different capabilities is a long standing and persistent issue that can limit the ability of the National Airspace System (NAS) to take full advantage of advanced aircraft capabilities. To fully utilize the variety of Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) concepts planned for the NAS, some of which utilize advanced aircraft capabilities for im ...

  10. Satellite Swarm Localization and Control via Random Finite Set Statistics

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: T403

    The proposed novel program will develop and demonstrate an innovative approach to perform real-time relative vehicle localization within a swarm formation with application to communication-less coordination. These objectives are achieved by using Random Finite Sets statistics theory to solve the multiple object tracking problem. The swarm formation localization problem can be formulated as estimat ...
