  1. Innovative Hydrogen Peroxide Turbopump Design for Affordable Small Launch Vehicles.

    SBC: FRONTIER ASTRONAUTICS, LLC            Topic: Z9

    The concept proposed is that of an innovative turbopump for a staged combustion bi-propellant rocket engine using monopropellant to drive the turbine. The turbopump has a unique feature in that it has an electric generator used to generate electricity and power an external fuel pump.By using a monopropellant decomposed over a catalyst pack only one fluid can be used to drive one or more turbines. ...

  2. Damage Detection Using Two-Stage Compressive Sensing

    SBC: Advent Innovations Ltd. Co.            Topic: Z11

    NASA is developing new vehicles for human space flight. Many of these spacecraft are targeted for long-term use, which offers challenges for inspection and maintenance. In orbit or on the Moon or Mars, the use of traditional NDE is prohibitive because of location and inaccessibility, and infrequent inspection can lead to conservative, high-weight designs. NASA is seeking technologies to facilitate ...

  3. Ti, Cu, Al / WS2 Composite Dry Film Lubricant

    SBC: Applied Tungstenite Corporation            Topic: S4

    This SBIR Phase I will formulate and test a metal/WS2 Composite Dry Film Lubricant.The variables which will affect the result are the carrier gas temperature, the impact velocity on the substrate and the ratio of WS2 to metal.Three different metals are being explored to increase chances of success. Harder, higher melting point metals like Ti64 are more challenging for the Cold Spray technique, but ...

  6. Unstructured Overset Hybrid RANS/LES Simulations for Jet Noise Prediction

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: A1

    The objective of this proposal is the development and demonstration of an efficient scale-resolving aeroacoustic approach for the prediction of noise generated by installed engine configurations. The development of new engine concepts has traditionally relied on inexpensive low and mid-fidelity methods combined with expensive experimental campaigns. Scale-resolving simulations offer a cost-effecti ...

  8. Innovative Hydrogen Peroxide Turbopump Design for Affordable Small Launch Vehicles.

    SBC: FRONTIER ASTRONAUTICS, LLC            Topic: Z9

    The concept proposed is that of an innovative turbopump using hydrogen peroxide to drive the turbine. The turbopump has a unique feature in that it has an integral electric generator used to generate electricity and power an external fuel pump.By using hydrogen peroxide decomposed over a catalyst pack only one fluid can be used to drive the turbine. Typically, a turbopump combusts a fuel and an ox ...

  9. Damage Detection Using Two-Stage Compressive Sensing

    SBC: Advent Innovations Ltd. Co.            Topic: Z11

    NASA is developing new vehicles for human space flight. The Orion crew module is a reusable capsule that provides a habitat for the crew and facilitates exploration of the Moon, asteroids, and Mars. The Space Launch System (SLS) is a heavy lift system and is part of NASArsquo;s deep space exploration plans. The SLS will carry humans beyond low Earth orbit and will deliver elements of the Lunar Orb ...
