  1. Catalytic Decomposition of Gaseous Byproducts from Heat Melt Waste Compaction

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: B306

    Several solid waste management systems currently under development result in the production of gas-phase organic contaminants which, due to the periodic and unpredictable nature of solid wastes and contaminants produced by these systems, cannot be treated by the Trace Contaminant Control System. Two examples of these are the Heat Melt Compaction System under development at NASA - Ames Research Ce ...

  2. Model-Based Design Tools for Extending COTS Components To Extreme Environments

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: S402

    The innovation in this project is model-based design (MBD) tools for predicting the performance and useful life of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components and COTS-based systems beyond their rated temperature range. Phase I results have shown the feasibility of these tools, which consist of novel modeling tools and advanced system and data analysis capability. The modeling tools differ from all ...

  3. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  4. Gradient Interphase, 3-D Fiber Architecture CMC's

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A clear need exists for the next generation of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) for Thermal Protection Systems (TPS), propulsion hardware, and other high temperature applications. No "off-the-shelf" materials and/or processes capable of meeting NASA's goals are available, yet completely integrating a unique combination of commercially available or nearly commercially available technologies can m ...

  5. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...

  6. High-Density Diffraction Imaging and Non-Imaging Grating Elements for EUV and X-ray Spectroscopy Fabricated by DUV Reduction Photolithography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: S404

    There is a need for lightweight high-density (4000+ lines/mm) novel diffraction grating elements in modern telescopes to advance EUV and X-ray astrophysics. Current grating technologies (ruling and holographic beam interference) do not provide optimal solution for all grating requirements. In response to NASA request, we propose to apply state-of-the art DUV reduction photolithographic tools dev ...

  7. Mesoporous Catalysts for Ambient Temperature Aqueous Phase Oxidation

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    Innovative ambient temperature oxidation catalysts based upon transition metal containing mesoporous supports are proposed. The self-assembly of amphiphilic surfactants, co-solvents, and oxide network formers is utilized to produce monolithic gels that can be readily converted to amorphous mesoporous oxide structures by thermal treatment. Using this approach, open structured mixed transition metal ...

  8. Microwave Powered Solid Waste Stabilization and Water Recovery

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    A Microwave Powered Solid Waste Stabilization (MPSWS) system is proposed as the primary step in the treatment of solid waste materials generated during extended manned space missions. The proposed system will recover water initially contained within the wastes and stabilize the residue with respect to microbial growth. The dry waste may then be safely stored or passed on to the next solid waste tr ...

  9. Microgravity Compatible Gas-Liquid Separation using Capillary Pressure Gradients

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: X1207

    An innovative microgravity and hypogravity compatible Gas-Liquid Separator (GLS) is proposed. This novel GLS consists of an ordered array of variable sized water repellant granular particles that result in a spatial surface energy density gradient within the GLS. The resultant capillary pressure causes gas and water to flow toward different outlet GLS positions. The device contains no moving pa ...

  10. Microwave Powered Gravitationally Independent Medical Grade Water Generation

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: X1103

    An innovative microwave system is proposed for the continuous production of medical grade water. This system will utilize direct absorption of microwave radiation to rapidly heat potable water well above normal autoclave conditions, achieving equivalent microbial lethality in much shorter times. High thermal efficiencies will be gained by placement of the microwave antennae directly in the flowin ...
