  1. An Ultra Low Power Cryo-Refrigerator for Space

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S107

    Future NASA Space Science Missions will incorporate detectors, sensors, shields, and telescopes that must be cooled to cryogenic temperatures. An enabling technology for these missions is advanced cryocoolers that can provide continuous and distributed cooling with minimal input power. On this program, Creare proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative cryocooler that produces refrigeratio ...

  2. An Advanced Wet Expansion Turbine for Hydrogen Liquefaction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X1001

    This proposal is responsive to NASA SBIR Topic X10.01, specifically, the need for efficient small- to medium-scale hydrogen liquefaction technologies, including domestically produced wet cryogenic turboexpanders. Future NASA missions will require hydrogen liquefaction systems for spaceport, planetary, and lunar surface operations. A critical part of these systems is the cryogenic expansion turbi ...

  3. Small Integrated HFI Sensor for the AVR-2B


    "SSSC is pleased to propose the development and delivery of a Hostile Fire Indication Sensor (HFIS) based on the Phase I design concept. The resulting system will limit the number of circuit card assemblies to two: one for the short wave infrared (SWIR)

  4. Reliable, Efficient, Lightweight Cryocooler for ISRU

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Future planetary exploration missions will require technology for In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) to minimize launch mass, risk, and cost. We propose an innovative cryocooler for in-situ separation of gases and production of cryogens. Key applications will be production and storage of liquid oxygen needed as propellant oxidizer, liquid oxygen supply for EVA suits for Mars exploration, and cond ...

  5. Ultra-Compact Heat Exchangers for Space-Borne Cryocoolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Low-temperature cryocooler systems need recuperative heat exchangers with extremely high-thermal effectiveness (0.997 or greater) to achieve cooling in the 10 K range. For space-borne cryocoolers for sensor cooling, these recuperators must also be compact, lightweight, and cause minimal pressure losses in the gas stream. To meet these challenging requirements, we propose to develop a radial flow h ...

  6. A Fault-Tolerant Heat Exchanger for Manned Spacecraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The specific proposed innovation is a compact, fluid-to-fluid heat exchanger that is fault tolerant because the working fluids cannot come into contact even if there are large internal leaks. Manned spacecraft typically use water-based, secondary coolant loops to isolate the crew from toxic or asphyxiating fluids (such as ammonia or freon) in the central thermal bus. The innovation is a fabricatio ...

  7. Aerospace Model Maker System


    The proposed Sanders Aerospace ModelMaker (AMM) system provides an innovative rapid prototyping method of fabricating aerospace wind tunnel test models that dramatically increases instrumentation effectiveness with reduced complexity, cost and construction time. The AMM uses an in-situ layered deposition process to build ceramic test models that withstand high temperatures and have fully integrate ...
