  2. Modified Collins Cryocooler for Cryo-Propellant Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: T402

    Future lunar and planetary explorations will require the storage of cryogenic propellants, particularly liquid oxygen (LOX) and liquid hydrogen (LH2), in low earth orbit (LEO) for periods of time ranging from days to months, and possibly longer. LEO is a relatively warm thermal environment and without careful thermal management, significant quantities of stored liquid cryogens can be lost due to ...

  3. Waveguide Phase Modulator for Integrated Planar Lightwave Circuits in KTP

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    This SBIR Phase II effort proposes the development and integration of a Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) into an all fiber-based seed laser system used in high spectral resolution aerosol and cloud lidar applications. The PLC integrates a frequency doubling element, a waveguide splitter, and phase modulator into a monolithic, waveguide-based device. This technology is important for lidar systems r ...

  4. Highly Efficient, Compact, Wavelength Converters for Pulsed and CW Laser Sources Used in Lidar-Based Remote Sensing and Ranging Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    AdvR, Inc. proposes the development of a highly efficient, fiber pigtailed, waveguide-based UV frequency converter module. This UV module will be an important element in future NASA sponsored Doppler lidar and High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) aerosol missions. The key innovation is the use of dual-element periodically poled waveguides embedded in a nonlinear optical substrate. This innovat ...

  5. An Adaptive Chemistry Approach to Modeling Emissions Performance of Gas Turbine Combustors

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A202

    In this proposed SBIR project, we seek to implement the Adaptive Chemistry methodology in existing CFD codes used to investigate the emissions performance of gas turbine engine combustors. We will demonstrate the feasibility of integrating Adaptive Chemistry algorithms to current CFD codes. We will also further develop the Adaptive Chemistry method to take advantage of species reduction enabling e ...

  6. Multispectral Particle Absorption Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: S108

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project concerns the development of a multi-wavelength monitor that will provide rapid, real-time measurement of the average aerosol absorption coefficient in the parcel of sample air. This monitor will employ Aerodyne's proprietary Cavity Attenuated Phase Shift spectroscopy technology in order to produce a far simpler, smaller, lower cost alterna ...

  7. Spacecraft Cabin Particulate Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: X303

    We propose to design, build and test an optical extinction monitor for the detection of spacecraft cabin particulates. This monitor will be sensitive to particle sizes ranging from a few nanometer to tens of micrometers in diameter. Designed to utilize commercial off-the-shelf components, the monitor, once calibrated, will require no recalibration and only periodic baseline determinations, a pro ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. CMOS-Based Neutron Spectroscopic Dosimeter (CNSD)

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: X1403

    Monitoring space radiation and the dose received by astronauts is important, especially for future long-duration missions. Neutrons contribute a significant component to the total radiation dose during solar events. We propose to develop a rugged, compact, lightweight, non-hazardous CMOS-based detector technology for an existing neutron spectroscopic dosimeter system. The existing system utilizes ...
