  2. Rapid Prototyping of Beam-Shaping Metamaterial Antennas via Additive Manufacturing of a Highly Conductive Filament

    SBC: Multi3D LLC            Topic: T8

    This NASA STTR Phase I proposal is aimed at rapid prototyping of antennas beam-shaping with metamaterials and metasurfaces through additive manufacturing of a highly conductive filament - Electrifi. The proposal includes the use of the highly conductive 3D printing filament, which was developed by Dr. Shengrong Ye, the principal investigator at the SBC - Multi3D and is at least 100 times more cond ...

  3. Bimodal Ion-Chemical Thruster System

    SBC: Espace Inc            Topic: T2

    A top candidate ldquo;greenrdquo; monopropellant proposed as a safe replacement for hydrazine in spacecraft systems is also shown in tests to be a high performance propellant for ion electrospray thrusters.nbsp;The proposed effort is to take full advantage of these remarkable characteristics to develop an efficient bimodal ion-chemical thruster system using a common propellant supply tank.The expe ...

  4. Photonics Integrated Circuit Enabled Miniature On-Chip Urine Test system with High Sensitivity and Reliability


    Urine testing is an effective method for routine health monitoring. Spectroscopy-based urine test offers a highly sensitive and accurate urine test method with much less clinical lab equipment requirement. Existing spectroscopy urine test systems are still bulky, heavy, costly, and with high power consumption and thus not suitable for astronaut health monitoring in space. Photonics integrated circ ...

  5. Manufacturing Optimization of High-Actuator-Count Deformable Mirrors for Mirror Quality and Actuator Yield Assurance

    SBC: Microscale, Inc.            Topic: S2

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to improve the mirror quality of thenbsp;PZT stack actuator DMs. With verified DM performance in terms of key performance parameters such as stroke, leakage current, speed, influence function as well asnbsp;the validity of the superposition law in the DM control, the innovation further strives to optimize the manufacturing processnbsp;to ultimately improve the mirror ...

  6. Integral Neutron and Gamma Shield Material

    SBC: Millennitek, LLC            Topic: Z1

    A new class of material will be synthesized and tested at the coupon level, as a potentialnbsp;integral neutron and gamma shield for the Kilopower Project and other small fission reactor technologies under development.nbsp; The new material will have a competitive mass and volume -to- shielding effectiveness and offer a superior stable form as compared to the currently best available technology co ...

  7. Optimization of the Manufacturing Parameters for the Assembly of Protein-Based Retinal Implants in Microgravity

    SBC: LAMBDAVISION, INC.            Topic: H8

    LambdaVision developed a protein-based retinal implant to restore vision to the millions of people who are blinded by retinal degenerative diseases, including retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration. Preclinical evaluation of the technology, including ex vivo extracellular recording experiments and in vivo surgical development, demonstrated that we are able to reproducibly stimul ...

  8. Space Boot Binding System for Surface Missions

    SBC: INNOVATIVE AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: H4

    The Space Suit Boot Binding System for Surface Missions supports the next generation space suit. The crew dons a snug fitting Inner Boot, and slides it through the xPGS Leg Assembly toward the attached Outer Boot. Two spring loaded pins integrated into the Inner Boot Sole Plate (IBSP), inboard of the crewrsquo;s toes, mate with receiving bushings on the Outer Boot Sole Plate (OBSP). The crew press ...

  9. Information Hedging from Sensing to Cognition to ensure Coherent Decision Making

    SBC: nodein            Topic: A2

    Maintaining consistent information flow between abstraction layers, from sensing to cognition, to ensure consistent decision-making is difficult. We are proposing an entirely new data structure, based on hypergraphs, to solve this problem. These hypergraph data structures will be developed in a domain specific language known as NodeLab and serve as a unified knowledge representation that can accep ...

  10. Model Based Data Integration and Fault Management (FM) Architecture Design Trade Studies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    NASA uses a variety of tools to conduct its FM activities. However, these tools are varied and disjoint, and require manual intervention to transfer data from the output of one tool to the input of another. This process is tedious, error-prone and scales poorly for large, complex systems. In addition, these tools are often ldquo;silorsquo;edrdquo; to the singular functionality for which they were ...
