  1. Bead Evaporator for Complete Water and Salt Recovery from Brine

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H2002

    A microgravity-compatible Brine Evaporation and Mineralization System (BEMS) is proposed for 100% water recovery from highly contaminated wastewater as well as water generated from entrained organic contaminant oxidation without concern for precipitation of organic and inorganic solids. The BEMS utilizes fully regenerable evaporation media, a catalytic oxidizer, and heat exchange technologies, wh ...

  2. Plasma Extraction of Oxygen from Martian Atmosphere

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H101

    Plasma techniques are proposed for the extraction of oxygen from the abundant carbon dioxide contained in the Martian atmosphere (96 % CO2). In this process, CO2 is directly decomposed in an energetic plasma forming O2 and CO, which are immediately separated. The Phase I project will clearly demonstrate the feasibility of achieving these goals by focusing on key aspects of the technology, such a ...

  3. Compressorless Gas Storage and Regenerative Hydrogen Purification

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: H302

    Microwave regenerative sorption media gas storage/delivery techniques are proposed to address both compressed gas management and hydrogen purification requirements in support of crewed deep space exploration missions. By reducing or eliminating the need for a conventional gas compressor, both the crew habitat noise level and required storage pressure for important Air Revitalization (AR) gases, s ...

  4. Reservoir Scandate Cathode for Electric Propulsion

    SBC: E BEAM INC            Topic: H201

    We propose to combine two revolutionary cathode technologies into a single device for use in electric space propulsion. This will overcome problems that both technologies have when operated alone. The cathode is currently the component which most limits performance and life in ion and Hall Effect thrusters. Improved cathodes are essential for NASA's next generation electric space propulsion in ...

  5. High Count Rate Single Photon Counting Detector Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: H902

    An optical communications receiver requires efficient and high-rate photon-counting capability so that the information from every photon, received at the aperture, is processed. This is particularly true in space platforms, where the information contained in every additional photon detected directly translates into lower system size, weight, and power (SWAP). To address this need, a near-infrared ...

  6. Venus Altitude Cycling Balloon

    SBC: ISTAR            Topic: S306

    The ISTAR Group ( IG) and team mate Thin Red Line Aerospace (TRLA) propose a Venus altitude cycling balloon (Venus ACB), an innovative superpressure balloon architecture that is ideally suited to cloud level mission parameters and to incorporation of a variety of buoyancy control mechanisms that will enable significant altitude cycling capability. The 5.5 meter diameter vessel is similar to the d ...

  7. Low CSWAP Multi-Beam TCDL Antenna System

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: N132089

    Applied Radar proposes to develop a high-gain low cost, size, power and weight (low-CSWAP) tactical common data link (TCDL) antenna for the Firescout and Predator UAVs. The improved TCDL antenna will support 6 or more nodes of high-gain full-duplex communication at 21.42 MBPS in a star network configuration with 360 degree coverage out to 110 nm slant range. In Phase 1, we will design, fabricate a ...

  8. Sensitive and Shape-Specific Molecular Identification

    SBC: RYON TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A11aT017

    The ability to rapidly detect, identify and monitor chemical agents remains a challenge of significant importance to the Armed Forces. Existing chemical sensing techniques have shortcomings that inhibit widespread implementation. To address this situation, Ryon Technologies is developing a portable instrument that is based on Rydberg Fingerprint Spectroscopy (RFS) in combination with mass spectrom ...

  9. Advanced Littoral Combat Ship Common Mission Module Handling Device

    SBC: Quantum Engineering Design, Inc.            Topic: N132120

    The Quantum Engineering Design, Inc. (QED) Mission Module Handling Device (MMHD) is designed to meet the Navys requirements of minimizing the deck point loading while lifting and omni-directionally maneuvering ISO containers and Twenty foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) aboard both the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Freedom and Independence class of vessel. Special attention is paid to the need for operatin ...

  10. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...
