  1. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    The final product is Cyberchase Fractions Quest—a math game based on the storyline of PBS children's television series, Cyberchase. In the game, students in grades 3 and 4 will apply learning fractions within three contexts: areas and regions (such as shapes), sets (groups of objects), and on a number line. The game will identify specific areas where students struggle and will introduce challeng ...

  2. Electrometric Aviation Soot Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A103

    We propose to develop a sensitive PM measurement instrument to determine soot particle mass distribution from aircraft engine exhausts as well as from other IC engine emissions. Fundamental of the proposed technique is to measure particle charge under an electric field. Through extensive experimental and theoretical investigation on soot emissions from IC engines over the past four decades, it has ...

  3. ON-DEMAND: Operations in Dynamic Environments with Manned And Unmanned Aircraft Deconfliction

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A302

    NASA Unmanned Traffic Management Program (UTM) and its early builds focus on requirements for fixed geofencing and low-altitude UAS without interaction with manned flights. However, later builds will require functionality for operation in dynamic missions employing multiple collaborating UAS in mixed manned-unmanned teams, and in environments where pre-specified geofencing, flight planning, and se ...

  4. Helium and Hydrogen Mixed Gas Separator

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: H1003

    This product innovation is directed toward separating hydrogen from helium gas mixtures using a micro-channel separation unit with thin walls of a palladium-silver alloy. The micro-channels are produced in a size range of 100-200 microns such that the boundary layer thickness inside is drastically reduced when mixtures of helium and hydrogen gas flow through the channels. This thin boundary layer ...

  5. Wearable Personal Hydrazine Monitoring System


    We propose to develop a rapid, high sensitivity, personal monitoring device for hydrazine that is based upon the Surface Triggering of Propagated Crystal Lattice Destabilization (STPCLD) phenomenon. This represents a novel approach to rapid, high sensitivity sensors and is based upon noncovalent derivatization (NCD). The sensor will consist of a two-dimensional cocrystal film of a hydrazine-intera ...

  6. Crystal Growth of New Radiation Detector Materials in Microgravity

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: H801

    RMD proposes to conduct a series of crystal growth experiments on the International Space Station in the SUBSA furnace inside the MSG glovebox to grow crystals of new materials that have shown a good radiation detector response and present a commercial interest. There is a great demand for spectroscopic gamma-ray detectors capable of not only detecting presence and intensity of radiation, but also ...

  8. Design and Development of High Gain AlGaN Avalanche Photodiode Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S105

    Future NASA missions that include Explorers, Discovery, Cosmic Origins, Vision Missions and Earth Sciences, and Planetary Science Missions will benefit from development of High Gain AlGaN UV APD Arrays. High resolution imaging in Ultraviolet (UV) band has a lot of potential applications for various NASA systems. UV band offers exciting opportunities for NASA systems as one can use short wavelength ...

  9. Radiation Tolerant Temperature-Invariant Scintillation Modules

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: S106

    Radiation detectors are an invaluable tool for space applications spanning planetary science, astrophysics, heliophysics, space weather, and dosimetry for human exploration. Scintillators are materials that generate a light flash with an intensity that is proportional to the ionizing energy deposited. However, scintillator efficiency gradually decays with increased exposure to radiation. For ex ...

  10. Cryomechanical Preconcentration System for Trace Gas Analysis

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: S109

    Advanced cryogenic cooling systems are required to enable high-precision measurements of trace atmospheric gases and isotopes present at very low concentrations in order to evaluate anthropogenic impacts on climate and stratospheric ozone and to assess compliance with international regulations. This SBIR Phase I project will develop a robust cryogen-free preconcentrator based on a Stirling cryoco ...
