  1. Detecting Fossilized Microscopic Life Forms on Mars with Dual-Energy CT

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This purpose of this SBIR Phase II project is to build a prototype dual-energy CT scanner to inspect and analyze the small rocks and minerals for evidnece of fossilized life. The goal is to achieve three-dimensional volume images with 10-micron spatial resolution in the reconstructed image and to provide identification at that resolution, of both the density and the effective atomic number of the ...

  3. Production of Novel Structural Glasses from Planetary Materials

    SBC: Containerless Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Human exploration and development of space is currently limited by the high cost and technical difficulty of transporting materials from Earth to develop local infrastructure. The proposed research will enhance the development of new structural materials which can be produced in large quantities using mineral-based resources which are locally available and abundant on the Moon, and potentially on ...

  4. A Proton Collimator for IEC Fusion Propulsion

    SBC: NPL ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will study and develop an efficient method for directed energy extraction from an Inertial Electrostatic Confinement (IEC) fusion plant, enabling efficient space propulsion. The concept proposed would collect and collimate the high-energy fusion ions from the IEC using a unique system of magnetic fields. This beam of high-energy particles could be coupled to a direct energy c ...

  9. sbir phase i: Colorimetric Sensor for Real-Time Detection of Nitroaromatic Explosives

    SBC: ChemSensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a cost-effective, fast-acting sensor for detecting the presence of nitroaromatic explosives. It involves a unique chemical detection technology in which colorimetric changes in an array of dyes constitute a signal much like that generated by the mammalian olfaction system; each dye is a cross-responsive sensor. This techno ...
