  1. Venus Imaging Camera

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: S4

    The ability to image in harsh environments such as Venus is of interest and use including for missions to the surface of Venus. Today overwhelmingly almost all video cameras are based on silicon charge coupled devices (CCDs); however CCDs are not suited for and not capable of functioning at high/extreme temperature environments such as surface and atmosphere of Venus. Vidicons and similar types of ...

  2. An Innovative sub-mmWAVE/THz Noise Chip Using PIC Technology

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: S1

    Leveraging the recent breakthroughs in manufacturing of ultrafast photonics devices such as PIN-PD or UTC-PD, and in the drastic improvement in cost and performance of ASE, we propose to transform our commercial high ENR noise sources, currently operated under 110 GHz, into an integrated noise diode chip operating in sub-mmWave/THz.nbsp; The proposed noise diode chip is an ideal source to calibrat ...

  5. Radiation-Resistant High-Resolution Particle Sensors from Composites of Semiconductor Nanoparticles and Aramid Nanofibers

    SBC: Amphionic LLC            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase I project will demonstrate that high radiation-resistance can be elicited from nanostructured media comprised of semiconducting nanoparticles derived from size-governed wide band-gap CdTe or PbTe. In order to transform space-based particle sensors, nanocrystalline semiconductors provide an attractive material basis because they present a means of: 1) decreasing the underlying mater ...

  7. Vacuum-Regenerable Trace Contaminant Control for Exploration Portable Life Support System

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: H4

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes a compact, vacuum-regenerable sorbent bed for effectively removing a broad range of trace contaminants, meeting all topic performance requirements, which can be integrated with the Exploration Portable Life Support System (xPLSS) CO2/H2O removal system. Both the primary trace contaminants (ammonia, CO, formaldehyde, and methyl mercaptan) as well as other s ...
