  1. Antistatic Thermal Control Coatings

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

    Electrostatic discharge control is vital for the health of any spacecraft. Exposure to charged particles in a space enviroment can lead to large charge differences across the craft, that, if no mechanism for controlled discharge is present, can destroy mission critical equipment. The preferred way of ESD control is to use conducting thermal control coatings. These coatings combine the ability to r ...

  2. Self-Deploying Foam Antenna Structures

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

    Inflatable or self-deployable systems offer the only practical way to achieve space deployed antennas with low mass at large aperture. In this Phase I program, open-celled rigid polyurethane foams were developed for use in self-deploying antenna structures. Advantages of such a system relative to current systems include high volumetric efficiency of packing, inherent restoring force, low (or no) o ...

  3. Low Cost Engine Test Stand for 500 lb Thrust Class Engines

    SBC: AJT and Associates, Inc            Topic: N/A

    AJT proposes to develop a low-cost, engine test-stand system for small (500 pound) thrust engines using gaseous, liquid or cryogenic propellants. This test stand would incorporate automated propellant transfer and automated propellant line purge systems. The engines would be configured to a standard test-stand interface, greatly reducing the time required to install and remove various engines. Thi ...

  4. Marine Mammal Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: ANALYSIS DESIGN & DIAGNOSTICS INC            Topic: N/A

    "The United States Navy is using and/or experimenting with active, coherent and incoherent sources to detect and localize submarines operated throughout the world. As the U.S. Navy continues to develop and employ active sensors and moves into littoralareas occupied by higher densities of marine mammals, adverse environmental impacts are likely to occur. Recently, in a U.S. Department of Commerce ...

  5. Magnetohydrodynamic Stable Reference (MSTAR)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Platforms for scientific instruments increasingly require attitude knowledge and optical instrument pointing at sub-arcsecond accuracy. No low-cost commercial system exists to provide this level of accuracy for guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) and precision instrument pointing. ATA proposes to introduce a small inexpensive inertial attitude reference system based upon magnetohydrodynamic (M ...

  6. Nano Ceramic Sterilization Filter

    SBC: ARGONIDE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Filters don't exist that are capable of removing virus and bacteria at high enough flow rates to be practical either for space systems or for domestic consumption. In Phase 1 we demonstrated feasibility that our nano ceramic fiber filter could produce sterile water at high flow rates. In Phase 2 we propose to develop performance data on such filters that would provide NASA with the capability for ...

  7. Upper and Lower Bounds in Finite Element Analysis of Aerospace Structures

    SBC: Astra Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is intended to develop a new analysis for stresses and displacements in aerospace structures based on the combined conventional Displacement (Stiffness) Method and on a new formulation of the Force Method developed by the principal investigator. Since some of the elements used currently in the Displacement Method violate equations of stress equilibrium, an additional analysis ...

  8. Exploiting Evolutionary Algorithms for Improved Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    "The U.S. Army is conducting extensive research involving the development of innovative algorithms for detecting and classifying high-value military targets using LADAR sensors. Many of these designs employ a model-based approach in which targets,background, and target/background interactions are modeled. A central tenet of this approach is that the large number of target, sensor, and background ...

  9. Chemical Stimulation of Oil Wells Producing from Carbonate Reservoirs

    SBC: Correlations Company            Topic: N/A

    65017 Oil well formation damage is detrimental to the oil production rate and ultimate recovery from carbonate reservoirs that contain 3.7 billion barrels of proved domestic reserve. This project will develop an innovative well stimulation technique, based on laboratory measurements of wettability alteration coupled with artificial intelligence, to design well treatments. Phase I laborator ...

  10. Stabilization of Phased Focus Array Using Electrochromic Technology

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Future space-based radar systems (SBRS) are expected to be critical to defense intelligence and modern battlefield analysis. SBRS design concepts involve thermal control issues exacerbated by low thermal mass, high radiative losses, and pressure to meetdesign areal densities of 4 to 6 kg/m2. To address these issues Eclipse Energy Systems, Inc. has developed prototype designs for electrochromic de ...
