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. Optimization of Supersonic Jet Noise Using a Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes Approach

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: A1

    The objective of this proposal is the development and demonstration of a cost-effective high-fidelity aeroacoustic design tool for future commercial supersonic nozzle designs and installations. Although eddy-resolving  CFD methods for computing high-speed jet noise are available, such methods are computationally expensive and are currently deemed impractical for use in a design optimizat ...

  2. Integrated Launch Vehicle Booster using a Rocket Engine with a Combined Thermodynamic Cycle

    SBC: FRONTIER ASTRONAUTICS, LLC            Topic: Z9

    The concept describes a booster for a launch vehicle that is simpler to make, transport and launch than current launch vehicles. It is composed of two major components. The first being a booster structure and the second being a liquid rocket engine that uses a thermodynamic cycle that is a combination of two common cycles.Furthermore, the engine is actually fairly simple when compared to ...

  3. Nanostructured Dielectrics for High-Temperature Capacitors

    SBC: THERMOSOLV LLC            Topic: Z101

    Space operation places extra physical and structural demands on the power components, including capacitors. Nanostructured dielectrics offer the opportunity to tailor the dielectric material on the nanometer scale to provide tremendous improvements in electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties, and enable high-temperature, high-energy-density, and high-voltage capacitors. In this project, the ...

  4. Lightweight, Compact Survival Rafts

    SBC: Kennon Products, Inc.            Topic: H401

    An advanced, lightweight inflation system is proposed that will reduce weight to at least 1/2, and down to 1/10 that of current inflation systems. A novel ingress system is also proposed that will greatly aid the boarding of survival rafts especially stressed, injured, frightened or otherwise complromise people in the water. Weight losses and fabrication advances in the inflatable portion of a r ...

  5. Active Ankle for Use with Microspine Gripper

    SBC: Square One Systems Design            Topic: S503

    Asteroids and comets are fascinating members of the celestial order. These objects provide a unique window into the composition of the original solar nebula and offer clues on how this nebula evolved into planetesimals and eventually into planets. Further, these "small solar system bodies" are thought to have served as the mechanisms that brought water to the Earth and, possibly, the o ...

  6. Hot Gas TVC For Planetary Ascent Vehicle

    SBC: Wickman Spacecraft & Propulsion Co.            Topic: S308

    A Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) uses solid rocket motors to propel soil samples into orbit, but the motors cannot provide steering. Flexseal TVC control is planned for the first stage while hydrazine thrusters will be used for spin stabilization of the second stage. This approach is heavy and results in a spinning sample container in orbit, which is difficult to recover. Wickman Spacecraft & Prop ...

  7. Physics-based Modeling of Foreign Object Damage in Ceramic Matrix Composites

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A201

    In this Phase I SBIR, Firehole Technologies will develop proof-of-concept modeling framework for a multiscale physics-based modeling tool for predicting foreign object damage in ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). We will accomplish this by adapting the core technology, multicontinuum theory (MCT), from our existing industry-leading software analysis tool, Helius:MCT, to the problem of impact damage ...

  8. Hot Gas TVC For Planetary Ascent Vehicle

    SBC: Wickman Spacecraft & Propulsion Co.            Topic: S308

    A Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) uses solid rocket motors to propel soil samples into orbit, but the motors cannot provide steering. Cold gas thrusters are used for initial steering and spin stabilization for the final stage of flight. This approach is heavy and results in a spinning sample container in orbit, which is difficult to recover. Wickman Spacecraft & Propulsion Company (WSPC) proposes inn ...

  9. Cryogenic MEMS Pressure Sensor

    SBC: WYOMING SILICON, LLC            Topic: X703

    A directly immersible cryogenic MEMS pressure sensor will be developed. Each silicon die will contain a vacuum-reference and a tent-like membrane. Offsetting thermal effects allow the device to operate over a wide temperature range. Using a patented, proven design the device is capable of continuous low-power operation and provides accuracies as low as 0.002 % of reading.

  10. VOST Flow-Control Valve

    SBC: Big Horn Valve, Inc.            Topic: X303

    Two cryogenic flow-control valves of diameters 1/2" and 2" will be built and tested. Based on cryogenically-proven Venturi Off-Set Technology (VOST) they have no stem-actuator, few moving parts, and an overall cylindrical shape. Intended to demonstrate a breakthrough in cryogenic flow control, VOST provides precise linear flow control across its entire dynamic range, holds position without power ...
