  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...
