The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Advanced Reversible Cryogenic Thermal Energy Storage (ARCTES)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N121060

    ORBITEC proposes to develop the Advanced Reversible Cryogenic Thermal Energy Storage (ARCTES) system, which will provide temporary backup cooling for circulating helium gas coolant in high-temperature superconducting (HTS) systems for naval applications. The ARCTES will rely on an initially-frozen cryogen to absorb heat from the passing helium gas through a heat exchanger device. As the working cr ...

  2. Integrated, self-actuated, blood collection and biomarker purification device

    SBC: Tasso, Inc            Topic: SB122003

    Blood-based point-of-care (POC) diagnostics or remote diagnostics that require specialized equipment only available in centralized, commercial laboratories are currently limited by major logistical and technical barriers. Blood collection can be a traumatic, inconvenient, and inconsistent process that is based on decades-old technologies, such as the lancet-puncture, that are not amenable to new P ...

  3. Advanced Battery Technologies and Manufacturing Process Improvements

    SBC: ESKRA TECHNICAL PRODUCTS INC            Topic: DLA122002

    Using a solvent free electrode manufacturing process, several different electrochemical couples will be tested using the C123 sized cell as the test bed. Both rechargeable and primary chemistries will be processed using the solventless electrode process that was successfully developed under a previous proof of concept BATTNET program effort. This effort will demonstrate the application of the pr ...

  4. High-Power, Continuous-Wave 3.0- to 3.5-Micron Emitting Quantum Cascade Semiconductor Laser

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N12AT003

    The technical objective of this proposal is to demonstrate a Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) emitting in the 3.0-3.5 & #181;m wavelength region, which employs a metamorphic buffer layer (MBL). It is the goal of this program to develop a QCL single-stripe device which will operate in a single, diffraction-limited lobe under room temperature continuous-wave (CW) operation to moderately high (~ 0.5 W ...

  5. Liquid Crystal-based Sensors for Detection of Airborne Toxic Chemicals for Integration with Unmanned Robotic Systems

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: A13AT004

    In Phase I we successfully reached all goals and milestones in developing liquid crystal sensors that detected 100 ppb of each of four target gases (DMMP, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide and ammonia) within 60 seconds. In Phase II, we propose to expand this detection capability to a total of seven gases, adding volatile organic compounds, chlorine and half-mustard to the set. We then propose ...

  6. Ultra High Repetition Rate Multi-Parameter Imaging Diagnostics for Reacting Flows

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF11BT16

    ABSTRACT: ORBITEC will develop a new diagnostic to acquire simultaneous planes of velocity and temperature data at very high repetition rates. This diagnostic relies on a novel pulse burst laser system, a phosphor thermometry technique, and the mature PIV method. The work plan will involve developing and testing the laser, refining the integrated technique, and demonstrating it in a supersonic ...

  7. Access Language Arts

    SBC: Attainment Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Instruction in English Language Arts (ELA) for students with severe intellectual disabilities and autism can be challenging, as these students often do not have the skills to engage with text. In recent years, special education experts have proposed a comprehensive approach to supporting students with intellectual disabilities and autism in ELA, centered on strategies including word ident ...

  8. Zero G Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: E103

    The Zero Gravity Mass Measurement Device (ZGMMD) provides the ability to measure the mass of samples in a microgravity environment, like that found on the International Space Station (ISS). One of the primary measurements often taken during science experiments is mass. This is even more relevant in biology, where mass is often one of the key measurements taken for analysis. During the Phase I effo ...

  9. Miniature Nontoxic Nitrous Oxide-Propane (MINNOP) Propulsion

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: S302

    ORBITEC proposes to develop the Miniature Nontoxic Nitrous Oxide-Propane (MINNOP) propulsion system, a small bipropellant propulsion system which we offer as an alternative to miniature hydrazine monopropellant thrusters for CubeSat-class spacecraft. As compared to state-of-the-art hydrazine systems, MINNOP propulsion will provide significant increases in specific impulse (in bipropellant mode) a ...

  10. Cryocooler With Cold Compressor for Deep Space Applications

    SBC: Madison CryoGroup LLC            Topic: S106

    The innovation is a high-frequency single-stage pulse tube cryocooler (PTC) that operates at a heat rejection temperature of 150 K. It employs a flexure-bearing cold compressor operating at that same heat rejection temperature. High frequency, low temperature pulse-tube cryocoolers are a promising technology for future NASA missions. Such missions will require cryocoolers providing cooling capacit ...
