  1. Enhanced Ethanol Diesel Blend for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 05NCERB2

    New engine diesel pollution is addressed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Diesel Truck and Buses, low sulfur diesel, and nonroad diesel rules.  Unfortunately, slow fleet turnover will extend full implementation.  EPA is interested in both retrofit technologies that reduce emissions (particulate matter, volatile organic pollutants, NOx) from diesel sourc ...

  2. Processor for Real-Time Atmospheric Compensation in Long-Range Imaging

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: O203

    Range surveillance is a critical component of space exploration because of its implications on safety, cost, and overall mission timeline. However, launch delays, due to the difficulty of verifying a cleared range, are common and will increase as spaceports are developed in new areas. In order to expedite range clearance, it is vital to see "through" the atmosphere. Unfortunately, the quality ...

  3. High-Conductance Thermal Interfaces Based on Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S607

    We propose to develop a novel thermal interface material (TIM) that is based on an array of vertical carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for high heat flux applications. For high precision, spaceborne lasers and other high power devices critical to NASA's Science Mission Directorate, heat flux levels are projected to reach 100 W/cm2. The state-of-the-art in space-compatible thermal interface materials (TIMs ...

  4. Highly Effective Thermal Regenerator for Low Temperature Cryocoolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S403

    Future missions to investigate the structure and evolution of the universe require highly efficient, low-temperature cryocoolers for low-noise detector systems. We propose to develop a highly efficient low-cost regenerator for regenerative cryocoolers with cooling temperatures in the range of 15 K and below. The proposed regenerator uses an innovative non-rare-earth material to achieve a volumetri ...

  5. Liquid-Liquid Heat Exchanger With Zero Interpath Leakage

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: X1201

    Future manned spacecraft will require thermal management systems that effectively and safely control the temperature in inhabited modules. Interface heat exchangers will be required that isolate the heat transfer fluid in the spacecraft thermal bus from the circulating water used to cool inhabited modules. We propose to develop an innovative heat exchanger that provides two completely independen ...

  6. Laser-Based Acoustic Emission Detection for Building Stability Assessment

    SBC: AAC International            Topic: HSB052005

    A laser-based acoustic emission (AE) detection device is proposed for structural stability assessment of buildings in order to provide warning of structural instability or pending collapse. It will help to reduce injuries and fatalities during emergency mitigation operations. This new device will take advantage of innovations in laser ultrasonics, artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced acoustic ...

  7. Prototyping a Rangeland Decision Support System

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: E401

    This proposal is submitted under the Innovative Tools and Techniques Supporting the Practical Uses of Earth Science Observations topic. We seek to create a prototype rangeland decision support system that links remote sensing based rangeland products, a soil biogeochemical model and web-based tools for data mining, data management and product visualization. The resulting decision support system wi ...

  8. Cost-Saving Enhancements to the Swimmer Detection Sonar Network (SDSN)

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: HSB051004

    A low cost Swimmer Detection Sonar Network (SDSN) is now being developed under an ONR Phase 2 SBIR and as a joint project between the USA and Singapore. The SDSN is a network of inexpensive sonar nodes where narrow sonar beams are formed using airbacked parabolic reflectors. The feasibility of the system has been proven through trials conducted in Singapore harbor and full development is well unde ...

  9. A Retrofit and Low-Cost Small Industrial Boiler Flue Gas Purification Technology

    SBC: CM-Tec, Inc.            Topic: 04NCERB1

    This novel technology can simultaneously remove particulate matter smaller than 10 microns (PM10), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NO X), and mercury (Hg) from the flue gases of oil and coal-fired small industrial boilers. The technology uses ozone to oxidize NO into high oxides, and applies an innovative catalytic sorbent material to convert high nitrogen oxides and SO2 into nitric acid an ...

  10. Optimal Composite Materials using NASA Resins or POSS Nanoparticle Modifications for Low Cost Fabrication of Large Composite Aerospace Structures

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X602

    Reduced mass composite materials are crucial to the success of aerospace systems, but their adoption is inhibited because they require autoclave consolidation, a process that is prohibitively expensive for large aerospace structure. To remedy this, NASA-LaRC has been developing cost-effective high-performance thermoplastic composite processing equipment that enables out-of-autoclave tape placemen ...
