  1. Green, Compact Hybrids for Nanosatellite Launchers

    SBC: Terves Inc.            Topic: T101

    Low cost access to space is essential for continued commercial exploitation of near-earth environments, and to support future science missions. A serious limitation on the cost of space access is the available propellants and propulsion system technologies for launch, orbital insertion, maneuvering and orbital reinsertion, and reaction and attitude control.This Phase I STTR program will validate i ...

  2. Real-Time Geometric Analysis of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: T1204

    Current selective laser melting additive manufacturing (AM) systems do not have adequate process control features for wide-spread adoption across NASA. In this project Mound Laser & Photonics Center (MLPC) will work with Wright State University (WSU) to implement a novel system for layer-by-layer in-process monitoring for AM. The key innovation in this work will be the use of a line-laser profil ...

  3. Integration of Fast Predictive Model and SLM Process Development Chamber

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: T1204

    This STTR project seeks to develop a fast predictive model for selective laser melting (SLM) processes and then integrate that model with an SLM chamber that allows full control of process variables and is equipped with in-process sensors. The combination will create a closed loop in which the model suggests process parameter settings for test builds and the sensors provide feedback to the model. ...

  4. STTR Phase I: Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Multiple Field Freeform Microlens Arrays for Ultra-Low Cost Medical Endoscopy

    SBC: Ohio Surgical Optics, LLC            Topic: MN

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project is that smaller and less expensive medical endoscopes will be made possible, which will allow physicians to see better inside the human body. These devices will shorten recovery times, improve diagnosis and treatment, move procedures from operating rooms to exam rooms, and lower healt ...

  5. STTR Phase I: New dwarfing genes to improve yield and abiotic stress tolerance in wheat

    SBC: Gene shifters, LLC            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is the improvement of wheat yields by introducing newly identified dwarfing genes. The currently used dwarfing genes, which were instrumental in bringing about the "green revolution", are at least partly responsible for this bottleneck. These dwarfing genes, present in more than 90% of the wheat varie ...

  6. A Waveguide Based, High Power Pockels Cell Modulator for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Slicing

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    The Goal of this STTR is to develop a high speed, high power, waveguide based modulator (phase and amplitude) and investigate its use as a pulse slicer. The key innovation in this effort is the use of potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) waveguides making the high power, polarization based waveguide amplitude modulator possible. Furthermore because it is fabricated in KTP, the waveguide component w ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Aeroelastic/Aeroservoelastic Uncertainty and Reliability of Advanced Aerospace Vehicles in Flight and Ground Operations

    SBC: SDI Engineering Inc            Topic: T201

    ASSURE - Aeroelastic / Aeroservoelastic (AE/ASE) Uncertainty and Reliability Engineering capability - is a set of probabilistic computer programs for isolating uncertainties in simulation, manufacturing, test, measurement, and test to analysis correlation affecting the AE/ASE characteristics of advanced flight vehicles in flight and on the ground, and for studying the effects of such uncertainties ...

  9. Gaseous Helium Reclamation at Rocket Test Systems

    SBC: Sierra Lobo, Inc.            Topic: T1001

    The ability to restore large amounts of vented gaseous helium (GHe) at rocket test sites preserves the GHe and reduces operating cost. The used GHe is vented into the atmosphere, is non-recoverable, and costs NASA millions dollars per year. Helium, which is non-renewable and irreplaceable once released into the atmosphere, is continuously consumed by rocket test facilities at NASA centers such a ...

  10. A Compact, Waveguide Based Programmable Optical Comb Generator

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    This NASA Phase I STTR effort will establish the feasibility of developing a compact broadband near to mid-IR programmable optical comb for use in laser based remote sensing and communications. The comb generator will use a waveguide-based optical parametric gain block technology that can have ultra wideband (>250nm) operation with very high gain (>25dB) in a very compact footprint. This approach ...
