The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. > 1,000 W/kg Rad-Hard, High-Voltage PV Blanket at < $50/W IMM Cell Cost

    SBC: MARK O'NEILL, LLC            Topic: Z101

    The innovation is a new type of Stretched Lens Array (SLA) with a much thinner, lighter and more robust Fresnel lens than prior versions. The new lens enables a full blanket-level specific power > 1,000 W/kg, including lenses, the complete PV cell circuit (including cells, encapsulation, high-voltage insulation, and heavy radiation shielding), and waste heat rejection radiator. The new SLA array ...

  3. 25x Space Fresnel Lens Concentrator Using 4(+) Junction IMM Solar Cells and Nyctinastic Graphene Radiators to Mitigate LILT Effects for Outer Planet Missions

    SBC: MARK O'NEILL, LLC            Topic: T1502

    The innovation is a unique solar array for powering NASA's deep space missions without the low-intensity, low-temperature (LILT) problems of conventional arrays. The new array uses a robust, ultra-light, color-mixing Fresnel lens to point-focus sunlight at a 25X concentration ratio onto the most advanced 4-junction and 6-junction inverted metamorphic (IMM) photovoltaic cells. Waste heat from the ...

  7. A 3D Printer Enabled, High Performing, Microgravity Compatible, and Versatile Sample Preparation Platform

    SBC: AI BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: H302

    AI Biosciences proposes to demonstrate the ability of a microgravity-compatible, compact, light-weight, and automated versatile sample preparation platform (VSPP) that processes samples from various sample matrices (swab, potable water, blood, urine, etc.) to yield high quality nucleic acids for downstream molecular detection and identification in a closed-cartridge system. Its primary function w ...

    SBIR Phase I 2017 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. A BIOREACTOR FOR SCRENNING AND PRODUCTION OF HIGH VALUE SECONDARY PLANT METABOLITES

    SBC: Phytoresource Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE BIOCHEMICAL AND SYNTHETIC CAPACITY OF HIGHER PLANTS, AS SHOWN BY THEIR NATURAL CONTENT OF SUBSTANCES, HAS BEEN USED FOR CENTURIES IN SUPPLYING MATERIALS IMPORTANT IN PHARMACOLOGY AND IN FLAVORS AND FRAGRANCES. MANY OF THESE SECONDARY PRODUCTS ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY AND AN ENORMOUS EFFORT HAS TO BE EXTENDED TO GET THEM. ATTEMPTS TO USE CELL CULTURES OF HIGHER PLANTS AS A MEANS OF PRODUCING SECONDA ...
