  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. Collaborative Trajectory Options Planning for the Flight Deck

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A3

    We develop Flight Deck (FD) and Airline Operational Control (AOC) Decision Support Tools (DSTs) for strategic guidance to pilots for mitigating encounters with en route weather hazards.  Implemented on either Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) or Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs), the system is designed to increase the likelihood of Air Traffic Control (ATC) approv ...

  3. Virtual Marketplace for Urban Air Mobility

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A3

    We build a software system that executes a virtual marketplace for urban air mobility (UAM).  The virtual marketplace will serve the traveling public with an on-demand system that connects multi-modal modes of transportation in a competitive marketplace environment utilizing forward auctions and reverse auctions to provide cost effective transportation of people and goods.  The virtual m ...

  4. Nanophotonic and Capillary Assisted Water Recovery

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: H3

    The current generation of spacecraft and terrestrial water recovery technologies are often prone to failures caused by biofouling and mineral scaling, which can clog mechanical systems and degrade the performance of capillary-based technologies. These failures require expensive and time-consuming maintenance and resupply, and the technologies are therefore limited to environments where these resou ...

  5. Advanced Passive Phase Separations for Space Exploration

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H8

    Nearly all fluid systems aboard spacecraft are, or become, multiphase fluid systems, whether by design or default. Unfortunately, we still do not possess ample understanding of low-g fluid phenomena to assure performance and avoid system failure. Though inadequate fluid system design can lead to disastrous consequences, for the most part, and for life support systems in general, precious crew time ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Single Photon Counting LIDAR Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S1

    To address NASA’s need for next-generation spaceborne lidar systems for aerosol, cloud, and ocean profiling, Voxtel is developing a low-noise high-efficiency high-dynamic-range photon-counting (HiP) sensor. The HiP sensor is based on silicon single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) technology and is capable of both atmospheric and ocean profiling, essentially enabling the first-ever ocean-profil ...

  10. 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, ...
