  1. Properties Investigation of High-MON Oxidizers and MMH Blends for Use in Deep Space Exploration

    SBC: Frontier Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T9

    The REFPROP program developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a widely-used database for industrial fluid properties, including propellants used for chemical rocket propulsion.nbsp; For deep space applications, low-temperature propellants are of particular interest but accurate fluid property data was scarce or unavailable to the industry.nbsp; Recently, NASA MSFC h ...

  4. Efficient CO2 and H2O Removal with Novel Adsorbentsfor Life Support Applications on Mars

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T6

    Phase II work will build upon results of Phase I investigations into the performance of cooperative adsorbents for life-support on Mars. The work will focus on the creating of a prototype EMU unit sized to support a single person (1 kg/day of CO2 removal. Tasks in support of this effort include in depth investigations of the role of water on CO2 adsorption mechanism. Improved pellet formulations w ...

  5. Integrated Photonic Filters for RF Signal Processing

    SBC: OEWAVES, INC.            Topic: T8

    In this Project, OEwaves Inc. and Georgia Tech propose to research and develop an RF photonic receiver front-end enabling microwave signal processing at a heterogeneously integrated photonic platform. In particular, we propose to develop a new technology for photonic microwave filters based on the new advances in silicon (Si)-based integrated photonics. In this endeavor, we will exploit the expert ...

  6. Integrated Mid-Infrared Sources Enabled by Waveguides Written with Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: AKTIWAVE LLC            Topic: T8

    This proposal addresses, for the first time, the demonstration of integrated mid-infrared sources based on waveguiding in a bonded solid-state laser material and periodically poled nonlinear material. A focused femtosecond laser beam allows for precisely localized modification of the refractive index of a material, therefore enabling to create waveguiding structures. The offeror has demonstrated f ...
