  1. Distributed Electric Propulsion Aircraft Comprehensive Analysis and Design Tool

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: T15

    A key goal of the current NASA ARMD Strategic Plan is to achieve Low Carbon Emissions through use of alternative propulsion systems such as electric/hybrid propulsion.  In this regard, NASA’s STTR solicitation seeks innovative approaches in designing and analyzing Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) aircraft to support ARMD’s Strategic Thrust #3 (Ultra-Efficient Commercial Vehic ...

  2. Superconducting Coils for Small Nuclear Fusion Rocket Engines

    SBC: PRINCETON SATELLITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T2

    This proposal focuses on the superconducting coils subsystem, a critical subsystem for the PFRC reactor and Direct Fusion Drive and other fusion and electric propulsion technologies. Our strategy for PFRC has evolved since our Phase I proposal, and we now propose a hybrid magnet approach: a combination of so-called “dry” conduction-cooled low-temperature (LTS) superconductor magnets an ...

  3. Volume Sensor for Flexible Fluid Reservoirs in Microgravity

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: T6

    The Advanced Space Suit carries consumable cooling water maintained at ambient pressure within a soft-walled, flexible reservoir. To ensure uninterrupted thermal control it is critical to monitor the volume of water remaining, but no known sensor is suitable for this task. Existing measurement techniques are unacceptably sensitive to the motion and varying geometry of the reservoir in microgravity ...

  4. Si-Based Lab-on-A-Chip Integrated Photonic Spectrometer

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: T8

    In this STTR Phase I program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and Arizona State University (ASU) will develop a SiGeSn based light emitter device technology on Si, which will be a key ingredient for Si-based integrated photonics applications, such as in lab-on-a-chip integrated chemical and biological spectrometers for landers, astronaut health monitoring, front-end and back-end for re ...

  5. Integrated Icing Detection Filter for On-Demand Aircraft

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: A1

    New classes of aircraft, providing personal, on-demand mobility, are under development and are poised to revolutionize short-duration air travel.  The impetus for this work comes from advances in electronics and controls, and increases in electric motor power densities.  As these aircraft are integrated into the transportation system, they will encounter icing conditions that may challen ...

  6. Multi-Spectral Infrared Focal Plane Array For Wildfire And Burning-Biomass Analysis

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S1

    An important NASA mission is to remotely analyze fires, such as wildfires and burning biomasses, for their chemical content. The chemical species of most interest have infrared spectral signatures at wavelengths ranging from 1.5 microns to 12 microns. A broadband infrared focal plane array (FPA) with that spectral coverage and high quantum efficiency is a key technology to enable this mission. Qma ...

  7. Optically Interrogated Thin Film Strain Gauge for Balloon

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S3

    To support development of atmospheric balloons and gossamer structures, NASA requires a capability for real-time, dynamic strain measurement in thin polymeric membranes during deployment and flight.  This capability will provide quantitative test data to inform balloon design efforts, as well as enable real-time monitoring of material state during flight.  Existing technologies include w ...

  8. High Efficiency 4 K Cryocooler for Space Missions

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S1

    Future astrophysics missions require efficient, low-temperature cryocoolers to cool advanced instruments or serve as the upper stage cooler for sub-Kelvin refrigerators. Potential astrophysics missions include Lynx, the Origin Space Telescope, and the Superconducting Gravity Gradiometer. Cooling loads for these missions are up to 300 mW at temperatures of 4 to 10 K, with additional loads at higher ...

  9. ASOMIS

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: S5

    The innovation of the Agricultural SOil Moisture and Irrigation Status (A·SOM·IS) platform is the development of operational and moderate resolution mapping and assessment of soil moisture, irrigation status (irrigated vs not), and crop water stress metrics at field scale for agricultural decision support tools. The platform focuses on utilization of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) an ...

  10. A Compact, Lightweight Electrically Driven Propellant Pump with High Pressure Rise

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S4

    Reducing the inert mass of propulsion systems in sample return spacecraft will reduce their launch costs and increase opportunity for these missions. Compared to a pressure-fed system, a propellant pump-fed system can significantly reduce overall propulsion system mass, especially for a system with high propellant throughput. To address this need, we propose to develop a compact, lightweight elect ...
