  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 ...

  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 ...

  5. Precision Heated Tooling for OOA Curing of Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: T12

    Thin-ply prepregs offer significant improvements in weight reduction, stiffness and overall mechanical properties over traditional composite laminates. nbsp;Thin plies (lt;0.05 mm/layer) suppress or delay crack initiation in loaded composite structures thereby allowing for manufacturing of lighter, stiffer and more durable composite products. Recent thin-ply prepreg materials, consisting of toughe ...

  7. 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 ...
