Extreme Environment Ceramic Energy Harvesting/SensorsSBC: Solid State Ceramics, Inc. Topic: T301
It is proposed to address the critical element in the NASA/NRC report that identifies the need for Energy Harvesting that 'can provide local power to improve efficiency, or even provide power to NASA's equipment in Extreme Environments where other power sources could not operate or would be too large or bulky or inefficient. The same devices will provide harsh environment compatible sensor capabil ...STTR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Integrated Reacting Fluid Dynamics and Predictive Materials Degradation Models for Propulsion System ConditionsSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP Topic: T1202
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations are routinely used by NASA to optimize the design of propulsion systems. Current methods for CFD modeling rely on general materials properties to determine fluid structure interactions. This introduces uncertainty when modeling extreme conditions, where materials degrade and properties may change as a consequence. This also limits the use of CFD as a ...STTR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Improved Forecasting of Solar Particle Events and their Effects on Space ElectronicsSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP Topic: T602
High-energy space radiation from Galactic Cosmic Rays and Solar Particle Events (SPEs) pose significant risks to equipment and astronaut health in NASA missions. In particular, energetic particles from SPEs associated with flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) constitute a highly dynamic and penetrating radiation environment that may adversely affect not only beyond-Low-Earth-Orbit missions, bu ...STTR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Advanced Hybrid StageSBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES INC Topic: T101
The proposed technology builds off GTL's advanced solid ramjet fuel. The method uses additive manufacturing methods to produce an innovative new type of fuel grain that regresses quickly and has a high Isp and combustion efficiency. With this technology, the performance of a liquid rocket engine can be had with a hybrid rocket system. This technology allows for a simple, low cost, high performanc ...STTR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
ACE BoosterSBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES INC Topic: T102
GTL has been developing a suite of transformational technologies that have the capability to disrupt the traditional launch vehicle paradigm. BHL composite cryotank technology provides a four times improvement over large aluminum iso-grid tanks, offering a 6 percentage point improvement in small stage PMF. Superior Stability Engine is an innovative liquid rocket engine configured to maximize comb ...STTR Phase II 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Advanced Algorithms and Controls for Superior Robotic All-Terrain MobilitySBC: Protoinnovations, LLC Topic: T1101
ProtoInnovations, LLC (PI) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have formed a partnership to research, develop, and experimentally characterize a suite of robotic controls to significantly improve the safety, mean travel speed, and rough-terrain access of wheeled planetary rovers. In meeting this goal we have been developing algorithms for all-terrain adaptive locomotion which inclu ...STTR Phase II 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Multiple High-Fidelity Modeling Tools for Metal Additive Manufacturing Process DevelopmentSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP Topic: T1204
Despite the rapid commercialization of additive manufacturing technology such as selective laser melting, SLM, there are gaps in process modeling and material property prediction that contribute to slow and costly process development, process qualification and product certification. To address these gaps, CFDRC and our partner Dr. Kevin Chou, University of Alabama, will develop multiple computatio ...STTR Phase II 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
