  2. Integrated Sensors for the Evaluation of Structural Integrity of Inflatable Habitats

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: T1203

    Inflatable pressurized habitats are envisioned as a practical way to build shelters much larger than landing craft for astronauts and their scientific operations on Mars, the moon and elsewhere. These habitats maintain their inflated shape via high-strength Vectran webbing. The piezoresistive extensometers developed through this STTR program can be directly integrated into or onto Vectran webbing ...

  3. Development of the Integrated Water Recovery Assembly (IRA) for Recycling Habitation Wastewater

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: T603

    Paragon Space Development Corporation and our partner Research Institution Texas Tech University (TTU) propose to continue development of a spacecraft habitat wastewater recycling system that integrates 1) a TTU Membrane Aerated Biological Reactor (MABR), 2) Nafion Membrane Water Purification (NWP) distillation technology, and 3) gas-phase trace contaminant removal (GTCR) to realize a low-mass, lo ...

  4. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Usedfor Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: CBD171001

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as IR and LWIR detectors and sensors. In our approach, the cooling fibersegment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NPPhotonics' high efficiency fiber lasers are used to pump high purity doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action ...

  5. High Performance Image Processing Algorithms for Current and Future Mastcam Imagers

    SBC: APPLIED RESEARCH LLC            Topic: T801

    In this project, Applied Research LLC (ARLLC), the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK), and the Arizona State University (ASU) propose high performance image processing algorithms that will support current and future Mastcam imagers. The algorithms fuse the acquired Mastcam stereo images at different wavelengths to generate multispectral image cubes, which can then be used for high quality vi ...

  6. Development of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Arrays For Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13105

    We propose to develop low cost extended range Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) using Colloidal Quantum Dots (CQDs) technology. We have successfully produced a SWIR FPA camera with a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a sensitivity from 0.4 mm to 1.7 mm at room temperature. Our first initiative will be to extend the operational wavelength range to 2.5 mm, and then 3.0 mm. We hav ...

  7. Open-Path Spatial Ring Down Spectrometer for Chemical Vapor Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop an open-path spatial ringdown spectrometer (OP-SRS) for the detection and quantification of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This approach enables sensitive and selective detection of the chemicals of interest over a broad dynamic range down to the 10 minute negligible military exposure guideline (MEG) level. Thi ...

  8. Self-Detoxifying Textiles

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD161001

    Luna Innovations is addressing the need to develop novel fluid repellent textile treatments for military uniforms that will activelydecontaminate chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWA). There have been recent significant advances in textile treatments that havedemonstrated water, oil and chemical agent resistance that are superior to Quarpel repellent treatments currently used on protective ...

  9. A Fully Automated Mesh Generation Tool

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: A105

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop a fully automated mesh generation tool which contains two parts: surface mesh generation from the imported Computer Aided Design (CAD) models and volume mesh generation from the generated surface mesh. It is well known that CAD geometry models constructed for manufacturing purposes are generally not directly useable by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD ...

  10. A Combined Health Estimation and Active Balancing Electronic System for the Life Enhancement of Batteries in Hybrid and/or All-Electric Propulsion Systems

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A201

    NASA seeks intelligent monitoring for hybrid and/or all electric propulsion systems, and methods to significantly extend the life of electric aircraft propulsion energy sources and their safety. Active balancing is an attractive technique that can be used to increase battery pack life. If performed efficiently and accurately, active balancing can translate into longer battery life and more efficie ...
