  1. Solid State Li-S Battery Based on Novel Polymer/Mineral Composite

    SBC: Chemtronergy, LLC            Topic: T15

    Lindash;S/Li-O2 batteries have great potential to meet energy storage requirements for Electrified Aircraft propulsion applications. However, due to the need for oxygen storage and supply systems, the complicit balance of plant significantly decreases both the gravimetric and volumetric energy density of Li-O2 battery systems. For the Li-S battery, however, the main obstacle ndash; ldquo;rapid cap ...

  2. Stochastic Cable Harness Coupling to Electric Fields in Spacecraft Cavities

    SBC: Sonelite, Inc.            Topic: T5

    The proposed innovation is a new software tool that overcomes the present obstacles to simulation-based tailoring of EMC environment specifications for all space flight electronics.nbsp;NASArsquo;s baseline EMC qualification process is for all electronics systems, subsystems and components to be test-qualified to a single, universal MIL-STD-461 specification. However, this is not necessarily a saf ...

  4. Broadband Multispectral Mid-Infrared Laser

    SBC: Mirios, Inc.            Topic: T8

    We propose to construct a multispectral MWIR light source consisting of a single silicon chip which will generate and combine light from a wide MWIR spectral range. Compared to existing conventional MWIR emitters, we will double the available wavelength emission range and combine light on-chip, removing the need for free-space optics.

  5. High Resolution On-Chip Photonic MKID Spectrometer


    High resolution spectrographs with spectral resolution R = lambda;/∆lambda; gt; 5,000 are one of the most important tools for nearly every discipline in astronomy, but the design of high resolution spectrographs have not experienced significant changes in last several decades. A conventional high resolution spectrograph usually contains a collimator, echelle grating, cross disperser, and finally ...

  6. A Modular In-Situ Curing Apparatus for Thermoset Resin Mixtures Applied as Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Future human extraterrestrial missions will require export and landing of countless payloads on the lunar and Martian surfaces. Such a quantity and rate of payload delivery will require cost-effective and rapid manufacturing of many large Thermal Protection Systems (TPS). Intelligent Optical Systems proposes to develop a modular system for in-situ bonding and curing of thermoset resin to the space ...

  7. Bimodal Ion-Chemical Thruster System

    SBC: Espace Inc            Topic: T2

    A top candidate ldquo;greenrdquo; monopropellant proposed as a safe replacement for hydrazine in spacecraft systems is also shown in tests to be a high performance propellant for ion electrospray thrusters. The proposed effort is to take full advantage of these remarkable characteristics to develop an efficient bimodal ion-chemical thruster system using a common propellant supply tank. This propos ...

  9. REALISE- Remote Experimentation and Analysis Laboratory In SpacE


    We are proposing the fully autonomous science facility REALISE for suspended biological cultures that can both incubate organisms over long periods of time (30 days to 9 months) but also perform in-situ analysis of samples using bright-field and three-color fluorescence microscopy. REALISE will be based heavily on functionality, components, and experience from past Shuttle, ISS, and Orion heritage ...
