  1. Extended Release of Pyridostigmine Bromide for Effectively Combating Nerve Agent Exposure

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: CBD181004

    Chemical warfare agents such as the lethal nerve agent soman are a major source of risk to military personnel. Currently, pyridostigminebromide (PB) is the only FDA-approved pretreatment to counteract the effects of soman. The rationale behind PB administration is that it actsas a temporary inhibitor of AChE. This precludes nerve agents from irreversible inactivation of AChE, thereby mitigating th ...

  3. A Pulsed Nonlinear Raman Detection of Trace Organics with SERS Enhanced Sensitivity

    SBC: Crystal Research, Inc.            Topic: S106

    A significant technology gap for NASA astrobiology missions is the field detection of organics at the sub ppm level. Currently, NASA uses different sensing technologies such as Pyrolysis–GCMS to analyze planetary samples. These instruments require complex sample handling and can process only a limited number of samples. It is critical to develop an effective instrument with extended and enh ...

  4. Hybrid-Electric Rotorcraft Tool Development, Propulsion System Trade Space Exploration, and Demonstrator Conceptual Design

    SBC: Empirical Systems Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: A306

    Hybrid-electric propulsion is becoming widely accepted as a potential disruptive technology for aircraft that can provide significant reduction in fuel consumption as well as many other benefits. The majority of the analysis tools that exist today, however, do not harness the capability to analyze these unique systems, especially in the rotorcraft realm. The Phase I effort focused mainly on the de ...

  5. High Heat Flux Block Ablator-in-Honeycomb Heat Shield Using Ablator/Aerogel-Filled Foam, Phase II

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: H701

    Ultramet and ARA Ablatives Laboratory previously developed and demonstrated foam-reinforced carbon/phenolic ablators that offer substantially increased high heat flux performance and reduced weight relative to conventional ablators. The structure consisted of an ablator-filled foam front surface backed by Ultramet's highly insulating aerogel-filled foam. Arcjet testing was performed at NASA ARC to ...

  6. Pneubotics- Membrane-Based Robotics for Remote Material Handling

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: H2001

    We have invented a new class of robotics, called `Pneubotics', that rival current manipulators in payload and reach at 1/10th the weight. Our technology leverages insights into lightweight materials and mass manufacturing to create robots that derive power, structure, and movement from pressurized air. As a result, drive trains, motors, bearings, shafts, sliding surfaces, and excess structural mat ...

  8. Multi Wavelength Greenhouse gas LIDAR (MUGGLE)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: S108

    Climate change is a growing concern, leading NASA to the need to track concentrations of such greenhouse gases as CO2 and CH4, including the need to detect them daytime, nighttime, and all year. To achieve this, NASA has proposed such projects as Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM), Geostationary Coastal and Air Pollution Events (GEO-CAPE), and Active Sensing of CO2 Emissions over Nights, Days ...

  10. Radiation Tolerant Integrated Attitude Determination and Control (uADCS) System

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: Z401

    Space Micro and Maryland Aerospace propose a novel Attitude Determination and Control Product for long life, high reliability cubesat missions in severe radiation environments. The uADCS concept proposed will achieve 0.05deg pointing control accuracy for a 3U cubesat. The technology is scalable to larger satellites in a modular configuration. Key innovations include a hybrid optical assembly, a ...
