Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H3.03
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

A Nautilus Centripetal Capillary Condenser (NCCC) is proposed for the microgravity compatible removal of water from a saturated air stream. Successful development of this technology will result in a device that effectively dries a hot, moist airstream to a dew point of no more than 10 degrees Celsius with no entrained water droplets in the dry ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H20.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

A microgravity-compatible Continuous Brine Evaporation Cartridge (CBEC) is proposed for greater than 95% water recovery from highly contaminated wastewater without concern for precipitation of organic and inorganic solids. The CBEC utilizes a small, counter flow evaporation chamber and heat exchange technologies, which reduce Equivalent System ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H12.02
Budget: 04/22/15 - 04/21/17

An innovative Microgravity Compatible Medical Suction Device (MCMSD) is proposed for the efficient aspiration and containment of bodily fluids and vomitus in a microgravity environment without the release of infectious agents. A design developed and tested in the Phase I work consisted of a reusable vacuum shell and disposable cartridges. Cart...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H1.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Plasma techniques are proposed for the extraction of oxygen from the abundant carbon dioxide contained in the Martian atmosphere (96 % CO2). In this process, CO2 is directly decomposed in an energetic plasma forming O2 and CO, which are immediately separated. The Phase I project will clearly demonstrate the feasibility of achieving these goals...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H1.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

A Microchannel Sabatier Reactor System (MSRS) consisting of cross connected arrays of isothermal or graded temperature reactors is proposed. The reactor array enables nearly complete single pass carbon dioxide reduction using the Sabatier reaction, allowing efficient recovery of oxygen from in situ carbon dioxide resources on Mars or other Near ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H20.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

A microgravity-compatible Brine Evaporation and Mineralization System (BEMS) is proposed for 100% water recovery from highly contaminated wastewater as well as water generated from entrained organic contaminant oxidation without concern for precipitation of organic and inorganic solids. The BEMS utilizes fully regenerable evaporation media, a c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H3.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Microwave regenerative sorption media gas storage/delivery techniques are proposed to address both compressed gas management and hydrogen purification requirements in support of crewed deep space exploration missions. By reducing or eliminating the need for a conventional gas compressor, both the crew habitat noise level and required storage pr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-H12.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

A compact microgravity and hypogravity compatible vacuum device is proposed to provide medical suction and containment of extracted fluids. The proposed aspirator will draw up to 40 L/min of air and produce a nominal vacuum of 500-mm Hg, which is comparable to commercially available medical aspirators. The unit will also provide a means for se...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-2-X3.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

An Advanced Microgravity Compatible, Integrated laundry System (AMCILS) is proposed that uses a two phase water / water vapor system to allow good agitation of clothing during the wash & rinse cycle. Drying will be accomplished utilizing microwave energy addition and "jet" air flow to fluff and move clothing in the washing chamber. Operation i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-X3.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Volume reduction is a critical element of Solid Waste Management for manned spacecraft and planetary habitations. To this end, the proposed fecal waste incinerator may be utilized to completely mineralize feces to harmless inorganic substances such as CO2 and water. These products may then be rerouted to the ECLSS processes for hydrogen CO2 re...
