  1. Improvements in Scintillation Technology for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07004

    High-resolution scintillation crystals and crystal arrays are important components of current and future handheld and arrayed detectors (used for DOD/DTRA applications), and scintillation spectrometers (routinely used in high energy physics research, medical imaging, diffraction, homeland security, nuclear waste clean-up, nuclear treaty verification and safeguards, and geological exploration). Un ...

  2. InN-Based Quantum Dot Solar Cells

    SBC: Kopin Corporation            Topic: T301

    The goal of this STTR program is to employ nanostructured materials in an advanced device design to enhance the tolerance of solar cells to extreme environments while maintaining high solar electric power conversion efficiency. By using InN-based quantum dots embedded within a higher band gap GaN barrier material, a larger fraction of the solar spectrum can be harnessed while minimizing the effec ...

  3. A Gimbal-Stabilized Compact Hyperspectral Imaging System

    SBC: Flight Landata, Inc.            Topic: S601

    The Gimbal-stabilized Compact Hyperspectral Imaging System (GCHIS) fully integrates multi-sensor spectral imaging, stereovision, GPS and inertial measurement, gimbal-stabilization, and gimbal-pointing-and-tracking capabilities into a compact light weight package. Advanced adaptive Kalman filter and attitude calibration algorithms are embedded for precision inertial measurement and real-time platfo ...

  4. Multi-Use Solar Thermal System for Oxygen Production from Lunar Regolith [7227-570]

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: X402

    We propose to develop an innovative solar thermal system for oxygen production from lunar regolith. In this system solar radiation is collected by the concentrator array which transfers the concentrated solar radiation to the optical waveguide (OW) transmission line made of low loss optical fibers. The OW transmission line directs the solar radiation to the thermal receiver for processing of luna ...

  5. MMIC Cavity Oscillator at 50 and 94 GHz (2007040)

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: S604

    An innovative, ultra-low phase-noise, fully integrated single-chip cavity oscillator is proposed. The cavity is built on a standard MMIC process and has a quality factor of 120 at 50 GHz, and an insertion loss of 7 dB. This proposed technique is very well suited for MMW applications with emphasis on the frequency range 50-100 GHz. The achievable phase noise at 50 GHz is -112 dBc/Hz at 100 KHz offs ...

  6. Tissue-Equivalent Radiation Dosimeter-On-A-Chip

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: X1301

    Available digital dosimeters are bulky and unable to provide real-time monitoring of dose for space radiation. The complexity of space-flight design requires reliable, fault-tolerant equipment capable of providing real-time dose readings during a mission, which is not feasible with the existing thermo-luminescent dosimeter (TLD) technology, especially during extravehicular activities (EVA). Real ...

  7. Control Valve for Miniature Xenon Ion Thruster

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: S301

    NASA is continuing its development of electric propulsion engines for various applications. Efforts have been directed toward both large and small thrusters, depending on the end use. A current program is focused on the development of a miniature thruster. Development of a Miniature Xenon Ion (MiXI) thruster will enable precision spacecraft positioning and formation maneuvers for formation-flyi ...

  8. Advanced Composite Bipolar Plate for Unitized Regenerative Fuel Cell/Electrolyzer Systems

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: X803

    Development of an advanced composite bipolar plate is proposed for a unitized regenerative fuel cell and electrolyzer system that operates on pure feed streams (H2/O2 and water, respectively). The composite bipolar plate can greatly simplify "closed-loop" unitized fuel cell/electrolyzer power systems, as it eliminates the need for saturators, a second stack and water/gas phase separation. It pro ...

  9. Nano-Enabled Low-Cost High-Performance UV Anti-Reflection Coatings

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: S304

    Agiltron together with Prof. Michael Rubner's group at MIT is developing a new family of nanoporous, low refractive index coatings for next generation NASA UV anti-reflection (AR) application on large plastic optics. The initial application is intended for 2.5 m diameter PMMA Fresnel lenses which NASA anaticipates as part of the EUSO mission cosmic ray telescope. The new thin film technology comb ...

  10. Online Real-Time Tribology Failure Detection System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: T202

    Under NASA Phase I funding, we have developed a system for the ball bearing fault detection and identification. Our system can effectively identify multiple fault modes related to the evolution of friction within the contact in the coated ball bearings. To detect bearing faulty modes, we have developed a new bispectrum and entropy analysis method to capture the faulty transient signals embedded in ...
