  2. A Blubber or Dorsal Fin Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Phase II goal is to de ...

  3. 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 amp; particle analysis, small body resource identification, and/or quantification of potential small body resources (e.g., oxygen, water and other volatiles, ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. 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. Work performed during Phase I, involved development of a method and tools to address these challenges for spa ...

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

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: Z10

    This SBIR will develop a decay heat solution for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems that will significantly reduce the amount of hydrogen required to cool down an NTP system after operation. In addition, novel decay heat solutions will enable functionality beyond current NTP system concepts by enabling dual-mode power co-generation and high-Isp-reactor-powered Reaction Control System (RCS)/O ...

  9. Broadband Vector Vortices for High Contrast Coronagraphy

    SBC: Beam Engineering For Advanced Measurements Co.            Topic: S2

    The requirement of detecting nearly ten orders of magnitude smaller signal of a planet compared to the nearby star puts forward extreme challenges for coronagraphs designed for exoplanet imaging. Vector vortex waveplates (VWs) appear to be capable of providing best performance compared to other mask technologies due to their structure as thin film coatings of continuous texture that minimizes ligh ...

  10. 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 ...
