Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H20.01
Budget: 06/13/16 - 06/12/18

The NASA SBIR Phase I project addressed the technical feasibility of an innovative torrefaction (mild pyrolysis) processing system that can be used to sterilize feces and produce a stable, odor-free solid product than can be easily stored or recycled, while simultaneously recovering moisture and producing small amounts of other useful products. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

New technology is needed to collect, stabilize, recover useful materials, and store human fecal waste for long duration missions, both for crew safety, comfort and resource requirements and planetary protection. The proposed SBIR Phase I project addresses an innovative torrefaction (mild pyrolysis) processing approach that can be used to sterili...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-H4.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space requires the development of regenerable life support systems. This proposal addresses the development of an integrated air-revitalization system for the space suit used in Extravehicular Activities (EVAs). The proposed innovations are: (1) a single CO2, trace-co...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-H4.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space requires the development of regenerable life support systems. This proposal addresses the development of an integrated air-revitalization system for the space suit used in Extravehicular Activities (EVAs). The proposed innovations are: (1) a single CO2, H2O, and...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-H3.03
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

New technology is needed to collect, stabilize, safen, recover useful materials, and store human fecal waste for long duration missions. The current SBIR Phase I proposal will examine an innovative torrefaction (mild pyrolysis) processing system that can be used to sterilize feces and produce a stable, free flowing powder than can be easily stor...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-057
Budget: 09/24/12 - 09/23/14

ABSTRACT: The Leadership Agreement signatures on this Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP) project Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Technology Transition Plan (STTP 2011-51) formalize an agreement to develop the technology maturation and transition strategies, and pending funding and direction, plan and prepare the transition strat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-X12.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Auscultation, or listening to internal sounds made by the body of a patient, is an important tool in medical diagnostics. Heart, lung, intestine, and circulatory function can be assessed through careful listening. There are numerous situations, however, where the faint sounds collected using an ordinary stethoscope are overwhelmed by ambient n...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-X4.02
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space requires the development of regenerable life support systems. This proposal addresses the development of a regenerable air-revitalization system for trace-contaminant (TC) removal for the space suit used in Extravehicular Activities (EVAs). The proposed innovati...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-260
Budget: 09/30/10 - 09/30/12

The Air Force is seeking new technology that will provide the means to accurately measure and monitor turbine inlet gas temperature in gas turbine engines, particularly in advanced engines operating at very high temperatures (>3,100 degree F). In Phase I of this program, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. demonstrated that turbine inlet gas temperatu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-X2
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Pyrolysis processing can be used in near term missions for volume reduction, water recovery (drying), stabilization, and enhanced water and oxygen recovery through thermochemical reactions. For longer term missions, the added benefits include production of fuel, multi-purpose carbon, and reactants for in-situ resource utilization (ISRU). The obj...
