  1. Panoramic Stereoscopic Video System for Remote-Controlled Robotic Space Operations

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: F502

    This Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of providing panoramic stereoscopic images for remote-controlled robotic space operations using three fixed-position cameras. Remote-controlled robot operations are an important element in orbital and planetary space missions. Advanced display systems can greatly enhance the effectiveness of these operations. In the system proposed here, hum ...

  2. Multi Point Velocity, Density and Temperature Measurements using LITA

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: A206

    Laser induced thermal acoustics (LITA) is a nonintrusive, transient-grating optical technique that provides simultaneous high-accuracy measurements of velocity, sound-speed, and thermal diffusivity among other parameters. In a fluid of known composition, sound speed and thermal diffusivity are readily correlated to temperature and density. Thus LITA provides a measurement of thermodynamic state. W ...

  3. Near Real-Time, Microchip Assay of Aerosol Chemical Composition

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: E103

    A compact, autonomous and rugged instrument to measure the concentration of inorganic ions, and possibly organic acids, in atmospheric aerosols is proposed. This instrument will combine an innovative method for particle concentration and collection with emerging ?laboratory on a chip? analytical methods. The analytical microchip, measuring a few centimeters across, will contain all of the critic ...

  6. An Advanced Light Weight Recuperator for Space Power Systems

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: S404

    Nuclear Electric Propulsion (NEP) technology holds great promise for power and propulsion demands of NASA current and future deep space explorations. Closed Brayton Cycle (CBC) space power system is one of the most efficient energy conversion technologies for nuclear electric propulsion. There are three heat exchanges in CBC and the recuperator is very important to enhancing CBC efficiency. An ad ...

  7. Reconfigurable GPS/MEMS IMU/WAAS/RA Navigation System for UAVs

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: S103

    Accurate absolute position, velocity, attitude and precise relative navigation are critical capabilities for unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) to improve their autonomy and reduce the mission life-cycle cost. This Phase I project investigates a low cost, miniature reconfigurable autonomous navigation system for all flight missions of the UAV. The proposed approach employs a flexible Federated Kalman fi ...

  8. High Speed Photodetector for Terahertz Applications

    SBC: Applied Quantum Systems, Inc.            Topic: A502

    The ever increasing volume of the information to be transmitted and processed demands fast communication systems that can fulfill a throughput of 1 Tb/s or even 10 Tb/s. This requires more than 100 times improvement of performance over today?s fiber optic communication systems, and calls for the development of terahertz or femtosecond technologies. Applied Quantum Systems proposes an innovative ph ...

  9. Aircraft Based Imaging Probe for the Study of Icing Environments

    SBC: ARTIUM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A102

    Icing environments are of great concern in commercial and military aviation. An aircraft-based, imaging probe is being proposed for the reliable and accurate measurement of liquid water content (LWC) and droplet size distributions in environments variously referred to as freezing rain, freezing drizzle, supercooled drizzle drops, and supercooled large drops (SLD). The innovative aspect of the prop ...

  10. Rectified Continuous Flow Loop for Thermal Control of Large Deployable Structures and Distributed Loads

    SBC: ATLAS SCIENTIFIC            Topic: E107

    Future instruments and platforms for NASA's Earth Science Enterprises will require increasingly sophisticated thermal control technology, and cryogenic applications will become increasingly more common. For example, Fourier Transform Spectrometers capable of high-accuracy cloud-profile measurements will require cryogenically cooled optics and detectors. While a number of cryogenic refrigeration sy ...
