  1. Scalable and Distributed Inertial Navigation Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: T4

    Current state of the art inertial measurement units (IMUs) co-locate a set of accelerometers and gyroscopes into a single package. CU Aerospace (CUA), in partnership with the University of Illinois, propose the continued development of a scalable and distributed IMU (DSIMU) for space robotics and CubeSat applications. The user can deliberately choose a number of inertial sensors beyond the minimal ...

  2. Wireless Networked Cryogenic and Minimum Pressure Sensors

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T13

    During the NASA program, we will transition the semiconductor nanomembrane self-calibrating cryogenic and minimum pressure sensors from their current concept and prototype TRL 4-5 demonstration stage, to near-term instrumentation products of use to NASArsquo;s propulsion system facilities, other NASA instrumentation programs, academic researchers and industrial technologists. NanoSonic will again ...

  3. Highly Integrateable AI Modules for Planning, Scheduling, Characterization, and Diagnosis

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: T3

    We will extend our previous work to create artificial intelligence (AI) Reasoning Modules for planning, scheduling, characterization, machine learning, and fault detection/diagnosis/reconfiguration for spacecraft and their subsystems, each able to operate in standalone fashion or be easily integrated with one another to execute in a variety of computational environments, including in highly distri ...

  4. Advanced Hot Reservoir Variable Conductance Heat Pipes for Planetary Landers

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T9

    NASArsquo;s plans to further expand human and robotic presence in space and planetary surface automatically involve significant thermal challenges. A hot reservoir variable conductance heat pipe (VCHP) that can provide much tighter passive thermal control capability is an ideal thermal management device for future planetary landers and rovers. Based on previous ISS test results, advanced fluid man ...

  5. Novel Aeroservoelastic Scaled Model Design, Fabrication, and Testing

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T15

    In Phase I we demonstrated the feasibility of a novel aeroservoelastic design approach for scaled model design, and demonstrated fabrication of the resulting designs as a ground test article.nbsp; The test article from Phase I successfully replicated the scaled structural dynamic behavior, and demonstrated the integration of an instrumentation backbone based on PCB technology which allows integrat ...

  6. Properties Investigation of High-MON Oxidizers and MMH Blends for Use in Deep Space Exploration

    SBC: Frontier Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T9

    The REFPROP program developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a widely-used database for industrial fluid properties, including propellants used for chemical rocket propulsion.nbsp; For deep space applications, low-temperature propellants are of particular interest but accurate fluid property data was scarce or unavailable to the industry.nbsp; Recently, NASA MSFC h ...

  7. Co-Localization for Planetary Rover Teams

    SBC: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.            Topic: T4

    nbsp;This project is developing, testing, and integrating hardware systems and software techniques to enable the co-localization of teams of rovers, specifically targeting small-scale, low size, weight, and power rovers. Utilizing inertial measurement units (IMU), ultra-wideband (UWB) ranging radio, and a model-based approach to relative visual range, bearing, and pose estimation, each rover in a ...

  9. Aperiodic Lattice Design Optimization for Multi-Functional Lightweight Aerospace Structures

    SBC: Phoenix Analysis and Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T3

    The primary innovation proposed is the development of a lattice design tool that combines concepts from topology and parameter optimization to generate lattice materials that are aperiodic in nature and do not require a priori definition of cell size. With Additive Manufacturing, we can now specify detail to a degree previously not possible. In the context of cellular materials, however, it is not ...

  10. Smallsat Swarm Sparse Aperture SAR for Recon and Surveillance (SSSASAfRaS)

    SBC: VisSidus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T4

    The goal of Phase II work is to further advance the TRL of the swarm coordination and control algorithms from the current estimated TRL 3 to a TRL 4-5. The technical objectives proposed for Phase II are divided into two broad categories that support the goal. One category includes continuation and refinement of the work performed in Phase I and the other category includes new work, some of which h ...
