  1. Compact, Regenerable, Low Power Adsorber for Spacesuit CO2, Humidity, and Trace Contaminant Control

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: T601

    Current approaches planned for space suit atmosphere revitalization (AR) are neither compatible with each other nor regenerable in space, and have a high life cycle operating cost associated with them. The proposed PCI innovation in collaboration with University of Hartford involves synthesizing improved sorbents on high surface area supports tailored for CO2, water and trace contaminant removal. ...

  2. Hydrogen-Based Energy Conservation System

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: T1002

    NASA and many others often rely on delivery of cryogenic hydrogen to meet their facility needs. NASA's Stennis Space Center is one of the largest users of hydrogen, with the LH2 used as a fuel for cryogenic rocket engine testing. Other NASA centers including Kennedy Space Center, which utilizes hydrogen to support space shuttle launches, and many industrial locations also use significant am ...

  3. Ionomer-membrane Water Processor System Design and EDU Demonstration

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X301

    a. Paragon Space Development Corporation¿ (Paragon) proposes to continue our investigation into the use of microporous-ionomer membrane technology to improve the robustness and effectiveness and simplify water recovery processes for space applications. Improved robustness and effectiveness will be evident through (1) reduced loading onthe downstream post processor due to the ionomer¿s unique pr ...

  4. Automation for Vehicle and Crew Operations

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X601

    Space missions are immensely costly endeavor – fault free function of the hardware and software used therein are highly critical to mission success. Being highly complex, manual intervention in operation, troubleshooting, and health management related areas are labor intensive and time consuming. On top of that with time the complexities of the systems are increasing, and the performance and avai ...

  5. Optoelectronic Infrastructure for RF/Optical Phased Arrays

    SBC: ODIS , Inc.            Topic: O101

    Optoelectronic integrated circuits offer radiation-hard solutions for satellite systems with much improved SWPB (size, weight, power and bandwidth). The phased array for sensing and data transfer is one system that optoelectronics can impact in the near term. It is known that optical delay could enable optimum beam steering electronic scanning . Lidar is another sensing system using optical beams ...

  6. Advanced Passive Liquid Feed PEM Electrolyzer

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: X801

    Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) water electrolyzers have undergone continuous development for the generation of oxygen and hydrogen for commercial, military and space applications since the 1970's. Unfortunately, conventional technology developed over this time period has required a complex balance of plant that adds to the overall weight of the system package. Research in the past two decades resu ...

  7. 6 CFM Electrochemical Hydrogen Pump and Compressor

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: X102

    Hydrogen is an essential resource for space missions. NASA has a need for equipment to generate, handle and store hydrogen. In terms of handling hydrogen, conventional rotating mechanical pumps and compressors require extensive modification and have limited reliability. Electrochemical pumping and compression of hydrogen occurs without any moving parts and is highly reliable and efficient. Sustain ...
