Non-invasive Intracranial Pressure Measurement

Critical care medicine is a timely, accurate, quickly deployable, cost-effective, and, importantly, safe way of determining and/or monitoring vital aspects/parameters of patient health, such as intracranial pressure. However, ICP monitoring is complicated by a large number of variables related to the patients' health — including symptoms, environment, and related reports that point to such measurement; and pertinent accompanying issues. The ability to correlate closely with established tympanic membrane displacement ICP monitoring methods is a major selling feature of this system.

Magnetic Field Response Measurement Acquisition System

Langley Research Center researchers have developed a measurement acquisition device that uses magnetic fields to power sensors and collect physical property data from them. This technology has been used by a leading aircraft landing gear manufacturer to wirelessly record the fluid content in landing gear shock struts, winner of the prestigious R&D 100 award.

Cord Tension Measurement Device (C-Gauge)

As parachutes and inflatable structures, NASA uses Cordage-based flexible structure systems. Cords must be cut and attached to a metallic interface in traditional in-line load cells. With a small, low-profile, and lightweight unit, the C-Gauge attaches to the cord without any severing of the cord and measures the structural response without affecting the system's dynamics.

Digital Projection Focusing Schlieren System

Researchers at NASA have developed a compact LCD-integrated optical assembly that allows a research camera to gather focusing schlieren and other image-based measurement data from a research camera. In addition, traditional focus schlieren imaging techniques are only sensitive to a single density gradient. NASA's digital single-grid system uses a programmable LCD as the grid configuration allows on-the-fly grid adjustments to enable unprecedented degree of experimentability for image-based measurements.

Flexible Body Control Using Fiber Optic Sensors (FlexFOS)

NASA Kennedy Space Center is searching for commercial partners interested in the Flexible Body Control Using Fiber Optic Sensors technology for commercial use. FlexFOS measures responsive dynamic state by a reference strain structure and fiber optic strain sensors. FlexFOS can be used with an inertial measurement unit to help end users distinguish between the rigid body and flexible body portions of the total motion when combined with an inertial measurement system.

Sampling and Control Circuit Board

The circuit board allows the normal overhead associated with IMU data collection to be carried out outside of the system processor, freeing up time to run intensive algorithms in parallel. This Glenn device includes the circuit schematic, board layout, and microcontroller firmware for the IMU sampling and control circuit board.

Electric Field Imaging System

The Electric Field Imaging System at NASA Langley Research Center's Electric Field Imaging System is the only noncontact method capable of quantitatively measuring electrostatic fields in near- and far-field applications. The EFI system has the ability to be a lower-cost, portable, and safer alternative to the imaging devices currently used in these applications.
