  1. Sustained Low Altitude Lunar Orbital Missions (SLALOMs)

    SBC: Advanced Space LLC            Topic: H9

    Absent an atmosphere, the limit for a minimum-orbit altitude (lt; 50 km) at the Moon, or other airless body, is currently bounded by the technological limitations of the guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) subsystem. Breakthrough improvements in this subsystem will enable new scientific investigations, such as (1) low altitude, direct sampling of the lunar particles naturally lofted by the com ...

  2. An Airborne Continuous Flow Diffusion Chamber for Measuring Ice Nucleating Particles

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: S1

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding climate and environmental change, a NASA objective. The formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles (INP), and has major implications for precipitation and cloud properties. Observational capabilities are required to advance understanding o ...

  6. Single Photon Counting LIDAR Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: S1

    Sensors for spaceborne aerosol, cloud, and ocean (ACO) lidar must possess very wide dynamic range to cover the weakest stratospheric returns from the Rayleigh region and the strongest atmospheric targets, such as bright water clouds and strong reflections from the ocean surface. Currently this is not possible using a single sensor. To address NASArsquo;s need for next-generation spaceborne lidar s ...

  10. Pressure Sensors for Glenn Extreme Environment Rig and Planetary Science Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: S1

    In-situ instrumentation is needed that can withstand the harsh environments imposed by planetary atmospheres in order to make advancements in solar system exploration. Technologies that can withstand the corrosive/caustic gases, radiation levels, stresses, and high temperatures and pressures, while still producing reliable, real-time data are a major facilitator for planetary missions. To address ...
