  1. 3D Flow Field Measurements using Aerosol Correlation Velocimetry

    SBC: AeroMancer Technologies Corporation            Topic: A108

    AeroMancer Technologies proposes to develop a 3D Global Lidar Airspeed Sensor (3D-LGAS) using Aerosol Correlation Velocimetry for standoff sensing of high-resolution spatially and temporally resolved three-component global airspeeds using a scanning elastic lidar. The proposed instrument uses range-resolved elastic backscatter data from a scanning lidar beam to generate a 3D map of aerosol density ...

  2. Advanced Organic Waste Gasifier

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: H3

    The Advanced Organic Waste Gasifier (AOWG) is a technology designed to convert organic wastes generated during human spaceflight into clean water for mission consumables and gases suitable for venting to minimize vehicle mass for Mars transit and return missions. The AOWG integrates steam reformation, methanation, and electrolysis to convert organic waste into water, dry vent gas, and a small amou ...

  3. An Airborne Continuous Flow Diffusion Chamber for Measuring Ice Nucleating Particles

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: S1

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding climate and environmental change, a NASA objective. The formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles (INP), and has major implications for precipitation and cloud properties. Observational capabilities are required to advance understanding o ...

  6. CAPURE AND RELIQUEFACTIOIN OF HYDROGEN BOILOFF AT SHUTTLE LAUNCH SITE

    SBC: Hydrogen Consultants Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE LIQUID HYDROGEN FUEL USED FOR THE SPACE SHUTTLE AT KENNEDY SPACE CENTER IS EXPEECTED TO GROW FROM A CURRENT ANNUAL RATE OF APPROXIMATELY 5 MILION GALLONS TO 10 MILLION GALLONS IN THE LATE 1980'S. ABOUT ONE THIRD OF THIS VOLUME LIQUID HYDROGEN IS LOST FORM STEADY STAT , AND PERIODIC SOURCES SUCH AS PRE-COOLING, LOADING AND UNLOADING OPERATIONS. IT IS THE INTENT OF THIS PROPOSAL TO ILLUSTRATE HO ...

  7. Carbonaceous Asteroid Volatile Recovery (CAVoR) system

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: H101

    The Carbonaceous Asteroid Volatile Recovery (CAVoR) system produces water and hydrogen-rich syngas for propellant production, life support consumables, and manufacturing from in-situ resources in support of advanced space exploration. The CAVoR thermally extracts ice and water bound to clay minerals, which is then combined with small amounts of oxygen to gasify organic matter contained in carbonac ...

  8. Ceramic Springs

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A1

    Hypersonic aircraft, especially reusable hypersonic aircraft, require advancements in high temperature materials because of the extreme temperatures resulting from frictional heating. One aspect of this problem is making seals that can function through a very large temperature range, perhaps up to 1000 deg;C or higher. Metallic springs essentially lose their ability to function at 600 deg;C or bel ...
