Low-Cost, Scalable, Hybrid Launch Propulsion TechnologySBC: Physical Sciences Inc. Topic: T101
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration Purdue University, proposes to develop a novel launch propulsion technology for rapid insertion of nano/micro satellites (~ 5-50 kg scale) into low earth orbit, with the potential to lower the current state-of-the-art launch stage cost by a factor of two. The technology employs a propulsion scheme comprising a storable liquid oxidizer and a unique sol ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Robotic Tool for Asteroid Resource Prospecting and CharacterizationSBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: T402
Optical fibers are inherently tolerant of cosmic radiation and a wide temperature range, immune to electromagnetic noise and thus solar flares, etc. Embedded fiber sensors can be highly resistant to shock and vibration, hence their usage in the oil drilling industry. IFOS will work with Stanford?s Center for Design Research to develop a robotic prospecting tool with fiber-optic based haptic sensi ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Soft Robotic Manipulators with Enhanced Perception using Multimodal Sensory SkinsSBC: Other Lab Inc. Topic: T1101
We propose that the key to robotic automation in unstructured environments is compliant robotic manipulators that can tolerate, sense, and leverage contact in a feedback loop. We will demonstrate an instrumented end-effector that will be capable of enhanced perception through observed and controlled contact. This approach requires: (i) a network of sensors capable of capturing the highly compliant ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
