  2. Oxidation Resistant CVI-C/SiC Composites via Molecular Level Matrix Inhibition

    SBC: Hyper-Therm High-Temperature Composites            Topic: N/A

    Carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide (C/SiC) composites produced by chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) are actively being developed for a variety of high-temperature aerospace applications. Although CVI-based C/SiC composites are a promising class of materials for structural applications demanding high strength and toughness at temperatures to 1650 C, these materials are vulnerable to severe str ...

  3. Transpinnor Electronics for a Mass Memory without Semiconductors

    SBC: INTEGRATED MAGNETOELECTRONICS            Topic: N/A

    The proposer (IME) is developing general-purpose electronics based on giant magnetoresistance (GMR). Underlying IME's all-metal electronics is the transpinnor, a novel device that shows amplification and either logic or linear characteristics. IME has designed and fabricated several transpinnor-based logic gates and simple linear circuits, which are being tested. The Phase 1 project objectives are ...

  4. An Advanced Extravehicular Activity Robot Assistant

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To move beyond teleoperated control of robot manipulators for ISS assembly and maintenance applications, robot controllers that support interactive learning will be required. It is not possible for ground personnel to anticipate all scenarios in which robot assistants in space will be involved and pre-program their response. It will also be increasingly incumbent on the robot to ascertain the inte ...

  5. Time-Modulated Ultra-Wideband Multichannel Data System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The key innovation of this proposal is implementation of a Time Modulated Ultra-wideband (TM-UWB) radio to implement a bi-directional astronaut to spacecraft wireless link. Our innovation will also provide a real-time reading of the position of the astronaut, and with two small conformal antennas on the astronaut, it will provide the astronaut orientation and position in real-time. Within the last ...

  6. An Integrated Tool for Resource Scheduling and Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal, Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI) proposes an Automated Non-intrusive Health Monitoring tool for simultaneous component or structure degradation monitoring (trend analysis), fault detection, and diagnostics in ground systems. This prognostic technique, or health monitoring (HM) tool, can be combined with IAI's internetworking software to provide remote monitoring capabil ...

  9. Efficient, Ultrastable 1Watt Laser using Ytterbium Fiber Amplifier

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A space-qualifiable laser with extraordinary frequency stability, small size, and high efficiency is required for proposed metrology systems. Nonplanar ring oscillators (NPROs) are the baseline technology for these systems. NPROs can reach the 1-Watt power required for proposed systems. However, we believe that a system built around a single, high-power NPRO is not the best design. An approach whi ...

  10. Ultra-Lightweight SiC Mirror Structures

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    SiC based mirrors offer great potential for space-borne structures. Current support technology is limited due to poor fracture toughness of RBSiC. This proposal offers a novel, composite technology to produce near zero CTE structure exhibiting only 4 kg/m2 aerial density.
