  2. High Temperature Rechargeable Battery Development

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: S305

    This small business innovation research is intended to develop and proof the concept of a highly efficient, high temperature rechargeable battery for supporting Venus exploration missions. The proposed battery will be built upon a tubular, alkali metal ion-conducting, highly refractor, beta"-alumina-solid-electrolyte (BASE) sandwiched between an alkali metal anode and a metal salt cathode. In Ph ...

  4. Spectroscopic Dosimeter

    SBC: Merril Corporation of Utah, dba MSI Photogenics            Topic: X1403

    Analysis of Phase I test data demonstrates that the Photogenics Spectroscopic Dosimeter will detect neutron energies from 0.8 up to 600 MeV. The detector efficiencies in the energy region of interest to NASA of 0.5 to 150 MeV were predicted by MCNP-X models. These models were partially confirmed by the tests at the EAL and LANSCE, with a high confidence in the data for the 1-14 MeV range and a co ...

  5. Development of a Direct Carbon Fuel Cell for Power and Fuels Cogeneration Directly from Plastic Trash

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: X303

    This small business innovation research is intended to develop a simple processing concept based-on an advanced direct carbon fuel cell (DCFC) technology enabling directly converting plastic trash into life support consumables (such as H2, CO2 and H2O) and electricity simultaneously, for supporting Lunar ISRU development. The proposed innovation involves the areas associated with the advanced DCF ...

  6. FIR Detectors/Cameras Based on GaN and Si Field-Effect Devices

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: S104

    SETI proposes to develop GaN and Si based multicolor FIR/THz cameras with detector elements and readout, signal processing electronics integrated on a single chip. The active detector elements will be submicron gated channels with 2 dimensional electron gas (2DEG). The devices with gated 2DEG (commonly known as field-effect transistors) respond to the incoming FIR radiation due to the rectificat ...

  9. The Cryogenic Impact Resistant Evaluation of Composite Materials for Use in Composite Pressure Vessels with an Additional Cryogenic Bonding Scope

    SBC: Hypercomp Engineering, Inc            Topic: T801

    The intent of the proposed effort is to investigate the detailed composite material performance characteristics after being subjected to cryogenic temperatures and impact damage. HyPerComp Engineering, Inc. (HEI) and Utah State University (USU) further propose to correlate these characteristics to composite overwrapped pressure vessels (COPVs) and demonstrate the correlation through actual COPV t ...
