  1. Reliable Actuator for Cryo Propellant Fluid Control

    SBC: DYNAMIC STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: X1001

    Fluid handling applications in cryogenic and extreme environments require reliable actuation technology that can handle extreme temperatures, mechanical bind-up from ice and foreign contaminants, and operation in poor conditions. A novel EM hammer drive technology is proposed for use in cryo-propellant fuel storage and regulation valves/devices. In addition to high force, the new drive technolog ...

  2. Intelligent Radiative Materials

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: T1002

    An opportunity to boost energy efficiency in homes and buildings exists through the design of functional radiative properties in glass and other building materials. Current surface materials ignore or take first-order approaches to complicated spectral behavior, leading to sub-optimal properties. The sensitivity of material properties to microscale surface structuring creates a design challenge ...

  3. Life Science Research Sample Transfer Technology for On Orbit Analysis

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O302

    With retirement of the space shuttle program, microgravity researchers can no longer count on bringing experiment samples back to earth for post-flight analysis. Locker-sized processing facilities, which were typically transported up to and down from the International Space Station during the shuttle era, quite simply consume too much volume, mass, and power to be accommodated as part of both the ...

  4. Multi-Specimen Variable-G Facility for Life and Microgravity Sciences Research

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O302

    The Multi-specimen Variable-G Facility (MVF) is a single locker sized centrifuge facility for life and microgravity sciences research on the International Space Station. The MVF is a rear breather EXPRESS Rack payload that leverages many of the existing subsystems of flight proven (STS-108) Avian Development Facility (ADF) thereby reducing costs and time to flight for new scientific capability. ...

  5. Simulation Environment for Power Management and Distribution Development

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: S305

    The overall objective of this research project is to investigate an autonomous and online control structure for finite-inertia power systems (dc and ac) with a real-time system simulation embedded within the control. The dual use aspect of this research will be demonstrated by focusing simultaneously on model development for both spacecraft power systems and terrestrial micro-grids. Both of these ...

  6. A Novel Flow Measurement System for Cryogenic Two-Phase Flow

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: X1001

    Flow rate measurements for cryogenic propellants are required for spacecraft and space exploration systems. Such a requirement has been hampered by lack of fast and accurate instruments among existing technologies. This proposed project will develop a mass flow measurement system for non-conducting cryogenic propellant flow to meet the NASA's need. In the proposed system, an electromagneti ...

  7. Remotely Controlled Mixers for LMM Colloid Samples

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O302

    Designation of the International Space Station (ISS) as a National Laboratory creates exciting opportunities for a broad spectrum of researchers to take advantage of ISS's unique space attributes and scientific research facilities. The Light Microscopy Module (LMM), which was developed and is being managed by the NASA Glen Research Center (GRC), is currently operating on the ISS and has suppo ...

  8. Reliable Actuator for Cryo Propellant Fluid Control

    SBC: DYNAMIC STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: X1001

    Cryogenic fluid handling applications require a reliable actuation technology that can handle very low temperatures. A novel EM hammer drive technology is proposed for use in cryo-propellant fuel storage and regulation valves/devices. In addition to high force, the new drive technology offers potential advantages for miniaturization, reduction of heat load, and lower cost as compared to traditio ...

  9. Nonlinear Data Analysis Tool for Scramjets and Other Engines

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: A202

    The UCDS process is the result of 50 years of research into combustion instability by the worlds leading scientists and engineers. The breakthroughs that created UCDS have provided a solid analytical foundation upon which tools can be developed and applied. One of these is the UCDS nonlinear tool, which GTL has been applying with much success in the investigations of the dynamics of solid rocket ...

  10. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: N/A

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging data needs to be calibrated using a universal standard. NIST and the ISMRM SQRM committee have developed the NIST/NIST MR phantom. The group had two phantoms manufactured to their specifications and these phantoms have been imaged at numerous imaging facilities. Sigma-K now proposes to develop a complete manufacturing method that will produce 50 MRI phantoms. These phant ...
