  1. Transonic Stability Test of Variable Drag Ballute

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: A702

    Low cost, reliable atmospheric entry technology is needed to support NASA cargo recovery from the ISS, earth return of small payloads, planetary aerocapture, and planetary probe missions. Fixed aeroshields and winged structures are well proven, but are not appropriate for many missions due to envelope, weight, and cost constraints. Inflatable ballute technology offers a low weight, cost effectiv ...

  2. Panoramic Stereoscopic Video System for Remote-Controlled Robotic Space Operations

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: F502

    This Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of providing panoramic stereoscopic images for remote-controlled robotic space operations using three fixed-position cameras. Remote-controlled robot operations are an important element in orbital and planetary space missions. Advanced display systems can greatly enhance the effectiveness of these operations. In the system proposed here, hum ...

  5. Active Gas Regenerative Liquefier

    SBC: CryoFuel Systems, Inc.            Topic: F302

    We offer a novel liquefier that has the potential to simultaneously increase thermodynamic efficiency and significantly reduce complexity. The ?active gas regenerative liquefier? (AGRL) uses an array of discrete micro compressor-expander units in a periodic heat exchanger to accomplish extremely efficient liquefaction of hydrogen and other cryogenic fluids. When an array of these units are comb ...

  6. Feasibility Demonstration of a Multi-Cylinder Stirling Convertor with a Duplex Linear Alternator

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: F309

    Stirling Technology Company (STC) proposes to integrate an existing Multi-Cylinder Free-Piston Stirling Engine (MPFPSE) with innovative compact linear alternators. Future manned and unmanned scientific and exploration missions will require substantially more electric power from nuclear, solar, and other heat sources than existing launch-capable systems can effectively provide. A scalable, cost-eff ...

  7. Miniature Flat Plasma Spectrometer

    SBC: NanoSciences Corporation/NanoSystems Inc            Topic: S101

    This phase I SBIR project will develop a micromachined charged particle energy collimator plate to be used as a principle component in a micromachined plasma spectrometer. The construction of a micromachined device will enable plasma spectrometers to be easily accommodated into NASA?s strategy for using many small nanosatellite spacecraft to perform scientific measurements. A novel high aspect r ...

  8. On-Demand Urine Analyzer


    This Small Business Innovation Research program will develop a novel surface-enhanced Raman (SER) sensor that will perform real-time chemical analysis of urine. It will provide key physiologic information to monitor astronaut health and indicate appropriate preventative treatment. The Phase I program will demonstrate feasibility by establishing the ability of sol-gel chemistry to both select key ...

    SBIR Phase I 2004 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Lab-on-a-chip Astrobiology Analyzer


    The overall goal of this program (through Phase III) is to develop an astrobiology analyzer to measure chemical signatures of life in extraterrestrial settings. The analyzer will employ a lab-on-a-chip to extract biochemical signatures from soil or water samples and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy to detect and identify the signatures. The goal of the Phase I program is to demonstrate feasib ...

  10. Collaborative Object Framework for Adaptive System Optimization

    SBC: TEAMVISION CORP.            Topic: F102

    TeamVision proposes that we research the feasibility of incorporating an adaptive object based optimization system into an existing multi-user object oriented application integration framework. Successful implementation of such a system would save NASA and industry billions of dollars annually by reducing significantly the false starts, redundant effort, long lead times and globally non-optimal s ...
