  1. A Hybrid Pyrolysis/Incineration System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Both pyrolysis and incineration steps have been considered as the key solid waste processing step for a Controlled Ecological Life Support System (CELSS). Pyrolysis is more amenable to handling mixed solid waste streams in a microgravity environment, but produces a more complex product stream. Incineration produces a simpler product stream, but the incineration of mixed solids is a complex unit op ...

  2. A Multi-Wavelength Seed Derived Laser for In-Situ Validation of Airborne Remote Sensing Instruments

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S107

    This Phase I SBIR will establish the feasibility of developing a collinear three wavelength source for an in-situ, 1800, back scatter nephelometer. The three wavelength source is being developed to facilitate on-board validation measurements of airborne remote backscatter lidar. Currently, commercial nephelometers utilized for in-situ validation measurements employ wavelengths that are both not ...

  3. Carbon-Supported Amine Sorbent Monoliths for Carbon Dioxide Removal

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space will require the development of regenerable life support systems. On-board carbon dioxide (CO2) removal units play a key role in such systems ensuring high quality cabin air for crew members. Similar but more compact units are needed for extravehicular activities (space suit). The overall objective is to develop a C ...

  4. Cascaded Injection Locked Diode Laser Transmitter For Lidar Measurements

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A lidar laser transmitter useful for profiling of clouds, aerosols, and differential absorption measurements of atmospheric trace constituents such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, and ozone is proposed. The proposed laser transmitter is based on a master tunable external cavity diode laser (ECDL) used to injection lock a series of free running laser diodes (FRLD's). The FRDL's amplify the injected ...

  5. Compact, Rugged and Low-Cost Atmospheric Ozone DIAL Transmitter

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S101

    Bridger Photonics Inc. (Bridger) proposes developing the most efficient, compact, rugged, low-power consumption and cost-effective UV ozone differential absorption lidar (DIAL) transmitter available. Bridger will demonstrate pulse energies above 0.5 mJ with a goal of 1 mJ/pulse with a pulse repetition frequency of 1 kHz. The proposed transmitter will enable widespread deployment of ozone DIAL s ...

  6. Contact Stress Design Parameters for Titanium Bearings

    SBC: AIR-LOCK, INCORPORATED            Topic: H402

    In response to NASA 2015 SBIR Topic H4.02, Air-Lock proposes to define the maximum allowable contact stress for Titanium bearings. The modulus of Titanium is lower than legacy spacesuit bearing materials (Stainless Steel). Due to this, Titanium bearings are more susceptible to deflection under man and plug load scenarios. Bearing deflection causes a limited number of balls to absorb the full load ...

  7. Cytometer on a Chip

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed effort is to develop a novel technology that will provide a unique and powerful alternative to conventional flow cytometry. This new system, which we call a cytometer on a chip will spatially sort cells on a microarray chip based on the presence of specific cell surface receptors or other surface features. Detection and quantitation is accomplished with grating-couple ...

  8. Diagnosis-Driven Prognosis for Decision Making

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A104

    In Phase II, the QSI-Vanderbilt team seeks to develop a system-level diagnostics and prognostic process that incorporates a "sense and respond capability," which first uses error codes and discrete sensor values to correctly diagnose the system health including degradations and failures of sensors and components, and then invokes appropriate prognostics routines for the assessment of RUL and perfo ...

    SBIR Phase II 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Digital Acquisition and Wavelength Control of Seed Laser for Space-Based LIDAR Applications

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    This SBIR Phase II proposes the development and delivery of a compact, space qualifiable, diode-based seed laser system that utilizes a digital controller to allow autonomous acquisition of lock to the required wavelength in remote environments for multi-wavelength flight and space-based lidar applications. Successful development of this technology, due to its compact, efficient, and reliable des ...

  10. Efficient, High Power Density Hydrocarbon-Fueled Solid Oxide Stack System

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: H802

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative high power density design for direct internal reforming of regolith off-gases (e.g., methane and high hydrocarbons) within a solid oxide stack. The resulting enhanced heat transfer design offers the potential for higher overall efficiency, simplifies the system, and enables further compactness and weight reduction o ...
