The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. GaAs JFETs for Extremely Low-Noise, Deep Cryogenic Sensor Readout

    SBC: GPD Optoelectronics Corporation            Topic: S104

    Ultrasensitive sensors used in NASAs scientific missions (for example infrared sensors) typically require operation at deep cryogenic temperatures for optimum performance. However, to make full use of their performance requires an ultralow-noise preamplifier co-located in the same, or a nearby, cryogenic environment at liquid-helium (~1-4 K) or sub-Kelvin temperatures. A severe impediment to makin ...

  2. Very Low-Cost, Rugged, High-Vacuum System for Mass Spectrometers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S109

    NASA, DoD, DHS, and commercial industry have a pressing need for miniaturized, rugged, low-cost high-vacuum systems. Recent advances in sensor technology at NASA and other government laboratories, in academia, and in industry have led to the development of very small mass spectrometer detectors as well as other analytical instruments such as scanning electronic microscopes. However, the vacuum s ...

  3. The Affordable Pre-Finishing of Silicon Carbide for Optical Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S205

    Creare proposes to develop a novel, laser-assisted, pre-finishing process for chemical vapor deposition (CVD) coated silicon-carbide ceramics. Our innovation will enable the affordable single-point turning of CVD silicon carbide from a near-net shape blank to a pre-finished aspheric optic. We will use our extensive experience and expertise in the advanced machining of ceramics to establish the p ...

  4. Advanced, Long-Life Cryocooler Technology for Zero-Boil-Off Cryogen Storage

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X901

    Long-life, high-capacity cryocoolers are a critical need for future space systems utilizing stored cryogens. The cooling requirements for planetary and extraterrestrial exploration missions, Crew Exploration Vehicles, extended-life orbital transfer vehicles, and space depots will range from 10 to 50 W at temperatures between 20 and 120 K. Turbo-Brayton cryocoolers are ideal for these systems bec ...
