The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Imaging Spectropolarimetric Sensor for Airborne and Ground Based Retrieval of Aerosol Properties

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerodyne Research will develop, demonstrate and market HySPAR, the HyperSpectral Polarimeter for Aerosol Retrievals. Our HySPAR commercial market will comprise both product sales (selling copies of the sensor) and R&D-level aerosol field measurement services. HySPAR employs snapshot multi-angle (passive optical) spectropolarimetry to retrieve atmospheric aerosol macro and microphysical properties. ...

  2. Chlorophyll Fluorescence-Based Plant Health Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project concerns the development of a sensor intended to remotely monitor plant stress using active stimulation of plant chlorophyll fluorescence. The intensity and spectral band shape of leaf chlorophyll fluorescence in green plants has been linked to the physiological status of the plants and thus provides a good indicator of plant health. The proposed sensor will measure the relative inten ...

  3. A Photon-Counting Spectrometer for Elemental Analysis using LIBS

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

    Scientists have used laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) over the past decade to perform elemental analysis of soil, water and gases. The formation of laser-induced plasma, which produces a localized blackbody source for atomic emissions, enables this technology. Collection of the plasma's spectral signature by a lens or optical fiber allows examination for elemental components of numerous ...

  4. Surface Enhanced Silicon Avalanche Photodiodes for Near-IR Detection

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

    This Phase II SBIR builds on the exciting results demonstrated during the Phase I research. Using a new approach for enhancing the near-infrared (IR) sensitivity of high gain avalanche photodiodes (APDs), Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) will develop a reliable procedure to produce APD arrays with high sensitivity at 1064 nm. This work utilizes an innovative technique to microtexture the f ...

  5. Life-Size Haptic Device with Advanced Actuator-Drive Concept Providing Redundant

    SBC: Barrett Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    Barrett Technology, Inc. proposes to design and build a lightweight high-performance manipulator for micro-gravity muscle/bone strengthening and trauma rehabilitation with data quantification. The device will be used on board months-long interplanetary space-exploration missions. The enabling technology is based on the novel concept presented confidentially in this proposal. If Phase I demonstrate ...

  6. Extended range profiling

    SBC: Bauer Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We analyze a new, noncontact approach for sensing the topography of an optic. It offers (1) sub-nanometer accuracy; (2) several mm or more of dynamic range; and (3) accommodation of large surface slopes and structure. We add autofocusing to a focusing distance measuring interferometer to keep the beam focused on the test piece. The measurement is unaffected by small autofocusing errors. Thus, the ...

  7. Feedback-Controlled Detached Directional Solidification System

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a directional solidification system equipped with a novel sensor to maintain a separation gap between the crucible containing the charge and the solidifying charge. The interaction of crucible wall and the solidifying charge during growth of single crystals of electronics materials is known to influence generation of a myriad of defects with concomitant deleterious effect ...

  8. ACQUIRE: Agent-based Complex QUerying and Information Retrieval Engine

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The heterogeneous, distributive, and voluminous nature of NASA¿s Earth science data archives impose severe constraints on meeting the diverse requirements of thousands of users who analyze the data. Additionally, communication bandwidth limitations, time constraints, and a multiplicity of archives impose further restrictions on users and systems. What is required is a reliable, robust and efficie ...

  9. Agent-based Optimization of Distributed Air Traffic Management

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the transition from current Air Traffic Management (ATM) practices to the envisioned Distributed Air-Ground Traffic Management (DAG-TM) environment, inter-aircraft negotiation protocols will prove to be a key driver in shaping the balance between traffic safety, flow rates, and individual carrier operating objectives. We propose to develop an agent-based simulation that will serve as a tool to ...

  10. Label-Free, High-Throughput Proteomics Analyzer

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The Space Station Biological Research Program at NASA is developing advanced facilities, including cell culture systems to conduct microgravity research in cell biology onboard the Space Station. These systems will provide basic and essential infrastructure for space-based cell biology research. However, full utilization of the Space Station biological research facilities will require additional i ...
