  1. Inflatable Spacecraft Using &quotRigidization On Command&quotTechnology

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1998 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. Self-Healing Inflatable, Rigidizable Shelter for the Lunar Environment

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X601

    Any manned missions to extraterrestrial locations will require shelter structures for a variety of purposes ranging from habitat usage to biomass production. Such shelters need to be constructed in such a way to minimize stowed volume and payload weight. The structures must also be very durable and have the ability to survive punctures without collapsing. Ways of increasing available crew-load ...

  3. Lunar Regolith Stabilization for Excavation

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X502

    During lunar exploration, regolith is both the major available resource and a substantial obstacle in establishing a long-term presence. The fine surface dust is highly abrasive and can both be a health hazard for the crew and the main contributor to equipment failure. Regolith is also the only material readily available to build protective shelters for the crew to prevent exposure to lethal dos ...

  4. Foamed Antenna Support for Very Large Apertures

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: O104

    Large aperture antennas are of interest to NASA for applications in establishing high-speed communication relays for interplanetary missions. Design goals include 20 meter apertures. In order to minimize mission costs at these large diameters, weight must be severely restricted. Adherent Technologies, Inc. (ATI) has developed two technologies for ultra-light space structures and antennas, the R ...

  5. Dust Mitigation for the Lunar Surface

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X502

    The lunar surface is to a large extent covered with a dust layer several meters thick. Known as lunar regolith, it poses a hazard in the form of dust clouds being generated by all forms of gas expansions in the high vacuum environment of the lunar surface. This is especially pronounced during spacecraft operations. Instruments placed on the moon by the Apollo mission showed marked degradation d ...

  6. Moisture Resistant Primer for Composite Bonded Repairs

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A101

    Aging and durability of aircraft in both the military and civilian sectors are becoming major issues as the existing fleet continues to age. Additionally, the increased use of composite structures in the civilian fleet, such as in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A380, make the understanding and/or improvement of composite durability, particularly durability of repairs, even more critical ...

  7. Foam-in-Place Contaminant Containment System

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S502

    Over the next few decades, NASA plans to launch a number of planetary probes to and return the samples to Earth for detailed investigation. Due to the rapid expanse of space exploration, a need has been identified for the proper handling of extraterrestrial samples. Not only must the sample return system maintain the physical integrity of the sample in sometimes rigorous conditions (e.g., rover ...

  8. Prediction of Launch Vehicle Ignition Overpressure and Liftoff Acoustic Environments

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1998 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Reliability-Based Multi-Disciplinary Optimization of Large Multi-Component Systems Using Interdigitation

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1998 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Variable Cell Blanket Sandwich Panel Technology
