Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-O4.03
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Research on utilizing inexpensive and personal-level parallel computing architectures to speed up the implementation of the class of particle filters is proposed. This study will leverage NVIDIA Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and multi-core CPUs that are quickly becoming commonly available for engineering communities. Parallelization of the Un...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-O4.04
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Research on desensitized optimal filtering techniques and a navigation and sensor fusion tool kit using advanced filtering techniques is proposed. Research focuses on reducing the sensitivity of Kalman filters with respect to model parameter uncertainties using a robust trajectory optimization approach called Desensitized Optimal Control, develo...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT02
Budget: 04/15/10 - 01/14/11

We propose to investigate the feasibility of obtaining fast and accurate trajectories using global geopotential models representing departures from the two-body plus J2 terms. The proposed geopotential formulations and numerical integration methods rely on multi-core processors and the emerging massive parallel capabilities of Graphics Processi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-O4
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

It is proposed to develop desensitized optimal filtering techniques and to implement these algorithms in a navigation and sensor fusion tool kit. These proposed desensitized optimal filtering techniques include recent advances in robust and/or adaptive generalized Kalman and Sigma-Point filters for non-Gaussian problems with uncertain error sta...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

It is proposed to develop and implement a simulation of spacecraft rendezvous and docking guidance, navigation, and control in elliptical orbit. The foundation of the simulation will be an extension of an existing tool for optimal rendezvous and docking simulations for spacecraft in circular orbit. The existing tool architecture functions in two...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

The individual software tools that make up the analytical capabilities for the design of entry vehicles using an aero-assist/aero-capture device have been fully developed. In fact the performance of such software against the flight data has been superb, and NASA has used the results to make real-time decisions on the entry vehicles. However, the...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST99-004
Budget: 07/06/99 - 03/02/00

The objective of the overall project is to develop a virtual reality (VR) environment that supports the evaluation of key requirements for the construction and assembly of micro/nano scale 3D assemblies, thus eliminating the need for the time-consuming and expensive process of creating real hardware prototypes. For such VR systems, it is of utm...
