  1. Improved Firefighter Face Piece Lenses for Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: HSB0111006

    This multiphase project develops higher heat resistant materials for use in face shields of self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBAs) and brings them to commercial markets. Key findings of the Phase I work are that polyethersulfone (PES) is a promising replacement for polycarbonate (PC) with respect to thermal and optical properties. However, PES has considerably lower mechanical impact strengt ...

  2. RotCFD: A Viscous Design Tool for Advanced Configurations

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A209

    During initial design studies, parametric variation of vehicle geometry is routine. In addition, rotorcraft engineers traditionally use the wind tunnel to evaluate and finalize designs. Correlation between wind tunnel results and flight tests, when not good, have been often attributed in part to uncertainty in blockage corrections. Estimation of rotor blockage is significantly more complex than bl ...

  3. Advanced Supported Liquid Membranes for CO2 Control in EVA Applications

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: X402

    The development of new, robust, lightweight systems for CO2 removal during EVA is a crucial need for NASA. Current activity is focused on extending mission times without increasing the size and weight of the portable life support system (PLSS). Although CO2 sorbents that can be regenerated during EVA are being studied, these system add "on back" hardware, increasing weight and complexity, and re ...

  4. Multifunction Lidar for Air Data and Kinetic Air Hazard Measurement

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: A104

    Ophir's Phase I research was highly successful and all contract objectives and tasks were successfully completed. In Phase II, Ophir proposes to continue this important research by developing and flight testing a multifunction, low-cost, laser radar capable of enhancing aviation safety by accurately measuring kinetic air hazards, providing supplemental air data, and enhancing ride comfort. The i ...

  5. Novel Hemispherical Scanner for a Coherent Fiber LIDAR System

    SBC: SibellOptics, LLC            Topic: A302

    LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) systems have proven their value in the remote measurement of spatially resolved atmospheric wind velocities in a number of applications, including the detection of clear-air turbulence, wind shear, aircraft wake vortices, and microbursts. The capacity of coherent LIDAR systems to produce a continuous, real-time 3D scan of wind velocities via detection of the Mi ...

  7. A Rapid Model Fitting Tool Suite

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: S603

    An integral component of many NASA missions involves remote sensing of the environment, both terrestrial and celestial. This is a challenging problem, since quantities of interest typically can not be directly measured but instead must be inferred. These inferences are made by solving inverse problems, where complex forward models are inverted to estimate parameters of the model. These parameters ...

  8. Deployable Composite Structures

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: X501

    NASA is seeking innovative structure technologies that will advance expandable modules for orbital and surface based habitats. These secondary structures must increase utilization of the primary pressurized volumes by accommodating hardware, experiments, storage space, and cable routing. The expandable structures must use minimal launch mass and volume, be easy to install, and maximize operation ...

  9. An Aero-Acoustic Tool for Terminal Area Operations

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A209

    In this highly interconnected world, transportation systems must feature increased flexibility and shorter door-to-door trip times to be successful. Shorter door-to-door trip times require an increased usage of rotary wing and runway independent V/STOL technology. One of the limiting factors to the increased adoption of this technology for providing feeder service to major hubs is the limited un ...

  10. Highly Durable Catalysts for Ignition of Advanced Monopropellants

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: S304

    Monopropellants are readily ignited or decomposed over a bed of solid catalyst. A serious limitation of existing catalysts in the ignition of advanced monopropellants is limited thermal stability. The recent emphasis on improved performance of monopropellant technology (e.g., with AF M315E and LGP 1846), has led to the need for advanced materials possessing exceptional properties. Increased sp ...
