  1. Compact Instrument for Measurement of Atmospheric Carbon Monoxide

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S108

    Southwest Sciences proposes to continue the development of a rugged, compact, and automated instrument for the high sensitivity measurement of tropospheric carbon monoxide (CO) and methane. The application of recently developed room temperature vertical cavity diode lasers (VCSELs)operating near 2300 nm permits the development of sensitive and rugged instrumentation for measurement of both atmosph ...

  2. High-Precision Instrumentation for CO2 Isotope Ratio Measurements

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: S108

    Knowing atmospheric 13CO2/12CO2 ratios precisely is important to understanding biogenic and anthroprogenic sources and sinks for carbon. Currently available field deployable instrumentation have unfavourable attributes such as high power requirements, are extremely expensive, are too large, are not proven or designed to run continuously or unattended for extended periods, and/or are unable to pr ...

  3. Radiation Hard Electronics for Advanced Communication Systems

    SBC: ICS LLC            Topic: O102

    Advanced reconfigurable/reprogrammable communication systems will require use of commercial sub 100 nm electronics. Legacy radiation tolerant circuits fail to provide Single Event Upset (SEU) immunity at speeds greater than 500 MHz. New base level logic circuits are needed to provide SEU immunity for high speed circuits afforded by sub 100 nm technology. A completely new circuit and system appr ...

  4. Inexpensive Compact Sensor for In Situ Sulfur Dioxide Measurement in Volcanic Gas Plumes

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: S108

    Volcanic research is a significant part of the "Earth Surface & Interior" focus area of the NASA Earth Science program. Of particular interest are sensors for measuring the chemical composition and emission rate of gases released by volcanoes, from magma to the atmosphere, both prior to and during eruptions. The vast majority of ground based plume observations concern sulfur dioxide ...

  5. Inexpensive Instrument for In Situ Characterization of Particulate Matter in Volcanic Ash Plumes

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: S108

    Volcanic research is a significant part of the "Earth Surface & Interior" focus area of the NASA Earth Science program. After a volcanic eruption, the smallest ash particles can remain in the atmosphere for days to months affecting public health in the surrounding regions and the radiation balance on Earth. Airborne volcanic ash particulate matter (PM) also poses a major threat to av ...

  6. Optical Refrigeration for Dramatically Improved Cryogenic Technology

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: The demonstration of 155 Kelvin refrigeration by optical cooling performed by the co-PIs of this proposal is a first step toward revolutionizing Air Force cryogenic systems. The stated focus of this STTR solicitation is"developing the concepts of a solid-state optical cryocooler that can approach 100 K with a cooling power exceeding 200 mW."To achieve this performance, a crucial propose ...

  7. Nonintrusive Diagnostics for Off-Body Measurements in Flight Experiments

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT07

    ABSTRACT: Developing the quick strike capability of the Air Force requires hypersonic testing using advanced instrumentation to determine key aerodynamic parameters. A novel method for stand-off measurement of gas velocity is proposed. The method should operate over a wide dynamic range, from still air to hypersonic velocities. The method is non-contacting, precise, and spatially-resolved. It doe ...

  8. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  9. VLSI CMOS-memristor Building-block for Future Autonomous Air Platforms

    SBC: NUGENT, MICHAEL ALEXANDER            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: We propose a revolutionary method for constructing autonomous self-organizing circuits via memristive and CMOS technologies for use in autonomous flying vehicles. Our method utilizes a simple but powerful plasticity rule that can be mapped to the physics of memristive devices acting as synaptic elements whiten neuromorphic circuits. Through self-configuration of router and logic struc ...

  10. Synthetic Scenery for Tracking System Evaluation

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF10BT33

    ABSTRACT: Recent Airborne Tactical Laser (ATL) field testing demonstrated that high-energy laser (HEL)-induced obscurants could break the tracking systems lock on the aimpoint, negating the HEL attack. When an HEL engages a target surface, particles may be emitted from the surface that obscure the target, change the optical signature, and attenuate the beam on target due to scatter and absorptio ...
