  2. Redox Tolerant Cathode for Solid Oxide Electrolysis Stacks

    SBC: Oxeon Energy, LLC            Topic: H1

    OxEon Energy proposes a combination of materials and engineering solutions to demonstrate the reduction-oxidation (redox) stability of a solid oxide electrolysis cathode during start up and operation. The redox tolerant cathode material will reduce system complexity, tolerate flow upset conditions, and provide flexibility in space based systems without a man-in-the-loop.Solid oxide electrolysis st ...

  3. Multi-Physics Approach to Simulate Dust Accumulation/Removal

    SBC: MotionPort LLC            Topic: H5

    This Phase I SBIR will build on MotionPort’s previous simulation successes in the area of solar array deployment, addressing the specific challenge of simulating dust accumulation on solar arrays for long-term energy needs on the surface of Mars. MotionPort will use the Compact Telescoping Surface Array (CTSA) concept, developed by NASA Langley, for the example model. Simulations will be run ...

  4. Model-Based Design Assessment and FM Visualization Technologies in TEAMS

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    NASA's FM community has identified one of the major problems with FM on the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) missions being that the complexity of FM has often been discovered late in the system development during testing, or in other cases in flight itself requiring unplanned, major spikes in resources to ensure that it will work properly and not create failures in the system that it is tryi ...

  5. In-Situ Electrospray Capture of Organic Bearing Particulates from Comets and Celestial Bodies

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: S1

    NASA has need for technologies that can enable sampling from asteroids and from depth in a comet nucleus, improved in-situ analysis of comets. It has been identified that there is also a requirement for improved dust environment measurements & particle analysis, small body resource identification, and/or quantification of potential small body resources (e.g., oxygen, water and other volatiles, ...

  6. In-Situ Electrospray Capture of Organic Bearing Particulates from Alien Water Fountains

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: S4

    NASA has need for technologies that can enable sampling from water jets, such as those observed emanating from the moon Enceladus and from the moon Europa. We propose to leverage past observations of the ability of electrospray ionization to capture and concentrate polar or polarizable trace species without damage, and combine that knowledge with recent discoveries in developing a hypervelocity ic ...

  7. Internal/External Surface Finishing of Additively Manufactured IN-625 Components

    SBC: Rem Chemicals, Inc.            Topic: Z3

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a surface finishing technology for Inconel 625 Additive Manufactured (AM) workpieces.   The following methodologies will be evaluated and optimized: vibratory finishing, chemical milling and electropolishing.  Once optimized, the project will explore combinations of these aforementioned methodologies in order to identify a surface finishi ...

  8. Fiber Optic Sensing System for Entry Descent and Landing

    SBC: Sequent Logic, LLC            Topic: Z7

    The proposed effort will establish technical feasibility of a high-performance size-, weight-, and power-optimized distributed fiber-optic sensing platform appropriate for deep spaceflight missions and amenable to harsh launch, entry, descent, and landing environments. Custom and commercial off-the-shelf sensors and sensor arrangements appropriate for multi-parameter sensing in thermal protection ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Textile Strain Measurement System

    SBC: KATABASIS ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: Z11

    Current evaluations of stress in textile parachute structures rely heavily on analytical estimation without adequate data collection means to validate or improve simulations.  Features of available data acquisition tools are too limited to facilitate “live” stress measurement of parachute textiles in operation.  Advancements in microelectronics and electronics infused "E ...

  10. Innovative, Rapidly Regenerable, Structured Trace-Contaminant Sorbents Fabricated Using 3D Printing

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: H4

    The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space requires regenerable life support systems. This proposal addresses the fabrication of structured (monolithic), carbon-based trace-contaminant (TC) sorbents for the space suit used in Extravehicular Activities (EVAs). The proposed innovations are: (1) the use of thin-walled, structured carbon TC sorbents fabricated u ...
