  2. Processor for Real-Time Atmospheric Compensation in Long-Range Imaging

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: O203

    Range surveillance is a critical component of space exploration because of its implications on safety, cost, and overall mission timeline. However, launch delays, due to the difficulty of verifying a cleared range, are common and will increase as spaceports are developed in new areas. In order to expedite range clearance, it is vital to see "through" the atmosphere. Unfortunately, the quality ...

  3. Broadband Advanced Spectral System

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: S603

    NovaSol proposes to develop an advanced hyperspectral imaging system for earth science missions named BRASS (Broadband Advanced Spectral System). BRASS combines state-of-the-art, existing NASA detector technology and proven electronics with a novel spectrometer design to provide a compact instrument that covers the full wavelength range from 0.4 to 5 ?m. Applications for such an instrument range f ...

  4. High-Density Diffraction Imaging and Non-Imaging Grating Elements for EUV and X-ray Spectroscopy Fabricated by DUV Reduction Photolithography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: S404

    There is a need for lightweight high-density (4000+ lines/mm) novel diffraction grating elements in modern telescopes to advance EUV and X-ray astrophysics. Current grating technologies (ruling and holographic beam interference) do not provide optimal solution for all grating requirements. In response to NASA request, we propose to apply state-of-the art DUV reduction photolithographic tools dev ...

  5. Model-Based Design Tools for Extending COTS Components To Extreme Environments

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: S402

    The innovation in this project is model-based design (MBD) tools for predicting the performance and useful life of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components and COTS-based systems beyond their rated temperature range. Phase I results have shown the feasibility of these tools, which consist of novel modeling tools and advanced system and data analysis capability. The modeling tools differ from all ...

  6. Tank Bladders for Advanced Monopropellants

    SBC: MICROPHASE COATINGS, INC.            Topic: S804

    In response to RFP S8.04 Spacecraft Propulsion, innovations in propulsion technologies are needed to increase the capabilities of the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) spacecraft. Towards this need, MicroPhase Coatings, Inc. (MPCI) proposes tank bladders compatible with advanced monopropellants. MPCI is well underway in development of polymer liners for lightweight propulsion tanks for containme ...

  7. Fast Picometer Mirror Mount

    SBC: Nightsky Systems, Inc.            Topic: S404

    The proposed innovation is a 6DOF controllable mirror mount with high dynamic range and fast tip/tilt capability for space based applications. It will enable the actuation of large (~1m) mirrors over centimeter stroke with low bandwidth to correct deployment errors, provide sub-micron correction of thermal distorsion with picometer precision, and enable nanometer/nanoradian tip/tilt wavefront cor ...

  8. Catalytic Decomposition of Gaseous Byproducts from Heat Melt Waste Compaction

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: B306

    Several solid waste management systems currently under development result in the production of gas-phase organic contaminants which, due to the periodic and unpredictable nature of solid wastes and contaminants produced by these systems, cannot be treated by the Trace Contaminant Control System. Two examples of these are the Heat Melt Compaction System under development at NASA - Ames Research Ce ...

  9. Methane Pyrolysis for Hydrogen & Carbon Nanotube Recovery from Sabatier Products

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: B301

    Development of a microgravity and hypogravity compatible catalytic methane pyrolysis reactor is proposed to recover hydrogen which is lost as methane in the conversion of carbon dioxide to water via the Sabatier process. This will close the hydrogen loop which currently requires 50% resupply and also produce carbon nanotubes, a high value product which may be employed as an adsorbent or catalyst ...

  10. Microgravity Compatible Gas-Liquid Separation using Capillary Pressure Gradients

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: X1207

    An innovative microgravity and hypogravity compatible Gas-Liquid Separator (GLS) is proposed. This novel GLS consists of an ordered array of variable sized water repellant granular particles that result in a spatial surface energy density gradient within the GLS. The resultant capillary pressure causes gas and water to flow toward different outlet GLS positions. The device contains no moving pa ...
