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
AstroCube: An Asteroid Prospecting CubeSat MissionSBC: BUSEK CO INC Topic: T402
Busek, in partnership with Arizona State University (ASU), proposes to develop a robotic resource prospecting mission to a near-Earth asteroid using a 6U CubeSat, nicknamed "AstroCube". This ambitious mission is enabled by Busek's iodine-fueled BIT-3 RF ion propulsion system that can deliver ~1mN of thrust and ~2200sec of total Isp with 65W nominal input power. With 1.6kg of solid iodine propell ...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
