This study considers emergency escape vehicles (EEV) design for Space Shuttles. The proposed EEV has the reverse Apollo-style cone configuration, contains a manned gyro-stabilized suspension rotator sphere, and has a collapsible module. Therefore, it gives astronauts a high permissible gravitational loading and survivability. The proposed EEV has high volumetric efficiency and is removable, so the Space Shuttle still can carry a large payload. The designs of the EEV system greatly extend the lifespan of the remaining space shuttle fleet indeed.
With Federal R&D budgets now at their highest in over a decade, the United States seems firmly committed to a continuance of its technological superiority despite the ravages of inflation and the public clamor to cut spending in every sector of the economy. Budget increases for military, aerospace, and energy research were particularly high last year, with development of new weapon systems, the space shuttle, and new sources of power having the highest priorities.
In recent years, the Department of Defense and NASA have imposed significant resources on developing advanced launch technologies. Reusable launch vehicle (RLV) program is one of such efforts to take the place of space shuttles for RLVs. Our previous research proposed a scheme of motion primitives (MPs) and neighboring optimal control (NOC) to deal with on-line failure recovery for an RLV during approach and landing (A&L). In this paper, more general system dynamics is employed and the extension of MPs and NOC used in the trajectory generation during both terminal area energy management (TAEM) and A&L is discussed.
Aerospike nozzles have been expected as a candidate for an engine of reusable Space Shuttles to respond to growing demand for rocket-launching at the lower cost. In this study, the flow field structures in any cross sections around the linear-type aerospike nozzle are visualized and analyzed, using laser induced fluorescence (LIF) of NO seeded in the carrier gas N/sub 2/. Since the flow field structure is affected mainly by the pressure ratio (P/sub s//P/sub a/), the linear-type aerospike nozzle is set inside the vacuum chamber to carry out the experiments in the wide range of pressure ratios from 75 to 250. Flow fields are visualized in several cross-sections, demonstrating the complicated three-dimensional flow field structures. Pressure sensitive paint (PSP) of PtTFPP bound by poly(TMSP) is also applied successfully to measurement of the complicated pressure distribution on the spike surface.
In the era since Canada followed the Soviet Union and the United States into space, space technology has evolved enormously. No longer the exclusive purview of fully developed countries, space is being harnessed for the benefit of humanity by even small countries and individual establishments. The exploitation of space applications is limited only by the imagination and resolve of the interested parties. Canada's initiation into space took the form of Alouette 1, launched in 1962 to learn more about the physics of electromagnetic phenomena interfering with its radio communications with its northern areas. International collaboration has played an important role and continues to be emphasized as its exploitation of space progressed from science and communications to remote sensing to space robotics. Even today, Canada has declined to develop an independent launch capability, preferring to collaborate with the nations endowed with such a capability. Recent developments in Canada have seen collaboration extend inward, with federal/provincial and private/public sector cooperation on selected space missions. Such collaboration has proven very beneficial to Canada and is recommended globally. Canadian harnessing of space technology began in the domain of communications, moving from R&D into phenomena affecting communications to the world's first domestic geostationary satellite communications system. Today, Canadians have access to not only our own domestic comsats but also international service providers which include Canadian elements. Canadian involvement in space robotics received a big boost with the contribution of the CANADARM to NASA for use on their space shuttles. It grew further with the CANADARM-2 for the International Space Station (ISS), a sophisticated robot which is still evolving, the third main element not yet launched. This arm is available for use by the international partners on the ISS, a major international scientific collaboration.
Smaller, faster, and cheaper sensors resulted from continuing advances in sensor, semiconductor, and communication systems technology makes it possible to have real sensor intensive networks of fixed and mobile devices for use in many in-door and out-door applications. Several sensor network testbeds have been developed, but none of them consider how to incorporate smart sensor capability in the system. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of a testbed, ToSS (Testbed of Smart Sensors), developed in collaboration with NASA Stennis Space Center for testing and verifying IEEE 1451-compatible sensor systems with network performance monitoring capability for space shuttles and other space exploration relevant tasks.
ECVT has been widely used in different fields including oil refinery systems, chemical processes, space shuttles and medicals. The technique generates a whole volumetric image from the measured capacitance of the region enclosed by the geometrically three-dimensional sensor. However, the data acquisition and data processing of the ECVT are done on separate applications, which makes a real time measurement and visualization cannot be achieved. This paper describes a design and development of an Integrated Data Acquisition and Data Processing application for ECVT. The application implements data acquisition and data processing in one platform. Furthermore, the designed software also provides parallel implementation of the image reconstruction to speed up the image reconstruction. The software is developed using Python language, and open source Python library for scientific computing.
The measurement of mass flow rate of the two-phase cryogenic flow is attracting a lot of interest lately due to the possible special applications for the fluids it measures. The combination solid/liquid hydrogen or slush hydrogen, solid/liquid nitrogen or slush nitrogen are only few of the two phase cryogenic flow that can be of interest for various applications because of the greater cooling performance, greater compactness and lighter weight. The applications of such fluids include but are not limited to cooling of superconducting cable, fuel for space shuttles, large cryogenic installations and superconducting accelerators. In this paper we report on the two-phase cryogenic flow measurement based on the density capacitive.
Due to the inherent complexity of resource constrained scheduling, the project durations of resource constrained project plans can be two times or more longer than needed. This paper shows that the scheduling engine used effects the project duration even for relatively small projects consisting of a few dozen tasks, and the effect can become enormous as the number of tasks grows into the thousands and a number of types and quantity of resources expands. Unfortunately, the type of algorithm used by most commercial project planning software for handling resources, is a relatively inefficient methodology for scheduling resource constrained projects.
This paper summarizes a joint NIST-NASA measurement effort to thoroughly evaluate the electromagnetic penetration of the shuttle Endeavour. NASA is concerned about the effects that microwave imaging radar systems might have on critical avionics systems on its fleet of space shuttles. As part of a multifaceted effort, a portable, NIST-developed ultra-wideband measurement system was deployed at the Kennedy Space Center to evaluate electromagnetic penetration over the frequency range of 30 MHZ - 6 GHz at selected locations inside Endeavour. The measurements were performed inside a large metal hangar, which exhibited robust reverberant behavior. A combination of reverb chamber techniques and time/frequency signal processing permitted the evaluation of electromagnetic penetration at six different locations inside the orbiter.
