  1. An Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  2. Language Learning Experience in Virtual Reality

    SBC: A P Ventures, LLC            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a prototype of a virtual reality environment for high school students who are learning a foreign language. Students will become active participants in virtual scenarios using the target language of instruction (Russian in Phase I), with listening comprehension, vocabulary acquisition and recall, and grammar development occurring implicitly in simulated real-world context. At ...

  3. In-Situ X-Ray Imaging Systemand X-Ray Fluorescence for Planetary Science

    SBC: Advanced Analyzer Labs, Inc.            Topic: S1

    To answer the questions such as how have the myriad chemical and physical processes that shaped the solar system operated, interacted, and evolved over time? from ldquo;Vision and Voyages for Planetary Science in the Decade 2013-2022rdquo; by National Research Council, we propose to develop a compact, low-power, in-situ X-ray imaging and X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) instrument called Tomo-XRF probe to ...

  4. Real-Time Flight and Airspace Risk Monitoring for Airline Operations

    SBC: Robust Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Our Flight and Airport-Airspace Monitor (FAAM) will provide airline dispatchers and airline operations center managers a real-time tool to estimate the safety margin of a terminal airspace and flights operating in that airspace. Our concept divides the safety monitoring architecture into two components: an Airspace/Airport Monitoring component, and a Flight Monitoring system. The Airspace Monitor ...

  5. Dispatch Operations and Control for Autonomous Fleets

    SBC: Robust Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Robust Analytics proposes a suite of near-term technologies that can support managing multiple autonomous or semi-autonomous aircraft including Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vehicles simultaneously. Our approach builds off the existing knowledge base of airline operations, leveraging emerging technologies that enable autonomous flight.Our approach enables monitoring of ...

  6. An Early and In-Situ Cell Failure Detection and Reconditioning System for Lithium-Ion Batteries

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A2

    There is substantial evidence suggesting that a Lithium-ion cell undergoes internal structural and mechanical changes prior to a catastrophic failure. Some of these changes include electrode expansion, electrode ruffling, dendrite formation, internal gas formation, and internal density changes. A key characteristic of these changes is that most of them occur prior to any external measurable parame ...

  7. Nanoengineered Hybrid Gas Sensors for Spacesuit Monitoring

    SBC: N5 Sensors, Inc.            Topic: T6

    N5 Sensors partnering with George Mason University (GMU) have demonstrated ultra-small, low-power gas sensors, ideally suited for integrated space suit monitoring. A single-chip carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2), and ammonia (NH3) sensors capable of operating at high-humidity conditions, different range of oxygen in the environment and with low-power consumption was demonstrated as a proof-of-conc ...

  8. ROBOT: Rules Oriented Blockchain Operations Transactor


    Emergent Space Technologies (Emergent) proposes to develop ROBOT, the Rules Oriented Blockchain Operations Transactor. ROBOT extends Blockchain technology to the space domain, enabling essential autonomy for distributed spacecraft resource scheduling and tasking. In the ground segment of federated systems, where NASA does not control all resources, ROBOT enables system users to securely and transp ...

  9. Mars/Interplanetary Swarm Design and Evaluation Framework (MISDEF)

    SBC: Orbit Logic Incorporated            Topic: T4

    Addressing the needs of Mars exploration missions in the NASArsquo;s strategic plan will require robust and effective autonomous collaborative operations between heterogeneous assets. These ldquo;swarmsrdquo; may consisting of ground rovers, atmospheric craft and Mars-orbiting satellites. To maximize the satisfaction of overall mission objectives, be tolerant of faults/anomalies, and minimize the ...

  10. City Air Mobility Evaluation Operations Suite

    SBC: Robust Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and other non-traditional airspace operations present a new set of challenges to operators and air navigation service providers (ANSPs). In addition to meeting existing requirements for aircraft operational control and safety, operators will need to maintain operational control over their aircraft at all times, eventually without a pilot-on-board to monitor flight systems ...
