  1. QMU in Integrated Spacecraft System Models

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: T5

    ACTA and Sandia National Laboratories propose to quantify and propagate substructure modeling uncertainty for reduced-order substructure models to higher levels of system assembly, thereby enabling predictive simulations of engineering designs with quantified margins and uncertainties for model-based flight qualification of complete spacecraft. A critical part of this process is the accurate mode ...

  3. STTR Phase I: New Manufacturing Techniques to Produce High Quality Thin Films of Inherently Conducting Polymer Nanofibers Over a Large Area

    SBC: Fibron Inc.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop a manufacturing process that can coat a variety of substrates with uniform thin films of inherently conducting polymer (ICP) nanofibers over a large area. Traditionally, these nanostructured organic materials are difficult to process into thin films covering a large area, which has limited the commercial applicability ...

  4. Exploiting the Mating Phenotype of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to Enhance Harvesting in Large-Scale Oil Production from Algae

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: A10

    This STTR Phase I project proposes to develop and establish a novel clumping (flocculation) strain of algal using an engineered extracellar protein that can be induced. The overarching goal is to provide the industry with a novel, energy efficient, and cost effective tool to dewater microalgae. What are the broader/commercial impacts of the proposed project? The broader/commercial impact of the p ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Advanced Uncooled Infrared Detectors at the Nano-Scale

    SBC: KYTARO, INC.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project aims to develop highly sensitive and inexpensive uncooled microbolometers using ultra-thin films of metals, metal oxides, or semi-metals. These microbolometers will be attractive for use in portable night vision devices and other thermal imaging applications that require a Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) of less than 20 mK. We ...

  6. Enhanced Methane Production by Co-Gasification of Potassium-Rich Biomass and Coal

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25a

    Natural gas, which is predominantly methane, is widely used by industry as a chemical feedstock and as a fuel for power generation. The increasing price and diminishing domestic supply of natural gas creates an incentive to develop a low-cost replacement for the fuel. Coal gasification is one approach to provide the alternative fuel. However, the dominant commercially available coal gasifiers are ...

  7. Three-Dimensional Backscatter X-Ray Imaging System

    SBC: ARIBEX            Topic: T7

    The overall objective of the proposal is to design, develop and demonstrate a potentially portable Compton x-ray scatter 3D-imaging system by using specially designed rotationally movable x-ray source and x-ray detector, and the development of a suitable 3D-processing computer model. The proposed rotational configuration will allow the acquisition of multiple projections or images 360

  8. Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser Based 3D Imaging

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: T7

    The NASA Constellation program has a need to non-destructively test (NDT) non-metallic materials (foams, Shuttle Tile, Avcoat, etc) for defects such as delaminations and voids. While imaging systems at terahertz frequencies (0.3 to 3 THz) have been demonstrated for 2D imaging of similar materials, they have not yet demonstrate full 3D volumetric imaging. To meet this need, LongWave Photonics pro ...

  9. Efficient plasma synthesis of high-quality graphene

    SBC: APS LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop a highly-efficient and cost-effective plasma-based method for graphene mass production. The approach is to utilize unique properties of magnetically controlled arc discharge to couple the plasma production of carbon species and the synthesis of graphene. The broader/commercial impact of this project will be the potenti ...

  10. STTR Phase I: Bistable Electroactive Polymers for Refreshable Braille Displays

    SBC: Polyradiant            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I project aims to develop a refreshable Braille display for the blind. Existing Braille technologies require complicated mechanical designs that are bulky and too expensive for personal use. A new technology based on a new smart material (bistable electroactive polymer) will be developed to enable a Braille dot array on a thin flat panel. The ...
