  1. Dropsonde System for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S309

    A small, modular dropsonde launcher is being developed for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Some critical measurement needs can only be satisfied by in-situ measurements. Key examples of such measurements include detailed atmospheric profiles, point meteorological conditions on the surface, and in-situ measurements for calibration and validation of remote sensing systems.Phase I work saw the des ...

  2. High Fidelity Down-Conversion Source for Secure Communications using On-Demand Single Photons

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: O105

    In this NASA SBIR Phase II effort, AdvR will design and build an efficient, fully integrated, waveguide based, source of spectrally uncorrelated photon pairs that will enable accelerated research and development in the emerging field of quantum information science. The key innovation is the use of sub-micron periodically poled waveguides to produce counter propagating photon pairs using quasi-phas ...

  3. Observation Platform for Dynamic Biomedical and Biotechnology Experiments using the ISS Light Microscopy Module

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: O303

    The objective of the research is the completion of an observation platform for the ISS Light Microscopy Module (LMM) as it currently resides on the U.S. Fluids Integration Rack (FIR). In its current configuration the LMM accommodates a Contained Bubble Experiment, and it has no substage illuminator and limited epi-illumination. There is a need for future use of the LMM in more versatile fluids a ...

  4. High Radiation Resistance Inverted Metamorphic Solar Cell

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: S303

    The innovation in this SBIR Phase II project is the development of a unique triple junction inverted metamorphic technology (IMM), which will enable the manufacturing of very lightweight, low-cost, InGaAsP-based multijunction solar cells. The proposed IMM technology is based on ELO (epitaxial lift-off) and consists of Indium (In) and Phosphorous (P) solar cell active materials, which are designed ...

  5. Hot Gas TVC For Planetary Ascent Vehicle

    SBC: TOTALLY BENIGN ENTERPRISES INC            Topic: S308

    A Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) uses solid rocket motors to propel soil samples into orbit, but the motors cannot provide steering. Flexseal TVC control is planned for the first stage while hydrazine thrusters will be used for spin stabilization of the second stage. This approach is heavy and results in a spinning sample container in orbit, which is difficult to recover. Wickman Spacecraft & Propulsi ...

  6. Fiber Coupled Pulse Shaper for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Lidar

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II effort will develop an all-diode laser and fiber optic based, single frequency, sub-nanosecond pulsed laser source for high resolution lidar applications benefiting SLR, LIST and DESDynI missions. This laser will have a user adjustable pulse width from 2ns to 400ps and will be ideal for seeding high power fiber amplifiers for short pulse, high reso ...

  7. Micro GC's for Contaminant Monitoring in Spacecraft Air

    SBC: Cbana Laboratories            Topic: X203

    Based on the successful separation of 20 compounds using a 1 m coated microcolumn in Phase I, we propose to design a new micro-gas chromatograph (microGC) system to separate and detect of all contaminants listed in NASAs "Spacecraft Maximum Allowable Concentrations for Airborne Contaminants (SMACs)" using cabin air as the carrier gas, and to integrate the entire system to maximize the detection of ...

  8. Integrated Planar Lightwave Circuits for UV Generation and Phase Modulation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    The primary goal of this SBIR effort is delivery of a compact, robust, highly efficient, fiber-coupled UV module to provide the required 355nm light for integration into HSRL's UV interferometric-based measurement system. An additional goal of this effort is to prototype a compact, robust, fiber-coupled UV PLC module which produces the required spectrally formatted 355nm light for stabilizat ...

  9. A Waveguide Based, High Power Pockels Cell Modulator for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Slicing

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    The Goal of this STTR is to develop a high speed, high power, waveguide based modulator (phase and amplitude) and investigate its use as a pulse slicer. The key innovation in this effort is the use of potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) waveguides making the high power, polarization based waveguide amplitude modulator possible. Furthermore because it is fabricated in KTP, the waveguide component w ...

  10. Advanced Flow Analysis Tools for Transient Solid Rocket Motor Simulations

    SBC: Tetra Research Corporation            Topic: T901

    The challenges of designing, developing, and fielding man-rated propulsion systems continue to increase as NASA's mission moves forward with evolving solid propulsion requirements. Recent developments in simulating solid rocket motor environments include Lagrangian particle tracking, particle combustion models, dynamic particle drag and breakup models, and two phase impingement phenomena. T ...
