  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. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Novel Technologies for Efficient NTP Reactor Decay Heat Removal and Utilization

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: Z10

    In this SBIR, Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) will investigate and develop a set of novel technologies to minimize the amount of hydrogen needed for reactor decay heat removal after the shutdown of Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems. Decay heat is the energy deposited during the decay of radioactive fission products after the reactor shuts down. Its management is a critical issue for N ...

  8. Flexible Radiator (FlexRAD)

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: Z2

    Paragon proposes development of Flexible Radiator (FlexRAD) technology for integration with inflatable habitats.  A pumped fluid loop radiator is composed of the fluid loop tubing which carries coolant for heat exchange, facesheets which provide extended surface area for radiative heat rejection, and inlet and outlet manifolds to connect individual sets of tubing.  For a radiator to be f ...

  9. Condensate Separator for MIcrogravity Conditions (COSMIC)

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: Z2

    Paragon Space Development Corporation (Paragon) proposes the development of an advanced COndensate Separator for MIcrogravity Conditions (COSMIC). COSMIC is a full flow condensate separator designed to separate condensate from air effectively and with low power use.  This technology employs Paragon’s unique and robust, low power liquid separation technology that has heritage in and has ...

  10. AstroPorter

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: Z5

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop a collaborative robotics platform, AstroPorter, for multi-agent coordinated tasks on the International Space Station (ISS). TUI will develop an AstroPorter payload for Astrobee to perform collaborative robotics tasks with TUI’s MANTIS - an EXPRESS Rack payload with a robotic arm for telerobotic operation of experiments on the ISS. AstroPorter ...
