  1. Carbon Nanotube-Based Adsorbents for Volatile Air Contaminants

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: T501

    In completing the Phase I SBIR, Agave BioSystems and the Universities Space Research Association, have successfully demonstrated proof of concept for the use of novel carbon nanotube (CNT)-based structures as next generation smart adsorbents for the adsorption and destruction of potentially toxic air contaminants. Since CNTs have an extremely high surface area, can be readily modified with metals ...

  2. 600 Volt Stretched Lens Array for Solar Electric Propulsion

    SBC: ENTECH, Inc.            Topic: T302

    ENTECH, Auburn, NASA, and others have recently developed a new space photovoltaic array called the Stretched Lens Array (SLA), offering unprecedented performance (>80 kW/cu.m. stowed power, >300 W/sq.m. areal power, and >300 W/kg specific power) and cost-effectiveness (>75% savings in $/W compared to planar arrays). SLA achieves these outstanding attributes by employing flexible Fresnel lenses fo ...

  3. Integrated Data Assimilation Architecture

    SBC: Invocon, Inc.            Topic: T301

    The Integrated Data Assimilation Architecture (IDAA) addresses the fundamental problem of command, control, and communications systems interoperability. Interoperability of Explorations systems is necessary to improve reliability, reduce complexity, increase software and hardware reusability, and enable multi-developer / multi-agency support. The IDAA architecture consists of a software component ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. CNT-Based Smart Electrostatic Filters for Capturing Nanoparticulate Lunar Regolith

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: X301

    The abrasive, reactive, and ubiquitous nature of lunar regolith created significant and serious problems during the Apollo moon missions. In this Phase I, Agave BioSystems, in collaboration with Dr. Randy Vander Wal of the Universities Space Research Association, propose to develop next generation smart filters using novel carbon nanotube (CNT)-based structures in electrostatic devices. Since CN ...

  6. Electrochemical-Driven Fluid Pump for Spacecraft Thermal Control

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: S706

    With the increasing power demands and longer life spans of space vehicles, their thermal management becomes ever more critical. Accompanying this is an unprecedented need for reduction in spacecraft size and weight. However, reduced weight leads to higher power densities, and waste-heat dissipation densities have grown by an order of magnitude with the use of smaller, more powerful electronics. ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. A Data Abstraction Architecture for Spacecraft Autonomy

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: X202

    Spacecraft generate huge amounts of data. A significant challenge for both human operators and autonomous control systems is ensuring that the right data (and combinations of data) are available at the right time for control and decision-making and ensuring that the data is at the right abstraction level. A key part of this process is data abstraction -- that is converting low-level analog or di ...
