  1. Nanoengineered Hybrid Gas Sensors for Spacesuit Monitoring

    SBC: N5 Sensors, Inc.            Topic: T601

    Extravehicular Mobility Units (EVU) are the necessary to perform elaborate, dynamic tasks in the biologically harsh conditions of space from International Space Station (ISS) external repairs to human exploration of planetary bodies. The EVUs have stringent requirements on physical and chemical nature of the equipment/components/processes, to ensure safety and health of the individual require prop ...

  2. Properties Investigation of High-MON Oxidizers for Use in Deep Space Exploration

    SBC: Frontier Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T9

    Rocket propulsion for deep space applications typically use liquid propellants for axial stage and attitude control systems. The most common propellants are hydrazine (N2H4) and monomethylhydrazine (MMH) (CH3N2H3) for the fuels, and nitrogen tetroxide (NTO) (N2O4) for the oxidizer. The freezing points of both hydrazine and NTO approach room temperature and require on-board electrical heaters for t ...

  3. Multi Domain Modeling for Space Systems

    SBC: Metamorph Inc            Topic: T1102

    A comprehensive model-based approach will be enabled for space systems design via the work started on Phase I of this project. The OpenMETA toolkit is a cyber-physical modeling tool for the design and virtual integration of complex systems, developed under the DARPA AVM Program. OpenMETA will be leveraged and extended to support NASA/JPL goals for multi-physics, multi-domain modeling, analysis, ...

  4. Multi-Disciplinary Analysis and Optimization of Integrated Spacecraft System Models

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T1102

    M4 Engineering and Missouri S&T propose to investigate the viability of creating a multidisciplinary analysis and optimization architecture for analyzing spacecraft system models. The current approach will utilize commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software to alleviate acquisition hurdles for NASA (and public) technical monitors/reviewers. Next, a preliminary set of analysis modules will be develo ...

  5. Efficient CO2 and H2O Removal with Novel Adsorbentsfor Life Support Applications on Mars

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T6

    Very low CO2 concentrations that accumulate quickly from human respiration can have dramatic health effects, and thus in NASA’s history many technical removal strategies for CO2 from a confined atmosphere have been suggested and explored. A CO2 removal system that functions in a is a new area of research, as the primary CO2 removal component in the state-of-the-art system doesn’t have the adso ...

  6. Modular Embedded Intelligent Sensor Network

    SBC: Angstrom Designs, Inc.            Topic: T1301

    Remote sensing, when combined with real-time processing, provides instant feedback on safety, mission success and system health. Being able to combine embedded sensing with distributed networks gives us the additional potential to further benefit many systems and sub-systems in the aerospace industry including launch vehicles, ground test equipment and spacecraft. These remote distributed sensor ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Deployable Ka-Band Reflectarray

    SBC: Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems, Inc.            Topic: T501

    Tyvak, in collaboration with UCLA, proposes a novel approach to the challenge of creating a large reflector for Ka-band high data rate links. We propose to attach the primary reflector surface permanently to the surface of a 6U spacecraft and illuminate the reflector using a Cassegrain style subreflector with an illuminating antenna that is permanently mounted to the transmitter / receiver inside ...

  9. Chip-scale THz Spectrometer

    SBC: NEXUS PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: T8

    We propose to revolutionize the field of frequency-domain terahertz (THz) spectrometers by developing ~2 cm3 wide-band spectrometer with improved frequency accuracy, resolution and stability. Integration will also provide significant SWaP-C advantage compared to present solution allowing deployment in small spacecraft platforms and other applications where low SWaP is crucial.Compared to presently ...

  10. Instrumentation For Multiple Radiation Detection Based On Novel Mercurous Halides For Nuclear Planetology

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: T801

    We propose a spectrometer that employs a single room temperature semiconductor detector that can perform both gamma and neutron spectroscopy. The proposed detector is based on the novel mercurous halide materials, Hg2X2 (X=I, Cl, Br). The mercurous halides are new wide band-gap semiconductor detector materials that can provide radiation detection with low cost, high performance and long term stab ...
