The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Integrated Silicon Carbide Electronics for Venus Surface Actuation

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S4

    NASA has demonstrated a resolve for a flagship mission in the coming years to revisit Venus and land instruments on the surface. Venus has a corrosive, high-pressure (~100 bar), high-temperature (470°C) environment. A motor drive is the major theme that runs through the most critical needs for optimum geological and atmospheric exploration on Venus.An electronically-controlled motor, operating ...

  2. A 128-Channel Compact VUV Spectrometer for Wide-Temperature Entry Descent & Landing Sensing Applications

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: Z7

    NASA manned and robotic missions to the surface of planetary or airless bodies require Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL). For many of these missions, EDL represents one of the riskiest phases of the mission. Despite the criticality of the EDL phase, NASA has historically gathered limited engineering data from such missions, and use of the data for real-time Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN& ...

  3. Covalent organic frameworks based nanoporous structures for explosive remediation

    SBC: CatalyzeH2O, LLC            Topic: A18011

    Chemical components of explosives compounds have contaminated environments and water to extreme levels.Chemicals such as 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) and 1,3,5-Trinitro-1,3,5-triazinane (RDX) pose a risk to the health of humans, livestock, wildlife and ecosystems. Both TNT and RDX have been shown to cause adverse health effects in mammals such as: anemia, nausea, convulsions, and ultimately death. ...

  4. Highly Scalable SiC UV Imager for Earth & Planetary Science

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S104

    Commercial silicon carbide (SiC)-based photonic sensors typically use p-i-n photodiode and reversed-biased Avalanche Photodiode (APD) detectors. These state-of-the-art SiC photodiodes use the wafer substrate as one node of the device, thereby making monolithic integration of the device with control or analysis circuitry difficult, if not impossible. In Phase I, Ozark IC demonstrated that its new ...

  5. A Wide-Temperature Range Wire-Line Communication Link Using the NASA Glenn SiC JFET Technology

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S404

    NASA has demonstrated a resolve for a flagship mission in the coming years to revisit Venus and land instruments on the surface. Venus has a corrosive, high pressure (~100 bar), high-temperature (up to 500 C) environment presenting extreme design challenges for lander electronics. The ability to establish simple wire-line communications between circuits operating in extremely disparate temperatur ...

  6. A SiC-based Microcontroller for High-Temperature In-Situ Instruments and Systems

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S106

    NASA has a need for electronics that can support proposed flagship missions such as a Venus surface lander. Devices that can operate at temperatures of up to 500?C are desired. Ozark IC and its partner, the University of Arkansas, have created the world's largest known library of CMOS silicon-carbide (SiC) analog and mixed-signal circuits, intellectual property (IP) and packages that can operate ...

  7. Highly Scalable SiC UV Imager for Earth & Planetary Science

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S104

    Commercial silicon carbide (SiC)-based photonic sensors typically use p–i–n photodiode and reversed-biased Avalanche Photodiode (APD) detectors. These state-of-the-art SiC photodioides use the wafer substrate as one node of the device, thereby making monolithic integration of the device with control or analysis circuitry difficult, if not impossible. Ozark IC's new (patent pending) phot ...

  8. Extreme Temperature Radiation Tolerant Instrumentation for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion Engines

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: H202

    The objective of this proposal is to develop and commercialize a high reliability, high temperature smart neutron flux sensor for NASA Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems. Arkansas Power Electronics International (APEI) and International Femtoscience (FemtoSci) technology offers the following: (1) 600+ degC ambient operation of a full wireless smart sensor system (2) Extreme-environment elec ...

  9. Compact, High-Power Density, High-Voltage Silicon Carbide (SiC) Based Solid-State Circuit Protection Device (SSCPD) Incorporating Advanced Power Pack

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: A123118

    This SBIR Phase I project seeks to develop an advanced, flexible, robust, high-power density, high-voltage (600 V), solid-state circuit protection device (SSCPD) through the incorporation of silicon carbide (SiC) device technology, the implementation of advanced power packaging, and novel fault detection and protection schemes. The proposed SiC-based SSCPD will address the present and future needs ...

  10. Extreme Environment SiC Wireless Sensor Suite for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion Engines

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: X203

    There are a number of critical telemetry measurements to be monitored under continuous field operation, including temperature data across the reactor chamber and the nozzle, pressure data, neutron flux density and flow rate of the propellant. Real-time monitoring of this data in nuclear thermal engines would greatly improve operational safety and performance, reduce operational costs, and signific ...
