  1. Graspable Math Activities

    SBC: GRASPABLE INC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through previous grant awards from IES, researchers developed Graspable Math, a tablet-based intervention where middle and high school students create and manipulate complex expressions for basic operations as well as equations and equations systems and inequalities. In this project, the team will develop a prototype of Graspable Math Activities, an app with novel kinds of algebra practice and ass ...

  2. Plug and Play: Utilizing MOFs in Preexisting Carbon Dioxide Removal Assemblies for Enhanced Performance, Smaller Footprint, and Lower Energy Consumption.

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T6

    Protection against the buildup of CO2 in spacecraft is of crucial importance to astronaut health. Currently, several methods are used to remove CO2 from spacecraft including amine scrubbers, lithium hydroxide canisters, and adsorbent-based carbon dioxide removal assemblies (CDRAs). Each scrubbing method has individual benefits and drawbacks: amine scrubbers have no particulate release but require ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Scalable and Distributed Inertial Navigation Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: T4

    Current state of the art inertial measurement units (IMUs) co-locate a set of accelerometers and gyroscopes into a single package. CU Aerospace (CUA), in partnership with the University of Illinois, propose to develop a scalable and distributed IMU for space robotics and CubeSat applications. The user can choose to include an arbitrary number of inertial sensors beyond the minimal number of sensor ...

  5. Integrated High Frequency Electric Propulsor for Turbo-Electric Aircraft

    SBC: HINETICS LLC            Topic: A1

    We propose the development of a very high specific power integrated electric turbofan directly driven with a high frequency, air-core synchronous motor. If the target specific power is achieved, this technology could increase the viability of turbo-electric airplanes for commercial air transport, leading to significantly lower carbon emissions and energy use in aviation. The key inn ...

  6. Chip-Scale Active Fast Light Gyroscope and Accelerometer using Integrated Photonic Technology

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S3

    The fast-light effect in a cavity, in the active or passive mode, has emerged as an important mechanism for enhancing the sensitivity of many devices.  Recently, we have been investigating the development of gyroscopes and accelerometers using the active mode, in which the cavity is a Fast-Light Ring Laser (FLRL).  Specifically, we have demonstrated, on a table-top, a pair of counter-pro ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Enabling High Efficiency I/O Performance on High-End Computing Systems and Data Stores with HDF5

    SBC: Akadio, Inc.            Topic: S5

    Akadio proposes to develop H5 Hermes, an enhancement to HDF5 to enable high efficiency I/O performance for HDF5 applications that perform many related reads and writes across large data structures. Such I/O operations are often a serious bottleneck for large scale simulations, resulting in I/O bottlenecks that significantly degrade overall performance.There are existing HDF5-based solutions simila ...

  10. Advancing Hyperspectral Imaging through IntegratedCompressive Sensing / Inpainting via Machine Learning

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: S5

    We propose to use advanced algorithms for compressive sensing (CS) using inpainting which utilize machine learning to improve the capability of existing or novel hyperspectral imaging (HSI) systems. These approaches will allow for an order of magnitude improvement in the frame acquisition speed of existing detectors at a high compression ratio with no loss of resolution, while at the same time per ...
