  1. A Compact, Waveguide Based Programmable Optical Comb Generator

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    This NASA Phase I STTR effort will establish the feasibility of developing a compact broadband near to mid-IR programmable optical comb for use in laser based remote sensing and communications. The comb generator will use a waveguide-based optical parametric gain block technology that can have ultra wideband (>250nm) operation with very high gain (>25dB) in a very compact footprint. This approach ...

  2. High Fidelity Down-Conversion Source for Secure Communications using On-Demand Single Photons

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: O105

    To provide reliably secure communications, development of quantum optical devices for encrypted ground-to-space communications is a necessity. The overall goal of this NASA effort is to develop and deliver efficient, single-pass quantum optical waveguide sources capable of backward quasi-phase-matched interactions for generation of high purity photon pairs for use in an on-demand photon source to ...

  3. Integrated Planar Lightwave Circuits for UV Generation and Phase Modulation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    This SBIR Phase I effort proposes to establish the feasibility of developing a UV Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC); a compact, highly efficient, waveguide-based frequency conversion module for the generation of phase modulated UV radiation for use in multi-wavelength lidar applications such as NASA LaRC's HSRL program. The proposed module will provide phase modulated 355 nm radiation for calibratio ...

  4. Fiber Coupled Pulse Shaper for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Lidar

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I effort will investigate the feasibility of using electro-optic (EO) beam scanning element to control coupling into a fiber as a fiber coupled pulse shaper. The goal of the pulse shaper is to reduce a 4-6ns pulse to 0.4-0.6ns pulse at 1064nm and/or 532nm at input powers at the 2mJ level. The highest utility of the proposed pulse shaper is its progr ...

  5. Sensor System for Super-Pressure Balloon Performance Modeling

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S310

    Long-duration balloon flights are an exciting new area of scientific ballooning, enabled by the development of large super-pressure balloons. As these balloons represent a new form of balloon technology, it follows that there is much to be learned about how these balloons behave in flight. There is a need to collect data on the balloon platform itself in order to better characterize its in-fligh ...

  6. Dropsonde System for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S309

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are assuming more numerous and increasingly important roles in global environmental and atmospheric research. There is a corresponding growth in equipment needs for UAVs so that they may meet their mission goals. Some critical measurement needs can only be satisfied by in-situ measurements. Key examples of such measurements include detailed atmospheric profiles, ...

  7. Uncertainty Quantification in Aerodynamics Simulations

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A205

    The objective of the proposed work (Phases I and II) is to develop uncertainty quantification methodologies and software suitable for use in CFD simulations of aerodynamic flows, ranging from sub-sonic to hypersonic. We will address both pressure and density-based methods, as well as the class of algorithms addressing all-Mach number flows. The software developed here will be based on an existing ...

  8. Analysis and Design Tools for Fluid-Structure Interaction with Multi-Body Flexible Structures

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A205

    The overall objective of this proposal (Phases I and II) is to develop a robust and accurate solver for fluid-structure interaction computations capable of addressing multi-body flexible structures as well as rigid body motion. The fluid flow solution will be performed using our unstructured solution-adaptive flow solver TETHYS. We propose to develop a structural solver based on the Galerkin finit ...

  9. Observation Platform for Dynamic Biomedical and Biotechnology Experiments using the ISS Light Microscopy Module

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O303

    The proposed "Observation platform for dynamic biomedical and biotechnology experiments using the ISS Light Microscopy Module" consists of a platen sized to fit the stage of NASA's Light Microscopy Module (LMM) on the International Space Station (ISS). At the heart of the innovation is a small hollow microscope slide into which specimens and reagent solutions can be injected by a combination of s ...

  10. In Situ Metrology for the Corrective Polishing of Replicating Mandrels

    SBC: Zeeko Technologies, LLC            Topic: S205

    The International X-Ray observatory (IXO) is due to be launched in 2021. The core of the instrument is a very large (3.2 meter diameter) Wolter I optic, to be assembled from approximately 13,000 individual elements. Each element will, in turn, be created by 'slumping' glass over a precision mandrel, of which there must be in excess of 700. In addition to the very large size of the mandrels (up t ...
