  1. Improved Navigation for Highly Dynamic Environments

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: H903

    Spacecraft missions are more commonly entering highly dynamic environments, such as lunar libration orbits, orbits about small bodies, and orbits driven by low-thrust propulsion. Advanced Space proposes to develop a robust navigation filter optimized for each of these highly dynamic environments. Further, the tool will be designed to be open-source and work with tools such as NASA's General Missio ...

  2. Electric Potential and Field Instrument for CubeSat (EPIC)

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: S105

    Upcoming NASA Earth and Space Science missions as well as planetary exploration missions will require improvements in particle and field sensors and associated instrument technologies. Technology developments are needed that result in expanded measurement capabilities and a reduction in size, mass, power, and cost. To that end, NASA has become increasingly interested in the use of small spacecra ...

  3. An Advanced Smoke-Eater for Post-Fire Cabin Atmosphere Cleanup

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: H302

    An on-board oxygen concentrator is required during long duration manned space missions to supply medical oxygen. The commercial medical oxygen generators based on pressure swing adsorption (PSA) are large and highly power intensive. TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) proposes to develop a small, lightweight, portable oxygen generator based on a vacuum swing adsorption (VSA) to produce concentrated medical ...

  4. LMM Holographic Optical Tweezers (HOT) Module

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: H1401

    We propose to expand the capabilities of the LMM for colloidal and other research by developing a holographic optical tweezers (HOT) module, allowing solid-state software-controlled micromanipulation with no moving parts. A HOT device produces hundreds of independently-steerable and independently-focusable beams, as well as other arbitrarily-complex 3D illumination patterns. HOT is useful for coll ...

  5. Integrated Launch Vehicle- Load Responsive MLI: High Performance during Launch Ascent, In-Air, On-Orbit and On-Mars

    SBC: Quest Thermal Group, LLC            Topic: H204

    Human exploration requires new technologies for advanced in-space propulsion systems. Improvements in cryogenic propellant storage are a critical need. NASA's Technology Roadmaps call "Zero Boil Off storage of cryogenic propellants for long duration missions" the #2 technical challenge for future NASA missions. Quest Thermal has developed several innovative, advanced thermal insulation systems, ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Low-Cost Small Reentry Devices to Enhance Space Commerce and ISS Utilization

    SBC: TERMINAL VELOCITY AEROSPACE, LLC            Topic: H1002

    Terminal Velocity Aerospace, LLC (TVA) proposes to enable commercial space activity and improve utilization of the International Space Station (ISS) through use of small reentry devices (REDs) for high-temperature materials flight testing and small payload return missions. TVA is presently developing two RED systems with a high degree of technological similarity. The first is RED-Data2, a 1.7 kg c ...
