The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

  1. Interactive Tool for Modeling Multiple Solar Eruptions


    Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are huge explosions that propel plasma and magnetic field away from the Sun and are the primary cause of major geomagnetic storms. Predicting in advance whether observed CMEs will hit the Earth and carry geo-effective magnetic fields is a long-term priority for the CCMC, located at NASA GSFC, as well as other groups within and outside of NASA. Such predictions are ext ...

  2. Requirements Management with Bidirectional Traceability in Modern Version Control Systems

    SBC: XWING, INC.            Topic: A2

    This SBIR addresses the need for robust airborne software design processes that are scalable, efficient, and low-cost to ensure safety features and design assurance for unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and manned aircraft. Xwingrsquo;s proposed tool (Tracer) manages software requirements and traceability at all levels; from the system-level objectives and use cases to the software requirements, corre ...

  3. An Airborne Continuous Flow Diffusion Chamber for Measuring Ice Nucleating Particles

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: S1

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding climate and environmental change, a NASA objective. The formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles (INP), and has major implications for precipitation and cloud properties. Observational capabilities are required to advance understanding o ...

  4. 4.3 GHz Passive Wireless Sensor System

    SBC: Pegasense, LLC            Topic: Z11

    The purpose of this Phase II proposal is development of a completely operational 4.3 GHz passive sensor system that will be compliant in the newnbsp;Wireless Avionics Intra-Communications (WAIC) band.nbsp;nbsp;This band will be useful to both space and aerospace, and the center frequency significantly advances SAW sensor device capabilities to very high frequencies.nbsp;nbsp;The focus of the effor ...

  5. Silicon Carbide Grid Supports for X-Ray Telescopes

    SBC: Lairson, Bruce            Topic: S1

    PhotonFoils will develop single crystal silicon carbide grids and membranes for X-ray telescopes and laboratory instruments. SiC grids are needed for microcalorimeter shields onnbsp;Lynx, which cannot meet design requirements with existing grid materials. SiC grids can also also improve the signal stability of cooled imaging X-ray detectors, such as Lynx HDXI and Axis, by reducing contaminant accu ...

  6. Solid-State, Electrochemical Micro-Sensors for Atmospheric Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide Measurements at the Surface of Venus

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: S1

    Makel Engineering, Inc. (MEI) proposes to develop high temperature, solid state sensors to monitor carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen (N2) in the Venus atmosphere.nbsp; A harsh environment chemical sensor array suitable for measuring key trace species in the Venus atmosphere has been developed by MEI under a recent SBIR program. Currently there are no demonstrated chemical microsensors suitable to ...

  7. Packaging and Manufacturing Processes to Enable Production of Very Large Solar Sails for Next Generation Missions

    SBC: Nexolve Holding Company, LLC            Topic: Z10

    The experience of building the NEA Scout solar Sail resulted in the realization that new manufacturing technology would be required to build solar sails significantly larger than NEA Scout. During Phase I, NeXolve successfully developed and demonstrated fab and fold processes and scalable-modular pathfinder mechanisms that can be fully developed to support fabrication and packaging of larger solar ...

  8. Probabilistic/Reliability Software Tool for Ceramic Matrix Composite/Environmental Barrier Coating Interface Modeling

    SBC: N&R ENGNERING MGT SUPPORT SVCS            Topic: A1

    One potential way to achieve N+3 goals is the introduction of ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials into turbine engines. The introduction of CMC vanes and/or blades into turbine engines lead to gains in specific fuel consumption (SFC) by allowing higher operating temperatures, reductions in required cooling, and reductions in vehicle weight. Thermal barrier and environmental barrier coatings ( ...

  9. High-Resolution Source Characterization and Modeling for Efficient Prediction of Propulsion-Airframe Aeroacoustics

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: A1

    Community noise reduction is a critical focus of NASA ARMD, which is studying highly integrated airframe/propulsion systems such as the hybrid wing body (HWB) and the quiet supersonic technology (QueSST) demonstrator. Relative to conventional aircraft, these systems have closer coupling between sound generation and propagation, creating challenges for noise prediction but also opportunities for sh ...

  10. Plume-Surface Interaction in Rarefied Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: Z7

    Significant risks result from the plume-surface interaction during propulsive landings on unprepared regolith in extra-terrestrial environments. Dust and debris particles are liberated and may strike the landing vehicle and surrounding assets and may obscure ground observation for safe landing. In addition, craters are formed on the landing surface, posing an additional challenge to vehicle stabil ...
