  3. Titanium-Water Heat Pipe Radiator for Spacecraft Fission Power

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H802

    In this SBIR Phase II program Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes to develop titanium/water heat pipes suitable for Spacecraft Fission Power applications. NASA is currently examining small fission power reactors design, such as the Kilopower, which aims to provide roughly 1 kW of electric power. Kilopower plans to use titanium/water heat pipes to remove the waste heat from the cold ...

  4. STARwatch to Deliver Objective Sleep Measures for Spaceflight Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: H1203

    This project will achieve a wrist-worn actigraphy device called STARwatch, designed specifically for space exploration environments. It will provide a minimally obtrusive, objective measure that evaluates astronaut sleep-wake activity and light exposure. This project will leverage our second-generation actigraphy device that has already been validated in controlled laboratory experiments against g ...

  5. Vapor Chamber with Phase Change Material-Based Wick Structure for Thermal Control of Manned Spacecraft

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: H301

    During a NASA Phase I SBIR program, ACT addressed the need for light-weight, non-venting PCM heat storage devices by successfully demonstrating proof-of-concept of a vapor chamber with a PCM-based wick structure. The principal objective of the Phase II program is to design, fabricate, and test a full-scale PCM vapor chamber. Goals of the Phase II program include establishing thermal and structural ...

  6. Hybrid Heat Pipes for High Heat Flux Applications

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S307

    The thermal transport requirements for future spacecraft missions continue to increase, approaching several kilowatts. At the same time the heat acquisition areas have trended downward, thereby increasing the incident heat flux. Current incident heat flux for laser diode applications is on the order of 5-10W/cm2, although this is expected to increase towards 50W/cm2. This is a severe limitation fo ...

  7. Whimbrel Unmanned Aircraft System-Borne Atmospheric and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Sensor

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: 845RWP

    Piasecki Aircraft (PiAC) proposes to continue development and testing efforts of the Whimbrel UAS, a low cost, expendable, air-deployed weather survey unmanned aircraft system. The Whimbrel UAS, a low cost, expendable, air-deployed weather survey unmanned aircraft system. The Whimbrel USA has been developed to support the Tropical Cyclone Boundary Layer mission requirements and contains sensors an ...

  8. Context-Augmented Robotic Interaction Layer (CARIL) Phase II

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: H2001

    CHI Systems and the Institute for Human Machine Cognition have teamed to create a human-robot interaction system that leverages cognitive representations of shared context as a basis for a fundamentally new approach to human-robotic interaction. This approach centers on a framework for representing context, and for using context to enable robot adaptive decision-making and behavior. The framework ...

  9. Ultraprecision Pointing Accuracy for SmallSat/CubeSat Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: S305

    The Phase I program concluded with the successful demonstration of a piezo enhanced pointing system targeted to the CubeSat class of satellites. The Phase I program results also surpassed the Phase I goals allowing the proposed Phase II program to further push the capabilities and design of the approach. The main objective of the Phase II program is to further quantify the performance of the Att ...

  10. Variable Conductance Heat Pipes for Radioisotope Stirling Systems

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S203

    The overall technical objective of the proposed Phase II program is to complete a system-level demonstration to show the capability and benefits of integrating this backup radiator/Variable Conductance Heat Pipe (VCHP) with the Advanced Stirling Radioisotope Generator (ASRG). The Phase I project developed a feasible VCHP radiator design that can be integrated with the ASRG. In Phase II, a trade ...
