  1. Wide Bandgap Nanostructured Space Photovoltaics

    SBC: Firefly Technologies            Topic: T3

    Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes an STTR program for the development of a wide-bandgap GaP-based space solar cell capable of efficient operation at temperatures above 300oC. Efficiency enhancement will be achieved by the introduction of InGaP quantum wells within the active region of the wide-gap base material. The introduction of these nanoscale features ...

  2. Nanowire Photovoltaic Devices

    SBC: Firefly Technologies            Topic: T3

    Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes an STTR program for the development of a space solar cell having record efficiency exceeding 40% (AM0) by the introduction of nanowires within the active region of the current limiting sub-cell. The introduction of these nanoscale features will enable realization of an intermediate band solar cell (IBSC), while simultaneous ...

  3. Local Navigation in GNSS and Magnetometer-Denied Environments

    SBC: PRIORIA ROBOTICS HOLDINGS, INC.            Topic: T501

    The proposed solution exploits recent advances in computer vision to conceive of a single-camera + gyro + accelerometer vision-based navigation solution such that the processing will be lightweight (requiring only a single optical flow sample per frame). Known landmarks (natural or artificial) will have absolute positions known to planetary exploration worker robots. The worker robot can identif ...

  4. High Performance Multiphase Combustion Tool Using Level Set-Based Primary Atomization Coupled with Flamelet Models

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: T101

    The innovative methodologies proposed in this STTR Phase 1 project will enhance Loci-STREAM which is a high performance, high fidelity simulation tool already being used at NASA for a variety of CFD applications. This project will address critical needs in order to enable fast and accurate simulations of liquid space propulsion systems (using propellants such as LOX, LCH4, RP-1, LH2, etc.). The pr ...

  5. Power Generating Coverings and Casings

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: T301

    Advances in structured heterogeneity together with nanomaterials tailoring has made it possible to create thermoelectrics using high temperature, polymer composites. While such thermoelectrics do not have the capability to approach the efficiency of top performing ceramic modules such as BiTe, they do provide two unique aspects of use in energy scavenging: the ability to cover large areas easily, ...

  7. High Power High Thrust Ion Thruster (HPHTion): 50 CM Ion Thruster for Near-Earth Applications

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: T301

    Advances in high power, photovoltaic technology has enabled the possibility of reasonably sized, high specific power, high power, solar arrays. New thin film solar arrays have demonstrated specific powers of over 4000 W/kg (exceeding the current SOA of ~130 W/kg). At high specific powers, power levels ranging from 50 to several hundred kW are feasible for communication satellites. Coupled with ...

  8. Innovative Solid State Lighting Replacements for Industrial and Test Facility Locations

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: T1002

    The proposed innovation is the replacement of existing test stand and parking lot fixtures with current SSL LED technology. The replacement fixtures will reduce energy consumption, generate less heat and provide maintenance free operation for over 50,000 hours. An explosion-proof fixture is capable of containing an internal combustion event without allowing flames or hot gasses to escape to the s ...

  9. Time-Domain Terahertz Reflection Holograhic Tomography Nondestructive Evaluation System

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: T701

    We propose to demonstrate key elements of feasibility for a single-sided time-domain terahertz reflection holographic tomographic imaging (TD-THz RHT) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system which will provide high quality three dimensional images of the interior of complex aerospace composite structures. Time-domain terahertz imaging in the 0.1 to 3 THz spectral range is currently being used to c ...

  10. Microchannel Thermo Catalytic Ignition for Advanced Mono- and Bipropellants

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: T301

    Small and micro-spacecrafts require the efficient, micro-propulsion systems. Chemical micro-propulsion is best suited for use as primary thrust, orbital insertion and attitude control because of its high energy density. When grouped into arrays for larger thrust applications, micro-propulsion devices provide high propulsive flexibility or can be used as igniters. The proposed effort will focus ...
