  1. A Robust Biofilm-Biomat Reactor for Conversion of Mission-Relevant Feedstocks to Products

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: T7

    Sustainable Bioproducts (SBP) has developed a simple and energy efficient bioreactor technology for the purpose of supporting NASArsquo;s in-situ microbial manufacturing needs. The technology capitalizes on the robust nature of filamentous fungi grown as biofilms. SBP has shown that the system can be used to convert a multitude of mission available feedstocks into dense, easily harvestable biomats ...

  2. Development of a Rapid Monitoring System for Detection of Pathogens in Marine Aquaculture

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: 836

    pathogens in marine aquaculture waters. Phase II research will look to improve sample concentration, cell lysis, and DNA purification techniques that were developed in Phase I. More specifically, optimization of the prototype lysis/elution fluid will be further developed for cell lysis using BSL-1 organisms, Vibrio harveyi, a surrogate for pathogenic Vibrio ssp. Techniques will be developed to ove ...

  3. Low-Cost Mixed-Phase Cloud Characterization Sensor Suite

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S1

    Satellites provide valuable data for cloud, precipitation, and radiative transfer research.nbsp; Supporting in-situ atmospheric measurements of cloud properties are essential.nbsp; While research aircraft carry the best in-situ instruments, the aircraft and instruments are too expensive to provide sufficient coverage.nbsp; Anasphere is developing a suite of low-cost, balloon-borne instruments that ...

  4. ARCSTONE Improvements

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase II effort will advance a new ARCSTONE instrument for calibrating lunar reflectance from TRL 2 to TRL 4. The new instrument, conceived in the Phase I effort, will be much smaller than first-generation units and fit within a 6U satellite payload with substantial margin. This system will utilize a single focal plane array and span the spectral range of 350-2,300 nm. Optical modeling i ...

  6. High-Capacity, High-Speed, Solid-State Hydrogen Gas Generator

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: Z7

    Deployable aerodynamic decelerators are an enabling technology for missions to planets and moons with atmospheres as well as for returning payloads to Earth.  These decelerators require a gas source for inflation, and the objective is to provide an improvement over existing pressurized gas inflation systems. A hydrogen gas generator suitable for the inflation of Hypersonic Aerodynamic In ...

  7. High Power, Thermally Optimized Blue Laser for Lidar

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S101

    To enable widespread and rapid airborne bathymetric lidar to adequate depths in many ocean regions a low-cost, rugged, and high energy pulsed laser source must be developed in the ocean water transmittance spectrum of 450 - 490 nm. The ideal laser source will be high performance for lidar (high pulse energy, high rep rate, short pulse duration) with specific targeted emission spectrum to meet ocea ...

  8. Space-Hardened Seed Laser for Use in High Spectral Resolution Lidar Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort to develop a fully packaged, environmentally hardened, diode-based, locked wavelength, seed laser for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for future space-based, high spectral resolution Lidar (HSRL) measurements. The Phase I effort successfully demonstrated that a diode-based, wavelength-locked seed laser can provide the spectral pur ...

  9. Lunar Spectral Irradiance Monitor

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S103

    The purpose of this effort is to develop an instrument to accurately calibrate (1% k=2) the lunar spectral reflectance (350 to 2,300 nm) at relatively low expense from a small satellite. Assuming the TSIS missions are successful and the solar irradiance is known, the lunar spectral reflectance can be used to provide known lunar irradiance, thereby providing a stable exo-atmospheric calibration sou ...

  10. A Multi-Wavelength Transceiver for In-Situ Validation of Airborne Remote Sensing Instruments

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S107

    The overall goal of this Phase II SBIR effort is to develop a three-wavelength, backscatter transceiver for in situ validation of ongoing High Spectral Resolution Lidar measurements. The key innovation in the effort is the use of a multi-element, non-linear waveguide for highly efficient, three wavelength generation in a collinear geometry ideally suited for use in the backscatter nephelometer at ...
