  1. Hybrid Cooling Loop Technology for Robust High Heat Flux Cooling

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes to develop a hybrid cooling loop and cold plate technology for space systems thermal management. The proposed technology combines the high heat flux performance of active cooling loops with the effective fluid management of passive cooling devices. The result is a simple, robust and high performance cooling technology that allows maximum degree of ...

  2. High Temperature Capacitors for Power Converters

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: E208

    In this SBIR program, TRS Technologies and its subsidiary, Centre Capacitor, will develop a new family of high volumetric efficiency, high temperature capacitors based on high Curie temperature relaxor-ferroelectric ceramics that operate at temperatures far beyond conventional X7R and X8R dielectric formulations (125C to 150C). These new higher temperature (>300oC) materials will be suited for ad ...

  3. Advanced Actuator Concepts for High Precision Deformable Mirrors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: S303

    TRS Technologies proposes to develop a variety of single crystal actuators for adaptive optics deformable mirrors. Single crystal piezoelectric actuators are proposed as a means of increasing actuator authority while maintaining strain precision for adaptive optics deformable mirrors used in future space observatory missions. Single crystals based on PZN-PT or PMN-PT represent a revolutionary ad ...

  4. Single Crystal Piezomotor for Large Stroke, High Precision and Cryogenic Actuations

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: S205

    TRS Technologies proposes a novel single crystal piezomotor for large stroke, high precision, and cryogenic actuations with capability of position set-hold with power-off. The proposed concept will advance the state-of-art cryogenic actuations considering the excellent cryogenic properties (with d33 and d31 at 30K similar or higher than that of PZT at room temperature) and the great electromechan ...

  5. High Temperature Electrostrictive Ceramics

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: S402

    TRS Technologies proposes to develop high temperature electrostrictors from bismuth-based ferroelectrics. These materials will exhibit high strain and low loss in the 400 to 500?C temperature range, enabling the development of robotic components such as high power ultrasonic transducers and high force actuators for NASA?s planned missions to Venus. Such devices are currently made from piezoelect ...

  7. Bodies in Space- Online Education for Secondary School Students

    SBC: Clinical Tools, Inc            Topic: B701

    This SBIR application proposes to develop, evaluate, and implement an Internet-based educational outreach site focusing on the varied biological effects of microgravity. We will develop a website, BodiesInSpace.com, to host the curriculum and courses on the Internet. The curriculum development process will be based on reviews of existing secondary school biology curricula and current NASA public ...

  8. Advanced Flow Analyses in Complex Feed Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A504

    The development of simulation technology is proposed for carrying out high-fidelity transient analyses of systems that support experimental rocket testing such as control valves, feed system elements, pressure regulators and other flow control elements. The simulation technology comprises of a generalized multi-element unstructured framework (CRUNCH CFD) with integrated sub-models for grid adapt ...

  9. Modeling Unsteady Cavitation Effects and Dynamic Loads in Cryogenic Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A406

    There currently are no analytical or CFD tools that can reliably predict unsteady cavitation dynamics in liquid rocket cryogenic systems. Analysis of cavitating cryogenic systems presents a challenge, and is poorly understood, because the phase change process couples with the temperature fluctuations in the fluid. In particular when large scale flow unsteadiness is present at low-flow, off-desig ...

  10. The Effects of Radiation and Thermal Stability of Sm-Co High Temperature Magnets For High Power Ion Propulsion

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: T302

    Since high temperature Sm-Co based magnets were developed, a number of new applications have been introduced. NASA?s Xe+ ion propulsion engine used in Deep Space I (DS-I) is a prime example. The magnets with coating perform well at temperatures up to 550?C. Magnets without coating perform well in the current 10 kW Xe+ ion engines in the vacuum which exists in space and at temperatures up to 400? ...
