  1. Long Wave Mid-Infrared Source for Trace Gas Sensing

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: S201

    Tunable laser spectrometers are used by NASA for investigations of planetary atmospheric constituent gases. The availability of widely tunable long-wavelength (3 to 12?Ym) lasers operating at room temperature would allow such spectrometers to a wider range of gas species detection sensitivity increased by orders-of-magnitude relative to near-infrared lasers currently used in these applications. Ac ...

  2. Effervescent Fine Water Mist Fire Extinguisher for Microgravity Environments

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1203

    Fire suppression systems provide an essential safety function onboard spacecraft. The transition away from halon-based systems has presented an opportunity for efficient and cost-effective alternative approaches. ADA Technologies proposes to develop a fine-water-mist fire suppression system suitable for use in microgravity. The ADA design features a single pressure tank with a patented effervescen ...

  3. Modeling, Testing and Deploying a Multifunctional Radiation Shielding / Hydrogen Storage Unit

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: B309

    This project addresses two vital problems for long-term space travel activities: radiation shielding and hydrogen storage for power and propulsion. While both problems have been studied for many years, there is currently no satisfactory technology for providing adequate non-parasitic shielding. Even in low-Earth orbit, astronauts must be closely monitored for radiation exposure, and some mission ...

  6. A Cryogenic Flow Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Technologies Group, Inc.            Topic: X605

    Based on the success of the phase I effort, Advanced Technologies Group, Inc. proposes the development of a Cryogenic Flow Sensor (CFS) for determining mass flow of cryogens in spacecraft propellant management. Current point sensor technology is incapable of determining high pressure, high flow rate cryogenic fluid quality and mass flow rate, and has proven to be inaccurate in attempting to rapid ...

  8. Flexible Transpiration Cooled Thermal Protection System for Inflatable Atmospheric Capture and Entry Systems

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: X704

    Andrews Space, Inc. proposes an innovative transpiration cooled aerobrake TPS design that is thermally protective, structurally flexible, and lightweight. This innovative design will also meet launch volume constraints and satisfy terminal aerobraking requirements. The approach will focus on transpiration cooling of a flexible material and will consider ablative and insulative technologies as key ...

  9. 15-25K Static-Helium Regenerator/Double Pulse Tube Cooler for Receiving Arrays

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA needs a cryogenic refrigerator for the 15-25K range for receiving arrays of ground-based antennas that will serve the telecommunications needs of future space exploration. We propose to develop a 15-25K Static-Helium Regenerator/Double Pulse Tube Cooler for receiving arrays. Our SHR/DPTC combines two of our technologies that have potential to enable pulse-tube coolers to operate efficiently ...

  10. Adaptive Computed Tomography Imaging Spectrometer

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: S201

    The present proposal describes the development of an adaptive Computed Tomography Imaging Spectrometer (CTIS), or "Snapshot" spectrometer which can "instantaneously" capture a full 3D data cube. The technology is applicable to hyperspectral imaging for remote sensing of extra-terrestrial planetary bodies and deep space objects. The snapshot capability of the technology makes it possible to captur ...
