  1. Integrated System Health Management for Flexible Exploration

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X603

    Long-duration robotic and manned space missions have a number of unique requirements for mission success. These include ultra-high reliability, safety, sustainability and affordability of launch vehicles and spacecraft. These requirements, in turn, are allocated among critical subsystems, such as engines, propellants, structures, software systems, thermal protection, power, avionics, life support, ...

  2. Software Tools for Fault Management Technologies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S605

    Fault Management (FM) is a key requirement for safety, efficient onboard and ground operations, maintenance, and repair. QSI's TEAMS Software suite is a leading facilitator diagnostic and FM modeling, and performing various FM-related functions. Through this effort, QSI proposes to introduce capabilities to TEAMS that would significantly Reduce diagnostic model development cost and time, Enha ...

  3. Advanced Green Micropropulsion System

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T201

    Systima in collaboration with the University of Washington will develop a high performance, advanced green monopropellant microthruster (0.1?1.0 N) for small- and micro-satellites. The microthruster utilizes a high energy density HAN-based monopropellant AF-M315E, and a novel injection system to maximize thruster performance. The propellant is non-toxic making it easy to store, integrate into mo ...

  4. Risk Engineering, Sciences, Computation, and Informed Decisions

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T1301

    Wrong decisions during the missions can lead to an unsafe condition or immediate failure, while correct decisions can help continue the missions even from faulty conditions. In view of the lessons learned from mishaps, i.e., failed space missions, it is imminent that reliability analysis and risk assessment are kept in sync with space system design as it evolves from the concept through preliminar ...

  5. Plug and Play Realtime Diagnosis for Ground Processing System Integration

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: H1001

    NASA's "Ground Systems Development and Operations Program" is moving towards transforming parts of the Kennedy Space Center from a historically government-only launch complex to a spaceport bustling with activities involving government and commercial vehicles alike. The success of this transformation drive largely depends on achieving the ability to process multiple types of vehicles, within ...

  6. Low Gravity Drug Stability Analyzer


    The overall goal of this proposed program (through Phase III) is to build a space-worthy Drug Stability Analyzer that can determine the extent of drug degradation. It will be able to monitor the drug active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and its degradation product concentrations as a function of time, as well as determine if a drug is suitable for use (likely based on the presence of 90% or mor ...

  7. Torrefaction Processing of Human Fecal Waste

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: H303

    New technology is needed to collect, stabilize, safen, recover useful materials, and store human fecal waste for long duration missions. The current SBIR Phase I proposal will examine an innovative torrefaction (mild pyrolysis) processing system that can be used to sterilize feces and produce a stable, free flowing powder than can be easily stored or recycled, while simultaneously recovering all o ...

  8. SWIFT-HPX- High Data Rate Ka-band Commications for Small Satellites

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H905

    Leveraging TUI's SWIFT software defined radio (SDR) architecture, we propose to develop a 100 Mbps downlink and intersatellite crosslink capability with ranging and timing synchronization capabilities to enable more sophisticated CubeSat and small satellite missions. This effort will focus on designing a Ka-band communications solution including a high-gain patch antenna array and Ka-band RF ...

  9. High Performance Plasma Channel Insulators for High Power Hall Thrusters

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S303

    NASA missions for planetary exploration require high power, long-life Hall thrusters. However, thruster power and lifetime are limited by the erosion of plasma channel walls. Current plasma channel insulator materials, such as BN or Borosil, have the required low secondary electron emission (SEE) but are susceptible to xenon plasma erosion. New plasma channel insulator materials with low SEE yi ...

  10. A Compact In Situ Sensor for Measurement of Absorption and Backscattering in Natural Waters

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: S109

    We propose to develop an active sensor for in situ measurement of the inherent optical properties (IOPs) absorption and backscattering at multiple wavelengths. Multi- or hyper-spectral absorption of particles and dissolved materials is routinely measured in the laboratory and in situ in order to characterize, for example, the quantities and types of phytoplankton based on concentrations of specifi ...
