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 Turbo-Brayton Cryocooler for Aircraft Superconducting Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A201

    Hybrid turboelectric aircraft with gas turbines driving electric generators connected to electric propulsion motors have the potential to transform the aircraft design space by decoupling power generation from propulsion. Resulting aircraft designs such as blended-wing bodies with distributed propulsion can provide the large reductions in emissions, fuel burn, and noise required to make air trans ...

  2. A Novel Plasma-Based Compressor Stall Control System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A308

    Modern aircraft gas turbine engines utilize highly loaded airfoils in both the compressor and turbine to maximize performance while minimizing weight, cost, and complexity. However, high airfoil loading increases the likelihood of flow separation at lower mass flow rates. Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) plasma actuators have been shown to be a very promising technique for compressor stall con ...

  3. A Reliable, Efficient Cryogenic Propellant Mixing Pump with No Moving Parts

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H201

    Refueling spacecraft in space offers tremendous benefits for increased spacecraft payload capacity and reduced launch cost. A key technology challenge for space refueling is the storage of liquid cryogenic fuel in space. To meet this need, we propose to develop a reliable, compact, efficient cryogenic mixing pump with no moving parts. The mixing pump will prevent thermal stratification of the c ...

  4. Turbo-Brayton Power Converter for Spaceflight Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H803

    Future NASA space missions require advanced systems to convert thermal energy into electric power. These systems must be reliable, efficient, and lightweight. In response, we propose to develop a turbo-Brayton power converter with high efficiency and specific power. The converter will use gas bearings to provide reliable, maintenance-free, long-life operation. It will also consist of discrete ...

  5. Lightweight Superconducting Magnets for Low Temperature Magnetic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S106

    NASA's future science missions to investigate the structure and evolution of the universe require efficient, very low temperature coolers for low noise detector systems. We propose to develop a highly efficient, lightweight Active Magnetic Regenerative Refrigeration (AMRR) system that can continuously provide remote/distributed cooling at temperatures of about 2 K with a heat sink at about 1 ...

  6. Ultra-Miniaturized Star Tracker for Small Satellite Attitude Control

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: T801

    Creare and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University propose to design, develop, test, and deliver an ultra compact star tracker specifically intended for small satellites such as the CubeSat platform. Our design is based on proprietary "folded optics" technology previously developed by our partner for use in military and commercial optical applications that require a compact ...

  7. High Quantum Efficiency 1024x1024 Longwave Infrared SLS FPA and Camera

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S104

    We propose a high quantum efficiency (QE) 1024x1024 longwave infrared focal plane array (LWIR FPA) and CAMERA with ~ 12 micron cutoff wavelength made from bandgap-engineered Type-II InAs/GaSb strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes. FPA/camera performance goals include QE>50% and temporal noise equivalent difference in temperature (NEDT)<30 mK while operating at a temperature>60K w ...

  8. Miniaturized Variable-Pressure Scanning Electron Microscope

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: E103

    NASA has recognized the need to develop new on-orbit analysis capabilities. This need arises because of the high cost associated with returning samples to Earth for analysis, the limited availability of crew time, and the relatively modest capabilities and interfaces of the existing hardware on the International Space Station (ISS). The goal of this project is the development of a miniature vari ...

  9. Renewable Long-Life Biocidal Hydrophilic Coating for Condensing Heat Exchangers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H303

    Future manned spacecraft and lunar or Mars outposts will need a condensing heat exchanger (CHX) to control humidity in the cabin atmosphere. Condensing surfaces must be hydrophilic to control the condensate flow and ensure efficient operation, and biocidal to prevent growth of microbes and formation of biofilms on condensing surfaces. Coatings must be extremely stable, adhere to the condensing s ...

  10. Water Recovery for Regenerative Life Support Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X304

    Thermal and environmental control systems for future exploration spacecraft must meet challenging requirements for efficient operation and conservation of resources. Regenerative CO2 removal systems are attractive for these missions because they do not use consumable CO2 absorbers. However, these systems also absorb and vent water to space along with the carbon dioxide. We propose to develop an ...
