  1. Carbonaceous Asteroid Volatile Recovery (CAVoR) system

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: H101

    The Carbonaceous Asteroid Volatile Recovery (CAVoR) system extracts water and volatile organic compounds for propellant production, life support consumables, and manufacturing from in-situ resources in support of advanced space exploration. The CAVoR thermally extracts ice and water bound to clays minerals, which is then combined with small amounts of oxygen to gasify organic matter contained in c ...

  2. Dimensionally Stable Structural Space Cable

    SBC: ROCCOR, LLC            Topic: S202

    In response to the need for an affordable exoplanet-analysis science mission, NASA has recently embarked on the ROSES Technology Development for Exoplanet Missions (TDEM) program to develop a large deployable starshade (external occulter) with adequate manufacturing, deployment precision and stability. To that end NASA-JPL is involved in an ongoing effort to design and demonstrate a full-scale (3 ...

  3. Electro-Optically Scanned Micro-Laser Communication Module

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: H901

    In this SBIR program we will design, test, and deliver ultra-low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) Micro-Laser Communications (MiLC) modules for high bandwidth (> Gbps) free-space data links. These modules will be enabled by Vescent's proprietary and unprecedented electro-optic (EO), non-mechanical laser beamsteerers (up to a 120o x 120o field-of-view possible). Eliminating all moving parts will dra ...

  4. Robust Frequency Combs and Lasers for Optical Clocks and Sensing

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: S109

    Optical frequency combs are the key enabling technology that enabled the immense fractional stability of highly-stabilized lasers in the optical regime to be transferred to the RF domain and thus ushered in new generation of optical atomic clock with orders of magnitude improved stability over their RF atomic clock predecessors. Frequency combs have also found applications in spectroscopy, LIDAR, ...

  5. ROC-Rib Deployable Ka-Band Antenna for Nanosatellites

    SBC: ROCCOR, LLC            Topic: S102

    In these days of tight budgets and limited funding, NASA is constantly looking for new ways to reduce development time and costs of future spacecraft. This is the driving spirit behind NASA's increasing interest in the CubeSat platform, and the vision that is guiding development and demonstration of higher-risk technologies that can eventually lead to low-cost atmospheric science from CubeSats. F ...

  6. Compact Energy Conversion Module

    SBC: Extreme Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: T301

    This STTR project delivers a compact vibration-based Energy Conversion Module (ECM) that powers sensors for purposes such as structural health monitoring (SHM). NASA customers include the Rocket Propulsion Test (RPT) program, the ISS, and the Orion deep space vehicle, all of which need wireless sensors to monitor and assess structural health. The ECM represents a major advancement in the use of wi ...

  7. Optimization of the NIST/UCSF Breast Phantom

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: 9030268R

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a primary diagnostic tool in scientific research and clinical imaging. Despite the excellent image quality that can be obtained with today’s MRIs, images acquired using different MRI systems and during longitudinal studies are not reproducible, and hence can be difficult, if not impossible, to compare. To address this issue, a standardized test of the ...

  8. Geospatial Database for Storm Risk Assessment

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 841D

    In Phase I, Riverside investigated the need for increased access to NCDC storm data using web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect severe weather and socioeconomic information. The focus of Phase I was to design and validate an architecture that specifies the methods through which the NCDC Storm data can be programmatically accessed, processed, and displayed in easy to use interfac ...

  9. Monitoring Active Region Development of the Far-Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841W

    Solar active regions have a major impact on space weather. Knowledge of active regions in the Sun’s far hemisphere can improve forecasts of impending solar storms and future UV irradiance variations that negatively impact spacecraft, communications, and navigation facilities, thus making knowledge of active region locations and strengths of great benefit to society. We will use algorithms based ...
