  1. Solid State Li-S Battery Based on Novel Polymer/Mineral Composite

    SBC: Chemtronergy, LLC            Topic: T15

    Lindash;S/Li-O2 batteries have great potential to meet requirements of energy storage systems for Electrified Aircraft propulsion applications. However, due to the need for oxygen gas storage and supply systems, the complicit balance of plant significantly decreases both gravimetric and volumetric energy density of Li-O2 battery systems. Li-S battery with a theoretical specific energy of 2600 Wh/k ...

  5. Regolith to Steel Powder, Oxygen & Water with Small Equipment

    SBC: Olsen, Rolf M            Topic: T402

    This proposal covers processing of raw Martian regolith to both an enriched iron ore and liberated water, and also iron ore reduction and oxygen production, metal purification and steel powder making. Our proposal uses heat re-cycling to improve the energy efficiency of both regolith-to-ore enrichment and iron ore reduction. This heat re-cycling creates a bonus, the liberation of water (formerly b ...

  6. Improved Forecasts of Solar Particle Events using Eruptive Event Generators based on Gibson-Low and Titov-Demoulin Magnetic Configurations

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T602

    Radiation hazards constitute a serious risk to human and robotic space operations beyond Low-Earth orbit. Primary contributors to space radiation include Solar Particle Events (SPEs) associated with Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs). Because the mechanisms that produce coronal mass ejections (CME) are exceedingly complex, no reliable deterministic methods for predicting eruptions are yet available, a ...

  7. Fusion of Modeling and Simulation Credibility in Multidisciplinary Design

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: T1102

    Entry vehicle design and aircraft design are just two examples of systems that are of interest to NASA, requiring interactions and exchange of information among multiple performance disciplines. Since any computational optimization process relies on simulation models for identifying the impact of design changes in meeting performance expectations and improving metrics of goodness, it is essential ...

  8. Risk Engineering, Sciences, Computation, and Informed Decisions

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T1301

    Wrong decisions during the missions can lead to an unsafe condition or immediate failure, while correct decisions can help continue the missions even from faulty conditions. In view of the lessons learned from mishaps, i.e., failed space missions, it is imminent that reliability analysis and risk assessment are kept in sync with space system design as it evolves from the concept through preliminar ...

  9. Novel Low Cost Booster Propulsion Development and Demonstration

    SBC: COMPOSITEX, INC.            Topic: T101

    The proposed contract effort is for the design, development and proof-of-concept demontration testing of a low cost, pressure-fed liquid rocket booster propulsion system concept. The contract focus will be on four key component technologies in the booster system; (1)composite propellant tanks, (2)pump-fed propellant heat exchanger, (3)self-cooled engine with altitude-compensating nozzle, and (4)a ...

  10. Compact, Regenerable, Low Power Adsorber for Spacesuit CO2, Humidity, and Trace Contaminant Control

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: T601

    Current approaches planned for space suit atmosphere revitalization (AR) are neither compatible with each other nor regenerable in space, and have a high life cycle operating cost associated with them. The proposed PCI innovation in collaboration with University of Hartford involves synthesizing improved sorbents on high surface area supports tailored for CO2, water and trace contaminant removal. ...
