  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. SilverlineAN

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: A3

    Modern aircraft systems have slowly evolved towards integrated modular computing architectures that are linked to multiple external networks. These developments have introduced cyber-attack vulnerabilities which did not exist in older-generation avionics systems.  To counter the emerging threats and increased vulnerabilities, an ability to comprehensively and systematically assess aviation cy ...

  3. Low Profile Aerodynamic Testing Tape (LPATT)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: A1

     Current methods for obtaining pressure profiles on airfoils require complex pressure-scanner setups, which are expensive, very time-consuming, have multiple points of potential failure, and physically change the structure/loading on a test airfoil, especially in the case of smaller airfoils. This severely reduces the frequency at which such testing can be done, and the number of airfoils on ...

  4. Redox Tolerant Cathode for Solid Oxide Electrolysis Stacks

    SBC: Oxeon Energy, LLC            Topic: H1

    OxEon Energy proposes a combination of materials and engineering solutions to demonstrate the reduction-oxidation (redox) stability of a solid oxide electrolysis cathode during start up and operation. The redox tolerant cathode material will reduce system complexity, tolerate flow upset conditions, and provide flexibility in space based systems without a man-in-the-loop.Solid oxide electrolysis st ...

  5. Strategic Technologies for Autonomy & Resilience Tools (START)

    SBC: SINGULARITY - INTELLIGENCE AMPLIFIED, LLC            Topic: H6

    Singularity - Intelligence Amplified, LLC proposes to develop a resilience toolkit enabling the planning, assessment, implementation, and utilization of resilience for future manned spaceflight and autonomous systems. The Strategic Technologies for Autonomy & Resilience Tools (START) project will demonstrate the associated technologies the company envisions integrating as a toolkit w ...

  6. Safe, High Energy Batteries for Space Suits

    SBC: NOHMS Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H4

    A new generation of spacesuits is needed to support EVAs for future surface exploration missions. These new suits will require decreased mass and volume, improved functionality, and excellent reliability. More power is required than today’s suit can provide. The battery pack will be the main source of power and weight and needs to provide an energy source for life-support functions, communic ...

  7. Low Cost Personal Life Support System

    SBC: Final Frontier Design, LLC            Topic: H4

    Final Frontier Design (FFD) proposes a Low Cost Personal Life Support System (PLSS) for a space suit, utilizing commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) items wherever possible. The closed loop, Low Cost PLSS system proposed includes all the required systems for a generic EVA setup, and can be packaged effectively for outer space based applications.  The use of COTS items with a minimum amount of ori ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
