  1. Ultra-Low Noise Quad Photoreceiver for Space Based Laser Interferometric Gravity Wave Detection

    SBC: DISCOVERY SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: S105

    We propose to design and develop 2x2 quad p-i-n InGaAs Photoreceivers having the following characteristics: (a) Active area diameter 0.75 mm; (b) Wavelength coverage 850 to 1700 nm, with responsivity of 0.7 A/W at 1064 nm; (c) Bandwidth up to 20 MHz for the individual quadrant; (d) Group Delay < 6 degrees/MHz; (e) Photodiode capacitance for individual quadrant of

  2. Individualized Fatigue Meter for Space Exploration

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: X11

    To ensure mission success, astronauts must maintain a high level of performance even when work-rest schedules result in chronic sleep restriction and circadian misalignment, both of which contribute to fatigue and performance deficits unless effective countermeasures are used. We are proposing to build an Individualized Fatigue Meter that incorporates light inputs, sleep history, work schedule inf ...

  3. Integrated Component and System Analyses of Instabilities in Test Stands


    Instabilities associated with the operation of liquid rocket propulsion systems and test facilities usually manifest themselves as structural vibrations and may cause structural damage. While the source of the instability is directly related to the performance of a component such as a turbopump, the associated pressure fluctuations as they propagate through the system have the potential to amplify ...

  4. Superior Speech Acquisition and Robust Automatic Speech Recognition for Integrated Spacesuit Audio Systems

    SBC: WEVOICE, Inc.            Topic: O302

    Astronauts suffer from poor dexterity of their hands due to the clumsy spacesuit gloves during Extravehicular Activity (EVA) operations and NASA has had a widely recognized but unmet need for novel human machine interface technologies to facilitate data entry, communications, and robots or intelligent systems control. The objective of this research project is to develop a speech human interface th ...

  5. Calibration of 3D Woven Preform Design Code for CMC Materials

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: A201

    Mechanical and thermal performance of CMC components benefit from low part count, integrally fabricated designs of 3D woven reinforcement. The advantages of these designs include the elimination for the need for post-fabrication mechanical attachment and the higher interlaminar properties offered by the through thickness paths of the fibers within the 3D preform architectures. The specific innova ...

  6. Cryogenic Fluid Transfer Components Using Single Crystal Piezoelectric Actuators

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: X702

    Cryogenic fluid transfer components using single crystal piezoelectric actuators are proposed to enable low thermal mass, minimal heat leak, low power consumption and fast response for cryogenic fluid transfer and handling systems to support NASA Lunar Lander, Ground Operations, Ares, and Lunar Surface Systems programs. Single crystal piezoelectrics are attractive because they exhibit 3 to 5 times ...

  7. Extreme Environment Damage Index and Accumulation Model for CMC Laminate Fatigue Life Prediction

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: A201

    Materials Research & Design (MR&D) is proposing in the SBIR Phase II an effort to develop a tool for predicting the fatigue life of C/SiC composite laminates, which incorporates mechanical loading at any minimum stress to maximum stress ratio (i.e., R value), at room and elevated temperatures, in either inert or oxidizing environments. The success of this effort would represent a significant stat ...

  8. High Capacity and High Voltage Composite Oxide Cathode for Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: T301

    Currently used cathode materials in energy storage devices do not fully satisfy the power density and energy density requirements for NASA's exploration missions. Working in collaboration with our STTR partner at University of California – San Diego, we propose to develop layered-layered composite cathode materials that offer superior performance over commercially available positive electrode mat ...

  9. Piezoelectric Structural Microensor Technology for Extreme Environments (> 1800 F)

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: A201

    High temperature piezoelectric crystal (HTPC) sensors are desired for future propulsion component structure health monitoring, operating parameters optimization, turbine engine control and health monitoring, as well as improving performance and maintainability of power production facilities and other rotary combustion engines. Recently discovered high temperature piezoelectrics showed stable piezo ...

  10. A Compact, Efficient Pyrolysis/Oxidation System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery in Space

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: X203

    Pyrolysis processing can be used in near term missions for volume reduction, water recovery (drying), stabilization, and enhanced water and oxygen recovery through thermochemical reactions. For longer term missions, the added benefits include production of fuel, multi-purpose carbon, and reactants for in-situ resource utilization (ISRU). The objective of the Phase I SBIR program was to demonstrate ...
