  1. Hydroponic Rego-rock Produced In-Space for Efficient and Healthy Crop Growth

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T7

    In support of NASA's goals for efficient plant growth in Space, NanoSonic offers an inert polymeric binding system to make use of Mars surface regolith as a safe, structural, growth media for passive hydroponically grown plants.  Importantly, the proposed multi-functional binding agent will be combined with regolith to: 1) form a porous support structure with an optimal air-to-water ratio ...

  2. Fast, Parallel, High-Quality Voronoi Mesh Generator

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A1

    In this work we propose to further develop and demonstrate a mesh generation approach based on clipped Voronoi diagrams. This approach to mesh generation has the potential to significantly improve performance and robustness, while retaining important elements of high quality meshes including boundary alignment, stretching, and element regularity. Clipped Voronoi diagrams also automatically de-feat ...

  3. Consensus Algorithms and Data Exchange for Trajectory Negotiation

    SBC: Robust Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Trajectory-based operations (TBO) offer a major change in air traffic management with the potential for substantial performance and safety benefits. Considering the scope of the changes, TBO concepts must pass stringent hurdles for demonstrating technical feasibility, operational benefits, and safety. A successful TBO concept should provide benefits in the near term by using existing airline and F ...

  4. Autonomous Decentralized Coordination of Heterogeneous Unmanned Systems via Adaptive Auctions

    SBC: Heron Systems, Inc.            Topic: A2

    As robotics and autonomous systems continue to rapidly evolve into highly advanced, multi-mission systems capable of manned-unmanned teaming efforts, opportunities to leverage practical real-world autonomous intervehicle coordination becomes feasible. Disaster relief efforts such as search and rescue are poised to take advantage of collaborating unmanned assets to provide risk reduction and necess ...

  5. Optimization of Supersonic Jet Noise Using a Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes Approach

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: A1

    The objective of this proposal is the development and demonstration of a cost-effective high-fidelity aeroacoustic design tool for future commercial supersonic nozzle designs and installations. Although eddy-resolving  CFD methods for computing high-speed jet noise are available, such methods are computationally expensive and are currently deemed impractical for use in a design optimizat ...

  7. UAM Disturbance Rejection in Conceptual Design

    SBC: Empirical Systems Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: A1

    Complex and often violent urban wind environments pose a significant challenge to the safety and ride quality for vehicles intended for the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market. UAM aircraft concepts must have control authority, turbulence rejection, and ride comfort as figures of merit at the forefront of the configuration selection process. However, the evaluation of handling qualities has tradi ...

  8. Integrated High Frequency Electric Propulsor for Turbo-Electric Aircraft

    SBC: HINETICS LLC            Topic: A1

    We propose the development of a very high specific power integrated electric turbofan directly driven with a high frequency, air-core synchronous motor. If the target specific power is achieved, this technology could increase the viability of turbo-electric airplanes for commercial air transport, leading to significantly lower carbon emissions and energy use in aviation. The key inn ...

  9. SilverlineAN

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Modern aircraft systems have slowly evolved towards integrated modular computing architectures that are linked to multiple external networks. These developments have introduced cyber-attack vulnerabilities which did not exist in older-generation avionics systems.  To counter the emerging threats and increased vulnerabilities, an ability to comprehensively and systematically assess aviation cy ...

  10. Decentralized Cooperative Navigation for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in GPS-denied Environments

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: A2

    The use of small unmanned aerial vehicles (SUAVs) for civilian as well has military tasks, has been expanding steadily over the years. In this regard, cooperation and interoperability amongst multiple SUAVs has been seen as a key direction of future research by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). A central challenge in the cooperative navigation using multiple SUAVs is that they ...
