  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 and high-t ...

  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 ...
