  1. Controlled Rigidization Technology for Inflatable Spacecraft

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Large space-deployed structures such as synthetic aperture radars, radiometers, and solar arrays are receiving a great deal of interest by NASA in the Earth Sciences program. These large structures by necessity must be ultra-lightweight and low stored volume. Inflatable or self-deployable approaches that become rigid after they reach the correct shape appear to be a promising approach for fabricat ...

  2. Self-Deploying Foam Antenna Structures

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is an increasing need for large, reliable, and cost-effective inflatable space antennas for communications applications. This Phase I program will focus on the design and development of open-celled foams as structural elements in self-deploying antenna systems. Foams offer the following significant advantages over conventional materials for these applications: open cellular structure allowin ...

  3. Electron Beam Processable Polyimides for High-Performance Composite Applications

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Performance requirements for polymer matrix composites (PMCs) in aerospace and transportation applications are generally quite stringent. Among these requirements are excellent thermal stability, high strength and high toughness. Easy processing is also desirable. Electron-beam (e-beam) curing has the potential to significantly reduce the overall cost of manufacturing PMC parts for use in aerospac ...

  5. An Analysis Model Bus for Distributed, Collaborative Engineering Modeling and Si

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Next generation design software will support fully associative geometric and physics-based analysis models throughout the entire product life-cycle. Most current CAD systems directly support finite element systems, but use proprietary database formats that do not promote diverse tool use and may not exist throughout the entire product life-cycle. Model sharing in common practice has been limited t ...

  7. Reconfigurable Guidance for Energy Management of Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The flight envelope for X-34 ranges from subsonic to hypersonic with altitudes up to 50 miles. Designing a guidance law that performs across this broad flight envelope presents several challenges. Robustness to uncertain aerodynamics is of paramount importance because of the sparse amount of wind tunnel and flight test data that exists for reusable launch vehicles at hypersonic Mach numbers. The n ...

  8. Low-Cost Polymer-Derived Zirconium-Silicate CMC for Rocket Nozzle Applications

    SBC: Composite Factory, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA has identified a need to reduce weight and cost of cooled composite nozzle ramps. A lightweight actively cooled ceramic matrix composite (CMC) system would be lighter than metallic designs and would require significantly less cooling during re-entry. Composite Factory proposes a zirconium-silicate or Zr-Si-O glass CMC with integral ceramic tubes reinforced with a low cost discontinuous cerami ...

  9. SATSNet an Extranet for the Nation's Small Airports

    SBC: Dynamic Systems Integration, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A critical barrier for GA to serve as viable fast personal transportation is the lack of a uniform, yet open-growth, travel information infrastructure. Dynamic Systems Integration¿s (DSI) vision is to create an innovative small airport-based information system for the 21st century GA traveler - SATSNet will serve as a vital enabler for NASA's General Aviation Transportation Vision. DSI will use i ...
