  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 ...

  4. A GIS Software Toolkit for Monitoring Areal Snow Cover and Producing Daily Hydrologic Forecasts using NASA Satellite Imagery

    SBC: Aniuk Consulting, LLC            Topic: S604

    Aniuk Consulting, LLC, proposes to create a GIS software toolkit for monitoring areal snow cover extent and producing streamflow forecasts. This toolkit will be packaged as multiple extensions for ArcGIS 9.2 and provides users with a means for easily ingesting NASA EOS satellite images (for snow cover analysis), preparing hydrologic model inputs, and visualizing streamflow forecasts. Primary pro ...

  5. Gas-Kinetic Computational Algorithms for Hypersonic Flows in Continuum and Transitional Regimes

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: A206

    This SBIR Phase I project explores two gas-kinetic computational algorithms for simulation of hypersonic flows in both continuum and transitional regimes. One is the gas-kinetic BGK-Burnett solver and the other is the gas-kinetic BGK solver with the regulated particle collision time. Different from the macroscopic Burnett approach, the proposed gas-kinetic BGK-Burnett solver is unconditionally sta ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. High-Fidelity Lunar Dust Simulant

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X704

    The severity of the lunar dust problems encountered during the Apollo missions were consistently underestimated by ground tests, illustrating the need to develop significantly better lunar dust simulants and simulation facilities. ORBITEC proposes to develop a family of High-Fidelity Lunar Dust Simulants that will better match the unique properties of lunar dust than existing simulants (such as JS ...

  9. A Super Cooled, Non-toxic, Non-flammable Phase Change Material Thermal Pack for Portable Life Support Systems

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X402

    The concept development and test of a water-based, advanced Phase Change Material (PCM) heat sink is proposed. Utilizing a novel material choice for both an expansion diaphragm and the PCM case itself, the PCM can accommodate both the expansion of the freezing water-based material and very low temperature of approximately -250F. The water-based PCM itself would be non-toxic and non-flammable, bu ...

  10. Metabolic Heat Regenerated Temperature Swing Adsorption for CO2, Thermal and Humidity Control

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X402

    Metabolic heat regenerated Temperature Swing Adsorption (MTSA) technology is proposed for a Portable Life Support System to remove and reject heat and carbon dioxide (CO2) regardless of the environment (lunar or Mars, vacuum or CO2), as well as to help control humidity in the ventilation loop. The basic principal is removal of metabolically-produced CO2 by an adsorbent with regeneration using a t ...
