  1. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...

  2. Electrochemical Capacitor Development for Pulsed Power Communications


    In this NASA Phase II SBIR Project, we will continue the development of graphitic nanosheets (GNS) for electrochemical capacitor (EC) electrode materials. In the Phase I project, treatments of the electrode materials resulted in increases of relative capacitance (2x), relative energy (4x), and relative power (25%). These results surpassed those of commercially available ECs for relative power and ...

  3. Flexible, Lightweight, Low-Cost Organic Photovoltaics with Improved Efficiency

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: S303

    Both manned and unmanned off-Earth missions of the future will require very lightweight, inexpensive, high efficiency, flexible and single-use photovoltaic (PV) arrays to generate electric power. Current PV technology horizons do not meet the requirements for expanded mission capability. Although inorganic PVs hold the record for solar power conversion efficiency, they are inflexible, heavy, and ...

  4. Surface Optimization Techniques for Deployable Reflectors


    Under this and several other programs, CTD has developed TEMBOREG deployable solid-surface reflectors (TEMBOREG Reflectors) to provide future NASA and Air Force missions and commercial communications satellites with large RF apertures that can operate at very high operational frequencies (Ka band and above). TEMBOREG Reflectors incorporate non-tensioned graphite composite membranes that are forme ...

  5. Efficient Space Hardy Thermoelectric Materials with Broad Temperature Range


    The goal of this work is to develop new thermoelectric materials for use in fabricating solid state cooling devices and electrical power generators, which are 200 to 300% more efficient than current thermoelectric materials and can operate in temperatures ranging from cryogenic to 700 C. The results of our Phase I definitely indicate that we will be able to reach this goal. These materials are b ...

  6. Software Defined Multiband EVA Radio

    SBC: Lexycom Technologies, Inc.            Topic: O106

    The objective of Phase 2 is to build a reliable, lightweight, programmable, multi-mode, miniaturized EVA Software Defined Radio (SDR) that supports data telemetry, voice, standard and high-definition video. The proposed radios would be part of an advanced, incrementally expandable wireless network for securing and accessing lunar data assets. For improved reliability and to assure stand-alone fun ...

  7. Turbopump Design for Deep Throttling Capability

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: T802

    This project will demonstrate the benefits of a partial emission pump coupled with a zero net positive suction pressure inducer design to achieve robust, deep throttling capability. This pump application is well suited for 5k to 15k lbf thrust range rocket engines.

  8. Nitrous Oxide Fuel Blend-Continuous Operation Lunar Thruster (NOFB-COLT)

    SBC: Firestar Engineering, LLC            Topic: X903

    Firestar Engineering has developed a set of Nitrous Oxide Fuel Blend monopropellants that are: 1) Non-toxic, 2) Specific Impulse> 310 s, 3) Freezing point < -77 C, 4) Self Pressurizing, and 5) Highly throttleable. A monopropellant with these characteristics and with bipropellant performance has the power to revolutionize both private and government space initiatives. Applications which will b ...

  9. High Temperature Energy Storage for In Situ Planetary Atmospheric Measurement Technologies

    SBC: Mobile Energy Products, Inc.            Topic: S501

    Development of energy storage capable of operational temperatures of 380ºC and 486oC with a specific capacity 200 Wh/kg for use as a power source on the Venusian surface and for planetary probes in similar high temperature atmospheres and where ambient pressures of 90 atmospheres are to be expected. This proposal provides for further research and development of the Li(Al)/CoS2 high temperature e ...

  10. Lunar Sulfur Capture System

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: X501

    The Lunar Sulfur Capture System (LSCS) is an innovative method to capture greater than 90 percent of sulfur gases evolved during thermal treatment of lunar soils. LSCS sorbents are based on lunar soil iron compounds that trap sulfur contained in hot in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) product gases. Small amounts of polishing sorbents are used as needed to reduce equilibrium sulfur concentrations ...
