  3. Inflatable Capsule Recovery Raft using OTS Pontoons and Other Components

    SBC: ASRC Federal System Solutions, LLC            Topic: H1002

    The objective of the proposed innovation is to research and study the feasibility of using pontoons (based on Off the Shelf (OTS) equipment) to make an inflatable raft that will support a water-landed space capsule. The advantages of this approach over traditional methods are: 1) Provides stable platform to open hatch for Flight Crew access/egress in less than 1 hour from the time the recovery ves ...

  6. Compact, High-Accuracy Oxygen Flow Meter

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H402

    Life support systems for future space suits will require advanced instrumentation to enable use of the suit for multiple missions. We propose to develop an oxygen flow meter for the space suit ventilation loop that will provide highly accurate flow measurements while meeting challenging requirements for low pressure drop, compact size, and durability. In Phase I, we will prove the feasibility of ...

  8. Industrial Crystallization Facility for Nonlinear Optical Materials

    SBC: Made In Space, Inc.            Topic: H801

    Made In Space, Inc. (MIS) proposes the development of an Industrial Crystal Facility (ICF) for microgravity product manufacturing and applied research. The ICF is focused on advanced materials engineering, rather than biomedical research, and serves a complimentary role to existing NASA-developed hardware, expanding utilization of ISS. Intended applications include nonlinear optical single crystal ...

  9. Microwave Photonic Imaging Radiometer

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: S103

    Passive Microwave Remote Sensing is currently utilized by NASA, NOAA, and USGIS to conduct Earth Science missions, including weather forecasting, early warning systems, and climate studies. Due to budgetary constraints and lack of reliable access to medium-lift vehicles, the current trend in the space industry is towards smaller, cheaper, and more frequent missions. Nano-satellites, such as Cube ...

  10. VLWIR Sensors for Detecting and Tracking Near-Earth Asteroids

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S104

    An important NASA mission is to detect, count and track near-earth asteroids for a variety of reasons including the hazards of collisions with our planet. Such asteroids are mostly dark, small and cold (~ 200K); so they are best detected in the very longwave infrared (VLWIR) wavelength of ~ 16 microns where they glow brightest. To accomplish this, we propose a new cooled VLWIR focal plane array (F ...
