  1. Fabrication of T-SOFC via Freeze Cast Methods for Space and Portable Applications

    SBC: Yanhai Power LLC            Topic: H801

    As NASA space missions become longer in duration the need for high efficiency power generator sets that can operate on NASA logistical fuel become critical. Historically NASA has used fuel cells as part of the energy solution. Space bound energy and power systems require rapid start and stop cycle times as well as high power densities. The high operational efficiency, coupled with the use of logi ...

  2. A Green, Safe, Multi-Pulse Solid Motor (MPM) for CubeSats

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Today's CubeSats lack storable, green, safe propulsion options for complex science missions that may involve large Delta-V changes, proximity operations, and attitude control systems (ACS) for pointing, spin-up, and spin-down. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing propulsion for CubeSats and will leverage existing research efforts into a new system for NASA. A key technology identifi ...

  3. Plume Diagnostics for Combustion Stability

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T901

    Sierra Engineering Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a non-intrusive plume instrument capable of detecting and diagnosing combustion instability. This Stability Diagnostic System (SDS) will be designed, assembled, and tested during this effort. The SDS will include a high-speed video camera and multiple photodiode detectors for observing the plume. It will also include a software pa ...

  4. Triaxial Swirler Liquid Injector Development

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: X601

    Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that the subject triaxial liquid propellant swirl injector has the potential to meet many of NASA's Earth-to-Orbit (ETO) propulsion systems goals. The triaxial swirl injector is ideally suited to a wide range of liquid oxidizers and fuels, including hydrogen and a wide range of hydrocarbons. It holds the potential of excellent high-frequency combustion st ...

  5. Hybrid Prediction Method for Aircraft Interior Noise

    SBC: ESI US R&D            Topic: A204

    The goal of the project is research and development of methods for application of the Hybrid FE-SEA method to aircraft vibro-acoustic problems. This proposal discusses the development and application of new methods of structural-acoustic analysis in order to address existing problems in aircraft interior noise prediction. The proposed methods are based on a hybrid modeling strategy that combines ...

  6. Affordable High Power Density Engine Designs for Personal Air Vehicles

    SBC: GSE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Next generation General Aviation (GA) Sport Class air vehicles limited to 1200lbs, represent the first opportunity to overhaul the FAA certification process necessary to manufacture affordable aircraft. With propulsion representing over one-third of the direct manufacturing costs of the entire aircraft, dramatic reductions in aircraft engine costs must be achieved by design, economy of scale, and ...

  8. HIGH DENSITY CHEMICAL THERMAL STORAGE SYSTEM FOR LOW GRAVITY ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Rocky Research            Topic: N/A

    THERMAL STORAGE SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED FOR EFFECTIVE THERMAL MANAGEMENT ON MANNED SPACECRAFT AND PLANETARY BASED SYSTEMS. THERMAL STORAGE EQUIPMENT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO REDUCE THE OVERALL SYSTEM MASS BY DECREASING THE CAPACITY REQUIREMENTS OF HEAT PUMPS, REFRIGERATORS AND CHILLERS THROUGH LOAD LEVELING. TODAY'S THERMAL STORAGE CONCEPTS, HOWEVER, ARE INADEQUATE FOR SPACE APPLICATION, SINCE THE ENERGY D ...

  9. HIGH-TEMPERATURE-WASTE-HEAT-DRIVEN COOLING USING COMPLEX COMPOUND SORPTION MEDIA

    SBC: Rocky Research            Topic: N/A

    MANNED LUNAR BASES WILL REQUIRE COOLING FOR DEHUMIDIFICATION(ABOUT 40 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT) AND HABITAT (60 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT). THE BACKGROUND TEMPERATURE FOR HEAT REJECTION IS 125 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT, REQUIRING REJECT TEMPERATURES OF 180 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT OR ABOVE. WASTE HEAT WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM THE POWER-GENERATING SYSTEM ABOVE 500K (440 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT). COMPLEX-COMPOUND SORPTION CYCLES CA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. INNOVATIVE BOUNDARY LAYER CONTROL METHODS IN HIGH SPEED INLET SYSTEMS

    SBC: Rose Engineering & Research,            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM OF RESEARCH IS PROPOSED THAT WILL REVIEW THE RELEVANT LITERATURE ON RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN BOUNDARY LAYERCONTROL IN HIGH-SPEED ENGINE INLETS. OF PARTICULAR INTERESTWILL BE INLETS INTENDED TO OPERATE AT FLIGHT MACH NUMBERS ABOVE 3.0 WHERE VISCOUS EFFECTS DOMINATE THE BEHAVIOR OF THEINTERNAL FLOW. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING INNOVATIVE BOUND ...
