  1. Modeling, Testing and Deploying a Multifunctional Radiation Shielding / Hydrogen Storage Unit

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: B309

    This project addresses two vital problems for long-term space travel activities: radiation shielding and hydrogen storage for power and propulsion. While both problems have been studied for many years, there is currently no satisfactory technology for providing adequate non-parasitic shielding. Even in low-Earth orbit, astronauts must be closely monitored for radiation exposure, and some mission ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Advanced Product Water Removal and Management (APWR) Fuel Cell System

    SBC: Infinity Fuel Cell and Hydrogen, Inc.            Topic: X604

    The proposed innovation is a passive, self-regulating, gravity-independent Advanced Product Water Removal (APWR) system for Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) primary fuel cell power plants that improves power plant efficiency and reliability, reduces reactant consumption, cost, weight and volume and simplifies the supporting system requirements in both near-term and advanced missions. Phase I p ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. System Health and Impact Assessment Environment Demonstrated on ADAPT

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T101

    Space exploration is a unique challenge with many difficulties in its implementation. With a goal of the return of man to the moon and travel to Mars, the stage has been set for the expansion of human knowledge beyond comprehension. Traveling to the moon and Mars, however, will require new and innovative technologies. Key to this will be system health management (SHM). For any given system of the ...

  10. A Phase I Program to Improve Low Temperature Performance of Lithium-Ion Batteries

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: X302

    Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are attractive candidates for use as power sources in aerospace applications because they have high specific energy ( up to 200 Wh/kg) and energy density (~ 500 Wh/L) and long cycle life (1,000 ? 30,000 cycles currently depending on the depth of cycling). However, at temperatures below about ?10oC, their charge/discharge performance is severely degraded which hinders ...
