  1. Rodent Centrifuge Facility Quad Locker for ISS Life and Microgravity Science Research

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: H8

    According to the decadal report titled, Life and Physical Sciences Research for a New Era of Space Exploration, a Report, "...the AHB Panel would be remiss if it did not strongly recommend an animal centrifuge capable of accommodating rats/mice at variable gravity levels." Furthermore, the panel stated, “...research on animal models will be constrained without the ability to manipulate the gravi ...

  2. Fiber-fed Advanced Pulsed Plasma Thruster (FPPT)

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: Z8

    CU Aerospace (CUA) proposes the continued development of a Fiber-fed Pulsed Plasma Thruster (FPPT) that will enable cis-lunar and deep space missions for small satellites. While classic PPT technology is mature, it has historically been limited by its propellant load to precision pointing and small delta-V applications. A recent thruster advancement by CUA, Monofilament Vaporization Propulsion (MV ...

  3. CUA OpenMP Nonlinear Optimization Tool

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: H9

    Nonlinear programming (NLP) allows for the solution of complex engineering problems, however, none of the currently available solvers fully capitalize on parallel computing. Many NASA trajectory design packages (OTIS, EMTG, MALTO) have already had their own code streamlined, and it is now the serial execution of existing NLP solvers that represents the largest bottleneck. It is the goal of this Ph ...

  4. Cold Weather Technology Development for Low Altitude Ultra-Long Endurance Applications

    SBC: VANILLA AIRCRAFT            Topic: S309

    Currently, wide area coverage with manned aircraft, or existing unmanned air systems, requires expensive logistical operations and many flight sorties, which are made especially difficult if operating from remote airfields in inhospitable climates. There is currently a need for a low-altitude long endurance unmanned aircraft that can provide the expansive coverage necessary for cryospheric investi ...

  5. Radiation Tolerant > 35% Efficient Phosphide-Based Multi-Junction Solar Cells with Epitaxial Lift-Off

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: S3

    As the world leader in volume production of large-area epitaxial lift-off (ELO) III-V inverted metamorphic multi-junction (IMM) solar cells, MicroLink proposes to develop phosphide-based ELO-IMM four-junction (4J) and five-junction (5J) solar cells that will enhance the performance and capabilities of solar photovoltaic arrays for a variety of future NASA missions. Relative to state-of-the-art inc ...

  6. Type-II Superlattice Based Low Dark Current Short-Wavelength Infrared Photodetectors With Optical Response From 0.4 to 2.5um

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: S1

    In recent years, Type-II superlattices have experienced significant development. However, the full potential of Type-II superlattice has not been fully explored and alternate superlattice architectures hold great promise. Despite demonstration of SWIR photodetectors based on this material system, there has been no report about Type-II superlattice-based photodetectors that have been sensitive to v ...

  7. An Automated High Aspect Ratio Mesher for Computational Fluid Dynamics

    SBC: Ciespace Corporation            Topic: T801

    The work will focus on the 3D implementation of the Phase 1 CHARM mesher, with solution-adaptive iteration for CFD and non-CFD applications. The proposed 3D method will incorporate and extend a previously developed method of generating field-guided hexahedral elements from a metric tensor field. While the fundamental technical approach?a combination of metric tensor conditioning, metric-tracing me ...

  8. Polarization Entangled Photon Pair Source for Space-Based Quantum Communication

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: H9

    The overall goal of this NASA effort is to develop and deliver efficient, single-pass quantum optical waveguide sources generating high purity hyper-entangled photon pairs for use in high-rate long-distance links. The new devices will produce hyper-entangled photon pairs with high efficiency, pure spectral properties, and low attenuation, providing the key technology required for deployment of gr ...

  9. Reversible Adhesion Concept for In-Space Assembly

    SBC: ATSP Innovations, Inc.            Topic: Z4

    ATSP Innovations will develop a reversible adhesion concept for use in reconfigurable space frame construction. This reversible adhesion concept is based on application of aromatic thermosetting copolyester (ATSP) to selected adhesive contact points. By virtue of a class of reversible solid-state chemical reactions (called interchain transesterification reactions - ITR) intrinsic to the polymer, A ...

  10. Efficient Composite Repair Methods for Launch Vehicles

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T12

    Polymer matrix composites are increasingly replacing traditional metallic materials in NASA launch vehicles due to high strength to weight ratio, manipulative properties, and corrosion resistance. However, the inspection and repair methods for these materials are considerably more complicated. For aerospace platform repairs, a composite laminate patch must be manually fabricated on-site and then ...
