  1. A Robust Biofilm-Biomat Reactor for Conversion of Mission-Relevant Feedstocks to Products

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: T7

    Sustainable Bioproducts (SB) proposes to develop an encapsulated biofilm-biomat reactor that will efficiently convert mission relevant feedstocks to usable products under zero gravity conditions. The bioreactor will be based on SB’s proprietary fermentation platform for converting a wide variety of waste streams into a multitude of usable products. SB’s bioreactor platform is simple, d ...

  2. Feedback Sensors for Closed Loop Additive In-Space Manufacturing

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: H7

    This solicitation calls for online quality control to be applied to In-Space Manufactured (ISM) additive manufactured parts.  Our proposed approach is integrated precision scanning of the additive manufactured (AM) parts and feedback of that data back into AM layer by layer process control.  The goal is to augment Space Manufacturing AM process controls with verifiable feedback enabling ...

  3. Ultra-Compact, Field-Deployable, Quantum-Compatible Receiver for Free-Space Optical Communication

    SBC: Quantum Opus, LLC            Topic: H9

    Quantum Opus is excited to propose compactifying, enclosing, and automating ALL of the required vacuum, cryogenics, and electrical systems of a superconducting nanowire single-photon detection system into a 14-inch tall by 17-inch wide by 18-inch deep package and re-engineering the optical collection mechanisms to be compatible with existing NASA telescope infrastructure. The end product will be a ...

  5. ARCSTONE Improvements

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase I effort will be devoted to exploring possible improvements for the NASA ARCSTONE instrument. One possible improvement will be to utilize total internal reflection optics for the fore-optics of the system. Possible benefits include reduced polarization and smaller size. A second possible improvement will be to use an optical design that requires only one focal plane array for the e ...

  6. Low-Cost Mixed-Phase Cloud Characterization Sensor Suite

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S1

    Radiative transfer properties of clouds play an important role in the energy balance of the Earth.  Numerous NASA programs and experiments are directed to measuring these effects.  In-situ measurements are critical for supporting satellite-borne instruments.  While research aircraft carry the best in-situ instruments, the aircraft and instruments are too expensive to provide suffici ...

  7. Integrated Silicon Carbide Electronics for Venus Surface Actuation

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S4

    NASA has demonstrated a resolve for a flagship mission in the coming years to revisit Venus and land instruments on the surface. Venus has a corrosive, high-pressure (~100 bar), high-temperature (470°C) environment. A motor drive is the major theme that runs through the most critical needs for optimum geological and atmospheric exploration on Venus.An electronically-controlled motor, operating ...

  8. A 128-Channel Compact VUV Spectrometer for Wide-Temperature Entry Descent & Landing Sensing Applications

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: Z7

    NASA manned and robotic missions to the surface of planetary or airless bodies require Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL). For many of these missions, EDL represents one of the riskiest phases of the mission. Despite the criticality of the EDL phase, NASA has historically gathered limited engineering data from such missions, and use of the data for real-time Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN& ...

  9. Dust-Free Fabrication of Uranium and Plutonium Oxide Powders for Radioisotope Systems, Nuclear Thermal Rockets, Nuclear Electric Propulsion, and Surface Power Reactors

    SBC: Amphionic LLC            Topic: Z10

    This SBIR project will develop a manufacturing method for nuclear fuels that can be universally applied for space-power systems that utilizes a dust-free uranium oxide production unit.  For the particular application to nuclear thermal propulsion, in which one wishes, (1) to maximize hydrogen propellant heating, and (2) to reduce fission product gas release and reactor particulates into ...

  10. Frequency Agile Seed Laser for Orbital Doppler-Shift Compensation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S1

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort is to develop a frequency-agile, stand-alone, space-hardened diode-based seed laser with options for locking and frequency agility to compensate for doppler shift during orbit. This US-manufactured platform will be applicable for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for high-priority-designated aerosol missions (single- and multi-chann ...
