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. Automation of Health Management, Troubleshooting and Recovery in Lunar Outpost

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X101

    The overall Phase-II goal is to develop the technologies and tools that can aid the automation of operation by providing intelligent decision support in situations when a mission plan needs alteration due to an event(s). The effort targets not only developing the algorithms, but also to implement them on QSI's TEAMS platform; this will transition the technologies into a useful tool for the A4 ...

  2. Novel Catalytic Reactor for CO2 Reduction via Sabatier Process

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: X201

    A novel short contact time Microlith Sabatier reactor system for CO2 reduction offers a significant advance in support of manned spaceflight. Compared to current and prospective alternatives (including microchannels), the reactor will be much smaller and lighter, more energy and resource efficient, and more durable. In the spacecraft cabin atmosphere revitalization system (ARS), the utilization o ...

  3. Hydrogen Recovery System

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: T1001

    Rocket test operations at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC) result in substantial quantities of hydrogen gas that is flared from the facility and helium gas that is vented. One way to save on the cost of test operations is to recover these gases using an electrochemical system. This Hydrogen Recovery System (HRS) selectively removes hydrogen from the mixed stream, leaving behind high-value helium. ...

  4. Probabilistic Remaining Useful Life Prediction of Composite Aircraft Components

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: A112

    A composite fatigue damage assessment and risk informed prognosis toolkit will be developed by enhancing and integrating existing solution modules within a probabilistic analysis framework. This tool will for the first time be able to address concurrently both microcracking induced stiffness degradation and cyclic loading induced delamination crack growth without remeshing. A physics-based determi ...

  5. Laser Stethoscope for Use in Noisy Spacecraft Environments

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: X1201

    Auscultation, or listening to internal sounds made by the body of a patient, is an important tool in medical diagnostics. Heart, lung, intestine, and circulatory function can be assessed through careful listening. There are numerous situations, however, where the faint sounds collected using an ordinary stethoscope are overwhelmed by ambient noise. Such is the case in spacecraft, where room is ...

  6. Automation for Vehicle and Crew Operations

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X601

    Modern space systems such as the International Space Station (ISS) and the proposed Constellation vehicles and habitats are complex entities with hundreds of thousands of individual telemetry items. Monitoring the health of these systems, troubleshooting their faults, developing maintenance plan and schedule, and aiding to restore system functionality are key tasks that flight controllers must per ...

  7. Optoelectronic Infrastructure for RF/Optical Phased Arrays

    SBC: ODIS , Inc.            Topic: O101

    Optoelectronic integrated holds the key to higher performance, reduced mass and radiation-hard space systems. A special need is increased flexibility of phased arrays for communication and detection. Currently RF arrays use ferrite waveguide elements for phase shifting which are both bulky and lossy with a phase shift limit of 360º . Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) arrays currently use a s ...

  8. A Lithium-Air Battery with a High Energy Air Cathode

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: X1204

    This project will advance an efficient and lightweight energy storage device for Oxygen Concentrators by developing a high specific energy lithium-air cell. Specifically the project advances high specific energy cells by focusing on the catalysts in the cathode and anode protection of our existing cells under various oxygen atmospheres for NASA applications. Our high-energy air cathodes will be im ...

  9. Advanced Passive Liquid Feed PEM Electrolyzer

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: X801

    Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) water electrolyzers have undergone continuous development for the generation of oxygen and hydrogen for commercial, military and space applications since the 1970's. Unfortunately, conventional technology developed over this time period has required a complex balance of plant that adds to the overall weight of the system package. Research in the past two decad ...

  10. ELID Grinding of Large Aspheric Optics

    SBC: Flemming Tinker Inc.            Topic: S205

    Large aperture aspheric optics are among the most susceptible optical surfaces to the accumulation of periodic surface artifacts during fabrication. Periodic features are created during the manufacturing process and lead to significant degradation in imaging performance. Most research on the topic addresses polishing, and in particular smoothing of periodic features. Our proposal addresses prevent ...
