  1. A Compact Medical Oxygen Generator for Spacecraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: X1001

    An on-board oxygen concentrator is required during long duration manned space missions to supply medical oxygen. Commercial medical oxygen generators are pressure swing adsorption (PSA) based systems that use nitrogen selective zeolites and are mostly large, massive, and power intensive. TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) proposes to develop a small, lightweight, portable oxygen generator that uses a high c ...

  2. A Long-Duration Commercial Microgravity Mouse Habitat: Waste/Odor Technologies

    SBC: Bioastronautical Systems Development Co.            Topic: N/A

    The Bioastronautical Systems Development Company (BSDC) proposes to develop habitat technologies for conducting long-term commercial research with mice in microgravity. Our research addresses solicitation section B4.02 Space Commercialization for the design/development of microgravity payloads for space station applications that lead to commercial products or services. In partnership with BioServe ...

  3. Advanced Technology Cloud Particle Probe for UAS

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA has initiated a program to explore the upper troposphere/lower stratosphere (UT/LS) using the Global Hawk Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), which has a payload of over 1500 lb (680 kg), max ceiling of 65,000 ft (20 km) at a cruising speed of 335 kts and mission endurance of over 31 hours. These attributes make the Global Hawk UAS especially valuable as a tool for investigating subvisible cirrus ...

  4. An Autonomous Wireless Instrumentation Network for Antarctic Research

    SBC: VEXCEL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    In November 1998 a network of seismic stations was deployed by S. Anandakrishnan (now at Penn State) and others in West Antarctica. These autonomous stations returned state-of-health data via satellite, and stored high-volume instrument data for later retrieval. The satellite links demonstrated a novel and sophisticated application of technology to the problem of retrieving in situ data from harsh ...

  5. Application of Zeeko's Novel Random Tool Path for Improvement of Surface PSD

    SBC: Zeeko Technologies, LLC            Topic: S205

    A well known problem in the fabrication of aspheric optical surfaces lies in surface irregularities inherent in the figuring process. Low-spatial frequency errors (figure errors) cause distortion in the system wavefront, resulting in degradation of the point spread function. Mid-spatial frequency errors cause small-angle scattering of light (flare), which reduces image contrast. High-spatial fr ...

  6. Biodegradable Nanocomposites for Advanced Packaging

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TDA Research, Inc. proposes to develop a biodegradable food packaging material that will address the issues of extended-life food storage and waste disposal in space. On long-term space missions, on board the International Space Station, or on future lunar or planetary facilities, a biodegradable food packaging plastic could be disposed of in composting environments that support agricultural produ ...

  7. Charlotte: Scientific Modeling and Simulation Under the Software as a Service Paradigm

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: S605

    NASA spends considerable effort supporting the efforts of collaborating researchers. These researchers are interested in interacting with scientific models provided by NASA and they are located throughout the world. The process of distributing legacy research codes to this disparate group of researches and assisting them with the compilation of these codes is time consuming and there for costly. ...

  8. Chromatid Painting for Chromosomal Inversion Detection

    SBC: KromaTiD, Inc.            Topic: X1302

    We propose a novel approach to the detection of chromosomal inversions. Transmissible chromosome aberrations (translocations and inversions) have profound genetic effects, such as disrupting regulatory sequences that control gene expression, or creating genetic chimeras. These chromosome aberrations play a causative role in cancer, and they are induced by radiation. As such, chromosome aberrati ...

  9. Cockpit System Situational Awarness Modeling Tool

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    The Cockpit System Situational Awareness Modeling Tool will use the principles of discrete event simulation to predict pilot situational awareness (SA). The human performance modeling environment of IMPRINT combined with the cognitive modeling tool ACT-R will provide a powerful tool for the designers of cockpit systems. IMPRINT can already be used to predict pilot workload and assess the effects o ...

  10. Compact Monitor for Airborne Carbon Dioxide Measurements


    Eltron Research & Development proposes the development of a lightweight, battery-powered instrument for accurately and rapidly monitoring the local concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. In our Phase I program, an advanced CO2 analyzer will be developed with a novel optical sensor employing a sample concentrator in conjunction with single-beam, dual-wavelength infrared measuremen ...
