  1. Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than the existing sensors, work with much smaller gas samples, and use much less power. The sensors were d ...

  2. Self-Contained Sub-Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, mapping, and survey applications. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages GNSS reference data from existing NOAA's Continuously Operational Ref ...

  3. Zero G Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: E103

    The Zero Gravity Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD) provides the ability to measure the mass of samples in a microgravity environment, like that found on the International Space Station (ISS). One of the primary measurements often taken during science experiments is mass. This is even more relevant in biology, where mass is often one of the key measurements taken for analysis. During the Phase I effo ...

  4. Integrated Computational System for Electrochemical Device Design and Simulation

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: Z104

    Illinois Rocstar LLC proposes to develop and demonstrate the use of an integrated computational environment and infrastructure for electrochemical device design and simulation: ICED. This environment integrates the user's personal computational environment with high performance simulation applications for materials and processes. The current state of the art for electrochemical device design utili ...

  5. High Power Betavoltaic Technology

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: Z2001

    The proposed innovation will dramatically improve the performance of tritium-powered betavoltaic batteries through the development of a high-aspect ratio, expanded surface area p/n junction composed of indium gallium phosphide. The enhanced surface area features will be built using reactive ion etch (RIE) modified germanium substrates via metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). The propo ...

  6. CubeSat High Impulse Propulsion System (CHIPS)

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: S303

    CU Aerospace proposes to perform design, fabrication, and ground test validation of a nanosat primary propulsion subsystem using non-toxic R134a propellant. Our approach, called CubeSat High Impulse Propulsion System (CHIPS), leverages CU Aerospace's very high efficiency warm-gas variant of an innovative resistojet that significantly boosts the performance of standard cold-gas systems with the exi ...

  7. Development of Advanced Anti-Reflection Coatings for High Performance Solar Energy Applications

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: S302

    MicroLink Devices will increase the efficiency of multi-junction solar cells by designing and demonstrating advanced anti-reflection coatings (ARCs) that will provide a better broadband spectral response than that of conventional anti-reflection coatings. Advanced coatings of this nature are needed to realize the full performance of the forthcoming generation of multi-junction solar cells, which ...

  8. Miniature Nontoxic Nitrous Oxide-Propane (MINNOP) Propulsion

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: S302

    ORBITEC proposes to develop the Miniature Nontoxic Nitrous Oxide-Propane (MINNOP) propulsion system, a small bipropellant propulsion system which we offer as an alternative to miniature hydrazine monopropellant thrusters for CubeSat-class spacecraft. As compared to state-of-the-art hydrazine systems, MINNOP propulsion will provide significant increases in specific impulse (in bipropellant mode) a ...

  9. Highly Conductive Polymer Electrolyte Impregnated 3d Li-Metal Negative Electrode

    SBC: Xerion Advanced Battery            Topic: Z102

    XABC (Xerion Advanced Battery Corp) proposes a novel anode with three unique features, each designed to 1) control or 2) prevent dendrite growth. The first feature is a 95% porous electrode architecture. This electrode is an open-cell, nanostructured conductive foam whose internal structures are conformal coated with lithium metal. Dendrites growing outward from an internal pore surface will propa ...

  10. High-Efficiency, Radiation-Hard, Lightweight IMM Solar Cells

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: S301

    Future NASA exploration missions require high specific power (>500 W/kg) solar arrays. To increase cell efficiency while reducing weight and maintaining structural integrity, we propose an approach to cell design that involves the use of quantum dots and epitaxial lift-off. In the near term, this approach will allow us to improve on what are currently the best space solar cells available in term ...
