  1. A Compact Safe Cold-Start (CS2) System for Scramjets using Dilute Triethylaluminum Fuel Mixtures

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: A202

    This proposal addresses the cold-start requirements of scramjet engines by developing a safe, energy-dense, and low volume hydrocarbon fuel conditioning system based on the hydrolysis reaction of water with triethylaluminum (TEA). TEA is an organometallic liquid that reacts exothermically with water and burns readily in air when not diluted in hydrocarbon mixtures. We propose to use the hydrolys ...

  2. QMU in Integrated Spacecraft System Models

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: T5

    ACTA and Sandia National Laboratories propose to quantify and propagate substructure modeling uncertainty for reduced-order substructure models to higher levels of system assembly, thereby enabling predictive simulations of engineering designs with quantified margins and uncertainties for model-based flight qualification of complete spacecraft. A critical part of this process is the accurate mode ...

  3. Polarization Maintaining Coherent Fiber Bundle Array

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S104

    Future NASA flight missions are considering passive wavefront and amplitude control in astronomical applications such as the search for exo-planets. NASA's Discovery mission proposal called out the need for a coherent 2-dimensional array of fiber bundles for this application. In this SBIR proposal we propose to develop monolithic polarization maintaining (PM) coherent fiber bundle arrays consistin ...

  4. Thermal Management System for Long-Lived Venus Landers

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S303

    Long-lived Venus landers require power and cooling. Heat from the roughly 64 General Purpose Heat Source (GPHS) modules must be delivered to the convertor with minimal ÄT. The cooling system must be shutoff during the transit to Venus without overheating the GPHS modules. This program will develop an alkali metal Variable Conductance Heat Pipe (VCHP) integrated with a two-phase heat collection/tr ...

  5. Loop Heat Pipe with Thermal Control Valve for Passive Variable Thermal Link

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S302

    Loop heat pipes (LHPs) can provide variable thermal conductance needed to maintain electronics and batteries on Lunar/Martian rovers/landers within desired temperature range. During lunar day, the LHP transfers the heat to the radiator for rejection. During the fourteen-day-long lunar night, the sink temperature drops, lowering LHP and WEB/battery temperatures. Without a variable thermal link, the ...

  6. Interfacial Design of Composite Ablative Materials

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A201

    This Phase I Small Business Innovative Research project proposes to develop a multiscale computational methodology capable of accurate prediction of the properties and performance of insulating ablative materials that are used to protect the re-entry of vehicles from excessive thermal loads. In particular, this effort will focus on multi-million atom, reactive molecular dynamics (MD) simulations o ...

  7. Novel Reduced Order in Time Models for Problems in Nonlinear Aeroelasticity

    SBC: Advanced Dynamics, Inc.            Topic: A204

    Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art, reduced order models for problems in nonlinear aeroelasticity. Highly efficient and accurate aeroelastic simulation tools will be constructed based upon the mathematical formalism of optimal prediction theory and a novel implementation of a filtered harmonic balance solution methodology. The implications of the propos ...

  8. Manufacture of Novel Cryogenic Thermal Protection Materials

    SBC: Advanced Materials Technology, Inc.            Topic: X801

    Advanced Materials Technology, Inc (AMTI) responds to the NASA SBIR solicitation X8 "Space Cryogenic Systems" under subtopic X8.01, "Cryogenic Fluid Transfer and Handling". The proposed Phase I SBIR program is aimed at developing new cryogenic insulations for passive thermal control, resulting in zero boil-off storage of cryogens. The passive thermal control will serve to limit the heat leak int ...

  9. High Fidelity, High Volume Agglutinate Manufacturing Process

    SBC: Zybek Advanced Products, Inc.            Topic: X602

    Up to 65% of the lunar soils are comprised of agglutinates. Although the importance of agglutinate in simulants is often debated, the fact is that agglutinates account for a large portion of the lunar soil and have known effects on final material properties. Increasing the fidelity of terrestrially manufactured simulant can reduce mission risk. Zybek Advanced Products, Inc., is proposing an i ...

  10. Low Cost, Lightweight, Multifunctional Structural Shielding Materials

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: X4

    This SBIR involves the development of a lightweight innovative material for use as structure and radiation shielding in one. APS has assembled a uniquely qualified team that includes designers, testing experts and consolidation companies to address this need. Reducing the number of parts on a vehicle is important from a cost, weight and performance aspects. Several systems and radiation sources ...
