  1. Dual Plane 3D Compton Scattering Imager with Pixelated CZT Detectors for 1-10MeV Gamma Ray

    SBC: H3D            Topic: None

    Phase I has proven that the current setup achieves better than 8mm spatial resolution for 2.2MeV prompt gammas. However, 1mm spatial resolution presents a significant challenge for the current setup due in part to limited timing resolution and count rate. A new analog ASIC will be developed to replace the current analog ASIC that will have better timing resolution and deliver higher count rates. I ...

  3. Broadband Vector Vortices for High Contrast Coronagraphy

    SBC: Beam Engineering For Advanced Measurements Co.            Topic: S2

    The requirement of detecting nearly ten orders of magnitude smaller signal of a planet compared to the nearby star puts forward extreme challenges for coronagraphs designed for exoplanet imaging. Vector vortex waveplates (VWs) appear to be capable of providing best performance compared to other mask technologies due to their structure as thin film coatings of continuous texture that minimizes ligh ...

  4. 5 Watt per Kilogram Tritium Betavoltaic

    SBC: City Labs, Inc.            Topic: S3

    The central goal of this Phase II effort is to create the worldrsquo;s first milliwatt scale betavoltaic. This project will utilize an ultra-thin, light weight, betavoltaic p/n junction, developed in Phase I, that increases the efficiency of betavoltaic devices from 8% to greater than 10% based on the incident tritium beta flux.nbsp; Betavoltaic power sources offer advantages under conditions that ...

  5. Glass Alloy in Microgravity (GAMMA)

    SBC: Made In Space, Inc.            Topic: H8

    MIS is pioneering the use of the microgravity environment on the International Space Station (ISS) for manufacturing technology and product development. MIS has leveraged NASA SBIR support to create the first polymer additive manufacturing machines in space, develop a hybrid additive-subtractive metal manufacturing technology, and investigate the creation of large single-crystal industrial materia ...

  6. Precision In-Space Manufacturing for Structurally-Connected Space Interferometry

    SBC: Made In Space, Inc.            Topic: S2

    Made In Space, Inc. continues the development of an in-space manufacturing architecture for precision long-baseline structures that support space interferometry missions in the infrared. In-space manufacturing and assembly of interferometer structures optimized for the target environment dramatically reduce the system cost, mass, and areal density without sacrificing the structural control of the ...

  8. High Performance Solver for Coupled Cavitation and Fluid-Structure Interaction in Cryogenic Environments

    SBC: Streamline Numerics, Inc.            Topic: H10

    The innovation proposed here is a high performance, high fidelity simulation capability to enable accurate, fast and robust simulation of coupled cavitation and fluid-structure interaction (FSI) in flows involving cryogenic fluids of interest to NASA (such as LOX, LH2, LN2, etc.). Cavitation and other unsteady flow-induced phenomena in some components of liquid rocket engines as well as testing ca ...
