  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. Neuromorphic Processors for Next Generation Systems

    SBC: Bascom Hunter Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H9

    In the latter half of the 20th century, microprocessors faithfully adhered to Moore’s law, the well-known formulation of exponentially improving performance. As Gordon Moore originally predicted in 1965, the density of transistors, clock speed, and power efficiency in microprocessors doubled approximately every 18 months for most of the past 60 years. Yet this trend began to languish over the la ...

  3. Development of Fiber Reinforced Composite Feedstock for In-Space Manufacturing of High Strength Parts

    SBC: GeoComposites, LLC            Topic: H7

    GeoComposites, LLC, aims to develop the next generation of high performance fiber reinforced composite feedstock for in-space manufacturing of high strength parts via fused deposition modeling (FDM). Since plastics are inherently low in strength, additive manufactured plastic currently cannot compete with metallic parts. Failed parts on the International Space Station (ISS) and the genuine need fo ...

  4. Balanced Floating Piston Valve for Ultra-High Pressure, High-Volume Liquid and Gaseous Flow Control

    SBC: C-Suite Services, LLC            Topic: H10

    C-Suite Services, LLC (C-Suite) will produce at least one manufacture-ready, full-scale design for the licensed technology of the Balanced Floating Piston Valve. This design is intended as a “drop-in” replacement for an existing valve used in rocket engine component testing. The operating environment, pressures to 15,000 psi and flow rates of 1,000 lbm/sec of Gaseous Nitrogen, have proved prob ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Adaptive Mapping of the Gulf Dead Zone with AutonomousSurface Vehicles

    SBC: Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV), LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Gliders alone are incapable of monitoring the shallower regions of the hypoxic zone under conditions when the density gradient is strong, therefore surface vehicles are required to autonomously collect a suite of oceanographic observations from surface waters and profile this portion of the hypoxic zone. Autonomous Surface Vehicles, LLC (ASV, LLC) is partnering with Integral Co ...
