  1. Highly Sensitive Flash LADAR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T9

    To address the urgent need for 3D flash-lidar technology for landing on solar system bodies and for spacecraft rendezvous and docking with satellites, an effort is proposed to fabricate, characterize, and test a versatile, high-sensitivity InGaAs APD 3D flash lidar and to advance the technology-readiness level (TRL) of lidar technologies suitable for NASA mission requirements. Leveraging an existi ...

  2. On-Demand Cost Situational Awareness for Urban Air Mobility

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A3

    Urban Air Mobility (UAM) will only be realized if the amount of people and vendors participating grows at a sufficient rate that allows for UAM to be profitable and beneficial to the passengers, airside service providers (ASPs), vertiport operators, and other stakeholders.nbsp; With the economy of scale, larger fleet sizes will bring down prices, and lower prices will encourage a greater number of ...

  4. Compact High-Degrees-of-Freedom Freeform Beam-Expander Optics

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S2

    To demonstrate the ability of freeform gradient optics to achieve compact lightweight high-performance beam-expanding optics, working with NASA subject matter experts and other stakeholders, the requirements for the lidar beam-expanding optical system will be refined. Design trade studies will be performed before various lidar beam-expander optics are designed and modeled. On-axis and off-axis afo ...

  5. Damage Detection Using Two-Stage Compressive Sensing

    SBC: Advent Innovations Ltd. Co.            Topic: Z11

    NASA is developing new vehicles for human space flight. The Orion crew module is a reusable capsule that provides a habitat for the crew and facilitates exploration of the Moon, asteroids, and Mars. The Space Launch System (SLS) is a heavy lift system and is part of NASArsquo;s deep space exploration plans. The SLS will carry humans beyond low Earth orbit and will deliver elements of the Lunar Orb ...

  6. Halogen Binding Resins for Potable Water Disinfection

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H3

    NASA is interested in alternative biocides for disinfecting process water.nbsp; During the proposed project, a resin will be developed for the slow-release of chlorine or bromine.nbsp; This resin will be used in a simple flow-through cartridge that will act as both a contact kill biocide device and as a source of free chlorine or bromine.nbsp; A halogen residual of 0.5 to 1.0 mg/L will be delivere ...

  7. Geiger-Mode Avalanche Detector Array for Optical Communications

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: H9

    Single-photon-counting detectors optimal for NASA long-range freespace optical telecommunications will be developed. The proposed effort addresses NASArsquo;s need for reliable sources of radiation-hardened 1064-nm- and 1550-nm-sensitive single-photon photoreceivers for deep-space communications. There has been previous investment in single-photon-sensitive detector arrays; InGaAs APD pixels opera ...

  8. Models as Microservices for Enabling Agile and Distributed MBSE

    SBC: INTERCAX, LLC            Topic: H6

    Models-as-Microservices (MamS) is a paradigm shift for agile and concurrent MBSE with globally distributed stakeholders. Model authors can publish models and data, in any format or database, as web-based microservices that can be dynamically composed and orchestrated to realize different engineering workflows for a given project or mission.nbsp; Model authors can configure the subset of model info ...

  9. Technologies Enabling Urban Air Mobility All-Weather Vertiport Operations

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A3

    The Innovation Laboratory, Inc., propose to develop a suite of technologies that can be used to expand the availability of the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vertiport. Our innovation, VertiSafe, is a collection of technologies, some traditional, and some unconventional, that when used in conjunction provides a clear view of the weather constraints and provides effective weather mitigation strategies to ...

  10. Graded Temperature Fecal Dryer-Densifier

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H3

    Solid wastes generated during long-duration manned missions beyond Low Earth Orbit (LEO) contain valuable resources that must be recovered and reused to reduce the resupply burden or be jettisoned to reduce fuel requirements.nbsp; It is vital that water be reclaimed from metabolic wastes since the cost of resupply becomes prohibitively expensive for long duration missions.nbsp; Therefore, practica ...
