  1. 3-color DPAS Aerosol Absorption Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: S107

    We propose to develop a highly sensitive and compact device to monitor light absorption from atmospheric aerosols simultaneously at three spectral regions, red, green, and blue. The proposed method is primarily based on the differential photoacoustic (DPAS) technique and will also take advantage of the current rapid development on high-power semiconductor lasers. The proposed RGB DPAS Aerosol Abso ...

  2. A Framework for Autonomous Trajectory-Based Operations

    SBC: RESILIENT OPS, INC.            Topic: A302

    The innovation proposed is a framework for autonomous Traffic Flow Management (TFM) under Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). The concept, called DRIFT-UAS (Distributed Resilient Framework for Trajectory Management of Unmanned Aerial Systems), is a cloud-based system that consists of algorithms and an information-sharing framework that would enable autonomous traj ...

  3. A Multi-Wavelength Seed Derived Laser for In-Situ Validation of Airborne Remote Sensing Instruments

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S107

    This Phase I SBIR will establish the feasibility of developing a collinear three wavelength source for an in-situ, 1800, back scatter nephelometer. The three wavelength source is being developed to facilitate on-board validation measurements of airborne remote backscatter lidar. Currently, commercial nephelometers utilized for in-situ validation measurements employ wavelengths that are both not ...

  4. A SMART NAS Toolkit for Optimality Metrics Overlay

    SBC: RESILIENT OPS, INC.            Topic: A301

    The innovation proposed is a plug-and-play module for NASA's proposed SMART NAS (Shadow Mode Assessment using Realistic Technologies for the NAS) system that computes and displays metrics related to how close to optimal a simulated scenario is performing under various system objectives in a multi-objective setting. The module, called TOMO (Toolkit for Optimization Metrics Overlay) is a large-scal ...

  5. Active Twist Control for a Compliant Wing Structure

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: T401

    Blended wing body (BWB) aircraft provide an aerodynamically superior solution over traditional tube-and-wing designs for a number of mission profiles. These platforms provide an all-lifting surface with a reduced wetted area, which lead to significant aerodynamic improvements over their conventional counterparts. However, due to their lack of a conventional tail surface with which to trim in pitch ...

  6. Advanced Onboard Energy Storage Solution for Balloons

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: S306

    Advanced Balloon Programs at NASA are looking for a potential 100 day missions at mid-altitudes. These balloons would be powered by solar panels to take advantage of the power generated by sun. But during these long duration flights there is a potential of having 12 hours or more of darkness. It becomes critical that there is an energy system on board which can take advantage of excess solar po ...

  7. ASPECT (Automated System-level Performance Evaluation and Characterization Tool)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A201

    SSCI has developed a suite of SAA tools and an analysis capability referred to as ASPECT (Automated System-level Performance Evaluation and Characterization Tool). ASPECT encapsulates our airspace encounter generator, sensor/tracker fusion algorithms, and prediction, threat assessment, and avoidance modules. It also provides both component-level and system-level analysis that is required for eva ...

  8. Automated Manufacture of Damage Detecting, Self-Healing Composite Cryogenic Pressure Vessels

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: T1002

    After successfully demonstrating the basic functionality of a damage-detecting, self-healing 'smart' material system in Phase I, Aurora and UMass Lowell aim to advance the material technology to a TRL 5 in Phase II. The team will use their 'smart' material system to design and manufacture various scaled-up core-stiffened composite specimens in application-appropriate geometries, and subsequently t ...

  9. Benefit Analysis of Hybrid CNT/CFRP Composites in Future Aircraft Structures

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: A101

    During Phase I, Aurora Flight Sciences and N12 Technologies propose to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the benefits of hybrid composites in future aircraft structures by leveraging analytical model and experimental results that Aurora has gathered during the development of its indigenous Orion unmanned aircraft system, which utilizes CFRP composites in the majority of its structure. Target are ...

  10. Carbon Dioxide Collection and Pressurization Technology

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: H101

    In Situ Resource Utilization(ISRU) is a key technology required to enable missions to the Moon and Mars. The Martian atmosphere consists of 95% carbon dioxide which can be used in (ISRU) processes to synthesize propellant and life support consumables. Reactive Innovation proposes to develop a lightweight electrochemical reactor to collect and pressurize CO2 from the Martian atmosphere. The Phase I ...
