  2. A Robust Architecture for Sampling Small Bodies

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: T402

    This proposal will develop an innovative architecture and concept of operations that permits reliable, safe, and repeated sampling of small bodies. The Lofted Regolith Sampling (LoRS) architecture is based on advanced astrodynamics and autonomy that is robust to target-body uncertainties and is adaptive during operations. The LoRS architecture is based on several key phases that ultimately lead to ...

  3. Multi-Sensor Ensemble Aerosol Assimilation- CERES, MODIS and VIIRS

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: S503

    Accurate estimates of the radiative effects of clouds and aerosols are essential for an understanding of the Earth's climate system. Under the EOS program, NASA has placed into orbit a series of satellites devoted to long term observations of the climate state. Central to the observation of the radiation balance are the CERES instruments that fly on both the Terra (2000 - present) and Aqua (2002 ...

  4. Passive Wireless Sensor System for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: H1302

    Albido proposes to develop a Passive Wireless Sensor System for Structural Health Monitoring capable of measuring high-bandwidth temperature and strain of space and aerospace vehicle components operating in extreme environments. The proposed system uses a network of true passive Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) temperature/strain sensors that can be interrogated wirelessly from a distance of several me ...

  5. Spirally Stowed Architecture for Large Photovoltaic Arrays

    SBC: TENTGUILD ENGINEERING CO            Topic: H502

    Proposed is the development and validation in a laboratory environment of a photovoltaic (PV) array design of unique and enabling characteristics. Namely, smoothly deployed from compact stowage with one single, continuous sweep of motion, a total PV surface area up to and beyond 4000~m2 (the area associated with 1~MW power) is provided by two wings, with mechanical performance objectives also met ...

  6. Macro-Fiber Composite-based actuators for space

    SBC: Extreme Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: S202

    This SBIR project creates a CubeSat-based on-orbit Validation System (CVS) that provides performance data for Macro Fiber Composite (MFC) piezocomposite actuators operating in space and matures this precision deployable technology through validation tests in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). NASA customers include active structures like complex space-based deployable telescopes. Phases I/II advance MFC actua ...

  7. Multifunctional BHL Radiation Shield

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: H1101

    Advances in radiation shielding technology remain an important challenge for NASA in order to protect their astronauts, particularly as NASA grows closer to manned missions to the moon and Mars. Polyethylene is a readily available and structurally sound thermoplastic that has recently gained a fair amount of notoriety as an effective radiation shield. GTL is proposing to incorporate polyethylene ...

    SBIR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. Compact 3D Wind Sensor for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: S107

    Accurate wide-area mapping of three-dimensional (3D) wind vectors plays an important role in our ability to understand climate processes, predict weather patterns and hazards, and unravel planetary atmospheric dynamics, both on Earth and extraterrestrially. To this end, NASA has several airborne Doppler lidar platforms (e.g., DAWN, MACAWS) that are capable of mapping 3D wind vectors. These systems ...

    SBIR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Multifunctional Polyolefin Matrix Composite Structures

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: H1101

    Polyethylene, and ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) in particular, is an outstanding material for radiation shielding in the sense that its extraordinarily high hydrogen content both minimizes the production of secondary ions during exposure to energetic radiation and captures neutrons. Its low density and high wear resistance also make it attractive for the structures of manned spa ...

    SBIR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Robust, Highly Scalable Solar Array System

    SBC: ROCCOR, LLC            Topic: H501

    Solar array systems currently under development are focused on near-term missions with designs optimized for the 30-50 kW power range. However, NASA has a vital interest in developing much larger solar arrays (up to 1 MW of power) for Solar Electric Propulsion (SEP) missions. Scaling to this size will require fundamental changes in many aspects of the solar array system design as embodied by NAS ...
