  1. Low Cost, Light Weight Materials for Mirrors


    During the phase I program Northwestern and APS, Inc., have manufactured several different materials systems that are lighter than Beryllium and stiffer than Aluminum. These high specific strength materials are also easily fabricated into larger shapes or even net shape processed. The mechanical (tensile and modulus) and thermal physical (CTE, thermal conductivity) property data for several syste ...

  2. Modular Autonomous C&DH Software with Built-In Simulation/Test

    SBC: ADVANCED SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NASA, the Department of Defense (DoD), and Commercial spacecraft programs have the desire to minimize program costs while continuing to ensure mission robustness and flexibility. The spacecraft system that is a cost driver throughout the program life cycle is the Command and Data Handling System (C&DH), along with the associated algorithms and software. Advanced Solutions Inc (ASI) plans to deve ...

  3. Wireless Data and Power Transfer on Small Spacecraft

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: S403

    Achieving low-cost space missions implies lowering all phases of mission development, including spacecraft design, assembly, integration and test. The concept of the wireless spacecraft bus is something most technical people are at least half familiar with - the half which includes wireless data transfer, something available on every computer laptop today. But wireless is not really wireless if th ...

  4. A Multi-Physics CFD Toolkit for Reentry Flows

    SBC: AEROSOFT INC            Topic: A206

    AeroSoft proposes to develop a full featured CFD toolkit for analysis of the aerothermal environment and its effect on space vehicles. In Phase I, AeroSoft proposes to implement multi-component ablation along with material response into AeroSoft's structured and unstructured CFD solver GASP. In Phase I, GASP's internal thermal solver will be augmented to include the effects of ablation. In Ph ...

  5. 3-D Wind and Turbulence Measurement System for UAV

    SBC: Aerotech Research            Topic: S108

    In situ wind and turbulence measurements play a key role in the support and validation of Earth science missions using spaced-based technology. NASA has been using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in support of these Earth science missions, but the current UAVs do not have sensor packages to make science quality measurements of parameters including three-dimensional wind, turbulence, temperature, ...

  6. Turbulence Impact Module for ATM Planning and Research

    SBC: Aerotech Research            Topic: A301

    Every day, turbulence has an adverse effect on aircraft operations and capacity of the NAS, costing the airline industry at least $100 million annually in delays, operational inefficiencies, and injuries. There is a need to research and develop traffic flow and ATM methods that mitigate the turbulence impact to NAS operations, but turbulence is poorly represented in current airspace simulation an ...

  7. Conformal Space Suit Antenna Development for Enhanced EVA Communications and Wearable Computer Applications

    SBC: Applied EM Inc.            Topic: O104

    As NASA prepares for future space missions and the return to the moon by 2020, astronauts will be required to spend more time exposed to the hazards of performing Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA). Providing and maintaining reliable communications and overall information transfer is imperative during EVA operations not only to relay progress during the task but also to monitor the health and abilit ...

  8. Innovative CO2 Analyzer Technology for the Eddy Covariance Flux Monitor

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build and evaluate NDIR Analyzers that can be used to observe Eddy Covariance Flux and Absolute Dry Mole Fraction of CO2 from stationary and airborne platforms for a great range of environments. Both open- and close-path analyzers are to be evaluated. Phase I succeeded in building a fast CO2 analyzer with 100 Hz modulation frequency and sensitivity within a factor of two of the targe ...

  9. SiC Avalanche Photodiodes and Arrays

    SBC: Aymont Technology, Inc.            Topic: S105

    Aymont Technology, Inc. (Aymont) will demonstrate the feasibility of SiC p-i-n avalanche photodiodes (APD) arrays. Aymont will demonstrate 4 x 4 arrays of 2 mm2 APDs for visible-blind high-sensitivity UV detection. These arrays will exhibit high gain (10^6), high quantum efficiency (peak < 50%), and high speed (). They will demonstrate scalability, allowing for larger arrays (20 x 20) in Phase ...
