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

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: T7

    Sustainable Bioproducts (SB) proposes to develop an encapsulated biofilm-biomat reactor that will efficiently convert mission relevant feedstocks to usable products under zero gravity conditions. The bioreactor will be based on SB’s proprietary fermentation platform for converting a wide variety of waste streams into a multitude of usable products. SB’s bioreactor platform is simple, d ...

  2. ARCSTONE Improvements

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase I effort will be devoted to exploring possible improvements for the NASA ARCSTONE instrument. One possible improvement will be to utilize total internal reflection optics for the fore-optics of the system. Possible benefits include reduced polarization and smaller size. A second possible improvement will be to use an optical design that requires only one focal plane array for the e ...

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

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S1

    Radiative transfer properties of clouds play an important role in the energy balance of the Earth.  Numerous NASA programs and experiments are directed to measuring these effects.  In-situ measurements are critical for supporting satellite-borne instruments.  While research aircraft carry the best in-situ instruments, the aircraft and instruments are too expensive to provide suffici ...

  4. Frequency Agile Seed Laser for Orbital Doppler-Shift Compensation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S1

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort is to develop a frequency-agile, stand-alone, space-hardened diode-based seed laser with options for locking and frequency agility to compensate for doppler shift during orbit. This US-manufactured platform will be applicable for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for high-priority-designated aerosol missions (single- and multi-chann ...

  5. An Affordable Autonomous Hydrogen Flame Detection System for Rocket Propulsion

    SBC: INNOVATIVE IMAGING & RESEARCH CORP            Topic: H10

    NASA has long used liquid hydrogen as a fuel and plans to continue using it in association with their advanced nuclear thermal propulsion technology. Hydrogen fire detection is critical for rocket propulsion safety and maintenance. A significant fire at a rocket test or launch facility could be catastrophic to infrastructure or even worse, to human life. Detection monitoring is problematic as hydr ...

  8. Ceramic-Metal Interfaces by Functional Grading

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: A107

    Glacigen Materials proposes a novel technique for producing large-area sheets of functionally graded materials (FGM), which yield robust ceramic-metal interfaces capable of withstanding harsh environments that include high temperatures. Propulsion systems offer some of the harshest possible design conditions from a materials perspective and the demands placed on engineering materials will become m ...
