The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Optimal Shockwave Boundary Layer Interaction Control for Supersonic Mixed Compression Inlets

    SBC: SynGenics Corporation            Topic: A210

    SynGenics Corporation proposes a program that incorporates systems engineering processes, Response Surface Methods, and state-of-the-art numerical methods to develop optimized, fail safe technologies to control shockwave boundary layer interactions and demonstrate improvements in supersonic mixed compression inlet performance. Specific program objectives are to apply structured, mathematically bas ...

  2. Integrated Structural Health Management

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A112

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to advance the state of the art in composite health management through refinement of an existing technology developed by CRG called Reflexive Composites. Reflexive Composites are the current state of the art in health management integrating piezoelectric structural health monitoring, healable polymer matrix composites, and intelligent controls delive ...

  3. Integrated Cognitive Assessment: Combining Measurement, System, and Mission

    SBC: NTI, Inc.            Topic: X1301

    Existing cognitive performance test batteries consist of synthetic tasks that, while they may probe isolated cognitive functions, provide an incomplete and unconvincing picture of an individual's true cognitive capacity within the total context of space missions. In essence, they are 'laboratory' measures that appear unrelated to the real-world environment. This leads to user non-compliance or rej ...

  4. Low AC-loss MgB2 Superconductors for Turbo-Electric Aircraft Propulsion Systems

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A201

    The development of magnesium diboride (MgB2) superconducting wires makes possible the potential to have much lighter weight superconducting stator and rotor coils for heavy aircraft motors and generators than with any other metal or ceramic superconductor. The MgB2 superconductor can be cooled to 20 K by liquid hydrogen fuel or conductively with a cyrocooler. The lighter weight coils, especiall ...

  5. Fast Responding PSP for Rotorcraft Aerodynamic Investigations

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A209

    The proposed work focuses on implementing fast-response pressure-sensitive paint and Surface Stress Sensitive Films for measurements of unsteady pressure and skin friction in rotorcraft applications. Significant rotorcraft problems such as dynamic stall, rotor blade loads in forward flight, and blade-vortex interaction all have significant unsteady pressure oscillations that must be resolved in or ...

  6. Elastic Films for Cyrogenic Skin Friction Measurements

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A401

    Here we introduce a new sensor for measurement of skin friction and pressure, Surface Stress Sensitive Film (S3F). This technique can operate over a range of temperatures from cryogenic (160 K, -113„aC) to well above ambient (470 K, 197„aC). The operation of the sensor is based on the deformations of an elastic film that distorts under the action of the applied normal and tangential loads. Skin ...

  7. Universal Smart Sensor Interface

    SBC: ORBITAL RESEARCH INC            Topic: O202

    Ground testing of propulsion systems requires highly accurate and precise sensor systems. Setting up such systems can be more time consuming than the test. The myriad of analog connections are subject to environmental noise. The ability to effectively calibrate sensors, digitize the signals in closer proximity to the sensor itself and to send real-unit data with sensor identification and time s ...

  8. Radiation Mitigation Methods for Reprogrammable FPGA

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: X103

    One of the needs of NASA is the development of avionic systems and components that have the capability to operate in extreme radiation and temperature environments found in deep space, as well as the lunar and Martian surfaces. As a result, spacecraft electronics will be required to be hardened against radiation environment and temperature cycling. In fact, they should withstand a total ionizing ...

  9. Plasma Control of Turbine Secondary Flows

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: A210

    We propose Phase I and II efforts that will focus on turbomachinery flow control. Specifically, the present work will investigate active control in a high speed turbine flow. The flow control actuators will be Single Dielectric Barrier Discharge (SDBD), or "plasma actuators." The work will be primarily experimental, with a focus on realistic operating environments for investigating the efficacy of ...

  10. Improved Ionic Liquids as Space Lubricants

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: X401

    Ionic liquids are candidate lubricant materials. However for application in low temperature space mechanisms their lubrication performance needs to be enhanced. UES Inc in collaboration with Covalent Technologies Inc propose to improve the tribological (lubrication) characteristics of the appropriate ionic liquids through formulation with innovative additive technology. The formulated ionic liqu ...
