  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. A Balloon-Borne Open-Path Cavity Ringdown Spectrometer for Measuring Atmospheric Extinction and Validating Remote Sensing Products

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: S1

    Aerosol extinction measurements are crucial to understanding the effects of atmospheric particles on ozone depletion (stratosphere), radiation (stratosphere and troposphere), visibility (troposphere) and public health (boundary layer).nbsp; Despite the acute need, no existing instrument can measure direct, in situ aerosol extinction profiles from the ground to the mid-stratosphere.nbsp; Satellite- ...

  6. Aerodynamically Stable DragSails for Spacecraft Deorbit

    SBC: Vestigo Aerospace LLC            Topic: Z8

    The safe disposal of spacecraft upon mission completion is necessary to preserve the utility of high-value orbits. It is forecasted that up to 2,600 nanosatellites and microsatellites will be launched into orbit over the next five years, and plans for large commercial constellations consisting of thousands of small satellites in low Earth orbit are currently in development. nbsp;NASArsquo;s Small ...

  7. AMBEC: Advanced Micro Brayton Energy Conversion

    SBC: ExoTerra Resource, LLC            Topic: S3

    Many of NASAs high priority missions in the next decade are located in extreme environments with low, inconsistent or no sunlight.nbsp; In these cases, NASA has traditionally used RTGs.nbsp; However, RTGs are inefficient (lt;8%), with specific powers of just 2.7 W/kg.nbsp; Complicating issues is the scarcity of GPHS units due to a long drought of plutonium production.nbsp; Even with a restart in p ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. An Airborne Continuous Flow Diffusion Chamber for Measuring Ice Nucleating Particles

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: S1

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding climate and environmental change, a NASA objective. The formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles (INP), and has major implications for precipitation and cloud properties. Observational capabilities are required to advance understanding o ...
