  1. A Low-Cost In-flight Deicing System for Aircraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is a deicing system for aircraft leading edges using a high-efficiency, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer. The entire aircraft industry needs this technology to improve safety while minimizing the overall impact on aircraft weight and fuel consumption. We propose to use a low-cost, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer to break the ice bond in a manner similar ...

  2. Ge Semiconductor Devices for High-Performance Cryogenic Power Electronics

    SBC: GPD Optoelectronics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is germanium power semiconductor devices (diodes and transistors) developed specifically for power-management and actuator-control circuits operating at low and cryogenic temperatures. This is important for upcoming space missions to extremely cold environments, because it can greatly reduce the need for thermal control and required spacecraft power. These missions include ...

  4. High Heat Flux Evaporator for Two Phase Transport Loops

    SBC: MIKROS MANUFACTURING            Topic: N/A

    This project addresses the development of high performance evaporators for loop heat pipes (LHP) or capillary pumped loops. Thermal management of future high-power laser instrumentation will require power dissipation of 2-5 kW at heat fluxes beyond 100 W/cm2. Although localized heat fluxes as high as 100 W/cm2 have been demonstrated using bi-disperse wicks, the maximum average heat flux capability ...

  6. A Practical Fuel Tank Inerting System for Commercial Aircraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate objective of the proposed project is to develop a practical onboard, inert-gas generation system for fuel tank inerting on commercial aircraft. The system would operate autonomously and provide inert gas on demand to the fuel tank ullage. The proposed system would be based upon Total Air Liquefaction for Oxygen and Nitrogen (TALON) technology presently being developed for the U.S. Air ...

  7. Extremely Miniaturized, Turbomolecular Pump-Based Vacuum System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    NASA and commercial industry both have a pressing need for miniaturized high vacuum pumps. Recent advances in sensor technology at NASA laboratories have led to the development of very small mass spectrometer detectors as well as other instruments such as scanning electronic microscopes. However, the vacuum systems to support these sensors remain large, heavy, and power hungry. To meet this need, ...

  9. Zero-Venting Regenerable Lightweight Heat Absorber for EVA Suits

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Future manned space exploration missions will require life support systems that conserve resources while meeting extremely challenging requirements for light weight and small size. We propose to develop an innovative heat absorber for the thermal control system in EVA suits that is non-venting, regenerable, light weight, and compact. The system can provide 250 W of cooling for four hours with a ma ...
