  1. 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 ...

  2. Echo Time Distance Measurements for Nanosatellite Arrays

    SBC: American Academy of Aeronautics            Topic: S401

    This proposal presents a technique for the precise determination of distance between nodes of a planar array of nanosatellites for synthetic aperture and sensor array applications. The proposed effort will result in a navigational technique that can precisely determine the positions of nanosatellite sensor nodes in the array. The proposed innovation enables higher performance and low cost sensor a ...

  3. Advanced Long-Range Video Capabilities Using Speckle Imaging Techniques

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A402

    Flight-testing is a crucial component in NASA's mission to research and develop of new aeronautical concepts, allowing for verification of simulated and wind-tunnel results, and exposing previously unforeseen design problems. Video is an invaluable tool for flight-testing, allowing the collection of a wealth of information; however, collected long-range imagery typically suffers from scintill ...

  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. OpenCL-Based Linear Algebra Libraries for High-Performance Computing

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: S601

    Despite its promise, OpenCL adoption is slow, owing to a lack of libraries and tools. Vendors have shown few signs of plans to provide OpenCL libraries, and were they to do so they would likely be incompatible with one another, much as NVIDIA's BLAS (CUDA) is presently not interchangeable with Intel's BLAS (MKL). The unified language and environment of OpenCL allows the community to ensu ...

  8. ISS Additive Manufacturing Facility for On-Demand Fabrication in Space

    SBC: Made In Space, Inc.            Topic: O302

    The ability to manufacture on the International Space Station will enable on-demand repair and production capability, as well as essential research for manufacturing on long-term missions.Having an Additive Manufacturing Facility (AMF) on the ISS will allow for immediate repair of essential components, upgrades of existing hardware, installation of new hardware that is manufactured, and the manufa ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
