Compact Vibration Damper

Do you have a need to reduce vibration in high performance structures? Then, you’ll want to attend this NASA Tech Briefs Webinar!NASA Langley Research Center has developed a compact tuned damper that reduces vibration occurring at a fixed frequency. Structural vibrations frequently need to be damped to prevent damage to a structure. Tuned dampers reduce vibration of the base structure by the dissipation of energy. The magnitude of the dissipated energy is proportional to the square of the displacement or velocity of the tuned mass, which in turn is proportional to the range of motion.

Thermal Management: Heat Pipes, HiKTM Plates, and Vapor Chambers – Selection and Modeling

Heat pipes, high conductivity (HiK™) plates, and vapor chambers are two phase technologies that are often considered for electronics cooling.  All three devices rely on the very high evaporation and condensation coefficients of two phase fluids to reduce the ΔT between the source and the sink for a given power.  When properly engineered for power and mission duration, all of these devices provide passive, reliable cooling.

Smart Enclosures using RFID for Inventory Management

The NASA Johnson Space Center has developed a method for tracking collections of items in a smart container using radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags with a high level of read accuracy. Automating the tracking of a collection of items (particularly small items) represents a major industrial hurdle due to both tag size and cost. This technology promises to successfully address these hurdles. The smart enclosure innovation can track individual items in the smart containers or receptacles regardless of item placement. The NASA-developed patent-pending technology is available for licensing.
