  1. Turbopump Design for Deep Throttling Capability

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: T802

    This project will demonstrate the benefits of a partial emission pump coupled with a zero net positive suction pressure inducer design to achieve robust, deep throttling capability. This pump application is well suited for 5k to 15k lbf thrust range rocket engines.

  2. Advanced Materials and Fabrication Techniques for the Orion Attitude Control Motor

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: T901

    The Launch Abort System (LAS) for the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) will provide a safe escape for the crew in the event of an emergency during launch. A key component of the LAS is its Attitude Control Motor (ACM). Recent testing of the ACM valve assembly has resulted in failure during hot-fire testing. These failures are believed to be the result of the molybdenum alloy component disto ...

  3. Ridge Waveguide Structures in Magnesium-Doped Lithium Niobate

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    In this NASA Phase I STTR effort, the feasibility of fabricating isolated ridge waveguides in 5% magnesium-doped lithium niobate (5% MgO:LN) will be established. Ridge waveguides in MgO:LN will significantly improve the power handling and conversion efficiency, increase photonic component integration, and be well suited to space based applications. The key innovation in this effort is to combine ...

  4. An On-Chip Nano-Plasmonics Based Urine Protein Assay Cartridge

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T302

    Long-term exposure to microgravity and radiation during space exploration can pose a critical threat to the health of a flight crew. Real-time monitoring of urine protein levels is an effective way to follow the onset and progress of many diseases and guide the prompt selection of proper therapy. The success of such diagnostic tasks, which are vital for future space missions, critically depends up ...

  5. Benchmark Numerical Toolkits for High Performance Computing

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T501

    Computational codes in physics and engineering often use implicit solution algorithms that require linear algebra tools such as Ax=b solvers, eigenvalue, optimization, or graph algorithms. Developers face major challenges in selecting linear algebra tools that can support their algorithms, numerical schemes, meshes, and computing hardware and to minimize the time, space and complexity. The existin ...

  6. High-Fidelity Gas and Granular Flow Physics Models for Rocket Exhaust Interaction with Lunar Soil

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T701

    Soil debris liberated by spacecraft landing on the lunar surface may damage and contaminate surrounding spacecraft and habitat structures. Current numerical simulations of these events lack credibility because lunar environment complexities have never been captured in suitable models: the mixed rarefied-continuum nature of the plume's surface layer flow, and the highly irregular soil particle shap ...

  7. Non-Destructive Detection and Separation of Radiation Damaged Cells in Miniaturized, Inexpensive Device

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T102

    Our objective is to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device for non-destructive identification, sorting and counting of radiation damaged cells. A major thrust, using microarray experiments, is the discovery of unique cell surface markers for identification of radiation-damaged cells. A key innovative feature in the proposed device platform is a gravity-independent, optics-free, electr ...
