  1. A Balloon-Borne Open-Path Cavity Ringdown Spectrometer for Measuring Atmospheric Extinction and Validating Remote Sensing Products

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: S1

    Aerosol extinction measurements are crucial to understanding the effects of atmospheric particles on ozone depletion (stratosphere), radiation (stratosphere and troposphere), visibility (troposphere) and public health (boundary layer).nbsp; Despite the acute need, no existing instrument can measure direct, in situ aerosol extinction profiles from the ground to the mid-stratosphere.nbsp; Satellite- ...

  2. Absolute Wavelength Control of Lasers for Active Sensing in Space

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: S109

    We propose to develop compact absolute wavelength references to weak molecular transitions, which is a challenge characteristic to space-based active sensing. The ASCENDS mission (Active Sensing of CO2 over Nights, Days, and Seasons) will be the first satellite-based mission employing precision laser spectroscopy for active sensing of molecules in space. Although ASCENDS will be first, it is exp ...

  3. Accelerated Numerical Processing API Based on GPU Technology

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: S802

    The recent performance increases in graphics processing units (GPUs) have made graphics cards an attractive platform for implementing computationally intense applications. With their numerous parallel computational pipelines and SIMD architecture, modern GPUs can outperform high-end microprocessors by one to three orders of magnitude, depending on the problem. Most work to date at EM Photonics a ...

  5. Accelerated Scientific InSAR Processing

    SBC: NEVA RIDGE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S603

    Neva Ridge Technologies proposes to develop a suite of software tools for the analysis of SAR and InSAR data, focused on having a robust and adopted capability well in place for scientists by the era of the NASA DESDynI spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) mission. The software will take advantage of the latest technologies associated with graphics processor units (GPUs) to drastically accel ...

  6. A Cloud Particle Imager for Balloons and Remotely Piloted Aircraft

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Earth Observing System (EOS), a constellation of satellites that will observe clouds from space, needs reliable in situ measurements of cloud drops and ice particles for validation of remote retrieval algorithms. Current aircraft cloud particle measurements do not give good statistical data sets when compared to satellite overpasses. A new instrument, the cloud particle imager (CPI), previousl ...

  9. A Compact Medical Oxygen Generator for Spacecraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: X1001

    An on-board oxygen concentrator is required during long duration manned space missions to supply medical oxygen. Commercial medical oxygen generators are pressure swing adsorption (PSA) based systems that use nitrogen selective zeolites and are mostly large, massive, and power intensive. TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) proposes to develop a small, lightweight, portable oxygen generator that uses a high c ...

  10. A Constant Force Resistive Exercise Unit

    SBC: Valeo, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In space, muscles atrophy and bones weaken due to long-term disuse in response to the lack of a gravity resistance vector against which to eccentrically and concentrically do work. To counteract the negative effects of microgravity on muscles and bones, research suggests that astronauts perform muscle-strengthening resistive exercises while in space. Since the lack of gravity renders weight-bearin ...
