  1. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  2. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: DTRA14B001

    The US DoD requires robust ways of neutralizing threats posed by hostile powers and terrorist organizations that may be in possession of dangerous weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Unfortunately, the weapons currently available to the DoD do not offer a way for the WMD to be destroyed without risking the spread of that material throughout the area. The strategy for the defeat of biological weapo ...

  3. Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM Applications

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...

  4. Modular Electric Propulsion Test Bed Aircraft

    SBC: ROLLING HILLS RESEARCH CORP            Topic: T901

    An all electric aircraft test bed is proposed to provide a dedicated development environment for the rigorous study and advancement of electrically powered aircraft. The new test bed aircraft will be developed from an existing conventional airframe and provide a dedicated platform to study, design, and test electrically powered propulsion systems for use in commercial, military, and general aviat ...

  5. 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) ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Solid-State Lithium-ion Batteries for Electrified Aircraft Propulsion Energy Storage

    SBC: Aegis Technology Inc.            Topic: T15

    In this NASA STTR project, Aegis Technology is teamed with Cornell University and proposes to develop a novel class of all-solid-state Li-ion batteries (ASSLiBs) based on a proprietary solid electrolyte and a novel cell structure design. This electrolyte can provide not only high ionic conductivities, but also wide operating temperature ranges, and nbsp;good compatibilities with designed electrode ...

  10. In-Space Plant Nutrient: Acicular Surface Modified Polymers for Aiding Faceted Sodium Chloride Separation from Urine

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: T6

    nbsp;For long duration space travel to be practical, regenerative life support capabilities are needed for continual recycling of system resources, including waste streams (urine and wastewater). Nutrient recycling is essential to providing important nutrients and fertilizer for plants. NASA seeks approaches for using in situ waste streams for this purpose. InnoSense LLC (ISL) will develop ACSUMOP ...
