  1. Cost Effective Processing Equipment for Large Composite Parts

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Reduced mass materials are critical to the success of aerospace systems. Thus, large air and space structures can benefit from lightweight composite materials. However, their adoption is impaired by the lack of a robust, cost-effective fabrication process, principally because the autoclaves used to consolidate composite laminates are so expensive for large parts. This program develops for US aeros ...

  2. Large-Area, Low-Cost, High-Resolution X-ray Detector and Electron Amplifier

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research proposal will develop porous dielectrics as a low-cost, large-area detector for high spatial resolution x-ray detection. An alternative to microchannel plates, porous dielectric electron amplifiers are formed by a thin layer, generally less than 1 mm, of a low density dielectric. The microscopic pores formed in such material, provide a natural, but m ...

  5. Heatpipe Power System (HPS) In-Space Fueling, A Simplified Approach

    SBC: Advanced Methods & Materials (AMM)            Topic: N/A

    A major objection to the use of nuclear energy for space applications is the perceived risk involved in the launching of a fully fueled nuclear reactor. Even when it is pointed out that the fuel is in fact not radioactive, concerns persist. It is acknowledged that to design a reactor able to withstand all conceivable launch accidents would result in an impractical heavy design. To avoid the above ...

  7. Autonomous Docking with the Laser Dynamic Range Imager Optical Sensor

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I proposal develops a novel technology to automate the process of docking the Shuttle to the International Space Station (ISS). This technology is based on the Laser Dynamic Range Imager (LDRI) and a cross-plane point tracking algorithm. The LDRI provides the range measurement from the laser unit to the field of view for far or near inspection distances. The LDRI is a dynamic adaptation ...

  9. MagOrion-A Nuclear Propelled MagSail for Human Exploration of the Outer Planets

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Manned exploration beyond Mars requires very high specific energy. The only potential solution under discussion is fusion propulsion. However, fusion has been ten years away for forty years. We have an available solution that combines new technology with an old concept ¿ ¿Project Orion¿. The proposed MagOrion Propulsion System combines a magnetic sail (MagSail) with conventional small yield (0. ...

  10. A Linear-Drive Pulse Tube Cooler for Applications Below 6K

    SBC: ATLAS SCIENTIFIC            Topic: N/A

    Various planned NASA missions depend on the availability of reliable and efficient coolers that achieve temperatures below 6K. These coolers are needed as the upper stage for lower temperature coolers such as dilution refrigerators or adiabatic demagnetization refrigerators. Astronomical missions utilize such low temperatures to enhance infrared detector sensitivity and to cool optics. Low tempera ...
