  1. CONTAMINANT RETURN FLUX EXPERIMENT AND MODELING

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO DEVELOPING A RETURN FLUX EXPERIMENT OF VEHICLE EMITTED GASES, VIA COLLISIONS WITH THEAMBIENT ATMOSPHERE, IS PRESENTED. THE SENSORS AND SOURCES REQUIREMENTS ARE DEVELOPED IN CONJUNCTION WITH NECESSARY MODELING PARAMETERS ASSESSMENT. THE EXPERIMENT PACKAGE IS DESIGNED FOR DEPLOYMENT IN THE SHUTTLE PAYLOAD BAY. THE SENSORS TO BE EVALUATED INCLUDE A PRESSURE GAUGE WITH DIRECT ...

  2. IMPROVED CONTAMINATION MODELING ANALYSIS

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING CONTAMINATION ASSESSMENT MODELS FOR SPACECRAFT UTILIZE A SINGLE COLLISION SCATTERING MODEL TO PREDICT FLUXES OF CONTAMINANTS ON SURFACES AND CONTRIBUTIONS TO OPTICAL LINES-OF-SIGHT. THEY ALSO DO NOT INCLUDE THE RAM PRESSURE BUILDUP OF AMBIENT GASES NEAR SPACECRAFT SURFACES. AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH IS PRESENTED THAT UPDATES THE GAS DYNAMICS MODELING OF CONTAMINANTS AND AMBIENT ATMOSPHERE IN ...

  3. DIRECT COMPUTATION OF TURBULENCE NOISE

    SBC: Aerochem Research            Topic: N/A

    DIRECT COMPUTATION OF TURBULENCE NOISE IS A LOGICAL APPLICATION FOR ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS, CFD, PROGRAMS RUN ON SUPERCOMPUTERS. THIS WOULD ELIMINATE THE HIGHLY EMPIRICAL ASPECTS OF PRESENT NOISE PREDICTION TECHNIQUES AND ENABLE STUDY OF ADVANCED HYPERSONIC PROPULSION SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, MANY OF THE SAME PERSISTENT PROBLEMS OF IMPLEMENTATION THAT EXIST IN AEROACOUSTIC THEORY AND MEASU ...

  4. PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION FOR ROTORS IN HOVER AND AXIAL FLIGHT

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ROTORCRAFT COMMUNITY HAS A CONTINUING NEED FOR IMPROVED DESIGN TECHNIQUES FOR HOVER AND AXIAL FLIGHT. SUCH TECHNIQUES CAN BE EMPLOYED TO BEST ADVANTAGE IF THEY ARE COUPLED WITH NUMERICAL OPTIMIZATION METHODS. THIS COUPLING WOULD MINIMIZE TRIAL AND ERROR COMPUTATIONS WHEN SEARCHING FOR CONFIGURATIONS TO MEET PARTICULAR DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS. A NEW, HIGHLY ADVANCED HOVER PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS REC ...

  5. "HIGH PERFORMANCE INDIUM GALLIUM ARSENIDE ARRAYS FOR THE 1.0-1.7 MICRON SPECTRUM"

    SBC: Eti Instrument Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO OPTIMIZE EPITAXIAL LAYERS OF IN.53GA.47AS ALLOYS WHICH DETECT LIGHT IN THE 1.0-1.7 MICRON SPECTRAL REGION. THE GOAL OF THE PROGRAM IS TO BRING THE YIELD OF INGAAS PHOTODIODES TO SUCH A LEVEL THAT PRODUCTION OF MULTI-ELEMENT (>50) LINEAR ARRAYS WITH 10% UNIFORMITY BECOMEPRACTICAL WITHIN THE PHASE I EFFORT. WE PLAN TO GROW DETECTOR STRUCTURES IN OUR HYDRIDE VAPOR PHASE EPITAXIAL (VPE) ...

  6. INTELLIGENT EVALUATION SYSTEM FOR SIMULATOR TRAINING

    SBC: GLOBAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    FLIGHT SIMULATION IS A PRIMARY AND CRITICAL FORM OF TRAINING. HOWEVER, CURRENT SIMULATORS HAVE NOT YET BEEN INTEGRATED WITH COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING (CBT) TECHNOLOGY. THIS MEANS THAT AUTHORING TOOLS AND OTHER TYPICAL CBT CAPABILITIES SUCH AS PERFORMANCE MONITORING, GIVING ADVISE TO STUDENTS AND ANSWERING QUESTIONS, AND RECORD KEEPING FUNCTIONS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR TRAINING WITH SIMULATORS. WE BELI ...

  7. ROLLER-GEAR DRIVE FOR ROBOTIC MANIPULATORS

    SBC: Nastec, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MULTIROLLER PLANETARY TRACTION DRIVES (FIGURE 1) OFFER A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF COMPACTNESS, HIGH EFFICIENCY AND HIGH TORSIONAL STIFFNESS IN HIGH RATIO DRIVES. THEY HAVE THE ADDED ADVANTAGES OF BACK-LASH FREE OPERATION, LOW NOISE AND VIBRATION, NO GEAR COGGING AND SMOOTH TORQUE TRANSFER IN BIDIRECTIONAL OPERATION. PRESENTLY USED PLANETARY GEAR SYSTEMS SUFFER FROM EITHER BACK-LASH OR LOSS OF EFFICIE ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. MULTICOLOR AC PLASMA FLAT PANEL DISPLAY FOR SPACE STATION APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Photonics Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MULTICOLOR, DOT MATRIX FLAT PANEL DISPLAYS ARE NOT CURRENTLYAVAILABLE FROM ANY MANUFACTURER - GIVEN FOR TERRESTRIAL USE.PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGY PROPOSES TO DEVELOP SUCH A MULTICOLOR DISPLAY FOR SPACE STATION APPLICATIONS. MONOCHROMATIC AC PLASMA DISPLAYS ARE CURRENTLY BEING SPECIFIED IN HIGH ALTITUDE, MILITARY PROGRAMS. MULTICOLOR AC PLASMA DISPLAYS REPRESENT ONE OF THE LEADING COLOR FLAT PANEL TECHN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. DAMPER- DIGITAL ACTIVE MATERIALS-PROCESSING PLATFORM EFFORT

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE DIGITAL ACTIVE MATERIALS-PROCESSING PLATFORM EFFORT BE- ING PROPOSED HERE SEEKS TO DEVELOP AN ACTIVELY STABILIZD PLATFORM UPON WHICH MICRO-G MATERIALS PROCESSING EXPERIMENTSCAN BE PERFORMED IN SPACE. WITH THE SUC- CESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE TWO-STEP PHASE I WORKPLAN APPLIED TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATES (ATA) HAS CLEARLY AND SUCCINTLY DEFINED THE PROBLEM OF PLATFORM ISOLATION IN SPACE AND HAS COMPLETEL ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. ENHANCED COMPUTATIONAL STRUCTURAL METHODS FOR AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Ai Ware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TWO METHODOLOGIES FOR INCREASING THE EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF COMPUTER ANALYSIS OF AEROSPACE STRUCTURES WILL BE ADDRESSED. THE APPROACH INCORPORATES FUNCTIONAL-LINK, NEURAL-NET TECHNOLOGY FOR GENERALIZATION OFQUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS RESULTS (SO AS TO CIRCUMVENT THE NEED FOR EXTENSIVE, TIME-CONSUMING REANALYSIS) AND EPISODAL ASSOCIATIVE MEMORY FOR CAPTURING DESIGN EXPERIENCE TO GUIDE CREATION ...
