  1. TECHNOLOGY FOR PRESSURE-INSTRUMENTED THIN AIRFOIL MODELS

    SBC: Applied Cryogenics & Materials            Topic: N/A

    PRESSURE INSTRUMENTED AIRFOIL MODELS FOR TESTING IN CRYOGENIC WIND TUNNELS DEMAND THE SIMULTANEOUS ACHIEVEMENT OF MANY FACTORS INCLUDING STRENGTH, TOUGHNESS, DIMENSIONAL STABILITY, MACHINABILITY, BONDABILITY, ACCURACY OF PROFILE AND SURFACE FINISH. MANY PREVIOUS MODELS HAVE FAILED TO REACH COMPLETION OR HAVE PERFORMED INADEQUATELY BECAUSE ACHIEVEMENT OF SOME FACTORS HAS CRITICALLY COMPROMISED OTHE ...

  2. AIRBORNE MULTISPECTRAL SCANNER TO MEASURE OCEAN BIOMASS

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

    THIS PROJECT APPLIES SEVERAL INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS FOR MODIFYING AN EXISTING AIRBORNE MULTISPECTRAL SCANNER TO MAKEIT CAPABLE OF MEASURING OCEAN BIOMASS IN SUPPORT OF THE NASAGLOBAL BIOLOGY EFFORT. PROVEN FEASIBILITY OF THIS APPROACH WOULD PERMIT ACCOMPLISHMENT OF NASA OBJECTIVES WITHOUT THE NEED FOR AN EXPENSIVE AND LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. THE RESEARCH INCLUDES THE ANALYSIS OF EACH OF THE SP ...

  3. REFINEMENTS FOR EDDY CURRENT TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: N/A

    EDDY CURRENT FIELD INSPECTIONS ARE PRESENTLY PERFORMED BY TECHNICIANS WHO MUST EXAMINE AND EVALUATE THE OUTPUT OF EDDYCURRENT EQUIPMENT AND MANUALLY RECORD THE RESULTS OF SUCH INSPECTIONS. AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPLEMENTING A DIGITAL SYSTEM WHICH AUTOMATES THIS PROCESSS IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY. THE SYSTEM IS BASED UPON A GENERAL PURPOSE, LOW-COST PERSONAL COMPUTER. IT AUT ...

  4. SINGLET OXYGEN GENERATOR FOR A SOLAR POWERED, CHEMICALLY PUMPED IODINE LASER

    SBC: Kms Fusion Inc            Topic: N/A

    ATOMIC IODINE IS USED SUCCESSFULLY AS THE ACTIVE ELEMENT IN HIGH POWER LASERS OPERATING AT 1.3 MICRON WAVELENGTH. THE IODINE LASER TRANSITION IS EFFICIENTLY PUMPED BY MOLECULAR OXYGEN IN ITS SINGLET DELTA EXCITED STATE. THE OBJECTIVE OFTHIS RESEARCH IS TO INVESTIGATE AND EVALUATE A METHOD FOR GENERATING SINGLET OXYGEN (02) GAS DIRECTLY FROM SOLID-PHASEMATERIAL, AND TO RELATE THE INFORMATION OBTAIN ...

  5. LOW COST TOOLING MATERIAL & PROCESS FOR GRAPHITE & KEVLAR

    SBC: Quantum Composites Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEW TOOLING CONCEPT, SUITED TO THE MANUFACTURE OF COMPONENTS FABRICATED FROM MODERN POLYMERS AND COMPOSITES, IS INVESTIGATED. NEW POLYMER & COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGIES HAVE OUTSTRIPPED THE TOOLING TECHNILOGY REQUIRED TO PRODUCE PARTS. AEROSPACE TOOL BUILDING PRACTICES AND MATERIALS THAT WERE ADEQAUTE FOR METAL FROMING AND FIBERGLASS COMPOSITE MANUFACTURE WILL NOT SUFFICE FOR THE NEW SPACE-AGE COMPOSI ...

  6. ENHANCED BI-DIRECTIONAL COMMUNICATION WITH LOW-COST PAYLOADS

    SBC: SPACE PROJECTS, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    EXPERIENCE IN DEVELOPING PAYLOAD CONTROLLERS FOR USE BY SPACE SHUTTLE ORBITER CREWS HAS UNVEILED THE CONTINUING AND GROWING PROBLEMS OF NON-STANDARDIZED PROTOCOL AND THE DISTRESS OF CREWS REQUIRED TO LEARN NEW KEYBOARDS AND OPERATING SYSTEMS WITH "EVERY NEW EXPERIMENT". THE KEY TO SOLVING THIS PROBLEM IS TO DEVELOP A HIGH LEVEL LANGUAGE FAMILIAR TO THE ORBITER CREWS INCLUDING SUCH FEATURES AS: (1) ...

  7. APPLICATION OF PSEUDO-NOISE CORRELATION & BANDWIDTH SYNTHESIS TO ORBIT DETERMINATION

    SBC: Stanford Telecommunications            Topic: N/A

    A TECHNIQUE WHICH COMBINES THE USE OF PSEUDO-NOISE (PN) CODECORRELATION AND MULTILATERATION WITH ANOTHER TECHNIQUE, TERMED "BANDWIDTH SYNTHESIS" (BWS), TO SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCETHE ACCURACY OF SATELLITE ORBIT DETERMINATION IS THE FOCUS OF THIS PROJECT. FROM A THEORETICAL VIEWPOINT, BWS ALLOWS ONE TO CONSTRUCT A VERY WIDEBAND PN CORRELATION FUNCTION (E.G., REFLECTING MORE THAN 100 MHZ) BY EMPLOYING ...

    SBIR Phase II 1984 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. THE LARGE FORMAT CAMERA: NOVEL ANALYSES OF SENSOR APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Autometric Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA PLANS TO PLACE THE LARGE FORMAT CAMERA IN THE SPACE SHUTTLE FOR EARTH SENSING MISSIONS IN 1984. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE LFC NOT ONLY HAS DIRECT UTILITY IN CARTOGRAPHY, BUT CAN BE USED IN A TRUE MULTISPECTRAL SENSE TO ANSWER UNIQUE CIVIL REQUIREMENTS. FURTHER, BECAUSE OF ITS GEOMETRIC FIDELITY, LFC IMAGERY COULD BE USED AS A MAP BASE FOR OTHER MULTISENSOR, NONIMAGING PRODUCTS. THIS PROJECT WIL ...

    SBIR Phase II 1986 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. LOW-POWER SPECTRUM ANALYSIS AND REAL-TIME DATA COMPRESSION SYSTEM

    SBC: Defense Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I PROJECT IS TO CONSTRUCT AND DELIVER A "BRASSBOARD" FOURIER TRANSFORM SPECTRUM ANALYSIS PROCESSOR FOR MAGNETIC FIELD INSTRUMENTS HAVING A BANDWIDTH OF 0-10 HZ. IT WILL BE DESIGNED TO OPERATE AT A POWER CONSUMPTION OF LESS THAN 1 W AND INCORPORATES EXTENSIVE POST-PROCESSING DATA COMPRESSION CAPABILITIES. THIS CMOS BASED PROCESSOR CONSISTS OF A LOWPASS FILTER FOLLOWED BY ...

  10. PUMPED, TWO-PHASE, NON-AZEOTROPIC SPACECRAFT COOLING SYSTEMS

    SBC: Frederick A. Costello, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WILL DESIGN AND DEMONSTRATE BY A COMPUTER SIMULATION A TYPICAL SPACECRAFT TEMPERATURE-CONTROL SYSTEM SYSTEM THAT USES A NON-AZEOTROPIC, TWO-PHASE FLUID AS THE WORKING MEDIUM. THE INNOVATION LIES IN THE USE OF THE NON-AZEOTROPIC FLUID. EXISTING RESEARCH AND EXISTING DESIGNS ARE BASED ON HAVING CONVENTIONAL, SINGLE-COMPONENT OR AZEOTROPIC FLUIDS AS THE WORKING MEDIUM. NON-AZEOTROPIC FLUI ...
