  1. UNIVERSAL BOOK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: Advanced Applications            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. GENERATION OF LARGE OPTICAL SURFACES THROUGH CNC THERMALLY ASSISTED DUCTILE REGIME GRINDING

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DUCTILE CHIP FORMATION, UNLIKE THE BRITTLE CHIP FORMATION TYPICALLY OBSERVED IN DIAMOND GRINDING OF CERAMICS, DOES NOTLEAVE BEHIND SURFACE OR SUBSURFACE MICROCRACKS. ACCORDINGLY, MACHINE PROCESSES INVOLVING POLISHING CAN BE ELIMINATED FROM FABRICATION IF MATERIAL REMOVAL DURING GRINDING OCCURS THROUGH DUCTILE CHIP FORMATION. DUCTILE CHIP FORMATION IS ESSENTIALLY AN EXTRUSION PROCESS IN WHICH AN IN ...

  3. NEURAL NETWORKS TO MONITOR SPACE STATION DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM

    SBC: Als Co            Topic: N/A

    NEURAL NETWORKS WILL BE APPLIED TO MONITOR DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS ON SPACE STATION, WITH THE EVENTUAL GOAL OF DEVELOPING HYBRID NEURAL NETWORK, EXPERT SYSTEMS, AND CONVENTIONAL SOFTWARE SYSTEMS TO MONITOR AND TO CONTROL COMPLICATED SYSTEMS. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL CONCENTRATE ON USING A NETWORK TO MONITOR ONE DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM AND TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN NORMAL AND ABNORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS, AN ...

  4. THE FEASIBILITY OF USING SOLAR OPTICS IN REDUCED-G ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Brw            Topic: N/A

    THE INNOVATION INVESTIGATED IN THIS PROJECT IS THE USE OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND ALBEDO FOR TASK AND GENERAL ILLUMINATIONIN REDUCED-G ENVIRONMENTS. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE WILL BE TO DESIGN CONCEPTUALLY A SOLAR-OPTIC SYSTEM FOR A LUNAR BASE, AND TO DETERMINE ITS POWER, MASS, COST, AND PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS. THE DESIGN WILL BE COMPARED WITH A CONVENTIONAL FLUORESCENT-LIGHTING SYSTEM. THE DELIVERAB ...

  5. ENVIRONMENT FOR SPACECRAFT CONTAMINATION ASSESSMENT

    SBC: Caroware Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT IS AIMED AT DEFINING OF A COMPREHENSIVE EXPERT SYSTEM FOR THE STUDY, MANAGEMENT, AND ANALYTICAL TREATMENT OF CONTAMINATION-CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING TREATMENT AND PROCESSING OF FLIGHT-MEASUREMENT DATA. THE SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE MANAGEMENT SUPPORT, FLIGHT DATA AND HISTORICAL DATA USE, SELECTION AND PERFORMANCE OF ANALYTICAL STEPS, ANDCONTAMINATION-PROGRAM MONITORING. THE INNOVATION ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  6. A COMPOSITE MATERIAL FLYWHEEL FOR ENERGY STORAGE.

    SBC: Fare Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE COMPOSITE MATERIAL FLYWHEEL DESIGN IDEALLY SUITED FOR THE GSFC/UOM MAGNETICALLYSUSPENDED FLYWHEEL ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM ROTOR. THE PROPOSED ROTOR IS AN INTERFERENCE ASSEMBLED (I.E. PRESTRESSED) COLLECTION OF COMPOSITE MATERIAL THIN RINGS WHICH, WHEN ASSEMBLED TOGETHER, COLLECTIVELY FORM A THICK RING FLYWHEEL ROTOR. THERE ARE NO SPOKES OR STRESS CONCENTRATION G ...

    SBIR Phase II 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. COLORED NOISE SIMULATION AND CHARACTERIZATION, AND EFFECTS ON ATTITUDE ACCURACY

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    STANDARD TECHNIQUES FOR THE ESTIMATION OF ATTITUDE-DETERMINATION ACCURACY ASSUME THAT THE INPUT SENSOR DATA HAS UNCORRELATED, WHITE NOISE, AND THAT SIMULATORS GENERALLY PROVIDE WHITE NOISE. HOWEVER, REAL SENSOR NOISE IS GENERALLY OBSERVED TO HAVE MORE DOMINANT LOWER-FREQUENCY COMPONENTS. THEREFORE, THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP SOFTWARE TO SIMULATE COLORED NOISE EFFICIENTLY, TEST THE NOISE CHARACTERIS ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. CRYOGENICALLY COOLED CONTROLLED SWITCH FOR SPACE POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A SOLID STATE SWITCH FOR OPERATION AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE IS BEING DEVELOPED THAT WILL PROVIDE MULTI-MEGAWATT POWER CONDITIONING IN THE RAPIDLY EXPANDING FIELD OF LOW TEMPERATURE ELECTRONICS. SINCE EXISTING CONTROLLED SWITCHES ARE NOT DIRECTLY SUITABLE FOR CRYOGENIC OPERATION, ONLY A FUNDAMENTAL APPROACH CAN DEVELOP STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF LOW LOSS AND RELIABLE OPERATION IN THE TEMPERATURE RANGE B ...

  9. INVESTIGATION OF THE USE OF PERFLUOROCARBONS AS FIRE SUPPRESSION AGENTS

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. INFRARED FIBER ARRAYS FOR LOW BACKGROUND INFRARED ASTRONOMY

    SBC: Infrared Fiber Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INFRARED TRANSMITTING COHERENT FIBER BUNDLES WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR USE IN ASTRONOMICAL AND AEROSPACE SPECTROSCOPIC SYSTEMS. THESE SYSTEMS COULD BE TELESCOPE COUPLED FOR IN-FLIGHT OR GROUND-BASED USE. APPLICATIONS INCLUDE RE-MAPPING PIXELS TO MATCH THE DETECTOR ELEMENTS OF AN INFRARED FOCAL PLANE ARRAY DETECTOR, CURVED FIELD CORRECTION, MULTI-OBJECT SPECTROSCOPY OR SPECTROSCOPIC MAPPING, IMAGE MAGN ...
