  1. Utilization of Space Waste to Manufacture Sorbents for Trace-Contaminant Removal

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses the feasibility of producing regenerable sorbents for trace-contaminant control (mainly for on-board waste incineration systems) using a by-product (char) of an on-board waste pyrolysis process. The overall objective is to develop a gas clean-up system based on regenerable, waste-derived sorbents. The emphasis will be on the optimiz ...

  2. New Technique to Identify the Onset of Combustion Instability

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Combustion instability in air breathing propulsion engines can lead to catastrophic consequences. Unfortunately, as engines are operated at conditions to minimize pollutant emissions, the risk of crossing the boundary to unstable combustion increases. This Phase I project twill demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative sensing technique that will identify the onset of combustion instability in ...

  3. Low Cost Engine Test Stand for 500 lb Thrust Class Engines

    SBC: AJT and Associates, Inc            Topic: N/A

    AJT proposes to develop a low-cost, engine test-stand system for small (500 pound) thrust engines using gaseous, liquid or cryogenic propellants. This test stand would incorporate automated propellant transfer and automated propellant line purge systems. The engines would be configured to a standard test-stand interface, greatly reducing the time required to install and remove various engines. Thi ...

  4. Nano Ceramic Sterilization Filter

    SBC: ARGONIDE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Filters don't exist that are capable of removing virus and bacteria at high enough flow rates to be practical either for space systems or for domestic consumption. In Phase 1 we demonstrated feasibility that our nano ceramic fiber filter could produce sterile water at high flow rates. In Phase 2 we propose to develop performance data on such filters that would provide NASA with the capability for ...

  5. Upper and Lower Bounds in Finite Element Analysis of Aerospace Structures

    SBC: Astra Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is intended to develop a new analysis for stresses and displacements in aerospace structures based on the combined conventional Displacement (Stiffness) Method and on a new formulation of the Force Method developed by the principal investigator. Since some of the elements used currently in the Displacement Method violate equations of stress equilibrium, an additional analysis ...

  6. Label-Free, High-Throughput Proteomics Analyzer

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The Space Station Biological Research Program at NASA is developing advanced facilities, including cell culture systems to conduct microgravity research in cell biology onboard the Space Station. These systems will provide basic and essential infrastructure for space-based cell biology research. However, full utilization of the Space Station biological research facilities will require additional i ...

  7. Protein Microarrays for Bioreactor Bioproduct Monitoring

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Rotating wall vessels (RWV) are widely used for cell culture in simulated microgravity conditions. Sensor technologies capable of monitoring the expression of proteins on a large scale (proteomics) are needed to fully exploit the unique capabilities of RWVs. This Phase II effort is part of a program to develop an advanced analytical monitoring system for quantitative detection of bioreactor biopro ...

  8. Using Expert Knowledge to Augment Simulation-Based Operational Analysis of Space Transportation Conc

    SBC: Command and Control Technologies Corp.            Topic: N/A

    This research will investigate a new technique for analyzing operation characteristics of future space transportation systems using a variation of activity based cost modeling. The unique element of the new technique is its focus on simulation modeling to translate vehicle design parameters into a set of activities and a related process map in a domain (operations characteristics of future space v ...

  9. Capillarity Driven Flow Of Propellant Liquids In Colloidal Satellite Thrusters

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop colloidal thrusters capable of producing the thrust levels required to overcome drift and maintain individual microsatellites at their assigned positions. In the Phase I research on this project, we showed that the use of capillarity driven flow of non-volatile propellant liquid through a porous matrix or wick could produce extremely stable electrosprays ...

  10. High Efficiency Digital X-ray Detector

    SBC: Constellation Technology            Topic: N/A

    Several technologies are under development to replace conventional x-ray film with digital converters. More of the penetrating x-rays are absorbed into the detector because of its thicker stopping material. Current x-ray conversion materials are limited because of their relatively low atomic number and density. The high atomic number and high density of mercuric iodide can offer superior stopping ...
