  1. PROTOTYPE EUV SPECTROMETER FOR OPERATIONAL MONITORING OF SOLAR EUV FLUX

    SBC: International Radiation Detectors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SILICON PHOTODIODES WITH STABLE, THEORETICALLY PREDICTABLE QUANTUM EFFICIENCY IN THE XUV SPECTRAL RANGE HAVE BEEN RECENTLY DEVELOPED BY RAJ KORDE AND SCIENTISTS AT NIST. SCIENTISTS AT BESSY AND PTB IN GERMANY HAVE INDEPENDENTLY CONFIRMED THAT THE CALCULATED QUANTUM EFFICIENCY OF THESE XUV SILICON DIODES CAN BE USED FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN INDEPENDENT RESPONSIVITY SCALE IN THE XUV SPECTRAL RANG ...

  2. SPATIAL SERVER DATA MODELLING AND SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Semantic Solutions Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DATA INTENSIVE APPLICATIONS PLACE A BURDEN ON EXISTING DATABASE SYSTEMS. ESPECIALLY ACUTE ARE THE REQUIREMENTS PLACED BY APPLICATIONS THAT REQUIRE DATABASE SEMANTICS BEYOND THE SCOPE OF EXISTING ENVIRONMENTS. WORK IN OBJECT-ORIENTED DATABASE TECHNIQUES PROMISES TO ALLEVIATE SOME OF THESE PROBLEMS. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN EXTENSIBLE DATABASE ENVIRONMENTS WILL SUPPORT THE INTEGRATION OF OBJECTAPPROAC ...

  3. COMPACT RUGGED LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETER PROBE FOR IN-FLIGHTGAS TURBINE INLET FLOW MEASUREMENT

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MEASUREMENTS OF THE INLET FLOW FIELDS OF AIRCRAFT PROPULSIONSYSTEMS ARE IMPORTANT IN DEFINING THE THRUST AND EFFICIENCY OF THESE ENGINES AS WELL AS IN FLIGHT SAFETY WHEN EXECUTING AVOIDANCE MANEUVERS. THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A NON-INTRUSIVE LASER-DOPPLER VELOCIMETER (LDV) PROBE THAT IS COMPACT AND RUGGED ENOUGH TO PERFORM THESE MEASUREMENTS IN FLIGHT. THIS LDV PROBE WILL REPLACE THE MORE INTRUSI ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  5. REMOTE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR ARC JET TEMPERATURE AND DENSITY

    SBC: Deacon Research            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPERTIES OF THE SHOCK-CREATED PLASMA CREATED DURING ATMOSPHERIC RE-ENTRY (WHICH CAN BE SIMULATED IN THE LABORATORY USING AN ARC JET FLOW) MUST BE KNOWN TO CONTROL THE PROBLEM OF SPACECRAFT HEATING, BOTH DIRECTLY AND BY HOT GAS TRANSPORT TO THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE. WE WILL INVESTIGATE THE USE OF LASER-INDUCED FLOURESCENCE (LIF) TO OBTAIN DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT THESE PROPERTIES. THIS TECHN ...

  6. IN-FLIGHT FLOW VELOCITY SENSOR

    SBC: Deacon Research            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING AIRSPEED SENSORS ARE BOUND TO THE AIRFRAME SURFACE AND SAMPLE THE FLOW WITHIN THE BOW-WAVE PERTURBATION ZONE WHERE AIRSPEED AND ANGLE-OF-ATTACK INFORMATION ARE INTERMIXED. THIS INNOVATION COMBINES RECENTLY DEVELOPED TECHNOLOGIES THAT ENABLE FLOW MEASUREMENTS OFF THE AIRFRAME SURFACE IN THE FREESTREAM BEYOND THE BOW-WAVE. NARROW-BAND DIODE LASER TECHNOLOGY COUPLED WITH HIGH-POWER LASER DIO ...

  7. AN UNDERWATER REMOTELY OPERATED VEHICLE TO TEST ENHANCED HUMAN INTERFACES

    SBC: Deep Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AN UNDERWATER, REMOTELY OPERATED VEHICLE (ROV) SYSTEM DESIGNED TO EVALUATE ENHANCED HUMAN INTERFACES WITH TELEROBOTIC AND AUTOMATED DEVICES THAT MAY ULTIMATELY BE USED IN SPACE. THE UNDERWATER ENVIRONMENT OFFERS AN IMMEDIATELY ACCESSIBLE "SPACE ANALOG" IN WHICH TO CONDUCT THESE TESTS. SOME OF THESE CONCEPTS, SUCH AS SPECIALIZED ELECTRONIC-VISION SYSTEMS AND AUDIO-TACTILE ...

  8. IMPROVED SOLAR CELL COVER-GLASSES COATED BY LOW PRESSURE CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION

    SBC: Deposition Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED OPTICAL COATINGS FOR SOLAR CELL COVERS THAT REJECT BOTH INFRARED AND ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION WILL BE DEVELOPED BY USING ADVANCED DESIGN CONCEPTS AND LOW-PRESSURE, CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (LPCVD) TECHNOLOGY. ADVANCED THIN-FILM DESIGN SOFTWARE WILL BE USED TO SIMULATE THREE MATERIAL DESIGNS USING THIN LAYERS OF TWO MATERIALS. THESE DESIGNS WILL PROVIDE REJECTION IN THE ULTRAVIOLET AND INFRA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1992 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. AN ULTRA-HIGH RESOLUTION PLUME ANOMALOUS SPECIE DETECTION SYSTEM FOR SSME ENGINE PRE-FLIGHT TESTING

    SBC: Duncan Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A VERY SENSITIVE DETECTION SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED TO MEASURE CONCENTRATIONS OF METALLIC SPECIES IN THE SPACE SHUTTLE MAIN ENGINE (SSME) PLUME AT THE NOZZLE EXIT. THE SYSTEM WILL HAVE A DETECTION RANGE FROM 1 PPB TO 1000 PPB, ALLOWING DE-TECTION OF WEAR AND INCIPIENT FAILURE. IT IS NON-INTRUSIVE, CAN OPERATE ON TESTS STANDS WITH AND WITHOUT A DIFFUSER IN PLACE, AND USES NARROWLINE ABSORPTION TO M ...

  10. AERODYNAMIC CONTROL OF AIRCRAFT USING MINIATURE ROTATABLE NOSE-BOOM STRAKES

    SBC: ROLLING HILLS RESEARCH CORP            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS AN INNOVATIVE METHOD OF ENHANCING THE CONTROLLABILITY OF AIRCRAFT AT MODERATE-TO-HIGH ANGLES-OF-ATTACK (AOA) BY CONTROLLING THE FOREBODY VORTEX FLOW WITH ROTATABLE NOSE-BOOM STRAKES. THE IDEA IS TO CONTROL THE ASYMMETRY OF THE NOSE-BOOM WAKE BY PLACING SMALL, MOVABLE STRAKES ON THE NOSE-BOOM. THE WAKE THEN ACTS AS A CONTROLLED PERTURBATION ON THE FOREBODY FLOW AND SUBSE ...
