FOCAL PLANE IMAGE COMPRESSION IN THE CHARGE DOMAIN

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
This project addresses charge-domain image compression on a monolithic charge-coupled device (ccd) detector. such a device would have substantially reduced output bandwidth compared with existing pixel-by-pixel readout systems. because current image compression algorithms can provide compression… More

Channel-Electron-Multiplier Micro-Instrument for Particle Counting and Photometry

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Timothy Cushing
Award Amount: $69,706.00
Abstract:
The innovations proposed permit an order-of-magnitude reduction in resource requirements for Channel Electron Multiplier (CEM) instruments by (1) replacing the traditional preamplifier and discriminator with passive amplification and thresholding, (2) utilizing novel accumulators for direct data… More
