  1. Hall Effect Thruster for High Power Solar Electric Propulsion Technology Demonstration

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: E101

    In Phase I Busek matured the design of an existing 15-kW laboratory thruster. Magnetic modeling was performed to generate a circuit incorporating magnetic shielding. Erosion modeling predicts extremely long lifetime and high throughput. A detailed mechanical design of the thruster resulted in an overall assembly with specific mass

  2. LunarCube for Deep Space Missions

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: Z2001

    Busek, in partnership with Morehead State University (MSU), proposes to develop a versatile 6U CubeSat capable of reaching a lunar orbit from GEO. The primary objective of the Phase II effort is to demonstrate a complete, mini ion propulsion system that provides ~3000sec Isp heretofore unavailable to CubeSats, with a solid-storable iodine propellant. This type of propulsion technology would be a ...

  3. Drag Identification & Reduction Technology (DIRECT) for Elastically Shaped Air Vehicles

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A304

    The Variable Camber Continuous Trailing Edge Flap (VCCTEF) concept offers potential improvements in the aerodynamic efficiency of aircraft through real time wing shaping. NASA and Boeing have been studying the suitability of this concept to address the drag reduction problem in aircraft with reduced-stiffness wings. However, reduced stiffness may lead to wing flutter. In addition, displacements of ...

  4. New methods of In-Situ Metrology and Process Control for EBF3 Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: COSM Advanced Manufacturing Systems, LLC            Topic: H501

    The proposed innovation is a methodology for advanced process control and deposition analysis built around using signals generated by beam-component interactions in the Electron Beam Free Form Fabrication (EBF3) system. Based upon our successful Phase I results, hese signals have the potential to be used for many forms of both metrology and process control. While many material properties might be ...

  5. Smartphone Application for Mask Sizing and Projecting Quantitative Fit

    SBC: Technology Solutions Experts, Inc.            Topic: CBD161005

    Identifying the correct size of a full facepiece respirator for an individual requires a significant degree of skill. Furthermore, the fit assessment procedure is time consuming due to the series of tasks required to calculate the fit factor, a measure of the quality of fit. The Chemical and Biological Defense (CBD) program needs a quicker, less manually intensive, and more reliable method to sele ...

  6. Automated Visual Anthropometry for Three-dimensional Assessment of Respirators (AVATAR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: CBD161005

    Military respirator masks provide the Warfighter with life critical protection against chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN)threats. To ensure the safety, comfort, and effectiveness of the American Warfighter, it is essential that every Warfighter be assigned arespirator that is properly sized and fitted. However, current methods for sizing and fitting respirators depend on manual ...

  7. Enhancing the Pharmacokinetic Profile of Protein-based Drugs

    SBC: Extend Biosciences Inc.            Topic: CBD12101

    Many protein-based drugs have limited efficacy due to a short half-life or require intravenous delivery because of low bioavailability. Extend Biosciences is developing proprietary carrier molecules that allow proteins to access an intrinsic transport pathway for efficient delivery to the vascular space and then maintain a sustained presence in circulation. This novel technology would be of partic ...

  8. Self-Healing Shape Memory Polymer Based Coatings for Protective Garments (1001-966)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD13110

    In this Phase II program we will build on the promising Phase I results and further develop, optimize and integrate self-healing coatings/membranes into Chemical/Biological (CB) protective clothing to enable autonomous and rapid self-healing of cuts/tears/punctures and provide continuous protection to the warfighters. Current CB garment systems use a layer of absorptive carbon or selectively perm ...

  9. Lightweight Small-Scale Turbine Generator

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: A305

    The proposed innovation is a power conversion technology that will help achieve NASA's Fundamental Aeronautics Program (FAP) goals of reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency for high speed flight. NASA's objective to increase the specific power of high efficiency electric components in order to make a 10 mega-watt onboard power generation and/or utilization feasible for propulsion requi ...

  10. Rapid Detection System for Decontaminated Bacillus Thuringiensis Al Hakam Spore Strips

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD11101

    Biological agents pose high threats, because they are invisible and odorless and a relatively small amount can infect a large population when released in a densely populated area. For the same reasons, assuring safety after cleaning decontaminated sites c
