  1. High Fidelity Multi-Mode Hyperspectral Multispectral Imager with Programmable Spectral Resolution

    SBC: KENT OPTRONICS INC            Topic: S304

    This SBIR Phase II proposal introduces a fast multi-mode hyperspectral-multispectral (MM-HS-MS) sensor with programmable spectral resolution. The sensor brings the following long-waiting benefits to the remote sensor community: (i) switchable between HS and MS operations, (ii) variable spectral resolution from 10nm to 560 nm; (iii) fast frame rate (54-1,750Hz), (iv) short full spectral range data ...

  2. Vacuum Compatible Percussive Dynamic Cone Penetrometer

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: X303

    Honeybee Robotics proposes to develop a vacuum compatible percussive dynamic cone penetrometer (PDCP), for establishing soil bin characteristics, with the ultimate intent of taking it to a flight system level. Penetrometers are used to determine the Cone index (CI), which is a composite index influenced by both soil compressibility and shear strength. A dynamic cone penetrometer is used to estima ...

  3. Impact-Actuated Digging Tool for Lunar Excavation

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: X301

    Honeybee Robotics proposes to develop a vacuum compatible, impact-actuated digging tool for the excavation of frozen and compacted regolith on the lunar surface and in the permanently shadowed craters of the lunar poles. This technology development effort will address the most challenging aspects of excavation in the lunar environment and work to develop a design relevant to a range of future lun ...

  4. Novel Heat Flow Probe Design and Deployment

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: S111

    We propose to develop a novel method for deploying heat flow sensors/heaters in a hole and also a novel approach to subsurface access using a percussive method. The sensor deployment concept consists of a deployable string of thermal sensors/heaters initially housed inside a hollow probe. As envisioned, the deployable sensor string would consist of thermal sensors/heaters mounted to small spring-l ...

  5. System-Level Development of Fault-Tolerant Distributed Aero-Engine Control Architecture

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: A207

    NASA's vision for an "intelligent engine" will be realized with the development of a truly distributed control system and reliable smart transducer node components; however a significant hurdle in its realization is the reliability of these components when subjected to the harsh operating environment throughout the engine. In this Phase I award, Impact Technologies, in collaboration with GE Aviat ...

  6. A Nonlinear Adaptive Approach to Isolation of Sensor Faults and Component Faults

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: A110

    Impact Technologies, LLC in collaboration with Wright State University and Pratt & Whitney, propose to develop innovative methods to differentiate sensor failure from actual system or component failure for advanced propulsion systems. In sharp contrast to many conventional methods which deal with either sensor failure or component failure but not both, our method considers sensor failure and compo ...

  8. The Development of Polarimetric and Nonpolarimetric Multiwavelength Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: S104

    High-performance polarimetric and nonpolarimetric sensing is crucial to upcoming NASA missions, including ACE and CLARREO and the multi-agency VIIRS NPP project. The objective of the proposed project is to use plasmonic/photonic hybrid crystals to develop multiwavelength polarimetric focal plane arrays (FPAs) that exceed performance requirements for ACE and CLARREO, while reducing costs through co ...

  9. A Solid State Tissue Equivalent Detector for Microdosimetry

    SBC: QEL            Topic: X1301

    QEL proposes to construct a tissue equivalent microdosimeter using a solid state tissue equivalent detector (SSTED). The Phase I study will produce the working SSTEDs and the Phase II will provide a viable completed microdosimeter. An organic semiconductor device based on QEL's novel design is described. The expected electrical properties of the device both in the quiescent state and under expo ...

  10. Low-Stress Iridium Coatings for Thin-Shell X-Ray Telescopes

    SBC: Reflective X-ray Optics, LLC            Topic: S205

    We propose to develop and commercialize a new type of low-stress iridium (Ir) X-ray mirror coating technology that can be used for the construction of high-resolution X-ray telescopes comprising thin-shell mirror substrates, such as the Soft X-ray Telescope (SXT) currently being developed for the Constellation-X mission. The urgent need for low-stress Ir coating technology is driven by the curren ...
