  1. Tailoring the Solar Spectrum for Enhanced Crop Yield for Space Missions

    SBC: UbiQD, Inc            Topic: T7

    UbiQD, Inc,nbsp;has partnered with the University of Arizona, Controlled Environment Agriculture Center, to enhance the lighting component of the Mars-Lunar Greenhouse prototype to improve the food production of the system. Ultimately, the goals are for UbiQD to install a down-conversion film composed of quantum dots (QDs) into a solar collecting/fiber optic system to not only provide higher quali ...

  3. A Cognitive Communications Protocols Suite for Networked Space Platforms for Autonomous Dynamic Spectrum Co-existence with User-Initiated Service Support

    SBC: Bluecom Systems And Consulting LLC            Topic: T5

    The STTR topic T5.01 envisions Autonomous Communications Systems (ACS) that can be aware of RF environment and the network status and learn from experience to enhance adaptability to nominal/anomalous conditions, self-reconfigure network connections, dynamically maximize performance in response to sensed conditions and mitigate system-level effects of outages and interference. In Phase II, Bluecom ...

  4. Efficient Realistic Conjunction Analysis (EReCA)

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: H9

    The number of artificial objects orbiting the Earth today creates a challenging environment for the protection and safe operation of satellites. With the rise of micro-satellites, nano-satellites, and communications and sensing constellations consisting of hundreds of satellites, the space population is certain to multiply at a robust pace during the next decades of spaceflight, further exacerbati ...

  5. Imaging, Filtered Light Scattering Velocity Diagnostic

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A2

    The boundary layer plays a critical role in aerodynamics, acting as a barrier to the transfer of momentum from the air to the flight vehicle. In-flight measurements of velocity fields in the boundary layer could be used to establish the transition point to turbulent flow. This Phase I SBIR project will investigate a novel method for imaging flow velocity based on filtered light scattering. It does ...

  6. Multigas Diode Laser Instrument for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S1

    A diode laser instrument for simultaneously measuring methane, nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide, and water vapor onboard an unmanned aerial vehicle will be developed in this project. Wavelength modulation absorption spectroscopy will be used to perform the measurements at a 10 Hz rate. The system will use a compact open path multipass cell to provide the necessary optical pathlength. Three mid-infra ...

  7. Fate and Fortune: A Story-Based Algebra Simulator of High Seas Trade

    SBC: MidSchool Math, LLC            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test Fate and Fortune, an online class-wide intervention where grade 8 students learn algebra within a story-based game. Research demonstrates that students who do not succeed in algebra are more likely to eventually drop out of high school. When students begin Algebra I, a lack of conceptually meaning and understanding can be further reinforced by ...

  10. Gas Inlet Sensor for Measuring Dust Particle Size Distribution and Concentration

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: H1

    In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) involves collecting and converting local resources into products that can be used to reduce mission mass, cost, and/or risk of human exploration. ISRU products that provide significant mission benefits with minimal infrastructure required are propellants, fuel cell reactants, and life support consumables. Production of mission consumables from in-situ Mars resou ...
