  1. Light Weight Insulated Spherical Cryotank

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: H204

    GTL proposes a dramatic improvement in launch and space vehicle technology for NASA space and exploration missions. The modified BHL (mBHL) technology provides significant reductions in weight while exceeding the helium permeability requirements needed to meet NASA long term cryogenic propellant storage requirements. The proposed effort builds upon a substantial DARPA investment in BHL cryotank ...

  2. 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 ...

  6. Multifunctional BHL Radiation Shield

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: H1101

    Advances in radiation shielding technology remain an important challenge for NASA in order to protect their astronauts, particularly as NASA grows closer to manned missions to the moon and Mars. Polyethylene is a readily available and structurally sound thermoplastic that has recently gained a fair amount of notoriety as an effective radiation shield. GTL is proposing to incorporate polyethylene ...

  7. Space Plastic Recycling System

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: H1403

    Techshot's proposed Space Plastic Recycler (SPR) is an automated closed loop plastic recycling system that allows the automated conversion of disposable ISS packaging materials into suitable 3D printer filament. The SPR includes a receptacle to hold materials to be recycled, a grinding system to cut materials into small pieces, an auger system to transport the shredded material to a heated nozzle ...

    SBIR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. Advanced Hybrid Stage

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: T101

    The proposed technology builds off GTL's advanced solid ramjet fuel. The method uses additive manufacturing methods to produce an innovative new type of fuel grain that regresses quickly and has a high Isp and combustion efficiency. With this technology, the performance of a liquid rocket engine can be had with a hybrid rocket system. This technology allows for a simple, low cost, high performanc ...
