  1. Equipment and Facilities for Rapid Installation of Buried Innerduct Network for Utility Lines

    SBC: Outside Plant Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of the universal placement of telecommunications and power supply lines below ground, as an alternative to their typically low-cost installation on utility poles, depends upon the availability of a cost-effective convenient method for placing and replacing cables belowground. A network of underground conduits constructed of field-assembled rigid sections, including straight segmen ...

  2. Heated Thermoplastic Fiber Placement Head for NASA Langley Research Center

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A404

    Reduced mass composite materials are crucial to the success of aerospace systems, but are inhibited by expensive autoclave consolidation, especially for large parts. To remedy this, NASA-LaRC has been developing cost-effective high-performance thermoplastic composite materials for years. NASA materials could dramatically reduce the cost of large aerospace structures, because those materials avo ...

  3. Smart Materials Technology for High Speed Adaptive Inlet/Nozzle Design

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: A203

    Enabling a new generation of high speed civil aircraft will require breakthrough developments in propulsion design, including novel techniques to optimize inlet performance across a wide speed range. Maximizing propulsive performance while minimizing weight and mechanical complexity is a key goal for such systems, and rapidly maturing smart materials technology can enable adaptive control of inle ...

  4. Low Permeation Envelope Material Development for Titan Aerobot

    SBC: Lamart Corporation            Topic: S202

    Aerobot vehicles for missions on Titan require envelope materials that are strong, light and durable. Unlike terrestrial balloon materials, these must be able to withstand flexing at temperatures of 90K without developing pinhole leaks. To meet this requirement, it is proposed to use Lamart?s experience in lightweight laminated sailcloth and ultra light film lamination to create a material for thi ...

  5. Nanomaterials Enabled High Energy and Power Density Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: F309

    There is a need for high energy (~ 200 Wh/kg) and high power (> 500 W/kg) density rechargeable Li-ion batteries that are safe and reliable for several space and consumer applications. State-of-the-art rechargeable Li-ion batteries are incapable of fulfilling these stringent requirements. We propose to develop high energy and power density nanocomposite cathodes that will lead to thermally stable ...

  6. Monolithic Approach to Oxide Dispersion Strengthened Aluminum

    SBC: Nassau Stern Company            Topic: N/A

    Nassau Stern Company is investigating an approach for manufacturing oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) aluminum in bulk rather than powder form. The approach combines novel ceramic injection molding technology to produce preforms for subsequent pressure infiltration casting with aluminum. The preforms contain between 30 and 40 volume percent sub-micron aluminum oxide and 60 to 70 volume percent n ...

  7. Wireless System for Continuous Cardiopulmonary Monitoring in a Space Environment

    SBC: New Jersey Microsystems, Inc.            Topic: B305

    We propose to develop the NJM Sense-It system based on small sensor tags, which include a cardiopulmonary MEMS sensor for measuring heartbeat and breath rates continuously. In addition, the proposed sensor system can be operated in extended bandwidth mode to measure detail cardiopulmonary phonic pattern upon control from the reader. The system operates within a central reader at 915 MHz with as ma ...

  8. In Situ Biological Reduction of Martian Sample Collection Devices

    SBC: PlasmaSol Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mars is a planet where life forms or their remnants may be found, all lander or probe missions to Mars must be cleaned and sterilized to the Category IV planetary protection requirements. Cross-contamination during sampling for in situ life-detection missions and sample turn missions remains a problem. It is desirable to develop a simple, portable sterilization device which would enable in situ cl ...

  9. Battery Separator Membrane Having a Selectable Thermal Shut-Down Temperature

    SBC: Policell Technolpgies, Inc.            Topic: F309

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I proposal to NASA requests $69,367.13 support for Policell Technologies, Inc. to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a novel battery separator membrane having a selectable thermal shut-down temperature (from 60 to 120 deg C). The separator will be used for making high energy density rechargeable battery. This proposal responds to Topic Number F3 ...

  10. Turn-key Near-Infrared Photon-Counting Detector Module for LIDAR Applications

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and deliver a turn-key photon counting detector module for near-infrared wavelengths, based on large-area InGaAs/InP avalanche photodiodes (APDs) that have been optimized for photon counting. The detector module will incorporate all of the essential photon-counting detector system elements: thermoelectric cooling, high-speed bias gating and avalanche quenching circuits, power ...
