Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-S1.07
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

The cold cycle dilution refrigerator is a continuous refrigerator capable of cooling to temperatures below 100 mK that makes use of a novel thermal magnetic pump. The refrigerator will provide continuous cooling at temperatures below 100 mK. This technology will provide cooling for detectors on future infrared and x-ray astrophysics missions and...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-X10.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Future instruments and platforms for NASA space applications will require increasingly sophisticated thermal control technology, and cryogenic applications will become increasingly more common. For example, the Single Aperture Far-IR (SAFIR) telescope and other cryogenic telescope missions must provide distributed cooling and multiple heat lift....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-020
Budget: 04/30/10 - 10/30/10

The problem of cooling gimbaled optics and LWIR focal planes can be solved by placing the entire cryocooler on gimbal. However, a large mass penalty is paid for such configurations, because the gimbal itself must grow in size and mass in order to support the cryocooler. To address the requirements of cooling across a two-axis gimbal, flexible jo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-X8
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Various planned NASA missions require heat switches for active thermal control. As an example cryocoolers, including redundant coolers are incorporated on select missions. The redundant coolers operate when deteriorating or defunct coolers are deactivated. However, integration of redundant coolers may cause substantial parasitic heat loads unles...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-X7
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Future NASA exloration, planetary and astrophysics missions will require various enhancements in multi-stage cryocoolers. These include increased efficiency, reduced vibration and reductions in overall system mass and power consumption. For the small coolers required, pulse tube and Stirling coolers offer the best opportunities. At present, the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-010
Budget: 03/27/09 - 09/27/09

Future MDA missions will require various enhancements in multi-stage cryocoolers. These include increased efficiency, reduced vibration and reductions in overall system mass and power consumption. For the small coolers required, pulse tube and Stirling coolers offer the best opportunities. At present, the efficiency of these coolers is limite...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Future NASA missions require thermal control systems that can accommodate large changes in ambient temperature. The two essential aspects of an effective thermal interface material (TIM) are high compliance and high thermal conductivity. Thermal interface materials (TIM) are often used to fill the cavities between mating surfaces to increase t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

For the future spaceport and long-term storage of liquid hydrogen NASA requires cryocoolers that can provide cooling power in the range of 20 watts at 20 K. The closed-cycle cooling alternatives currently available for such applications are not well suited to the requirements. In many cases reliability is low and vibration high. In other cases...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project seeks to develop a flexible, double-sided, dry adhesive ""tape"" that is applicable to science, space, industry and home use. The thermally and electrically conductive tape will be detachable and reusable, and, will not have the disadvantages associated with other adhesion methods. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Future instruments and platforms for NASA space applications will require increasingly sophisticated thermal control technology, and cryogenic applications will become increasingly more common.
