Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H5.02
Budget: 05/26/16 - 05/25/18

Gas conduction and radiation are the two important heat transfer mechanisms in highly porous reusable thermal protection systems used for planetary entry of space vehicles. The relative magnitude of the two varies depending on altitude, temperature and the planet. Usually radiation is more significant at lower pressures and at higher temperatu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H5.02
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

S. D. Miller and Associates proposes to investigate a new class of thermal insulations that will enable thermal protection systems (TPS) on ceramic matrix composite (CMC) hot structures and Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerators (HIAD). One insulation will embed silicon carbide aerogel in silicon carbide fibers to create a super-efficie...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-107
Budget: 07/11/08 - 07/11/10

To extend Warfighter range, and improve readiness, the USMC needs a better sleeping bag for extreme cold conditions. The current Modular Sleep System (MSS) has enough insulation for 4 hours of rest at 0 F, weighs 10.3 lbs, and occupies 1780 cu.in when stored. Marines need a better sleep system that is lighter, less bulky and safe for use to 40...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-107
Budget: 12/18/06 - 10/09/07

To reduce Warfighter fatigue, and improve readiness, the USMC needs a better sleeping bag. The current Modular Sleep System (MSS) weighs 10.3 lbs, fills 1780 cubic inches when stored, and has enough insulation for 4-hours rest at 7 F, based on the heat loss model developed at Kansas State University. Marines are frequently in colder, wetter ...

SPACE SHUTTLE FLIGHTS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE VALUE OF FLEXIBLE CERAMIC BLANKETS SUCH AS ADVANCED FLEXIBLE REUSABLE SURFACE INSULATION (AFRS) FOR REENTRY THERMAL PROTECTION ON AREAS EXPOSED TO MODERATE HEATING RATES. OTHER CERAMIC BLANKETS ARE BEING DEVELOPED FOR FUTURE SPACECRAFT SUCH AS THE NASP, SHUTTLE-C, AND AEROASSIST ORBITAL TRANSFER VEHICL...
