  2. A High Performance Cathode Heater for Hall Thrusters

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S304

    High current hollow cathodes are the baseline electron source for next generation high power Hall thrusters. Currently for electron sources providing current levels >50 A and cathodes utilizing LaB6 emitters, the only viable, long life heater technology is a low reliability, low producibility, multi-element heater constructed from MgO insulated coaxial heater cable. In the Phase I project we wil ...

  5. A Reliable Electronic Package for Space Exploration

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: X103

    The proposed program will develop an hermetic, CTE matched, thermal shock resistant ceramic packaging technology that will facilitate the operation of Si and SiGe devices at extreme temperatures (-230ºC to 130ºC) encountered on the Moon and Mars. Processes to assemble the components into a hermetically sealed package will be identified and developed. Process and materials capability will be de ...

  6. Acoustic Igniter

    SBC: Orion Propulsion, Inc.            Topic: X903

    An acoustic igniter eliminates the need to use electrical energy to drive spark systems to initiate combustion in liquid-propellant rockets. It does not involve the use of catalysts (which have a limited life), it does not exhibit typical wear and tear as seen in spark and catalytic igniters, and it is simple in design with no moving parts. Orion's proposed Acoustic Igniter is expected to offer a ...

  7. Advanced Nongray Radiation Module in the LOCI Framework for Combustion CFD

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T802

    Radiative heat fluxes are important in the design of launch vehicles for Project Constellation. In this Phase II STTR, CFDRC and its partner Mississippi State University will develop an innovative, comprehensive, high fidelity radiation module in the LOCI CFD framework that will enable NASA to design/analyze heat transfer challenges that include radiation. In Phase I, CFDRC/MSU successfully demo ...

    STTR Phase II 2007 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. Aeroservoelastic Modeling

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A204

    CFDRC proposes to develop, validate and demonstrate a comprehensive aeroservoelastic analysis framework for aerospace vehicles by enabling coupled interactions between multi-physics simulation modules with variable fidelity for flexible structures, aerodynamics, flight dynamics, and embedded smart materials. In Phase I, a nonlinear electrodynamics finite-element model for smart materials, capable ...

    SBIR Phase I 2008 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. All-Fiber Components for Micro-Structured Fibers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: S101

    We propose new concepts for developing components for high performance space based Lidar systems. While it is generally recognized that photonic crystal fiber technology can extend the performance range of fiber laser based sources these fibers are considered by many to be incompatible with complementary component technology such as fused couplers and pump combiners. Integration of these fibers i ...

  10. An On-Chip Nano-Plasmonics Based Urine Protein Assay Cartridge

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T302

    Long-term exposure to microgravity and radiation during space exploration can pose a critical threat to the health of a flight crew. Real-time monitoring of urine protein levels is an effective way to follow the onset and progress of many diseases and guide the prompt selection of proper therapy. The success of such diagnostic tasks, which is strongly desired for flight missions, critically depend ...
