  1. CROSS-CORRELATION OPTICAL STRAIN SENSOR FOR WIND TUNNEL TEST INSTRUMENTATION

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    AEROSPACE STRUCTURES/MODELS ARE SUBJECTED TO HIGH TEMPERATURES AND STRONG AERODYNAMIC FORCES UNDER CAREFULLY CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS DURING INSTRUMENTED LABORATORY TESTING. WIND TUNNEL TESTING REQUIRES INSTRUMENTATION WHICH IS RUGGED, RELIABLE, ACCURATE AND PROVIDES TEST DATA QUICKLY TO THE TEST OPERATOR. MEASUREMENTS OF STATIC AND DYNAMIC STRAINS AND PROOF TESTING ON AEROSPACE STRUCTU ...

  3. FUEL CELL PROPULSION SYSTEM FOR A HIGH ALTITUDE RESEARCH PLATFORM

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE INNOVATION PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT IS A FUEL-CELL BASED ELECTRIC PROPULSION SYSTEM FOR VERY HIGH-ALTITUDE AIRCRAFT. THIS SYSTEM WOULD POTENTIALLY BE CAPABLE OF REACHING ALTITUDES OF UP TO 40 KM (131,000 FT) WITH A SCIENTIFIC PAYLOAD IN EXCESS OF 450 KG (1000 LBS). IT WOULDBE AN ATTRACTIVE PROPULSION ALTERNATIVE FOR NASA'S PROPOSED HIGH ALTITUDE RESEARCH PLATFORM (HARP) OR OTHER VERY HIGH ALTI ...

  4. FIBER FLUOROMETRY FOR ON-LINE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF NUTRIENT SOLUTIONS

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

    NUTRIENT SOLUTIONS USED IN HYDROPONIC PLANT GROWING FACILITIES (SUCH AS NASA'S CELSS) SHOULD BENEFIT FROM ON-LINE MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL OF THE IONIC CONCENTRATIONS OF THE NUTRIENTS THAT MAKE UP SUCH SOLUTIONS. BIOTRONICS HAS DEVELOPED AN ON-LINE FIBER-LINKED FLUOROMETRIC ANALYZER POTENTIALLY CAPABLE OF MEASURING THESE IONIC CONCENTRATIONS. THIS FIBER-OPTIC BASED FLUOROMETRIC ANALYZER, DESIGNATED ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  5. WAVELENGTH DIPLEXED, FIBER COUPLED, COHERENT LASER RADAR MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: DIGITAL SIGNAL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR FIBER COUPLED PROXIMITY SENSORS WITH HIGH SPEED AND ACCURACY FOR APPLICATIONS TO ROBOTIC END EFFECTORS AND TO AUTOMATED INSPECTION AND QUALITY CONTROL. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WILL DEMONSTRATE A NOVEL, ROBUST, INTEGRATED SENSOR CONCEPT WITH MULTIPLE SENSOR CAPABILITY. FIBER OPTIC SENSORS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO HAVE GEOMETRIC FLEXIBILITY. IN THE CASE OF PHASE MODULATED IN ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  6. DUAL K AND C BAND TRANSPONDER FOR SATELLITE ALTIMETRIC CALIBRATION

    SBC: Interferometrics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE TECHNIQUES TO MAKE A DUAL FREQUENCY (K-BAND AND C-BAND) TRANSPONDER THAT WILL SIMULATE THE SAME SURFACE REFLECTION OF RANGING PULSES TRANSMITTED FROM THE TOPEX/POSEIDON SPACECRAFT. THUS, THE TRANSPONDER MUST RECEIVE AND TRANSMIT ON THE SAME FREQUENCIES. THEREFORE, IT MUST RECEIVE THE SPACECRAFT TRANSMISSIONS AND DETERMINE THEIR CHARACTERISTICS, IN ORDER TO TRANSMIT REPLIC ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. A DISTRIBUTED OBJECT TYPE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR HETEROGENEOUS ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: REI Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE INNOVATION DESCRIBED HERE IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DISTRIBUTED OBJECT TYPE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM KERNEL, DOTS, THAT PROVIDES AN INTEGRATED, UNIFORM, AND EXTENSIBLE FRAMEWORK FOR STORAGE, RETRIEVAL AND UPDATE OF HETEROGENEOUSOBJECTS. THE DOTS APPROACH INCORPORATES THE FOLLOWING UNIQUE FEATURES: PROVIDES A UNIFORM FRAMEWORK TO INTEGRATE HETEROGENEOUS OBJECTS OF DIVERSE FORMS SUCH AS TEXT, STRUCTURED ...
