The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until September, 2020.

  1. Antistatic Thermal Control Coatings

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic discharge control is vital for the health of any spacecraft. Exposure to charged particles in a space enviroment can lead to large charge differences across the craft, that, if no mechanism for controlled discharge is present, can destroy mission critical equipment. The preferred way of ESD control is to use conducting thermal control coatings. These coatings combine the ability to r ...

  3. Self-Deploying Foam Antenna Structures

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Inflatable or self-deployable systems offer the only practical way to achieve space deployed antennas with low mass at large aperture. In this Phase I program, open-celled rigid polyurethane foams were developed for use in self-deploying antenna structures. Advantages of such a system relative to current systems include high volumetric efficiency of packing, inherent restoring force, low (or no) o ...

  5. Spacesuit Monitor

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The concentration of carbon dioxide in exhaled breath is 3.8%; a concentration of 2% causes deepened breathing, and 4% causes a marked increase in respiration. These higher concentrations of CO2 also cause drowsiness and can be unsafe. Therefore, it is desirable to monitor the concentration of CO2 in exhaled breath to guarantee the safety of an astronaut in the dangerous extravehicular environment ...

  6. Biomolecular Construction of Optical Nanostructures

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Biology provides a vast number of examples of nanostructures produced at a level of precision that is superior to those that we can produce in the laboratory. The diversity of naturally occurring S-layers suggests that the nature of these self-assembled structures is genetically controlled and can therefore be manipulated through recombinant processes. In this Phase I research plan, Agave BioSyste ...

  7. Miniature Flow Cytometer and Cell Sorter for Use in Low Gravity

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional fluorescence-activated cell sorters (FACSs) are widely used to study eukaryotic cell populations. Although they provide impressively efficient sorting, they are costly, mechanically complex, and require large sample volumes and trained personnel for operation and maintenance. In addition, the footprint per unit separation is considerable and they typically require large input populati ...

  9. Fluorogenic Cell-Based Biosensors for Microbial Monitoring

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Great strides have been made in developing diagnostic systems for detecting and identifying specific pathogens and their toxins. However, these systems may be too specific and unable to detect newly emerging pathogens whose immunological or genetic profile is different than the normal complement of pathogens. The ideal system in an isolated environment such as a spacecraft would be one that provid ...
