  1. Electrospray Collection of Airborne Contaminants

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: X301

    In stark contrast to current stagnation-based methods for capturing airborne particulates and biological aerosols, our demonstrated, cost-effective electrospray technology employs an entirely different approach based on the remarkable effectiveness of small, highly charged liquid droplets formed from an electrospray source to "getter" both particles and polar molecules dispersed in a gas. Less cap ...

  2. Closed-Loop Pure Oxygen Static Feed Fuel Cell for Lunar Missions

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: X803

    In order to address the NASA lunar mission, DESC proposes to develop a proton exchange membrane (PEM) closed-loop pure oxygen fuel cell for application to lunar surface exploration, building upon DESC's expertise and fundamental demonstrations in closely related technology. Building upon the recent NASA SBIR Phase II and Navy SBIR Phase I work, the static feed URFC hardware will be converted for ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Distributed Multi-Agent Fault Diagnosis and Reconfiguration Control

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T101

    In order to meet the challenges of long-duration space exploration (e.g., missions to the Moon, Mars and beyond), onboard real-time health management of spacecraft that responds rapidly to system and subsystem events is essential. In response to this need, Qualtech Systems, Inc. (QSI), in cooperation with Vanderbilt University, proposes to develop a distributed multi-agent fault diagnosis and rec ...

  7. Automated Fault Diagnostics, Prognostics, and Recovery in Spacecraft Power Systems

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X201

    Constellation Program, the next frontier of NASA's space exploration plan, targets for manned mission to Moon and Mars. The missions under this program will be of long-duration and far more critical than any previous manned mission. Integrated Systems Health Management (ISHM), which includes fault detection, diagnosis, and prognosis, has been recognized as one of the critical processes that will e ...

  8. Efficient Thermally Stable Spectral Control Filters for Thermophotovoltaics

    SBC: RUGATE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S203

    The feasibility of radioisotope thermophotovoltaic (RTPV) power systems has been shown. The best efficiencies reported to date for a TPV module test include front surface spectral control filters. This program will address the technical challenges to developing and qualifying highly efficient spectral control filters that can survive high temperatures(above 150 degrees C)for long periods of time. ...

  9. Apodized Occulting and Pupil Masks for Imaging Coronagraphs

    SBC: RUGATE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S302

    The technical challenge of imaging planets in other star systems is resolving these dim objects in the close vicinity of a bright star. This challenge requires the suppression of direct and scattered light from the star without attenuating or distorting the planet's image. We will develop and demonstrate high performance apodized occulting and pupil masks using a metal/metal oxide film blended to ...

  10. Plume Diagnostics for Combustion Stability

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T901

    Sierra Engineering Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a non-intrusive plume instrument capable of detecting and diagnosing combustion instability. This Stability Diagnostic System (SDS) will be designed, assembled, and tested during this effort. The SDS will include a high-speed video camera and multiple photodiode detectors for observing the plume. It will also include a software pa ...
