The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: None

    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if non-axial flow exists in a stack.Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow ...

  2. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: Omnivis LLC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  3. Development of a Neutron-based Nondestructive Test Method for Concrete Petrography and Chemical Analysis

    SBC: TOURNEY CONSULTING GROUP, LLC            Topic: None

    To evaluate the technical feasibility of prompt gamma neutron activation (PGAA) as an alternative to a set of standard destructive tests of concrete petrography including aggregate type, water/cement ratio, aggregate/binder ratio, density, chloride content and chloride bulk diffusion constant; and to determine the specifications for the design of a dedicated commercial laboratory-based PGAA facili ...

  4. Dual Plane 3D Compton Scattering Imager with Pixelated CZT Detectors for 1-10MeV Gamma Ray

    SBC: H3D            Topic: None

    Phase I has proven that the current setup achieves better than 8mm spatial resolution for 2.2MeV prompt gammas. However, 1mm spatial resolution presents a significant challenge for the current setup due in part to limited timing resolution and count rate. A new analog ASIC will be developed to replace the current analog ASIC that will have better timing resolution and deliver higher count rates. I ...

  5. Feedback Sensors for Closed Loop Additive In-Space Manufacturing

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: H7

    This solicitation calls for online quality control to be applied to In-Space Manufactured (ISM) additive manufactured parts.  Our proposed approach is integrated precision scanning of the additive manufactured (AM) parts and feedback of that data back into AM layer by layer process control.  The goal is to augment Space Manufacturing AM process controls with verifiable feedback enabling ...

  6. Ultra-Compact, Field-Deployable, Quantum-Compatible Receiver for Free-Space Optical Communication

    SBC: Quantum Opus, LLC            Topic: H9

    Quantum Opus is excited to propose compactifying, enclosing, and automating ALL of the required vacuum, cryogenics, and electrical systems of a superconducting nanowire single-photon detection system into a 14-inch tall by 17-inch wide by 18-inch deep package and re-engineering the optical collection mechanisms to be compatible with existing NASA telescope infrastructure. The end product will be a ...

  7. Three Band Thermal Infrared Detector for CubeSats and UAS

    SBC: XIOMAS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: S1

    The overall objective of the SBIR is to develop a high performance, inexpensive, three-band thermal infrared camera system, suitable for deployment in Unmanned Airborne Systems and CubeSats.  This imaging system will be capable of mapping thermal features on the surface of the earth with a high revisit rate and high spatial resolution.  Xiomas believes the Three Band Infrared Detector (T ...

  8. High Performance PMD

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: Z10

    To achieve the full potential of PMD/LAD technology for high performance space exploration missions mass reduction is essential. Screen channel acquisition devices are an interesting approach for future spacecraft using cryogenic propellants.  However, traditional manufacturing techniques (i.e. metal-based) are heavy and have reliability issues.  To achieve desired mass savings and scree ...

  9. Dust-Free Fabrication of Uranium and Plutonium Oxide Powders for Radioisotope Systems, Nuclear Thermal Rockets, Nuclear Electric Propulsion, and Surface Power Reactors

    SBC: Amphionic LLC            Topic: Z10

    This SBIR project will develop a manufacturing method for nuclear fuels that can be universally applied for space-power systems that utilizes a dust-free uranium oxide production unit.  For the particular application to nuclear thermal propulsion, in which one wishes, (1) to maximize hydrogen propellant heating, and (2) to reduce fission product gas release and reactor particulates into ...

  10. Bifunctional Membrane for High Energy, Long Shelf Life Li-S Batteries

    SBC: Navitas Advanced Solutions Group, LLC            Topic: Z1

    The adoption of high energy lithium sulfur batteries hinges on significant improvements in charge/recharge cycle life.  Cycle life is limited by migration of dissolved polysulfide species which creates an electrochemical short circuit.  In this NASA SBIR, Navitas Systems proposes to develop an atomically precise and bifunctional membrane separator for lithium sulfur batteries that impede ...
