  1. Active Radiation Shield

    SBC: Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories LLC            Topic: T301

    DEC-Shield technology offers the means to generate electric power from cosmic radiation sources and fuse dissimilar systems and functionality into a structural component to create a Multi-functional Structure (MFS). DEC-Shield integrated into MFS technology can be used to generate electric power and provide radiation protection in a space vehicle; even maximizing that protection by spreading the ...

  2. A Cubesat Hyperspectral Imager

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: T801

    Mapping spectrometers have been extremely useful in multiple NASA applications, from Earth climate monitoring to identifying hydrocarbon lakes on Titan. Traditionally, imaging spectroscopy systems are not only heavy but also large in order to accommodate the long path lengths needed for spectral separation. There are several varieties, such as push-broom and scanning imaging spectrometers, but h ...

  5. A Novel, Membrane-Based Bioreactor Design to Enable a Closed-Loop System on Earth and Beyond

    SBC: Mango Materials, Inc.            Topic: T604

    The proposed innovation is a membrane bioreactor system to produce a biopolymer from methane gas. This new methane fermentation process will expand and advance current gas delivery techniques to create affordable fermentation methods on Earth and beyond. Mango Materials is currently working to scale up and commercialize the production of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) from methane, but its scaled-up ...

  6. Comprehensive Modeling for Off-Earth Mining Optimization and Resource Processing

    SBC: ASCENTECH ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: T402

    The multi-months duration and energy constraints of the Earth?Mars journey are forcing an evolution toward the self-sufficiency of human crews in their readiness to adapt to changing circumstances and survive emergencies so far from Earth. The situation is akin to the one faced by the first waves of people brave enough to explore new continents during the course of human history. Limited by the ca ...

  7. Development of an Advanced Diamond TEC Cathode

    SBC: IOP Technologies LLC            Topic: T603

    NASA recognizes the importance of conservation, smart utilization and reuse of resources for their deep space missions to address the need for regeneration of air, water and waste with highly reliable systems to reduce mission payload. Additionally, energy for life support and other systems needs to be obtained from renewable energy sources or waste streams. In order to address NASA's requirements ...

  9. In-Situ Spectroscopic Europa Explorer (ISEE)

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: T803

    The US congress has instructed NASA to include a lander component in the next Europa mission. The mission has a target launch date of 2022, and its primary goal will be to search Europa?s icy surface for evidence of life that may persist within the ice shell or subsurface ocean. The Europa lander study specifically recommends a combination of a mass spectrometer and a Raman spectrometer to investi ...

  10. Integrated Optical Transmitter for Space Based Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: T802

    The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement an integrated optical transmitter for RZ-DPSK modulation for integration into modems for the international space station (ISS). Conventional optical transmitters are based on commercially available discrete components. These have several fiber interconnects which leads to increased optical loss, reduced reliability in a space e ...
