  1. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...

  2. Predictive Situational Awareness Tool

    SBC: S&K Aerospace            Topic: X601

    Situational Awareness is the key element of performing safe and effective operations, and the space vehicle operations carried out by NASA is by no means an exception to the rule. Astronauts and flight controllers need to maintain awareness of the situation in the space vehicles, robots, habitats, Mission Control Center, and other systems. NASA has devoted and continues to devote a significant am ...

  3. Cloud Liquid Water Content Sensor for Radiosondes

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: A104

    Icing is one of the most significant hazards to aircraft. There is still much research to be completed with regard to developing remote-sensing technologies for accurately identifying where icing conditions exist in clouds. There is a need to provide in-situ measurements of cloud liquid water content to validate the remote measurements.Anasphere, Inc. proposes to develop a modernized version of ...

  4. Physics-based Modeling of Foreign Object Damage in Ceramic Matrix Composites

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A201

    In this Phase I SBIR, Firehole Technologies will develop proof-of-concept modeling framework for a multiscale physics-based modeling tool for predicting foreign object damage in ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). We will accomplish this by adapting the core technology, multicontinuum theory (MCT), from our existing industry-leading software analysis tool, Helius:MCT, to the problem of impact damage ...

  5. New and Improved Lithium-Ion Battery


    This project is a partnership effort between American Energy Technologies Company (Illinois), Yardney Technical Products (Connecticut) and A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute of Drexel University (Pennsylvania). The proposing team seeks to demonstrate tangible improvement in the performance of Lithium-Ion batteries by way of increasing their specific energy density beyond 300 Wh/kg at C/2 in the ...

  6. Advanced Tethersonde for High-Speed Flux Measurements

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S108

    Flux measurements of trace gases and other quantities, such as latent heat, are of great importance in scientific field research. One typical flux measurement setup involves placing measurement equipment (sonic anemometers and associated sensors or samplers) on rigid towers (rigidity being required to provide a stable platform for the sonic anemometers). These towers are relatively immobile, and ...

  7. High Coefficient of Performance HgCdTe And Metallic Superlattice-Based Thermoelectric Coolers

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: S302

    We propose the development of nanoscale superlattices (SLs) as the active elements of high efficiency thermoelectric coolers.Recent models predict that the thermoelectric figure of merit ZT can reach 4 for elements fabricated from HgCdTe-based SLs andcould exceed 6 for related metal/semiconductor SLs. The feasibility of using HgCdTe and metal-based SL materials with embeddednanodefects for increas ...

  8. The GlideSonde: A Lifting Body Guided Dropsonde

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S309

    Dropsondes are one of the primary in-situ measurement tools available to research aircraft and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Unlike sensors mounted on aircraft, dropsondes allow a vertical profile of the atmosphere to be taken below the aircraft. A guided dropsonde which could glide away from the launch aircraft will allow profiles to be taken away from the aircraft flight path, and would off ...

  9. Multi-Point Trilateration: A New Approach for Distributed Metrology

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S203

    For NASA missions requiring active control of segmented mirrors, optical trusses and booms, coherent, laser-based approaches such as CW laser interferometers have been preferred because they can provide very high resolution relative position measurements. Other approaches, such as multi-color interferometers can provide absolute range measurements. However, neither technique can measure multiple ...

  10. Fast, Low Loss, Electro-Optic Switch for Quantum Information Processing

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: O103

    Single photon sources and detectors hold the key to achieving success in several quantum communication and computation applications. Many of these goals can be achieved with the realization of low-loss high-speed switching for single photons. AdvR proposes a unique implementation of an electro-optic (EO) deflector with ideal properties for single photon switching. The device operates on the pri ...
