  1. Development and Flight Testing of RAIDER: An Automated Upset Recovery System

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A202

    UAS have the potential to offer great economic and operational advantages, but realizing this potential will require greater operational flexibility for UAS in the National Airspace. New technologies that enable beyond visual line of sight operations and that allow one operator to control multiple vehicles will expand the range of missions that can be accomplished and reduce operating costs. Autom ...

  2. Multi-Species Chemical Microsensor For Real Time Cryogenic Purge Line Monitoring

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: H1001

    Makel Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop a miniaturized Multi-Species Chemical Microsensor Instrument suitable for real-time, in situ measurements of hydrogen, oxygen, water vapor and mixture thermal conductivity for monitoring purge effectiveness in cryogenic propellant lines. Helium is a scarce, strategic and non-renewable natural resource. NASA is a major user of helium and significant fut ...

  3. Hydrogenous Polymer-Regolith Composites for Radiation-Shielding Materials

    SBC: International Scientific Technologies Inc            Topic: H1101

    NASA has identified a need in Sub-topic H11.01 for advanced radiation-shielding technologies using in situ resources, such as regolith, to protect humans from the hazards of galactic cosmic radiation (GCR) during extra-terrestrial missions. The radiation species of greatest interest are light ions (particularly protons), heavy ions (such as iron-56) and neutrons. International Scientific Technol ...

  5. Passive Technology to Improve Criticality Control of NTP Reactors

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: H202

    This SBIR will develop passive reactor criticality control technology for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) identified by Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) in Phase 1. This technology will allow NTP systems to start up by rotating the control drums to a single predetermined location and remain there for the duration of operation for the majority of the burns associated with a Mars mission. Pas ...

  6. Light Weight Spherical Cryotank

    SBC: Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories Inc.            Topic: H204

    BHL? technology offers the means to reduce the mass of cryogenic propellant tanks by 75% relative to state-of-the-art metal tanks. Since propellant tanks are generally the largest individual mass item on a launch vehicle or spacecraft, this mass savings of this magnitude can have profound effect on vehicle performance. A conceptual design of a spherical BHL cryotank for the NASA Morpheus Lander ...

  7. An Airborne Particulate Monitor for Spacecraft

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: H301

    A compact instrument will be develop to provide long-term monitoring of the number concentration and approximate size of airborne particles in microgravity environments such as found aboard spacecraft cabins. Particles as small as 10 nm will be detected by a self-sustaining, tippable, water-based condensation particle counter. This will be coupled to an optical sizing instrument to provide particl ...

  9. Pulsating Heat Pipes

    SBC: Peregrine Falcon Corporation            Topic: H801

    Large radiator panels, based upon state of the art conventional heat pipes with attached fins for thermal load distribution and dissipation is the current baseline design for NASA?s Fission Power System. The initial 1 kWe FPS requires a total radiating surface of 2.5 m2. Higher power designs will require corresponding larger radiating surfaces. In order to achieve optimum radiator performance, the ...

  10. Low-Loss Ferrite Components for NASA Missions


    The goal of this research is to develop high-frequency Faraday rotation isolators that exhibit significantly reduced loss, higher power handling and improved bandwidth over commercially available products. The bandwidth limitations of high-frequency circulators will be explored. It was demonstrated in the Phase I work that the bandwidth of these components can be substantially increased through im ...
