  1. Novel Non-Intrusive Vibration Monitoring System for Turbopumps

    SBC: AI Signal Research, Inc.            Topic: X601

    AI Signal Research, Inc. proposes to develop a Non-Intrusive Vibration Measurement System (NI-VMS) for turbopumps which will provide effective on-board/off-board fault detection diagnostic capabilities without relying on any intrusive installation of once per revolution (1/Rev) tachometer key phasor measurement. Many vibration signature analysis techniques use a key phasor signal to identify and ...

  4. Constellation C3I Crew-Ground-Experimenter-Developer Collaboration Services

    SBC: AZ Technology Inc            Topic: B501

    The Command, Control, Communications and Information (C3I) environment will be significantly different for Constellation than for Shuttle and International Space Station (ISS). Missions will operate not only in Near Earth round-trip latencies (RTLT) of seconds but also Near Mars RTLT of 10 to 40 minutes. New classes of collaboration services are required to support the spectrum of Constellation ...
