  1. Interfacial Design of Composite Ablative Materials

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A201

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project proposes the development of a computational software package to provide NASA with advanced materials development capabilities for existing and new ablative materials used in the next generation thermal protection systems (TPS) of space vehicles. This materials development software package (MDSAM) can be used to optimize properties (high streng ...

  2. Flight Adaptive Blade for Optimum Rotor Response (FABFORR)

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: A209

    While past research has demonstrated the utility and benefits to be gained with the application of advanced rotor system control concepts, none have been implemented to date on a production military or commercial rotorcraft. A key contributor to this fact is the inherent cost associated with installation and maintenance of these control systems, since many system designs require the replacement o ...

  3. Automation of Health Management, Troubleshooting and Recovery in Lunar Outpost

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X101

    The overall Phase-II goal is to develop the technologies and tools that can aid the automation of operation by providing intelligent decision support in situations when a mission plan needs alteration due to an event(s). The effort targets not only developing the algorithms, but also to implement them on QSI's TEAMS platform; this will transition the technologies into a useful tool for the A4 ...

  4. Design Environment for Multi-Fidelity and Multi-Disciplinary Components

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: A208

    Many of the most challenging categories of propulsion system development are related to the prediction of interacting effects between the fluid loads, thermal loads, and the structural deflection. In practice, the interactions between technical disciplines are often not fully explored analytically, and the analysis in one discipline often uses a simplified representation of other disciplines as an ...

  5. Blade Vibration Measurement System for Unducted Fans

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: A401

    With propulsion research programs focused on new levels of efficiency and noise, there are two emerging avenues for advanced gas turbine technology: the geared turbofan and ultra-high bypass ratio fan engines. Both of these candidates are being pursued as collaborative research projects between NASA and the engine OEMs. The high bypass concept from GE Aviation is an unducted fan which features a b ...

  6. Fault Tolerant Software-Defined Radio on Manycore

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: O103

    Mobile communications systems require programmable embedded platforms that can handle computationally demanding signal processing codes without the burden of high power consumption. As hardware performance improves, technology trends have shifted functionality from the gate level up to software, as demonstrated by the emergence of software defined radio. Traditionally, these platforms rely on FPGA ...

  7. Thermal Management System for Long-Lived Venus Landers

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S303

    The overall program objective is to develop a high-temperature passive thermal management system for the Radioisotope Power Conversion system that energizes the refrigeration system applicable to Venus missions. The innovation consists of a high temperature alkali metal variable conductance heat pipe (VCHP) integrated with a two-phase heat collection / transport package from the General Purpose ...

  8. Low-Noise, UV-to-SWIR Broadband Photodiodes for Large-Format Focal Plane Array Sensors

    SBC: DISCOVERY SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: S105

    Broadband focal plane arrays, operating in UV-to-SWIR wavelength range, are required for atmospheric monitoring of greenhouse gases. Currently, separate image sensors are used for different spectral sub-bands: GaN for UV, Si for visible, and InGaAs for SWIR, requiring expensive component-level integration for hyper-spectral imaging. Also, the size of the InGaAs focal plane arrays is currently limi ...

  9. NFAD Arrays for Single Photon Optical Communications at 1.5 um

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: O106

    For this program, we propose to develop large pixel-count single photon counting detector arrays suitable for deployment in spacecraft terminal receivers supporting long-range laser communication systems at 1.5 um. To surmount the present obstacles to higher photon counting rate -- as well as the complexity of back-end circuitry required -- in using conventional single photon avalanche diodes (SPA ...

  10. High Energy Density Li-Ion Batteries Designed for Low Temperature Applications

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: X701

    The state-of-the-art Li-ion batteries do not fully meet the energy density, power density and safety requirements specified by NASA for future exploration missions. Building upon our Phase I feasibility study, we propose to implement an advanced cathode material in practical Li-ion batteries. The cathode material offers superior electrochemical performance over its commercially used counterpart, p ...
