The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A New Class of Miniaturized Lightweight Highly Efficient Solid State Cryogenic Cooler

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: S1

    A new class of solid-state, high-performance cryogenic coolers is proposed for space-based applications. Traditionally, cryocoolers for such applications have been Stirling or pulse tube refrigerators. These cryocoolers, although effective, are heavy, bulky, inefficient, and may cause vibrations. A high-performance solid-state cryocooler based on thermomagnetic cooling via the Ettingshausen effect ...

  2. Compact, Robust, Low Power High Sensitivity Gas Sensor

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: S107

    Miniaturized gas sensors with high sensitivity that are compact, low power and low weight are needed to support for NASA's airborne science missions, particularly those utilizing the Global Hawk, SIERRA-class, Dragon Eye or other unmanned aircraft. These UAV gas sensors are intended as calibration/validation systems for space-based measurements and/or to provide local measurements not available f ...

  3. Ultra High Sensitivity SWIR Methane Imaging Camera

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 861X

    Methane, is the third most prevalent greenhouse gas whose atmosphere concentration is currently over 1.7 ppm. Methane is about 21 times more potent when compared to CO2. Even though its concentration in the atmosphere is more than 200 times lower than carbon dioxide, methane is responsible for 20% of the greenhouse effect. The main natural resources for methane include wetlands, termites and the o ...

  5. Detectors with Improved Near-to-Mid IR Performance and Reduced Cooling Requirements

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: T802

    This program will develop an ultra-high performance infrared detector manufacturing technology with improved performance and cost effectiveness, and reduced cooling requirements when compared to the best commercially available HgCdTe and InGaAs detectors. This will be accomplished using a two-pronged approach addressing both device design and materials. First, the conventional pn photodiode device ...

  6. Detectors with Improved Near-to-Mid IR Performance and Reduced Cooling Requirements

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: T802

    This STTR Phase I proposal addresses a NASA need for improved near-to-mid IR detectors for imaging and spectroscopy. High performance IR detectors with cutoff wavelengths in the range of 2.5?5.0 microns will be developed using InGaAs / AlAsSb semiconductor materials. The proposal uses a two-pronged approach to address the problem of detector performance degradation by materials' defects, both ...

  7. Production of Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT) by Catalytic Disproportionation of CO in a Continuous Fluidized Bed System Phase II

    SBC: SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT)            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of SouthWest Nanotechnologies (SWeNT) is the development of superior technology for the large-scale manufacturing and marketing of nanotubes of unique quality for near-term specialty applications. The Phase I of this SBIR focused in demonstrating that SWeNT's process can be scaled-up to a continuous-mode operation. In the commercialization aspects, the company focused on developin ...

  8. Production of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes by Catalytic Disproportionation...

    SBC: SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT)            Topic: N/A

    The unmatched properties of single-wall nanotubes make them a unique product that will represent a billion-dollar market in applications that range from space to consumer products. At the University of Oklahoma, the catalytic production of SWNT has been optimized in a novel process (CoMoCAT) based on a specific catalyst formulation that yields SWNT with high selectivity. A fluidized bed reactor is ...

  10. ZERO GRAVITY PHASE SEPARATION VIA ULTRASONIC COALESCENCE

    SBC: Taylor S R & Assocs            Topic: N/A

    SYSTEM PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES FOR INHABITED AND SPACE SUIT ENVIRONMENTS WILL REQUIRE INNOVATIONS IN BOTH ENVIRONMENTAL AND LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE NEED FOR A COMPACT, RELIABLE, LOW POWER TECHNIQUE TO SEPARATE GAS (E.G., AIR) FROM A WATER TRANSPORTLOOP IN A ZERO OR LOW GRAVITY ENVIRONMENT, FOR EXAMPLE, TO PREVENT WATER PUMP CAVITATION. WE ARE CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING THE ...
