The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Advanced Portable Fine Water Mist Fire Extinguisher for Spacecraft

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X205

    Fine water mist (FWM) is a promising replacement technology for fire suppression on the next generation of manned spacecraft. It offers advantages in performance, ease of cleanup, compatibility with on-board environmental systems, and ability to recharge during a mission. ADA Technologies has designed and built a prototype hand-held extinguisher that successfully extinguished test fires in an atmo ...

  2. High Fidelity, High Volume Agglutinate Manufacturing Process

    SBC: Zybek Advanced Products, Inc.            Topic: X602

    Up to 65% of the lunar soils are comprised of agglutinates. Although the importance of agglutinate in simulants is often debated, the fact is that agglutinates account for a large portion of the lunar soil and have known effects on final material properties. Increasing the fidelity of terrestrially manufactured simulant can reduce mission risk. Zybek Advanced Products, Inc., is proposing an i ...

  3. Calibration/Validation Technology for the CO2 Satellite

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: S1

    We are proposing to develop high altitude CO2 analyzer technology that can be deployed on the research aircraft of NASA's Airborne Science Program (ASP). The ultimate scientific goal is the calibration/validation of CO2 observations made from spacecraft. Two forms of the analyzer are to be developed, pod for unmanned aircraft and rack for more general purpose platforms. The CO2 payloads are small ...

  4. Thermopile Detector Radiation Hardened Readout

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: S109

    The Europa Jupiter System Mission (EJSM) will provide a better understanding as to how gas giant planets and their satellites form and evolve. The Jupiter Europa Orbiter (JEO) is the NASA element of the EJSM. JEO will be built to withstand the intense radiation in Europa orbit and the JEO payload includes a thermal instrument. The thermal instrument is based on thermopile detectors that are intrin ...

  5. Microwave Radiometer for Aviation Safety

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: A104

    SBIR Phase I Project proposes a new passive microwave airborne sensor for in flight icing hazard detection, Microwave Radiometer for Aviation Safety. A feasibility study of a relatively inexpensive, small in size, robust, energy efficient instrument with reliable calibration, easy to use, and with minimal maintenance requirement is proposed. Extensive radiative transfer modeling will be carried ou ...

  6. Hyperspectral Image Projector with Polarization Capability

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: S108

    This proposal outlines the development of a novel instrument for calibrating satellite based imaging sensors – the Polarization Hyperspectral Image Projector (PHIP). The PHIP instrument is capable of producing realistic, standards-based satellite imagery, simultaneously projecting spectral, spatial and polarization scenes. In this proposal, we offer to extend our current collaboration with NIS ...

  7. Coherent Optical Transceiver using Circular Polarization-Based Balanced Mixing

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: O105

    Boulder Nonlinear Systems (BNS) proposes to use its electro-optic component and subsystem expertise to transition a patented heterodyne detection scheme previously conceived by BNS for LIDAR to application in satellite based laser communications. The proposed effort will leverage past and present contracts in free space optical communication and space qualification of components. The proposed tra ...

  8. Low-Cost High-Performance Hall Thruster Support System

    SBC: COLORADO ELECTRONICS INC            Topic: S304

    Colorado Power Electronics is in the process of completing NASA SBIR contract NNC07CA12C Wide Output Range Power Processing Unit for Electric Propulsion. At the end of the project, we will have a complete brassboard PPU except for the Digital Control and Interface Unit (DCIU) and Flow Control Driver. The brassboard PPU meets the electrical requirements of the project, but the specific mass is ab ...

  9. Very Dense High Speed 3u VPX Memory and Processing Space Systems

    SBC: Seakr Engineering, Inc.            Topic: S401

    Today, memory and payload processing systems for space applications are typically designed for a specific application for a specific mission. Many of these systems do not employ a commercial standard which adversely affects the development costs, risks, and schedule while minimizing effective reuse of capabilities. Traditional commercial standards such as PCI are limited in bandwidth and reliabi ...

  10. Enabling Technology for Small Satellite Launch

    SBC: DESIGN NET ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: S401

    Access to space for Small Satellites is enabled by the use of excess launch capacity on existing launch vehicles. A range of sizes, form factors and masses of small sats need to be accommodated. An integration process that minimizes programmatic/technical risk to the primary, allows "late flow" integration and predictable cost/schedule for the secondary enables regular and cost-effective access. ...
