15 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 91-1
Budget: 01/01/91 - 12/31/91
PI: Unavailable

THE TRADITIONAL METHOD OF STORING BACKUP OXYGEN FOR EXTRAVEHICULAR ACTIVITY IS AS GAS, IN A PAIR OF HIGH-PRESSURE, SPHERICAL TANKS. THIS REPRESENTS A CONSIDERABLE SHRAPNEL HAZARD: 0.19 MJ OF COMPRESSION ENERGY (TWO TANKS) WITH RESPECT TO AN ADIABATIC EXPANSION TO ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE FROM 6000 PSIA. THIS QUANTITY OF EXPLOSION ENERGY CORRESPONDS ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N88-094
Budget: 01/10/90 - 01/10/92

THE PHASE I STUDY EXAMINED METHODS FOR STORING AND CONVERTING CHEMICAL ENERGY FOR PROPULSION OF SUBMERSIBLE VEHICLES. LIQUID OXYGEN AND HYDROGEN, GENERATED FROM THE REACTION OF SOLID CHEMICALS WITH WATER, WERE FOUND TO OFFER THE HIGHEST ENERGY DENSITY IN A NEUTRALLY BUOYANT VOLUME. CLOSED CYCLE INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES WERE FOUND TO BE SUPE...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 90-1
Budget: 01/01/90 - 12/31/90

ADVANCED THERMAL STORAGE IS A CRUCIAL ELEMENT OF FUTURE SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. SOLID-LIQUID PHASE CHANGES IN HIGHLY CORROSIVE SALTS, SUCH AS LIF, ARE FAR FROM IDEAL FOR SUPPLYING THE THERMAL DEMANDS OF DYNAMIC POWER CONVERTERS. IN THEORY, PHASE CHANGE MATERIALS STORE HEAT ISOTHERMALLY BUT UNDERCOOLING AND HEAT TRANSFER TS CAUSE SIGNIFICANT TEMPERA...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 89-1
Budget: 01/01/89 - 12/31/89

A VIBRATIONLESS LONG-LIVED REFRIGERATOR IS DESIRED TO PRODUCE COOLING FOR SPACECRAFT SENSORS IN THE 65-80 K RANGE. HIGHLY COMPRESSED GAS, AFTER JOULE-THOMSON EXPANSION, CAN PRODUCE CRYOLIQUIDS TO PROVIDE SUCH COOLING. A CHEMICAL OXYGEN COMPRESSOR IS APPEALING, YET CURRENT MATERIALS ARE LIMITED BY A LOW WEIGHT FRACTION OF OXYGEN; E.G. PR1-NCDNOO....

Phase 1 SBIR

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 87-1
Budget: 01/01/87 - 12/31/87
PI: Unavailable

METAL HYDRIDES ARE UNIQUELY CONTROLLABLE PHASE-CHANGE MATERIALS WITH THE POTENTIAL TO CONTROL AND USE HEAT IN FUTURE SPACE THERMAL ENERGY CONTROL SYSTEMS. HYDRIDES MANIPULATE HEAT WHILE CHEMICALLY ABSORBING AND DESORBING HYDROGEN OVER A BROAD RANGE OF TEMPERATURES. THE PHASE-CHANGES ARE CONTROLLABLE BY VALVING THE THE FLOW OF HYDROGEN, FROM ONE ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 87-2
Budget: 01/01/87 - 12/31/87
PI: G.j. Egan

THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING METAL HYDRIDE SUBSYSTEMS TO INTEGRATE COMMON SPACECRAFT RESOURCES. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY DEVELOPING A REALISTIC SET OF DESIGN DATA CHARACTERIZING THE POTENTIAL USE OF METAL HYDRIDE SYSTEMS IN SPACE. THIS DATA WILL BE GENERATED BY AN APPROACH WHICH WILL ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 87-2
Budget: 01/01/87 - 12/31/87

THE LIQUID HYDROGEN FUEL USED FOR THE SPACE SHUTTLE AT KENNEDY SPACE CENTER IS EXPEECTED TO GROW FROM A CURRENT ANNUAL RATE OF APPROXIMATELY 5 MILION GALLONS TO 10 MILLION GALLONS IN THE LATE 1980'S. ABOUT ONE THIRD OF THIS VOLUME LIQUID HYDROGEN IS LOST FORM STEADY STAT , AND PERIODIC SOURCES SUCH AS PRE-COOLING, LOADING AND UNLOADING OPERATION...
