  1. Tailoring the Solar Spectrum for Enhanced Crop Yield for Space Missions

    SBC: UbiQD, Inc            Topic: T7

    UbiQD, Inc, is partnered with the University of Arizona, Controlled Environment Agriculture Center to enhance the lighting component of the Mars-Lunar Greenhouse prototype to improve the food production for the system. Ultimately, the goals is for UbiQD to install a down-conversion film composed of Quantum Dots (QDs) into the solar collecting/fiber optic system to not only provide higher qual ...

  2. Neuromorphic Processors for Next Generation Systems

    SBC: BASCOM HUNTER TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: H9

    In the latter half of the 20th century, microprocessors faithfully adhered to Moore’s law, the well-known formulation of exponentially improving performance. As Gordon Moore originally predicted in 1965, the density of transistors, clock speed, and power efficiency in microprocessors doubled approximately every 18 months for most of the past 60 years. Yet this trend began to languish over th ...

  3. Ultra-Lightweight, Ultra-Stable RoboSiC Additively Manufactured Lasercom Telescope

    SBC: Goodman Technologies LLC            Topic: H9

    Of interest to JPL, GRC and GSFC are laser communications telescopes (LCTs) with 30 to 100 cm clear aperture, wavefront error (WFE) less than 62 nm, cumulative WFE and transmission loss not to exceed 3-dB in the far field, advanced thermal and stray light design for operation while sun-pointing (3-degrees from the edge of the sun); -20° C to 50° C operational range (wider range preferred), ...

  4. Development of Fiber Reinforced Composite Feedstock for In-Space Manufacturing of High Strength Parts

    SBC: GeoComposites, LLC            Topic: H7

    GeoComposites, LLC, aims to develop the next generation of high performance fiber reinforced composite feedstock for in-space manufacturing of high strength parts via fused deposition modeling (FDM). Since plastics are inherently low in strength, additive manufactured plastic currently cannot compete with metallic parts. Failed parts on the International Space Station (ISS) and the genuine need fo ...

  5. Balanced Floating Piston Valve for Ultra-High Pressure, High-Volume Liquid and Gaseous Flow Control

    SBC: C-Suite Services, LLC            Topic: H10

    C-Suite Services, LLC (C-Suite) will produce at least one manufacture-ready, full-scale design for the licensed technology of the Balanced Floating Piston Valve. This design is intended as a “drop-in” replacement for an existing valve used in rocket engine component testing. The operating environment, pressures to 15,000 psi and flow rates of 1,000 lbm/sec of Gaseous Nitrogen, have pro ...

  6. Gas Inlet Sensor for Measuring Dust Particle Size Distribution and Concentration

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: H1

    In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) involves collecting and converting local resources into products that can be used to reduce mission mass, cost, and/or risk of human exploration. ISRU products that provide significant mission benefits with minimal infrastructure required are propellants, fuel cell reactants, and life support consumables. Production of mission consumables from in-situ Mars resou ...

  7. Near-Zero CTE 3D Printed RoboSiC Deployable Truss Core Structures with Active Precision Adjustment

    SBC: Goodman Technologies LLC            Topic: S2

    High-contrast (10-10) imaging and spectroscopy for exoplanet science is critically dependent on telescope optics and wavefront stability. A challenging requirement on the opto-mechanical system is that of wavefront error stability on the order of 10 pm RMS per wavefront control step (~10s of minutes).  Goodman Technologies proposes a purposefully engineered 2nd Generation structural-grade &ld ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. Millimeter Scale Magnetometer

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This Phase I SBIR project will investigate the feasibility of a miniature atomic magnetometer, both as a stable scalar device for calibrating fluxgate magnetometers in flight and also as a vector device capable of complimenting fluxgate magnetometers. Missions to Europa will seek to confirm that moon’s underground sea by measuring Europa’s effect on Jupiter’s magnetic field. &nbs ...

  9. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed.  The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium  to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through cross ...

  10. Multi-Physics NTR Safety Analyses

    SBC: Little Prairie Services            Topic: Z10

    Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) offers high promise to reduce launch mass, decrease mission costs and increase mission effectiveness, particularly for crewed missions to the planets. However, NTP has been plagued with high uncertainties in cost, schedule and safety, particularly launch safety. To reduce programmatic uncertainty, an unambiguous approach to documenting NTP safety prior to, during a ...
