  1. Fast, Parallel, High-Quality Voronoi Mesh Generator

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A1

    Cascade Technologies has developed a massively parallel Voronoi-based mesh generation tool called ``Stitch#39;#39;. Given a water-tight surface triangulation of arbitrary complexity and a set of generating points (effectively cell centers), Stitch can efficiently compute the 3D clipped Voronoi diagram and output a mesh. This approach was demonstrated to be fast and scalable, as well as robust to c ...

  2. Nano Enhanced 4000 °F CMC for Multiple Use Applications

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: H5

    NASA future applications require non- incremental advances in high temperature materials.nbsp; Specifically, advanced future propulsion systems require significant improvement in the upper temperature operating limit of composite materials.nbsp;Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites exhibit unique properties on increasing strength with temperature but suffer from oxidation at temperatures above 550 C.nbsp ...

  3. Tapered Amplifiers for Cold-Atom Optical Systems (TACOS)

    SBC: AOSense, Inc.            Topic: S1

    AOSense proposes to develop compact laser amplifier modules for cold-atom optical systems. The device would deliver gt; 1 W of power in optical fiber at 852 nm when paired with an appropriate narrow-linewidth master laser oscillator. A key feature is the integration of a tapered amplifier with AOSense-proprietary compact, high transmission optical isolators, yielding a fiber-in, fiber-out package ...

  4. Validation of UAM Dynamics Modeling Tool Suite Using Scaled Modular Aerial Research Testbed

    SBC: Empirical Systems Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: A1

    In Phase I, a comprehensive tool suite for the quantitative assessment of UAM aircraft ride qualitieswith respect to passenger comfort. As a result of this effort the validation of the tool suite wasattempted however due to the lack of publicly available validation datasets for the dynamic handlingqualities of UAM aircraft this effort proved difficult. The proposed Phase II work will attempt tocom ...

  5. PermiAM: Engineered Porosity In-Situ with Fully Dense AM Structure

    SBC: Masten Space Systems, Inc            Topic: Z9

    This work answers the questions and needs of Focus Area 21 Subtopic Z9.01 for small launch vehicle technologies by providing affordable launch architecture, as propulsion systems are the highest cost subsystem for rocket development and PermiAM will enable a large savings for main propulsion system engine development. PermiAM will enable increased design simplicity for AM injectors and reduced dev ...

  6. High-Power THz Quantum-Cascade VECSEL based Local Oscillator

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: S1

    NASA and NASA funded missions/instruments such as Aura/MLS (Microwave Limb Sounder), SOFIA/upGREAT and STO/STO-2 have demonstrated the need for local oscillator (LO) sources between 30 and 300 um (1 and 10 THz). For observations gt;2 THz, technologically mature microwave sources typically have microwatt power levels which are insufficient to act as LOs for a multi-element heterodyne receiver.LongW ...

  7. High-Impulse, Scalable, Metal Plasma Thruster for Cubesat Missions

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: Z8

    The innovation in this SBIR project is the maturation of AASCrsquo;s TRL-4 Metal Plasma Thruster into a TRL-9 system that is fully flight qualified by a launch into space (June 2020), followed by commercial sales of multiple thruster systems to NASA and other satellite makers. This SBIR [Z8.01 Small Spacecraft Propulsion Systems]nbsp;points out that although there are currently many technologies f ...

  8. Planetary In-Situ X-Ray Imager for Core Samples

    SBC: eXaminArt, LLC            Topic: S1

    We propose to develop an in-situ high-resolution X-ray computer tomography (microCT) instrument to analyze rock core samples on the surface of a planet or planetesimal. The instrument will also double as an X-ray spectrometer to map the chemical composition of the surface of the rock core when its surface is not shielded by an opaque container. The instrument will rely on a coring drill to collect ...

  9. Integrated Model-Based Fault-management System Design (IMFSD)

    SBC: ASCA, INC.            Topic: S5

    ASCA is developing an Integrated Model-based Fault-management System Design (IMFSD) workstation for current-generation and future high-autonomy space systems. The resulting product will integrate and document in one framework Fault Management (FM) design processes, models and products. The IMFSD covers FM requirements definition, design specification, analysis, validation-and-verification (Vamp;V) ...

  10. Digital Pixel Readout Integrated Circuit for High Dynamic Range Infrared Imaging Applications

    SBC: Senseeker Engineering Inc            Topic: S1

    This proposal outlines a digital pixel readout integrated circuit (DPROIC) to achieve extremely high dynamic range, high speed and elegant functionality for infrared image focal plane arrays. This digital pixel readout will be a complete camera-on-chip architecture when combined with single or dual polarity dual band detectors in a hybrid fashion. It will have a wide operating temperature range to ...
