  5. High Performance Lithium Sulfur Battery with Novel Separator Membrane for Space Applications

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: Z102

    For NASA's human and robotic mission, the battery with extremely high specific energy (>500 Wh/kg) and long cycle life are urgently sought after in order to reduce the payload weight. Current state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries, such as graphite/LiCoO2 or graphite/LiFePO4 systems, have limited specific energy to around 220 Wh/kg on the cell level. In order to meet the future NASA mission requ ...

  6. Highly Conductive Polymer Electrolyte Impregnated 3d Li-Metal Negative Electrode

    SBC: Xerion Advanced Battery            Topic: Z102

    XABC (Xerion Advanced Battery Corp) proposes a novel anode with three unique features, each designed to 1) control or 2) prevent dendrite growth. The first feature is a 95% porous electrode architecture. This electrode is an open-cell, nanostructured conductive foam whose internal structures are conformal coated with lithium metal. Dendrites growing outward from an internal pore surface will propa ...

  8. High-performance 1024x1024 MWIR/LWIR Dual-band InAs/GaSb Type-II Superlattice-based Camera System

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: S103

    High performance LWIR detectors are highly needed. In order to image from long distance, it is important that imagers have high sensitivity, high resolution, and very low dark currents. This leads to technical goals of having low noise, low dark current in small size pixels in large arrays. While saturated performance levels of traditional systems based on bulk semiconductors have not quite met th ...

  9. Parallel Nonlinear Optimization for Astrodynamic Navigation

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: H904

    CU Aerospace proposes the development of a new parallel nonlinear program (NLP) solver software package. NLPs allow the solution of complex optimization problems, and there exist today a number of capable NLP solvers typically used within the astrodynamics community. Unfortunately, none of them take into account the capabilities of a high performance computer with thousands of processors, nor use ...

  10. Megapixel Mercury Cadmium Telluride Focal Plane Arrays for Infrared Imaging out to 12 Microns

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: S103

    We propose the fabrication of large format, long wave infrared (LWIR) mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe or MCT) detector arrays where the cutoff wavelength is extended to 12 micron at cryogenic temperatures for use in missions to near earth objects, comets, and the outer planets. The MCT detector arrays will be a high performance improvement to meet the detector needs for future NASA missions. T ...
