  1. Efficient Techniques for Formal Verification of PowerPC 750 Executables

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We will develop an efficient tool for formal verification of PowerPC 750 executables. The PowerPC 750 architecture is used in the radiation-hardened RAD750 flight-control computers that are utilized in many space missions. The resulting tool will be capable of formally checking: 1) the equivalence of two instruction sequences; and 2) properties of a given instruction sequence. The tool will automa ...

  2. UltraSail Solar Sail Flight Experiment

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: S304

    CU Aerospace and its University of Illinois teammate propose the design, sub-component fabrication and preliminary test of an UltraSail "Cubesat" 20 m2 solar sail spacecraft leading to a flight test in low Earth orbit. The complete flight test program consists of: preliminary design and sub-component tests; fabrication and assembly of a University of Illinois Cubesat spacecraft bus adapted to sol ...

  3. High Efficiency, High Mass Specific Power Two-Terminal Solar Cells

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: S303

    Future NASA missions will require significant improvements in photovoltaic energy conversion efficiency (>30%) and mass specific power (>600 W/kg), and improved radiation tolerance. We propose to develop a high efficiency monolithic three-junction, two-terminal solar cell using lattice matched HgCdZnTe and/or HgCdMgTe alloys, which will offer great advantages in terms of weight and interconnect si ...

  4. Quantum Calorimeters Based on HgCdTe Alloys

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: S402

    NASA's next generation of x-ray observation missions require x-ray calorimeters with superior energy resolution. Semimetallic HgTe has already proven itself as an excellent soft x-ray absorber material due to its low heat capacity. Hg0.834Cd0.166Te was shown in Phase 1 to have a heat capacity superior to that of HgTe. Hence Hg0.834Cd0.166Te-based microcalorimeter arrays are expected to have an ene ...

  5. High-Efficiency, High-Temperature, Ultra-Lightweight GaP-Based Solar Cells

    SBC: EpiWorks, Inc.            Topic: S203

    The objective of this proposal is to study and demonstrate novel GaAsNP/GaP/AlGaP technology for use in extreme photovoltaic (PV) energy conversion. NASA and the scientific community are interested in solar missions that go as far as Saturn or even into near sun conditions. Such missions present a challenging problem for PV technology. In addition to the requisite high efficiency and reduced so ...

  6. V-Band Wireless Surface Networks

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: O110

    NASA GLENN RESEARCH CENTER in Topic O1.10 has identified the need to provide surface communications networks for human and robotic missions to explore the Moon and Mars. The network nodes will be located at fixed sites, as well as on robotic vehicles and on humans that are moving about on the surface. The purpose is for relatively short range, but highly reliable, support of bi-directional voice ...

  7. Efficient Radiation Simulation in Complex Geometries with Applications to Planetary Entry

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A206

    NASA aerocapture missions require an accurate evaluation of radiative thermal transport in order to simulate the aerothermal environment around space vehicles. However, present day computation of radiative transport in this complex multi-dimensional environment is frequently done using simple one-dimensional tangent-slab approximations or optically-thick approximations which compromise the accura ...

  8. Lightweight InP Solar Cells for Space Applications

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: S303

    The innovation in this Phase I SBIR is the development of a technology which will enable the manufacture of a lightweight, low cost, InP based compound semiconductor material containing high efficiency multijunction solar cells suitable for deployment in very high altitude, very long endurance solar aircraft. The key technological step is the application of a production-worthy epitaxial liftoff ( ...

  9. Integrated L-Band T/R Module

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: S605

    The goal of this Phase II project is to deliver an integrated L-band transmit/receive (T/R) module which will be fabricated from a GaAs-based combined HBT/PHEMT epistructure. The T/R module will consist of a power amplifier, a low noise amplifier, and two switches. The performance goal for the low noise amplifier is 30 dB gain with a less than 1.0 dB noise figure. The performance goal for the p ...

  10. Dual Use Packaging

    SBC: PROVE IT, LLC            Topic: X1302

    NASA seeks down-weighted packaging compatible with microwave preparation and perhaps high hydrostatic pressure processing. New packaging must satisfy NASA's 3-year storage mandate. Foil laminate containers meet NASA's oxygen, moisture and general shelf life demands; however, their weight, processing and disposal characteristic are not ideal. A previous NASA SBIR examined nanobarrier-containing ...
