  4. X4.03: Space Suit Radio, Sensors, Displays, Cameras, and Audio

    Release Date: 07-18-2011Open Date: 07-18-2011Due Date: 09-08-2011Close Date: 09-08-2011

    Future EVAs need advances in radio technologies, including antennas, tunable RF front-ends, and power amplifiers; low-power cameras; more accurate, reliable, and packaged core temperature, CO2, and biomedical sensors; user-friendly, minimally invasive crewmember information displays; and technologies that provide improvements in speech quality, listening quality and listening effort for in-helmet aural and vocal communications. Progress in these technologies will help ensure reliable communications, crew safety and comfort, and work efficiency and autonomy.

  6. X5.01: Expandable Structures

    Release Date: 07-18-2011Open Date: 07-18-2011Due Date: 09-08-2011Close Date: 09-08-2011

    The SBIR subtopic area of Lightweight Inflatable Structures solicits innovative concepts to support the development of primary pressurized expandable habitat and storage modules for space exploration environments. Inflatable concepts should illustrate small efficient launch volumes and large deployment volumes. Concepts should also illustrate simple designs, efficient deployment techniques, lightweight materials, and potential for integrated hard points. Robustness, damage tolerance, and minor repair capabilities should also be considered in concept submittals.

  8. X5.03: Spaceflight Structural Sensor Systems and NDE

    Release Date: 07-18-2011Open Date: 07-18-2011Due Date: 09-08-2011Close Date: 09-08-2011

    There is a growing use for modular/low mass-volume, low power, low maintenance systems, that reduce or eliminate wiring, stand-alone smart sensor systems that provide answers as close to the sensor as practical and systems that are flexible in their applicability. The systems should allow for additions or changes in instrumentation late in the design/development process and enable relocation or upgrade on orbit. They reduce the complexities of standard wires and connectors and enable sensing functions in locations not normally accessible with previous technologies.

    Future human spaceflight missions will place crews at large distances and light-time delays from Earth, requiring novel capabilities for crews and ground to manage spacecraft consumables such as power, water, propellant and life support systems to prevent Loss of Mission (LOM) or Loss of Crew (LOC). This capability is necessary to handle events such as leaks or failures leading to unexpected expenditure of consumables coupled with lack of communications.
