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. A Novel, Ultra-Light, Heat Rejection System for Nuclear Power Generation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X802

    For lunar-based fission power systems that will support In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) or Mars robotic and manned missions, power requirements may vary from 10s to 100s of kWe to support initial human missions and longer term lunar bases. Due to the large amounts of waste heat generated by these systems, a key consideration is the development of lightweight, highly efficient heat rejection s ...

  2. Lightweight, Flexible, and Freezable Heat Pump/Radiator for EVA Suits

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X1101

    Manned lunar exploration will require extravehicular activity (EVA) suits that surpass existing technology. We propose an innovative thermal control system for EVA suits that uses an absorption heat pump with a flexible radiator that offers reduced size, lighter weight, conformability, rugged construction, and freeze tolerance. The heat pump absorbs a crew member's metabolic heat and rejects it ...

  3. Efficient, Long-Life Biocidal Condenser

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X1101

    Environmental control systems for manned lunar and planetary bases will require condensing heat exchangers to control humidity in manned modules. Condensing surfaces must be hydrophilic to ensure efficient operation and biocidal to prevent growth of microbes in the moist, condensing environment. The coatings must be extremely stable and adhere to the condensing surface for many years. We propos ...

  4. Lightweight Magnetic Cooler with a Reversible Circulator

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S403

    NASA's future missions to investigate the structure and evolution of the universe require highly efficient, very low temperature coolers for low-noise detector systems. We propose to develop a highly efficient, lightweight space magnetic cooler that can continuously provide remote/distributed cooling at temperatures in the range of 2 K with a heat sink at about 15 K. The proposed magnetic cooler ...

  5. Spectrally-Tunable Infrared Camera Based on Highly-Sensitive Quantum Well Infrared Photodetectors

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S402

    We propose to develop a SPECTRALLY-TUNABLE INFRARED CAMERA based on quantum well infrared photodetector (QWIP) focal plane array (FPA) technology. This will build on the handheld QWIP camera we DELIVERED to NASA in Phase 1 which featured a 320x256 QWIP FPA with fixed spectral response, as proof of this novel sensor technology. Phase 2 will broaden spectral coverage (~ 6 - 12 microns), expand arra ...
