  1. ELECTROSTATIC FRACTIONATION OF NATURAL AND PROCESSED LUNAR SOLIDS IN SPACE

    SBC: Advanced Energy Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH ON SEPARATION AND CONCENTRATION OF LUNAR DERIVED MATERIALS IS PROPOSED BASED ON ADVANCED ENERGY DYNAMICS' STATE OF THE ART EXPERIENCE IN DRY ELECTROSTATIC SEPARATION.THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF SEPARATING THESE MATERIALS INTO A VARIETY OF CHEMICALLY DISTINCT FRACTIONS USING A NOVEL COUNTERCURRENT ELECTROSTATIC PROCESS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THE ELECTROSTATIC SEPARATOR TO BE USED IS IDEALL ...

  2. RUBY CRYSTAL CHLOROPHYLL FLUOROMETER FOR MEASUREMENTS OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS RATES

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DESIGN, CONSTRUCT AND TEST A LABORATORY VERSION OF A PASSIVE CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESCENCE SENSOR SUITABLE FOR MONITORING LARGE AREAS OF VEGETATION (> 1 M2). THE LINE DISCRIMINATOR METHOD WE PROPOSE EXPLOITS A COINCIDENCE BETWEEN AN ABSORPTION LINE OFATMOSPHERIC OXYGEN AND THE R1 LINE OF A COOLED RUBY CRYSTAL,BOTH OF WHICH LIE NEAR THE PEAK OF THE CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESC ...

  3. NOVEL PROPORTIONAL PROXIMITY SENSOR FOR AUTONOMOUS, SPACE BASED ROBOTS

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ROBOTICS IS BECOMING AN INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT FIELD IN RESEARCH AND MANUFACTURING. MOST ROBOTS, HOWEVER, EITHER PERFORM REPETITIVE PREPROGRAMMED OPERATIONS OR ARE GUIDED BY A HUMAN OPERATOR. THIS IS NOT PRACTICAL IN MANY APPLICATIONS WHERE AUTONOMOUS OPERATION IS REQUIRED, AND THE MOST IMPORTANT IMPROVEMENTS IN FUTURE GENERATIONS OF ROBOTS, ESPECIALLY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS, WILL COME IN THE AREA ...

  4. HIGH RESOLUTION, AVALANCHE DIODE X-RAY SPECTROMETER FOR PLANETARY EXPLORATION

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING GOALS OF THE NASA SPACE PROGRAM IS TO LAND A VEHICLE ON MARS AND CONDUCT PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL MEASUREMENTS OF THE MARTIAN SURFACE. OF THE VARIOUS ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES BEING CONSIDERED FOR THE LANDER MISSION, X-RAY FLUORESCENCE ANALYSIS OFFERS THE POSSIBILITY OF PROVIDING THE IN-SITU INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF THE PROSPECTIVE SAMPLES WHICH WILL BE SELEC ...

  5. EXPERT SYSTEM FOR FINITE ELEMENT MODELING

    SBC: Autodesk Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MOST TYPICAL PROBLEMS IN STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING ARE BEST ANALYZED BY APPROXIMATING AN OBJECT'S GEOMETRY WITH FINITE ELEMENTS. SELECTING AN APPROPRIATE MESHING STRATEGY FOR A GIVEN SOLID REQUIRES KNOWLEDGE ABOUT FINITE ELEMENT THEORY IN GENERAL, AND ABOUT PACKAGE-SPECIFIC DETAILS IN PARTICULAR. THE ADEPT SYSTEM INTEGRATES A TRADITIONAL SOLIDMODELER WITH AN EXPERT SYSTEM EQUIPPED WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE ...

  6. SPACE QUALIFIED, IMAGE QUALITY ULTRAVIOLET INTERFERENCE FILTERS

    SBC: Barr Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. NON-CONTACT, SELF-REFERENCING FULL APERTURE METROLOGY FOR LARGE ASPHERIC MIRRORS

    SBC: Bauer Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. TACTILE TELEPRESENCE SYSTEM FOR DEXTEROUS TELEROBOTICS

    SBC: Begej Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND FABRICATE AN INNOVATIVE FINGERTIP-SHAPED TACTILE TELEPRESENCE SYSTEM FOR DEXTEROUS TELEROBOTIC SYSTEMS. THE PRINCIPAL TASKS TO BE PERFORMED ARE: (1) DESIGN OF VARIOUS MINIATURE TACTILE STIMULATOR ELEMENTS AND EVALUATION OF THE ACTUATION STRENGTH, DISPLACEMENT MAGNITUDE, FREQUENCY RESPONSE RANGE, AND THERMAL LOADING CHARACTERISTICS, (2) CONSTRUCTION OF ...
