  1. SiC Avalanche Photodiodes and Arrays

    SBC: Aymont Technology, Inc.            Topic: S105

    Aymont Technology, Inc. (Aymont) will demonstrate the feasibility of SiC p-i-n avalanche photodiodes (APD) arrays. Aymont will demonstrate 4 x 4 arrays of 2 mm2 APDs for visible-blind high-sensitivity UV detection. These arrays will exhibit high gain (10^6), high quantum efficiency (peak < 50%), and high speed (). They will demonstrate scalability, allowing for larger arrays (20 x 20) in Phase ...

  2. Titanium Matrix Composite Pressure Vessel

    SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S202

    For over 15 years, FMW Composite Systems has developed Metal Matrix Composite manufacturing methodologies for fabricating silicon-carbide-fiber-reinforced titanium components, also known as Titanium Matrix Composites (TMC), for the aerospace industry. These efforts have resulted in successfully flight qualifying three TMC components, including a piston rod used in the divergent exhaust nozzle actu ...

  3. Static Detection of Bugs in Embedded Software Using Lightweight Verification

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: X203

    Validating software is a critical step in developing high confidence systems. Typical software development practices are not acceptable in systems where failure leads to loss of life or other high costs. Software best practices for high confidence systems are often codified as coding rules. Adhering to these practices can increase software readability and predictability, thereby enhancing qual ...

  4. Intelligent Flamefinder Detection and Alert System (IFDAS)


    NASA test and launch facilities, such as those at Stennis, Marshall, and other locations, require large amounts of hydrogen as a primary rocket fuel; hydrogen is also of growing interest in the private sector. Unfortunately, hydrogen burns with an essentially invisible flame, making detection of hydrogen fires difficult. Current methods of detecting hydrogen leaks and fires are limited in a number ...

  5. Digital System e-Prognostics for Critical Aircraft Computer Systems

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: A107

    Impact Technologies, in cooperation with Raytheon, proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative prognostics approach for aircraft digital electronics. The proposed non-invasive prognostic approach consists of advanced software and a minimal sensing, focused on incipient fault detection, isolating failure modes and predicting remaining useful life using improved prognostic models. The innovati ...

  6. HyDE Enhancements for IVHM System Deployment

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: X104

    Impact Technologies LLC, with support of the University of California Santa Cruz, proposes to develop and demonstrate a set of enhancements to NASA's Hybrid Diagnostic Engine (HyDE) that represent valuable and, in some cases, critical features for IVHM system developers in NASA and non-NASA application domains. Specifically, the Impact team believes that in order for HyDE to transition to a broad ...

  7. Integrating Prognostics in Automated Contingency Management Strategies for Advanced Aircraft Controls

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: T101

    Impact Technologies, in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to develop and demonstrate innovative technologies to integrate prognostics into Automated Contingency Management (ACM) for advanced aircraft controls. Without consideration of prognostic information, the traditional reactive fault tolerant control approaches may fail to provide optimal fault mitigation/accommodat ...

    STTR Phase I 2008 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. Low Noise Millimeter Wave LNA

    SBC: JJW Consulting, Inc.            Topic: S103

    The Phase I effort will result in a low noise MMIC G-Band amplifier the covers the entire 165 to 193GHz frequency range. The amplifier will be designed using a 50nm MHEMT that has already been developed by BAE Systems that enables the state-of-the-art performance to be achieved. The innovative amplifier design will have a gain of 20dB, a noise figure of less than 6dB(~4dB, an input output VSWR of ...

  9. Reaction Wheel Disturbance Model Extraction Software

    SBC: Nightsky Systems, Inc.            Topic: S701

    Reaction wheel mechanical noise is one of the largest sources of disturbance forcing on space-based observatories. Such noise arises from mass imbalance, bearing imperfections, and other sources. It takes the form of a number of discrete harmonics of the wheel speed, often also with a broadband noise component. Jitter problems can arise when harmonics sweep across observatory modes, and can be exa ...

  10. Gadolinium EUV Multilayers for Solar Imaging Near 60 nm

    SBC: Reflective X-ray Optics, LLC            Topic: S304

    We propose to develop and commercialize a new class of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) multilayer coatings containing the rare-earth element gadolinium (Gd), designed as efficient narrow-band reflective mirror coatings operating near normal incidence in the 60-65 nm wavelength range. This long-wavelength region of the EUV includes the important solar emission lines O V near l=63.0 nm and Mg X near l=61 ...
