  1. Integrated Silicon Carbide Electronics for Venus Surface Actuation

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S4

    NASA has invested significant time and money in developing high-temperature technologies for Venus surface exploration. Due to the harsh environment outside an insulated lander body (~462deg;C, 92 bar pressure, CO2 atmosphere), conventional, high-TRL components and materials will not survive, even for a short duration mission lasting only a few hours.To meet this need, Ozark IC has worked with NAS ...

  2. Extreme Environment System Integration Techniques for Venus In-Situ Processing

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S4

    NASA has demonstrated a resolve to land instruments on the corrosive, high-pressure (~100 bar), high-temperature (470deg;C) surface of Venus. NASA Glenn Research Centerrsquo;s JFET-R technology is the only one that has shown 1000rsquo;s of hours operation under Venus surface conditions. The limitation of this process is that the current integrated circuit die and feature sizes make it impractical ...

  3. Thermally Partially Reduced Graphene Oxide Membranes for Water Recovery from Wastewater

    SBC: Nanomatronix, LLC            Topic: T6

    For NASA#39;s space missions, water must be carried from Earth or generated by fuel cells, for the use of oxygen generation, drinking, food reconstitution, oral hygiene, and hygienic uses (showers, handwashing, and urine flushing). The high launch costs of fresh water to space and environmental health of crewmembers are the two major factors for water reclamation and reuse. Urine is expected to co ...

  4. Integrated Silicon Carbide Electronics for Venus Surface Actuation

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S4

    NASA has demonstrated a resolve for a flagship mission in the coming years to revisit Venus and land instruments on the surface. Venus has a corrosive, high-pressure (~100 bar), high-temperature (470°C) environment. A motor drive is the major theme that runs through the most critical needs for optimum geological and atmospheric exploration on Venus.An electronically-controlled motor, operating ...

  5. A 128-Channel Compact VUV Spectrometer for Wide-Temperature Entry Descent & Landing Sensing Applications

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: Z7

    NASA manned and robotic missions to the surface of planetary or airless bodies require Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL). For many of these missions, EDL represents one of the riskiest phases of the mission. Despite the criticality of the EDL phase, NASA has historically gathered limited engineering data from such missions, and use of the data for real-time Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN& ...

  6. Highly Scalable SiC UV Imager for Earth & Planetary Science

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S104

    Commercial silicon carbide (SiC)-based photonic sensors typically use p-i-n photodiode and reversed-biased Avalanche Photodiode (APD) detectors. These state-of-the-art SiC photodiodes use the wafer substrate as one node of the device, thereby making monolithic integration of the device with control or analysis circuitry difficult, if not impossible. In Phase I, Ozark IC demonstrated that its new ...

    SBIR Phase II 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. A Wide-Temperature Range Wire-Line Communication Link Using the NASA Glenn SiC JFET Technology

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S404

    NASA has demonstrated a resolve for a flagship mission in the coming years to revisit Venus and land instruments on the surface. Venus has a corrosive, high pressure (~100 bar), high-temperature (up to 500 C) environment presenting extreme design challenges for lander electronics. The ability to establish simple wire-line communications between circuits operating in extremely disparate temperatur ...

  8. A SiC-based Microcontroller for High-Temperature In-Situ Instruments and Systems

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S106

    NASA has a need for electronics that can support proposed flagship missions such as a Venus surface lander. Devices that can operate at temperatures of up to 500?C are desired. Ozark IC and its partner, the University of Arkansas, have created the world's largest known library of CMOS silicon-carbide (SiC) analog and mixed-signal circuits, intellectual property (IP) and packages that can operate ...

  9. Highly Scalable SiC UV Imager for Earth & Planetary Science

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: S104

    Commercial silicon carbide (SiC)-based photonic sensors typically use p–i–n photodiode and reversed-biased Avalanche Photodiode (APD) detectors. These state-of-the-art SiC photodioides use the wafer substrate as one node of the device, thereby making monolithic integration of the device with control or analysis circuitry difficult, if not impossible. Ozark IC's new (patent pending) phot ...

  10. Extreme Temperature Radiation Tolerant Instrumentation for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion Engines

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: H202

    The objective of this proposal is to develop and commercialize a high reliability, high temperature smart neutron flux sensor for NASA Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems. Arkansas Power Electronics International (APEI) and International Femtoscience (FemtoSci) technology offers the following: (1) 600+ degC ambient operation of a full wireless smart sensor system (2) Extreme-environment elec ...
