  1. Carbon-Supported Amine Sorbent Monoliths for Carbon Dioxide Removal

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: B301

    The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space will require the development of regenerable life support systems. On-board carbon dioxide (CO2) removal units play a key role in such systems ensuring high quality cabin air for crew members. Similar but more compact units are needed for extravehicular activities (space suit). The overall objective is to develop ...

  2. A Hybrid Pyrolysis/Incineration System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery

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

    The objective of the Phase I SBIR program was to demonstrate the feasibility of integrating pyrolysis and incineration steps into a system for processing of spacecraft solid wastes. The Phase I study involved a combination of bench scale experiments and data analysis. This work was accomplished in four tasks: 1) design and construct bench scale unit; 2) laboratory studies on solid waste processing ...

  3. Panoramic Stereoscopic Video System for Remote-Controlled Robotic Space Operations

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: F502

    This Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of providing panoramic stereoscopic images for remote-controlled robotic space operations using three fixed-position cameras. Remote-controlled robot operations are an important element in orbital and planetary space missions. Advanced display systems can greatly enhance the effectiveness of these operations. In the system proposed here, hum ...

  5. Cytometer on a Chip

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: B203

    The Cytometer on a Chip will provide a powerful alternative to conventional flow cytometry. This system spatially sorts cells on a microarray chip based on the presence of specific cell surface markers. Detection is accomplished with grating-coupled surface plasmon resonance imaging (GCSPRI). This is a label-free detection technology that eliminates the need to fluorescently label the cells, as ...

  6. Miniature Flat Plasma Spectrometer

    SBC: NanoSciences Corporation/NanoSystems Inc            Topic: S101

    This phase I SBIR project will develop a micromachined charged particle energy collimator plate to be used as a principle component in a micromachined plasma spectrometer. The construction of a micromachined device will enable plasma spectrometers to be easily accommodated into NASA?s strategy for using many small nanosatellite spacecraft to perform scientific measurements. A novel high aspect r ...

  8. Lab-on-a-chip Astrobiology Analyzer

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: S405

    The overall goal of this program (through Phase III) is to develop an astrobiology analyzer to measure chemical signatures of life in extraterrestrial settings. The analyzer will employ a lab-on-a-chip to extract biochemical signatures from soil or water samples and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy to detect and identify the signatures. The goal of the Phase I program is to demonstrate feasib ...

  9. Lightweight Unitized Regenerative Fuel Cell

    SBC: Proton Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: E206

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II program addresses the development of a Proton Exchange Membrane Unitized Regenerative Fuel Cell (PEM URFC) stack and system for energy storage. The concepts of reduced cell stack weight, developed in Phase I, will be applied to the concept of static water feed/removal being developed by Proton Energy Systems in another program. The Phase II will res ...

  10. In-Flight Imaging Systems for Hypervelocity and Re-Entry Vehicles

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: A206

    It is proposed to create a rugged, reliable, compact, standardized imaging system for hypervelocity and re-entry vehicles using sapphire windows, small imagers, and independent telemetry. Such a system is a novel creation that can tolerate the severe aerothermal environment associated with hypervelocity flight. The proposed system answers a critical need for enhanced situation awareness, perform ...
