  5. NARROW BANDGAP SEMICONDUCTING SILICIDES: INTRINSIC INFRARED DETECTORS ON A SILICON CHIP

    SBC: Colorado Research Development            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS A FUNDAMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF THE OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF THREE NARROW BANDGAP, SEMICONDUTING TRANSITION METAL SILICIDES. THESE MATERIALS MAY BE SUITABLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CLASS OF INTRINSIC INFRARED DETECTORS INTEGRATED DIRECTLY ONTO A SILICON CHIP. DISTINCT ADVANTAGES INCLUDES A COMPATABILITY WITH EXISTING SILICON MICROELECTRONICS PROCESSING ENABLING THE MONOLIT ...

  6. KNOWLEDGE BASE DICTIONARY FOR INTEGRATION OF ENGINEERING AND OPERATIONS SYSTEMS

    SBC: Computer Technology Associates            Topic: N/A

    EACH TIME NASA DEVELOPS A SPACECRAFT, IT DEVELOPS, AT THE SAME TIME, A LARGE BODY OF INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE IN THE FORM OF ENGINEERING DATA, SPACECRAFT TEST PROCEDURES, AND OPERATIONAL CONSTRAINTS. UNFORTUNATELY, MUCH OF THIS KNOWLEDGE IS NEVER TRANSITIONED TO OPERATIONS, WHICH FREQUENTLY REINVENTS IT (OR WORSE, NEVER DISCOVERS IT). CTA PROPOSES A SYSTEMS TECHNIQUE, A KNOWLEDGE BASE DICTIONARY, ...

  8. METAL HYDRIDES FOR INTEGRATION OF SPACECRAFT HYDROGEN RESOURCES

    SBC: Hydrogen Consultants Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING METAL HYDRIDE SUBSYSTEMS TO INTEGRATE COMMON SPACECRAFT RESOURCES. THIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY DEVELOPING A REALISTIC SET OF DESIGN DATA CHARACTERIZING THE POTENTIAL USE OF METAL HYDRIDE SYSTEMS IN SPACE. THIS DATA WILL BE GENERATED BY AN APPROACH WHICH WILL IDENTIFY AND CATALOGUE THE THERMAL SYSTEMS AND EQUIPM ...

  9. CAPURE AND RELIQUEFACTIOIN OF HYDROGEN BOILOFF AT SHUTTLE LAUNCH SITE

    SBC: Hydrogen Consultants Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE LIQUID HYDROGEN FUEL USED FOR THE SPACE SHUTTLE AT KENNEDY SPACE CENTER IS EXPEECTED TO GROW FROM A CURRENT ANNUAL RATE OF APPROXIMATELY 5 MILION GALLONS TO 10 MILLION GALLONS IN THE LATE 1980'S. ABOUT ONE THIRD OF THIS VOLUME LIQUID HYDROGEN IS LOST FORM STEADY STAT , AND PERIODIC SOURCES SUCH AS PRE-COOLING, LOADING AND UNLOADING OPERATIONS. IT IS THE INTENT OF THIS PROPOSAL TO ILLUSTRATE HO ...

  10. METAL HYDRIDE THERMAL MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES FOR FUTURE SPACECRAFT AND PLANETARY BASES

    SBC: Hydrogen Consultants Inc            Topic: N/A

    METAL HYDRIDES ARE UNIQUELY CONTROLLABLE PHASE-CHANGE MATERIALS WITH THE POTENTIAL TO CONTROL AND USE HEAT IN FUTURE SPACE THERMAL ENERGY CONTROL SYSTEMS. HYDRIDES MANIPULATE HEAT WHILE CHEMICALLY ABSORBING AND DESORBING HYDROGEN OVER A BROAD RANGE OF TEMPERATURES. THE PHASE-CHANGES ARE CONTROLLABLE BY VALVING THE THE FLOW OF HYDROGEN, FROM ONE HYDRIDE TO ANOTHER, REGARDLESS OF TEMPERATURE. THE UN ...
