  5. Smart Multifunction Antenna for Lunar/Planetary Surface Network

    SBC: Wang Electro-Opto Corporation            Topic: O110

    NASA is planning a series of human and robotic missions to explore the Moon and later Mars. According to NASA SBIR topic O1.10, surface networks are needed for these missions. In particular, for surface networks, NASA needs reconfigurable, directionally selectable, steerable, multi-frequency switched patch or multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna arrays to be mounted on human helmets, robo ...

  6. I-RaCM: A Fully Integrated Risk and Lifecycle Cost Model

    SBC: Spaceworks Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: X102

    SpaceWorks Engineering, Inc. (SEI) proposes development of the Integrated Risk and Cost Model I-RaCM, as the innovation to meet the need for integrated cost and risk assessment early in the design of a new system. I-RaCM will integrate a diverse set of new and industry-standard tools used for life cycle cost, operations, reliability modeling, and estimation of technology development costs. The I-R ...

  7. High-Density Diffraction Imaging and Non-Imaging Grating Elements for EUV and X-ray Spectroscopy Fabricated by DUV Reduction Photolithography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: S404

    Diffraction gratings are powerful tools for the spectral analysis of electromagnetic radiation. Properties of gratings are determined by available fabrication means – which have not changed substantially in 50 years. Modern photolithography, now approaching nanometer resolution, may revolutionize the way many gratings are made and, through greater design flexibility, how gratings function. Over ...

  8. Microwave Powered Gravitationally Independent Medical Grade Water Generation

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: X1103

    Development of an innovative microwave-based continuous flow sterilization system for the energy efficient gravitationally independent production of Medical Grade Water (MGW) is proposed. During the Phase I, microwaves were very efficiently coupled to a single-phase flowing water stream using an antenna based microwave sterilization chamber that rapidly heated water to temperatures well above nor ...

  9. Hydrogen Recovery by ECR Plasma Pyrolysis of Methane

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: X1201

    Development of a microgravity and hypogravity compatible microwave plasma methane pyrolysis reactor is proposed to recover hydrogen which is lost as methane in the conversion of carbon dioxide to water via the Sabatier process. This will close the hydrogen loop which currently requires 50% resupply. Efficient production of hydrogen from methane was conclusively demonstrated during Phase I using m ...
