  1. 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 ...

  2. Resilience-Based Optimization of Space Systems

    SBC: Magnin, Michael            Topic: H6

    With future missions of increasing complexity, duration, distance, and uncertainty, there has been a growing need for methods and tools that can permit the effective formation of early stage conceptual designs that are not only cost-effective, but also productive and resilient to failures. Current approaches are mostly tailored to evaluating independent systems but do not necessarily scale well to ...

  3. Improved X-Ray Filters with Al-Sc Alloys and Nanoparticle-Doped Polyimide

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: S1

    The next generation of detectors for high energy observatories needs a significant improvement in filter technology, as identified in the SBIR solicitation and as a PCOS technology gap. We propose a two-fold change in the state of the art of thin film EUV and x-ray filters, using Al-Sc alloy in place of Al and adding Au nanoparticles to polyimide. Al-Sc alloys show smaller grain sizes that should ...

  4. Novel Technologies for Efficient NTP Reactor Decay Heat Removal and Utilization

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: Z10

    In this SBIR, Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) will investigate and develop a set of novel technologies to minimize the amount of hydrogen needed for reactor decay heat removal after the shutdown of Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems. Decay heat is the energy deposited during the decay of radioactive fission products after the reactor shuts down. Its management is a critical issue for N ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Low Cost Nano and Micro Satellite Launch Stage and Automated Hypersonic Test Platform

    SBC: HyperSciences, Inc            Topic: Z9

    HyperSciences, Inc. is proposing is a robust, cost effective, automated hypersonic launch system and encapsulated projectile bus  capable of delivering small payloads to altitudes as high as 100Km. HyperSciences uses our proven, existing and patented Ram accelerator-based launch architecture and in-ground launch site based at Spaceport America to launch payloads at greater than Mach 5. This c ...

  7. AstroPorter

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: Z5

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop a collaborative robotics platform, AstroPorter, for multi-agent coordinated tasks on the International Space Station (ISS). TUI will develop an AstroPorter payload for Astrobee to perform collaborative robotics tasks with TUI’s MANTIS - an EXPRESS Rack payload with a robotic arm for telerobotic operation of experiments on the ISS. AstroPorter ...

  8. Electromagnetic Characterization of Advanced Composites by Voxel-Based Inverse Methods

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: Z11

    The nondestructivecharacterization of advanced composites, such ascarbon-fiber reinforced polymers (cfrp), by electromagnetic means iswell established [6]-[24].  What isneeded to advance the state of the art are sophisticated inversionalgorithms that allow layup and impact damage to be determined inlocalized regions, which means that the more traditional methods ofmodel-based inverse methods ...

  9. Metal Advanced Manufacturing Bot-Assisted Assembly (MAMBA) Process

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H7

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop the Metal Advanced Manufacturing Bot-Assisted Assembly (MAMBA) Process, a robotically managed metal press and milling system used to create precision parts on orbit.  This manufacturing process provides an alternative to 3D printing metals in space, which is difficult due to space environment, feedstock safety concerns, and print quality issue ...

  10. MakerSat

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: Z8

    As SmallSats become the “Satellite of Choice” for NASA and other Government and Private Space Missions, there is a growing need to enable SmallSats to perform “Long Baseline” and “Spatially Diverse” observation, measurement and collection missions.  Traditionally, these types of missions would be performed either by using formation flying or by using &ldquo ...
