  1. The Development and Evaluation of an Enhanced Electrostatic Precipitator for Poultry Dust Removal

    SBC: Tisch Environmental, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERA1

    Particulate emissions are one of the main air quality concerns in poultry farms and other animal feeding operations (AFO) and especially are significant in poultry AFOs.  It can cause health damage to the AFO worker, become a nuisance to the neighborhoods, and result in violations of the Clean Air Act. This Phase I study focuses on an innovative particulate control technology ...

  2. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: 05NCERD1

    Polymer composites are used widely for automotive body panels to save weight, increase fuel efficiency, and eliminate corrosion.  Unlike metals, however, structural polymers are not conductive electrically; thus, they are not amenable to the industry standard technique of electrostatic spray painting (ESP).  Current methods for adapting polymers to ESP pose serious environmen ...

  3. Meta-Structured Cermets for Chrome Replacement

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD3

    The objectives of this Phase I project are to demonstrate the production of potentially very low-cost nano/metastructured thermal spray powders using recycled scrap tools or very low-cost ceramic powders and to demonstrate superior materials properties of the metastructured coating when applied using thermal spray. The result would be a new class of very low-cost, nanostructured cement coatings th ...

  4. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 05NCERD9

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescenc ...

  5. Photochemical Cyclopolymerization of Polyimides in Ultraviolet Ridgidizing Composites for Use in Inflatable Structures

    SBC: Advanced Coatings International            Topic: X202

    This innovation uses photochemical cyclopolymerization of polyimides to manufacture ultraviolet rigidizable composites for use in RIS (ridgidizing inflatable) structures. Sunlight initiated polymerization (UV polymerization) has been identified as a promising method for ridgidizing composites for inflatable space structures. The use of in-situ polymerized polyimides will provide superior dimension ...

  6. Nanofiber Additions for Tailorable Vibration Damping Materials

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: A204

    The goal of NASA's Quiet Aircraft Technology project is to reduce perceived aircraft noise by half in 10 years and by 75 percent in 25 years, using 1997 levels as the baseline. These reductions are necessary to meet the expected demand for air travel and increasingly stringent noise standards around the world. A significant portion of noise reduction will be achieved through lighter aircraft as a ...

  7. Robust Engineered Thermal Control Material Systems for Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) and Prometheus Needs

    SBC: Applied Material Systems Engineering, Inc.(AMSENG)            Topic: X1004

    identified needs for the thermal control and ESD functions of the Prometheus Program's hardware for the heat rejection system for the planned nuclear system. These efforts can also serve uniquely the (CEV) radiator systems needs. The TCMS for the radiators of the both CEV and Prometheus missions need to operate at higher temperatures and provide the space environment stable low ratio of (αs/εT) ...

  8. Thermo-Acoustic Convertor for Space Power

    SBC: Sunpower, Inc.            Topic: S204

    Sunpower will introduce thermoacoustic Stirling heat engine (TASHE) technology into its existing Stirling convertor technology to eliminate the moving mechanical displacer. The displacer function will be performed by a thermal buffer tube and supporting thermoacoustic components containing no moving mechanical parts. Sunpower's linear alternator will be retained, except re-sized to accommodate th ...

  9. High Specific Power Multiple-Cylinder Free-Piston Alpha Stirling

    SBC: Sunpower, Inc.            Topic: X301

    NASA seeks highly efficient, long life solar dynamic power conversion systems. The requirements for these missions emphasize low mass and high conversion efficiencies. A reliable and highly efficient Stirling convertor would provide mission planners with less costly spacecraft power options than currently exist. Current Stirling technologies have demonstrated a beginning of life specific power lev ...

  10. Assessment of Protective Properties of Optimized Flagellin Derivative Against Biologically Harmful Effects of Ionizing Irradiation During Space Flight

    SBC: Cleveland Biolabs, Inc            Topic: T102

    The goal of this proposal is to explore a novel proprietary biopharmaceutical agent, named deltaFL-AA', a first in the series of innovative radioprotectors to act as an agent providing protection of the organism against major space radiation risks. These risks include organism death resulting from acute irradiation as well as radiation-induced carcinogenesis caused by low-dose exposure. An unprece ...
