  1. High Surface Area Iridium Anodes and Melt Containers for Molten Oxide Electrolysis

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: X302

    Direct electrochemical reduction of molten regolith is the most attractive method of oxygen production on the lunar surface, because no additional chemical reagents are needed. The process is proven on a laboratory scale, but the cathode-anode system and melt containers need to be improved for practical applications. The electrochemical processing of molten oxides requires high surface area inert ...

  2. Multi-Use Coating for Abrasion Prevention, Wear Protection, and Lunar Dust Removal

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: X502

    The deleterious effects of lunar dust, typically less than 50 µm in diameter, have to be addressed prior to establishing a human base and long duration human presence on the surface of the moon. These effects include abrasion of seals, gaskets, motors, actuators, gimbals, bearings, blocking of optical windows, and coating of thermal control surfaces and solar panels with lunar dust. Negative phy ...

  3. Radiation Mitigation Methods for Reprogrammable FPGA

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: X103

    NASA has been tasked to develop new and advanced capabilities to support both future manned and robotic missions to the lunar and Martian surfaces. It is the purpose of this program to develop advanced avionics, software, and information technologies for exploration missions. In particular, NASA is concerned with the extreme radiation present on the lunar surface, Martian surface, and in deep sp ...

  4. Combined Cycle Propulsion Integration

    SBC: GoHypersonic Inc.            Topic: AF073091

    The two main objectives of this proposal are to refine the combined cycle engine capabilities in GHIs design tool, Eco, and to flight test a combined cycle powered vehicle concept designed for flight in the Mach 0-4 range.  Tools will be created to permit high-fidelity conceptual designs, including viscous CFD-based optimization of the propulsive ducts and vehicle flowlines.  Our team will use t ...

  5. Dual Polarization Multi-Frequency Antenna Array

    SBC: SPECTRA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: S102

    NASA employs various passive microwave and millimeter-wave instruments, such as spectral radiometers, for a wide range of remote sensing applications from measurements of the Earth's surface and atmosphere to cosmic background emission. These instruments such as the HIRAD (Hurricane Intensity Radiometer), SFMR (Stepped Frequency Microwave Radiometer), and LRR (Lightweight Rainfall Radiometer), pro ...

  6. Creating Resilient Structures with Polymer Coatings

    SBC: Optechnology, Inc.            Topic: 819S

      The first goal of our team is to design and develop highly ductile cement mortar composites using novel patent applied for technology which has been shown to produce materials with high energy absorption, decreased modulus, higher tensile strength, and greater toughness than standard or ultra high performance concretes or fibercements. These materials will be used to produce NEMA Class ...

  7. Next Generation Energy Efficient Supplemental Lighting for Plant Production

    SBC: CYCLOPTICS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 813

    Greenhouse farming is an absolute necessity to revive and create local agriculture industries in northern climatically challenged regions with short growing seasons. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) has made significant strides in greenhouse farming technology. State of the art CEA farming utilizes direct control of lighting, temperature and CO2 in a hydroponics environment. Key advantages ...

  8. Demand Driven Healthcare Scheduling using Flexible Shifts and Monte-Carlo Simulat

    SBC: ACME EXPRESS, INC.            Topic: NINR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The shortage of nurses and medical technologists is accelerating. Shortages can be reduced by scheduling staff to precisely meet the hour-by-hour demand for medical service. Think of bank teller scheduling, where more staff are scheduled at peak demand. Current attempts to schedule to demand are relatively primitive: a small number of quantized fixed shifts, fo ...

  9. Refinement of lead compounds to modulate water permeability through AQP4

    SBC: AEROMICS, Inc.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cerebral edema (and its counterpart in the spinal cord) is a major contributor to the damage caused by stroke, traumatic brain injury, traumatic spinal-cord injury, and bacterial meningitis. Stroke alone is the third leading cause of death in the USA and the leading cause of disability. Unfortunately, few treatment options are available for cerebral and spinal- ...

  10. Therapeutic Potential of Ex vivo expanded Human Cord Blood derived CD133+ cells i

    SBC: Arteriocyte, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) is a common problem that often results in major limb amputation. Circulating endothelial progenitor cells likely play a role in the pathogenesis of CLI; the number and function of these cells that are mobilized from the bone marrow are reduced in the elderly and diabetics, groups at high risk for CLI. Allogenic Umbilical Cord Blood ...
