  1. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A LIQUID-SORBENT/MEMBRANE-CONTACTOR SUBSYSTEM FOR CO2 REMOVAL

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    LARGE CREW NUMBERS, LONG-DURATION MISSIONS, AND SEVERE LAUNCH AND RESUPPLY PENALTIES MAKE THE DEVELOPMENT OF REGENERATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL AND LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS (ECLSS) A NECESSITY FOR BASES ON THE MOON OR MARS, AS WELL AS FOR DEEP-SPACE FLIGHTS. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP AN INNOVATIVE, CONTINUOUS ECLSS SYSTEMFOR CARBON DIOXIDE REMOVAL. THE FOCUS OF THE PHASE I PRO ...

  3. MEMBRANE-BASED HIGH-PRESSURE GAS-DEHYDRATION MODULE

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NASA IS DEVELOPING WATER-ELECTROLYSIS CELLS TO RECHARGE THE EXTRAVEHICULAR MOBILITY UNIT (EMU) OXYGEN BOTTLES IN FLIGHT. THESE CELLS PRODUCE HIGH-PRESSURE (UP TO 6000-PSI) OXYGEN AND HYDROGEN STREAMS SATURATED WITH WATER VAPOR. THESE GAS STREAMS MUST BE DEHYDRATED TO VERY LOW WATER-CONTENT LEVELS--TYPICALLY AT LEAST TO -70 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT DEW-POINT TEMPERATURE--TO PREVENT VALVES FROM FREEZING O ...

  4. TRANSPORT PROPERTIES IN NON-EQUILIBRIUM AIR MIXTURES

    SBC: Hansen Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL IS (1) TO DETERMINE HOW CLOSELY SIMPLE, WEIGHTED CROSS SECTIONS CAN MATCH THE COLLISION INTEGRALS OF THE CHAPMAN-COWLING FORMULATION, AS A FUNCTION OF TEMPERATURE; (2) TO DEMONSTRATE THAT SIMPLE FORMULAE FOR VISCOSITY, THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY, AND MASS DIFFUSION OF GAS MIXTURES APPROXIMATE THE FUNCTIONAL FORM OF MORE EXACT MODELS; AND (3) TO FIND EMPIRICAL ADJUSTMENTS OF THE CROSS SECTIO ...

  5. NONINTRUSIVE FAST RESPONSE OXYGEN MONITORING SYSTEM FOR HIGHTEMPERATURE FLOWS

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A FAST-RESPONSE METHOD FOR MEASUREMENT OF MOLECULAR OXYGEN CONCENTRATIONS IN HIGH TEMPERATURE FLOWS IS NEEDED FOR WIND TUNNEL RESEARCH ON HYPERSONIC AIR-BREATHING ENGINES AS WELL AS OTHER APPLICATIONS IN COMBUSTION RESEARCH OR CONTROL. THE PROPOSED INNOVATION WILL UTILIZE INEXPENSIVE ROOM TEMPERATURE LASER DIODES TO MEASURE ABSORPTION BY OXYGEN AT NEAR-INFRARED WAVELENGTHS. THESE LASERS WILL BE US ...

  6. COMBUSTION DIAGNOSTICS FOR MICROGRAVITY RESEARCH USING NEAR-IR DIODE LASERS

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. CATALYTIC METHODS USING MOLECULAR OXYGEN FOR TREATMENT OF PMMS AND ECLSS WASTE STREAMS

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT TREATMENT METHODS SUCH AS PHASE CHANGE, SORPTION AND MEMBRANE SEPARATION TECHNIQUES DO NOT REMOVE LOW MOLECULAR WEIGHT POLAR ORGANIC MOLECULES SUCH AS ALCOHOLS, KETONES AND AMIDES. A CATALYTIC OXIDATION METHOD USING MOLECULAR OXYGEN IS PROPOSED THAT WILL OXIDIZE THESE TYPES OF MOLECULES TO SPECIES THAT CAN BE REMOVED BY EXISTING TREATMENT METHODS. THE PROPOSED CATALYTIC OXIDATION METHOD EL ...

  8. REGENERABLE BIOCIDE DELIVERY UNIT

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    THE POTABLE WATER SYSTEM ON THE SPACE SHUTTLE USES A MICROBIAL CHECK VALVE (MCV) AS A BIOCIDE GENERATOR. THE MCV IS A REPLACEABLE CARTRIDGE THAT IS PACKED WITH A SPECIALIODINATED ION EXCHANGE RESIN. THIS RESIN CONTAINS IODINE WHICH IS RELEASED INTO THE WATER AS IT PASSES THROUGH THE RESIN AT A LEVEL ESSENTIALLY INDEPENDENT OF FLOW RATE, AND WITHOUT NEED OF INSTRUMENTATION OR CONTROLS. THE PRESENT ...

  9. SINGLE PHASE SPACE LAUNDRY

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    THE BASELINE DESIGN OF NASA'S SPACE STATION INCLUDES A CLOTHES LAUNDRY FACILITY. FOAMING AND AIR ENTRAINMENT IN THE MICROGRAVITY OF SPACE CAUSE SERIOUS MATERIALS HANDLING PROBLEMS. ANTIFOAMS ADD CONTAMINANTS THAT MUST BE REMOVED IN THE WATER RECLAMATION SYSTEM. PHASE SEPARATORS ADD ADDITIONAL WEIGHT AND POWER. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SINGLE PHASE LAUNDERING APPARATUS WILL ALLEVIATE THE REQUIREMENTS F ...

  10. THERMALLY DESORBABLE TOXIN AND ODOR CONTROL CARTRIDGE

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    A NUMBER OF SPACE STATION SYSTEMS UTILIZE AIR STREAMS TO TRANSPORT MATERIALS OR FOR VENTILATION. A REQUIREMENT EXISTS FOR A LIGHT WEIGHT, LOW POWER, REGENERABLE AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM FOR THE REMOVAL OF TRACE CONTAMINANTS BEFORE THESE STREAMS ARE RETURNED TO THE CABIN. THESE CONTAMINANTS INCLUDE A WIDE RANGE OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS, WHICH ARE ARTIFACTS OF HUMAN METABOLISM. SPECIFIC REGENERABLE SORBE ...
