The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Enabling High Efficiency I/O Performance on High-End Computing Systems and Data Stores with HDF5

    SBC: Akadio, Inc.            Topic: S5

    Akadio proposes to develop H5 Hermes, an enhancement to HDF5 to enable high efficiency I/O performance for HDF5 applications that perform many related reads and writes across large data structures. Such I/O operations are often a serious bottleneck for large scale simulations, resulting in I/O bottlenecks that significantly degrade overall performance.There are existing HDF5-based solutions simila ...

  2. A Compact, Lightweight Electrically Driven Propellant Pump with High Pressure Rise

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S4

    Reducing the inert mass of propulsion systems in sample return spacecraft will reduce their launch costs and increase opportunity for these missions. Compared to a pressure-fed system, a propellant pump-fed system can significantly reduce overall propulsion system mass, especially for a system with high propellant throughput. To address this need, we propose to develop a compact, lightweight elect ...

  5. A High Speed Tunable Etalon for LIDAR

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: S1

     A solid state yet rapidly tunable filter based on liquid crystal (LC) etalon technology is designed by determination of minimized LC birefringence response time in an optimized electric field. The key technological innovation is the use of liquid crystal to tune the etalon.  While this type of etalon has been in use for many years, a development effort is undertaken to reduce the time i ...

  8. Autonomous Modular Digital Controllers for Long Duration Space Flights

    SBC: AK Circuit Corporation            Topic: S3

    An intelligent power management and distribution system is an essential component of future NASA long duration flights in deep space. The current power management system for manned NASA missions in lower earth orbit depends heavily on operators in the ground control center. As mankind ventures into deep space, the existing Power Management and Distribution (PMAD) system will not be able to respond ...

  9. Curved Microchannel Plates and Collimators for Spaceflight Mass Spectrometers

    SBC: INCOM, INC.            Topic: S1

    This proposal will develop curved microchannel plates (MCPs) and collimators for spaceflight instrumentation. The curvature will improve measurement quality and volume utilization by allowing the detector to conform to the physical geometry of the instrument. For example, an instrument may view the space environment in 360 degrees of azimuth with cylindrical symmetry. In this case, a cylindrical M ...

  10. Advancing Hyperspectral Imaging through IntegratedCompressive Sensing / Inpainting via Machine Learning


    We propose to use advanced algorithms for compressive sensing (CS) using inpainting which utilize machine learning to improve the capability of existing or novel hyperspectral imaging (HSI) systems. These approaches will allow for an order of magnitude improvement in the frame acquisition speed of existing detectors at a high compression ratio with no loss of resolution, while at the same time per ...
