  1. Mycotoxin Adsorption with Hemocompatible Porous Polymer Beads

    SBC: CytoSorbents Medical Inc.            Topic: CBD152003

    Certain species of fungi produce mycotoxins, which can cause acute toxicity and even death in human that either have been, or potentiallycould be, used by bioterroists as weapons of mass destruction. Aflatoxin and trichothecene T-2 toxin are two mycotoxins that are of particularconcern as potential biological weapons due to their toxicity, environmental stability, easy accessibility, historical pr ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. ZnMgO Nanowire Based Detectors and Detector Arrays


    In this SBIR Program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners are developing ultraviolet (UV) photodetection devices with high sensitivity, low noise and fast response time. The technical approach is based on nanowires of the wide bandgap semiconductor ZnMgO. The resulting devices will be blind to solar radiation, and have a tunable cut-off frequency which can be adjusted by the ...

  4. Conjugate Etalon Spectral Imager (CESI) & Scanning Etalon Methane Mapper (SEMM)

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: T803

    Development of the CESI focal plane and optics technology will lead to miniaturized hyperspectral and SWIR-band spectral imaging instrumentation compatible with CubeSat and other nanosat platforms. The project will implement the technology by developing a CubeSat-compatible SEMM instrument for global mapping of atmospheric methane concentrations. Specific Phase I technical objectives include: - ...

  5. High Turndown Ratio, High Delta-Emittance, Variable Emissivity Electrochromics

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: X304

    Among thermal control methods, variable-emittance materials remain the most promising for addressing deficiencies of current systems (mechanical louvers, loop heat pipes, MEMS, electrostatics, phase change materials, others), especially, e.g., for missions in extreme light/dark environments, planetary platforms. This firm's unique, patented variable-emittance skin technology, based on conduct ...

  6. ShortWave Infrared Focal Plane Technology for Close-Range Active Mineralogy Mapping (SWIFT-CAMM)

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: T801

    We propose to develop a Photon-Counting Integrated Circuit (PCIC) detector and focal plane array (FPA) with highest sensitivity, lowest noise and hence highest signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) among all FPAs covering the shortwave infrared band, for incorporation into a prototype imaging spectroscopy CAMM instrument for real-time operation on a planetary surface to guide rover targeting, sample selecti ...

  7. Marshal: Maintaining Evolving Models

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: H601

    SIFT proposes to design and develop the Marshal system, a mixed-initiative tool for maintaining task models over the course of evolving missions. SIFT will demonstrate Marshal by developing it as a plugin for the TRACLabs PRIDE procedure authoring system. A Marshal-enabled PRIDE will learn and maintain task models so that it can improve the consistency and correctness of PRL-based procedures. Ma ...

  8. A ZigBee-Based Wireless Sensor Network for Continuous Sound and Noise Level Monitoring on the ISS

    SBC: WEVOICE, Inc.            Topic: O306

    The International Space Station (ISS) needs to keep quiet tomaintain a healthy and habitable environment in which crewmemberscan perform long-term and uninterrupted scientific researchunder microgravity conditions. Acoustic survey is now performedonce every two months using hand-held devices at 60 locationson the ISS. It takes a significant amount of precious crew timeand the sporadic monitoring p ...

  9. Superconducting Coils for Small Nuclear Fusion Rocket Engines


    This proposal focuses on the superconducting coils subsystem, a critical subsystem for the PFRC reactor and Direct Fusion Drive and other fusion and electric propulsion technologies. Our strategy for PFRC has evolved since our Phase I proposal, and we now propose a hybrid magnet approach: a combination of so-called “dry” conduction-cooled low-temperature (LTS) superconductor magnets an ...

  10. Unique Conducting Polymer-Coated, Metallized Microporous Membranes with High Electro-Osmotic Function for Chem-Bio Protection

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: CBD06105

    In prior and ongoing, unrelated work in electrochromics, this firm developed unique, thin, flexible, double-sided, metallized (Au, Pt), microporous membranes, incorporating Conducting Polymer (CPs). Expected to have very high electro-osmotic flow capacities, they are useful for active water vapor transport through CBD-protective membranes for military uses such as hardened military facilities, s ...
