  2. ARCSTONE Improvements

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase I effort will be devoted to exploring possible improvements for the NASA ARCSTONE instrument. One possible improvement will be to utilize total internal reflection optics for the fore-optics of the system. Possible benefits include reduced polarization and smaller size. A second possible improvement will be to use an optical design that requires only one focal plane array for the e ...

  4. Frequency Agile Seed Laser for Orbital Doppler-Shift Compensation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S1

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort is to develop a frequency-agile, stand-alone, space-hardened diode-based seed laser with options for locking and frequency agility to compensate for doppler shift during orbit. This US-manufactured platform will be applicable for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for high-priority-designated aerosol missions (single- and multi-chann ...

  5. Ceramic-Metal Interfaces by Functional Grading

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: A107

    Glacigen Materials proposes a novel technique for producing large-area sheets of functionally graded materials (FGM), which yield robust ceramic-metal interfaces capable of withstanding harsh environments that include high temperatures. Propulsion systems offer some of the harshest possible design conditions from a materials perspective and the demands placed on engineering materials will become m ...

  8. Fast Electro-Optic Switch for Pulsed Space-Based Lidar Beam Steering

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    Lidar is a core technology in NASA's arsenal for science measurements from ground, air-borne and space based platforms. AdvR is proposing a beam steering mechanism for space-based Lidar based on AdvR's electro-optic deflector technology with no moving parts, making it favorable for space-based operation. The system operates on the principle of electro-optically controlled prisms engineered into a ...

  9. High-Capacity, High-Speed, Solid-State Hydrogen Gas Generator

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: Z703

    Deployable aerodynamic decelerators are an enabling technology for missions to planets and moons with atmospheres as well as for returning payloads to Earth. These decelerators require a gas source to inflate them, and the objective is to provide an improvement over existing pressurized cold gas inflation systems. A solid-state hydrogen gas generator is proposed which is based on the thermal ...

    SBIR Phase I 2017 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Lunar Spectral Irradiance Monitor

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S103

    During this effort an instrument for calibrating the lunar irradiance will be designed. Such an instrument will lead to reliable exoatmospheric calibration for past, current, and future earth-viewing instruments and improve the accuracy of their data products, which in turn will improve climate change and weather models. The instrument will measure both the solar and lunar irradiances, which will ...
