SBC: Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems, Inc. Topic: T501
Tyvak, in collaboration with UCLA, proposes a novel approach to the challenge of creating a large reflector for Ka-band high data rate links. We propose to attach the primary reflector surface permanently to the surface of a 6U spacecraft and illuminate the reflector using a Cassegrain style subreflector with an illuminating antenna that is permanently mounted to the transmitter / receiver inside ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated Topic: T601
Luna is addressing NASA?s need to develop new multifunctional textiles for improved Environmental Protection Garments (EPG). Previous protective suits such as the Apollo era EPG or currently used Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) provide thermal and micrometeoroid protection, but are intended only for short duration use. NASA plans for a future manned Mars mission will potentially require exten ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Bi-Metallic Additive Manufacturing Close-Out of Coolant Channels for Large Liquid Rocket Engine (LRE) NozzlesSBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC Topic: T1204
This NASA sponsored STTR project will investigate methods for close-out of large, liquid rocket engine nozzle, coolant channels utilizing robotic laser and pulsed-arc additive manufacturing methods. Copper to Nickel alloy interface strength will be quantified and metallurgical characterization completed. A thermal model based on Rosenthal?s analytical expression for a moving heat source, which has ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: Morningbird Media Corporation Topic: T1204
The proposed 9-month research project aims for the development of additive manufacturing techniques for the creation of electronic devices. It will develop an innovative additive manufacturing technique that combines the ink-based printing with laser melting technology to directly print a three-dimensional (3D) system with built-in electrical properties and functioning as an electronic device. Th ...STTR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: VOXTEL, INC. Topic: T901
To address the urgent need for 3D flash-lidar technology for landing on solar system bodies and for spacecraft rendezvous and docking with satellites, an effort is proposed to fabricate, characterize, and test a versatile, high-sensitivity InGaAs APD 3D flash lidar and to advance the technology-readiness level (TRL) of lidar technologies suitable for NASA mission requirements. Leveraging an existi ...STTR Phase II 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: Prime Photonics, LC Topic: T1201
Prime Photonics proposes to team with Dr. Duke of Virginia Tech to develop a multi-mode, enhanced piezoelectric acoustic emission sensing system to couple large damage events to local distribution of damage accommodation. Our system will be centered around an instrument designed to accept the output of a piezoelectric transducer sensitive to in-plane acoustic events. The signal processing path w ...STTR Phase II 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: Radiometrics Corporation Topic: T103
Launch safety and efficiency requires timely and accurate wind, thermodynamic and pressure information from the surface to 20 km height, and lightning risk identification. A Doppler radar now provides wind measurements that satisfy this requirement at the Eastern Test Range. Thermodynamic soundings are provided by intermittent radiosondes on launch day. Typical intervals of an hour or more between ...STTR Phase I 2017 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: EMBEDDED DYNAMICS LLC Topic: T1501
The tiltwing class of aircraft consists of vehicles with the ability to rotate the wing and propulsion system as a unit a full 90 degrees from the standard fixed wing configuration to one in which the wing and thrust axis become perpendicular to the body axis. This thrust vectoring capability allows the aircraft to utilize thrust borne flight for vertical takeoff and landing as well as the convent ...STTR Phase I 2017 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated Topic: T802
Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to develop an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged, and miniature ...STTR Phase I 2017 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
SBC: Universal Technology Corporaration Topic: T1204
In this Phase II STTR project, the proposed collaborative effort between UTC, AFIT, and ULRF represents a crucial step forward for AM. UTC’s unique AM optimization and process control framework, constructed entirely from experimental sensor data collected in-situ, will finally transfer technology from our SLM test bed system to state-of-the-art and commercial-grade systems, including a Concept ...STTR Phase II 2017 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
