  1. A High Repetition Rate, Low Voltage EO Q-Switch for Lightweight Pulsed Laser

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    An all-solid portable lidar system is desired as a prominent instrument for monitoring various atmospheric phenomena. Lidar return signal from targets inherently suffer from noise caused by atmospheric variations. Increasing laser energy and improving receiver photon sensitivity enable longer-range lidar capability but will not always improve the lidar system performance. The laser pulse repetitio ...

  2. A Long-Duration Commercial Microgravity Mouse Habitat: Waste/Odor Technologies

    SBC: Bioastronautical Systems Development Co.            Topic: N/A

    The Bioastronautical Systems Development Company (BSDC) proposes to develop habitat technologies for conducting long-term commercial research with mice in microgravity. Our research addresses solicitation section B4.02 Space Commercialization for the design/development of microgravity payloads for space station applications that lead to commercial products or services. In partnership with BioServe ...

  3. A Photon Counting Fiber Optic Scintillator Dosimeter

    SBC: Boston Science            Topic: N/A

    A Photon Counting Fiber Optic Scintillator Dosimeter will be constructed to extend the range of useful measurements around low energy photon sources. A micromachined plastic scintillator will be bonded to the end of a fiber optic cable. A photon counting detector package will be constructed to receive the light from the scintillator and record the count rate. Neutral density filters will be employ ...

  4. All-digital, CMOS-based Photodiode Camera

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CCDs (Charge-Coupled Devices), and more recently, CMOS (complementary-symmetry metal-oxide-semiconductor) APS (Active Pixel Sensor) cameras have revolutionized imaging instrumentation and the many fields that utilize these instruments. Both of these technologies rely on detecting, or integrating, the analog photo-current generated in each pixel, which limits their sensitivity and bandwidth. Counti ...

  5. An Autonomous Wireless Instrumentation Network for Antarctic Research

    SBC: VEXCEL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    In November 1998 a network of seismic stations was deployed by S. Anandakrishnan (now at Penn State) and others in West Antarctica. These autonomous stations returned state-of-health data via satellite, and stored high-volume instrument data for later retrieval. The satellite links demonstrated a novel and sophisticated application of technology to the problem of retrieving in situ data from harsh ...

  6. Autonomous Intelligent Health Monitoring for Robust Fault-Tolerant Control of Multi-Modal System

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of this project is to develop a robust autonomous intelligent real-time system for Uninhabited Aerial Combat Vehicles (UCAV) to achieve the desired flight performance by integrating effective Health Monitoring and Failure Detection and Identification (HM-FDI) with optimal control strategies to accommodate unanticipated failures and multiple modes of operation. SSCI has already don ...

  7. Autonomous Resource Allocation and Task Management for Multi-Spacecraft Formation

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous multiple spacecraft represent a critical enabling technology for future space missions. Currently, significant pre-flight planning and ground tasking are needed to design operational sequences for single-spacecraft missions. Multiple-spacecraft missions (especially formation flying tasks) dramatically increase the complexity of planning, sequencing and tasking, rendering them possibly i ...

  8. Biodegradable Nanocomposites for Advanced Packaging

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TDA Research, Inc. proposes to develop a biodegradable food packaging material that will address the issues of extended-life food storage and waste disposal in space. On long-term space missions, on board the International Space Station, or on future lunar or planetary facilities, a biodegradable food packaging plastic could be disposed of in composting environments that support agricultural produ ...

  9. Cockpit System Situational Awarness Modeling Tool

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    The Cockpit System Situational Awareness Modeling Tool will use the principles of discrete event simulation to predict pilot situational awareness (SA). The human performance modeling environment of IMPRINT combined with the cognitive modeling tool ACT-R will provide a powerful tool for the designers of cockpit systems. IMPRINT can already be used to predict pilot workload and assess the effects o ...

  10. Compact, Turnable Diode Laser for Water-Vapor Spectroscopy

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a compact external cavity stabilization system, which will employ independent electro-optic control over the optical path length of the cavity and a wavelength-selective element. The system should be able to cover a 30 nm range and give mode-hop-free tuning over 20 nm intervals. The design of the feedback system will be compatible with any commercially available laser diode from 63 ...
