  3. Radiation Modeling of COTS Power Converters in a Highly Shield Space Environment

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: T6

    Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electronics systems operated in highly-shielded enclosures (HSE) will all require power supplies or DC/DC converters to power the signal processing electronics. nbsp;Most power supplies are based on switching converters that require power transistors, diodes, gate drivers, and control ICs that regulate the power. These components in a COTS assembly will all be unhar ...

  4. Enabling High Energy Density Li-ion Battery Using Solid Electrolytes

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: T15

    Conventional lithium-ion batteries demonstrate great potential for energy storage applications but they face some major challenges such as low energy density and cycle life. It is meaningful to pursue alternative strategies to address these barriers. nbsp;In this project, we will design and develop high energy Li-metal battery using solid electrolytes that may lead to high energy density (300-400 ...

  5. Intelligent Sensor Systems for Rocket Propulsion Testing

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T13

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Auburn University propose to develop a smart sensor module (SSM) to enable wireless sensing capabilities in liquid propulsion systems. An SSM would increase NASArsquo;s capabilities by eliminating labor-intensive tasks such as routing and securing cables. It would also improve sensor accessibility in locations that are difficult to diagnose, and enable advanced com ...

  6. Doppler-Compensated Integrated Photonic Time-Bin Entanglement Transceiver

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T5

    A quantum network based on quantum entanglement is a potentially revolutionary technology with anticipated applications, such as ldquo;blindrdquo; quantum computing and secure communications, as well as a host of yet-to-be-discovered uses. To realize the true potential of quantum entanglement, scientists and engineers need standardized and reliable hardware to transmit and receive entangled quantu ...

  7. NTR Fuel Testing in MIT Reactor Facilities

    SBC: Little Prairie Services            Topic: T2

    It is widely understood that Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) has the inherent capability to dramatically expand our ability to explore the solar system, and to more safely transport human crews within interplanetary space.nbsp; However, since the Timberwind (TW)/Space Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (SNTP) program was terminated in 1993, little progress has been made, and no nuclear fuels testing has ...

  8. Compact Ethylene Monitor for NASA Space Missions

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: T6

    Human missions to the Moon and Marsnbsp;will require advanced systems to maintain an environment supporting human life. Smart greenhouses are necessary for fresh food supply in long term space missions. Through natural metabolic processes, plants can produce ethylene, which can accumulate in closed environments and have undesirable effects on the plants. These effects can include reduced growth, i ...

  9. Real Time Ethylene Monitor for Plant Growth Management

    SBC: SOUTHWEST SCIENCES INC            Topic: T6

    Southwest Sciences proposes to develop a real time, compact laser-based ethylene gas analyzer with a detection sensitivity of 25 parts-per-billion by volume or better.nbsp; Ethylene monitoring and control is important to plant growth and health in closed growth chambers such as would be needed for future long-term, manned missions. The analyzer will be fully autonomous and uses newly available, lo ...

  10. Cooperative Control and Localization of Multiple Spacecraft using a Multi-Agent Mission Operations System

    SBC: INTERSTEL TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: T4

    Multi-satellite swarms are becoming popular due to their low costs and short development time. Instead of large and costly monolithic satellites, small satellite swarms can be flown as distributed sensing applications for atmospheric sampling, distributed antennas, synthetic apertures among other exciting applications, delivering an even greater mission capability. This Phase-I project contributes ...
