  1. 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 ...

  2. Discrete Time State-Space Aeroservoelastic Modeling using FUN3D

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A1

    CFD-based reduced order modeling (ROM) has been an active research area, as they can be used directly with common linear flutter analysis tools. Among them, linearized reduced-order modeling approaches rely on linearization of the nonlinear unsteady aerodynamic flow equations, assuming that the amplitude of the unsteady motion is limited to small perturbations about the nonlinear steady-state flow ...

  3. Resilience-Based Optimization of Space Systems

    SBC: Magnin, Michael            Topic: H6

    With future missions of increasing complexity, duration, distance, and uncertainty, there has been a growing need for methods and tools that can permit the effective formation of early stage conceptual designs that are not only cost-effective, but also productive and resilient to failures. Current approaches are mostly tailored to evaluating independent systems but do not necessarily scale well to ...

  4. Tunable Single Frequency UV Laser

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S1

    Compact and rugged single-frequency pulsed UV lasers are needed for measurement of ozone and the hydroxyl radicals (OH). The determination of the concentration of OH in the atmosphere is central to the understanding of atmospheric photochemistry. The goal for this SBIR Phase program is to demonstrate and build a highly robust high-power fast-tuning single frequency pulsed UV laser near 308nm for O ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Improved X-Ray Filters with Al-Sc Alloys and Nanoparticle-Doped Polyimide

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: S1

    The next generation of detectors for high energy observatories needs a significant improvement in filter technology, as identified in the SBIR solicitation and as a PCOS technology gap. We propose a two-fold change in the state of the art of thin film EUV and x-ray filters, using Al-Sc alloy in place of Al and adding Au nanoparticles to polyimide. Al-Sc alloys show smaller grain sizes that should ...

  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. Wafer Level Hybrid Interconnect Aligned (Cu/Oxide) Bonding for 3D Integration of Heterogenous (Si/GaAs) Submillimeter-Wave Arrays

    SBC: Cactus Materials Llc            Topic: S1

    The objective of this work is to develop millimeter wave arrays with ultra-high accuracy alignment (<300nm) using hybrid aligned bonding. Currently, most submillimeter-wave array systems utilize a single pixel both for space as well as ground applications. While these approaches are workable for the near-term, they will become unsustainable as pixel count is increased. In addition, the shear ma ...

  10. 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 ...
