  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 ...

  2. Versatile Wireless Data Net

    SBC: Alpha Beta Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed R&D is to develop a wireless data networking capability. A prototype capability will result from the Phase 1 and 2 contracts. The Versatile Wireless Data Net (VWDN) employs an 802.11x wireless protocol for a network of sensor, recording, and monitoring nodes. The concept combines extensive computational capability with a family of transducers in self-contained packages with an ele ...

  4. Rad-hard Reconfigurable Bi-Directional Level Shifters Technology for Micro- and Nanosatellites

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: S104

    Various technologies available to space system designers that operate at different voltage levels. It is, however, important to interface, maintain, and update these systems. For example, the Sun Earth Connection (SEC) missions are likely to have a variety of experiments needing to be accomplished with a single nanosatellite. A rad-hard reconfigurable bi-directional level shifters would allow th ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. High Order Wavelet-Based Multiresolution Technology for Airframe Noise Prediction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A204

    We propose to develop a novel, high-accuracy, high-fidelity, multiresolution (MRES), wavelet-based framework for efficient prediction of airframe noise sources and acoustic propagation. In Phase I, 2D and 3D models of MRES methodology were developed. An acoustic analogy module based on Ffowcs Williams and Hawking technique was developed to accurately propagate the near-field acoustic signals to fa ...

  7. A Novel Microfluidic Device for Fully Automated Extraction of RNA from Cell Cultures

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: B203

    Obtaining high quality, intact RNA from cells is an ubiquitous need in the pursuit of space biology. Our overall objective is to develop and commercialize a microfluidics based miniaturized platform (MED-RNA) that can fully automate the complex process of RNA isolation. Starting from harvested whole mammalian cells in a culture medium, MED-RNA will lyse, capture, and isolate RNA content for later ...

  8. Understanding and Mitigating Adverse Health Effects in Space Using A System Physiology Software

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: B104

    NASA's vision for Space Exploration aims for human interplanetary missions that have significant challenges on crew health and safety including fluid shifts, and post-flight orthostatic intolerance. A predictive software tool that advances the understanding of underlying biofluid dynamics is critical to affordably analyzing and designing protective systems and countermeasures. CFDRC proposes to d ...

  9. High Energy, Low Temperature Gelled Bi-Propellant Formulation for Long-Duration In-Space Propulsion

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: X605

    Development of a candidate bi-propellant system consisting of a gelled hydrocarbon fuel coupled with a highly energetic gelled oxidizer suitable for outer planetary missions is proposed. Theoretical calculations suggest that this innovative combination can meet NASA's propulsion requirements for low power consumption (i.e. minimal use of heaters) while providing a vacuum specific impulse of ~ 360 ...

  10. Aeroelastic Simulation Tool for Inflatable Ballute Aerocapture

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: S102

    This project will develop a much-needed multidisciplinary analysis tool for predicting the impact of aeroelastic effects on the functionality of inflatable aeroassist vehicles. High-fidelity computational modules for fluid dynamics, heat transfer, structural dynamics, and dynamic motion will be coupled into a multidisciplinary computing environment. The multi-disciplinary system has been successfu ...
