  4. Integrated Mid-Infrared Sources Enabled by Waveguides Written with Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: AKTIWAVE LLC            Topic: T8

    This proposal addresses, for the first time, the demonstration of integrated mid-infrared sources based on waveguiding in a bonded solid-state laser material and periodically poled nonlinear material. A focused femtosecond laser beam allows for precisely localized modification of the refractive index of a material, therefore enabling to create waveguiding structures. The offeror has demonstrated f ...

  7. A Supported Liquid Membrane System for Steady State CO2 Control in a Spacecraft Cabin

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: T6

    Reducing the allowable concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in spacecraft is a critical need for NASA.  The system now used on the International Space Station (ISS) is the carbon dioxide removal assembly (CDRA).  While it has performed well on the ISS, managers have concluded that using the device to reach the new ppCO2 limit of 2.0 mm Hg is not practical and a new method is needed.In t ...

  8. Aeroservoelastic Multifidelity Design of Biomimetic Aircraft (AMuBA)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: T15

    NASA has been investigating morphing aircraft for multi-mission capabilities and performance improvements in existing fixed-wing aircraft. In addition, the design of aeroelastic aircraft that can control the structural flexibility to their advantage, is an open area of research and development. In spite of the plethora of work on morphing aircraft and long slender wings, the goal of fielding such ...

  10. DSM Autonomy System

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: T11

    Increasing the level of spacecraft autonomy for any future space mission will make it more affordable and capable, allowing NASA to do more science with less operations costs. For future Distributed Space Missions (DSMs) however, spacecraft autonomy is critical to reducing costs to make the missions affordable and practical. The use of multiple satellites to simultaneously sample science observati ...
