  1. The Full Integration of a Portable Bacterial Concentrator with a Pathogen Detector Device

    SBC: OMNIVIS INC            Topic: 90

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes to integrate an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator with a handheld pathogen detection system to enable ultra-low cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including in Yemen, where in the first 5 months of 2020 has had 110,000 suspected cases. Current methods used to detect the chole ...

  2. A Scalable Gas-Particle Flow Simulation Tool for Lander Plume-Surface Interaction and Debris Prediction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T9

    Plume-regolith interaction during propulsive landing results in (1) the liberation of dust/debris particles that may collide and strike the landing vehicle and surrounding assets obscuring ground observation for safe landing and (2) craters that are formed on the landing surface, posing additional challenges to vehicle stability and surface operations. The Gas-Granular Flow Solver (GGFS) had previ ...

  5. Packaging and Manufacturing Processes to Enable Production of Very Large Solar Sails for Next Generation Missions

    SBC: Nexolve Holding Company, LLC            Topic: Z10

    The experience of building the NEA Scout solar Sail resulted in the realization that new manufacturing technology would be required to build solar sails significantly larger than NEA Scout. During Phase I, NeXolve successfully developed and demonstrated fab and fold processes and scalable-modular pathfinder mechanisms that can be fully developed to support fabrication and packaging of larger solar ...

  7. Dual Mode Green Monopropellant Propulsion System for Interplanetary Missions

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: T2

    Today many spacecraft carry two propulsion options: high thrust required for high acceleration maneuvers such as orbit insertion and rapid response; and low thrust required for station keeping and less critical maneuvers. A new class of non-toxic monopropellants, such as AF-M315E and LMP-103S, perform well in both high and low thrust regimes. Significant investments are maturing both monopropellan ...
