  1. ELECTROSTATIC FRACTIONATION OF NATURAL AND PROCESSED LUNAR SOLIDS IN SPACE

    SBC: Advanced Energy Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH ON SEPARATION AND CONCENTRATION OF LUNAR DERIVED MATERIALS IS PROPOSED BASED ON ADVANCED ENERGY DYNAMICS' STATE OF THE ART EXPERIENCE IN DRY ELECTROSTATIC SEPARATION.THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF SEPARATING THESE MATERIALS INTO A VARIETY OF CHEMICALLY DISTINCT FRACTIONS USING A NOVEL COUNTERCURRENT ELECTROSTATIC PROCESS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THE ELECTROSTATIC SEPARATOR TO BE USED IS IDEALL ...

  2. RUBY CRYSTAL CHLOROPHYLL FLUOROMETER FOR MEASUREMENTS OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS RATES

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DESIGN, CONSTRUCT AND TEST A LABORATORY VERSION OF A PASSIVE CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESCENCE SENSOR SUITABLE FOR MONITORING LARGE AREAS OF VEGETATION (> 1 M2). THE LINE DISCRIMINATOR METHOD WE PROPOSE EXPLOITS A COINCIDENCE BETWEEN AN ABSORPTION LINE OFATMOSPHERIC OXYGEN AND THE R1 LINE OF A COOLED RUBY CRYSTAL,BOTH OF WHICH LIE NEAR THE PEAK OF THE CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESC ...

  3. NOVEL PROPORTIONAL PROXIMITY SENSOR FOR AUTONOMOUS, SPACE BASED ROBOTS

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

    ROBOTICS IS BECOMING AN INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT FIELD IN RESEARCH AND MANUFACTURING. MOST ROBOTS, HOWEVER, EITHER PERFORM REPETITIVE PREPROGRAMMED OPERATIONS OR ARE GUIDED BY A HUMAN OPERATOR. THIS IS NOT PRACTICAL IN MANY APPLICATIONS WHERE AUTONOMOUS OPERATION IS REQUIRED, AND THE MOST IMPORTANT IMPROVEMENTS IN FUTURE GENERATIONS OF ROBOTS, ESPECIALLY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS, WILL COME IN THE AREA ...

  4. HIGH RESOLUTION, AVALANCHE DIODE X-RAY SPECTROMETER FOR PLANETARY EXPLORATION

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

    ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING GOALS OF THE NASA SPACE PROGRAM IS TO LAND A VEHICLE ON MARS AND CONDUCT PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL MEASUREMENTS OF THE MARTIAN SURFACE. OF THE VARIOUS ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES BEING CONSIDERED FOR THE LANDER MISSION, X-RAY FLUORESCENCE ANALYSIS OFFERS THE POSSIBILITY OF PROVIDING THE IN-SITU INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF THE PROSPECTIVE SAMPLES WHICH WILL BE SELEC ...

  5. CVD Diamond Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

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

    Proliferation of nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. One way to determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect neutrons emitted by special nuclear material(SNM) such as highly enriched uranium and weapons grade plutonium. The purpose of this project is to develop improved solid state neutron detectors from CVD diamond for homeland security applications. Phase I work wil ...

  6. Improved Solid-State Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    The use and applications of radiological sources, for power, medical, and defense applications, continuously increases with time. Illicit nuclear materials represent a threat for the safety of the American citizens and the detection and interdiction of a nuclear weapon is a national problem that has not been yet solved. This represents an enormous challenge to current detection methods and monitor ...

  9. Miniature MEMS-based Chemical & Explosives Detector

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Boston MicroSystems (BMS) proposes to develop a cell-phone sized instrument for detecting hazardous chemical and explosive threats. The instrument is based on BMS' PicoSensor® chemical and explosives detection platform, which has been developed in part under DHS support and is capable of sensing explosives and toxic chemicals at ppb and even ppt (trillion) levels. The Picoensor® consists of a ME ...
