  1. Distributed, Dynamic Space-Based Logistics Contingency Planning

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Space travel is fraught with ever changing emergencies and accidents that place human life and expensive one-of-a-kind autonomous systems at risk. Hypothetical collisions with space debris, human and computer errors are just a few examples of such risk. In this effort, we propose space based logistics technologies that can ameliorate and minimize the inherent risks due to space travel. We shall ad ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Biomolecular Construction of Optical Nanostructures

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Biology provides a vast number of examples of nanostructures produced at a level of precision that is superior to those that we can produce in the laboratory. The diversity of naturally occurring S-layers suggests that the nature of these self-assembled structures is genetically controlled and can therefore be manipulated through recombinant processes. In this Phase I research plan, Agave BioSyste ...

  5. Miniature Flow Cytometer and Cell Sorter for Use in Low Gravity

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional fluorescence-activated cell sorters (FACSs) are widely used to study eukaryotic cell populations. Although they provide impressively efficient sorting, they are costly, mechanically complex, and require large sample volumes and trained personnel for operation and maintenance. In addition, the footprint per unit separation is considerable and they typically require large input populati ...

  7. Fluorogenic Cell-Based Biosensors for Microbial Monitoring

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Great strides have been made in developing diagnostic systems for detecting and identifying specific pathogens and their toxins. However, these systems may be too specific and unable to detect newly emerging pathogens whose immunological or genetic profile is different than the normal complement of pathogens. The ideal system in an isolated environment such as a spacecraft would be one that provid ...

  9. 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 ...
