  1. Recession-Tolerant Heat Flux Sensors for Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: H701

    The Phase I project will develop a suite of diagnostic sensors using Direct Write technology to measure temperature, surface recession depth, and heat flux of an ablative thermal protection system (TPS) in real time, which can be integrated to support TPS evaluation and in-situ diagnostics during planetary entry. Standalone heat flux sensors and those fabricated by direct deposition will be devel ...

  2. Zero G Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: E103

    The Zero G Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD) will provide the ability to quantify the mass of objects up to 2,000 grams, including live animal specimens in a zero G environment, an innovative because there currently are no such devices available to perform mass measurement of smaller masses (<2000 grams) in space. At present there are no tools on board the International Space Station (ISS) to mea ...

  3. Low-Cost Manufacturing Technique for Advanced Regenerative Cooling for In-Space Cryogenic Engines

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: H202

    The goal of the proposed effort is to demonstrate feasibility of using selective laser melting (SLM, an emerging manufacturing technique) to manufacture a subscale combustion chamber liner that features an advanced regenerative cooling technique that combines high performance with low pressure drop. SLM enables the ability to "print" the advanced regenerative liner in mere hours, despit ...

  4. Integrated Composite Rocket Nozzle Extension

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: H202

    ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate an Integrated Composite Rocket Nozzle Extension (ICRNE) for use in rocket thrust chambers. The ICRNE will utilize an innovative bonding approach to join a high-temperature composite nozzle extension to a regeneratively cooled metallic nozzle. The ICRNE technology will allow high-temperature composite materials to be directly integrated into a regenerativ ...

  5. Acoustic Resonance Reaction Control Thruster (ARCTIC)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: H202

    ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate the innovative Acoustic Resonance Reaction Control Thruster (ARCTIC) to provide rapid and reliable in-space impulse without the use of toxic hypergols, delicate catalyst beds, or cumbersome spark systems. The ARCTIC thruster will exceed current reliability standards, reduce RCS complexity, and provide system-level benefits by minimizing weight, decreasin ...

  6. Advanced Nanostructured Cathode for Ultra High Specific Energy Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: H802

    Integrate advanced nanotechnology with energy storage technology to develop advanced cathode materials for use in Li-ion batteries while maintaining a high level of safety, stability, and cycle life, allowing the cathodes to be tailored to provide very high specific energy or very high specific power depending on the relative ratio of the three components-active material, current conductors/collec ...

  7. Design and Development of a Compact and Rugged Phase and Fluorescence Microscope for Space Utilization

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: E103

    In this SBIR Phase 1 we propose to develop a novel microscope by integrating Fourier phase contrast microscopy (FPCM) and epi-fluorescence microscopy. In FPCM, the high degree coherence of low power laser source provides well resolved spatial frequency bands in the Fourier plane and the retardation is generated by photo-thermally induced phase transitions in a liquid crystal by varying the intens ...

  8. Cryocooler With Cold Compressor for Deep Space Applications

    SBC: Madison CryoGroup LLC            Topic: S106

    The unique built-in design features of the proposed mini pulse tube cryocooler avoid all thermal expansion issues enabling it to operate within a cold, 150 K environment. As such, the cooler addresses the need to prevent boiloff of cryogenic propellants on long duration remote missions.Due to its high heat capacity regenerator matrix, the cooler has a high efficiency and a small footprint, making ...

  10. RadFlexPro

    SBC: Final Frontier Design, LLC            Topic: H401

    Our proposed multilayered, flexible, graded Z radiation shielding, RadFlexPro, provides radiation protection for astronauts in EVA for NASA's future space missions. RadFlexPro can be integrated into current space suit TMG designs and act as multifunctional layers, providing additional protection from micrometeoroids. Current RadFlexPro designs have three layers. The outer layer serves as a ...
