  2. Radiation Hard Monolithic SDRAM to Support DDR2 and DDR3 Architectures

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: T1501

    There is no rad hard SDRAM currently available to support DDR2 and DDR3 applications. Space Micro proposes to build a radiation hardened by design (RHBD) SDRAM memory, using a modified version of our HF-Core Memory Controller to solve all the single event effects issues (SEU, SEFI and multiple bit errors). The RHBD SDRAM will be manufactured on known radiation characterized eDRAM (embedded DRAM) ...

  3. Novel Low Cost Booster Propulsion Development and Demonstration

    SBC: COMPOSITEX, INC.            Topic: T101

    The proposed contract effort is for the design, development and proof-of-concept demontration testing of a low cost, pressure-fed liquid rocket booster propulsion system concept. The contract focus will be on four key component technologies in the booster system; (1)composite propellant tanks, (2)pump-fed propellant heat exchanger, (3)self-cooled engine with altitude-compensating nozzle, and (4)a ...

  4. Compact Isotope Analysis System for In-Situ Biosignature Investigation

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T801

    We propose to develop a sensor for in-situ stable isotope analysis from a lander/rover on future planetary missions. The system will enable the collection of valuable information applicable to biosignature investigations, i.e., the search for evidence of life within the solar system. Current limitations to in-situ isotope measurements will be overcome by utilizing a hollow fiber optic based IR s ...

  5. Low Mass/Power Sensor Suite for Spacesuits

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: T601

    To provide additional telemetry and data for long-term mission, the composition of internal atmosphere of spacesuits must be determined. Specifically, the unambiguous detection and quantification of carbon dioxide is crucial for mission completion. Detection of other gasses (ammonia, oxygen) is also necessary for a complete sensor suite. Seacoast Science and Case Western Reserve University pro ...

  8. 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 ...

    STTR Phase I 2019 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. 3D Geolocation of Current Pulses in Clouds Using a 6-Axis EB Vector Sensor

    SBC: QUASAR FEDERAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T802

    Lightning discharges within or near critical facilities can disrupt activities or result in damage. Although existing lightning locating systems can geolocate breakdown processes with accuracies of 10s of meters at heights above 1.5-2 km, they do not accurately report ground strike locations or provide estimates of current and charge transfer. In addition, conventional VLF/LF LLS networks do not c ...

  10. Robotic Tool for Asteroid Resource Prospecting and Characterization

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: T402

    Optical fibers are inherently tolerant of cosmic radiation and a wide temperature range, immune to electromagnetic noise and thus solar flares, etc. Embedded fiber sensors can be highly resistant to shock and vibration, hence their usage in the oil drilling industry. IFOS will work with Stanford?s Center for Design Research to develop a robotic prospecting tool with fiber-optic based haptic sensi ...
