  1. Ultra-Thin Ply Formable Material from Reusable Short Carbon Fiber Composites

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: T12

    This project develops an ultra-thin and formable prepreg material from reusable short carbon fiber composites (CFC), including process and material development, test panel fabrication and mechanical performance evaluation. Key to superior performance of ultra-thin ply materials is the ability to fabricate high fiber volume and uniform fiber distribution prepreg with low void content and layer thic ...

  2. Collaborative Trajectory Options Planning for the Flight Deck

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A3

    We develop Flight Deck (FD) and Airline Operational Control (AOC) Decision Support Tools (DSTs) for strategic guidance to pilots for mitigating encounters with en route weather hazards.  Implemented on either Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) or Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs), the system is designed to increase the likelihood of Air Traffic Control (ATC) approv ...

  3. Virtual Marketplace for Urban Air Mobility

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A3

    We build a software system that executes a virtual marketplace for urban air mobility (UAM).  The virtual marketplace will serve the traveling public with an on-demand system that connects multi-modal modes of transportation in a competitive marketplace environment utilizing forward auctions and reverse auctions to provide cost effective transportation of people and goods.  The virtual m ...

  4. Nanophotonic and Capillary Assisted Water Recovery

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: H3

    The current generation of spacecraft and terrestrial water recovery technologies are often prone to failures caused by biofouling and mineral scaling, which can clog mechanical systems and degrade the performance of capillary-based technologies. These failures require expensive and time-consuming maintenance and resupply, and the technologies are therefore limited to environments where these resou ...

  5. Advanced Passive Phase Separations for Space Exploration

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H8

    Nearly all fluid systems aboard spacecraft are, or become, multiphase fluid systems, whether by design or default. Unfortunately, we still do not possess ample understanding of low-g fluid phenomena to assure performance and avoid system failure. Though inadequate fluid system design can lead to disastrous consequences, for the most part, and for life support systems in general, precious crew time ...

  6. Multi-Spectral Infrared Focal Plane Array For Wildfire And Burning-Biomass Analysis

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S1

    An important NASA mission is to remotely analyze fires, such as wildfires and burning biomasses, for their chemical content. The chemical species of most interest have infrared spectral signatures at wavelengths ranging from 1.5 microns to 12 microns. A broadband infrared focal plane array (FPA) with that spectral coverage and high quantum efficiency is a key technology to enable this mission. Qma ...

  7. A New Class of Miniaturized Lightweight Highly Efficient Solid State Cryogenic Cooler

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: S1

    A new class of solid-state, high-performance cryogenic coolers is proposed for space-based applications. Traditionally, cryocoolers for such applications have been Stirling or pulse tube refrigerators. These cryocoolers, although effective, are heavy, bulky, inefficient, and may cause vibrations. A high-performance solid-state cryocooler based on thermomagnetic cooling via the Ettingshausen effect ...

  8. Optically Interrogated Thin Film Strain Gauge for Balloon

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S3

    To support development of atmospheric balloons and gossamer structures, NASA requires a capability for real-time, dynamic strain measurement in thin polymeric membranes during deployment and flight.  This capability will provide quantitative test data to inform balloon design efforts, as well as enable real-time monitoring of material state during flight.  Existing technologies include w ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. High Efficiency 4 K Cryocooler for Space Missions

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S1

    Future astrophysics missions require efficient, low-temperature cryocoolers to cool advanced instruments or serve as the upper stage cooler for sub-Kelvin refrigerators. Potential astrophysics missions include Lynx, the Origin Space Telescope, and the Superconducting Gravity Gradiometer. Cooling loads for these missions are up to 300 mW at temperatures of 4 to 10 K, with additional loads at higher ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. ASOMIS

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: S5

    The innovation of the Agricultural SOil Moisture and Irrigation Status (A·SOM·IS) platform is the development of operational and moderate resolution mapping and assessment of soil moisture, irrigation status (irrigated vs not), and crop water stress metrics at field scale for agricultural decision support tools. The platform focuses on utilization of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) an ...
