  1. Photonic Phased Array Antenna

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The present invention provides an inexpensive and low loss fiberoptic manifold for lightweight, high-efficiency, electronically steerable, phased-array antennas. Our approach is sate-of-the-art in design and closely coupled with proven volume fiber optic component manufacturing techniques, holding a promise of realizing practical optical digital delay with performance and cost that have not been a ...

  2. 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 of these technologies rely on detecting, or integrating, the analog photo-current generated in each pixel, which limits their sensitivity and bandwidth. Counti ...

  3. High Gain, Position Sensitive, Avalanche Photodiode for Optical Communication

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

    This Phase I SBIR describes the fabrication and characterization of a position sensitive detector with internal gain. During this program, Radiation Monitoring Devices (RMD) will fabricate several position sensitive avalanche photodiodes (APDs), including both quadrant and lateral-effect photodiodes. Using RMD's advanced planar processing technology, the position sensitive detectors will be optimi ...

  4. Electro-mechanical actuators and tunable reflectors based on carbon nanotubes

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTAIR Center proposes to develop a new class of nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) based on carbon nanotubes operating at low control voltages. The proposed system consists of thin film of an appropriate solid-state material sandwiched between two nanolayers of carbon nanotubes embedded into a special matrix. The device takes advantage of recently demonstrated effect of elongation or contract ...

  5. Interfacing Design Code and Simulation Code for Biological Shielding

    SBC: Alternative Energy Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project builds on experience in an SBIR phase I project which successfully determined that the particle transport code Geant4 could be applied to the simulation of biological shielding. Among the many lessons learned during phase I was that while the physics and functionality embodied in Geant4 is either already excellent, or clearly extendible as needed, the great lacuna lies in its ability ...

  6. Networks in Organizational Risk Management

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a formal modeling tool, Networks in Organizational Risk Management (NORM), that allows mission planners and organizational designers to create and experiment with organizational structures that minimize risk throughout the lifecycle of a system. The core of our approach is a model of the network of interrelationships among people, knowledge, tasks, technology, organizational ...

  7. Highly Reliable LOX Pump for Vehicle Loading Operations

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will present an innovative Phase I research and design plan for a reliable LOX pumping system for use in NASA vehicle loading. Due to seal problems with the current LOX loading pumps, the main focus of the Phase I effort will involve design and development of an innovative sealing solution that does not use a failure prone mechanical seal. The seal solution proposed is a combination ...

  8. A Long-Duration Commercial Microgravity Mouse Habitat: Waste/Odor Technologies

    SBC: Bioastronautical Systems Development Co.            Topic: N/A

    The Bioastronautical Systems Development Company (BSDC) proposes to develop habitat technologies for conducting long-term commercial research with mice in microgravity. Our research addresses solicitation section B4.02 Space Commercialization for the design/development of microgravity payloads for space station applications that lead to commercial products or services. In partnership with BioServe ...

  9. A High Repetition Rate, Low Voltage EO Q-Switch for Lightweight Pulsed Laser

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    An all-solid portable lidar system is desired as a prominent instrument for monitoring various atmospheric phenomena. Lidar return signal from targets inherently suffer from noise caused by atmospheric variations. Increasing laser energy and improving receiver photon sensitivity enable longer-range lidar capability but will not always improve the lidar system performance. The laser pulse repetitio ...

    SBIR Phase I 2003 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. High Performance and Low Cost Hybrid Microwave Structure

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Access to the space is fundamentally very expensive. One of the most effective ways to lower the cost is obviously to reduce the weight and size of the payloads while maintaining high performance. Microwave communication is the most important and practical communication method used in the space mission, which has created a need for dramatically improved microwave devices. The agility of tunable mi ...
