  1. A Coupled System for Predicting SPE Fluxes

    SBC: PREDICTIVE SCIENCE INCORPORATED            Topic: T602

    Solar Particle Events (SPEs) represent a major hazard for extravehicular maneuvers by astronauts in Earth orbit, and for eventual manned interplanetary space travel. They can also harm aircraft avionics, communication and navigation. We propose to develop a system to aid forecasters in the prediction of such events, and in the identification/lengthening of "all clear" time periods when there is ...

  2. Active Radiation Shield

    SBC: Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories Inc.            Topic: T301

    In the Phase I effort, Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories LLC (GTL) verified the feasibility of generating power from space particle radiation. This effort successfully demonstrated electrical power production from a particle radiation source using an initial proof-of-concept device. The effort also identified a second approach that has the potential for even better power generation and offers enhanced ...

  3. Advanced Gas Sensing Technology for Space Suits

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: T601

    The gas sensor in the PLSS of the ISS EMU will meet its projected life in 2020, and NASA is planning to replace it. At present, only high TRL devices based on infrared absorption are candidate replacements, because of their proven long-term stability, despite their size and power consumption and failures in the presence of liquid water. No current compact sensor has the tolerance for liquid water ...

  4. 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 that is applicable in outer space environments. 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 polyhydroxyal ...

  5. High Performance Hybrid Upper Stage for NanoLaunch Vehicles

    SBC: Parabilis Space Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T101

    Parabilis Space Technologies, Inc (Parabilis), in collaboration with Utah State University (USU), proposes further development of a low-cost, high-performance launch vehicle upper stage that uses a high density, storable oxidizer and a polymer fuel grain as propellants in response to solicitation T1.01, Affordable Nano/Micro Launch Propulsion Stages. This effort will build upon the successful opti ...

  6. High Performance Image Processing Algorithms for Current and Future Mastcam Imagers

    SBC: APPLIED RESEARCH LLC            Topic: T801

    In this project, Applied Research LLC (ARLLC), the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK), and the Arizona State University (ASU) propose high performance image processing algorithms that will support current and future Mastcam imagers. The algorithms fuse the acquired Mastcam stereo images at different wavelengths to generate multispectral image cubes, which can then be used for high quality vi ...

  7. Improved Forecasting of Solar Particle Events and their Effects on Space Electronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T602

    High-energy space radiation from Galactic Cosmic Rays and Solar Particle Events (SPEs) pose significant risks to equipment and astronaut health in NASA missions. Energetic particles from SPEs associated with flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) may adversely affect not only beyond-Low-Earth-Orbit missions, but also aircraft avionics, communications, and airline crew/passenger health. It is cru ...

  8. Innovative Aerodynamic Modeling for Aeroservoelastic Analysis and Design

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T401

    We propose the development of a novel aerodynamic modeling approach making use of fully unstructured grids for unsteady panel aerodynamic models for aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic analysis. The unsteady aerodynamic code will be integrated with an existing suite of aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic analysis tools making it possible to perform aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic analysis of complex v ...

  9. Instrumentation for Multiple Radiation Detection Based On Novel Mercurous Halides for Nuclear Planetology

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: T801

    Radiation detectors that sense gamma and neutron radiation are critical to the exploration of planetary surface composition. Among the key technological challenges is to have a suitable detector that not only can be used for both gamma ray and neutron detection, but also satisfy the many highly desirable and essential for spaceflight properties: good energy resolution, high efficiency, high radiat ...
