  1. Redox Tolerant Cathode for Solid Oxide Electrolysis Stacks

    SBC: Oxeon Energy, LLC            Topic: H1

    OxEon Energy proposes a combination of materials and engineering solutions to demonstrate the reduction-oxidation (redox) stability of a solid oxide electrolysis cathode during start up and operation. The redox tolerant cathode material will reduce system complexity, tolerate flow upset conditions, and provide flexibility in space based systems without a man-in-the-loop.Solid oxide electrolysis st ...

  2. Ultra-Compact, Field-Deployable, Quantum-Compatible Receiver for Free-Space Optical Communication

    SBC: Quantum Opus, LLC            Topic: H9

    Quantum Opus is excited to propose compactifying, enclosing, and automating ALL of the required vacuum, cryogenics, and electrical systems of a superconducting nanowire single-photon detection system into a 14-inch tall by 17-inch wide by 18-inch deep package and re-engineering the optical collection mechanisms to be compatible with existing NASA telescope infrastructure. The end product will be a ...

  4. Model-Based Design Assessment and FM Visualization Technologies in TEAMS

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    NASA's FM community has identified one of the major problems with FM on the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) missions being that the complexity of FM has often been discovered late in the system development during testing, or in other cases in flight itself requiring unplanned, major spikes in resources to ensure that it will work properly and not create failures in the system that it is tryi ...

  5. In-Situ Electrospray Capture of Organic Bearing Particulates from Comets and Celestial Bodies

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: S1

    NASA has need for technologies that can enable sampling from asteroids and from depth in a comet nucleus, improved in-situ analysis of comets. It has been identified that there is also a requirement for improved dust environment measurements & particle analysis, small body resource identification, and/or quantification of potential small body resources (e.g., oxygen, water and other volatiles, ...

  6. In-Situ Electrospray Capture of Organic Bearing Particulates from Alien Water Fountains

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: S4

    NASA has need for technologies that can enable sampling from water jets, such as those observed emanating from the moon Enceladus and from the moon Europa. We propose to leverage past observations of the ability of electrospray ionization to capture and concentrate polar or polarizable trace species without damage, and combine that knowledge with recent discoveries in developing a hypervelocity ic ...

  7. Hyperspectral Microwave Photonic Radiometer

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: S1

    Passive Microwave Remote Sensing is currently utilized by NASA, NOAA, and others to conduct Earth Science missions, including weather forecasting, early warning systems, and climate studies. These sensors could also be used in upcoming missions such as Saturn’s moon to study atmospheric makeup.  On earth, humidity and temperature sounding is conducted near several absorption lines to de ...
