  1. Ionomer-membrane Water Processor System Design and EDU Demonstration

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: X301

    a. Paragon Space Development Corporation¿ (Paragon) proposes to continue our investigation into the use of microporous-ionomer membrane technology to improve the robustness and effectiveness and simplify water recovery processes for space applications. Improved robustness and effectiveness will be evident through (1) reduced loading onthe downstream post processor due to the ionomer¿s unique pr ...

  2. A ZigBee-Based Wireless Sensor Network for Continuous Sound and Noise Level Monitoring on the ISS

    SBC: WEVOICE, Inc.            Topic: O306

    The International Space Station (ISS) needs to keep quiet tomaintain a healthy and habitable environment in which crewmemberscan perform long-term and uninterrupted scientific researchunder microgravity conditions. Acoustic survey is now performedonce every two months using hand-held devices at 60 locationson the ISS. It takes a significant amount of precious crew timeand the sporadic monitoring p ...

  3. High Turndown Ratio, High Delta-Emittance, Variable Emissivity Electrochromics

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: X304

    Among thermal control methods, variable-emittance materials remain the most promising for addressing deficiencies of current systems (mechanical louvers, loop heat pipes, MEMS, electrostatics, phase change materials, others), especially, e.g., for missions in extreme light/dark environments, planetary platforms. This firm's unique, patented variable-emittance skin technology, based on conduct ...

  4. Frequency-Locked Single-Frequency Fiber Laser at 2 Micron

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S101

    Frequency-locked single-frequency 2 micron fiber laser is proposed to be used for airborne/spaceborne coherent lidar measurements, i.e., Active Sensing of CO2 Emissions over Nights, Days, and Seasons. The laser is based on our proprietary fiber technology and extensive experience in fiber laser development, which features a compact, highly stable, frequency-stabilized light source. Advanced freque ...

  6. Large Civil Tiltrotor Wake Hazard Assessment Tool

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: A209

    Both NASA and the FAA have identified large civil tiltrotors (LCTRs) as the most promising method for meeting FAA goals for extending future airport capacity, flexibility, efficiency and safety. This has led to important research at NASA exploring flight dynamics and handling qualities associated with these aircraft in terminal area operations. A critical gap in current research tools is a fligh ...

  7. A UAS-ATC Simulation Test-Bed

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: A501

    The proposed solution is to create a high fidelity simulation environment that merges a UAS ground control station (GCS) simulator with an air traffic control (ATC) simulator. The UAS GCS station will have the capability of introducing a single UAS or multiple UASs simulator operated by a single and/or multiple UAS pilots into the ATC. This simulation will have the ability to simulate manned aircr ...

  9. Low-Noise Analog APDs with Impact Ionization Engineering and Negative Feedback

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: S101

    Future NASA LIDAR missions require low noise and large area photodetectors operated at short-wave infrared (SWIR) wavelengths. Silicon avalanche photodiodes have very low responsivity for wavelength longer than 1.1 um; and while InP-based APDs have high responsivity in the SWIR region, they exhibit high noise equivalent powers (NEPs) due to the relatively high excess noise of bulk InP multiplicati ...

  10. Efficient in-band diode-pumped Q-switched solid state laser for methane detection

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: S101

    Growing interest in precise measurements of methane concentration and distribution in the Earth's atmosphere is stimulating efforts to develop LIDAR systems in the spectral region of 1.65 um utilizing Path Differential Absorption techniques. The key element of such systems is a high energy optical source with good beam properties operating in the vicinity of a methane absorption line. In-ba ...
