  2. In-Situ Electrospray Capture of Organic Bearing Particulates from Comets and Celestial Bodies

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: S1

    NASA has need for technologies that can enable sampling from asteroids and from depth in a comet nucleus, improved in-situ analysis of comets. It has been identified that there is also a requirement for improved dust environment measurements amp; particle analysis, small body resource identification, and/or quantification of potential small body resources (e.g., oxygen, water and other volatiles, ...

  3. Innovative, Rapidly Regenerable, Structured Trace-Contaminant Sorbents Fabricated Using 3D Printing

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: H4

    The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space requires regenerable life support systems. This proposal addresses the fabrication of structured (monolithic), carbon-based trace-contaminant (TC) sorbents for the space suit used in Extravehicular Activities (EVAs). The proposed innovations are: (1) the use of thin-walled, structured carbon TC sorbents fabricated u ...

  4. Post-Process Optimizing of Additive-Manufactured Nickel-Based Superalloys

    SBC: Rem Chemicals, Inc.            Topic: Z3

    REM has, in Phase 1, proven concept and fully developed a combinatory surface finishing process optimizing Chemical Milling and Chemically Accelerated Vibratory Finishing capable of uniformly removing .020rdquo; in less than 24 hours from the surface of Additively Manufactured (AM) Inconel-625 components, fabricated by selective laser sintering and by powder blown direct energy deposition. The as- ...

  5. In-Situ Electrospray Capture of Organic Bearing Particulates from Alien Water Fountains

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: S4

    NASA has need for technologies that can enable sampling from water jets, such as those observed emanating from the moon Enceladus and from the moon Europa. We propose to leverage past observations of the ability of electrospray ionization to capture and concentrate polar or polarizable trace species without damage, and combine that knowledge with recent discoveries in developing a hypervelocity ic ...

  6. Model-Based Design Assessment and FM Visualization Technologies in TEAMS

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    Qualtech Systems, Inc. (QSI), in collaboration with Dr. Stephen B. Johnson, President of Dependable System Technologies, LLC (DST), plan to develop techniques and the concomitant software modules for enabling modeling and visualization in QSIrsquo;s TEAMSreg; Toolset to represent the entire FM design as part of a system design. The main objective of the proposed effort is to have TEAMSreg; complet ...

  7. Hydrogen-Based Energy Conservation System

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: T10

    The key objective of the Phase II Sequential project is to develop and demonstrate a fully-autonomous,nbsp;large-scale hydrogen recovery and compression system that can be used as a modular building block to reclaim and compress a substantial portion of SSCrsquo;s hydrogen. Specific goals for the Phase II Sequential program effort are:Improve in-cell and stack water management, along with flow dis ...

  8. Optimization of the Manufacturing Parameters for the Assembly of Protein-Based Retinal Implants in Microgravity

    SBC: LAMBDAVISION, INC.            Topic: H8

    LambdaVision developed a protein-based retinal implant to restore vision to the millions of people who are blinded by retinal degenerative diseases, including retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration. Preclinical evaluation of the technology, including ex vivo extracellular recording experiments and in vivo surgical development, demonstrated that we are able to reproducibly stimul ...

  9. Information Hedging from Sensing to Cognition to ensure Coherent Decision Making

    SBC: nodein            Topic: A2

    Maintaining consistent information flow between abstraction layers, from sensing to cognition, to ensure consistent decision-making is difficult. We are proposing an entirely new data structure, based on hypergraphs, to solve this problem. These hypergraph data structures will be developed in a domain specific language known as NodeLab and serve as a unified knowledge representation that can accep ...

  10. Model Based Data Integration and Fault Management (FM) Architecture Design Trade Studies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    NASA uses a variety of tools to conduct its FM activities. However, these tools are varied and disjoint, and require manual intervention to transfer data from the output of one tool to the input of another. This process is tedious, error-prone and scales poorly for large, complex systems. In addition, these tools are often ldquo;silorsquo;edrdquo; to the singular functionality for which they were ...
