  1. Accelerated Wound Healing Device Using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) Biostimulation to Support Long Term Human Exploration of Space

    SBC: Quantum Devices Inc            Topic: B401

    As NASA gradually finalizes the strategic plans for long-term exploration of outer space including earth low orbit and other planetary system, significant health and safety risks to the astronauts also arises. One of the risks is the physical wounding, burning, and inflammation during in-space/in-flight construction, fabrication, assembly, and testing of the infrastructures designed for the explo ...

  2. Affordable High Power Density Engine Designs for Personal Air Vehicles

    SBC: GSE, Inc.            Topic: T701

    Next generation General Aviation (GA) Sport Class air vehicles limited to 1200lbs, represent the first opportunity to overhaul the FAA certification process necessary to manufacture affordable aircraft. With propulsion representing over one-third of the direct manufacturing costs of the entire aircraft, dramatic reductions in aircraft engine costs must be achieved by design, economy of scale, and ...

  3. An Integrated Heavy Fuel Piston Engine Ducted Fan Propulsion Unit for Personal Air Vehicles

    SBC: GSE, Inc.            Topic: T701

    The proposed PAVE propulsion system technology demonstration combines an innovative high-speed aero-diesel engine with a novel ducted fan assembly resulting in a low noise/cost and high performance propulsion system. The core engine makes extensive use of a novel self-injection, compression ignition/combustion system capable of high-speed operation on kerosene-based fuels without degradation due ...

  4. Aseptic Plant Culture System (APCS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: B201

    Aseptic plant culture plays a significant role in biotechnology and plant physiology research and in vegetative propagation of many plant species. The development of an Aseptic Plant Culture System would provide a mechanism for experimentation as well as for transporting and storing vegetatively propagated plant material in space. Most culture systems are passive, with no environmental monitoring ...

  5. Closed Loop Waste Processing Dryer (DRYER)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: T501

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a gravity-independent pasteurization and hot air drying process suitable for stabilization of ALS wet cabin waste, drying of crew laundry, and water recovery from water-reprocessing brines. This dryer will use an energy-efficient closed air-loop Heat Pump Desiccant dryer to remove moisture from wet starting material and a Porous Membrane Condensing Heat ...

  6. Deployable Vegetable Production System (VEGGIE)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    ORBITEC proposes to develop a deployable facility called the Vegetable Production System (VEGGIE) to produce vegetable (salad) crops to supplement prepackaged foods during long stays in space. The innovation of the VEGGIE is in providing, within a single middeck locker, a plant growing facility with a growing area of 0.5m2 to 1.0m2, a light source sufficiently intense for crop production, a compre ...

  7. Engineered Multifunction Surfaces for Fluid Handling

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: T501

    The goal of this proposal is to investigate the applicability of recent advances in plasma manufacturing and material treatment to NASA advanced life support systems. In particular we wish to examine surface treatment, material deposition, and the use of low pressure and atmospheric pressure plasma reactors as methods of creating single-piece multi-function fluid handling surfaces. Phase I will de ...

  8. Enhanced Brine Dewatering System

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X302

    The purpose of the Enhanced Brine Dewatering System (EBDS) is to provide an easily scalable means of completely recovering usable water from byproducts created by reverse osmosis water purification systems without the use of consumable wicks. Extended duration Lunar and Mars missions will require the conservation and recovery of water to allow for autonomous closed environments that in turn can dr ...

    SBIR Phase I 2007 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Generic ISIS Transport Module

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: B602

    The purpose of the Generic ISIS Transport Module is to provide a means to bring living specimens to and from orbit. In addition to living specimens, the module can be used to carry subpayloads that require precise environmental control or continuous data recording. In order to maximize the amount of science for a given mission, many biological experiments require initiation while still on the grou ...

  10. Just-in-Time Simulation Platform

    SBC: Planet, LLC            Topic: X1202

    Long-duration missions may one day present the most demanding situations ever encountered in manned spaceflight. Success will therefore depend on the knowledge and flexibility of the crew and the critical tools at their disposal. This Phase I proposes to combine intelligent tutoring with highly interactive 3D simulation software to create an on-demand situational training and operations support sy ...
