  1. Fault Management Technologies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S505

    There has been a renewed push across NASA centers and programs to make Systems Engineering & Integration (SE&I) processes more efficient and results-oriented than the current cumbersome and expensive cross-checking processes using text documents, and transition to a repeatable and a cost-effective process of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). In parallel, Systems Health management (SHM), with ...

  2. Diagnosis-Driven Prognosis for Decision Making

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A104

    In Phase II, the QSI-Vanderbilt team seeks to develop a system-level diagnostics and prognostic process that incorporates a "sense and respond capability," which first uses error codes and discrete sensor values to correctly diagnose the system health including degradations and failures of sensors and components, and then invokes appropriate prognostics routines for the assessment of RUL and perfo ...

  3. Instrument for Measurement of Oceanic Particle Size Distribution from Submicron to Mesoplankton

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: S108

    Particle size distribution (PSD) is a fundamental environmental measurement, with diverse biogeochemical applications including carbon cycle science, ecosystem and fisheries modeling, and harmful algal bloom (HAB) detection/prediction. There is optimism that estimates of PSD will be available from ocean color measurements (such as NASA's upcoming PACE mission), and will be able to help constrain g ...

  4. High Temperature Fiberoptic Thermal Imaging System

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: A401

    A prototype high temperature, single optical fiber thermal imaging system will be developed, tested, and delivered to GRC. The components of the instrument will be specified in detail, designed, fabricated, and purchased where appropriate. The illumination and imaging system will be assembled and system tests will be performed. Given a set of calibration images produced by the diagnostic, the i ...

  5. Phased Array Technique for Low Signal-To-Noise Ratio Wind Tunnels

    SBC: OPTINAV INC            Topic: A302

    Noise measurement of aerospace vehicles is difficult and usually requires expensive, specialized facilities. With the proliferation of UAVs there is need for noise data, both for ISR and non-military vehicles. Wind tunnel testing is common and much less expensive. The innovation is a novel in-flow microphone array combined with the start of the art Functional Beamforming algorithm that makes it p ...

  6. 100-lbf Non-Toxic Storable Liquid Propulsion

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: H202

    NASA's Road Maps for both Launch and In Space Propulsion call for the development of non-toxic, monopropellant reaction control systems to replace the current toxic hydrazine based systems. The Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle capsule with twelve 160 pound force (lbf) hydrazine monopropellant thrusters and the Orion Service Module with eight 100lbf NTO/MMH auxiliary propulsion thrusters are obvio ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 more ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Thermodynamically Consistent Electrochemical Models for Accelerating Development and Qualification of Power Generation and Storage Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: Z101

    Industry and other government agencies are advancing battery, fuel cell, and electrolyzer technology to reduce costs and increase specific power. However, NASA's unique missions with extreme conditions and difficulty in replacing batteries require even greater specific power improvements in conjunction with long life and performance at extremely high or low temperatures. Predictive models, incor ...
