  5. ARCSTONE Improvements

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase II effort will advance a new ARCSTONE instrument for calibrating lunar reflectance from TRL 2 to TRL 4. The new instrument, conceived in the Phase I effort, will be much smaller than first-generation units and fit within a 6U satellite payload with substantial margin. This system will utilize a single focal plane array and span the spectral range of 350-2,300 nm. Optical modeling i ...

  7. Innovative Hydrogen Peroxide Turbopump Design for Affordable Small Launch Vehicles.

    SBC: FRONTIER ASTRONAUTICS, LLC            Topic: Z9

    The concept proposed is that of an innovative turbopump using hydrogen peroxide to drive the turbine. The turbopump has a unique feature in that it has an integral electric generator used to generate electricity and power an external fuel pump.By using hydrogen peroxide decomposed over a catalyst pack only one fluid can be used to drive the turbine. Typically, a turbopump combusts a fuel and an ox ...
