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. Antistatic Thermal Control Coatings

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic discharge control is vital for the health of any spacecraft. Exposure to charged particles in a space enviroment can lead to large charge differences across the craft, that, if no mechanism for controlled discharge is present, can destroy mission critical equipment. The preferred way of ESD control is to use conducting thermal control coatings. These coatings combine the ability to r ...

  2. Self-Deploying Foam Antenna Structures

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Inflatable or self-deployable systems offer the only practical way to achieve space deployed antennas with low mass at large aperture. In this Phase I program, open-celled rigid polyurethane foams were developed for use in self-deploying antenna structures. Advantages of such a system relative to current systems include high volumetric efficiency of packing, inherent restoring force, low (or no) o ...

  3. Magnetohydrodynamic Stable Reference (MSTAR)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Platforms for scientific instruments increasingly require attitude knowledge and optical instrument pointing at sub-arcsecond accuracy. No low-cost commercial system exists to provide this level of accuracy for guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) and precision instrument pointing. ATA proposes to introduce a small inexpensive inertial attitude reference system based upon magnetohydrodynamic (M ...

    SBC: TIRF Technologies            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An innovative fluorescence system for sensing biomolecular interactions was developed in Phase I that is based on total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF). The main advantages of this system are integrated microfluidics and a design that allows rapid replacement of TIRF sensor chip. The feasibility of building a highly sensitive and versatile TIRF biosenso ...

  5. Chemical Stimulation of Oil Wells Producing from Carbonate Reservoirs

    SBC: Correlations Company            Topic: N/A

    65017 Oil well formation damage is detrimental to the oil production rate and ultimate recovery from carbonate reservoirs that contain 3.7 billion barrels of proved domestic reserve. This project will develop an innovative well stimulation technique, based on laboratory measurements of wettability alteration coupled with artificial intelligence, to design well treatments. Phase I laborator ...

  6. Development of Synthetic Muscle Systems for NASA Space Robotics/EVA Applications

    SBC: ENVIRONMENTAL ROBOTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the proposed Phase I research is to explore the feasibility of developing a family of novel synthetic muscle systems with robotic sensing and actuation capabilities, for a wide spectrum of NASA space robotic and EVA applications. In particular, configurations of interest may be in the form of multi-fingered biomimetic robotic hands to handle delicate and small space objects such as sma ...

  7. An Ultra-Compact Impulse Radiating Antenna for Space Applications

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Compact Ultra-Wideband (UWB) antennas with broad bandwidth could be of great use in a variety of space-based applications, including radar, communications, and surveillance. The challenge is to deploy a lightweight UWB antenna that is stowable in a smallvolume, that is automatically deployable, and that will be resistant to the harsh space environment. To overcome these challenges we propose an U ...

  8. An Ultra-Wideband Antenna Built Into a Parachute

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "On the modern electronic battlefield, a weapon that disables the enemy's electronics can be more useful than a weapon that executes a killing strike. This is possible because a radio frequency (RF) weapon that attacks electronics can be effective over amuch larger radius than a high-explosive (HE) weapon. For example, a single 155-mm artillery shell has a disabling blast radius limited to a few m ...

  9. Heteroepitaxial growth on nanostructured silicon surfaces

    SBC: Gratings, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This Phase II SBIR research effort addresses several approaches aimed at minimizing lattice constant and thermal expansion mismatches during heteroepitaxial growth of thick (~ several microns) films on Si substrates. A major focus of the research effortwould be one valuation of sub-50-nm linewidth deeply etched one and two dimensional sub-micrometer periodic structures as compliant buffer layers ...
