  1. GaN Bulk Growth and Epitaxy from Ca-Ga-N Solutions

    SBC: The IIIAN Company, LLC            Topic: O107

    The innovations proposed here are Ka-band (38 GHz) group III-nitride power FETs and the dislocation density reducing epitaxial growth methods (LPE) needed for their optimal performance and reliability.Ka-band power transistors with>60% Power Added Efficiency (PAE) are not commercially available. The primary limitations to their manufacture are lack of mature process technology at major GaN foun ...

  2. Nanowire Photovoltaic Devices

    SBC: Firefly Technologies            Topic: T301

    Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes developing a space solar cell having record efficiency exceeding 40% (AM0) by the introduction of nanowires within the active region of the current limiting sub-cell. The introduction of these nanoscale features will enable realization of an intermediate band solar cell (IBSC), while simultaneously increasing the effective ...

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

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: T403

    The proposed novel program will develop and demonstrate a new 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 estimating the ...

  4. MonitAR

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: Z501

    We propose to develop MonitAR, an Augmented Reality (AR) system that provides procedure completion guidance to astronauts. MonitAR will replace guidance from mission control during periods of long time delay or when communication with Earth is not possible. Astronauts using AR glasses will receive feedback from MonitAR via visual cues as they progress through procedures on the spacecraft. The visu ...

  5. Fault-Tolerant NDE Data Reduction Framework

    SBC: Emphysic LLC            Topic: H1301

    A distributed fault tolerant nondestructive evaluation (NDE) data reduction framework is proposed in which large NDE datasets are mapped to thousands to millions of parallel, independent processes running on a mobile device, standard computer, or a networked cluster of machines. Each process scans a subset of the data for flaws and as independent entities are unaffected by errors in fellow proces ...

  6. Automated Real-Time Clearance Analyzer (ARCA)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: A303

    The Automated Real-Time Clearance Analyzer (ARCA) addresses the future safety need for Real-Time System-Wide Safety Assurance (RSSA) in aviation and progressively more trusted autonomy as will be explored in NASA's SMART-NAS and SASO within the Airspace Operations and Safety Program (AOSP). ARCA builds on recent advances in probabilistic (Bayesian) network modeling and the rapid expansion of big d ...

  7. 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 i ...

  8. Group III-Nitride LNAs for Microwave Radiometry

    SBC: The IIIAN Company, LLC            Topic: S103

    This phase I proposal addresses the need for microwave and millimeter wave Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs) for remote sensing applications of the earth's atmosphere. In this work, IIIAN proposes using group III-nitride materials, specifically AlGaN/GaN HEMT structures, to fabricate LNAs for microwave radiometers operating from 165 GHz up to 270 GHz. The group III-nitrides have excellent physica ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Acoustic Monitoring for Spaceflight Vehicle Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDICAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: O306

    This SBIR will develop and demonstrate acoustic sensor technology enabling real-time, remotely performed measuring and monitoring of sound pressure levels and noise exposure levels in long-duration space vehicles. The acoustic sensor technology developed will enable a network of continuously monitored, real-time acoustic sensors providing sound pressure level information as a function of frequenc ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Adaptive Linear Parameter Varying Control for Aeroservoelastic Suppression

    SBC: MUSYN Inc            Topic: A107

    Adaptive control offers an opportunity to fulfill present and futureaircraft safety objectives though automatedvehicle recovery while maintaining performanceand stability requirements in the presence of unknown orvarying operating environment.Future aircraft are a natural application of adaptive control. Theseaircraft will be more fuel efficient, have longer operating ranges thoughmore flexible ai ...
