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. Fate and Fortune: A Story-Based Algebra Simulator of High Seas Trade

    SBC: MidSchool Math, LLC            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test Fate and Fortune, an online class-wide intervention where grade 8 students learn algebra within a story-based game. Research demonstrates that students who do not succeed in algebra are more likely to eventually drop out of high school. When students begin Algebra I, a lack of conceptually meaning and understanding can be further reinforced by ...

  2. Multi-Physics NTR Safety Analyses

    SBC: Little Prairie Services            Topic: Z10

    Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) offers high promise to reduce launch mass, decrease mission costs and increase mission effectiveness, particularly for crewed missions to the planets. However, NTP has been plagued with high uncertainties in cost, schedule and safety, particularly launch safety. To reduce programmatic uncertainty, an unambiguous approach to documenting NTP safety prior to, during a ...

  3. 3D Printed Silicon Carbide Scalable to Meter-Class Segments for Far-Infrared Surveyor

    SBC: Goodman Technologies LLC            Topic: S2

    Using technology spun out from Sandia National Laboratories, Goodman Technologies LLC with our Small Business and Minority Serving Institution partner (Team GT) has demonstrated the feasibility of 3D printed and additively manufactured SiC/SiC composite and Reaction Bonded SiC for low areal cost, ultra-lightweight mirrors and structures. Our technology development roadmap shows production of ...

  4. Compact CO2 Instrumentation for Small Aerial Platforms

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S1

    Over the past decade, the importance of understanding the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide and othergreenhouse gases has been recognized. A variety of research studies funded by NASA, DOE and NOAA tomeasure the fluxes of CO2 from average conditions have been performed. In particular, flux measurements of CO2 in the boundary layer are critical toward understanding the carbon budget for this ...

  5. Wideband Autonomous Cognitive Radios for Networked Satellites Communications


    Wideband Autonomous Cognitive Radios (WACRs) are advanced radios that have the ability to sense state of the RF spectrum and the network and self-optimize its operating mode in response to this sensed state. During the just finished Phase I STTR project, Bluecom Systems was able to develop a comprehensive design for realizing such a WACR and demonstrate the proof-of-concept operation in a hardware ...

  6. Intelligent Information Processing for Enhanced Safety in the NAS

    SBC: Metis Technology Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A303

    Our Phase I work focused on how improved information flow between actors in a flight deck environment can improve safety performance. An operational prototype was developed demonstrating how the Intelligent Information Processing System (IIPS) will operate in actual accidents/incidents. For Phase II, we propose the following operating environment extensions from the flight deck environment: NextG ...

  7. Process and Tool Innovation for CAD Integration with OLTARIS

    SBC: XL SCIENTIFIC, LLC            Topic: H1101

    NASA uses computer aided design (CAD) capabilities to produce space vehicle designs. One aspect of the vehicle design is utilizing enough shielding to minimize dose on personnel. NASA CAD models inherit errors and issues during their inception that prevent them from being used with NASA?s radiation transport code, High Z and Energy Transport (HZETRN). XL Scientific developed a ray tracing tool to ...

  8. Accident Tolerant Reactor Shutdown for NTP Systems

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: H202

    In brief, USNC's accident submersion safe drums are control drums where a small amount of fuel is added opposite to the neutron absorber and the drums impinge on the active core to substantially increase the shutdown criticality margin of the control drums. Phase 1 results indicate that the shutdown criticality margin is more than sufficient to maintain sub-criticality in the worst-case water sub ...

  9. Superconducting Magnesium Diboride Thin Films for Ground Receiver Detectors

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: H901

    Superconducting films of magnesium diboride (MgB2) are very attractive for a range of detector and telecommunications applications owing to the high critical temperature of these films, ~40 K, which greatly simplifies the cooling requirements. We propose to develop a reactive evaporation technique for the deposition of MgB2 thick films on wafers up to at least 4" diameter, and an etch back and pas ...

  10. Ultra-Stable Zero-CTE HoneySiC and H2CMN Mirror Support Structures

    SBC: FANTOM MATERIALS INC.            Topic: S203

    NASA MSFC, GSFC and JPL are interested in Ultra-Stable Mirror Support Structures for Exoplanet Missions. Telescopes with Apertures of 4-meters or larger and using an internal coronagraph require a telescope wavefront stability that is on the order of 10 pico-meters RMS per 10 minutes. Interest is also for IR/FIR missions requiring 8-meter or larger diameter mirrors with cryogenic deformations
