  1. Space Evaporator Absorber Radiator for Life Support and Thermal Control Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H2002

    Future human space exploration missions will require advanced life support technology that can operate across a wide range of applications and environments. Thermal control systems for space suits and spacecraft will need to meet critical requirements for water conservation and adaptability to highly variable thermal environments. To achieve these goals, we propose an International Space Station ...

  2. Building a Rice Decision Support System to Support Global Food Security and Commodity Markets

    SBC: APPLIED GEOSOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: S502

    Agriculture faces major challenges in the decades to come due to increasing resource pressures, severe weather and climate change, population growth and shifting diets, and economic development. Rice is one of the most important crops globally considering its role in the Earth system, food security, and providing livelihoods with more than 1 billion people depending on rice. Tools and systems that ...

  3. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic air gaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare proposes to develop a hermetic garment closure system that seals macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and pro ...

  4. A Turbo-Brayton Cryocooler for Aircraft Superconducting Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A201

    Hybrid turboelectric aircraft with gas turbines driving electric generators connected to electric propulsion motors have the potential to transform the aircraft design space by decoupling power generation from propulsion. Resulting aircraft designs such as blended-wing bodies with distributed propulsion can provide the large reductions in emissions, fuel burn, and noise required to make air trans ...

  5. An Ultra Low Power Cryo-Refrigerator for Space

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S107

    Future NASA Space Science Missions will incorporate detectors, sensors, shields, and telescopes that must be cooled to cryogenic temperatures. An enabling technology for these missions is advanced cryocoolers that can provide continuous and distributed cooling with minimal input power. On this program, Creare proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative cryocooler that produces refrigeratio ...

  6. ANSIBLE: A Network of Social Interactions for Bilateral Life Enhancement

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: H1203

    Studies in ground-based analogs of Isolated and Confined Environments (ICE) have identified sensory monotony and social isolation as threats to crew psychological well-being. Further, the lack of real-time communications in future missions will impact crew interactions with their support systems, i.e. family, friends, and colleagues, are critical. ANSIBLE (A Network of Social Interactions for Bi ...

  7. Dualband MW/LW Strained Layer Superlattice Focal Plane Arrays for Satellite-Based Wildfire Detection

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: S103

    Infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) based on Type-II strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes have recently experienced significant advances. In Phase I we developed and delivered to NASA a 320x256 DUALBAND FPA integrated in a dewar cooler assembly (IDCA) that produces simultaneous and spatially-registered imagery in two spectral bands, namely, a fire channel in the 3-5 micron window and a the ...

  8. Lightweight, Reliable Cryogenic Screen Channel Acquisition Devices with High Expulsion Efficiency

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: Z10

    Refueling spacecraft in space offers tremendous benefits for increased spacecraft payload capacity and reduced launch cost. However, in a microgravity environment, acquiring vapor-free cryogenic liquid propellants from supply tanks and then transferring them to receiving tanks is very challenging. To address this challenge, Creare developed a robust, lightweight hybrid Liquid Acquisition Device (L ...

  9. High Efficiency 4 K Cryocooler for Space Missions

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S1

    Future astrophysics missions require efficient, low-temperature cryocoolers to cool advanced instruments or serve as the upper-stage cooler for sub-Kelvin refrigerators. Potential astrophysics missions include Lynx, the Origins Space Telescope, and the Superconducting Gravity Gradiometer. Cooling loads for these missions are up to 300 mW at temperatures of 4 to 10 K, with additional loads at highe ...

  10. Turbo-Brayton Power Converter for Spaceflight Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: H803

    Future NASA space missions require advanced systems to convert thermal energy into electric power. These systems must be reliable, efficient, and lightweight. In response, we propose to develop a turbo-Brayton power converter with high efficiency and specific power. The converter will use gas bearings to provide reliable, maintenance-free, long-life operation. It will also consist of discrete ...
