Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-2
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Meeting the objectives of returning to the moon by 2020 will require NASA to fly a series of telerobotic lunar orbital and surface vehicles to prove the viability of In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) and assist in precursor human base preparation. A real-time 3D tool that creates plausible simulations of space environments and vehicles can bri...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 05-2
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

All research and development in the nation's space program is being aligned around the new Exploration Systems Enterprise vision. The proposed work product for this SBIR II, a Universal Model Repository (UMR) to reduce time and costs for a wide range of mission simulation and training applications, is designed to serve that vision. The UMR will ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 05-1
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

This Phase I proposal will develop a virtual test fixture performing a high caliber 3D dynamic reproduction of an prototype lunar bucket wheel excavator prototype developed at the Colorado School of Mines. This virtual test fixture will support an experimental telerobotics interface through a visual virtual environment built by DigitalSpace and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-1
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Phase I proposal seeks support to extend the BrahmsVE architecture to support a multi-agent human-centric simulation of a hypothetical future ISS which is equipped with interior agents (PSA) and exterior tele-operated agents (Robonaut). An Agent Broker module will be constructed as well as detailed interior and exterior ISS 3D virtual world...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

Space systems involving people working with machines are becoming increasing complex to design, test, train for, and support during flight. This complexity is affecting all aspects of NASA?s programs and impacts mission viability in the critical areas of safety, cost, timeliness and effectiveness. Under development since 2000, BrahmsVE is a mode...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This proposal seeks to extend the existing BrahmsVE environment to support a semi-autonomous intelligent agent operating inside a 3D virtual world on the web. We are calling this agent the Personal Bot Assistant (PBA) and it will be paired with an agent-astronaut driven either by the user or by the Brahms model-based simulator. The PBA should al...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: USRA/RIACS

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

We propose to combine the proven Brahms multiagent work practice simulator and the DSpace1 3D thin client VR system to produce Brahms VE, a visual simulator used to improve human practices within a model of the work environment. The prototyping of the ALSEP deployment on Apollo XVI within Brahms VE should qualify this approach for a broader appl...
