  1. Active Radiation Shield

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: T301

    In the Phase I effort, Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories LLC (GTL) verified the feasibility of generating power from space particle radiation.  This effort successfully demonstrated electrical power production from a particle radiation source using an initial proof-of-concept device.  The effort also identified a second approach that has the potential for even better power generation and offers ...

  2. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  3. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  4. Color-XHDR- A Compact High-Speed Color Extreme High Dynamic Range Video Capability for Rocket Engine Testing

    SBC: INNOVATIVE IMAGING & RESEARCH CORP            Topic: H1002

    Innovative Imaging and Research proposes to develop a 21st Century color, high-speed extreme high dynamic range (Color-XHDR) video recording technology that will produce engineering-grade video to accurately document rocket motor firings at close range within a test cell without image saturation. This novel imaging system will include a compact, single focal plane array camera and end-to-end image ...

  5. ERASMUS: Food Contact Safe Plastics Recycler and 3D Printer System

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H1401

    A key goal of the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) from 2012 is to utilize the ISS for developing the systems and protocols necessary to humans to venture beyond low Earth orbit for extended durations, and with the push from Congress in 2015 to build a deep space habitat for a Mars mission by 2018, the goals of HEOMD are increasingly important to meet. The ERASMUS techn ...

  6. High Power, Thermally Optimized Blue Laser for Lidar

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S101

    To enable widespread and rapid airborne bathymetric lidar to adequate depths in many ocean regions a low-cost, rugged, and high energy pulsed laser source must be developed in the ocean water transmittance spectrum of 450 - 490 nm. The ideal laser source will be high performance for lidar (high pulse energy, high rep rate, short pulse duration) with specific targeted emission spectrum to meet ocea ...

  7. Investigating an Instrument for Measurement of Hyperspectral Backscattering in Natural Waters

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: S108

    The remote sensing reflectance signal measured by an ocean color satellite is to first order proportional to the ratio of backscattered to absorbed light. Therefore in situ measurements of absorption and backscattering, as functions of wavelength, along with in situ and satellite radiometery, are key to refinement and calibration of legacy ocean color algorithms, as well as development of next gen ...

  8. Ka-Band Electronically Steered CubeSat Antenna

    SBC: Kymeta Government Solutions, Inc.            Topic: H902

    Kymeta Government Solutions (KGS) designed, analyzed, built, tested, and delivered a small, lightweight, low-cost, low-power electronically steered Ka-band prototype antenna subsystem module (ASM) intended for use on 3U or larger CubeSats. This antenna uses a tunable dielectric material and an array of radiating elements to create an interference pattern that steers the beam in the desired directi ...

  9. LENA Conversion Foils Using Single-Layer Graphene

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: S105

    Implementing graphene foils in existing neutral atom detector designs will increase their angular and energy resolution, and also improve their mass discrimination and usable energy range. Graphene atomic uniformity and low mass density offer natural advantages over amorphous carbon foils in time-of-flight instruments. We expect that Phase II will yield flight-ready prototype foils available for r ...

  10. Lunar Spectral Irradiance Monitor

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S103

    The purpose of this effort is to develop an instrument to accurately calibrate (1% k=2) the lunar spectral reflectance (350 to 2,300 nm) at relatively low expense from a small satellite. Assuming the TSIS missions are successful and the solar irradiance is known, the lunar spectral reflectance can be used to provide known lunar irradiance, thereby providing a stable exo-atmospheric calibration sou ...
