  1. Plug and Play: Utilizing MOFs in Preexisting Carbon Dioxide Removal Assemblies for Enhanced Performance, Smaller Footprint, and Lower Energy Consumption.

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T6

    Protection against the buildup of CO2 in spacecraft is of crucial importance to astronaut health. Currently, several methods are used to remove CO2 from spacecraft including amine scrubbers, lithium hydroxide canisters, and adsorbent-based carbon dioxide removal assemblies (CDRAs). Each scrubbing method has individual benefits and drawbacks: amine scrubbers have no particulate release but require ...

  3. Scalable and Distributed Inertial Navigation Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: T4

    Current state of the art inertial measurement units (IMUs) co-locate a set of accelerometers and gyroscopes into a single package. CU Aerospace (CUA), in partnership with the University of Illinois, propose to develop a scalable and distributed IMU for space robotics and CubeSat applications. The user can choose to include an arbitrary number of inertial sensors beyond the minimal number of sensor ...

  4. Bio-inspired Cellular Material Optimization for the Design of Additively Manufactured Multi-Functional Lightweight Structures

    SBC: Phoenix Analysis and Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T3

    New technologies in imaging and manufacturing, including Additive Manufacturing (AM), are opening possibilities for mimicking biological structures in a way that has been unprecedented in human history. The primary innovation proposed here is the development of a tool that generates bio-inspired, parametrically optimized cellular materials for integration into the design of Additively Manufactured ...

  5. Integrated High Frequency Electric Propulsor for Turbo-Electric Aircraft

    SBC: HINETICS LLC            Topic: A1

    We propose the development of a very high specific power integrated electric turbofan directly driven with a high frequency, air-core synchronous motor. If the target specific power is achieved, this technology could increase the viability of turbo-electric airplanes for commercial air transport, leading to significantly lower carbon emissions and energy use in aviation. The key inn ...

  6. Discrete Time State-Space Aeroservoelastic Modeling using FUN3D

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A1

    CFD-based reduced order modeling (ROM) has been an active research area, as they can be used directly with common linear flutter analysis tools. Among them, linearized reduced-order modeling approaches rely on linearization of the nonlinear unsteady aerodynamic flow equations, assuming that the amplitude of the unsteady motion is limited to small perturbations about the nonlinear steady-state flow ...

  7. Tunable Single Frequency UV Laser

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S1

    Compact and rugged single-frequency pulsed UV lasers are needed for measurement of ozone and the hydroxyl radicals (OH). The determination of the concentration of OH in the atmosphere is central to the understanding of atmospheric photochemistry. The goal for this SBIR Phase program is to demonstrate and build a highly robust high-power fast-tuning single frequency pulsed UV laser near 308nm for O ...

  8. Chip-Scale Active Fast Light Gyroscope and Accelerometer using Integrated Photonic Technology

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S3

    The fast-light effect in a cavity, in the active or passive mode, has emerged as an important mechanism for enhancing the sensitivity of many devices.  Recently, we have been investigating the development of gyroscopes and accelerometers using the active mode, in which the cavity is a Fast-Light Ring Laser (FLRL).  Specifically, we have demonstrated, on a table-top, a pair of counter-pro ...

  9. Wafer Level Hybrid Interconnect Aligned (Cu/Oxide) Bonding for 3D Integration of Heterogenous (Si/GaAs) Submillimeter-Wave Arrays

    SBC: Cactus Materials Llc            Topic: S1

    The objective of this work is to develop millimeter wave arrays with ultra-high accuracy alignment (<300nm) using hybrid aligned bonding. Currently, most submillimeter-wave array systems utilize a single pixel both for space as well as ground applications. While these approaches are workable for the near-term, they will become unsustainable as pixel count is increased. In addition, the shear ma ...

  10. Enabling High Efficiency I/O Performance on High-End Computing Systems and Data Stores with HDF5

    SBC: Akadio, Inc.            Topic: S5

    Akadio proposes to develop H5 Hermes, an enhancement to HDF5 to enable high efficiency I/O performance for HDF5 applications that perform many related reads and writes across large data structures. Such I/O operations are often a serious bottleneck for large scale simulations, resulting in I/O bottlenecks that significantly degrade overall performance.There are existing HDF5-based solutions simila ...
