  1. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  2. Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED)

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 842W

    There are currently no inexpensive, expendable air-deployed monitoring systems (Dropsondes) that measure atmospheric data and oceanographic as a function of depth. These are important data in predicting the intensity and path of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to provide NOAA with a solution to this challenge with the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED) p ...

  3. A uMECS miniature blower for respiratory protection systems, Phase II

    SBC: Vibrant Composites Inc.            Topic: CBD14103

    Air management solutions capable of reducing heat and moisture burden are not suitable for integration in wearable respiratory protection systems due to excessive weight, volume, and power requirements of existing technologies. Vibrant Composites proposes applying its unique uMECS manufacturing technology towards development of an ultra-lightweight and power efficient miniature blower. Fundamental ...

  4. Generalized gUidance, Navigation & Control Architecture for Reusable Development (GUARD): Performance Evaluation in Relevant Operating Environments

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: H601

    In Phase I of this project, SSCI carried out initial development of the Generalized Guidance, Navigation & Control Architecture for Reusable Development (GUARD). The resulting framework is applicable across different Autonomous Rendezvous and Docking (AR&D) domains, and enables further development and testing of reusable GN&C software for such applications. GUARD is based on the key functional req ...

  5. Drag Identification & Reduction Technology (DIRECT) for Elastically Shaped Air Vehicles

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A304

    The Variable Camber Continuous Trailing Edge Flap (VCCTEF) concept offers potential improvements in the aerodynamic efficiency of aircraft through real time wing shaping. NASA and Boeing have been studying the suitability of this concept to address the drag reduction problem in aircraft with reduced-stiffness wings. However, reduced stiffness may lead to wing flutter. In addition, displacements of ...

  6. In-Situ EBCs for High Performance Composite Propulsion Components

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T1202

    Silicon Carbide based ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) offer the potential to fundamentally change the design and manufacture of aeronautical and space propulsion systems to significantly increase performance and fuel efficiency over current metal-based designs. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and our team members at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) are developing, designing and fabr ...

  7. LunarCube for Deep Space Missions

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: Z2001

    Busek, in partnership with Morehead State University (MSU), proposes to develop a versatile 6U CubeSat capable of reaching a lunar orbit from GEO. The primary objective of the Phase II effort is to demonstrate a complete, mini ion propulsion system that provides ~3000sec Isp heretofore unavailable to CubeSats, with a solid-storable iodine propellant. This type of propulsion technology would be a ...

  8. Spacecraft Thermal Control System Not Requiring Power

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: S307

    NASA missions, from earth orbit CubeSats to deep space, require thermal management. For this a switchable emissivity surface is desired, but the only established solution, mechanical louvers, is heavy and clumsy. In Phase I, Triton Systems working with materials scientists at a leading research university demonstrated an innovative film which switches from low to high emissivity above a set thresh ...

  9. rHEALTH X with Non-Invasive Capabilities for Science and Crew Health

    SBC: CHAN RESEARCH, LLC            Topic: H1002

    There is an extraordinary need for a universal biomedical analyzer that has broadly flexible capabilities for cell studies, small animal experiments, and crew member health. The goal of our rHEALTH X device is to create a single palm-sized device with tripartite capabilities: non-invasive measurements, cell cytometry analysis, and multiplexed nanostrip tests. Currently, there is no single devic ...

  10. Automated Manufacture of Damage Detecting, Self-Healing Composite Cryogenic Pressure Vessels

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: T1002

    After successfully demonstrating the basic functionality of a damage-detecting, self-healing 'smart' material system in Phase I, Aurora and UMass Lowell aim to advance the material technology to a TRL 5 in Phase II. The team will use their 'smart' material system to design and manufacture various scaled-up core-stiffened composite specimens in application-appropriate geometries, and subsequently t ...
