  1. Bluetooth Wireless Wearable Modular Medical Instrumentation


    The proposed project will create a novel system for using medical instruments in a wireless network. A unique, highly innovative system architecture is proposed. This work is made possible by the new low-cost wireless networking technology called Bluetooth. Bluetooth makes it commercially feasible for low-cost portable devices to be connected in a true wireless network. This enabling technology wi ...

  2. Low-Cost, Electromagnetic Device for Natural-Laminar-Flow Airfoils in General Aviation Applications

    SBC: Cirrus Design            Topic: N/A

    Cirrus Design proposes the development of a low cost, electromagnetic-type deice system that is integrable with Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) airfoils, on General Aviation (GA) aircraft. To compete with alternate modes of travel like the interstate highway system and airlines, GA aircraft must provide transportation that is fast, economical, safe, and reliably usable in any weather. The operation of ...

  3. Low-Cost, Resin-Transfer-Molding Tooling and Manufacturing Systems

    SBC: Cirrus Design            Topic: N/A

    General aviation aircraft sales reached 18,000 new aircraft per year in the late 1970's before dropping off to what it is today. The need for personal aviation transportation is still prevalent, and small single engine aircraft that are produced using low cost manufacturing techniques can provide the performance and safety needed to make general aviation one of the best ways to travel, yet meet th ...

  4. Robotic Surrogate

    SBC: Ross-Hime Designs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA has requested a robotic surrogate to work autonomously or to work alongside astronauts, for tool retrieval, space station construction, satellite maintenance and interplanetary habitat preparation for astronaut base camps. Human sizing, flexibility and fault tolerance are key needs that must be addressed. Proposed is a ten-axis robotic surrogate that is both highly dexterous and scaled to hum ...

  5. GaN Bulk Growth and Epitaxy from Ca-Ga-N Solutions

    SBC: The IIIAN Company, LLC            Topic: O107

    The innovations proposed here are Ka-band (38 GHz) group III-nitride power FETs and the dislocation density reducing epitaxial growth methods (LPE) needed for their optimal performance and reliability.Ka-band power transistors with>60% Power Added Efficiency (PAE) are not commercially available. The primary limitations to their manufacture are lack of mature process technology at major GaN foun ...

  6. Bearing and Seal-free Pump for Spacecraft Thermal Control


    ABI's innovation is a novel centrifugal pump, which will not have bearings, shaft, and seals. The impeller in this pump would rotate in a stable position in the center of the pump housing. The balance of all hydodynamic forces acting on impeller achieves stability. This pump will have high reliability, durability, and low cost in reduced mass, power and volume configuration, which are required in ...

  7. Low Power High Speed Digital Signal Isolator


    Highly-sensitive linear spin-valve sensors combined with NVE's patented GMR isolator technology will be used to develop miniature, low power, high speed, radiation-hard, digital isolator devices for space and other commercial applications. The proposed linear mode spin-valve digital isolators will overcome the shortcomings of the present latching mode spin-valve digital isolators. The devices can ...

  8. High-Frequency, Low-Noise Nitride-Based Power Transistors Grown on Bulk III-N

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: E204

    Electronics circuits that can function in very high temperatures (> 450?C) are needed for a number of applications including automotive and turbine engine control, industrial high-temperature processing, geothermal and deep-well oil drilling, satellite power management systems, and future planetary missions to Venus and Mercury. The key electronic components for these applications include 1) an i ...

  9. Spin-Dependent-Tunneling Sensors for Non-Destructive Evaluation


    The proposed innovation is a two-axis spin-dependent-tunneling (SDT) sensor which detects small magnetic signals for use in non-destructive evaluation (NDE) of defects in metallic materials and structures. The proposed SDT sensor offers several advantages for NDE eddy current detection methods: (1) High sensitivity. The ability to resolve fields of 10 nOe/root Hz or better, yet operate at room tem ...

  10. System-Level Autonomy Trust Enabler (SLATE)


    This SBIR addresses the problem that current V&V technology provides component guarantees, but does not do well on system properties. Human acceptance of autonomy hinges on trusting system-level behavior. The goal is to develop technology to verify system properties for high-level autonomous control of complex systems operating in rich and unpredictable environments. The System-Level Autonomy Tru ...
