  1. Fabrication of T-SOFC via Freeze Cast Methods for Space and Portable Applications

    SBC: Yanhai Power LLC            Topic: H801

    As NASA space missions become longer in duration the need for high efficiency power generator sets that can operate on NASA logistical fuel become critical. Historically NASA has used fuel cells as part of the energy solution. Space bound energy and power systems require rapid start and stop cycle times as well as high power densities. The high operational efficiency, coupled with the use of logi ...

  2. Simulating Nonlinear Dynamics of Deployable Space Structures

    SBC: MotionPort LLC            Topic: H502

    To support NASA's vital interest in developing much larger solar array structures over the next 20 years, MotionPort LLC's Phase I SBIR project will strengthen validated modeling analysis and simulation techniques by developing a vertical application to simulate the nonlinear dynamics of the various stages of deployable space structures. This application which will support RecurDyn Multi-Body Dyn ...

  3. Natural Touch Interaction for Virtual Reality and Teleoperation via Ungrounded Tactile Shear Feedback

    SBC: TACTICAL HAPTICS, INC.            Topic: H2001

    The proposed research innovation will create a low-cost, intuitive means for people to have multi-fingered interaction with Robonaut 2 and training simulations via tactile shear feedback. This work builds on the PI's prior university research. Tactile shear feedback imparts friction and shear forces to the user's hand via sliding plates that are built into the handle of the grasped device. These ...

  5. Advanced Li/S Batteries Based on Novel Composite Cathode and Electrolyte System

    SBC: STORAGENERGY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: H802

    Energy storage devices in many aerospace applications are facing unique challenges. Most of such applications, including remote surveillance, satellites, reusable launch vehicles, etc. depend on high-performance, highly specialized batteries. NASA desires high specific energy batteries that are safe for human exploration missions. Since none exist today, they must be developed. Storagenergy Techno ...

  6. Wideband, Low-power Multi-mode MMIC Radar Transceivers with Phase Control and Integrated Baseband Signal Processing

    SBC: Linear Signal, LLC            Topic: S102

    NASA has numerous missions that involve radar and radiometry. In the past, the practice has been to build each system as a one-off program, which makes MMIC design unattractive from a cost perspective. In an era of reduced budgets and the need for higher efficiencies both in R & D cost reduction and performance, a better approach is needed. Linear Signal proposes a wideband analog blockset app ...

  7. Novel Low Cost Booster Propulsion Development and Demonstration

    SBC: COMPOSITEX, INC.            Topic: T101

    The proposed contract effort is for the design, development and proof-of-concept demontration testing of a low cost, pressure-fed liquid rocket booster propulsion system concept. The contract focus will be on four key component technologies in the booster system; (1)composite propellant tanks, (2)pump-fed propellant heat exchanger, (3)self-cooled engine with altitude-compensating nozzle, and (4)a ...

  8. Development of a Robust, Highly Efficient Oxygen-Carbon Monoxide Cogeneration System

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: X102

    This small business innovation research is intended to develop a long-life, highly efficient O2-CO cogeneration system to support NASA's endeavors to pursue extraterrestrial exploration (Moon, Mars, and Asteroids/Phobos). The cogeneration system will be built using a Tubular, Negative Electrode-supported Solid-Oxide Electrolysis Cell (Tune-SOEC) employing MSRI's most promising degradation-resista ...

    SBIR Phase II 2012 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Three-Dimensional Backscatter X-Ray Imaging System

    SBC: ARIBEX            Topic: T701

    The NASA application requires a system that can generate 3D images of non-metallic material when access is limited to one side of the material. The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing and build a new, practical, potentially portable, battery operated, self-contained Compton x-ray backscatter 3D imaging system by using a specially designed automated rotational ...
