  4. MicroSAFE (Stress Analysis and Forecasted Endurance)

    SBC: INVOCON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The NASA SLI is to determine design approaches to a new space launch vehicle that can reduce the costs and minimize risks. Significant amounts of the cost associated with operation of the current Shuttle involves manual inspections. The challenge is to determine a means of more cost effective inspections. Proposed herein is a means for reducing the need for manual inspections while improving the q ...

  5. Wireless Ethernet-based Data Acquisition System (WEBDAS)

    SBC: INVOCON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of extremely low-power wireless RF sensors has been demonstrated by Invocon, Inc. and others, but the application of the technology to broader applications, particularly ground test systems, has been limited. Ground test facilities must be capable of providing reliable, laboratory grade instrumentation capabilities as part of a reconfigurable architecture in sometimes extreme envir ...

  6. Hybrid Data System and Ion Detector for TOF Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Previous phase II work has resulted in a compact Time-of-Flight mass spectrometer developed for sensitive detection of hydrogen and oxygen leaks prior to and during the few seconds after engine start and before launch of the space shuttle. The main challenges for this application--sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range, response time, and ruggedness--have been met in the current prototype. The sensi ...

  8. Sn-SnSb Filled Carbon Fiber Anodes for High Energy Density Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Lithium Power Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An advanced material that exploits the excellent cycle life of a carbon fiber and the high gravimetric and volumetric capacity of the tin-based system is being proposed as a composite anode in lithium-ion batteries. Carbon fiber will be subjected to mild oxidation under oxygen so as to generate nano pores that will be subsequently filled by intermetallic materials SnSb using a sol-gel approach. Th ...

  10. Fuel Cell/Li-ion Battery Hybrid Power System for Space Suits

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    With the ongoing construction of the international space station (ISS), as well as the ever growing desire for manned missions to Mars, the duration and complexity of extravehicular activity (EVA) periods will increase. As a result, electrical power systems with higher capacities and broader capabilities necessary for extended EVA missions are urgently needed. Currently, electrical power is suppli ...
