  1. QMU in Integrated Spacecraft System Models

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: T5

    ACTA and Sandia National Laboratories propose to quantify and propagate substructure modeling uncertainty for reduced-order substructure models to higher levels of system assembly, thereby enabling predictive simulations of engineering designs with quantified margins and uncertainties for model-based flight qualification of complete spacecraft. A critical part of this process is the accurate mode ...

  2. Thermal Management System for Long-Lived Venus Landers

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S303

    Long-lived Venus landers require power and cooling. Heat from the roughly 64 General Purpose Heat Source (GPHS) modules must be delivered to the convertor with minimal ÄT. The cooling system must be shutoff during the transit to Venus without overheating the GPHS modules. This program will develop an alkali metal Variable Conductance Heat Pipe (VCHP) integrated with a two-phase heat collection/tr ...

  3. Loop Heat Pipe with Thermal Control Valve for Passive Variable Thermal Link

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S302

    Loop heat pipes (LHPs) can provide variable thermal conductance needed to maintain electronics and batteries on Lunar/Martian rovers/landers within desired temperature range. During lunar day, the LHP transfers the heat to the radiator for rejection. During the fourteen-day-long lunar night, the sink temperature drops, lowering LHP and WEB/battery temperatures. Without a variable thermal link, the ...

  4. Interfacial Design of Composite Ablative Materials

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A201

    This Phase I Small Business Innovative Research project proposes to develop a multiscale computational methodology capable of accurate prediction of the properties and performance of insulating ablative materials that are used to protect the re-entry of vehicles from excessive thermal loads. In particular, this effort will focus on multi-million atom, reactive molecular dynamics (MD) simulations o ...

  5. A Compact, Efficient Pyrolysis/Oxidation System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery in Space

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: X203

    Pyrolysis processing can be used in near term missions for volume reduction, water recovery (drying), stabilization, and enhanced water and oxygen recovery through thermochemical reactions. For longer term missions, the added benefits include production of fuel, multi-purpose carbon, and reactants for in-situ resource utilization (ISRU). The objective of the Phase I SBIR program was to demonstrate ...

  6. Flash3D EDL Sensor Technology Advancement

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: S501

    3D Flash LIDAR is ideal for determining real-time spacecraft trajectory, speed, orientation, and range to the planet surface, as well as evaluating potential hazards at the landing site. The "framing camera" nature, of 3D Flash LIDAR systems, makes them well suited as hazard avoidance sensors for EDL. The Phase II effort seeks to improve the range precision of the existing TigerEyeTM 3D Flash LI ...

  7. Robust Flash 3D-FPA Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: S501

    Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) is a small business, which has developed a compact, eye-safe 3D Flash LIDARTM Camera (FLC) well suited for real-time spacecraft trajectory, speed, orientation measurements relative to the planet's surfaces and evaluating potential hazards during the critical landing sequence. Data collected using ASC's FLC at JPL's Mars Yard and in NASA ALHAT flight tests ...

  8. Distributed Rocket Engine Testing Health Monitoring System

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: O2

    Leveraging the Phase I achievements of the Distributed Rocket Engine Testing Health Monitoring System (DiRETHMS) including its software toolsets and system building blocks, the Phase II project seeks a comprehensive prototyping of the technology. Phase II not only expands the functionality and applications of the Phase I achievements, but utilizes evolving diagnostics due to the advanced intellige ...

  9. Advanced Structural Health Monitoring System for Comprehensive Real-Time Vehicle Characterization

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: T1

    In providing an innovative solution to improving information technologies and health management systems, AGNC is proposing a significant technological achievement with the Advanced Structural Health Monitoring System for Comprehensive Real-Time Vehicle Characterization. During in-flight conditions, this system is able to not only provide the status of information such as regarding the flight envel ...

  10. Long Out-time, Out-of-Autoclave Cure Composites

    SBC: APPLIED POLERAMIC INCORPORATED            Topic: X503

    As the size of composite parts exceed that of even the largest autoclaves, new out-of-autoclave processes and materials are necessary to achieve the same level of performance as autoclave cured composites. Unfortunately, the quality of composites manufactured with current out-of-autoclave prepreg systems is limited by their short shelf-life at ambient conditions. The resin advancement, due to lo ...
