  2. Manufacturing Advanced Channel Wall Rocket Liners

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: H202

    Liquid rocket developers have identified advanced engine concepts that are not feasible due to manufacture due to limitations in currently available technologies. Specifically, engine developers are in need of a manufacturing technology that is capable of generating cooling channels in liquid rocket nozzles and combustion chambers at low cost, while supporting increasingly complex designs (see a ...

  3. Fault Management Technologies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S505

    There has been a renewed push across NASA centers and programs to make Systems Engineering & Integration (SE&I) processes more efficient and results-oriented than the current cumbersome and expensive cross-checking processes using text documents, and transition to a repeatable and a cost-effective process of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). In parallel, Systems Health management (SHM), with ...

  4. High Temperature Fiberoptic Thermal Imaging System

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: A401

    A prototype high temperature, single optical fiber thermal imaging system will be developed, tested, and delivered to GRC. The components of the instrument will be specified in detail, designed, fabricated, and purchased where appropriate. The illumination and imaging system will be assembled and system tests will be performed. Given a set of calibration images produced by the diagnostic, the i ...

  5. Diagnosis-Driven Prognosis for Decision Making

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A104

    In Phase II, the QSI-Vanderbilt team seeks to develop a system-level diagnostics and prognostic process that incorporates a "sense and respond capability," which first uses error codes and discrete sensor values to correctly diagnose the system health including degradations and failures of sensors and components, and then invokes appropriate prognostics routines for the assessment of RUL and perfo ...

  6. The Compact Hyperspectral Aberration-Corrected Platform (CHAP), an Instrument for Microspacecraft.

    SBC: Planetary Resources Development Corporation            Topic: S106

    In-situ analysis of solar system bodies plays a crucial role in understanding the evolution of our planet, setting the stage for life's origins. As has been demonstrated by several NASA interplanetary missions, there is no replacement for in-situ observations, like spectral imaging, that prove critical for understanding the context of solar system bodies. There is, however, a conflict between more ...

  7. Integrated Propulsion and Primary Structure Module for Small Satellite and CubeSat Applications

    SBC: Planetary Resources Development Corporation            Topic: S302

    Over the last decade, the CubeSat platform has emerged as a viable alternative for both innovative technology development and scientific investigation. However, to fully realize the platform's potential, propulsion capability is required. For low-cost spacecraft developers, this capability remains among the most resource intensive to successfully implement. Planetary Resources Development Corporat ...

  8. Highly Efficient, Solid State Hydrogen Purification for Resource Recovery

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: H302

    Long duration manned space exploration requires further closure of the oxygen loop of the life support system than is currently realized aboard the International Space Station. In order to further close the oxygen loop, NASA has been developing an advanced Plasma Pyrolysis (PPA) technology that reduces the waste methane to higher order hydrocarbons in order to better utilize the hydrogen for oxyge ...

  9. Cavitation Peening of Aerospace Bearings

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A307

    High-value bearings are a critical part of the safety, reliability, cost and performance of modern aircraft. A typical passenger jet will have 100 to 175 high-valve bearings costing from $2,500 to $50,000 each for a total aircraft cost of $300,000 to $600,000. All gas turbine engine bearings are inspected at overhaul and typically 30-40% of there are rejected. For each engine overhaul, bearing re ...

  10. High Pressure Oxygen Generation for Future Exploration Missions

    SBC: Proton Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: H302

    The proposed innovation is the development of a cathode feed electrolysis cell stack capable of generating 3600 psi oxygen at a relevant scale for future exploration missions. This innovation is relevant to NASA's need for compact, quiet, efficient, and long-lived sources of pressurized oxygen for atmosphere revitalization (AR) and EVA oxygen storage recharge. Present AR equipment aboard Interna ...
