  1. 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 ...

  2. Electrochromic Thermal Stabilization of Large Deployable Structures

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

    Solar sails use a thin reflecting membrane to deflect sunlight, converting the momentum of solar photons striking the sail to a means of spacecraft propulsion. The trajectory of the sail-powered spacecraft may be controlled by through a mechanical arrangement or through the use of an electrochromic material that changes reflectivity or transmittance in response to the application of an electric po ...

  3. Reducing Symptomatology of Space Adaptation Syndrome through Perceptual Training

    SBC: RSK ASSESSMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The ?space adaptation syndrome? develops in conditions in which nauseogenic stimuli are present for a long period. The perceptual situation of an astronaut exposed to unusual gravitational-inertial forces has been compared to that found in experiments involving perceptual rearrangement, such as optically induced displacement, curvature, tilt, or right-left reversal. In both instances, the observer ...

  4. Real-time Onboard and Remote Vehicle Health Management

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I of this effort has proven key concepts of our proposed comprehensive health management solution: namely remote and shadow diagnosis over low-bandwidth network and prognosis based on statistical techniques. Our telediagnosis solution has been demonstrated to Honeywell and NASA-JSC, and is being considered for remote monitoring of the Space Station. It is also the centerpiece of Honeywel ...

  5. A Simple, Small, Low Power Instrument to Measure Aircraft Icing Severity

    SBC: Science Engineering Associates            Topic: N/A

    Aircraft icing severity depends on two key cloud parameters, liquid water content and droplet size. Proposed is a simple instrument using multiple hot wire elements to measure cloud droplet size (median volume diameter) and liquid water content.The unit utilizes three hot wire sensor elements each of a different geometry, all exposed to the same airflow. By virtue of their different sizes/shapes, ...

  6. Portable PEM Fuel Cell Using Low Cost Pseudo Catalyst Electrodes

    SBC: US NANOCORP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "DOD seeks compact and lightweight portable fuel cell systems for communication, computation, and sensors, with a 20W power requirement. US Nanocorp proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of exploiting a member electrode assembly ("MEA") using low costpseudo-catalyst electrodes for portable proton exchange membrane fuel cells ("PEMFCs"). An MEA in a conventional PEMFC stack uses a Nafion proton ...

  7. JP-8 Micro-reformer

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "PCI proposes into topic Area 2 to develop and demonstrate a JP-8 micro-reformer capable of delivering the hydrogen required for a 20 We Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) from a catalytic reactor which is expected to be ~1 in3 (size of 2 standard AA batteries)and weighing

    SBC: INTERFACE & CONTROL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High-speed, real-time diagnostic and advisory systems are part of ICS?s heritage. Unstructured and labor-intensive knowledge capture systems have been the downfall of many monitor and control systems. We believe that an adaptive learning system can greatly aid in the population and refinement of automated reasoning systems. Our proven, man-rated expert system must be populated with the fault monit ...

  9. Using Expert Knowledge to Augment Simulation-Based Operational Analysis of Space Transportation Conc

    SBC: Command and Control Technologies Corp.            Topic: N/A

    This research will investigate a new technique for analyzing operation characteristics of future space transportation systems using a variation of activity based cost modeling. The unique element of the new technique is its focus on simulation modeling to translate vehicle design parameters into a set of activities and a related process map in a domain (operations characteristics of future space v ...

  10. Development of Space Based Emergency Medical Procedures Using Simulation Technology

    SBC: Medical Education Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Manned space operations present severe dangers to crew health. Conversely, space operations present severe impediments to delivery of emergency medical care. In order to establish an effective space-based medical care capability, procedures that facilitate the execution of complex medical procedures by non-medical personnel in emergency situations and under difficult operational conditions must be ...
