  1. Surface Modification of Exfoliated Graphite Nano-Reinforcements

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A205

    Phase I results showed that two surface treatments, oxidative plasma and reactive finishes, are effective means of modifying the surface chemistry of exfoliated graphite nanoflakes. The surface modifications provide a more compatible surface energy for dispersion in polymers and create well-bonded interfaces with the polymer matrix. In order to be cost effective for NASA and commercial applicati ...

  2. Light-Curing Structural Tape for In-Space Repair

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1203

    NASA has numerous requirements for in-space repair capabilities to aid future missions beyond earth orbit. A subset of these requirements is adhesive patch materials that provide permanent or temporary repair of a wide variety of surfaces with minimal surface preparation. Prior work on light (UV and visible) curing composite matrix resins for rigidizing inflatable spacecraft shows that there is ...

  5. Carbon Nanotube-Based Adsorbents for Ultrafine Particulate and Volatile Air Contaminants

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: T501

    While the protective qualities of activated carbon have been enhanced by the addition of specific metal salts, activated carbon technology has changed little over the last 60 years. In this Phase I, Agave BioSystems and the Universities Space Research Association, propose to develop next generation smart adsorbents using novel carbon nanotube (CNT)-based structures for the adsorption and destruct ...

  6. Monitoring Microbes in the Spacecraft Environment by Mass Spectrometry of Ribosomal RNA

    SBC: Biotex, Inc.            Topic: X1102

    The unique stresses in the spacecraft environment including isolation, containment, weightlessness, increased radiation exposure, and enhanced microbial contamination have resulted in a compromise of the immune system in every human or animal that has ever flown in space. Identifying and monitoring the microbial population in the spacecraft environment has therefore been identified as a key maint ...

  7. Algorithms and Software Architecture for the Production of Information Products From LIDAR

    SBC: Diamond Data Systems            Topic: E303

    Diamond Data Systems (DDS) proposes the development of a new advanced architecture, algorithms and software to support the end-to-end processing of LIDAR data to derive useful information products such as Digital Elevation Models (DEM). The approach is innovative in three ways. First, it proposes a complete end-to-end system instead of a solution that addresses only a single step of the complex ...

  8. 600 Volt Stretched Lens Array for Solar Electric Propulsion

    SBC: ENTECH, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Over the past six years, ENTECH, Auburn, NASA, and other organizations have developed a new space photovoltaic array called the Stretched Lens Array (SLA), which offers unprecedented performance (e.g., >80 kW/cu.m. stowed power, >300 W/sq.m. areal power, and >300 W/kg specific power in the very near term) and cost-effectiveness (>75% savings in $/W compared to planar high-efficiency arrays). SLA ...

  9. Compact Transcranial Doppler (TCD) for Bioastronautics Research

    SBC: GENEXPRESS INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: B303

    Returning men to the Moon and manned Mars missions will require advanced bioastronanutics research. One possible risk is Decompression Sickness (DCS) resulting from extravehicular activity (EVA), after exposure to habitat conditions that would be generated using available Moon or Martian resources. A key research tool to measure the onset of DCS is a Transcranial Doppler (TCD) instrument. The p ...
