  1. 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 ...

  2. Self-Lubricating Hard Coatings for Extreme Environment

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: S404

    This program will develop low friction hard coatings for lubricating mechanical and tribological components used for exploring Mars, the Moon, asteroids, comets and other small bodies. This proposed SBIR program will build on MesoCoat's extensive prior experience in developing dense, hard friction-free coatings.

  3. Circadian Rhythm Management System

    SBC: ORBITAL RESEARCH INC            Topic: H1203

    The value of measuring sleep-wake cycles is significantly enhanced by measuring other physiological signals that depend on circadian rhythms (such as heart rate and temperature) and environmental conditions that are known zeitgebers, such as light exposure. As a result, a more complete picture of crewmember circadian rhythms and the environmental factors that entrain them will aid in determining a ...

  4. Natural Touch Interaction for Virtual Reality and Teleoperation via Ungrounded Tactile Shear Feedback

    SBC: TACTICAL HAPTICS, INC.            Topic: H2001

    The proposed research innovation will create a low-cost, intuitive means for people to have multi-fingered interaction with Robonaut 2 and training simulations via tactile shear feedback. This work builds on the PI's prior university research. Tactile shear feedback imparts friction and shear forces to the user's hand via sliding plates that are built into the handle of the grasped device. These ...

  5. Fast Responding Pressure-Sensitive Paint for Large-Scale Wind Tunnel Testing

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A307

    The proposed work focuses on implementing fast-response pressure-sensitive paint for measurements of unsteady pressure in rotorcraft applications. Significant rotorcraft problems such as dynamic stall, rotor blade loads in forward flight, and blade-vortex interaction all have significant unsteady pressure oscillations that must be resolved in order to understand the underlying physics. Installatio ...

  6. Adaptive Liners for Broadband Noise Reduction

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A302

    This project will combine the advantages of adaptive materials with the simplistic passive design of state-of-the-art acoustic liners to provide the ability to tune them for specific operational frequencies (ex. take-off/cutback, cruise, and approach). The main deterrent to implementing these methods is not having the materials on hand to provide the functionality needed in a simplistic way. Many ...

  7. High-Speed Noninvasive Multi-Parameter Laser Diagnostics for High-Mach-Number Flows

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: A401

    Numerous ground test and wind tunnel facilities are used extensively to generate forces and moments as well as surface measurements of test articles required to validate computational tools used to extrapolate wind tunnel data to realistic flight conditions and hardware. Accurately mapping velocity flow fields remains a significant challenge in these facilities. In addition, spatially and tempor ...

    SBIR Phase I 2014 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. NONA Cure of Prepreg Structures

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: H503

    CRG's no-oven, no-autoclave (NONA) composite processing technology enables the fabrication of high-performance composite parts without the limitations imposed by autoclaves and ovens. The NONA infusion and cure of autoclave prepreg materials allows the manufacture of large primary composite structures without the expensive and energy-intensive capital equipment currently required for fabrication. ...

    SBIR Phase I 2014 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Radiation/Temperature Hardened Advanced Readout Array with Dynamic Power Modes

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S106

    NASA has an interest in the development of advanced instruments and components for Lunar and planetary science missions. Instrumentation is needed for the exploration of inner and outer planets and their moons, comets, asteroids, etc. As a consequence, instrumentation systems must withstand the extreme environments experienced in space and planetary environments; radiation, temperature, pressure ...

    SBIR Phase I 2014 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Lightweight, High Strength Nano-Composite Magnesium for Radiators

    SBC: Terves Inc.            Topic: H301

    In this Phase I SBIR, Terves will develop processing routes to produce high thermal conductivity magnesium composites for use in heat transfer applications such as radiator materials. Terves will use and refine ultrasonic casting processes developed over the past three years and move into a magnesium based material using high aspect ratio carbon fibers and diamond particles by dispersing in a liqu ...
