The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Magnetically Enhanced Vacuum Arc Thruster

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: S302

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation has demonstrated the feasibility of a new type of electric propulsion device dubbed the Magnetically Enhanced Vacuum Arc Thruster (MVAT). This thruster is itself a variant on the Vacuum Arc Thruster that has been demonstrated via a recently concluded Phase I SBIR contracts from NASA. The VAT was verified to be a throttleable low mass (ca. 150g) high efficiency ...

  2. Heated Thermoplastic Fiber Placement Head for NASA Langley Research Center

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A404

    Reduced mass composite materials are crucial to the success of aerospace systems, but are inhibited by expensive autoclave consolidation, especially for large parts. To remedy this, NASA-LaRC has been developing cost-effective high-performance thermoplastic composite materials for years. NASA materials could dramatically reduce the cost of large aerospace structures, because those materials avo ...

  3. Grid Computing for Commercial Applications

    SBC: 3dgeo Development Inc.            Topic: N/A

    3DGeo will implement a graphical user interface (GUI) built on top of the Globus Toolkit 3.0 (GT3) middleware and complying with the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) standard. This GUI will be a convenient interface for computational resource discovery, computational resource monitoring, and workflow submission to the Grid. These features will be built into 3DGeo?s Java-based INSP system - ...

  4. Diode-Pumped Neodymium-Yttria Laser for Ozone Lidar

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this program is to develop a compact and efficient ultraviolet laser system for ozone sensing from space. The basis for this system will be a diode-pumped neodymium-yttria (Nd:Y2O3) laser which is frequency-tripled to generate uv light at either 305nm or 315nm. The ability to generate both uv wavelengths from a single frequency-tripled Nd:Y2O3 laser makes this approach potentially 4 ...

  5. Compact and efficient ultraviolet laser for astrobiology

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this program is to develop a compact and efficient ultraviolet laser for use in space-based uv-Raman instruments. The basis for this system will be a diode-pumped neodymium-yttria (Nd:Y2O3) ceramic laser which is frequency-quadrupled to generate uv light at 237nm. The unique combination of a low-cost and robust ceramic laser with efficient 4th harmonic generation will provide an ide ...

  6. Deployable Virtual Teleconferencing Meeting Center

    SBC: Adastra Labs LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is indented to lead to the development of a commercial product that can create a virtual meeting presence by displaying the remote user?s face to achieve a presence. The goal is to render computer-generated objects and visualize them as real objects for the user, thus creating augmented reality system. The first step of achieving a virtual teleconference will be to capture th ...

  7. UV Rigid Inflatable Wing

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As the unmanned exploration of Mars and Venus becomes more of a focus area at NASA, inflatable, rigidizable wings will become an enabling technology. The successful development of this type of wing will also have significant military applications in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Rigidization of inflatable wings provides several potential advantages, including reducing the vulnerability to punct ...

  8. Fiber Optic Systems for Light Curing Rigidization of Inflatable Structures

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: E201

    Light (UV and visible) curing composite matrix resins are being explored as an attractive means for rigidizing inflatable spacecraft for large space-deployed structures such as solar sails, radar and communications antennas, radiometers, and solar arrays. Light curing provides a controlled, clean, low power rigidization technology to harden these inflatable spacecraft once they have achieved the ...

  9. Cost-Effective Powder Metallurgy TiAl-Based Components For Aerospace Use

    SBC: ADVANCE MATERIALS PRODUCTS, INC            Topic: A404

    Gamma titanium aluminide (TiAl) alloys with their low density (~3.9g/cm3), good elevated temperature strength, stiffness, creep resistance and acceptable burn and oxidation resistance have excellent potential for use in high temperature aerospace applications at temperatures between 500oC to 1000oC instead of the currently used high density (~8.9g/cm3) Ni-based superalloys. However, its poor inter ...

  10. Carbon Based Aerogel Composites for Radiation Shielding

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The prime objective of this proposal is to develop a multi-functional sandwich composite material design to fulfill current needs for non-parasitic, lightweight, high-strength, thermally insulating and effective radiation shielding materials for deep space exploration applications. The phase II program will further improve and characterize the mechanical, physical and radiation protection properti ...
