  1. Fine Water Mist Fire Extinguisher for Spacecraft

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1203

    This three phase SBIR project from ADA Technologies Inc. (ADA) builds upon the experience of ADA in development of fine water mist (FWM) fire suppression technology. ADA has subcontracted Colorado School of Mines (CSM) to provide expertise in fire scenarios in NASA's spacecraft; Spraying Systems for their expertise nozzle development, optimization, testing, and commercial manufacturing; and Pacif ...

  2. Implementation of Extreme STOL Capability in Cruise Efficient Aircraft

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: T202

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), will develop enabling technologies for an aircraft that is capable of Extreme Short Takeoff and Landing (ESTOL), while retaining efficient transonic cruise performance, by applying a comprehensive, systems-based design and analysis approach to innovative combinations of active flow control methodologies. The development of t ...

  3. Innovative CO2 Analyzer Technology for the Eddy Covariance Flux Monitor

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build and evaluate NDIR Analyzers that can observe eddy covariance flux of CO2 from unmanned airborne platforms. For both phases, a total of four analyzers are to be evaluated for their nose (ppb rms, Dry Mole Fraction) and susceptibility to artifacts on platform. We present original framework for their evaluation. It consists of expressions for their potential noises, artifacts and ...

  4. Cooled Bolometer IR Monolithic FPA

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: S401

    Future space-based observatories imaging in the 4-40 ìm spectral regime will be passively cooled. The objective of this research effort is to demonstrate near theoretical performance of bolometer-based infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) covering the 4-40 ìm wavelength region by operating the FPA at reduced temperature. Amorphous silicon-alloy resistive bolomoters exhibit increased temperature co ...

  5. Wide Output Range Power Processing Unit for Electric Propulsion


    A power supply concept capable of operation over 25:1 and 64:1 impedance ranges at full power has been successfully demonstrated in our Phase I effort at efficiencies of 96% and above. The benefits of electric propulsion systems are highest when an electric thruster can be operated at high efficiencies over wide ranges of thrust and specific impulse. Hall and ion thruster technologists are close ...

  6. High Efficiency Three Phase Resonant Conversion for Standardized Architecture Power System Applications


    A low-cost, standardized-architecture power system is proposed for NASA electric propulsion (EP) applications. Three approaches are combined to develop a system that will meet current and future NASA needs and exceed currently available power processor unit (PPU) performance in terms of electrical efficiency, specific mass (kg/kW), and cost. The approaches include the use of (a) high-efficiency ...

  7. Precision Hinge Actuator for Advanced Telescope Systems


    CTD proposes to investigate the deployment repeatability and microdynamic stability of a hinge and demonstration this repeatability in a deployable mirror test article, which incorporates the proposed precision self-locking hinge actuator. If successful, the proposed device will be substantially lighter, simpler, more robust, and more easily controlled than other state-of-the-art actuators for de ...

  8. Thermal Data Exchange Using International Standards

    SBC: Cullimore & Ring Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S706

    Spacecraft projects today consist of many different cooperating companies and institutions. The project members typically use different thermal design analysis software, making the vital exchange of data between team members difficult, costly, or impossible. One solution would be for everyone to use the same software, such that there would be no loss of data when exchanging models and predictions. ...

  9. Simple, Micro-Miniature Total Organic Carbon Analyzer


    Development of a simple method for on-orbit or advanced mission Total Organic Carbon (TOC) monitoring has been a goal for many years. This proposal seeks to develop a method that is, above all else, simple, inexpensive, and maintenance-free. Previous programs to develop flight hardware, including CHeCS, PCWQM, and previous SBIR-funded efforts, failed to produce workable hardware and were relativel ...

  10. Battery Diagnostics and Prognostics for Space Applications


    Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with Georgia Tech (Center for Fuel Cell and Battery Technologies) and our industrial partner, Eagle Pichers, proposes to develop and test the feasibility of a Battery Diagnostics and Prognostics System for space exploration applications. The architecture couples neural network, support vector machine, and fusion algorithms to yield battery rema ...
