  1. Architecture Framework for Fault Management Assessment and Design (AFFMAD)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: S505

    Architecture Framework for Fault Management Assessment And Design(AFFMAD) provides Fault Management (FM) trade space exploration and rigorous performance constraint checking for FM strategies of complex cyber-physical systems. AFFMAD will assist early evaluation of FM strategies and improve the efficiency of implementing and testing those strategies much earlier in the design process than today. W ...

  2. Arm-Deployed Rotary-Percussive Coring Drill

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S503

    The continued development of automated sample acquisition and handling tools is of critical importance to future robotic missions on Mars, the Moon, Venus, and other planetary bodies. In response to the need for a compact, low mass, low power, and low weight-on-bit coring device, Honeybee Robotics proposes to continue development of an arm-deployed and arm-stabilized rotary-percussive coring tool. ...

  3. ATHENA- Appraisal of Task Health and Effort through Non-Intrusive Assessments

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: H1202

    Based on a series of prior and ongoing research projects funded by NASA and the US Air Force (US AF), we have demonstrated viable methods to achieve accurate workload measures (70-100% accuracy) for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) work domain using linguistics and keystroke dynamics. We believe these methods can be reconfigured to use for spaceflight operations. These completely unobtrusive mea ...

  4. Composite Structure Monitoring using Direct Write Sensors

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: X501

    This NASA SBIR Phase II project seeks to develop and demonstrate a suite of sensor products to monitor the health of composite structures. Sensors will be made using the Company¡¦s Direct Write process based on Mesoplasma?§ deposition technology. This allows a wide variety of sensor materials and architectures to be deposited onto conformal components made from polymer composite, metallic, an ...

  5. Concurrent identification of Natural Antibiotics-Producing Gene Clusters and Culture Conditions

    SBC: Carrera Bioscience Inc.            Topic: CBD152004

    Modern metagenomics studies on diverse microbiomes revealed immense repertoires of potential natural products/antibiotics to be tapped into.However, identifying such secondary metabolites (SMs) directly from a complex microbiome remains rarely successful due to two major technicalchallenges: i) difficulty in dissecting complex microbiome samples and massive metagenomics data, and ii) difficulty in ...

  6. Continuous Integrated Invariant Inference

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: A114

    The proposed project will develop a new technique for invariant inference and embed this and other current invariant inference and checking techniques in an easy-to-use tool. The result will enhance an engineer's ability to use formal methodsÂ? generating, editing, reviewing, proving and testing invariants Â? and improve productivity in verification and validation of safety and correctness ...

  7. Development of a Hermetically Sealed Canister for Sample Return Missions

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S405

    The goal of the Phase I is to perform breadboarding and testing of the promising sealing techniques as well as perform a system level study to determine implementation challenges within actual mission architectures. The tests will be conducted on clean and 'dirty' seals. The results of the Phase I will be one or more options for hermetic sealing. During some approaches (Shape memory Alloy and braz ...

  8. DIHeDRAL: Downhole Regolith Interrogation with Helium-Assisted Drill and LIBS

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S111

    Future landed robotic missions to the lunar poles will seek to characterize the properties of subsurface regolith. Current instruments for such in-situ analysis, however, require that geological samples be brought to the surface by a sample acquisition tool and subsequently processed and presented to the analyzer. This model has significant limitations with regard to science yield: evaporation of ...

  9. Distributed Engine Control Empirical/Analytical Verification Tools

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: A207

    In this Phase I project, Impact Technologies, in collaboration with Prof. R.K. Yedavalli, propose a novel verification environment for eventual rapid certification of distributed engine control systems (DCS). Our approach is focused on providing a set of tools to the government and industry that will allow faster certification of the control system as new high-temperature components and control l ...

  10. Extreme Temperature Gearhead

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S502

    In response to the need for actuators that can operate in the harsh Venusian environment for extended periods of time, Honeybee Robotics conducted extensive research and testing to resolve the tall poles in developing an extreme temperature gear. During the Phase I effort, multiple gear material and lubrication candidates were tested under load in Venus-like conditions (486<SUP>o</SUP> ...
