  1. Low Gravity Drug Stability Analyzer

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: H1205

    The goal of this proposed program through Phase III is to build a space-worthy Drug Stability Analyzer that can determine the extent of drug degradation. It will be able to monitor the drug active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and its degradation product concentrations as a function of time, as well as determine if a drug is suitable for use. This will be accomplished by designing and building ...

  2. Fault Management Technologies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S505

    Given that SysML is becoming a standard for model-based systems engineering and Integration (SE&I), system health management (SHM)-related models will either be done in SysML, or be done outside of SysML but enabled by conversion, mapping, and traceability of information across SysML and SHM models. Given that current implementations of SysML are not particularly useful to perform analyses, and th ...

  3. Diagnosis-Driven Prognosis for Decision Making

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A104

    One cannot build a system-level Prognosis and Health Management (PHM) solution by cobbling together a bunch of existing prognostic techniques; it will have a very high rate of false-positive indications. On the other hand, if a system-level health management solution could identify the individual degradations and indictors associated with those degradations, and thereby decouple the problem into s ...

  4. High Performance Plasma Channel Insulators for High Power Hall Thrusters

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S303

    NASA missions for planetary exploration require high power, long-life Hall thrusters. However, thruster power and lifetime are limited by the erosion of plasma channel walls. Current plasma channel insulators, BN or Borosil, have the required low secondary electron emission (SEE) but are susceptible to xenon plasma erosion. AlN has exceptionally high plasma erosion resistance but suffers from hig ...

  5. Non-Catalytic Ignition System for High Performance Advanced Monopropellant Thrusters

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S302

    Systima Technologies, Inc. is developing a non-catalytic ignition technology for advanced green ionic salt monopropellants such as HAN-based monopropellant AF-M315E. Green (non-hazardous, low toxicity) monopropellants such as AF-M315E offer significant advantages in performance and reduced handling infrastructure for vehicles and payloads compared to traditional hydrazine systems. Systima's inno ...

  6. Cavitation Peening of Aerospace Bearings

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A307

    High-value bearings are a critical part of the safety, reliability, cost and performance of modern aircraft. A typical passenger jet will have 100 to 175 high-valve bearings costing from $2,500 to $50,000 each for a total aircraft cost of $300,000 to $600,000. All gas turbine engine bearings are inspected at overhaul and typically 30-40% of there are rejected. For each engine overhaul, bearing re ...

  7. The Compact Hyperspectral Aberration-Corrected Platform (CHAP), an Instrument for Microspacecraft.

    SBC: Planetary Resources Development Corporation            Topic: S106

    In-situ analysis of solar system bodies plays a crucial role in understanding the evolution of our planet, setting the stage for life's origins. As has been demonstrated by several NASA interplanetary missions, there is no replacement for in-situ observations, like spectral imaging, that prove critical for understanding the context of solar system bodies. There is, however, a conflict between mo ...

  8. Integrated Propulsion and Primary Structure Module for Small Satellite and CubeSat Applications

    SBC: Planetary Resources Development Corporation            Topic: S302

    Over the last decade, the CubeSat platform has emerged as a viable alternative for both innovative technology development and scientific investigation. However, to fully realize the platform's potential, propulsion capability is required. For low-cost spacecraft developers, this capability remains among the most resource intensive to successfully implement. Planetary Resources Development Corporat ...

  9. Morphing Wing Design with an Innovative Three-Dimensional Warping Actuation

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: A301

    Advanced wing configurations where traditional control surfaces are replaced by dynamically controlled distribution of wing twist and/or camber can provide significant benefits to aircraft performance, such as reduced vibration and noise, increased fuel efficiency. Elimination of traditional control surfaces such as flaps can lead to smoother wing surfaces which are especially important in reducin ...

  10. Extreme Environment Ceramic-To-Metal Seal

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: S404

    The proposed Phase 1 program will demonstrate the feasibility of large ceramic to metal joints/seals that can tolerate extreme environments. The immediate application of the work is bonded sapphire viewports for a Venus probe. TvU's commercial viewport products have demonstrated that the pressure and temperature constraints of the surface of Venus will be met, while the use of materials appropri ...
