  1. Optimization of Supersonic Jet Noise Using a Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes Approach

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: A1

    The objective of this proposal is the development and demonstration of a cost-effective high-fidelity aeroacoustic design tool for future commercial supersonic nozzle designs and installations. Although eddy-resolving CFD methods for computing high-speed jet noise are available, such methods are computationally expensive and are currently deemed impractical for use in a design optimization loop. ...

  2. Integrated Launch Vehicle Booster using a Rocket Engine with a Combined Thermodynamic Cycle

    SBC: FRONTIER ASTRONAUTICS, LLC            Topic: Z9

    The concept describes a booster for a launch vehicle that is simpler to make, transport and launch than current launch vehicles. It is composed of two major components. The first being a booster structure and the second being a liquid rocket engine that uses a thermodynamic cycle that is a combination of two common cycles.Furthermore, the engine is actually fairly simple when compared to modern li ...

  3. Delay-Tolerant Radio for Cooperative Groups of Small Spacecraft

    SBC: Blink Astro, LLC            Topic: Z8

    Delay/Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) is a communication routing protocol designed specifically for high-latency applications wherein relay nodes on a multi-hop network may appear and reappear at irregular intervals. Unlike more ubiquitous TCP/IP network communications protocols that depend on known and “always on” routing paths, DTN is well suited to space-to-space applications where ind ...

  4. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed. The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through crossed polariz ...

  5. Operation-Aware ISHM for Environmental Control and Life Support in Deep Space Habitants


    A life support systems’ reliability and survivability are critical to NASA especially in long-term space exploration missions. The Health Management of life support systems consists of several components among which power, water recovery, and biomass processing systems etc. which are of primary importance. Due to the crew’s critical dependence on such a complex system, the health management of ...

  6. HeldenSurface: A CAD Tool to Generate High-Quality Surfaces

    SBC: Helden Aerospace Corporation            Topic: A1

    One of the primary shortcomings identified during the NASA sponsored CFD Vision 2030 Study conducted during 2012-2014 was that the generation of meshes suitable for CFD simulations constitutes a principal bottleneck in the workflow process as it requires significant human intervention. Our solution to this problem is the development of HeldenSurface, which is a robust tool for automatially conver ...
