  1. Integration of Complex Geometry, 3D Woven Preforms via Innovative Stitching Technique

    SBC: T.E.A.M., INC.            Topic: H701

    Thick, 3D woven carbon/phenolic composites offer potential improvement over legacy thermal protection systems (TPS) for re-entry vehicle heat shield applications. However due to the scale and complexity of typical re-entry vehicle structures, it is likely that multiple 3D woven panels would need to laid up to create the overall heat shield, creating a potential weak spots at the panel joints. ...

  2. Airline Operational Control (AOC)/UAS Ground Control Station (GCS) Collaboration

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A201

    We propose to form a network and a set of tools that will create a shared situation awareness with Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Ground Control Stations (GCSs) and airline dispatchers at Airline Operations Centers (AOCs). Our solution is motivated by the Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) community in commercial aviation, where the CDMnet was created back in 1997 to facilitate collaboration be ...

  3. A High Performance Chemical Simulation Preprocessor and Source Code Generator

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: S501

    Numerical simulations of chemical kinetics are a critical component of aerospace research, Earth systems research, and energy research. These simulations enable a better understanding of the evolution of chemical species over time in domains as diverse as climate and weather prediction, combustion simulation, and air quality prediction. The time-to-solution in these simulations can be improved by ...

  4. Advancing High Energy Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: Z102

    Lithium-Ion batteries have been a main source of energy for many aerospace applications over the past decade. Future space missions are facing a number of challenging requirements, including significant increase in specific energy, approaching 500 Wh/kg, and energy density of 700 Wh/l at cell level. Compared to state-of-the-art technology today, a reduction in mass and volume are necessary, along ...

  6. Monolithic Gradient Index Phase Plate Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S204

    The "piston errors" and aberrations of the mirror segments used in large telescopes, are typically measured with on-board optical instruments, usually a dispersed Hartman sensor (DHS) and/or dispersed fringe sensor (DFS). Calibrating and testing of the wavefront sensors are typically performed using custom-built fused silica phase plate arrays. The manufacture and assembly of each custom phase pla ...

  7. Passive Collapsible Contingency Urinal for Human Spaceflight

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H1002

    Acute challenges are faced by the designers of fluid transport systems for spacecraft because of the persistently unfamiliar and unforgiving low-g environment. However, with modern design tools capillarity can used to passively perform critical life support functions, increasing reliability, while enabling new device functionality. Such systems are directly tied to critical life support systems: i ...

  8. Scaleable, High Efficiency Microchannel Sabatier Reactor

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H101

    A Microchannel Sabatier Reactor System (MSRS) consisting of cross connected arrays of isothermal or graded temperature reactors is proposed. The reactor array enables nearly complete single pass carbon dioxide reduction using the Sabatier reaction, allowing efficient recovery of oxygen from in situ carbon dioxide resources on Mars or other Near Earth Objects. Arrays of microchannel reactors with ...

  9. Bead Evaporator for Complete Water and Salt Recovery from Brine

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H2002

    A microgravity-compatible Brine Evaporation and Mineralization System (BEMS) is proposed for 100% water recovery from highly contaminated wastewater as well as water generated from entrained organic contaminant oxidation without concern for precipitation of organic and inorganic solids. The BEMS utilizes fully regenerable evaporation media, a catalytic oxidizer, and heat exchange technologies, wh ...

  10. Plasma Extraction of Oxygen from Martian Atmosphere

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H101

    Plasma techniques are proposed for the extraction of oxygen from the abundant carbon dioxide contained in the Martian atmosphere (96 % CO2). In this process, CO2 is directly decomposed in an energetic plasma forming O2 and CO, which are immediately separated. The Phase I project will clearly demonstrate the feasibility of achieving these goals by focusing on key aspects of the technology, such a ...
