  1. Low Temperature In Space Additive Manufacturing of Metals and Alloys for NASA Missions

    SBC: UHV TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: Z3

    The overall goal of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of 3D printing of ferrous, Cobalt, and Nickel-based alloys, using UHV’s innovative low temperature 3D printing technology for metals and alloys. This technology is based on electrochemical (co-)deposition of metallic ions at the tips of an array of electrolyte-containing nozzles, which are controlled by CAD files from a compu ...

  2. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed.  The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium  to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through cross ...

  3. Determining Students' Academic Engagement while Completing Learning Activities and Assessments

    SBC: Tutorgen, Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of D-TECH, a system to determine students' level of academic engagement while completing computer-based learning activities and assessments. The prototype will integrate within existing third party computer-based programs (e.g., online courseware, educational games, simulations, intelligent tutors) and will consist of a ...

  4. Fail-Safe, Controllable Liquid Spring/Damper System for Improved Rover Space Vehicle Mobility

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: H601

    NASA is planning to return to the moon in 2020 to explore thousands of miles of the moon?s surface with individual missions, lasting six months or longer. Surface mobility is critical to outpost buildup and exploration activities, where the change in the vehicle weight between unloaded and loaded cargo conditions and travel over rough terrain can adversely affect the ride handling conditions and ...

  5. Monolithic Power Integrated Circuits for Merging Power Electronics, Management, and Distribution

    SBC: Apiq Semiconductor LLC            Topic: S303

    APIQ Semiconductor proposes development of a scalable, wide bandgap (WBG) monolithic power integrated circuit (MPIC) technology for power electronic conversion, management, and distribution. The proposed WBG microelectronics are to be based upon low defect, homogeneous gallium nitride (GaN) based materials using native GaN substrates. The technology to be developed will replace silicon power switc ...

  6. Development of an Advanced Diamond TEC Cathode

    SBC: IOP Technologies LLC            Topic: T603

    NASA recognizes the importance of conservation, smart utilization and reuse of resources for their deep space missions to address the need for regeneration of air, water and waste with highly reliable systems to reduce mission payload. Additionally, energy for life support and other systems needs to be obtained from renewable energy sources or waste streams. In order to address NASA's requirements ...

  7. Fabrication of T-SOFC via Freeze Cast Methods for Space and Portable Applications

    SBC: Yanhai Power LLC            Topic: H801

    As NASA space missions become longer in duration the need for high efficiency power generator sets that can operate on NASA logistical fuel become critical. Historically NASA has used fuel cells as part of the energy solution. Space bound energy and power systems require rapid start and stop cycle times as well as high power densities. The high operational efficiency, coupled with the use of logi ...

  8. A Green, Safe, Multi-Pulse Solid Motor (MPM) for CubeSats

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Today's CubeSats lack storable, green, safe propulsion options for complex science missions that may involve large Delta-V changes, proximity operations, and attitude control systems (ACS) for pointing, spin-up, and spin-down. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing propulsion for CubeSats and will leverage existing research efforts into a new system for NASA. A key technology identifi ...

  9. Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) Fueled Pulsed Plasma Thruster

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing the development of a new liquid Pulsed Plasma Thruster (PPT) using its revolutionary HAN-based Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) to enable spacecraft missions whose fulfillment requires the high specific impulse of conventional Telfon-fueled PPTs, but would like the flexibility in mission design that liquid fueled systems allow. DSSP's GEM propellant i ...
