  2. X10: Cryogenic Propellant Storage and Transfer

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

    The Exploration Systems architecture presents cryogenic storage, distribution, and fluid handling challenges that require new technologies to be developed. Reliable knowledge of low-gravity cryogenic fluid management behavior is lacking and yet is critical for future manned and robotic exploration in the areas of storage, distribution, and low-gravity propellant management. Additionally, Earth-based and planetary surface missions will require success in storing and transferring liquid and gas commodities in applications.

  4. X11: Radiation Protection

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

    The SBIR topic area of Radiation Protection focuses on the development and testing of mitigation concepts to protect astronaut crews and exploration vehicles from the harmful effects of space radiation, both in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and while conducting long-duration missions beyond LEO. Advances are needed in mitigation schema for the next generation of exploration vehicles inclusive of radiation shielding materials and structures technologies to protect humans from the hazards of space radiation during NASA missions.

  5. X11.01: Radiation Shielding Materials Systems

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

    Advances in radiation shielding materials technologies and systems are needed to protect humans from the hazards of space radiation during NASA missions. The primary areas of interest for this 2011 solicitation are radiation shielding materials systems for long-duration galactic cosmic radiation (GCR) and solar energetic particles (SEP) protection. Neutron protection and high-energy electron protection are also of interest. Research should be conducted to demonstrate technical feasibility during Phase I and to show a path toward a Phase II technology demonstration.

  6. X12: Exploration Crew Health Capabilities

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

    Human space flight is associated with losses in muscle strength, bone mineral density and aerobic capacity. Crewmembers returning from the International Space Station (ISS) can lose as much as 10-20% of their strength in weight bearing and postural muscles. Likewise, bone mineral density is decreased at a rate of ~1% per month. During future exploration missions such physiologic decrements represent the potential for a significant loss of human performance which could lead to mission failure and/or a threat to crewmember health and safety.

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

    NASA seeks compact, low mass, low power, hi life-cycle, force-generating components for application to future crew exercise equipment - capable of providing aerobic and resistive (>700 lbs) loads over a range of load increments of 5 lbs. for each load setting <100 lbs., of 10 lbs. for each load setting >100 lbs., and with adjustable stroke range up to 70 inches, while providing return: pull stroke load ratios of 0.9:1.0 or greater (e.g., 1.0:1.0 better, or 1.1:1.0 best) over the entire range of motion.

  8. X12.02: Portable Load Sensing Systems

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

    NASA seeks a portable, force/load measurement system capable of being integrated into existing International Space Station (ISS) exercise systems. During long duration spaceflight, exercise countermeasures are prescribed to mitigate bone and muscle loss. However, advancement of these exercise prescriptions may require biomechanical analysis of exercise on orbit. Output parameters from the proposed device must operate in the bandwidth from 0-100Hz and be able to be synchronized with existing analog data systems.

    Further human exploration of the solar system will present significant new challenges to crew health including hazards created by traversing the terrain of asteroids or planetary surfaces and the effects of variable gravity environments. The limited communications with ground-based personnel for diagnosis and consultation of medical events creates additional challenges.
