  1. Pediatric Head Models for Improved Imaging of Neurological Development

    SBC: Electrical Geodesics, Inc.            Topic: 101

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant While it is well known that the brain undergoes rapid developmental changes from birth to early childhood remarkably little is understood about the relationship between changes in brain size and composition and cognitive development Yet several potentially debilitating neurocognitive disorders are a consequence of delays or abnormalities in brain development ...

  2. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  3. Integration of Complex Geometry, 3D Woven Preforms via Innovative Stitching Technique

    SBC: T.E.A.M., INC.            Topic: H701

    Thick, 3D woven carbon/phenolic composites offer potential improvement over legacy thermal protection systems (TPS) for re-entry vehicle heat shield applications. However due to the scale and complexity of typical re-entry vehicle structures, it is likely that multiple 3D woven panels would need to laid up to create the overall heat shield, creating a potential weak spots at the panel joints. ...

  4. Airline Operational Control (AOC)/UAS Ground Control Station (GCS) Collaboration

    SBC: Innovation Laboratory, Inc., The            Topic: A201

    We propose to form a network and a set of tools that will create a shared situation awareness with Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Ground Control Stations (GCSs) and airline dispatchers at Airline Operations Centers (AOCs). Our solution is motivated by the Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) community in commercial aviation, where the CDMnet was created back in 1997 to facilitate collaboration be ...

  5. A High Performance Chemical Simulation Preprocessor and Source Code Generator

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: S501

    Numerical simulations of chemical kinetics are a critical component of aerospace research, Earth systems research, and energy research. These simulations enable a better understanding of the evolution of chemical species over time in domains as diverse as climate and weather prediction, combustion simulation, and air quality prediction. The time-to-solution in these simulations can be improved by ...

  6. Advancing High Energy Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: Z102

    Lithium-Ion batteries have been a main source of energy for many aerospace applications over the past decade. Future space missions are facing a number of challenging requirements, including significant increase in specific energy, approaching 500 Wh/kg, and energy density of 700 Wh/l at cell level. Compared to state-of-the-art technology today, a reduction in mass and volume are necessary, along ...

  7. Flexible, High Performance Microlens Array Technologies for Integral Field Spectrographs

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S103


    SBIR Phase II 2014 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. Monolithic Gradient Index Phase Plate Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S204

    The "piston errors" and aberrations of the mirror segments used in large telescopes, are typically measured with on-board optical instruments, usually a dispersed Hartman sensor (DHS) and/or dispersed fringe sensor (DFS). Calibrating and testing of the wavefront sensors are typically performed using custom-built fused silica phase plate arrays. The manufacture and assembly of each custom phase pla ...

  9. Passive Collapsible Contingency Urinal for Human Spaceflight

    SBC: Irpi LLC            Topic: H1002

    Acute challenges are faced by the designers of fluid transport systems for spacecraft because of the persistently unfamiliar and unforgiving low-g environment. However, with modern design tools capillarity can used to passively perform critical life support functions, increasing reliability, while enabling new device functionality. Such systems are directly tied to critical life support systems: i ...

  10. Scaleable, High Efficiency Microchannel Sabatier Reactor

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H101

    A Microchannel Sabatier Reactor System (MSRS) consisting of cross connected arrays of isothermal or graded temperature reactors is proposed. The reactor array enables nearly complete single pass carbon dioxide reduction using the Sabatier reaction, allowing efficient recovery of oxygen from in situ carbon dioxide resources on Mars or other Near Earth Objects. Arrays of microchannel reactors with ...
