  1. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  2. Novel Munition Technologies to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143004

    Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce let ...

  3. Color-XHDR- A Compact High-Speed Color Extreme High Dynamic Range Video Capability for Rocket Engine Testing

    SBC: INNOVATIVE IMAGING & RESEARCH CORP            Topic: H1002

    Innovative Imaging and Research proposes to develop a 21st Century color, high-speed extreme high dynamic range (Color-XHDR) video recording technology that will produce engineering-grade video to accurately document rocket motor firings at close range within a test cell without image saturation. This novel imaging system will include a compact, single focal plane array camera and end-to-end image ...

  4. Lunar Spectral Irradiance Monitor

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S103

    The purpose of this effort is to develop an instrument to accurately calibrate (1% k=2) the lunar spectral reflectance (350 to 2,300 nm) at relatively low expense from a small satellite. Assuming the TSIS missions are successful and the solar irradiance is known, the lunar spectral reflectance can be used to provide known lunar irradiance, thereby providing a stable exo-atmospheric calibration sou ...

  5. Space-Hardened Seed Laser for Use in High Spectral Resolution Lidar Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort to develop a fully packaged, environmentally hardened, diode-based, locked wavelength, seed laser for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for future space-based, high spectral resolution Lidar (HSRL) measurements. The Phase I effort successfully demonstrated that a diode-based, wavelength-locked seed laser can provide the spectral pur ...

  6. Modular Advanced Networked Telerobotic Interface System (MANTIS)

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H601

    With the goal to reduce astronaut time required to operate experiments on the ISS and advance automated and telerobotic technology, TUI proposes to collaborate with NanoRacks to develop a "Modular Advanced Networked Telerobotic Interface System" (MANTIS) that will integrate TUI?s existing KRAKEN robotic arm in a payload on the ISS. The MANTIS payload will reduce crew member burden to operate exper ...

  7. Active Radiation Shield

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: T301

    In the Phase I effort, Gloyer-Taylor Laboratories LLC (GTL) verified the feasibility of generating power from space particle radiation.  This effort successfully demonstrated electrical power production from a particle radiation source using an initial proof-of-concept device.  The effort also identified a second approach that has the potential for even better power generation and offers ...

  8. RF Crosslink for Relative Navigation and Time/Frequency Distribution

    SBC: M42 Technologies, LLC            Topic: S305

    M42 Technologies is proposing to continue development of a RF based crosslink with relative navigation and time transfer capabilities to enable autonomous precision formation flying (PFF) of spacecraft as small as nanosatellites (1 to 10 kg). The solution consists of a multi-channel software defined radio (SDR), and innovative signaling and processing to enable CubeSat scaled spacecraft to measur ...

  9. ERASMUS: Food Contact Safe Plastics Recycler and 3D Printer System

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H1401

    A key goal of the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) from 2012 is to utilize the ISS for developing the systems and protocols necessary to humans to venture beyond low Earth orbit for extended durations, and with the push from Congress in 2015 to build a deep space habitat for a Mars mission by 2018, the goals of HEOMD are increasingly important to meet. The ERASMUS techn ...

  10. High Power, Thermally Optimized Blue Laser for Lidar

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S101

    To enable widespread and rapid airborne bathymetric lidar to adequate depths in many ocean regions a low-cost, rugged, and high energy pulsed laser source must be developed in the ocean water transmittance spectrum of 450 - 490 nm. The ideal laser source will be high performance for lidar (high pulse energy, high rep rate, short pulse duration) with specific targeted emission spectrum to meet ocea ...
