Unified In-Space Propulsion Framework for Prediction of Plume-Induced Spacecraft EnvironmentsSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP Topic: T102
Chemical contamination of spacecraft components as well as thermal and force loading from firing liquid propellant thrusters are critical concerns for in-space propulsion applications. Gas molecular contamination and liquid droplet deposition due to incomplete combustion threaten to damage surface materials, sensitive instruments and optical sensors, and poses major risks for mission success. Liqu ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Structural Nervous SystemSBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES INC Topic: T1201
GTL?s SNS technology aids in the operation of new or existing structural health monitoring (SHM) systems by integrating data and power pathways into the structure. The use of this technology within a composite structure would allow engineers to place sensors from an SHM system directly where they are needed on a structure with instant power. GTL?s SNS technology offers the potential for developers ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Active Radiation ShieldSBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES INC Topic: T301
DEC-Shield technology offers the means to generate electric power from cosmic radiation sources and fuse dissimilar systems and functionality into a structural component to create a Multi-functional Structure (MFS). DEC-Shield integrated into MFS technology can be used to generate electric power and provide radiation protection in a space vehicle; even maximizing that protection by spreading the ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Extreme Environment Ceramic Energy Harvesting/SensorsSBC: Solid State Ceramics, Inc. Topic: T301
The program is focused on developing high temperature energy harvesting devices that can convert waste energy (primarily vibratory) such as the mechanical disturbance from thrusters as to include waste exhaust created during operational conditions. The program focus is on developing very high performance devices that are extremely robust and that can continuously operate at up to 500 C. The purpos ...STTR Phase II 2016 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. Energetic particles from SPEs associated with flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) may adversely affect not only beyond-Low-Earth-Orbit missions, but also aircraft avionics, communications, and airline crew/passenger health. It is cru ...STTR Phase II 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Subsurface Prospecting by Planetary DronesSBC: Astrobotic Technology, Inc. Topic: T402
Recurring slope linae (RSL), such as those in Newton Crater on Mars, methane plumes in hazardous Martian terrain, and water ice discovered during the LCROSS experiment in the Moon?s permanently shadowed Cabeus Crater drive the need for a new generation of robotic explorers that access, probe, extract, and return resources from extreme terrains. These robots must possess sufficient system-level aut ...STTR Phase II 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Ceramic Matrix Composite Environmental Barrier Coating Durability ModelSBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC Topic: T1202
As the power density of advanced engines increases, the need for new materials that are capable of higher operating temperatures, such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), is critical for turbine hot-section static and rotating components. Such advanced materials have demonstrated the promise to significantly increase the engine temperature capability relative to conventional super alloy metallic ...STTR Phase II 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
