  2. Monolithic, High-Speed Fiber-Optic Switching Array for Lidar

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: E102

    The proposed optical device is a fiber-based multi-channel switch to quickly switch a fiber-coupled laser among many possible output channels to create a fiber-based fixed-array laser transmitter for next-generation NASA lidar systems. The key innovation is the use of an arrangement of electro-optic prisms created in a nonlinear optical crystal through domain reversal to direct the laser into one ...

  3. Low-Power, Lightweight Cloud Water Content Sensor

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: E103

    The water content of clouds, whether in liquid or ice form, is a key variable to be measured when either calibrating remote sensing systems or when calculating the climatological effects of clouds. While a variety of sensors exist for making these measurements, all of the existing sensors require far too much power or other energy input to be used on small platforms with limited payloads such as ...

  4. Non-Intrusive, Real-Time, On-Line Temperature Sensor for Superheated Hydrogen at High Pressure and High Flow

    SBC: Cook's Advanced Energy Conversion, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The SSC needs a hydrogen temperature sensor that can provide high accuracy, fast response and can be operated on a superheated hydrogen (SHH2) environment. This will help prepare the SSC testing facility to support the new NASA mission for US space exploration as proposed by the President in January 2004. Here, we propose to develop an innovative, non-intrusive temperature sensor based on Spontan ...

  5. Application of Advanced Electromagnetic Arrays to High Efficiency, High Bandwidth, Redundant Linear Actuators

    SBC: Kinetic Art and Technology Corporation            Topic: X604

    The proposed SBIR effort will employ a systems approach to develop motor/controller/screw element systems adequate for demanding launch thrust vector control and control surface actuator applications. This approach will utilize high bandwidth, high efficiency, redundant motor systems coupled with appropriately paired motor controls. The actuator system will consist of a high efficiency permanen ...

  6. Real Time, Non-intrusive Detection of Liquid Nitrogen in Liquid Oxygen (LOX) at High Pressure and High Flow

    SBC: Mississippi Ethanol, LLC            Topic: T901

    Technical Abstract The Stennis Space Center (SSC) needs the sensors that are capable and can be operated in liquid oxygen (LOX) and or liquid hydrogen (LH2) cryogenic environment to improve SSC cryogenic testing. In particular, SSC would like to develop a sensor to monitor the quality of LOX in the delivery line during the testing of a rocket engine. Spontaneous Raman scattering (SRS) with its r ...

  7. Low Permeability Polyimide Insulation

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: X602

    Resodyn Technologies proposes a new technology that enables the application of polyimide based cryogenic insulation with low hydrogen permeability. This effort supports the Vision for U.S. Space Exploration policy and the Exploration Systems Enterprise. This technology will benefit designers of cryogenic fuel tanks envisioned for new Earth-to-Orbit (ETO) Transportation vehicles. Specifically th ...

  8. User Centric Data Acquisition and Delivery Sytems for Precision Ag

    SBC: NVISION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The availability of remotely sensed data has been improving with each new high-resolution satellite obtaining operational capability in orbit. However, the ability of commercial and government entities to efficiently share or sell this data has not kept pace. The proposed GeoSpatial data distribution system will exploit recent improvements in advanced computing environments and processing algorit ...

  9. Miniature Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Space and Extraterrestrial Applications

    SBC: Opti-MS Corporation            Topic: S405

    Using a revolutionary ion-focusing scheme developed at Mississippi State University (provisional patent filed) we will be able to design and build a compact laser based time-of-flight mass spectrometer that is capable of detecting a wide range of masses. Mass resolution of above 104 can be achieved from 300 to c.a. 70,000 Daltons and above 3000 from 20 to 1.5'105 Daltons, making it possible to ana ...

  10. Precise Automatic Image Coregistration Tools to Enable Pixel-Level Change Detection

    SBC: Positive Systems, Inc.            Topic: E401

    Automated detection of land cover changes between multitemporal images (i.e., images captured at different times) has long been a goal of the remote sensing discipline. Most technology in this area has focused on methods for detecting and identifying land cover or surface object changes in two or more images, but precise co-registration of images remains a key challenge. In fact, image-to-image r ...
