  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Electrochromic Thermal Stabilization of Large Deployable Structures

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Solar sails use a thin reflecting membrane to deflect sunlight, converting the momentum of solar photons striking the sail to a means of spacecraft propulsion. The trajectory of the sail-powered spacecraft may be controlled by through a mechanical arrangement or through the use of an electrochromic material that changes reflectivity or transmittance in response to the application of an electric po ...

  8. Electrochromic Variable Emissivity Devices for Thermal Control

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Small light-weight satellites and space vehicles under development for future NASA missions have reduced thermal mass and are rapidly affected by changes in orbital conditions, resulting in large temperature variations. Restrictions on payload weight and volume limit the usefulness of many thermal control system technologies. To address this problem, Eclipse Energy Systems, Inc. (EES) has suggeste ...

  9. Ordered Ultrathin Films based on Conducting Polymers for Gas Sensors

    SBC: Fractal Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Gas sensors based on metal oxides are known to be widely used for the detection of gases, aromatic hydrocarbon, etc., but such sensors lack selectivity, and operation at high temperatures is required. We have proved feasibility of our approach in Phase I, which focused on the use of highly organized ultrathin films of conducting polymers synthesized/processed via the layer-by-layer self-assembly t ...

  10. Ultrahigh Energy Propulsion By Pulsed Magnetic Field Compression of Fissile Plas

    SBC: New Era Technology            Topic: N/A

    A new fission powered space power and propulsion system based on using a non-moving fissile gas is proposed. The main innovation in the proposed fission based propulsion system is the use of well-established fusion plasma confinement and compression methods to achieve a supercritical condition in a highly subcritical fissile gas. In particular, electromagnetic induced shock wave compaction and gas ...
