  2. Adaptive LIDAR Vision System for Advanced Robotics

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: H2001

    Advanced robotic systems demand an enhanced vision system and image processing algorithms to reduce the percentage of manual operation required. Unstructured environments, whether man-mad (e.g., International Space Station) or natural (e.g., Mars), present significant challenges to supervised autonomy or fully autonomous systems – advanced perception sensors and associated software are requir ...

  4. High Performance Lithium Sulfur Battery with Novel Separator Membrane for Space Applications

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: Z102

    For NASA's human and robotic mission, the battery with extremely high specific energy (>500 Wh/kg) and long cycle life are urgently sought after in order to reduce the payload weight. Current state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries, such as graphite/LiCoO2 or graphite/LiFePO4 systems, have limited specific energy to around 220 Wh/kg on the cell level. In order to meet the future NASA mission requ ...

  5. Flywheel Energy Storage for Lunar Rovers & Other Small Spacecraft

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S303

    NASA continues to be interested in returning to the Lunar surface. The Lunar surface is a harsh and unforgiving environment. Perhaps most challenging is the drastic and length thermal cycle surface equipment will experience on the surface. Standard spacecraft electronics and batteries cannot survive the extremes of the Lunar thermal cycle and must be protected by a thermal control system (TCS) tha ...

  6. High Resolution Autostereoscopic Cockpit Display

    SBC: Dimension Technologies Inc.            Topic: A103

    During this Phase II program Dimension Technologies Inc. (DTI) proposes to design and build an autostereoscopic (glasses-free 3D) LCD based aircraft cockpit display that features switchable 2D & 3D operation, full LCD resolution in both 2D and 3D modes, a wide viewing area without head position restrictions, and high brightness. The display will be configured for installation and testing in a Boe ...

  7. Specification Editing and Discovery Assistant

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: A106

    Accurate safety analysis of software suffers from a lack of appropriate tools for software developers. Current automated tools require approximate analyses; fully-assured verification with formal methods is expert-intensive. A key to improvement is machine-checkable specifications for software modules. Specifications are also needed to express the intent of software. Further, to scale to wide use, ...

  8. Direct Write Lightning Protection and Damage Detection

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A101

    This project aims to improve conventional lightning strike protection in composite aircraft and proposes a novel method to monitor structures for damage upon lightning strike. Metallic fasteners joining composite parts must be properly grounded to reduce lightning damage and fire risk. Composite panels in the most critical areas e.g., near fuel tanks, incorporate lightning strike protection (LSP ...

  9. Light Weight, Scalable Manufacturing of Telescope Optics

    SBC: RELIACOAT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: S204

    NASA's future X-ray astronomy missions will require X-ray optics that have large effective areas, are lightweight, and cost effective. Recent X-ray telescopes, such as the Chandra Observatory, utilized reflectors made from zerodur which were up to 20mm thick. The thickness of these reflectors, as well as the mass, limited the number of nested optics that could be implemented. Current state of t ...

  10. Optical Metrology of Aspheric and Freeform Mirrors

    SBC: OPTIPRO SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: S204

    The NASA Science Missions Directorate seeks technology for cost-effective high-performance advanced space telescopes for astrophysics and Earth science applications. These applications require instruments with large aperture light-weight highly reflecting mirrors and precision optical surfaces to gain a better understanding of how the universe works. The hard and soft X-ray mirrors have stringent ...
