The way that the Internet is accessed has changed dramatically in recent years. In addition to wire line connections such as dial-up, xDSL, cable modems or optical fiber, wireless implementations are gaining market share based on technologies such as WiFi, WiMAX, MBWA, satellite and cell phone networks. This thesis examines the potential usage of providing Internet access through cellular infrastructure. The cellular evolution path from first generation (1G) to third generation (3G) and fourth...

Living bone is continually undergoing processes of growth, reinforcement and resorption. These processes are termed collectively 'remodeling'. The remodeling processes in living bone are the mechanisms by which the bone adapts its histological structure to long-term changes in loading. Prolonged straining of a bone tends to make the bone stiffer, stronger and more dense; conversely, a living bone not subjected to its accustomed strain level will, in time, become more compliant, weaker and more...

This custom bibliography from the NASA Scientific and Technical Information Program lists a sampling of records found in the NASA Aeronautics and Space Database. The scope of this topic includes technologies for ultimately enabling us to "cut the cord" with Earth for space logistics. This area of focus is one of the enabling technologies as defined by NASA s Report of the President s Commission on Implementation of United States Space Exploration Policy, published in June 2004.

Among the many issues to be addressed in planning for the eventual human exploration of Mars are the processes of social adaptation and psychological adjustment to prolonged isolation in an extreme environment. An understanding of these two interrelated processes is critical from the standpoint of personnel selection, crew organization, and task performance. The human experience of exploration and research in Antarctica can contribute much to this understanding. This paper provides a brief...

NASA's Human Exploration Framework Team posed the question: "Is 80 cubic meters per person of habitable volume acceptable for a proposed Deep Space Habitat?" The goal of the workshop was to address the "net habitable volume" necessary for long-duration human spaceflight missions and identify design and psychological issues and mitigations. The objectives were: (1) Identify psychological factors -- i.e., "stressors" -- that impact volume and layout specifications...

In space, there is a need to monitor astronauts' vital signs and assess their readiness to perform specific tasks during a mission. Currently, NASA does not have the capability to noninvasively monitor crew for extended periods of time. The Canadian Space Agency is working with the Psychophysiology Lab at NASA ARC to determine if the Astroskin could be used as a solution to this problem. Astroskin, a commercially available garment with built-in biosensors, can be comfortably worn under clothing...

This report presents the results of conceptual design studies and reliability analyses as part of a comprehensive study program to evaluate the technological and economic feasibility of utilizing open- and closed-cycle gas turbines integrated with fossil or nuclear heat sources for providing advanced lightweight propulsion power for future Navy capital ship applications. The level of technology considered is that judged by the Contractor to be available during the 1990's.

This CP contains 40 papers presented at the Second International Microgravity Combustion Workshop held in Cleveland, OH, from September 15 to 17, 1992. The purpose of the workshop was twofold: to exchange information about the progress and promise of combustion science in microgravity and to provide a forum to discuss which areas in microgravity combustion science need to be expanded profitably and which should be included in upcoming NASA Research Announcements (NRA).

Space industrialization is confronting space law with problems that are changing old and shaping new legal principles. The return to the Moon, the next logical step beyond the space station, will establish a permanent human presence there. Science and engineering, manufacturing and mining will involve the astronauts in the settlement of the solar system. These pioneers, from many nations, will need a legal, political, and social framework to structure their lives and interactions. International...

This thesis analyzes the superconducting technology for a shipboard magnetohydrodynamic propulsion system. Based on the the principles of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), the concept of open water efficiency was used to optimize the preliminary design of the MHD thruster. After the baseline submarine hull, modeled after the Los Angeles class submarine, was selected propulsive efficiency and the top speed for four variant MHD submarines were evaluated. The design criteria were set at a 100 MWt...

The satellite power system is assessed in comparison to six alternative technologies. The alternatives are: central-station terrestrial photovoltaic systems, conventional coal-fired power plants, coal-gasification/combined-cycle power plants, light water reactor power plants, liquid-metal fast-breeder reactors, and fusion. The comparison is made regarding issues of cost and performance, health and safety, environmental effects, resources, socio-economic factors, and institutional issues. The...

Five reactor cooling concepts which allow continued reactor operation following a single rupture of the coolant system are presented for application with the APR. These concepts incorporate convective cooling, double containment, or heat pipes to ensure operation after a coolant line rupture. Based on an evaluation of several control system concepts, a molybdenum clad, beryllium oxide sliding reflector located outside the pressure vessel is recommended.

The SP-100 is an electrical generating nuclear power system for space operation. This paper describes the nuclear reactor control systems and the methods used to assure reliable performance for the 10-year design life. Reliable performance is achieved by redundancy and by selecting highly reliable components and design features. Reliability is quantified by analysis using established reliability data. Areas lacking reliability data are identified for development testing. A specific development...

A modular, multi-reactor power system and vehicle configuration for piloted nuclear electric propulsion (NEP) missions to Mars is presented. Such a design could provide enhanced system and mission reliability, allowing a comfortable safety margin for early manned flights, and would allow a range of piloted and cargo missions to be performed with a single power system design. Early use of common power modules for cargo missions would also provide progressive flight experience and validation of...

LOITA (Lunar Optical/Infrared Telescope Array) is a lunar-based interferometer composed of 18 alt-azimuth telescopes arranged in a circular geometry. This geometry results in excellent uv coverage and allows baselines up to 5 km long. The angular resolution will be 25 micro-arcsec at 500 nm and the main spectral range of the array will be 200 to 1100 nm. For infrared planet detection, the spectral range may be extended to nearly 10 mu m. The telescope mirrors have a Cassegrain configuration...

Over the past decade, Virtual Environment (VE)-based training systems have become commonplace within the military training domain. These systems offer such benefits as small footprint, rapid reconfiguration, and enhanced training delivery. In addition, they appear to offer significant relief for a market starved for low cost training systems, and hold great potential as effective training tools. Yet, all too often the human element is taken for granted, with systems being designed to...
