The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Efficient cFS-based On-board Lamberts Solution for DSMs

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: T11

    Distributed Spacecraft Missions (DSM) architectures provide unique scientific and programmatic benefits including multipoint in-situ measurements, multi-angle viewpoints, and improved understanding of the connections between separately measured phenomena and their time variations. However, these missions impose significant operational demands on ground tracking resources and mission operators alik ...

  2. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  3. Electrical Power from Thermal Energy Scavenging in High Temperature Environments

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T3

    Physical Sciences Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a novel approach to scavenging heat from high intensity thermal environments encountered during space missions and converting this thermal power to electrical power at high efficiency.  Examples include extremely hot heat shields during vehicle entry into planetary atmospheres (Mars/Venus probes) and during high speed ascent thro ...

  4. An Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  5. User Cognitive Modeling to Enhance Task Execution

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: H6

    Procedures are commonly used by organizations to specify, document, and disseminate prescribed methods for performing tasks efficiently and effectively. However, even well-trained personnel can make errors when carrying out procedures. The risk of these errors increases when task loads are too low or too high, when multi-tasking or switching between tasks, when interrupted, when complex team coord ...

  6. Extended Length Marsupial Rover Sensing Tether

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: S4

    Luna proposes to continue the development of extended length capabilities for its marsupial rover sensing tether (MaRS Tether).  Luna’s revolutionary technology measures the distributed tension and curvature of a tether that connects a rover to its base station and can identify pinch points, snags, or high tension. Previous SBIR programs with NASA JPL have demonstrated the capabilities ...

  7. High Power (50W) WDM Space Lasercom 1.5um Fiber Laser Transmitter

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: H9

    Fibertek proposes to develop and demonstrate a spaceflight prototype of a wideband, high power 50W, 1.5-um fiber laser transmitter, supporting high data rate wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) operation for space optical communication links. The fiber laser transmitter will support up to 8x WDM channels with high power conversion efficiency. The proposed 10x scaling of the average and peak powe ...

  8. High Speed Frequency Locking Module for Lidar Based Remote Sensing Systems

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: S1

    A basic requirement for all Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) systems is wavelength switching of the probe laser on and off of an absorption line of the species of interest. For most trace gas species switching accuracy on the order of 10 MHz is also required. Further complications for many DIAL systems are that the platform moves (airborne or space craft) and that the lasers are often high pea ...

  9. Non-mechanical High-Resolution Low-SWaP Lidar

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: S4

    This Phase II effort will be a proof-of-concept demonstration of a non-mechanical (no moving parts) 3D lidar system that provides in real time high-resolution terrain point cloud information.    The objective is to build a compact sensor that meets the low size, weight and power (SWaP) requirements of planetary landers being developed for future NASA planet, moon and asteroid explor ...

  10. High Speed Beam Steering Components for Lidar

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: S1

     Boulder Nonlinear Systems (BNS) proposes to pursue development of low size, weight, and power (SWaP) beam scanner technology for entry, descent and landing (EDL) or wind sensing Lidar NASA applications that can redirect the beam of light at 1 kHz (threshold) to 10 kHz (goal) framerates. The prototype scanner will steer to 8 spots over at least a 60o field of regard. BNS will employ their cur ...
