Highly Aligned Electrospun Fibers and Mats

NASA's Langley Research Center's Langley Research Center has developed a modified electrospinning machine for spinning tightly aligned polymer fibers. Now, NASA Langley has developed the capability to monitor fibers' alignment and porosity of mats fibers, extending the range of engineering uses of electrospun materials to include new tissue engineering scaffolds, membrane filters, textiles, embedded sensors, and actuators.

The Hilbert-Huang Transform Real-Time Data Processing System

The Fourier Integral Transform and its high-performance digital cousin, the Fast Fourier Transform, are two of the key heritage tools used in scientific and engineering data spectrum analysis. The Fourier perspective of nonlinear mechanics that had existed for a long time and the related FFT have raised concerns about the source data, such as linearity and being stationary.

Adaptive Spatial Resolution Enables Focused Fiber Optic Sensing

This advanced fiber optic sensing innovation developed at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center provides a unique blend of high-resolution processing and flexibility. Users can now specify resolution and accuracy requirements with ease. This technology effectively delivers the right answer in the right location at the right time by making it possible to optimize data transmission bandwidth and reduce processing time to minimize extraneous computations.

MERRA/AS and Climate Analytics-as-a-Service (CAaaS)

The Modern Era-Retrospective Analysis of Research and Applications incorporates results from a variety of satellite systems with numerical models to produce a temporally and spatially consistent synthesis of climate variables that are not readily observed. From 1979 to the present, the MERRA time period covers the modern era of remotely sensed data.

The Teletenna - A Hybrid Telescope Antenna System

Innovators at NASA's Glenn Research Center's Glenn Research Center have developed Teletenna, a multi-band antenna system, to enable high data-rate communication over long distances. Teletenna has the ability to support deep space missions and Earth communications. Teletenna successfully integrates two very different communications technologies, optics and radio frequency, in a seamless way, Teletenna maximizes on the advantages of each device while still satisfying conflicting engineering specifications.

Shape Memory Alloy with Adjustable, Wide-Ranging Actuation Temperatures

Innovators at NASA's Glenn Research Center have created a new Nickel Titanium shape memory alloy with additions of Hafnium and Zirconium that provides a wider transformation temperature range and greater dimensional stability than any other SMA on the market. Despite their numerous unique features, SMAs' widespread commercial success has been elusive due to limited phase change temperatures and dimensional instability in high cycle applications.

A Portable Impactor Device

An impact probe, an instrumented projectile, a spring to propel the projectile, a spring compressor, a spring compression device, a lock pin, a wooden spacer/locator block, and an optical sensor are among the test article's configurations. The researchers developed a fully working prototype for the NASA Engineering and Safety Centers Composite Crew Module program for damage tolerance testing.
