  1. Bifunctional Regenerative Electrochemical Air Transformation for Human Environments

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: T6

    The proposed  Bifunctional Regenerative Electrochemical Air Transformation for Human Environments (BREATHE) for life support and habitation is part of the atmosphere revitalization equipment necessary to provide and maintain a livable environment within the pressurized cabin of crewed spacecraft. Sustainable Innovations (SI) has developed a novel solid state technology for gas compression bas ...

  2. Resilience-Based Optimization of Space Systems

    SBC: Magnin, Michael            Topic: H6

    With future missions of increasing complexity, duration, distance, and uncertainty, there has been a growing need for methods and tools that can permit the effective formation of early stage conceptual designs that are not only cost-effective, but also productive and resilient to failures. Current approaches are mostly tailored to evaluating independent systems but do not necessarily scale well to ...

  3. Improved X-Ray Filters with Al-Sc Alloys and Nanoparticle-Doped Polyimide

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: S1

    The next generation of detectors for high energy observatories needs a significant improvement in filter technology, as identified in the SBIR solicitation and as a PCOS technology gap. We propose a two-fold change in the state of the art of thin film EUV and x-ray filters, using Al-Sc alloy in place of Al and adding Au nanoparticles to polyimide. Al-Sc alloys show smaller grain sizes that should ...

  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. Novel Technologies for Efficient NTP Reactor Decay Heat Removal and Utilization

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: Z10

    In this SBIR, Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) will investigate and develop a set of novel technologies to minimize the amount of hydrogen needed for reactor decay heat removal after the shutdown of Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems. Decay heat is the energy deposited during the decay of radioactive fission products after the reactor shuts down. Its management is a critical issue for N ...

  9. Low Cost Nano and Micro Satellite Launch Stage and Automated Hypersonic Test Platform

    SBC: HyperSciences, Inc            Topic: Z9

    HyperSciences, Inc. is proposing is a robust, cost effective, automated hypersonic launch system and encapsulated projectile bus  capable of delivering small payloads to altitudes as high as 100Km. HyperSciences uses our proven, existing and patented Ram accelerator-based launch architecture and in-ground launch site based at Spaceport America to launch payloads at greater than Mach 5. This c ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. AstroPorter

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: Z5

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop a collaborative robotics platform, AstroPorter, for multi-agent coordinated tasks on the International Space Station (ISS). TUI will develop an AstroPorter payload for Astrobee to perform collaborative robotics tasks with TUI’s MANTIS - an EXPRESS Rack payload with a robotic arm for telerobotic operation of experiments on the ISS. AstroPorter ...
