  1. High Efficiency MEMS Based Cryocooler

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: N/A

    In this SBIR program, Nanohmics is developing an ultrahigh efficiency MicroElectroMechanical System (MEMS) cryogenic cooling system. The cryocooler is based on a Stirling Engine that is operating in reverse mode (mechanical-to-thermal) transduction. These devices show particular promise as MEMS coolers for integrated circuits and other planar detection arrays. This program improves on past work to ...

  2. New and Improved Classifiers for Fault Diagnosis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Pattern classifiers are useful for many commercial and military applications such as target recognition, fault diagnostics, pattern recognition, etc. The main goal of this research is to improve the classification performance of existing classifiers. Our proposed architecture consists of two major parts. One is to improve the individual classification performance of each classifier. We propose to ...

  3. Integrated Device to Sample and Identify Surface Microorganisms

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: S403

    It is well known that terrestrial microorganisms can thrive in a microgravity environment. There is a significant risk of transporting opportunistic pathogenic microorganisms from Earth to extraterrestrial environments, as well as the possibility of unfamiliar biocontaminants entering Earth?s atmosphere via flight hardware. Because these scenarios could pose significant health threats, reliable ...

  4. Tunable, High Power Fiber Optic Laser for Lidar Applications

    SBC: SIGMA SPACE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a fiber laser which can be tuned over the range of 1530-1575 nm,produce high pulse energy at pulse rates from CW up to 10 KHz, has a narrow line width, and can simultaneously lase on two tunable wavelengths. Additionally, this laser will operate within the eye safe range. A laser of this type would be attractive for conventional lidar and altimeter systems as well as wind lid ...

  5. AlN 3D Thermal Packaging


    The project goal is to demonstrate feasibility of fabricating aluminum nitride (AlN) microelectronic package substrates with integral microchannel heat transfer structure. A novel fabrication approach was demonstrated in Phase I called ceramic stereolithography (CSL), which enables monolithic fabrication of the microchannel AlN substrates. The AlN microchannel devices are suited for cooling high ...

  6. Embedded Dual-Function Arc Fault Circuit Breaker/ Locator Based on OSA

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Within Phase 2, Williams-Pyro has designed, developed, and demonstrated a system for locating arc faults along aircraft cable. This fault localization is performed using signal reflectometry, in which an electrical waveform is transmitted through a length of wire. After the reflection is received, the characteristics of the reflected signal will be used to determine how far away the arc fault is l ...

  7. Wireless Ethernet-Based Data Acquisition System (WEBDAS)

    SBC: INVOCON, INC.            Topic: A504

    The feasibility of extremely low-power wireless RF sensors has been demonstrated by Invocon, Inc. and others, but the application of the technology to broader applications, particularly ground test systems, has been limited. Ground test facilities must be capable of providing reliable, laboratory grade instrumentation capabilities as part of a reconfigurable architecture in sometimes extreme envi ...

  8. A High Resolution Ultra-Wide FOV Telepresence Display

    SBC: Sensics, Inc.            Topic: H502

    NASA has embarked on an ever more ambitious path of developing modular space exploration systems, and human exploration missions. To enable missions that are envisioned for the future, advances in the human/robotic interface are required. This proposal provides a new telepresence interface, based on an ultra-wide field-of-view (FOV) HMD. This fully immersive HMD has a FOV which nearly matches the ...

  9. Biological Aerosol Spectrofluorometric Identification System

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: B402

    There is a need for a rapid, inexpensive technique to monitor bioaerosol loading in a manned space environment in order to insure the safety and health of the occupants. Condensate traps from air conditioners and heating and cooling ducts in spacecraft provide particularly efficient means for producing and transmitting airborne pathogens. The lack of regeneration of internal air with fresh air a ...

  10. Sn-SnSb Filled Carbon Fiber Anodes for High Energy Density Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Lithium Power Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S407

    Phase I demonstrated a new lithium ion anode material based on nanotechnology that exploits the high rate capability and excellent cycle life of a carbon fiber material and the high volumetric and gravimetric capacity of tin-based systems to yield a high capacity material. Phase II objective will be to further optimize the modified carbon fiber anode to a level where a practical gravimetric capaci ...
