  1. Polymer Matrix Composite Materials for Lightning Strike Mitigation

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: A201

    In this phase I SBIR program, a team led by Advanced Ceramics Research Inc. (ACR) propose a novel, low-cost manufacturing process for multi-functional polymer composite components with improved lightning strike mitigation and EMI shielding capabilities. The proposed program will develop and demonstrate a process for manufacturing complex-geometry composite parts with tailored lightning strike miti ...

  2. Scaled Model Technology for Flight Research of General Aviation Aircraft

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: T701

    Our proposed future Phase II activities are aimed at developing a scientifically based "tool box" for flight research using scaled models. These tools will be of great use for GA companies in the design, development, and FAA approval of future general aviation (GA) aircraft, in particular also when novel technologies such as active flow control, circulation control, etc. are being considered. We w ...

  3. Gas-Kinetic Navier-Stokes Solver for Hypersonic Flows in Thermal and Chemical Non-Equilibrium

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: A206

    This SBIR project proposes to develop a gas-kinetic Navier-Stokes solver for simulation of hypersonic flows in thermal and chemical non-equilibrium. The Navier-Stokes solvers adopted in current hypersonic CFD codes like LAURA and GASP use Riemann solver for the convection part and central scheme for the diffusion part. As a result, their integration with DSMC in the transitional and rarefied flow ...

  4. Portable, Solid-State Light Sources for Field Radiometric Calibrations

    SBC: HOBI Labs, Inc.            Topic: S603

    Various Earth Science fields require well-calibrated field radiometers whose calibrations must be tracked and verified in the field. NASA has long recognized requirement. However, these activities require specialized light sources that typically require high power, are bulky and difficult to use in the field, and do not work with all types of radiometers. We propose a next-generation portab ...

  5. A Nanotube Surface Reinforced Graphite Fiber Exhibiting Significantly Enhanced Properties

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: X203

    The completed Phase I work was directed at the application of nanotechnology to graphite/epoxy composites. A novel approach to the application of the nanotubes onto the carbon fiber surface was investigated. As a result, a very significant increase in compressive strength of 120% was attained, compared with 20% reported in the literature. The Phase II builds on the success of the Phase I. It w ...

  6. Enhanced Brine Dewatering System

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X302

    The purpose of the Enhanced Brine Dewatering System (EBDS) is to provide an easily scalable means of completely recovering usable water from byproducts created by reverse osmosis water purification systems without the use of consumable wicks. Extended duration Lunar and Mars missions will require the conservation and recovery of water to allow for autonomous closed environments that in turn can dr ...

  7. Plasma Air Decontamination System (PADS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X301

    The proposed Plasma Air Decontamination System (PADS) is a trace contaminant control device based on non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma technology that operates at ambient pressure and temperature and has the potential to replace the existing Trace Contaminant Control System (TCCS) used on the International Space Station and future exploration vehicles. Non-thermal atmospheric plasma has been ...

  8. Solid Oxide Electrolysis for Oxygen Production in an ARS

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X1201

    Oxygen regenerated from a crew's expired CO2 and H2O vapor is essential to enabling a continuous human presence on the moon at significantly reduced costs and risks. Any such technology demonstrated on the moon will then be ready to support the transport of humans to Mars and their eventual surface exploration efforts. Paragon Space Development Corporation is proposing an innovative, efficient ...

  9. Safe, Non-Corrosive Dielectric Fluid for Stagnating Radiator Thermal Control System

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X1101

    Paragon proposes to develop a single-loop, non-toxic, stagnating active pumped loop thermal control design for NASA's Orion or Lunar Surface Access Module (LSAM) program. While this technology was developed in the Apollo era, it has not been used in space since then. Furthermore, the fluids used in those first-generation units are not compatible with today's human-rated flight requirements as the ...

  10. Just-in-Time Simulation Platform

    SBC: Planet, LLC            Topic: X1202

    Long-duration missions may one day present the most demanding situations ever encountered in manned spaceflight. Success will therefore depend on the knowledge and flexibility of the crew and the critical tools at their disposal. This Phase I proposes to combine intelligent tutoring with highly interactive 3D simulation software to create an on-demand situational training and operations support sy ...
