  1. Snap Freezer for ISS

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: H1401

    Frozen tissue samples represent the state of the art in tissue preservation in many molecular analysis techniques as well as in in membrane analysis using free-fracture techniques. Rapid or snap freezing eliminates the artifact caused by ice crystal formation within the tissues. Ice crystal nucleation and growth occurs between 0 degrees C and -20 degrees C typically. To avoid this damage and mi ...

  2. Rodent Centrifuge Facility for ISS Life and Microgravity Science Research

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: H1401

    According to the decadal report titled, Life and Physical Sciences Research for a New Era of Space Exploration, a Report, "…the AHB Panel would be remiss if it did not strongly recommend an animal centrifuge capable of accommodating rats/mice at variable gravity levels." In response, Techshot proposes to develop a Rodent Centrifuge Facility (RCF) that utilizes eight EXPRESS Rack locker locat ...

  3. Electrical Microgravity Research in Colloidal Development Platform

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: H1401

    The proposed innovation is a platform upon which to perform high voltage Electrical microGravity Research In colloidal Development (E-GRID). This platform will facilitate safe experimentation in space with colloidal samples at high voltages. E-GRID will be comprised of three components: the experiment module, which houses the colloidal sample and electrodes; the high voltage safety tether, which p ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF GENERALIZED COMMUNICATIONS MODELS BY COMPOSITION FROM MODULES

    SBC: Pritsker Corp.            Topic: N/A

    ONE PROMISING APPROACH TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF GENERALIZED MODELS OF COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS IS COMPOSITION OF MODELS FROM COMPONENT MODEL MODULES. IN THIS APPROACH, MODELS OF INDIVIDUAL SYSTEM COMPONENTS ARE DEVELOPED AND SUBSEQUENTLY LINKED INTO A MODEL BY MODEL COMPOSITION SOFTWARE. AN INTEGRATED SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT SUPPORTS THIS TECHNOLOGY BY MANAGING A MODELBASE OF MODEL MODULES PROVIDING FOR TH ...
