  1. Integrated Design and Analysis Environment for Safety Critical Human-Automation Systems

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A106

    Numerous advances have been made in recent years in the areas of flight deck design, aircraft modeling, resilient control, and vehicle health management. The combination of these complementary technologies promises to revolutionize aircraft systems and operations safety in the decades ahead. However, the task of safely integrating these technologies is becoming increasingly difficult as their le ...

  2. Market Mechanisms for Airspace Flow Program Slots

    SBC: Metron Aviation, Inc.            Topic: A301

    Metron Aviation, Inc. proposes to design a system to support a marketplace in which flight operators can exchange arrival slots in traffic flow management (TFM) initiatives such as airspace flow programs (AFPs) and ground delay programs (GDPs) while requiring no changes in FAA automation or procedures. The advent of AFPs in 2006 has generated many more potentially exchangeable resources that would ...

  3. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Integration into the NAS

    SBC: Metron Aviation, Inc.            Topic: A301

    Technological innovations have enabled a wide range of aerial vehicles that can be remotely operated. Viable applications include military missions, law enforcement, border patrol, weather data collection, telecommunications, land use imaging, and cargo transport. NASA and other organizations have invested heavily in this unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) research. UAVs can be flown in the National Ai ...

  4. ATC Operations Analysis via Automatic Recognition of Clearances

    SBC: Mosaic ATM, Inc.            Topic: A302

    Recent advances in airport surface surveillance have motivated the creation of new tools for analysis of Air Traffic Control (ATC) operations, such as the Surface Operations Data Analysis and Adaptation (SODAA) tool, which is being used by NASA to conduct airport ATC operations analysis. What is missing from ATC operations analysis, however, is accessible and reliable data regarding the clearances ...

  5. DARWIN-HC: A Tool to Predict Hot Corrosion of Nickel-Based Turbine Disks

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A103

    Hot Corrosion of turbine engine components has been studied for many years. The underlying mechan-isms of Type I Hot Corrosion and Type II Hot Corrosion are increasingly well-understood. Modern turbine engine designs that seek to achieve better fuel efficiency in part by increasing turbine inlet temperatures are strong candidates for nickel-based superalloy turbine disk materials. As disk tempe ...

  6. Tactile Data Entry System

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: O301

    Building on our successful Phase I Tactile Data Entry program, Barron Associates proposes development of a Glove-Enabled Computer Operations (GECO) system to permit suited crewmembers to perform virtual keyboard/mouse interactions using an instrumented EVA glove. The Phase II system will use two-hand motion tracking, multi-finger gesture recognition, and vibrotactile feedback to create an intuiti ...

  7. Desensitized Optimal Filtering and Sensor Fusion Tool Kit


    Research on desensitized optimal filtering techniques and a navigation and sensor fusion tool kit using advanced filtering techniques is proposed. Research focuses on reducing the sensitivity of Kalman filters with respect to model parameter uncertainties using a robust trajectory optimization approach called Desensitized Optimal Control, developed by the proposing company. The proposed tool kit i ...

  8. High-Speed Neutron and Gamma Flux Sensor for Monitoring Surface Nuclear Reactors

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: X702

    NASA needs compact nuclear reactors to power future bases on the moon and/or Mars. These reactors require robust automatic control systems using low mass, rapid response, in-core reactor power monitoring sensors and radiation tolerant sensor interrogation systems that do not yet exist. Luna proposes to develop a new type of fiber optic miniature neutron flux and gamma flux sensor, which will have ...

  9. Coherent Laser Radar Metrology System for Large Scale Optical Systems

    SBC: Pyxisvision Incorporated            Topic: S205

    A new type of laser radar metrology inspection system is proposed that incorporates a novel, dual laser coherent detection scheme capable of eliminating both environmental and scanner based Doppler ranging error. Measurement of large telescope structures and optics requires both high accuracy and non-contact technology. Due to the non-contact, stand-off nature of this technology, this system can m ...

  10. Cold Weather Technology Development for Low Altitude Ultra-Long Endurance Applications

    SBC: VANILLA AIRCRAFT            Topic: S309

    Currently, wide area coverage with manned aircraft, or existing unmanned air systems, requires expensive logistical operations and many flight sorties, which are made especially difficult if operating from remote airfields in inhospitable climates. There is currently a need for a low-altitude long endurance unmanned aircraft that can provide the expansive coverage necessary for cryospheric investi ...
