  1. Miniaturized Dynamic Pressure Sensor Arrays with Sub-Millimeter (mm) Spacing for Cross-Flow Transition Measurements

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation            Topic: A108

    The Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation (IC2) and in partnership with the University of Florida (UF) propose a microfabricated, dynamic piezoelectric pressure sensor array with sub-mm spacing to enable high temporal and spatial resolution measurements of cross-flow transition in swept-wing, supersonic aircraft research. The proposal is in response to Subtopic A1.08 Ground Testing and Measurem ...

  2. Passive Technology to Improve Criticality Control of NTP Reactors

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: H202

    This SBIR will develop passive reactor criticality control technology for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) identified by Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) in Phase 1. This technology will allow NTP systems to start up by rotating the control drums to a single predetermined location and remain there for the duration of operation for the majority of the burns associated with a Mars mission. Pas ...

  3. Instrument for Airborne Measurement of Carbonyl Sulfide

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S107

    In this Phase II SBIR program, Southwest Sciences will continue the development of small, low power instrumentation for real-time direct measurement of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) in the atmosphere, especially targeting airborne measurements. The instrument is based on a room temperature interband cascade laser (ICL) operating in the 4800 - 4900 nm region. This laser has a substantially reduced (by a ...

  4. Cloud Droplet Characterization System for Unmanned Aircraft

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: S304

    Atmospheric clouds have strong impact on the global radiative budget. Cloud's radiative properties are strongly affected by droplet size distribution and number concentration. This SBIR project will develop an innovative, compact and inexpensive droplet measurement system (DMS), which will provide in situ measurement of droplet size distribution function and droplet number concentration in clouds. ...

  5. Large-Scale Molded Silicon Oxycarbide Composite Components for Ultra-Low-Cost Lightweight Mirrors

    SBC: Semplastics EHC LLC            Topic: S203

    Next-generation telescopes need mirrors that are extremely stable, lightweight, and affordable. Semplastics has developed a novel, innovative ceramic material which is lightweight, low-cost, and ideal for application as a mirror substrate. High-thickness, high-stiffness objects with excellent dimensional stability, low density, and low coefficient of thermal expansion can be manufactured in one pi ...

  6. Accelerating Memory-Access-Limited HPC Applications via Novel Fast Data Compression

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: S501

    A fast-paced continual increase on the ratio of CPU to memory speed feeds an exponentially growing limitation for extracting performance from HPC systems. Breaking this memory wall is one of the most important challenges that the HPC community faces today. In Phase I we introduced aggressive innovations enable the injection of unprecedented acceleration into vast classes of memory-access-bound HPC ...

  7. Accident Tolerant Reactor Shutdown for NTP Systems

    SBC: Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation            Topic: H202

    In this SBIR, USNC will develop an accident tolerant reactor shut-down system for Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems that will guarantee sub-criticality in the event of a water submersion accident. Reactor shut down during a water submersion accident is a crucial issue that must be addressed in NTP systems. The technology that USNC will develop in this SBIR is a low risk design feature that ...

  8. Distributed Sensing, Computing, and Actuation Architecture for Aeroservoelastic Control

    SBC: PRIORIA ROBOTICS HOLDINGS, INC.            Topic: A101

    This proposal introduces an approach to aeroservoelastic control that provides enhanced robustness to unmodeled dynamics. The core of the approach is a processing element, designed by the embedded-systems expertise at Prioria Robotics, that provides measurement and signal processing and even control commands from localized stations throughout a structure. An architecture is formulated that utili ...

  9. Low Profile, Low Frequency, Adaptively-Tuned Acoustic Liner

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation            Topic: A102

    Conventional approaches to aircraft engine noise reduction via passive acoustic liners are limited in performance, particularly at lower frequencies, where improvements are gained through increased liner depth. Typical engine nacelle installation clearances, however, limit liner depth and prevent further improvements in low frequency noise reduction using these conventional approaches. The propos ...
