  1. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  2. Low-Cost Manufacturing Technique for Advanced Regenerative Cooling for In-Space Cryogenic Engines

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: H202

    The goal of the proposed effort is to demonstrate feasibility of using selective laser melting (SLM, an emerging manufacturing technique) to manufacture a subscale combustion chamber liner that features an advanced regenerative cooling technique that combines high performance with low pressure drop. SLM enables the ability to "print" the advanced regenerative liner in mere hours, despit ...

  3. Advanced Nanostructured Cathode for Ultra High Specific Energy Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: H802

    Integrate advanced nanotechnology with energy storage technology to develop advanced cathode materials for use in Li-ion batteries while maintaining a high level of safety, stability, and cycle life, allowing the cathodes to be tailored to provide very high specific energy or very high specific power depending on the relative ratio of the three components-active material, current conductors/collec ...

  4. Design and Development of a Compact and Rugged Phase and Fluorescence Microscope for Space Utilization

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: E103

    In this SBIR Phase 1 we propose to develop a novel microscope by integrating Fourier phase contrast microscopy (FPCM) and epi-fluorescence microscopy. In FPCM, the high degree coherence of low power laser source provides well resolved spatial frequency bands in the Fourier plane and the retardation is generated by photo-thermally induced phase transitions in a liquid crystal by varying the intens ...

  5. Nano-structures Enhanced Novel Composite Electrode Material for Batteries

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: H1002

    Integrate advanced nanotechnology with energy storage technology to develop advanced cathode material for use in Li-ion batteries while maintaining high level of safety, stability and cycle life, allowing the cathodes to be tailored to provide very high specific energy or very high specific power depending on the relative ratio of the three components- active material, current conductors/collector ...

  6. Particle Flow Physics Modeling for Extreme Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T403

    The liberation of particles induced by rocket plume flow from spacecraft landing on unprepared regolith of the Moon, Mars, and other destinations poses high mission risks for robotic and human exploration activities. This process occurs in a combination of "extreme environments" that combine low gravity, little or no atmosphere, with rocket exhaust gas flow that is supersonic and partial ...

  7. Efficient Conversion of Carbon Dioxide into Methane using 3rd Generation Ionic Liquids

    SBC: AZ Technology Inc            Topic: H101

    This work directly addresses a technology of interest listed in Section 9, sub-section H1.01 In-Situ Resource Utilization, specifically "Highly efficient reactors for carbon monoxide/carbon dioxide (CO/CO2) conversion into methane (CH4)."The proposal will investigate combining recent work that demonstrates outstanding CO2 sorption by third generation ionic liquids (ILs) without an increa ...

  8. Fine Grained Tungsten Claddings for Cermet Based NTP Systems

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: H202

    In October 2011, NASA initiated the Nuclear Cryogenic Propulsion Stage (NCPS) program to evaluate the feasibility and affordability of Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP). A critical aspect of the program is to develop a robust, stable nuclear fuel. One of the nuclear fuel configurations currently being evaluated is a cermet-based material comprised of uranium dioxide particles encased in a tungste ...

  9. Radiation-Hardened Memristor-based Memory for Extreme Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: H602

    NASA space exploration missions require radiation-hardened memory technologies that can survive and operate over a wide temperature range. Memristors (memory-resistors) are a promising technology for the next generation of non-volatile memory (NVM) applications and offer a highly-desirable combination of density, access speed, and power. Early investigations have also shown that memristors have hi ...

  10. Solid Rocket Motor for Ultralow Temperature Operation During the Mars Sample Return Mission

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: S403

    A small Mars (or other celestial body) ascent vehicle is unlikely to achieve the necessary propellant fraction required to achieve orbit. Scaling down of liquid propulsion systems, as shown in the figure, is difficult. In the 100-kg class of vehicles, liquid propellant vehicle designers should expect a propellant fraction of only 0.75. In contrast, solid rocket motors (SRM) scale down much easi ...
