  1. In-Flight and Pre-Flight Detection of Pitot Tube Anomalies

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: A110

    The health and integrity of aircraft sensors play a critical role in aviation safety. Unfortunately, inaccurate or false readings from these sensors can lead to improper decision-making resulting in serious and sometimes fatal consequences. The research performed in Phase I demonstrated the feasibility of using advanced data analysis techniques to identify anomalies in Pitot tubes resulting from ...

  2. Observation Platform for Dynamic Biomedical and Biotechnology Experiments using the ISS Light Microscopy Module

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O303

    The objective of the research is the completion of an observation platform for the ISS Light Microscopy Module (LMM) as it currently resides on the U.S. Fluids Integration Rack (FIR). In its current configuration the LMM accommodates a Contained Bubble Experiment, and it has no substage illuminator and limited epi-illumination. There is a need for future use of the LMM in more versatile fluids a ...

  3. UCDS Based Stable Injector Design

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: X1001

    History has repeatedly shown that combustion instability is the greatest technical risk faced in any chemical propulsion development program. The UCDS Process addresses this issue by using a rigorous physics-based analytical framework to decompose the complex flow field inside a chemical propulsion device, such as a liquid or solid rocket, in a way that allows rapid simulation of the dynamic behav ...

  4. Autonomus I&C Maintenance and Health Monitoring System for Fission Surface Power

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: X702

    The primary goal of this project is to design and develop an autonomous instrumentation and control (I & C) health monitoring system for space nuclear power applications. The system, once fully developed, will be able to detect system anomalies based on analytical modeling technique using data from existing sensors in the power generator.The primary application for the proposed technology wil ...

  5. High Reliability Cryogenic Piezoelectric Valve Actuator

    SBC: DYNAMIC STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: X801

    Cryogenic fluid valves are subject to harsh exposure and actuators to drive these valves require robust performance and high reliability. DSM's piezoelectric actuators offer advantages over traditional alternative actuator technology. However, in order to use piezoceramic actuators in cryogenic fluid handling applications, proof of operational reliability and improvements in thermal neutral ...

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

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O302

    Traditionally spaceflight life science experiments require the return of samples to earth for analysis, which is frequently a challenge to the success of investigations. Even with more analytical instruments on ISS, conditions do not facilitate the transfer of liquid samples from experimental devices to analytical devices. In response to the science community's call for on-orbit analyses, Tec ...

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

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O302

    Techshot, Inc. proposes to develop a Multi-specimen Variable-G Facility (MVF) for life and microgravity sciences research. The MVF incorporates a generic multi-specimen sample holder which can be accessed on-orbit, allowing data to be obtained in real-time. Candidate specimens accommodated by the MVF include various cells (e.g. for culturing), aquatics, plants, algae, and invertebrate organisms. ...

  8. Reliable, Reusable Cryotank

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: O204

    Microcracking issues have significantly limited the reusability of state-of-the-art (SOA) composite cryotanks. While developers have made some progress addressing this reusability issue, there are also significant reliability issues with the SOA cryotanks due to their inconsistent structural performance.GTL has identified the root cause of this reliability issue and proposes to confirm this diagn ...

  9. BHL Cryotank for Long Term Use

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: X503

    GTL has already made substantial progress in developing and validating the BHL<SUP>TM</SUP> technology for application to cryotanks. Earlier coupon testing of the temperature-dependent material properties confirmed the potential of the BHL technology to eliminate the microcracking issue. This was followed by the fabrication and cryo-pressure cycle testing of small BHL cylinders. No ...

  10. Autonomus I&C Maintenance and Health Monitoring System for Fission Surface Power

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: X702

    There currently exists no end-to-end reactor/power conversion monitoring system that can provide both autonomous health monitoring, but also in-situ sensor calibration and response time testing without human interface. One of the key challenges facing space nuclear power systems is their extremely remote location and requirement for multi-year missions. The current benchmark system has a mission ...
