The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Protein Microarrays for Bioreactor Bioproduct Monitoring

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Rotating wall vessels (RWV) are widely used for cell culture in simulated microgravity conditions. Sensor technologies capable of monitoring the expression of proteins on a large scale (proteomics) are needed to fully exploit the unique capabilities of RWVs. This Phase II effort is part of a program to develop an advanced analytical monitoring system for quantitative detection of bioreactor biopro ...

  3. Using Expert Knowledge to Augment Simulation-Based Operational Analysis of Space Transportation Conc

    SBC: Command and Control Technologies Corp.            Topic: N/A

    This research will investigate a new technique for analyzing operation characteristics of future space transportation systems using a variation of activity based cost modeling. The unique element of the new technique is its focus on simulation modeling to translate vehicle design parameters into a set of activities and a related process map in a domain (operations characteristics of future space v ...

  4. Capillarity Driven Flow Of Propellant Liquids In Colloidal Satellite Thrusters

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop colloidal thrusters capable of producing the thrust levels required to overcome drift and maintain individual microsatellites at their assigned positions. In the Phase I research on this project, we showed that the use of capillarity driven flow of non-volatile propellant liquid through a porous matrix or wick could produce extremely stable electrosprays ...

  6. High Efficiency Digital X-ray Detector

    SBC: Constellation Technology            Topic: N/A

    Several technologies are under development to replace conventional x-ray film with digital converters. More of the penetrating x-rays are absorbed into the detector because of its thicker stopping material. Current x-ray conversion materials are limited because of their relatively low atomic number and density. The high atomic number and high density of mercuric iodide can offer superior stopping ...

  7. Electrochromic Variable Emissivity Devices for Thermal Control

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Small light-weight satellites and space vehicles under development for future NASA missions have reduced thermal mass and are rapidly affected by changes in orbital conditions, resulting in large temperature variations. Restrictions on payload weight and volume limit the usefulness of many thermal control system technologies. To address this problem, Eclipse Energy Systems, Inc. (EES) has suggeste ...

  8. Electrochromic Thermal Stabilization of Large Deployable Structures

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Solar sails use a thin reflecting membrane to deflect sunlight, converting the momentum of solar photons striking the sail to a means of spacecraft propulsion. The trajectory of the sail-powered spacecraft may be controlled by through a mechanical arrangement or through the use of an electrochromic material that changes reflectivity or transmittance in response to the application of an electric po ...
