  1. A Compact, Dual Excitation Raman Probe and Instrument for the Identification of Lunar Samples

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: S111

    NASA's Vision for Space Exploration advocates a return to the moon and involves a pl an of using the moon as a base of for missions to other planets. Early return missions to the moon will involve lunar exploration with robotic spacecrafts with instrumental payloads for scientific measurements of lunar surface features such as rocks, soil, and minerals. These instrument payloads will be helpf ...

  2. A Quantum Cascade Laser-Based CO Sensor for Fire Warning

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X204

    Maxion Technologies, Inc. (Maxion) proposes to develop and field test a Carbon Monoxide (CO)-sensor prototype for post fire cleanup and CO detection. The sensor will have the dynamic range required to detect and monitor CO from approximately 1 to 500 ppmv with a resolution to 1 ppmv. Maxion will grow, fabricate and test a Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) at a unique single-mode wavelength ideal for CO ...

  7. All-Digital, CMOS-Based Photodiode Camera

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CCDs (Charge-Coupled Devices), and more recently, CMOS (complementary-symmetry metal-oxide-semiconductor) APS (Active Pixel Sensor) cameras have revolutionized imaging instrumentation and the many fields that utilize these instruments. Both these technologies rely on integrating, the analog photo-current generated in each pixel, which limits their sensitivity and bandwidth. Counting individual opt ...

  8. Antenna Enhancements for SOF Applications

    SBC: Megawave Corporation            Topic: SOCOM03005

    U.S. Special Operating Forces (SOF) require tactical VHF/UHF antennas with improved performance for Special Reconnaissance (SR) missions. The development of an Enhanced Antenna Suite (EAS) tailored to SOF needs that can be configured depending on the nature of each mission is essential for meeting mission needs. Such a suite is aimed to provide enhanced mission effectiveness through improved LPI/ ...

  9. Compact Low-Power Driver for Deformable Mirror Systems

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: S202

    This proposal describes a new concept to drive MEMS DMs using low-power, high-voltage multiplexing. Compared to other reported approaches, the proposed architecture will reduce power consumption by a factor of one hundred, to a level of a few hundred milliwatts. This estimate is supported by direct measurements obtained from prototype modules that were demonstrated in Phase I research.In the Phase ...
