  1. Infrared Microspectrometer based on MEOMS Lamellar Grating Interferometer

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: T401

    Infrared spectroscopy is an invaluable detection and measurement tool intensively used in Earth Science, Solar Physics and Astrophysics experiments pursued from satellite platforms. The geometrical characteristics and sensitivity of satellite infrared spectroscopy systems is often determined or limited by their optical elements. Improvements in optical components allow one to reduce the mass and i ...

  2. Scalable Parallel Algorithms for Formal Verification of Software

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: A120

    We will develop a prototype of a GPU-based parallel Binary Decision Diagram (BDD) software package. BDDs are a data structure that satisfies some simple restrictions, resulting in a unique representation of a Boolean function regardless of its actual implementation. This property of BDDs allows the efficient solution of many problems. The proposed tool will exploit multi-core CPUs and the thousand ...

  3. Fast Flow Cavity Enhanced Ozone Monitor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S108

    Naturally occurring in the stratosphere, ozone plays a significant role in many atmospheric reactions, cloud formation, and is the key player in shielding harmful UV radiation. In the troposphere, it is a criteria pollutant produced via photochemical smog reactions, and is key in the formation of organic aerosols from VOCs. A better understanding on the distribution of ozone and its influences o ...

  5. Improved Combustion Products Monitor for the ISS

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: X303

    The Compound Specific Analyzer - Combustion Products is used on the International Space Station as a warning monitor of smoldering or combustion events and, after any fire event, to indicate that toxic gas levels have subsided for safe re-entry of the crew to the affected area. This monitor is being phased out of service.Southwest Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a replacement laser-based sensor ...

  6. Robust optical carbon dioxide isotope analyzer

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S108

    Isotopic analysis of carbon dioxide is an important tool for characterization of the exchange and transformation of carbon between the biosphere and the atmosphere. These measurements require highly accurate and precise instruments that are capable of providing isotopic abundances to discriminate between man-made and natural carbon sources. Laser-based isotopic measurements offer the Earth Scien ...

  7. Load-Bearing Inflatables Using Light-Curing Rigidization Technology

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X501

    NASA is soliciting new concepts for lightweight stabilized inflatables in regards to low weight, high storage density, and ease of deployment. What most of the inflatable concepts are lacking is the ability for integrated structural members that do not require permanent inflation pressure. Any structure requiring inflation pressure for structural stability becomes hazardous in case of puncture d ...

  8. Adaptive Bioassistive and Telerobotic Devices for Human-Robotic Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: X702

    CU Aerospace and team partner, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, propose to perform innovative research and development that targets the design and control of adaptive bioassistive and telerobotic devices - ABATRODs - that augment normal musculoskeletal function in rapidly changing and disruptive environments while providing predictable response. ABATRODs accommodate fast changes in ...

  9. Magnetometer for Balloons and UAVs

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S108

    This Phase I SBIR project will investigate a new, low-cost approach to atomic magnetometry that is suited for operation from UAVs and research balloons. Atomic magnetometers have been available for decades, but they remain expensive and relatively power-hungry, restricting their use to a small range of platforms. The proposed approach should result in a magnetometer selling at a cost point signifi ...

  10. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping


    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...
