  2. Flash3D EDL Sensor Technology Advancement

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: S501

    3D Flash LIDAR is ideal for determining real-time spacecraft trajectory, speed, orientation, and range to the planet surface, as well as evaluating potential hazards at the landing site. The "framing camera" nature, of 3D Flash LIDAR systems, makes them well suited as hazard avoidance sensors for EDL. The Phase II effort seeks to improve the range precision of the existing TigerEyeTM 3D Flash LI ...

  3. Handheld IR Raman Spectroscopy for Rapid Chemical Identification

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: CBD08102

    In Phase I, Aerius Photonics demonstrated Raman spectroscopy at 785 nm, 980 nm, and 1064 nm, with only 1064 nm-based excitation showing a reduction in fluorescence. In addition, Aerius Photonics and partner Ahura Scientific, demonstrated a breadboard version of an InGaAs-based Raman spectrometer to assess any engineering challenges. By the end of a Phase III, Aerius proposes to develop a handheld ...

  5. Composite Matrix Systems for Cryogenic Applications

    SBC: APPLIED POLERAMIC INCORPORATED            Topic: X405

    As an alternative material to aluminum-lithium, cryotanks developed from fiber reinforced composites can offer significant weight savings in applications for fuel containment of liquid oxygen and hydrogen. For composite materials to be accepted and utilized in these structures, they must be resistant to microcracking. It is the objective of this work to develop a matrix system for aerospace compos ...

  6. Laser Ablation- Optical Cavity Isotopic Spectrometer (LAOCIS)

    SBC: Applied Spectra, Inc.            Topic: S109

    We propose the detailed conceptual development of a device for analyzing key isotopic composition in surface materials without sample preparation. We will combine absorption spectroscopy with laser induced vaporization of solid samples for high-resolution isotopic measurements. An immediate focus is on Mars but our concept is also highly germane to other applications relevant to bio- and geochemic ...

  7. Regenerators for Liquid Hydrogen Cryocoolers

    SBC: ATLAS SCIENTIFIC            Topic: X701

    Future NASA exloration, planetary and astrophysics missions will require various enhancements in multi-stage cryocoolers. These include increased efficiency, reduced vibration and reductions in overall system mass and power consumption. For the small coolers required, pulse tube and Stirling coolers offer the best opportunities. At present, the efficiency of these coolers is limited by the effecti ...

  8. Small Space Platform Enhanced Internet Protocol Stack Device

    SBC: Broadata Communications, Inc.            Topic: S401

    Wireless communication of small, nano and micro satellites will play a vital role to NASA mission and marketability of the satellite. The use of an Internet-based protocol, especially TCP/IP, can provide seamless network command and control continuity between terrestrial and space-based platforms and environments, as well as between distributed ground and space stations. However, long propagation ...

  9. Low Cost LWIR Interferometric HSI System

    SBC: Spectrum Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD09108

    Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration of uncooled microbolometer technologies to determine the potential for reducing detector cost and com ...
