  1. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed.  The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium  to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through cross ...

  2. Fail-Safe, Controllable Liquid Spring/Damper System for Improved Rover Space Vehicle Mobility

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: H601

    NASA is planning to return to the moon in 2020 to explore thousands of miles of the moon?s surface with individual missions, lasting six months or longer. Surface mobility is critical to outpost buildup and exploration activities, where the change in the vehicle weight between unloaded and loaded cargo conditions and travel over rough terrain can adversely affect the ride handling conditions and ...

  3. Airfoil Controlled Glide and Directional Control

    SBC: Wizbe Industries, Inc.            Topic: S304

    There is a growing desire for recovery systems that provide extended cross range capability and are steerable to enable precision landing of payloads. Using a recovery system that enables landings to specific coordinates can dramatically reduce suborbital flight recovery costs, future space return flight costs in the Earth's atmosphere. It also has potential in the Mars' atmosphere where a lightwe ...

  4. Fabrication of T-SOFC via Freeze Cast Methods for Space and Portable Applications

    SBC: Yanhai Power LLC            Topic: H801

    As NASA space missions become longer in duration the need for high efficiency power generator sets that can operate on NASA logistical fuel become critical. Historically NASA has used fuel cells as part of the energy solution. Space bound energy and power systems require rapid start and stop cycle times as well as high power densities. The high operational efficiency, coupled with the use of logi ...

  5. A Green, Safe, Multi-Pulse Solid Motor (MPM) for CubeSats

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Today's CubeSats lack storable, green, safe propulsion options for complex science missions that may involve large Delta-V changes, proximity operations, and attitude control systems (ACS) for pointing, spin-up, and spin-down. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing propulsion for CubeSats and will leverage existing research efforts into a new system for NASA. A key technology identifi ...

  6. Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) Fueled Pulsed Plasma Thruster

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing the development of a new liquid Pulsed Plasma Thruster (PPT) using its revolutionary HAN-based Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) to enable spacecraft missions whose fulfillment requires the high specific impulse of conventional Telfon-fueled PPTs, but would like the flexibility in mission design that liquid fueled systems allow. DSSP's GEM propellant i ...

  7. Developing and Improving Commercial Marine Algal Culture in the United States

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Maine Fresh Sea Farms (MFSF) will build a multi-species, multi-season prototype farm with the goal of having crops of fresh sea vegetables available throughout the year. What isn’t utilized fresh will be dried for longer-term storage and used in other products. Our team will gather data on water quality, nutrients, light levels, and hydrodynamics to assemble profiles of key parameters that deter ...

  9. A Green, Safe, Dual-Pulse Solid Motor for CubeSat Orbit Changing

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Small satellites such as CubeSats are in need of responsive propulsion, but are limited due to their size. Though single pulse, AP/HTPB fueled solid rocket motors exist in the market, greater mission flexibility is to be had from a motor with the capability of a second ignition in the same volume constraints. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) proposes research into the technology to not only t ...

  10. Development of Sustainable, Multi-Seasonal, Multi-Species, Marine Algal Aquaculture in Coastal Maine

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 81

    This Phase I proposal determines the feasibility of growing multiple species of macroalgae in commercial marine aquafarm environments. Marine aquaculture is a logical outgrowth of successful wild harvest seaweed businesses over the last several years. Developing a marine aquaculture prototype will foster the science of sea farming. Extending growing seasons for multi-species would provide year ...
