  1. A Novel, Membrane-Based Bioreactor Design to Enable a Closed-Loop System on Earth and Beyond

    SBC: Mango Materials, Inc.            Topic: T604

    The proposed innovation is a membrane bioreactor system to produce a biopolymer from methane gas that is applicable in outer space environments. This new methane fermentation process will expand and advance current gas delivery techniques to create affordable fermentation methods on Earth and beyond. Mango Materials is currently working to scale up and commercialize the production of polyhydroxyal ...

  2. Demonstration of Autonomous Differential Throttle-based Flight Control for Aircraft with Distributed Electric Propulsion

    SBC: EMPIRICAL SYSTEMS AEROSPACE INC            Topic: T15

    A series of RDT&E activities is proposed to create and demonstrate a reconfigurable, autonomous flight controller for the Aircraft for Distributed Electric Propulsion Throttle-based Flight Control (ADEPT-FC) which was designed and built in Phase I, a 33 lb remote controlled aircraft featuring eight overwing electric ducted fans (EDFs) distributed spanwise along the wing’s trailing edge. The prop ...

  3. Failsafe

    SBC: KESTREL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: T101

    With embedded software becoming ever more complex, assuming that it behaves perfectly is not realistic. The adaptation of fault protection concepts to embedded software is attractive, particularly in the context of the fault containment and health management capabilities provided by ARINC 653. In Phase II we shall develop tools to define simple, verifiable models that characterize the software wit ...

  4. High Performance 3D Photonic Integration for Space Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: T8

    In this work, Freedom Photonics will team with University of California, Santa Barbara to develop a hybrid integration platform that integrates yielded, best-of-breed active optical components with low-cost, high functionality Silicon Photonics components in a manner that is compatible with foundry fabrication (such as AIM Photonics). This will be performed in a highly manufacturable manner, using ...

  7. Integrated Optical Transmitter for Space Based Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: T802

    Next generation optical modems for NASA will be based on the RZ-DPSK modulation format. This modulation format is robust, delivers high quantum efficiency and allows burst-mode operation, key when using a power limited transmitter in combination with a fixed delay line DPSK demodulator. Freedom Photonics approach in this proposed program is to integrate the laser, modulator, and amplifier into a s ...

  8. Miniature Active Space Radiation Dosimeter

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: T102

    Space Micro will extend our Phase I R&D to develop a family of miniature, active space radiation dosimeters/particle counters, with a focus on biological/manned dose levels. A single board design will support both manned level and space electronics level dosimetry needs. This is enabled by the density and features of commercial high density silicon semiconductor memory devices, coupled with innova ...

  9. Modular Embedded Intelligent Sensor Network

    SBC: Angstrom Designs, Inc.            Topic: T1301

    No existing commercial wireless sensor network option meets NASAs current needs for flexibility, size, mass and resilience to extreme environments. The proposed innovation is a MEIS network which combines any number and any type of sensors into a wireless sensor network (WSN), with each of the sensors being motes, or nodes, on the network. The network will be self-healing and self-configuring. Eac ...
