  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. 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 ...

  3. Nanoporous Membrane for Medical Grade Water Generation

    SBC: H-CUBED            Topic: T302

    For NASA exploration missions to the Moon and Mars, medical grade water generation is a necessity. Adsorption filter technology has shown some promise, but requires transport of disposable/replacement filter cartridges, which adds to the overall mass/volume of the system for medical grade water generation. Distillation and reverse osmosis are other techniques that are used to generate medical grad ...

  4. Flight Lossless Data Compression Electronics

    SBC: ICS LLC            Topic: T401

    The proposed work seeks to drastically increase the capability of the lossless data compression technology embedded in the currently used flight part known as USES (Universal Source Encoder for Space). USES met the CCSDS 121-0-B 1 recommendation. New advances to the lossless data compression electronic technology which advances the current flight electronics device: • Increase quantization lev ...

  5. Self-Regulating Freezable Heat Exchanger and Radiator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T501

    At present, both the astronaut's metabolic heat and that produced by the Portable Life Support System are rejected to space by a sublimator that consumes up to 8 pounds of water per use; the single largest expendable during an eight-hour EVA. Unfortunately, this will not be acceptable for lunar and interplanetary missions where resupply is difficult. We can greatly reduce the water consumption b ...

  6. Triple3 Redundant Spacecraft Subsystems (T3RSS)

    SBC: REDEFINE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: T101

    T3RSS is the system engineer's tool that allows a systematic approach to ensuring that even if one or more failures occur in a single component or subsystem, then the subsystem will continue to function and most, if not all, mission objectives can still be achieved. T3RSS does this by using a Configuration Manager for a Dynamically Reconfigurable System (CMDRS). This piece of logic employs a Missi ...

  7. Advanced Granular System Modeling

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS, INC.            Topic: T601

    Spaceports of the future will utilize new granular materials in unique applications including insulation for cryogenic tanks and Lunar regolith processing for usable resources. New granular insulation materials such as microspheres provide the opportunity to construct and operate safe and energy-efficient cryogenic storage tanks in the future. These materials have been demonstrated in small-scale ...

  8. TDLAS Test-stand Diagnostics Development for Velocity, Temperature, Efficiency, and Erosion for Space Shuttle Main Engines

    SBC: Zolo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T901

    We propose here to develop tunable diode laser spectroscopy as a diagnostic for the Space Shuttle main engines during test stand operations. These engines represent the state-of-the-art in rocket engine propulsion systems, and as such, they stretch available technology to the limit. The engines must be test-fired through several cycles prior to incorporation into the shuttle for flight operations. ...
