  1. APPLICATION OF EOFS TO MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY COMPRESSION

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INCREASES IN INFORMATION BANDWIDTH USING COMMUNICATION CHANNELS OF FIXED PHYSICAL BANDWIDTH ARE MADE POSSIBLE BY ELIMINATING REDUNDANT INFORMATION IN THE INFORMATION STREAM USING DATA COMPRESSION-DECOMPRESSION ALGORITHMS. IMAGES--ESPECIALLY MULTISPECTRAL OR COLOR IMAGES--PUT THE GREATEST STRAIN ON COMMUNICATIONS CHANNELS. A VARIETY OF EXISTING TECHNIQUES, OF VARYING MATURITY, MAY BE APPLIED TO THE ...

  2. SOLID STATE NEUTRON DOSIMETER FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

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

    ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE RADIATION EXPOSURE OF PERSONNEL ENGAGED IN SPACE FLIGHT IS THE SIGNIFICANT FLUX OF HIGH ENERGY NEUTRONS ARISING FROM BOTH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SOURCES OF IONIZING RADIATION. PRESENTLY, THERE DOES NOT EXIST A SUITABLE AND COMPACT NEUTRON SENSOR CAPABLE OF BEING INCORPORATED IN A FLIGHT INSTRUMENT TO PROVIDE HIGH QUALITY, REAL TIME MEASUREMENT OF THIS ...

  3. HIGH FIELD, HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNETS

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

    THE DISCOVERY OF SUPERCONDUCTIVITY AT HIGH TEMPERATURES (90 K) IN COPPER CONTAINING CERAMICS HAS RESULTED IN THE RAPID ACCELERATION OF SUPERCONDUCTOR RESEARCH. MUCH OF THISRESEARCH IS BEING DIRECTED AT PRODUCING AND EXAMINING NEW COMPOUNDS BOTH TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS AND TOBETTER UNDERSTAND THE PHENOMENON. REALIZING THE POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL BENEFITS OF THIS NEW DISCOVERY DEPENDS AS ...

  4. CRYOGENIC REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS

    SBC: ANALYTIC POWER LLC            Topic: N/A

    A NEW APPROACH TO CLOSED-CYCLE, CRYOGENIC COOLING WILL BE DEVELOPED USING A POLYMER-MEMBRANE-BASED, ELECTROCHEMICALLY DRIVEN CRYOSTAT THAT EMPLOYS OXYGEN AS THE TWO-PHASE WORKING FLUID IN A MODIFIED LINDE-HAMPSON, DOUBLE-EXPANSION CYCLE. THE CYCLE PERMITS THE USE OF ADVANCED MEMBRANES IN AN ELECTROCHEMICAL COMPRESSOR. IMPROVEMENTS IN SIZE AND COST BY A FACTOR LEAST TWO, WITH NO INCREASE IN COEFFIC ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  5. MACRO- & TASK-LEVEL PROGRAMMING OF ARC WELDING ROBOTS FOR AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS.

    SBC: Automatix, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    UNDER THE OVERALL PROGRAM WE WILL DEVELOP AN INNOVATIVE PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENT TO BE INCORPORATED IN THE NEXT GENERATION OF ADVANCED WELDING ROBOT CONTROLLERS. THIS ENVIRONMENT WILL INCORPORATE MACRO-LEVEL PROGRAMMING, ICONIC USER INTERFACES, GRAPHICAL SIMULATION CAPABILITIES, AND POSSIBLY ELEMENTS OF TASK-LEVEL PROGRAMMING (E.G. AUTOMATIC PATH PLANNING AND WELD SEQUENCE OPTIMIZATION). MACRO-LEVE ...

  6. SHUNTING DIELECTRIC SENSING SYSTEM FOR NUTRIENT DELIVERY

    SBC: Axiomatics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN SBIR PROJECT TO DESIGN A REMOTE MOISTURE DETECTION SYSTEM TO SUPPORT PLANT GROWTH IN SPACE. THIS SYSTEM CAN BE BUILT INTO AN AUTOMATED IRRIGATION SYSTEM TO MAINTAIN A THIN LAYER OF NUTRIENT SOLUTION ON A SURFACE OCCUPIED BY THE ROOTS AND PLANTS. THESENSOR IS ELECTRICALLY ISOLATED FROM THE ROOT SYSTEM AND IS CONFIGURABLE TO MEASURE THE THICKNESS OF A THIN LAYER ON A SURFA ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. DESIGN OF A WRIST USING NEW MECHANISM TECHNOLOGY INVENTED FOR WHOLE-ARM MANIPULATION

    SBC: Barrett Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT IS TO DESIGN A MODULAR WRIST TO SUPPORT EVA ARM AND HAND GRASPING. THE WRIST DESIGN WILL BECONSISTENT WITH THE DURABILITY, LOW-BULK, AND HIGH-PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS OF WHOLE-ARM MANIPULATION BY ADAPTING MECHANICAL-TRANSMISSION TECHNOLOGIES NEWLY-INVENTED FOR THE WAM DEVELOPMENT AT MIT. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE RESULTING WRIST DESIGN WILL FEATURE A CABLED DIFFERENTIAL DRIVEN B ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. DESIGN OF AN INTEGRATED ARM/WRIST/HAND SYSTEM FOR WHOLE-ARM MANIPULATION

    SBC: Barrett Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. CHEMILUMINESCENT DEOXYOLIGONUCLEOTIDE PROBES FOR THE RAPID DETECTION OF INTACT COLIFORM BACTERIA AND TOTAL BACTERIA

    SBC: Bio-technical Resources, L.p.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. FIBER FLUOROMETRY FOR ON-LINE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF NUTRIENT SOLUTIONS

    SBC: Biotronics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NUTRIENT SOLUTIONS USED IN HYDROPONIC PLANT GROWING FACILITIES (SUCH AS NASA'S CELSS) SHOULD BENEFIT FROM ON-LINE MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL OF THE IONIC CONCENTRATIONS OF THE NUTRIENTS THAT MAKE UP SUCH SOLUTIONS. BIOTRONICS HAS DEVELOPED AN ON-LINE FIBER-LINKED FLUOROMETRIC ANALYZER POTENTIALLY CAPABLE OF MEASURING THESE IONIC CONCENTRATIONS. THIS FIBER-OPTIC BASED FLUOROMETRIC ANALYZER, DESIGNATED ...
