  2. Lightweight High Energy Density Capacitors for NASA AMPS and PPUs

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: S3

    All NASA Power Processing Units (PPUs) including DC to DC and DC to AC converters and inverters require a DC-link capacitor, placed between the DC source (PV solar array or battery) and the switching power semiconductors.  NASA technical personnel has identified a failure mode in Multi-Layer Ceramic (MLC) DC-link capacitors currently used in PPUs that can cause them to short.   Poly ...

  3. Electromagnetic Characterization of Advanced Composites by Voxel-Based Inverse Methods

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: Z11

    The nondestructivecharacterization of advanced composites, such ascarbon-fiber reinforced polymers (cfrp), by electromagnetic means iswell established [6]-[24].  What isneeded to advance the state of the art are sophisticated inversionalgorithms that allow layup and impact damage to be determined inlocalized regions, which means that the more traditional methods ofmodel-based inverse methods ...

  4. 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 manipu ...

  5. 1.57 Micron High Pulse Energy Single Frequency Fiber Laser

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S1

    We propose to demonstrate and build a 1.572 micron single frequency high pulse energy and high peak power fiber laser by using an innovative Er-doped gain fiber with large core diameter and high gain per unit length. 1.572 micron single frequency high energy and high peak power fiber laser is needed for accurately measuring column CO2 concentrations. In Phase II, we will optimize the doping concen ...

  8. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  9. HQ-55 VTOL UAS for Ship Based Operation

    SBC: Latitude Engineering, LLC            Topic: 832

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The Hybrid Quadrotor concept, developed by Latitude Engineering, combines the high power density of electric motors and propellers with the high energy density of a piston engine and liquid fuel. Together, each technology enables maximum performance in HQ's two regimes of flight: the electric system is responsible for lift while hovering (high power, short endurance), and the g ...

  10. High-Efficiency Radiation-Hard Solar Array Interface to Spacecraft Power System

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF162007

    The Phase II SAI prototype will be developed using COTS GaN switches and CMOS drivers. During Phase II Alphacore will design and fabricate a rad-hard CMOS driver ASIC to provide electrical and on-chip algorithmic control of the GaN switches. The SAI and its components will be tested and measured under varying environmental conditions, including across temperature and radiation extremes. The GaN de ...
