  1. Tools and Materials for Hands-On Climate and Weather Science Education

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The majority of students and educators would probably agree that students are better able to grasp scientific concepts from the use of hands-on activities and other inquiry-based educational practices than from typical lecture problem solving methods. Anasphere, Inc is working to make inquiry based tools and materials for weather and climate education more readily available for students and educat ...

  2. SoundCompass- A Wearable Sound Direction and Motion Detector for People who are Hard of Hearing

    SBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project researches, develops, and demonstrates the technical merit and feasibility of awearable device which (1) detects the direction of a sound source or motion, and (2) alerts the user viavibration, images, and captions to the direction of this sound source or movement relative to the currentposition of the individual. This provides the user with a sense of independence and personal safety ...

  3. Active Vibration Isolation System for Mobile Launch Platform Ground Support Equipment

    SBC: Balcones Technologies LLC            Topic: T602

    Balcones Technologies, proposes to adapt actively controlled suspension technology developed for high performance off-road vehicles to address NASA's requirement for Active Vibration Control for Ground Support Equipment (GSE). This innovative approach to meeting NASA needs exploits approximately $23M of highly successful R&D since 1993 at the University of Texas Center for Electromechanics (CEM) ...

  4. Efficient Radiation Simulation in Complex Geometries with Applications to Planetary Entry

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A206

    NASA aerocapture missions require an accurate evaluation of radiative thermal transport in order to simulate the aerothermal environment around space vehicles. However, present day computation of radiative transport in this complex multi-dimensional environment is frequently done using simple one-dimensional tangent-slab approximations or optically-thick approximations which compromise the accura ...

  5. Compact, Lightweight, Efficient Cooling Pump for Space Suit Life Support Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: X402

    With the increasing demands placed on extravehicular activity (EVA) for the International Space Station assembly and maintenance, along with planned lunar and Martian missions, the need for increased human productivity and capability becomes ever more critical. This is most readily achieved by reduction in space suit weight and volume, and increased hardware reliability, durability, and operating ...

  6. High Performance Ka-band Phase Shifters for Space Telecommunications

    SBC: MEMtronics Corporation            Topic: T404

    We propose a novel MEMS-based digital phase shifter targeted for Ka-band operation, but scalable down to X-band and up to W-band. This novel phase shifter will incorporate MEMtronics' state-of-the-art microencapsulated, capacitive MEMS switches to control phase. The envisioned phase shifter behaves much like a switched-line phase shifter with broadband matched impedance, but without sacrificing ...

  7. Coordinated Mobile Manipulation for Robotics Material Handling

    SBC: Metrica, Inc.            Topic: T502

    Robots will be precursors to human exploration of the lunar surface. They will be expected to prepare the lunar surface for human habitation as well as conduct scientific investigations. As humans arrive, first for short-term stays, the robots should be able to shift to providing direct assistance to human exploration activities. Such tasks require a new generation of robotic vehicles – a gener ...

  8. Non Intrrusive, On-line, Simultaneous Multi-Species Impurity Monitor in Hydrogen

    SBC: Mississippi Ethanol, LLC            Topic: T901

    The purity of hydrogen fuel is important in engine testing at SSC. The hydrogen may become contaminated with nitrogen, argon, or oxygen. The hydrogen from the fuel tanks or feed lines is analyzed beforehand. Therefore, there is a need for a non-intrusive, on-line, near real-time monitor for H2. The analytical technique should measure various impurities (molecular and atomic) simultaneously and be ...

  9. A Medipix-Based Small Personal Space Radiation Dosimeter

    SBC: Nano EnerTex            Topic: X1401

    This SBIR effort will take the first step in improving the existing Medipix dosimeter technology in terms of advancing the technique now used to couple the actual sensitive detector material to the underlying readout electronics. Prototypes of current Medipix2-based devices have been developed using "bump-bonding" techniques, and we will improve this design by employing direct epitaxial depositio ...

  10. Radiation Hard Multi-Layer Optical Coatings

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: S204

    Next generation space telescopes require advanced optical coatings to provide low loss transmission of light in a variety of spectral ranges and protect optical components from damage in a space environment. In this SBIR program Nanohmics proposes to examine uses of amorphous nitrides and oxides as a high quality, long lived coating for production of wide-acceptance angle IR anti-reflection and b ...
