  1. Provably Convergent Game-Theoretic Coordination for Space Vehicle Swarms

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: T4

    This program will develop a communication-less solution to decentralized control and task coordination for multi-agent systems (MAS). Reducing the operational burden of MAS swarms on human operators will greatly improve the capability of spacecraft constellations and distant planetary explorations. The proposed solution would guide the MAS towards a cost minimized set of actions by performing grad ...

  2. Performance Based Autonomous Precision Approach and Landing System

    SBC: Bolder Flight Systems Inc.            Topic: A3

    Novel aircraft concepts enable a future Air Transportation System (ATS) with reduced emissions, reduced noise, improved mobility, and radically new modes of transportation, such as urban air taxis, autonomous deliveries of goods, and improved weather and ground traffic monitoring. The future ATS will need to support an incredibly diverse set of vehicles operating from urban vertiports in addition ...

  3. High Temperature, Radiation-Hard, Metal-Oxide Based Power Electronics

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: S4

    Power electronics is a core enabling technology for virtually all electronic systems. Power density, conversion efficiency, and reliability of power converters represent the three most critical requirements for aerospace, defense and many commercial applications alike. High temperature and radiation tolerant, wide bandgap materials, such as GaN and SiC, have offered a number of technological break ...

  4. Titan Aerial Research Vehicle for Scientific Exploration

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: S3

    The proposed mono-wing planetary aerial vehicle are small unmanned aircraft with biological inspiration derived from a samara (winged seed). The Titan Aerial Research Vehicle (TARV) mimics the natural aerodynamics of the samara planform and its auto-rotating shape. The TARV will be an exploratory vehicle capable of controlled flight, hover, and repeated takeoff and landing maneuvers on Titan for s ...

  5. Real Time Flight Envelope Estimation and Feedback for UAS Verification, Validation, and Certification

    SBC: Bolder Flight Systems Inc.            Topic: A2

    Recent advances in computing enable Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to conduct high quality missions with the implicit promise of lower cost and effort than manned aircraft. However, a lack of methods, architectures, and tools to enable verification, validation, and certification of UAS flight control systems is a major technological barrier to widespread adoption of UAS in civil aviation and NASA ...

  6. Graceful Degradation of TBO Automation

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Implementation of Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) to date has been limited to a subset of the National Airspace Systemrsquo;s (NASrsquo;s) operating environment. The result is that key TBO systems, such as TBFM, are not functional and are turned off at times when unable to support the current NAS operating conditions.nbsp; To fulfill the promise of TBO, systems like TBFM need to be robust to the ...

  7. Airport Surface State Event Tracker (ASSET)

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Integrated Arrival Departure Surface (IADS) traffic management solutions require accurate information about aircraft on the airport surface, from the gate to the runway. Only a small fraction of airports have surface surveillance and in almost every case coverage is limited to the airport’s movement area. A solution is needed that can compensate for the shortage of surveillance and is economic ...

  8. Predictor of Airport Runway Capacity (PARC)

    SBC: Architecture Technology, Inc.            Topic: A3

    The Predictor of Airport Runway Capacity (PARC) is a decision support tool for air traffic managers to estimate the near-term capacity of the individual runways of an airport for traffic planning and control. To estimate runway capacity, PARC analyzes historical data describing an airport’s traffic movements, operating conditions, operating procedures, and geospatial data to determine the time i ...

  9. Protecting Cardiomyocytes from Mixed Fields of Radiation by BIO 300

    SBC: Humanetics Corporation            Topic: H1201

    The cumulative dose of radiation exposure to our astronauts remains one of the limiting roadblocks to longer duration missions in space. Humanetics Corporation (Humanetics) is developing a novel radioprotectant, BIO 300, for use in both clinical radiotherapy and as a radiation countermeasure. BIO 300 is a safe, shelf-stable pharmaceutical which has been shown to mitigate both the acute and delaye ...

  10. Reinforcement Learning For Coordination And Control of Swarming Satellites

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: T403

    Inspired by frequent observation of repetitive learned swarm behavior exhibited in nature, this novel program will develop and demonstrate new capabilities in decentralized control of large heterogeneous vehicle swarms limited in communication, sensors, and actuators, with direct application to communication-less coordination. These goals are accomplished through the adaptation and use of Reinforc ...
