  1. Helical Channel Liquid Acquisition Device

    SBC: Aerospace Design & Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Future space exploration programs require large quantities of both cryogenic and non-cryogenic fluids to accomplish missions. Large volume depot systems will be required to provide in-space supply to satisfy these mission requirments. Currently, passive liquid acquisition devices employing multiple channels are employed in space systems such as the shuttle to provide efficient vapor free liquid tr ...

  2. Low Thermal Loss Cryogenic Pump

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is of great importance in most cryogenic pumping systems to minimize heat addition to the cryogen by the pump. The two main areas of heat addition are from inefficiency of the pump and conduction from the motor and ambient surroundings into the cryogen. Optimally, low heat leak cryogenic pumps are designed with a long shaft (and outer housing)between the motor and wet end to minimize heat from ...

  3. Advanced Liquid Crystal on Silicon Optical Phased Arrays

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Non-mechanical beamsteering eliminates the need for massive optomechanical components to steer the field of view of optical systems. This benefit is to come in the form of compact, low-power, light-weight optical phased arrays that provide better control with greater flexibility in their steering capability than their mechanical counterparts. Currently, high-speed, high-resolution, fully-programma ...

  5. 1024 x 1024 Liquid Crystal Multi-Level Spatial Light Modulator

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Success in recent high-speed multi-level spatial light modulator (SLM) developments has led to a desire for increased resolution at these high frame rates. Applications such as optical correlation, holographic storage, and multi-spot beam-steering would all benefit from the development of a very high-resolution high-speed multi-level SLM. Today Boulder Nonlinear Systems (BNS) offers several high-s ...

  7. Waveguide Laser for High Data Rate Deep Space Communications

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Deep space optical communications requires a laser source and modulation technique for high data bandwidth with low power consumption, diffraction-limited beam quality, and the absolute minimal size/weight. Optical fibers are compact and can efficiently amplify high data rate diode lasers, but do not provide the peak power required for detection over deep space transmit distances. Bulk diode-pumpe ...

  9. Utilizing MIL-STD-1553B Digital Data Bus Devices Across an IEEE-1394A Serial Bus

    SBC: Seakr Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this first phase of technical development, this proposal for research and development seeks to design an architecture that will enable MIL-STD-1553B digital data bus monitoring through an isochronous channel of an IEEE-1394A High Performance Serial Bus.The traits of this design will give I&T (integration and test) and launch operations teams full access to the spacecraft avionics bus, including ...

  10. SindaWorks- The Next Generation of Thermal/Fluid Analysis

    SBC: Cullimore & Ring Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA's thermal and fluid analysts are consistently finding that their ability to analyze spacecraft is limited by current tools whose development begin four decades ago: over two generations! To eliminate this problem and to provide a path for growth into the future, NASA needs to start afresh and obtain a new generation of analysis tools that take advantage of modern software technologies and com ...
