  1. Ceramic-Metal Interfaces by Functional Grading

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: A107

    Glacigen Materials proposes a novel technique for producing large-area sheets of functionally graded materials (FGM), which yield robust ceramic-metal interfaces capable of withstanding harsh environments that include high temperatures. Propulsion systems offer some of the harshest possible design conditions from a materials perspective and the demands placed on engineering materials will become m ...

  2. ERASMUS: Food Contact Safe Plastics Recycler and 3D Printer System

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H1401

    A key goal of the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) from 2012 is to utilize the ISS for developing the systems and protocols necessary to humans to venture beyond low Earth orbit for extended durations, and with the push from Congress in 2015 to build a deep space habitat for a Mars mission by 2018, the goals of HEOMD are increasingly important to meet. The ERASMUS techn ...

  3. Solid State Oxygen Concentrator and Compressor

    SBC: Sustainable Innovations, LLC            Topic: H303

    Sustainable Innovations has developed a novel solid state technology for gas separation and will be applying it for the first time to meet a critical life support function: to develop an oxygen concentration module that minimize the hardware mass, volume, and power footprint while still performing at the required NASA capabilities. The Sustainable Innovations Oxygen Concentration Module is an exte ...

  4. Novel, Vacuum-Regenerable Trace Contaminant Control System for Advanced Spacesuit Applications

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: H402

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes a new material paradigm for the Trace Contaminant Control System (TCCS) based upon its novel adsorbent nanomaterials that have high surface area and can be designed to achieve uniquely-targeted sorbent properties, including increasing affinity to remove specific contaminants, minimizing competitive sorption with water and CO2, and achieving vacuum regenera ...

  5. Modular Advanced Networked Telerobotic Interface System (MANTIS)

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H601

    With the goal to reduce astronaut time required to operate experiments on the ISS and advance automated and telerobotic technology, TUI proposes to collaborate with NanoRacks to develop a "Modular Advanced Networked Telerobotic Interface System" (MANTIS) that will integrate TUI?s existing KRAKEN robotic arm in a payload on the ISS. The MANTIS payload will reduce crew member burden to operate exper ...

  6. Flexible Integrated System Health Management for Sustainable Habitats using TEAMS

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: H601

    QSI proposes to field a "Flexible" ISHM Solution for Sustainable Habitats utilizing the TEAMS Toolset and concomitant model-based and data-driven diagnostic/prognostic reasoning technologies to enable the habitat crew to obtain crucial alerts that affect the operation of critical habitat subsystems, as well as provide decision support in the selection of appropriate corrective actions. The solutio ...

  7. Integrating ISHM with Flight Avionics Architectures for Cyber-Physical Space Systems

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: H604

    Substantial progress has been made by NASA in integrating flight avionics and ISHM with well-defined caution and warning system, however, the scope of ACAW alerting and response systems is still limited to a single failure response mapping. While the approach of single Caution And Warning (CW) message mapped to a single response procedure may be sufficient for simple cases, for a well-connected sy ...

  8. Metal Advanced Manufacturing Bot-Assisted Assembly (MAMBA) Process

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H702

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop the Metal Advanced Manufacturing Bot-Assisted Assembly (MAMBA) Process, a robotically managed metal press and milling system used to create precision parts on orbit. This manufacturing process provides an alternative to 3D printing metals in space, which is difficult due to space environment or print quality issues. Instead, the MAMBA-Process rel ...

  9. Utilization of the International Space Station to Verify Photonic Devices for Enhanced Space-Based Atmospheric Profiling

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: H801

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort is completion of Technical Readiness Level (TRL) 5, component validation in a relevant environment, of the key photonics devices for a diode-based, locked wavelength, seed laser system currently being developed for space-based, High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) measurements. To achieve this goal, AdvR is proposing to the utilize the Materials International S ...

  10. Portable Spectroscopic Scanning Electron Microscope on ISS: In-Situ Nanostructural/Chemical Analysis for Critical Vehicle Systems

    SBC: MOCHII, INC            Topic: H801

    We will construct a novel field-portable miniature analytical electron microscope (EM+EDS) called Mochii "S" for in situ sensing in harsh/remote environments such as orbital and deep space flight. This lightweight, ISS-ready nano-analyzer will provide direct observation and chemical identification of the fine structure and correlated function of materials, contaminants, and biological agents down ...
