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. SBIR Phase I: Bridging the Education Gap Between Block-Based Programs and Cryptic C++ Code with an Internet of Things Based Interactive Code Development and Debug Platform

    SBC: Firia, Inc            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a low cost educational platform which provides students a gateway to understanding and writing software code in modern real-world programming languages. The research addresses a pressing need in the K-12 setting to engage both teachers and students in Coding as a Literacy. Current approaches to teaching computer science and programming principles in K-12 ofte ...

  2. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 08a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. Therefore, a number of new large neutron facilities have recently being constructed, upgraded or planned around the world. Examples include the new, 1.4 billion-dollars Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at DoE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and upgrades of ORNL’s High-Flux Isotope React ...

  3. Simulations of Explosive Electron Emission in Cathodic Arcs

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 20a

    Explosive Electron Emission (EEE) is typical to cathodic arcs. The physics of multi-phase phenomena associated with self-sustained formation of explosive emission centers (ectons) is not fully understood. This SBIR project will conduct experimental, theoretical, and computational studies of EEE-induced phase transitions at electrode surfaces and formation of plasma jets in cathodic sparks and arcs ...

  4. Additive Manufacture of Tungsten Armored Plasma Facing Components

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: 20a

    Tungsten and its alloys are candidates for plasma facing component (PFC) armor due to their low sputtering rate, high melting point, high thermal conductivity, high strength at elevated temperatures, and low tritium inventory. Although copper alloys have been selected for the heat sinks for ITER, a working fusion reactor will require the use of higher strength, low activation materials. For exampl ...

  5. Non-Intrusive Computational Method and Uncertainty Quantification Tool for Isolator Operability Calculations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A1.10

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations are extensively used by NASA for hypersonic aerothermodynamics calculations. The physical models used in CFD codes and initial/boundary conditions for numerical simulations carry significant uncertainties. There are also inherent errors in experiments designed for model validation, and numerical discretization. Despite this knowledge, only a limited n ...

  6. Joining of Tungsten Cermet Nuclear Fuel

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: H2.02

    Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) has been identified as a critical technology needed for human missions to Mars and beyond due to its increased specific impulse (Isp) as compared to traditional chemical propulsion systems. Recently, the Game Changing Development (GCD) Program, which is a partnership between NASA, DOE, and industry, was initiated to evaluate the feasibility of a low enriched urani ...

  7. Evaluation of Multifunctional Radiation Shielding Material Against Long Duration Space Environment- Utilization of MISSE-FF

    SBC: Geoplasma, LLC            Topic: H8.01

    Radiation shielding is needed to protect personnel and equipment for extended stays beyond low earth orbit. Ideally, the shielding material would be of dual use, i.e., shielding and structural. Recently, a tailorable multifunctional composite with increased structural strength combined with efficient shielding against GCR and secondary neutrons was developed by this team. For these multifunctio ...

  8. Additively Manufactured, Thermally Stable Telescope Mirror Substrates

    SBC: Arctic Slope Technical Services            Topic: S2.03

    This proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of using selective laser melting (SLM) to develop the material composition and the additive manufacturing fabrication process of silicon carbide (SiC) reinforced AlSi10Mg matrix composite (SiC-AMC). ASTS will also demonstrate feasibility that we can customize the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) in the substrate material based upon increasing ...

  9. Green Monopropellant Propulsion for Small Spacecrafts

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: S3.02

    One of the biggest obstacles preventing the widespread implementation of small satellites is the process of actually getting them into space. Current methods include hitching rides as secondary payloads. Although this initiative has provided significant new launch capacity for CubeSat-class spacecraft, it is not without issues, most specifically limited orbits and orbital lifetime. Many missions n ...

  10. Hybrid Propulsion Technology for Robotic Science Missions

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: S3.02

    C3 Propulsion's Hybrid Propulsion Technology will be applied to a NASA selected Sample Return Mission. Phase I will demonstrate Proof-of-Principle and Phase II will design, fabricate, and demonstrate a flight-like propulsion system for that application. HPT is non-toxic, safe, and has energy management (throttleable or pulse width modulated) capabilities. It is expected to be able to operate in th ...
