  1. 3-D Docking Sensor Algorithms

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: F501

    Michigan Aerospace Corporation has been funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) over the past several years to investigate on-orbit satellite docking and servicing technology. One of the key technologies required for all of those operations (rendezvous, docking, and inspection) is the sensor. For rendezvous and docking, the guidance senso ...

  2. 3-D LASER IMAGER

    SBC: Daedalus Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY FOR DESIGNING A 3-D LASER IMAGER CONSISTING OF A MODULATED LASER AND A HIGH-FREQUENCY VIDEO CAMERA THAT WOULD BE VERY COMPACT AND HAVE NO MOVING PARTS. THE PROPOSED 3-D LASER IMAGER WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY ONE-TENTH THE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND WOULD HAVE MUCH LOWER POWER REQUIREMENTS THAN MECHANICALLY DRIVEN 3-D LASER SCANNERS WITH COMPARABLE PERFORM ...

  3. 355nm Photon-Recycled Fringe Imager for HSRL

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: S101

    The proposed work is to develop a high-efficiency aircraft-qualified Fabry-Perot-based interferometer for the High Spectral Resolution LIDAR (HSRL). Through this Phase I effort, Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) will perform instrument simulations to optimize a photon-recycled fringe imaging receiver to meet the HSRL measurement requirements. Photon-recycled fringe imaging technology incorporat ...

  4. 3D Warping Actuation Driven Dynamic Camber Control Concept for Helicopter Rotor Blades

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: A210

    In a rotorcraft, optimized camber change not only reduces vibratory hub loads and noise but also increases available thrust and improved flight control augmentation. Therefore, the ability to dynamically change airfoil camber is a significant technology advancement leading to improved overall rotorcraft performance. Research efforts in recent years have led to the application of active material ac ...

  5. 6 CFM Electrochemical Hydrogen Pump and Compressor

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: X102

    Hydrogen is an essential resource for space missions. NASA has a need for equipment to generate, handle and store hydrogen. In terms of handling hydrogen, conventional rotating mechanical pumps and compressors require extensive modification and have limited reliability. Electrochemical pumping and compression of hydrogen occurs without any moving parts and is highly reliable and efficient. Sustain ...

  6. A C-Band Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) Detection and Mitigation Testbed

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: E104

    Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) can render microwave radiometer measurements useless. We propose a method and an architecture that can be used to identify sources of RFI and be used to identify an optimal scheme for the mitigation of RFI. The system consists of a fully functional digital radiometer that can collect data in the field and pipe the pre-detected signal into, for example, a spectr ...

  7. A Catalytically Stabilized Lean Direct Injection Combustor for Advanced Subsonic Technology Emissions Reduction

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1998 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. A COMPACT SOLID-STATE RANGE SENSOR WITH MILLIMETER DEPTH RESOLUTION

    SBC: CLARK-MXR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE A HIGH-RESOLUTIONACTIVE RANGING SYSTEM USING LOW-TEMPERATURE-GROWN (LTG) GAAS PHOTOCONDUCTORS AS DEPTH SENSORS. THESE NEWLY-DEVELOPED SOLID-STATE DEVICES ARE CHARACTERIZED BY AN EXCEPTIONALLY BROAD FREQUENCY RESPONSE (UP TO 375 GHZ @ -3 DB) AND A VERY HIGH SENSITIVITY (70% QUANTUM EFFICIENCY). TO REDUCE THE NOISE BACKGROUND THEY CAN BE GATED ON A PICOSECO ...

  9. A Compact, Efficient Pyrolysis/Oxidation System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery in Space

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: X203

    Both pyrolysis and oxidation steps have been considered as the key solid waste processing step for a Controlled Ecological Life Support System (CELSS). Pyrolysis is more amenable to handling mixed solid waste streams in a microgravity environment, but produces a more complex product stream. Oxidation (incineration) produces a simpler product stream, but the oxidation of mixed solids is a complex u ...
