  1. 200W Deep Space CubeSat Composite Beam Roll-Up Solar Array (COBRA)

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: H501

    Solar arrays that have very high specific power (W/kg) and compact stowed volume (W/m3), while still providing shielding to the solar cell, are an enabling technology for Deep Space CubeSat missions. Current CubeSat and small satellite solar arrays employ either fixed panels mounted directly to the Satellite side-wall(s) or small hinged rigid panels. These arrays generate very low power (4-20W) ...

  2. A Compact Medical Oxygen Generator for Spacecraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: X1001

    An on-board oxygen concentrator is required during long duration manned space missions to supply medical oxygen. Commercial medical oxygen generators are pressure swing adsorption (PSA) based systems that use nitrogen selective zeolites and are mostly large, massive, and power intensive. TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) proposes to develop a small, lightweight, portable oxygen generator that uses a high c ...

  5. A NEW MACHINE ARCHITECTURE FOR STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS

    SBC: Space Tech Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT INVOLVES DEVELOPMENT OF A FAST, NOVEL, SCIENTIFIC WORKSTATION FOR SOLVING AEROPROPULSION SYSTEM STRUCTURES WITH CYCLIC SYMMETRY EXHIBITING NONLINEAR RESPONSE IN HIGH TEMPERATURES. AN ENGINEERING STUDY WILL MAP EFFICIENT ALGORITHMS ONTO NEW PARALLEL ARCHITECTURE THAT IS EXTENSIBLE ACROSS BOTH THE SIMD AND MIMD DESIGN PARADIGM. A SIGNIFICANT FEATURE OF THE APPROACH IS THE COUPLING OF THE ...

  6. A NOVEL LASER SYSTEM FOR FORECASTING AND MITIGATING LIGHTNING STRIKES

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL SCHEME FOR PROVIDING A PREFERENTIAL PATH THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE ALONG WHICH LIGHTNING WILL TRAVEL IS PROPOSED. THE WORK WILL THEORETICALLY ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A HIGH ENERGY PULSED LASER OPERATING IN THE ULTRAVIOLET (AT A WAVELENGTH NEVER BEFORE USED) TO MULTIPHOTON IONIZE TRACE ATMOSPHERIC CONSTITUENTS TO ACTUALLY TRIGGER LIGHTNING STRIKES DOWN THE LASER IONIZED PATH. THIS DEVI ...

  7. A Ruggedized UAS for Scientific Data Gathering in Harsh Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: S304

    Black Swift Technologies proposes the development of the SuperSwift XT, a novel small Unmanned Aircraft System that meets the sensing needs required for responding to or monitoring volcanic ash clouds. This tightly integrated system will consist of an airframe, avionics, and sensors specifically designed to measure selected gases and atmospheric properties. It is based on the commercial SuperSwift ...

  8. Advanced Chemically-Based Actuation for Active Flow Control

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A104

    The proposed SBIR program by Virtual AeroSurface Technologies (VAST) focuses on the development of a novel variant of pulsed blowing active flow control in which chemically-based flow control actuators are utilized to create high-impulse pulsed jets from discrete reaction chambers with a flowable propellant mixture provided to each. Chemically-based actuation is capable of producing high-impulse ...

  9. Advanced Mars Water Acquisition System

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: H102

    The Advanced Mars Water Acquisition System (AMWAS) recovers and purifies water from Mars soils for oxygen and fuel production, life support, food production, and radiation shielding in support of human exploration missions. The AMWAS removes water from Mars soils using hot, recirculating carbon dioxide gas to provide rapid heat transfer. The AMWAS evaporates water from ice and salt hydrates, leavi ...

  10. Advanced Technology Cloud Particle Probe for UAS

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA has initiated a program to explore the upper troposphere/lower stratosphere (UT/LS) using the Global Hawk Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), which has a payload of over 1500 lb (680 kg), max ceiling of 65,000 ft (20 km) at a cruising speed of 335 kts and mission endurance of over 31 hours. These attributes make the Global Hawk UAS especially valuable as a tool for investigating subvisible cirrus ...
