Future Air traffic management Concepts Evaluation Tool (FACET)

The NASA Ames Research Center offers the opportunity to license and co-develop FACET, a flexible software tool for air traffic management. With thousands of planes flying overhead in the U.S. at any given time, there is an urgent need for tools that help avoid air traffic incidents and delays. To help air traffic control centers improve airline safety and efficiency, NASA Ames scientists developed FACET, a system software for performing powerful computational simulations for evaluating advanced... read more

Water Outlet Control Mechanism for Fuel Cell System Operation in Variable Gravity Environments
Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) have patented a self-regulated water separator that provides centrifugal separation of fuel cell product water from oxidant gas. The innovation uses the flow energy of the fuel cell’s two-phase water and oxidant flow stream, rather than actively controlled electric motors, to augment separation efficiency.

Advanced Actuators and Transducers: Hybrid actuator systems recover environment energy to power devices
Actuators and transducers are deployed to harvest mechanical energy in the environment as electrical energy and to convert stored electrical energy into mechanical energy. By developing a transducer based on advanced electroactive materials, NASA has produced a design that can harvest orders of magnitude more energy in a given application than traditional solutions, yielding more power to drive devices and store in batteries. In a complementary effort, a hybrid actuator system (HYBAS) with both... read more
