  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 requirements of energy storage systems for Electrified Aircraft propulsion applications. However, due to the need for oxygen gas storage and supply systems, the complicit balance of plant significantly decreases both gravimetric and volumetric energy density of Li-O2 battery systems. Li-S battery with a theoretical specific energy of 2600 Wh/k ...

  2. Efficient High-Fidelity Modeling of High Strain Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: ANALYSWIFT, LLC            Topic: T12

    AnalySwift will collaborate with NASA researchers and Prof. Wenbin Yu of Purdue University to establish a new framework for efficient high-fidelity modeling for high strain thin-ply composites (HS-TPCs). Propose innovations include using mechanics of structure genome (MSG) for multiscale constitutive modeling of HS-TPCs, a thermodynamically consistent constitutive model for HS-TPCs exhibiting ther ...

  3. Reliable Non-Swaged Cathode Heater Designs

    SBC: Orbion Space Technology, Inc.            Topic: Z10

    To ensure high reliability, traditional cathode heaters undergo complex material inspections, challenging manufacturing ops, time-consuming thermal/cycle testing, onerous electrical testing, and difficult-to-assess X-ray inspections, and even after executing all of the aforementioned qualified/heritage procedures a high percentage of as-built heaters fail one of the many acceptance tests, which is ...

  4. Modular Adaptable RocketEngine for Vehicle Launch(MAREVL)

    SBC: BLUSHIFT AEROSPACE, INC.            Topic: Z9

    bluShift Aerospace is developing fully modular hybrid rocket motors, referred to as MAREVLs (Modular Adaptable Rocket Engine for Vehicle Launch). Having a modular hybrid rocket motor will allow bluShift and other organizations to rapidly develop various launch vehicles for a micro satellite (CubeSat) launch fleet. There are two innovative fundamental ideas behind bluShiftrsquo;s MAREVL: Modularity ...

  5. Optimization of the Manufacturing Parameters for the Assembly of Protein-Based Retinal Implants in Microgravity

    SBC: LAMBDAVISION, INC.            Topic: H8

    LambdaVision developed a protein-based retinal implant to restore vision to the millions of people who are blinded by retinal degenerative diseases, including retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration. Preclinical evaluation of the technology, including ex vivo extracellular recording experiments and in vivo surgical development, demonstrated that we are able to reproducibly stimul ...

  6. Information Hedging from Sensing to Cognition to ensure Coherent Decision Making

    SBC: nodein            Topic: A2

    Maintaining consistent information flow between abstraction layers, from sensing to cognition, to ensure consistent decision-making is difficult. We are proposing an entirely new data structure, based on hypergraphs, to solve this problem. These hypergraph data structures will be developed in a domain specific language known as NodeLab and serve as a unified knowledge representation that can accep ...

  7. Model Based Data Integration and Fault Management (FM) Architecture Design Trade Studies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    NASA uses a variety of tools to conduct its FM activities. However, these tools are varied and disjoint, and require manual intervention to transfer data from the output of one tool to the input of another. This process is tedious, error-prone and scales poorly for large, complex systems. In addition, these tools are often ldquo;silorsquo;edrdquo; to the singular functionality for which they were ...

  8. Xen Project Hypervisor for the High Performance Space Computing Platform

    SBC: DORNERWORKS, LTD.            Topic: Z6

    DornerWorks is seeking to enhance the capabilities and ecosystem of the open source Xen Project hypervisor, targeting full integration with the High Performance Space Computing (HPSC) platformrsquo;s High Performance Processing Subsystem (HPPS) through this project. There will be several tangible benefits stemming from this Phase I project.nbsp;This project will show the Xen Project hypervisor to ...

  9. All Solid State Li-S Batteries

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: Z1

    Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes a novel high energy all solid-state Li-S battery (ASSLSB). If successful, the proposed high energy battery systems will enable high power/energy storage for future science and exploration missions and offer benefits to other national needs.

    SBIR Phase I 2019 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Space Exploration Extreme Environment Communication Transceiver

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: S4

    The purpose of this project is to develop and demonstrate an S-band communication radio capable of operation at extreme high temperatures and pressures in hostile and corrosive environments.nbsp; This directly addresses NASArsquo;s interest in expanding the ability to explore the deep atmospheres and surfaces of the Moon, planets, asteroids, and comets through the use of long-lived (days or weeks) ...
