  1. Titanium Heat Pipe Thermal Plane

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: X6

    The objective of the Phase II program is to complete the development of the titanium heat pipe thermal plane and establish all necessary steps for production of this heat pipe. The main aerospace application for this titanium heat pipe design is fuel cell thermal management. Electronics cooling is expected to be the largest commercial market for this technology. The Phase I program was successf ...

  2. Sapphire Viewports for a Venus Probe

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: S505

    The proposed Phase 1 program will demonstrate that sapphire viewports are feasible for use in Venus probes. TvU's commercial viewport products have demonstrated that the pressure and temperature constraints will be met, while the use of materials appropriate to the atmospheric conditions will satisfy the overall physical constraints. The viewport system will be shown to be adaptable to overall NAS ...

  3. Superior Speech Acquisition and Robust Automatic Speech Recognition for Integrated Spacesuit Audio Systems

    SBC: WEVOICE, Inc.            Topic: O302

    Astronauts suffer from poor dexterity of their hands due to the clumsy spacesuit gloves during Extravehicular Activity (EVA) operations and NASA has had a widely recognized but unmet need for novel human machine interface technologies to facilitate data entry, communications, and robots or intelligent systems control. The objective of this research project is to develop a speech human interface th ...

  4. Lightweight Robotic Excavation

    SBC: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.            Topic: X601

    Robust, lightweight, power-efficient excavation robots are mission enablers for lunar outposts and surface systems. Lunar excavators of this type cost-effectively utilize native materials for both outpost preparation and in-situ resource utilization. They address the need for implements that dig, collect, transport, and dump lunar soil. Past prototypes, while providing valuable insights, have eit ...

  5. Scalable Gravity Offload System

    SBC: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.            Topic: T602

    The proposed innovation is a scalable gravity off-load system that enables controlled integrated testing of Surface System elements such as rovers, habitats, and space suits in planet-relevant gravity which addresses T6.02 in the direct solicitation of a gravity off-load system. Phase I delivers a nominal design in the form of a final report, Phase II builds this design and delivers hardware, and ...

  6. An Automated High Aspect Ratio Mesher for Computational Fluid Dynamics

    SBC: Ciespace Corporation            Topic: T801

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations are routinely used while designing, analyzing, and optimizing air- and spacecraft. An important component of CFD simulations is mesh generation, or discretization into polygonal or polyhedral cells, of the domain being analyzed. The overall computational cost and accuracy of simulations depend heavily on mesh quality – the size, shape, and structur ...

  7. Membrane Water Recuperator

    SBC: Wolf Engineering, LLC            Topic: X201

    One of the CO2 reduction technologies currently being developed by NASA is the CO2 and Moisture Removal Amine Swing-bed System (CAMRAS). One of the disadvantages of the CAMRAS for long duration missions is that it removes moisture in addition to CO2. One way to minimize the water loss from the atmosphere, yet still be able to implement the highly desirable CO2 removal function of the CAMRAS, is to ...

  8. NOVEL PROCESS FOR THE THIN FILM GROWTH OF YBA2CU3O7

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    REALIZATION OF THE PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGES OF SUPERCONDUCTING DEVICES IN HIGH FREQUENCY COMMUNICATIONS DEPENDS ON DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW TEMPERATURE DEPOSITION PROCESS WITH EXACTING CONTROL OF STOICHIOMETRY AND MORPHOLOGY. MOCVD CAN MEET THESE NEEDS COUPLED WITH EASE OFSCALE-UP. HOWEVER, RECENT WORK AT ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY MATERIALS, INC. SHOWS THAT YBACUO AND BISRCACUO FILMS GROWN BY MOCVD AT TEMPERA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. FABRICATION OF IR DETECTOR ARRAYS ON SILICON SUBSTRATES BY PULSED LASER DEPOSITION

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PROJECT OBJECTIVES ARE ADVANCING THE FABRICATION AND DESIGN TECHNOLOGY OF IR DETECTORS FROM BULK HGCDTE TO THE EMERGING TECHNOLOGY OF THIN FILMS; MAKING PROGRESS TOWARD FILMS ON SILICON WAFERS; AND IMPLEMENTING THE TECHNIQUE OF PULSED LASER DEPOSITION (PLD) FOR THE FABRICATION OF THESE HETEROEPITAXIAL-COMPOUND, SEMICONDUCTOR IR DETECTORS. PRESENT METHODS OF MATERIAL GROWTH, FROM BULK PROCESSES TO ...

  10. COMPUTER SIMULATION AND DESIGN OF JET NOISE SUPPRESSORS

    SBC: Aerochem Research            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTATIONAL, RATHER THAN EXPERIMENTAL, METHODS ARE PROPOSED TO DEVELOP, DESIGN, AND TEST THE NOISE SUPPRESSORS THAT WILL BE NEEDED TO QUIET THE JET TURBULENCE NOISE PRODUCED BY THE HIGH SPEED CIVIL TRANSPORT AND OTHER SUPERSONIC VEHICLES. THE VIABILITY OF THIS APPROACH IS DUE TO RECENT ADVANCES IN TURBULENCE THEORY AND NUMERICAL METHODS THAT COMBINE RENORMALIZATION GROUP METHODS AND SPECTRAL ELE ...
