  1. Automation of Health Management, Troubleshooting and Recovery in Lunar Outpost

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X101

    The overall Phase-II goal is to develop the technologies and tools that can aid the automation of operation by providing intelligent decision support in situations when a mission plan needs alteration due to an event(s). The effort targets not only developing the algorithms, but also to implement them on QSI's TEAMS platform; this will transition the technologies into a useful tool for the A4 ...

  2. Low Mass Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster with Integrated PPU

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: S304

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) is a revolutionary electric propulsion thruster and power processing (PPU) system that will allow a dramatic decrease in system mass and increase in thrust efficiency over traditional 500-3000 W propulsion systems. The high specific power (>700 W/kg) and high efficiency of EMPT will enable a wide range of deep space missions such as Neptune, Pluto an ...

  3. Novel Catalytic Reactor for CO2 Reduction via Sabatier Process

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: X201

    A novel short contact time Microlith Sabatier reactor system for CO2 reduction offers a significant advance in support of manned spaceflight. Compared to current and prospective alternatives (including microchannels), the reactor will be much smaller and lighter, more energy and resource efficient, and more durable. In the spacecraft cabin atmosphere revitalization system (ARS), the utilization o ...

  4. Aeroelastic/Aeroservoelastic Uncertainty and Reliability of Advanced Aerospace Vehicles in Flight and Ground Operations

    SBC: SDI Engineering Inc            Topic: T201

    ASSURE - Aeroelastic / Aeroservoelastic (AE/ASE) Uncertainty and Reliability Engineering capability - is a set of probabilistic computer programs for isolating uncertainties in simulation, manufacturing, test, measurement, and test to analysis correlation affecting the AE/ASE characteristics of advanced flight vehicles in flight and on the ground, and for studying the effects of such uncertainties ...

  5. Hydrogen Recovery System

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: T1001

    Rocket test operations at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC) result in substantial quantities of hydrogen gas that is flared from the facility and helium gas that is vented. One way to save on the cost of test operations is to recover these gases using an electrochemical system. This Hydrogen Recovery System (HRS) selectively removes hydrogen from the mixed stream, leaving behind high-value helium. ...

  6. Probabilistic Remaining Useful Life Prediction of Composite Aircraft Components

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: A112

    A composite fatigue damage assessment and risk informed prognosis toolkit will be developed by enhancing and integrating existing solution modules within a probabilistic analysis framework. This tool will for the first time be able to address concurrently both microcracking induced stiffness degradation and cyclic loading induced delamination crack growth without remeshing. A physics-based determi ...

  7. Scalable, Lightweight, Low-Cost Aero/Electrodynamic Drag Deorbit Module

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: S401

    The proposed effort will develop the "Terminator Tape Deorbit Module", a lightweight, low-cost, scalable de-orbit module that will utilize both aerodynamic drag enhancement and electrodynamic drag to rapidly remove small satellites from LEO altitudes, enabling compliance with orbital lifetime restrictions such as NSS 1740.14 and DoD Instruction 3100.12, Sec. 6.4. Unlike de-orbit devices ...

  8. PowerCube: Integrated Power, Propulsion, and Pointing for CubeSats

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: S303

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. proposes to develop the PowerCube, an integrated power, propulsion, and pointing solution for CubeSats. The PowerCube combines three innovative components: a high-power deployable solar array able to provide up to 100W peak power to the CubeSat, a regenerative fuel cell energy storage system that doubles as a gH2/gO2 thruster, and a 'carpal joint' gimbal that enab ...

  9. Laser Stethoscope for Use in Noisy Spacecraft Environments

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: X1201

    Auscultation, or listening to internal sounds made by the body of a patient, is an important tool in medical diagnostics. Heart, lung, intestine, and circulatory function can be assessed through careful listening. There are numerous situations, however, where the faint sounds collected using an ordinary stethoscope are overwhelmed by ambient noise. Such is the case in spacecraft, where room is ...

    SBIR Phase I 2011 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Automation for Vehicle and Crew Operations

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X601

    Modern space systems such as the International Space Station (ISS) and the proposed Constellation vehicles and habitats are complex entities with hundreds of thousands of individual telemetry items. Monitoring the health of these systems, troubleshooting their faults, developing maintenance plan and schedule, and aiding to restore system functionality are key tasks that flight controllers must per ...
