  1. Low Power Miniature Colloidal High Vacuum Pump

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: S106

    Shortly after NASA made the most recent planetary science SBIR topics public, we began discussing the possibility of translating our experience in maximizing momentum transfer by specialized electrospray jets into a vacuum for micro-satellite propulsion as a new alternative to the diffusion pump concept. Indeed, what is currently being done for "colloidal propulsion" parallels the requirements for ...

  2. ARACMO: Advanced Regolith Anchoring for Cable-assisted Mobility

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: S402

    To enable future robotic exploration systems to have greater mobility capabilities on difficult terrain such as craters, cliffs, gullies, and skylights, Tethers Unlimited proposes to develop the "Advanced Regolith Anchoring for Cable-assisted Mobility" (ARACMO) Anchor. This device can launch hundreds of meters from a rover vehicle, self-right, autonomously anchor, and support high loads through t ...

  3. VORTEX Gimbal

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: S306

    To overcome the communication gap to Venus, TUI proposes to develop the Venus or Titan Exploratory (VORTEX) Gimbal to point a meter scale diameter, high gain antenna. The VORTEX Gimbal is a highly advanced adaptation of the COBRA gimbal developed by TUI for the nanosatellite market. The VORTEX Gimbal will be capable of providing performance characteristics that are unmatched in the current high-fi ...

  4. Highly Efficient Electrochemical Cryogenic Purge Gas Recovery System

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: H1001

    Ongoing rocket test operations at NASA Stennis Space Center (SSC) result in substantial quantities of hydrogen gas that is flared from the facility in addition to valuable helium gas that is vented to the atmosphere. One method that can dramatically reduce the cost of test operations is to recover these gases using an electrochemical process. A Hydrogen Recovery System (HRS), which has recently b ...

  5. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...
