  3. Low Erosion Ceramic Composite Liners for Improved Performance of Ablative Rocket Thrust Chambers

    SBC: Hyper-Therm High-Temperature Composites            Topic: T801

    Advanced liquid rocket propulsion systems must achieve longer burn times without performance degradation to allow the lowest cost per kilogram access to space. Ablative thrust chambers have an extensive heritage and are the low cost approach to fabricating rocket thrust chambers. However, composite ablative chambers are heavy and suffer from erosion that typically limits performance of the engine ...

  4. Process-Hardened, Multi-Analyte Sensor for Characterizing Rocket Plum Constituents Under Test Environment

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the Phase II STTR project is to develop a prototype multi-analyte sensor system to detect gaseous analytes present in the test stands during propulsion test activities. Data on the concentrations of propellant-derived species are important to assure proper integration of safety protocols with testing activities to comply with environmental regulations. InnoSense LLC (ISL) has uti ...

  6. Hydroxyl Tagging Velocimetry for Rocket Plumes

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: T901

    A non-intrusive method for measuring velocities in a rocket exhaust is proposed in a joint effort by MetroLaser and Vanderbilt University. Hydroxyl Tagging Velocimetry (HTV) uses an ultraviolet laser to tag a region of the flow with OH molecules, and interrogates them after a short delay with a second laser to obtain velocity from time-of-flight data. The method relies on the dissociation of H2O m ...

  7. Non Intrrusive, On-line, Simultaneous Multi-Species Impurity Monitor in Hydrogen

    SBC: Mississippi Ethanol, LLC            Topic: T901

    The purity of hydrogen fuel is important in engine testing at SSC. The hydrogen may become contaminated with nitrogen, argon, helium or oxygen. The hydrogen from the fuel tank s or feed lines is analyzed beforehand. Therefore, there is a need for a non-intrusive, on-line, near real-time monitor for H2. The analytical technique should measure various impurities (molecular and atomic) simultaneousl ...

  8. InGaN Nanowire Solar Cells

    SBC: VIPMobile, Inc.            Topic: T301

    NASA has very specific requirements when it comes to power generation technology. Solar panels are an obvious solution but making them suitable for the grueling space environment. Panels must withstand intense radiation bombardment and extreme temperature swings while maintaining acceptable levels of efficiency. Additionally because of the exorbitant costs of current technology NASA would like to ...

  9. 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 ...
