  2. A Computational Tool for Helicopter Rotor Noise Prediction

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: A209

    This SBIR project proposes to develop a computational tool for helicopter rotor noise prediction based on hybrid Cartesian grid/gridless approach. The uniqueness of this approach is to achieve fully automated grid generation without grid overlapping. As a result, the resulting software will enjoy great ease of use with minimum human interference. There is no grid distortion in the majority of the ...

  3. A Unified Gaskinetic Methodology for Full-Knudsen-Range Flows with Chemically Reacting Effects

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A205

    ZONA proposes a Unified Gas Kinetic Scheme (UGKS) to cover the full Knudsen number range from the continuum flow to free molecular flow that can simultaneously exist in the jet nozzle flow of the spacecraft. In the UGKS solver, the BGK model of Boltzmann equation is solved directly with finite volume method based on the Discrete Ordinate Method (DOM). In the UGKS computation the convective terms ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. CMOS Compatible SOI MESFETs for Radiation Hardened DC-to-DC Converters

    SBC: SJT Micropower            Topic: X602

    We have developed a novel metal-semiconductor field-effect-transistor (MESFET) technology suitable for extreme environment electronics. The MESFET technology is fully CMOS-compatible and can be integrated alongside conventional MOSFETs with no changes to the process flow. Unlike the MOSFETs however, the MESFETs do not require a fragile metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) interface and are extremely ro ...

  9. Contaminant Robust System for Oxygen Production from Lunar and Martian Resources

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X301

    Extended duration missions to the Moon and Mars will require the use of In-situ resources to generate propellants and life support consumables. Many of the processes for in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) produce water, along with a variety of acid gases and other water soluble contaminants. Paragon proposes to develop membrane technology to separate water vapor from contaminants in the ISRU sy ...

  10. Embedded Data Acquisition Tools for Rotorcraft Diagnostic Sensors

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: A209

    Ridgetop's innovation addresses the need for improved capabilities for detecting wear in the drive gears inside helicopter gearboxes. Rotorcraft drive trains must withstand enormous pressure while operating continuously in extreme temperature and vibration environments. Captive components, such as planetary and spiral bevel gears, see enormous strain but are not accessible to fixed instrument ...
