  1. Enhanced Real Time Distributed Strain and Temperature Monitoring for Rocket Ground Testing

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: T13

    IFOS proposes an innovative Brillouin sensing system ndash; B*Sensetrade; ndash; for enhanced, distributed strain and temperature measurements in harsh environments. Brillouin sensing provides both temperature and strain measurement along the entire length of fiber, allowing the entire fiber to act as a sensor. B*Sensetrade; will enable identification of defects, such as fatigue cracking or excess ...

  7. A Modular In-Situ Curing Apparatus for Thermoset Resin Mixtures Applied as Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Future human extraterrestrial missions will require export and landing of countless payloads on the lunar and Martian surfaces. Such a quantity and rate of payload delivery will require cost-effective and rapid manufacturing of many large Thermal Protection Systems (TPS). IOS proposes to develop a modular system for in-situ bonding and curing of thermoset resin to the spacecraft structure to facil ...

  9. Interactive Tool for Modeling Multiple Solar Eruptions

    SBC: PREDICTIVE SCIENCE INCORPORATED            Topic: S5

    Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are huge explosions that propel plasma and magnetic field away from the Sun and are the primary cause of major geomagnetic storms. Predicting in advance whether observed CMEs will hit the Earth and carry geo-effective magnetic fields is a long-term priority for the CCMC, located at NASA GSFC, as well as other groups within and outside of NASA. Such predictions are ext ...
