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. Electrical Power from Thermal Energy Scavenging in High Temperature Environments

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T3

    Physical Sciences Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a novel approach to scavenging heat from high intensity thermal environments encountered during space missions and converting this thermal power to electrical power at high efficiency.  Examples include extremely hot heat shields during vehicle entry into planetary atmospheres (Mars/Venus probes) and during high speed ascent thro ...

  2. Integrated Adaptive Route Capability

    SBC: CGH TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A3

    This SBIR provides advanced, automated mechanisms for ANSPs and the flight operators to enrich and interact with IFR Preferred Routes in the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS). The FAA’s Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) Preferred Route Program was developed to allow air traffic facilities to identify select routes for use into and out of busy airports and airspace.  We apply automation to ...

  3. Project Patchwork- Wirelessly Networked Structural Analysis Devices for Aircraft

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: A2

    Through this SBIR effort, NASA is looking for innovative technology to bolster its flight research capabilities.  Particularly, NASA seeks the development of innovative measurement and data acquisition approaches.  Mide through a past RIF BAA for Navair, developed a stand-alone high performance data logger for vibration/acceleration, pressure, and temperature. The device, dubbed the Slam ...

  4. Bi2212 Superconductors for High-Power Density Motors for Aero Propulsion

    SBC: Solid Material Solutions, LLC            Topic: A1

    Future hybrid aircraft, such as NASA’s N3-X plan, will require all-superconducting electric motors and generators in order to achieve power density in excess of 10 kW/kg.   Unlike the DC rotor, the stator must operate in AC mode, for example, from 0-0.5 T at 120 Hz, making it impossible to use high temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes due to their high losses in transient fields, req ...

  5. Electrochromic Laminates For Advanced Spacesuit Visors

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: H4

    NASA's Extravehicular Mobility Unit, or EMU, is a personal mini-spacecraft that comprises the space suit assembly and life support systems. The current EMU has a manually operated extravehicular visor assembly (EVVA) that provides protection from micrometeoroids and from solar ultraviolet and infrared radiation. For the integration of EVVA with NASA’s next generation space suits helmet b ...

  6. Dehydration Resistant And Dimensionally Stable High Performance Membrane

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: H1

    In several technologies within NASA’s In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) systems, such as fuel cell, water electrolysis and gas/water separations etc., polymeric membranes, especially proton exchange membranes (PEM), play an important role. These membranes are generally hygroscopic, subject to swelling in the presence of humidity or water. When restrained membranes undergo a hydration/dehyd ...

  7. Data Logger for Measuring Body Dynamics in Spaceflight Environment (MBISE)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: H12

    During dynamic events such as launch, ascent abort, atmospheric reentry, descent, and landing, crewmembers will experience significant inertial and vibrational loading.  To this date, data has not been collected in flight.  There is particular interest in the chest, neck, and head region, which are exceptionally sensitive areas.  Quantifying the loading on the crewmembers will allow ...

  8. Capacitive Deionization (CDI) for Efficient Desalination of Water in Space

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: H3

    In this Phase 1 SBIR proposal, Vuronyx Technologies will design an energy efficient, low footprint water recovery system for space applications. The proposed system will integrate two emerging water purification approaches - a capacitive deionization (CDI) system to remove ions, and an Electrochemical Advanced Oxidation Process (EAOP) to remove organic contaminants and microbes. The proposed work ...

  9. Compact High Efficiency GaN-based PPU

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: S3

    Busek proposes to develop a low-cost, lightweight Hall Effect Thruster (HET) Power Processing Unit (PPU) at targeted 1kW/kg power density with more than 97% efficiency. The proposed PPU solution adopts advanced GaN power MOSFETs and PCB based planar magnetics technology to enable high switching frequency operation. Reduced headcount of magnetics, semiconductors and associated driver integrated cir ...

  10. Compact, Low Current Superconductor Coil Operating Above 15 K for Magnetic Cooling

    SBC: Solid Material Solutions, LLC            Topic: S1

    Adiabatic Magnetic Refrigeration (ADR) can achieve much better efficiency, and with fewer moving parts than compressor-refrigerators, making it the choice for space-based instruments that require cooling to the sub-Kelvin range. The low operating currents required for space-based usage, the high operating current densities to keep weight and size down, as well as the benefits of higher operating t ...
