The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. High Burn Rate Hybrid Fuel for Improved Grain Design

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: X601

    A novel type of fuel providing high burning rate for hybrid rocket applications is proposed. This fuel maintains a hydrodynamically rough surface to radically enhance convective heat transfer rate, and hence the fuel burn rate. This is achieved by incorporating a particulate fuel material dispersed within a continuum phase polymer matrix. The dispersed fuel material is chosen to transition f ...

  2. High Transparent Metal Oxide / Polyimide Antistatic Coatings

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: X207

    NASA requires clear antistatic coatings that can withstand exposure to the rigors of the space environment. Agiltron proposes a coating consisting of inorganic conducting particles and space environment resistant polymer that shares the best features of inorganics and organics currently available. Such a coating could potentially be processed by common polymeric routes yet have the optical/electri ...

  3. An Instrument for Detecting Protein Expression Under Radiation and Microgravity

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: S405

    An understanding of the basic cellular mechanisms organisms use to cope with extreme environments is important as we search for life in other parts of the universe and seek to adapt terrestrial life beyond earth. Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. proposes to build an automated, high-throughput instrument to measure changes in protein expression levels in single living cells during passage in a sp ...

  4. ArC- A Low Cost Scalable Archive Storage Management System

    SBC: Archivas Inc.            Topic: E305

    NRC's Committee on Government Data Centers made a set of technology recommendations for data centers meet user needs and develop the long-term record of environmental change. ArC is a low cost scalable Archive Storage Management System that will help NASA respond to the NRC recommendations. The ArC architecture is innovative in the replacement of current tape-based archival systems with a highly ...

  5. Integration of Full-Spectrum Metrology and Polishing for Rapid Production of Large Aspheres

    SBC: Bauer Associates, Inc.            Topic: S205

    We propose to design, build, and test a major new instrument capable of both measuring and polishing the surface of aspheric mirrors up to 1.2 meters in diameter, and up to f-0.5 in speed, either concave or convex. In the successful Phase I proposal, we laid out the instrument to the component level, and laid out and analyzed every critical subsystem. We also investigated and experimented with t ...

  6. High Resolution Silicon Deformable Mirrors

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a plan to build a prototype small stroke, high precision deformable mirror suitable for space-based operation in systems for high-resolution imaging. The prototype DM will be fabricated through a novel combination of micromachining and wafer bonding steps, and will rely on single crystal silicon for all structural components, promising unprecedented thermal stability and op ...

  7. Radio Frequency Micro Ion Thruster for Precision Propulsion

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: S301

    Busek proposes to develop radio frequency discharge, gridded micro-ion thruster that produces sub-mN thrust precisely adjustable over a wide dynamic thrust range. Such propulsion is needed to augment and overlap the present micro Newton propulsion such as colloid thruster. The RF was selected to eliminate the internal cathode of the DC discharge ion thrusters. This cathode could be a life limit ...

  8. Micro Resistojet for Small Satellites

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: S104

    Micro-resistojets offer the best combination of simplicity, performance, wet system mass and power consumption for small satellites (

  9. Shared Magnetics Hall Thruster

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: S102

    In the proposed Phase I program, Busek Co. will demonstrate an innovative methodology for clustering Hall thrusters into a high performance, very high power propulsion system. The concept uses multiple thruster discharge assemblies with a common (shared) magnetic structure. The concept combines the benefits of clustering that include modularity, reliability, reduced beam divergence and throttlea ...

  10. Single Molecule Scanning of DNA Radiation Oxidative Damage

    SBC: CHAN RESEARCH, LLC            Topic: S405

    This proposal will develop an assay to map genomic DNA, at the single molecule level and in a nanodevice, for oxidative DNA damage arising from radiation exposure; this will result in a highly quantitative approach to real-time health monitoring, dose response studies, studies of cancer progression, and systematic analyses of immunologically compromised cells. Exposure to radiation damages DNA. ...
